The tripple XP conversion is only good for people who have MC lying around to spent.

for 6,95$ (1250MC) you can only convert 117 SP
calculating it up to 200 SP they would cost you 11,88$

That means, those who have no MC to spent, are better of buying 200 GSP for 10$.


Also i was wondering, will there be NO "Tournament Supporter Package" to buy this year ?


On top of that, converting XP into GXP also requires you spend 45,000 c-bills per skill point as well. So it's not 117 SP you get, it's actually just enough GXP to convert into 117 SP once you also add c-bills.

Whereas if you spend $10 for 200 GSP you get the full skill point, without having to add any c-bills to it...

Basically, if you're going to spend real money to skill mechs, buying MC and using this triple conversion rate is just a terrible choice over the GSP pack in every way.

You can do most event in any Queue you choose. Double XP applies to Faction play also.
But yeah I get it you want a Faction play exclusive event.

Yes, FP events. The sentiment of "The Year of Faction Play" lured back some of the retired players. This effect is fading, fast.

You can run FP events parallel to the usual events, they don't have to be mutually exclusive.

Throw a small FP event on this or next weekend, for example IS and Clans fighting to control some mineral rich uninhabited worlds.
HPG Manifold and Grim Plexus conquest+assault, Vitric Forge and Grim Portico siege+counterattack. Since low gravity, bump total deck tonnage for 20-ish tons, would be a welcome distraction from the usual decks.

Conditions - number of games played in FP, score accumulated, kills+KMDD. Rewards - some MC, and choosing faction specific warhorns and stuff, or camos / colors.
People who don't like FP can easily skip this, the same way as many have skipped the Comp event.

Then something similar for the next weekend, with desert theme, or winter, or city... Then again and again.
From time to time do something bigger for the whole week. End the year with Tukayyid or something.

FP is the primary mode for some people, and level of attention it gets does not encourage to play the game. Pls fix this.

I don't know, maybe that's the joke, but I notice that the text for the "I failed the math test" part says you need 3000 ballistic damage, but the completion box is "___/2978".

Also, I believe for the last challenge, you meant "somehow", instead of "some how", as written.

Let me know when they throw in the GSP bundles free for each mech. Now THAT would be a sale. Cheap mech with it all skilled up, is a mech ready to hit the battlefield. I claimed the "See you on the Battlefield!" back in the MW:LL Arena League btw. Posted Image Just ask FlyingDebris and Phil.

The math test was part of the joke.
The last challenge typo was unintentional. (FIXED)

Nice events, btw. Good job. Posted Image

Also can someone tell me how to "Earn 1 Dead" ?

Sounds creepy : Please use this kind of event naming again at Halloween :)

Based on the hints : Something much simpler, that can be pulled off on your first game :)

I can't tell if "Equipment - ADVANCED UAV 1" is also a joke or not, but that's just me being anti-social :P

DROPSHIP DEALS
Can't remember which Champion and Hero Mechs you own? Jump over to your Profile and use the improved Mech List Feature!


Dear Devs the profiles "improved Mech List Features" are an interesting addition.

Please consider adding a skill points filter
[X] All [ ] No SP [ ] Some SP [ ] Full SP (91 or more)
All is default of course.

Also add "Chassis Name" option to the "Sort By" section
I understand the "by weight then name" but sorting just by name would be a very nice addition.
