Does anyone actually play this mode aside from when these events start? I'm always finding the same 3 people running the same meta crap.

Soo... uhm... How are we supposed to ask other people to join the 2 vs. 2 Solaris Queue when the "All Chat" isn't working at all at the moment because of the FW issues ?! Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Anyway... Thanks for another Event with MC Awards Posted Image

Last time I tried Solaris no one was on, I am definitely going to give it a try again. Also...what are good meta mechs?

I said to someone just the other day: re Solaris - I'm food to you people. But I still play it.

I will give it a try, but if I end up playing the same person three times and then not finding another match for over 20 minutes, I will go back to playing something else (started a new Ironman playthrough in BATTELTECH again).

1) Allow players to enable/disable each division, so they can queue up for every division they want at the same time. The single queue would make it 7 times faster to find a match, would provide the MatchMaker 7 times more players to match against each other, and combined that would make Solaris 49 times more enjoyable then it is now, where you have to wait a long time to fight an incredibly one-sided match against the only other available guy.

2) Allow players to enable/disable 2vs2 matches, and if 2vs2 is enabled, then when the MatchMaker finds 4 players it automatically launches a 2vs2 (no manual group creation, no premades...), which would potentially be the most fun and balanced form of Solaris match as long as the MatchMaker is allowed to create each group of 2 players itself.

3) I understand you don't have the ressources to program that now : Instead, just enable ONE DIVISION PER DAY. So Monday is only for Division 1, and Sunday is only for Division 7. This would achieve the same kind of effect as replacing 7 players queues with one single queue, but would require a really minimal development resource.

4) Solaris Supply Cache content is mostly uninspiring (to put it politely) : The Solaris Supply Cache bolt-ons should always belong to the Mech selected for that Solaris Division. Not only this could greatly boost player motivation to go play Solaris for the sake of earning bolt-ons for a specific mech that you do own and that you are interested in... but it might also boost the popularity of bolt-ons throughout MWO. And with over 100 bolt-ons per mech available, might even encourage players to purchase additional bolt-ons with MC to complete a set once they've won the first part(s).

5) Do change the color of the Solaris Season 5 Warhorn to anything but the same purple color from Season 4 : Red, Green, Blue... literally any color will do.


Again my main idea : Limit Solaris to ONE DIVISION PER DAY, meaning Monday is only for Division 1 and Sunday is only for Division 7. This incredibly simple to implement change would significantly improve both the speed and quality of the Solaris MatchMaking.

Typically it takes queueing for a few minutes.

Also...what are good meta mechs?
Check the leaderboards, you can click on the top players and see what they're using. Usually there will be a few build variations, so screenshot the builds and then see what works for you.

Yes, people play it. And no, not everyone is running meta.

Use out-of-game comm hubs - there are several Discord and Teamspeak servers up.

Best I've found is ask in Twitch streams if anybody up for grouping for 2v2

MJ12 and ICOB are both interested in 2v2, worth getting in touch with them: https://mwomercs.com...-community-day/

Saw a lot of MJ12 players, did only the 1 vs 1 thing to grab all prices there.
Solaris done for this season.
I don't think i will bother to get the 25 matches in each div. for the season end event.

Be nice if there was an ALL MECH division... Any mech, vs any mech. Instead of selection.

... yes, let's put Cougars against Annihilators, I'm sure it will be a fair match.

Considering a Flea can come up to any Assault and hump its legs with the Assault pilot being unable to hit it because he's unable to look or shoot that low, I'd say it would be a fair match.

Yeah, Solaris where champs drop vs. noops. Great game mode! No match making at all. For the sake of the event I hope to drop against a non-skilled mech which is not meta. Don't have the resources to build mechs just for Solaris.

Best would be unskilled stock mechs for this mode.lt is just a farming platform for the pros. Good luck with that.
