Nice rewards this time, but anyway you can add a bonus for purchasing C-Bill or Premium time bundles as well? I really don't need any GSP.

Can you explain the "Purchase and Redeem a 200 GSP Bundle during the event and earn 25 Bonus Redeems"

You buy 200GSP and get 25 x 200GSP or 25 extra loot bags?

Tradtionally the way they do these events is if you buy whatever mechpack is current, you get extra loot bags. There are no new mechpacks right now, so one would assume you get bonus lootbags for buying GSP.

On the event page, you click on the word "redeem" to redeem each loot bag that you have earned, so if you buy the 200 GSP bundle you get 25 Bonus (loot bag) Redeems.

PGI could avoid people asking this question by replacing the word "Redeems" with the words "Loot Bags" on the events page.

I thought they were (C) versions until you mentioned it. Have (S) versions of these mechs been released before?

If you use the steamcharts as a metric of player involvement in MWO, it took a nosedive on December 10th dropping the 24h peak player #s from 700s to 400s as players stopped playing MWO to play MW5 instead and it held consistently there every day (including on last weekend) since. It will thus be interesting to see if this event causes the numbers to go up as players shift back to doing MWO for the event or if they just stay the same.

(S) versions are usually identical to (C) versions of the same mech, except the 30% bonus becomes one for c-bills instead and they have a default premium camo pattern and colors. The (S) Stormcrow for example is the phranken pattern with phranken colors but the same 5 medium pulse build as the (C) Stormcrow. The four pick a prize option mechs are from the second year steam performance packs and like the pick a prize mechs during the last loot bag event, they have the same hot rod pattern and Camo Black, Crimson Red, and FRR Pure Orange colors.

The (S) variants were part of the "steam performance packs". The have the same loadout as the respective (C) variants, but a 30% CBill-bonus instead of the XP-Bonus and come with either the Phranken or the Hotrod pattern already applied as default.

Nice. A reason to play and try out my new Thrustmaster. Switching from trackball and keyboard. I hope the learning curve does not hurt my match scores too much.

Dear Santa
For this stocking stuffer event I want a kitten, lots of MC, an Anubis Light Mech, Christmas Bolt On Flags, 1-Million Dollars (U.S.) in cash, and a new Hero King Crab. I made sure my stocking was extra big to fit all of this into it.

So it seems to me that every PUG pulled his Clan 'Mech filled with nothing but LRMs from his hangar.

Usual challenge ...

Oh, well.

[color=#959595]I think that it means that "1 Loot Bag every 250 match score you accumulate" adds a bit towards the total sum. So if you play three games with scores 200, 200, 100, you will get two loot bags, if you know what I mean. At least that's how I understand it.[/color]

Yep yep I remember now thanks. And as always thanks PGI I do love me some stocking stuffers!

If you shoot an ECM Mech with a PPC which counters the ECM, you should get credit for the "Counter ECM" event achievement, since the achievement does not specify that the ECM has to be countered in any specific way (PPC / ECM / TAG / Active Probe).

1 Million is middle-class in many parts of the US now, so you should be wishing for more.
