Hmmm, does this imply future MW4, MW2, and even MW1 anniversary events?

Probably doesn't imply Mechassault anniversaries other than April Fool's, if even that.

Very infrequent, but they did appear in 2-3 events a year IIRC.

Going to be somewhat hard for me to get the five 500 match score done, but for a free hero I will try. This is the type of challenging and rewarding event I want to see.

I believe event requirements should be able to be reasonably obtained within the time frame of said event. Asking for a single 500 match score match might be more reasonable to the (more or less) average player. Asking for 5 of such matches I think might be a little much.

I realize that a hero mech is up for grabs, and it probably shouldn't be easy, but getting 5 matches with a match score above 500 is going to be a daunting task for most of us that play. Also consider the list of other objectives we need to reach on top of said singular requirement mentioned.

I'm all for a challenge, but I think expecting 5 matches with 500+ match score may be a bit too much for the aloted time frame. Maybe it's just my opinion, but that's my opinion.

500 match score once is a little too easy, at least if you're using proper builds.

If any change is to be made maybe go with 500 score 2-3 times, or 450 score 5 times (it's really frequent to get just a hair under that 500 magic number).

I think either fewer instances of 500 or 5 matches of 450 might be more reasonable. I can't tell you how rare it is for me to get above 500 match score, but I've seen 400+ often enough. I've even gotten that 499 match score last time we had a 500+ match score event going... That was frustration...

Well, I guess back to what i did for half of March... run the same handful of mechs over and over again... Or maybe being match score driven... AMS?

Edit: Also, I'm talking about the average player as well. I am certain I can get 500+ match score a few times, but other players are going to have a hard time with this. Even with that said, I'm already fairly daunted by this task... especially when combined with solo kills. I'm known for getting KMDDs on targets, but fail all to often to land that last damaging hit... Posted Image

Yep. It's going to be non stop - an event that makes people actually aim for something that isn't exactly easy... Heaven forbid that users will actually have to try.

I mean the last event with UAV detections just saw the usual Kamikaze dive-bombers running in and popping a UAV, dying and then leaving the match all in the first 90s...

Time to play serious for a change.

Don't much like the 500 match score goals, they basically require me to play my top performers rather than the ones im skilling up or 'for fun' mechs but I have no use for a assault, outside of those rare 'go use an assault if you want mc' challenges - and thats what the dusty Victor is for. I would just vendor it for Cbills and put a medium in the mech bay :P

Thanks Matt for answering my prayer with Engine sale. Ready to dump 50-100 mil on it.
Now the ISC tournament is starting, can we also please have XP related sales such as triple XP conversion?
(note: double conversion is not good)

It's going to help immensely for players getting GXP to skill up their Mechs!
Double XP event would be really nice as well.

Thanks!

5 matches with scores over 500 might finally drive people to play FW. But if it's looking too hard to get matching going maybe changing it to 1 match of 500 if people are having difficulties.

Is the nova hero included in the drop ship sale? I don't see it listed right now.

How so?

If you use 4 mechs and don't break 1500 damage you aren't going to get 500 match score in FP the way it calculates spread across chassis used.

Easier to do it in normal Quick Play IMO.

I'm going to score that hero. It's easy to to trick the match score system. Awesome mission pgi. Two massive thumbs up for also falling on the Aussie Friday afternoon session.
