Ok question.... some of us have already spent time playing S7 when it was "Kicked off" after patch. Do we get credit for those stats?

Next question, please. If you really think they would ever calculate in retroactively from something done before an Event, then you're kidding yourself. They want actual activity during an Event, which means your efforts must be done during the Event Period. -_-

Frankly, this is going to be 700 (MC) and 8 Million (C-Bills) that I'll have to miss out on. I learned my lesson a long time ago about Solaris Mode, and it was not fun. <_<

I hear ya about the start of an event.... but the "calculation" I don't think would be that arduous the season is 1 day old. I simply think the "Kick Off" event should have been launched at Kick Off and was thus curious

Alright. Thanks for the clarification. :)

Sorry about the sharp post earlier. I was in a really bad mood at the time. :(

The guy who's name escapes me dominated div 7 with the Vindicator in a previous season, blame him.

Honestly it looks like you stand a real chance of getting something if you can stand doing the minimum matches, congrats on your title by the way, I suppose you get a decal that tells everyone to look out for the arena god?

This applies to every division, including 2v2s

Divisions are still bad, better than last season but tonnage is still all over the place which still leads to some real lopsided matches.

I can't believe they put KFX in Div 7.

Instead of dividing the queue of Solaris players into 7 divisions...

Allow players to switch each of their 7 divisions on/off, so they can queue up in a single common Solaris queue for multiple divisions of their choice at the same time.

It's the difference between having ~2 players per division queue that the matchmaker is unable to balance, and having a single Solaris queue of ~14 players queuing up for multiple divisions of their choice at the same time, which the matchmaker is then able to balance.

And the difference between getting that faster balanced matchmaking, instead of these current slow and sadistic matchmakings.

Very sensible... So probably too logical for whoever is responsible for MWO's abomination of an UI :-P

Seriously guys, the Solaris interface is giving me and my friends PTSD.

I might give it a shot, but if it takes longer than 10 min to find a match, then it is not worth my time.

For the minimalists it would be nice if the "kill 7 mechs" could be changed to "achieve 7 kills or kmdd in Solaris" - winning because an enemy didn't manage its heat and suicides that way should also count for this event part. Posted Image

We need a way to check "I will take a match in Divisions 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7" and get into the queue for all of them, with the SSR rating for each queue checked separately.
Guessing which division MIGHT have someone else in queue is a losing game and un-fun.

Some of the missions are requirements that cannot be completed as far as I know since division 6 and 7 aren't working for some reason.
