Pretty good selection of mechs at 50% cbill discount. Too bad I just spent a lot on the last sale so I’m low on cbills again. Definitely buying a warhawk prime though.

This is the first challenge that has rewards with bolt on with specific mechs. Great idea PGI!

And better if bolt on reward was token that you could use and select one that you like on mech that you own and use. Same goes to Solaris rewards.

So the in-game (client) running text says all 3 Challenges are LIVE. But the Event tab says they won't start until next 20 hours.

Are Invasion (which I don't have) and Resistance (which I do have) challenges exclusively special primary variants on any variants of those chassis?

LCT1E champion... best MC to cbills exchange... 380MC turns into something like 1.9 million cbills if you just turn around and sell the mech, but the spider and commando champions give a pretty good exchange also.

Hmm, might buy the IS chassis I don't own yet: Spider, Jagermech, Thunderbolt and Victor. Not sure though, have to have a look at configs.

Challenges are meh. I don't care for boltons at all, so even if I'd accidentally complete one of the challenges, I won't mount it.
But a nice reward idea nonetheless, since there are players that want these.

Trial by fire event: It is significantly easier to accomplish the damage values with clan mechs than with IS ones, which again isn't reflected in the challenges. Rewards are okish. If you'd play anyway, it's a nice bonus. Not sure if it is enough to motivate some that don't play every day.

Meanwhile I'm probably sitting on something like 96 mil from the last event and +50% hero bonus weekend, so I might be finally getting an Ebon Jag and Shadowhawk

EDIT: ...crap, this account doesn't have a Black Knight...

FFS another damaged based event.

Games have just started improving after the last challenge ended and now we're straight back into another one. Sigh...

Damage farming crap here we go again.

Also as someone else pointed out there's a sale on every five minutes now. Is PGI not telling us something?

I'm sorry, but I took one look at that part of your post and ended up doing a *facedesk*... I almost feel like you have forgotten the old adage about not everyone having the same mileage in piloting experience. -_-

To elaborate, not everyone will find Clan Mechs to be easy to use or do damage with. Many will find the I.S. Mechs are easier because of the Durability Quirks that allow them to stay alive in battle. Those blasted Clan Mechs are just PAPER versus I.S. Mechs right now, and if Chris Lowrey's Current Roadmap For Balancing In October (https://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/268864-alpha-balance-pts-results-and-roadmap/) goes through, the I.S. will be "Easy Mode" for the rest of MWO's existence. I would prefer personally that PGI leave alone Clan Damage and Heat Gen (as well as I.S. Heat Gen), and Balance through a combination of Ghost Heat Penalty Linkage and Heat Dissipation. Whenever I take an I.S. Contract (kind of like I have right now), I want those Clan Weapons to sting if I screw up, and not be something to shrug off as an I.S. Mech Pilot on the battlefields. :angry:

Is it actually working though? Curious as thought I'd take a break today as event doesn't start till 23.00 to 01.00 EU depending on where you are.

Its a very low damage amount though in fairness - more having to swap over a lot of mechs or just use trial ones.

I guess it's being confused with the sale, which is already running. The challenges start in a little more than 12 hours from now.

That kind of event again^^
>They should increase the penalties for team damage during that kind of events.<

.and Sale after Sale...They must really need money... Whats up? Taken the mouth to full with " to bring you the MW game you all dreamed about" ??? Hahahhahahaahhaaaa....and oh btw: We´re still waiting to see the promised mWO
Iam going to suspend for the item reward challenges. Not going to damage my nervs again for some items with all the "high skill "lrm&mg heroes who are shooting everything that looks like a mech no matter if teammates or enemys..Stopped counting how often my SRM brawler was teamkilled be friendly lurmers cause its to hard for them to take even once al ook at mini map if the teammate is engaged with the target close..

EDIT: WOOOW All required mechs for the Trial by fire challnege/the ones who brings not only items) are avaible as trials? Seems i was wrong as i said they are never going to learn anything (ok the real important stuff they still are never ever going to learn) but its a start, . They really learned 1 thing!! someone has to mark that with a red cross in the calendar
