Huh, nothing for non Piranha owners I see... Been away for a bit, that SOP?

Don't worry. By the looks of it, there isn't anything for us piranha owners either.

I just realized that this event shows nicely the part of the problem we have with the match score:
PGI still thinks that damage is the only thing counting, even (or specially?) on light mechs.

This event could count flanking, lance in formation, scouting, capping, tag assisting...whatever. But no, it had to be damage done.

Next on The B33f: 10+ flamers

Yeah I was watching him last night for his thoughts on the PRI, than the next thing I knew I dropped against him. XD but still cool. I like his stream.

Probably Wed or Thursday they'll announce a 'Didn't buy the Piranha so here's an event' event.

Actually, I hope that doesn't happen until after 4 PM PST (GMT -08:00) Friday, 2018-01-26... My Electrical Power Company thought it would be funny to knock me out during most of that day. I may know the problem's coming, but it really ticks me off when I try to be ready for anything. <_<

I may have been an early proponent, but having a Real Life Issue in the way has made me hesitant. After that time-based issue is over, however, then I would be totally happy to see an Event to attract Non-Piranha Owners for the Piranha Pilots to battle with. :mellow:

I think that since there are all these fishermen going after the Merpeople piloting Piranhas there should be a headhunter type event. 10/20/30/40 kills equals something decent but not new mech pack release stuff.

Probably would have to be "Kill Assist" for those counts... Smaller counts if only counting Piranha Mechs... Somewhere inbetween Large and Small for "Kill and/or KMDD" for allowing any chassis to count... And an Event like that would need at least 5 to 7 Days to run, possibly more... You've got some ideas there, though. :)

I would again like to emphasize how much I would appreciate an early announcement of events.
Sure, this time it was to be expected, but it's a bad habit you got there, in my opinion.

Uh, the Piranha mech challenge was announced in the countdown to Piranha release news.

4 days to go,
Hm, broke 100 DMG after my first 4 matches (unskilled PIRs) and i very much doubt i will hit 1000 with any of them.


Edit: Okay, needed to get used to the little fish, and sober :)

I also liked it when the new mech launch events included something for those that didn't buy the pack. I'm selective with what packs I buy, so I enjoyed the past events where there was a bonus for taking out the newly launched mechs.

Well it kind of sucks for new 'mech owners if EVERYBODY is gunning for them...

Release-Events are a bad idea. 4 PIR per game every game is tooo much.

4 PIR per side/match happened perhaps on the first two days, and they would be played that much anyway. I do not believe that the event had that much impact on that.

I'm gunning for everyone on the other team all the time anyway. Never pass up a target :-)
