Oh look ... an event ... Posted Image

Just out of curiosity, how much copies of MW5 were sold to this date?

Engines at 50% discount rightly deserve attention, but don't forget Cool Shots at 50% discount, too. I picked up a few hundred or so, the last time they were on sale, and that added a whole new dimension to my game ... and as I always say, I need all the help I can get. Posted Image

Isn't Winter War a Mod for MW5? You should probably move this to the hidden MW5 Sub forum. Posted Image

You'd think, with a snow theme, they'd put the Ghost Bear pattern on sale, too.


Please, please, please!

Has anyone gotten Frozen City Classic, yet! Played four hrs. yesterday from 6 P. M, to 10 P. M. and never saw it.
Had Forest Colony Snow once Polar eight times.

Hi, personally not a fan of these "play a map" things. Having to play polar highlands 3 times in a row makes me just not want to play at all. Thanks

Yeah, I played on Frozen City Classic 20 minutes ago.

It was the last thing that I needed: Challenge complete.

I've been playing since March and that means I still have my fair share of spectating. Frankly, it's amazing how many players do not use the first -free- consumable slot at all. 1 Cool Shot can actually make a difference sometimes.

It's hardly a crutch, it's a tool.

Typical, redeem event stuff, don't show up in inventory (cockpit items)...

I've barely seen Frozen City Classic and have most certainly not seen the Forest Colony one at all. Troubling.

There's a one match delay if you redeem from the web page.

No delay if you redeem it in-game instead (from the small icon at the bottom-middle of the main MWO screen).

Unless stated otherwise in the event.

It's like 10x rarer then Frozen City Classic, but some players said they completed the event so it must be there.

Do not give up, boys. Just be patient.

Frankly, I vote for those maps because of the event to try and help others. Yet, more often than not, it doesn't get picked because of other voters :(

Confirmed, but then people vote for non-event maps. I'm at x9 now waiting for Frozen City Classic. The night version is constantly voted for, because it has no snow storm.

Proof that MWO players are ultimate egoists Posted Image


They know they either themselves or other players are going to need those rarely seen maps ... and yet they are voting for Grim Plexus because it is easier to Lurm there ... Posted Image

Check the picture: The most needed maps get the smallest number of votes.

Frozen City Classic is as common as Polar Highland but gets voted five times less often.

Forest Colony Snow shows up ~10 times less often then either of them and would have been better replaced by a QP/FP shared map like Alpine Peaks or Frozen City (the non-classic version) : Get Forest Colony Snow first.
