I just wanted to Point out that TPS extra event content expired after the MWO WC 2017 Finals.
However, I continued to support it for the Advent Event because it started before the TSP expired and the Hellspawn event because the hellspawn release countdown started before the TSP expired.

This Years Tournament Supporter Pack turned out pretty epic! Not only did it help build the prize pool for the tournament players but it gave the purchaser a big list of content and bonus prizes.

The Tournament Supporter Pack is no longer for Sale so stay tuned for next years pack!

From my experience from the Halloween event with a grand prize after earning so many loot bags... I'm not impressed with a repeat of that event set up again... I went onto burn out last time you did that. Now you've basically required it again with 200 matches played. That's a lot of matches to play. (Hopefully I don't lose power in the middle again like I did last time.)

I don't know how else a "grand prize" could be done for the loot bag event, but having to do 100+ matches is a little rough... I like to play this game for fun. I don't exactly want it to be trying to play the part of a second job.


I will comment that I do like having all listed active events in one place. Well thought out on that PGI.

I like that you can get 2 stockings per FP match if you get a 250 MS, that makes FP much more worthwhile during such events!

Thanks!

Not to dimish your perspective, but if you can get a game in on the 27th you still get 2 hero mechs... Posted Image

So my point is that even if you can't achieve the grind you still can achieve some significant swag...

You do not have to finish all of them. The mech is a bonus for the truly dedicated (or truly without life, your call :). You get free stuff playing shooting stompy mechs. Enjoy the event.

Thanks a bunch, this should be a lot easier to keep track of for those of us who still use the browser.

Now all we need is that C-Bill sale...

The 250 MS also makes it much harder for scouting missions to qualify :(

Do event developers know how the matchscore works in FP? 250? Do they know that the match can be 30min long, the player can participate all the time and get less than 250 score if his team lost the match? That part is disgusting for me. Ok, seems they don't want people getting these loot bags easy-peasy through scouting. Then exclude scouting and set 100 match score requirement for a loot bag. I thought you want to make people play FP, maybe introduce new players in it and introducing will be rough if these new players not in an organized team. The FP mode as usual gets total misunderstanding if not the utter hate from the event developers.

Oh, absolutely. I didn't mean to sound like I'm not being thankful. I just recall the push to get that done last time in October... It was really getting frustrated towards the end of things. Not having power for almost a week of the event didn't help... (which is no fault of PGI.) I just wish there could be a less intensive way of setting up that prize goal.


I just realized I'm going to have to be aiming for a 250 match score in FP... That's not going to be fun. I'll just be counting on the extra 25 loot bags from the Dec 27th prize (I noticed that too, which I will give applause to PGI for that) for that portion...

I dunno if we would want people flooding scouting trying to get the loot bags double quick compared to FP anyways....

That brings up a good point, *could* one hypothetically get lootbags from scouting? I would think:
1) only get one/match
2) have a lower MS req

I mean, it's just like in other games, you have your achievements that are only for the truly insane.... yes, I'm talking about myself from my WoW days...

Pleaee DO NOT lower the match score needed for the stuffers. If you don't earn it, you do not deserve it.

I'm not going to fight to get that 250 match score, not if it requires 25 minute faction warfare matches, on top of the wait time. I don't have 41+ hours to spend this holiday season with work and family. There's not a single mech on that list that's worth the hassle. I'm already burnt out from the last big event like this. I'm also wanting to take a break but cannot. PGI stuck me with 60 days premium time from the Osiris and another 60 from the Hellspawn. I'm no longer going to preorder any packs because of that. I'm not losing money because you offer a premium time incentive then force tired players to keep playing by instantly activating it. That's how people like me leave and never want to come back.

So, you're saying MS members are bad and need help to get the 250 FP match score? Posted Image

They could make it so that you get 1 loot back for 150 match score in fp, and another if you get 250
That way if you fail to make 250, but still got 150 like in a qp match, you still get something.
