Happy to see this event extended, I had written it off as too time consuming during the holidays until the bonus FP loot bags came out a couple of days ago.

PGI, Thank You for the "2017-2018 Stocking Stuffer 3" Holiday Event Extension. I think I might be finally able to finish my first Stocking Stuffer in the three that I've been here for. Having this Time Bonus puts me within striking distance! :D

For anyone else passing by, this Event has already reached a Review Rating of...

10.0/10

...in other words, "Perfect", and the only thing that could make it better and 'break the bank' would have been to do something affecting Normal Match Score in Faction Invasion Mode. Of course, not docking Match Score before you've lost your very last Mech that you can bring onto the field is probably rather long overdue. But right now, with all that PGI (and specifically Matt Newman) have done, plus the fact that this is the Holidays and New Year, I'm not going to be picky. B)

~Mr. D. V. "Excuse me, getting back to the battlefields now!!!" Devnull

No arguments here. I was on leave from 27th and just got back, barely managed to make the 27th day gift event few hours before I left, with full knowleadge that I've done only few dozens of the loot bags, even all the nice premium time I got from them was lost.

Now I got some chance left to make the full loot bag event and get a freebie mech, not that I don't need it as I can buy pretty much all the mechs I want, but it's nice to have an extra reason to play and also hopefully more people will be playing FP which I like to play during these events.

I see now it's more faster and steady to get loot bags from FP, very nice.

It makes me sad, to be honest. At start of the event I made the maths, how many days I had, how many matches a day I would need to do...and I skipped it, because it would not work out.
Then came the bonus stockings in FP and I managed to get the 200, but still skipped on doing the full 100 in QP and 50 in FP...because it still did not check out.
Now, for a second time it's made easier to achieve the goals...but as I passed the last days, again, I do not have the time to beat the deadline.

I'm not mad, but please, for the future, make reasonable deadlines (it was this family filled between-christmas-and-silvester-time!) and reasonable goals (250 in FP is too high, 100 in QP too low) and then stick to them, instead of making the event unneccessary difficult and then fixing it again and again. You SHOULD have the experience from the past events.

Also I wanted to tell you that I'm thankful you did not start the event during christmas itself, I'm not sure anyone commended you for it.

EDIT: And please, make "playing the objectives" a thing. I would hate being a FP-player right now. At least in scout mode.
(while we are at it, strengthen the base HP (not the turrets though) in incursion mode, so light rushes are less effective)

These extensions are nothing more than a **** you to the guys who didn't happen to be home during the holidays and did the math. Grindy events forcing me to play faction play. No.

Thanks for the extension!

I don't know if I'll be able to pull it since I discarded it at the beginning after doing the math. We'll see. Thanks anyway!

I would say mech bays in the stockings would have been perfect. What are we supposed to do with all these c-bills?

Well, this is a nice event. Maybe more such events and some focus towards balance and we will see new people one day.

Didn’t see the bonus bag challenge till now, like most of you I just wrote off even trying fp due to the initial requirements.

How does the bonus challenge work? If you get a 150 match do you also get a bag each for the 100 and 50 tiers?

Yep. Super easy to get to 100 now in FP, even just by Scouting.

You get 2 bags if 250MS + 1 from 150 + 1 from 100 + 1 from 50 = total 5 bags. The 150 and 100 have limits though.

This is just perfect! Finished yesterday all the non-250 Match Score ones and now have a freebie Stalker :D

The Event has DRASTICALLY lowered waiting times for Faction Warfare so I can finally play that part a bit too next to Quick Play!
