250,000 GXP


Outside of the top 3, this is probably the best reward tier.

You guys should have a solaris event in the final week to make the race to the finish line a little more exciting (and populated).


Not sure, don't want to re-configure my Centurion once again for this failed and boring mode...

Also - in light of the reward structure posted... I believe there is a better way to do it as per below image.

My reasons for the above changes? (which are just an idea/suggestion here)

1. GXP - is (arguably) more important that c-bills, for most players at the taller end of Solaris Ladder as GXP helps cuts down the 80-odd match grind required to skill out a mech these days (if you have the cbills). Not giving GXP to those inside the top 100 doesn't make a lot of sense. This change also brings it closer into line with Faction Play reward style as well which is good thing IMO.

2. Mechbays up high with adjusted MC - Who doesn't like discounted Mechbays?

2. MC further down the line. You want to encourage people to play, right? Filter the MC out to a new tier - Top 500. 250MC isn't even a Mechbay. Given you can earn 150MC simply from a 'weekend' events, for 3 months of Solaris, this is a nice compromise.

I appreciate this means PGI would need to be a bit more liberal with the MC giving out. However I cannot think of a better way to invigorate/motivate people to play Solaris than better rewards. Especially once you make it into the Top 500, not just the top 10.

This also takes into account the Solaris match rewards vs time spent is extremely low compared to Quick Play. I can earn 3-6x as much in QP in a 10min period than I can in Solaris which is, for me, on game every 5-7mins (load times/play time etc).


So a better 'end game purpose' to Solaris would help there if the season is going to be 3 months long. Personally I'd like to see a 60 day season or even 30 days. Also cut down the rewards inline with that. I know 90 days is a fav @ PGI HQ but it's a very long time to grind and does not encourage people to keep playing once they reach the top as they are not getting any ELO per win - So why risk a loss? Given there is no ELO decay which has me miffed to this day. So either make the seasons shorter or implement ELO decay to keep people playing.

Anyway - Just some suggestions after chatting to a few peeps around the traps this arvo.

Cheers.

I agree with ASH.

The amount of GXP for top 500 is the best reward. I would prefer 250k GXP over literally every other tier reward with the possible exception of rank 1.

3 minute wait time and nobody in queue is a killer.
1 minute wait was better.
30 seconds is best.

I'd say a lot of the players with some serious time spent in the game will not value GXP over MC or even c-bills. I have over 1.1 mill GXP and no idea what to do with it since I'm almost perpetually space poor... with the current economy setup it is very hard to earn any space cash while levelling 'mechs.

Just confirming this also counts for 2v2 Ladder as well? So a potential 14 times and not seven as posted here?

Given there are 7 divisions in 2v2...



wait...!

I know we had a 2v2 queue back in day 1.. is it still alive, given it was hard to impossible to get a game in it, from day 2+?

No GXP for top 100? But there isn't even anyone in queue to throw against :)

Would love to play Solaris, but couldn't even get a single group match in any division last night. Maybe this will spark some interest.

I could not get a game of 2v2 after the 3rd or 4th week unfortunately... I would assume it still counts if there is still a Queue and Leaderboard for it.

Behold! The field in which grew Solaris VII.

Lay thine eyes upon it and thou shalt see it is barren.

Give me credits to buy bolt ons and i would play solaris a lot more.

Some random bolt on for something i might not even own in a supply cash isn't cutting it.
