welp the good prizes are unobtainium for normal players so im gonna sit this one out.

winning against tryhards is less difficult than finding 7 other players who will actually show up for battle.

We have removed the OP try hards from the COMP Q season, so should be more fun and easyer when playing your same ELO :)

i remember last time there was a comp event. i spent several days setting up a team and then we didn't even get one drop. so not really worth my time, even for 300mc. an fp event now, that would be great.

For future reference, I think this event has at least :
- Two to three times too many "Earn 150 Components Destroyed". Make it 50-75 components.
- Ten to twenty times too few "Destroy 250 Missiles with AMS". Make it 2500-5000 missiles.

Killed 1184 missiles in one single ~8min QP match, despite running out of AMS ammunition halfway through.

After completing most of the event : 30/150 components destroyed, that's only 20% of them.

You need to be in a Unit to play Comp Mode, right? It's a pity. Those 30 GSP would've been so useful for the rest of us. Any chance for adding some GSP as rewards for those general challenges, like "Damage Done Lv 3" and "Teamwork Lv 3"? BTW, Teamwork challenges are all labelled as Lv 1.

You don't need to be in a unit to do compQ, and the lowest prize (top 500 teams, there are not going to be 500 teams) is 5 mechbays, 7k mc, 3m Cbills, 273 GSP (enough for 3 mechs), and 3 colors.

Its a pretty sweet deal.

What about those with only 4/10 days available ? They have enough time to complete the event ~4 times over, but might not manage to complete the component part once.

Anyway it was for future reference : 1 component destroyed = ~100 missiles destroyed.

i realized this about solaris as well. just put in your 25 games and get a massive wad of gxp at the end of the season. you dont even need to be good. getting 25 games in a dead mode now, thats hard.

in comp you still need to set up a team roster, which is ulcer inducing in of itself. then you need to get that team you just set up to actually show up. you only get 2 alternates, so if more than 3 people flake you are sol.

A little bug i noticed - if player was a faction loyalist, and had IS+Faction chats, when creating (and perhaps joining, can't test) a comp team, all faction chats are replaced by team+comp chats. This persists after client restart.
I noticed this only now, despite creating a team (Potato Stew Posted Image ) yesterday. So this also includes server day change, and perhaps would persist indefinitely. Upon disbanding the team, faction chats returned.

I don't even know how to find a team?! 16 active players at the same time seems... rare. So if you need another guy, just send me a friends request or invite me (or is there a chance to see open team rooster and join them? I'm totally lost there)

I have Problems to find 7 Teammembers, too. Even after i logged in at Discord.

If you have the same Problem, you may want to login at Teamspeak: 217.172.177.200

I will wait there and when we are eight People, we can team up :)

During the Peak times in EU and NA - There have been 8-10 games per cycle.

So there are definately teams out there, you just need to play at the right times.

So you are saying just play a bit with a couple of random people vs. a bunch of other random people and we will all get those awards once the thing is over ?! Posted Image

That's a pretty sweet deal! Posted Image

How should this Tournament n00b do that exactly ? Posted Image

No chance. Our unit is reduced to 4 member due to the may patch.

We are grouping up together with another unit..but that takes time.

I cannot get bothered going for the remaining 40 components somehow (somehow: not for 25k CB per component). Have not played comp yet either, but we registered a team. Hopefully we will gain some traction til thursday, but we have some unit members working abroad or ugly shifts right now.

all other ones are done, thanks for the event!
