Deep Six: "Damage a target and get away without being hit 6 times" How is the game tracking this? Is it fully not getting hit at all . . . and if that's the case in what timeframe and by just the person you hit, or anyone returning fire? Is it just a different way of saying the "hit and run" award (wherein you can take damage, but have to take less than 10 points within the ~5 seconds of doing damage)?

This one seems a little ambiguous, and difficult to track.

I assume it's just a "hit and run." Probably just "perform 6 hit and runs" is my guess.

That's what I'm figuring, as well, but clarification would be nice. Normally they just say the specific in-game award you're going for.

It wouldn't be the first time the text on a challenge was worded in a specific way, but the actual thing tracked was an existing award(which was different from the wording)

Do at least 10 damage to a target and get away without getting hit for 30 seconds - 6 times

This looks like a whole lot of 'just play' challenges as they seem too convoluted in some cases to chase after intentionally - especially the savior kills.

I can confirm now that it is "hit-and-run" awards. First match, 1 "hit and run", 1 point of credit towards the challenge; and I was grazed while fleeing that hit-and-run attack.

@Mr. Matt Newman --- Nice punchline with the snow-buried WarHammer IIC there! I would say it PERFECTLY jabs Russ and all your other fellow Staff for overworking you so hard. :D

By the way, PLEASE make the Next Set Of Advent Dailies into a Solid Pack like this. Having time to jump back and forth to finish them is HIGHLY APPRECIATED, and extremely enjoyable! :)


@Everyone Else --- I can easily bet you before these are done, someone will complain about the lack of a WarHorn in the mix of these. I just feel it coming... :P

EDIT :: By the way, is it just me, or was any ahead-of-time alert about this coming just a little too buried? Argh... I bet somebody didn't read some posts that I left for them in other threads. *sigh* :(

No jabs intended everyone here at Piranha works very hard my work just happens to be more forward facing.

I can do the next Advent set in a series of packs as well.

I will be posting updates today.
  • Warhammer IIC Re-Pre-Order and The Later early adopters Extention and Additional Variant
  • Countdown to Charger and Hatamoto Chi
  • The next phase of the mech Sale I promised
I will be posting the details about the following after the patch on Dec 11th
  • Advent Event Phase 2 (and 3?)
  • Charger and Hatamoto Chi Event
  • Holiday Bonus Event
  • Stocking Stuffer Event and Details
  • Also, the Holiday Sales will be planned posted as relevant

Yeah, there wasn't much advance warning but I think the challenges should be doable in the time allotted.
I could have done the advance warning today and just started the event tomorrow...
but that would have been less time...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Cheers!
Matt

Yes and a bunch of new decals we made for the holidays :)
With Phase 1 (being kinda late and hastily put together TBH) I focused on Older holiday content.

On the last event. We have to get "111 kill assists"? Is this a typo Matt Newman?

Understood on your being short on time there... No worries... I'm very thankful to have the additional day of time, and think you set this one's duration up perfectly. ^_^

I'll be watching for -- and looking forward to -- those Decals (and all the other Event things) when they do arrive. :D

I think that our friendly Matt Newman will agree with my saying that's NOT a typo. Don't worry, you'll get those easily through normal gameplay... Unless you're trying too much to land Killing Blows. :P




Now pardon me, everyone... I hear my Dropship calling me. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!! ;)

Dumb Question(s) Time -
TSP still gives the 10% cbills and xp until the end of the year, correct?
TSP no longer provides an additional 250,000 cbills, correct?
TSP 2019 starts on Jan 1st, right? *hint hint*

well in the span of 8 games where I lost all faith in humanity I got pretty much all the easy ones done with out trying. Except for hit and run, which I got a whopping 0 of cause the mech I was using. Missed the savior kill one by 1 , oddly enough I got 3 savior kill credits for 1 kill, guess assists count.

Got 23/111 of the kill assists, and somewhere over 2k towards the 8k damage done one.
