these last 2 events, could had been done in both, don't understand why they were not


Because many many times people asked from PGI to do not run event simultaneusly for both mode QP and FP.

Need Red White and Pinks on sale as well.


That is a fantastic idea - how about it PGI, Valentine colours sale; as there isn't a boy pin up to decorate our mechs with?

My heart sank when I saw the number of lance in formations required, then I realised I might have attended The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Who Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too.

Thanks for spreading those over the duration of the event @Matt and not cockblocking the player base :)

I got 14 Lance In Formation bonuses in a single match, and none of them are reflected on my score. Posted Image

I just needed to log in to like that Zoolander reference upthread. Connection to PGI servers still a bit too naf to enjoy playing.

Event sounds nice, next time I guess.

BTW guys I can't seem to find the Retro Arcade Warhorn and Retro Handheld Warhorn for preview. Are they not available to be purchased?

Edit: Ohh, I just checked. Those are not available in store.... >.<

The solo and group kill assists update just after the match ends, but the lance formations take up to one hour to update.

Faction play doesn't count for this event : Only Quick Play does.

A kill doesn't count as a kill assist : You could kill the whole enemy team by yourself and not get a single kill assist.

Still waiting on the red, pink and white color sale.
And maybe the heart decals from last year's Valentine's event.

Actually, the "Group Play Kill Assists" are also on the Hourly Delay. If you don't believe me, just check it after every match during an hour, particularly when you do your first session on the Next Day's Cycle. ;)

If I can safely assume that you're speaking of "Mountain Standard Time" (GMT -07:00), then you'll be looking at "February 16, 2018 @ 5:00 PM MST" as the time when that Sale Phase begins. From there, it runs for 2 Days (48 Hours) and ends on "February 18, 2018 @ 5:00 PM MST", so I hope you don't miss the window. :huh:

Indeed, as the Archer could signify "Cupid", and an Arrow is what they fire from their "Bow"... Nice catch! :D

just being candor here,
Don't really like this event, the 1 mil is cool, not a decal user, still cool for those that do, I mean, do you really stop and look at the enemies decals ??

using LFG is just another form what you already have happening, One doesn't really know who you're teamed with, and some just won't ton down, getting stuck in a light for the rest of the team can play, made it tougher to get the lance formation part completed.
98% of the players still don't communicate, and you're in the same group

have met a few cool players that I didn't know existed, and there are some that know what their doing . . surprise surprise, knew there were some, more then I thought

sitting in LFG was just as bad as watching that searching circle, just in group there was less of a wait, a lot less, but the Waaaait for everyone to ready up. was just as bad as watching that circle

I see something that could be added that would had helped, having Voip available while in the group window, then organized before the battle may go smoother, and possible faster.
getting 3 ppl toning down the same time and seeing 120 tons available, and the lead presses launch . . Ugh

for me the Event was okayish, because the C-Bills, the rest was just the same headache just in a different form

There are numerous TeamSpeak and Discord servers people could have joined up and looked for groups. It is a community provided service, I'm sad that PGI does not help to advertise this to players in some fashion or another as it is a supplement to core game functionality.

Also it helps being part of a unit - people actually group up to do these challenges and there is usually lots of fun to be had while doing so.

I hear it is better in QP and Faction to be part of a unit. I wish I could but I am playing casually here as my schedule is messed up.

The assists have to be all in one match?
