because since the patch invasion is apparently locked into 55T and under...


Q: Did you not read the patch notes?
A: The patch notes stated that a portion of FP was unable to be updated with the new FP patch that came out yesterday, and will be hot fixed later. Till then, only a small portion of FP is available.

From patch notes:

Quote

*** [FACTION PLAY DELAY: MATCHES WILL NOT BE GOING LIVE UNTIL A HOT-FIX SCHEDULED AFTER THE PATCH RELEASES] ***



Faction Play Update:


Games will now be driving Conflicts which take place in Faction Play.
There will be story lines which play out over the course of a Conflict in a series of Phases. Similar to a Faction Play Event, Conflicts make up of mini-events which are called Phases and in each Conflict, there are multiple Phases.
Once a Conflict completes, the story arc ends and resolves the Conflict for a planet switch or story foretelling.

Conflict System summary:
  • Conflicts are completed via Phases.
  • Players can go to the 'Conflict Selection" screen to select a Freelancer/Mercenary/Loyalist role and join one of the two Factions in that Conflict or can click on a Call-To-Arms to join one.
  • A Conflict can be any one of 4 pre-determined map states (3050, 3052, 3057 or 3062)
  • Each Phase will contain an unfolding story, while also stating the duration, game mode and success condition.
  • The outcome of a story in the first Phase will affect the subsequent one.
  • Overall story of a current Conflict can be found under the 'Conflict' and 'Mission' tabs in the 'Conflicts Panel' on the Inner Sphere Map.
  • A 'War History' screen can be viewed at the end of a Conflict to review it's results.
There will be a set amount of time where players enter the queue and the Match Maker holds the match creation until the timer expires. This creates one big queue of grouped and solo players combined. Once the hold timer expires, the Match Maker starts to create matches by pulling the biggest groups against each other from largest to smallest until it has exhausted all of the groups in queue. Odd sized teams are then filled with solo players based on a zero sum ELO from highest to lowest. Once this is complete, all of the matches are released to the dedicated game servers and the hold timer is started once again.

Match Maker summary:
  • The queues and matchmaker have been replaced with a new single queue and matchmaker for both group and solo players.
  • Matches kick-off every two minutes.
End-of-match rewards:
  • Freelancers receive a 5% XP boost for every match they play.
  • Mercenaries receive a 5% C-Bill boost for every match they play.
  • Loyalists continue earning Loyalty Points (LP) for loyalist titles and rewards. (Note: Additional functionality will be added towards Loyalty Points in a future patch)
Edit: I may stand corrected, as I'm not sure. It could be related to the current "phase" of the "event" happening in FP at this time. It might be limited to scouting mode only for the moment until the next phase begins. I'm not entirely certain if the hot fix patch came out yet.... New system and all.

Bought a Sleipnir. :D

It's funny, but looks like a lot of other people did, too. There was a match last night with freaking five Sleipnirs on my team, haha.

Could we please get an event this weekend where you could win a Mechbay?

I'm out, but I'd rather not buy more than one for full price, while there are several interesting heroes on sale. :/

Splashed out on a Deathstrike. I'm useless in slow assaults and didn't want a missile build, the Deathstrike has some good build options in a fast assault.

Any mech that walks the 'pay' line as closely as the sleipnir does is going to get a lot of attention, this should saturate the que enough that PGI nerfs them in a month or two.

Do you want to buy a mech pack?
NO THANK YOU, PGI! BEEPING UP EVERY SINGLE PATCH, I WILL NOT BUY STUFF YOU OFFER... Posted Image
Get your shits together and fix things...!

Salesman: "Hey, you want that car? It is great, the engine needs a fix but we will provide a hotfix later"
Client: "COOL! Sure I will take it..."

NOPE, not cool breaking the game every single patch...

Your mileage may vary. Use the LRMs while you're closing distance and to harass people (less effective now since the AMS buff but the missile warnings are a psychological weapon), use the ER mediums beyond UAC range and then once you're close then let loose with the thumpers. Wrecks everything in mid-late game provided you haven't been eaten alive by then

Thought about that one too but I really, really, REALLY hate the limited view in that mech! :(

But it is a beast with 2x AC/20 and some SRM6 sweetness! :)
