I'll have it done on three accounts in maybe half that time. My not gonna drop a dime account could use the 16 million cbills and 800MC and 4 warhorns.

Great looking event. Great rewards. Going to be fun streaming it.

Question: when it says, for instance, accomplish xyz in a blackJack, is that any blackJack? Is the hbk-iic only doable in the baseline hbk-iic? Or can it be done in a hbk-iic-a?

This event is more likely to make me skip FP to QP, then the other way around.

Only thing I can really criticise is the choice of factions, and that's more personal taste (Steiner and Nova Cat are OK-ish, but Jade Falcon and Marik are entirely meh imo). Hope we'll see similar events with different factions (Davion and Wolf/Shark/Viper ideally) in the near future.

Events like this can be completed in any mech of the correct chassis.

Did a 1104 dmg 6 solo kill 0 assists match with the trial zeus (I needed to do 4 matches to finish the assists as I kept killing everything i engaged in the zeus), had a 963 4 solo kill with trial atlas (and again 4 matches to get the 10 assists), trial kodiak was 3 matches to be done its category, and the same went on with most every other trial mech. From 1 to 4 matches to finish its category. If you know how to aim and play to each mech's strengths on any particular map then basically all the trial mechs are perfectly usable for the event.

I MIGHT run one of my accounts through the faction side, but i'm not sure if I'll do two of them. I guess it depends which account i am running at the time. My primary I've got plenty of mechs to tailor to any map/mode that comes up and hit all the chassis categories of the event. My second account less so, and my third account I have all four bays filled and only two of them are categories in this event.

If kill assists were higher i can see that being useful for FP games , but honestly QP mode is more efficient .

What part of this event makes it easier to do in FP? Is it just their way to try and get people to do factions? Seems like all of the objectives can be done in QP and nothing that requires FP. Am I missing something here?

All he means is you can drop four of the event Mechs in each single FP match. Ie. Make progress towards four event goals all at once.

Yes, you can do it all in QP - as the event description explicitly states. It's up to you.

But I agree with the advice that dropping four of the Mechs into FP will generally be easier than trying to do it all in separate QP matches.

But sadly, once again, the FP Conflict has failed to commence at the time the event started :(

3rd time this has happened in recent months.
