WTF, the spider trial mech has 5-6 points of armor off the arms... AND FULL HEAD ARMOR!
"why golly i don't want my light mech running at 151 kph to get headshot, better unprotect my primary damage dealing weapons"... :(

Naw man, it's like, "great Caesar's ghost, I'm not getting headshotted, so where can I get more armor? Need them on the legs for running and jumping ... *looks at the arms, snaps fingers* ... that'll do. Ammo is not in the arms anyway."

Just popping in to give my 2 cents.

I have barely ever used the trial mechs. I am about average player and still managed to get the event requirements fully completed in a few days.

Some mechs took more than a few games, some were done in one game. It all depends on the team you get to play with and how well you play together.

Sometimes lucky and sometimes not.

KMDD over solo kills was a heaven sent for doing the lights, even tho i managed some kills and even a solo kill with some of them.

I enjoyed this event more than some other more grindy ones where I never had the chance for achieving the goal because I couldnt play multiple hours / day.

Just one to say this echos my experience with the event as well.

Plus had more fun then expected, forced me out of my normal mechs and experienced a few new things, even has me looking at purchasing a few mechs I would not have considered before.. I do think doing this for other groups like the Hero mechs would be fun as well.

A suggestion for the next sale/event - the addition of the bolt-ons for rewards was great, how about you put some of them on sale during upcoming events in addition to having them as prizes?

When Solaris came out I posted my reasons for having no interest in the mechanics of it - that hasn't changed. So let some of us old rusty pilots pimp out our fav mechs for some S&G. C'mon PGI, ya know you wanna... Posted Image

This is always how I pictured it would end. One day you try to login and MWO wouldn't be there. No announcements, no goodbyes, no see ya later, no nothing. No wait that was the end of Good Will Hunting.

Do you know what is sad, Matt?

That you are the only PGI employee in the semi-regular contact with MWO players on this forum.

Thanks for your effort.

I have completed the challenges and thought it was very fun ,although I do feel dirty for having to poach an afk/disco in that crappy spider other than that it was a nice change of pace.
