Was the same during Peak yesterday...

It's a case of - GO BUY MW5.

I mean, odds of scouting, TWICE during NA PEAK in a Row????????

Least if it's scouting teams are not dodging each other because there is no one playing

My old boss did such a fine business maneuver some years back
trying to push clients from one place to another.

Actually backfired and lost his main clients.

Cant wait to see how this PGI little mind game will turn out.
Just cant wait )

Russ already did that.

It was called Long Tom... It's nuked the population well and good. 1,000s of players quit because of nothing other than stubbornness.

I was here when the long tom came.
Loved it.

Made scouting useful ,, even though hated it still.
Made the game fun for me, however can see how many would rather not drop against it.

PGI dont to solve problems man, they delete them or ... nerf them ..
That is why mwo is such a mess.

How can you love something that caused a 100+ units to disintegrate and many 1,000s of players to quit the game?

Russ loved it - and it killed the game.

I cannot get my head around someone actively sabotaging and damaging their own community for 6 whole months.

Agreed, refusal to fix/remove long tom was probably one of the biggest single causes of player loss in the history of MWO; far worse than stuff like the engine desync and those clan "balance passes".

Ruining FP removed the fun in the endgame and thus the point of playing for serious/dedicated players who wanted more than qp, and those were the players that bought all the new mechs for their drop decks. Deck construction is why so many people bought/buy chassis.

Most of the people i did enjoy dropping with left due other reasons.
I did love it cause it made the game difficult and made everybody paranoid out of their mind
where the purple smoke is .
It was just exiting to me.

The sky cancer timer wrecked any sense of tactics beyond a forced "scatter" every 2 minutes for the unfortunate side.

The evolved tactic involved things like gate jumping and pairs of small mechs drawing the smoke onto the opfor instead... long tom mvp... (off table death arty was no way to die after queuing)

Neither was good for the mode.

Was is good or bad ,, maybe it is irrelevant now.
Still would rather drop 4 hours against long tom and attacking vs a 12 man
then do one scout game.

Can we have scout back in a sidedrop/ Game, like the old time, what was wrong with it ?

I find scouting fun, getting a match can be challenging though in it. Would love to see it moved to a side drop though, maybe with its own story arc related to the main story ark of the FP phase (Not that I think most people, even myself, give much of a **** about the storyline they build with that).

Would be cool to actually see FP Invasion drops with one side having actually earned the scouting rewards, making a faction perhaps focus a little on scouting to actually stop their opponent from having an advantage.

You earn about 1/3 to 1/4 the cbills/xp/lp of invasion game modes per minute spent in game.

Add waiting time and it becomes 1/5 to 1/10
