Good prizes, always a favorite event. Look forward to this every year (and I'm not even Irish... I'm a Canuck Uke Posted Image ).

Out of curiousity, is the Loyalty program still a thing. I think its not, but maybe I'm wrong?

Because I really like the (L) patterns ^_^

do you mean just an MC Hero Mech sale or Dropship deals with hero mechs?


I wouldn't mind this sale next month. I'm buying the Veagle Collector's Pack 'cause of the sale Posted Image Would you consider doing a IS and Clan mixed Dropship sale, i.e., just distinguish between weight class and not the tech?

So if I read that right, there's 14 days to get 75000 match score. So, on average, 5357 per day. That's quite a lot of playing. Heaven forbid you miss a day.

50,000 would probably be a better target. 75,000 is a lot for us mere mortals.

While it might be feasible to reduce the overall requirement of the Match Score, the reward could include the actual "L" variants of the mechs currently on offer instead of regular ones. Even getting an avg of 250 MS, which is the overall average as shown in Jarl's List, we'd need to play 300 matches to get it. So, just getting regular mechs as a reward isn't that big of an incentive, I think.

EDIT :- Instead of reducing the requirements and stuff, maybe increasing the number of days from 14 to 28 might be better? That way, we can have the event running for the entire month and we needn't cram in all of the games and get burned out by it within the 14 day period.

There aren't any new mechs being made for now. I believe the devs are busy with a new DLC for MW5.

There is no pressure to score all the lootbags because of that semi grand prize . That makes this a very relaxing event .

I like relaxing events .

Just to test my understanding. If I buy 2 Mech Packs I will only get 25 Loot Bag Reedems? - Right?!

If the grand prize is a mech which I can buy via c-bills, fine. As one of the 250 match score players, I won't be able to play 300 matches in two weeks anyway. Especially not when I have to learn stuff for my education.
But the loot bags are really nice, as usual. Thank you! :)

Only the GSP bundle is unlimited. The Mech Packs will yield you only 25 Loot Bags.

The event could be stretched to last the whole of March instead of just two weeks. It would prevent a lot of frustration 'cause let's face it, when it's an event, the matches get really bad.

Correct - First Mech Pack Purchase only.

you could simply buy one the cheapest individual Hero Mech from https://mwomercs.com/resistance-heroes or https://mwomercs.com/clan-iic-heroes or https://mwomercs.com/clan-heroes-two or https://mwomercs.com/clan-heroes or a 10 / 15 dollar hero upgrade if you already own a standard pack of a particular mech

That would be the cheapest option.

Hey, Matt, are the loot prize mechs the loyalty/specialty variants? Or the regular variants? That'd be so sweet if it was another opportunity to get the special version. Been looking forward to the Lucky Charms event. :)


These are the Standard Variants and include a Mech Bay
you will find them in the reinforcements section of the gift store - https://mwomercs.com/store/gifts

Appreciate the feedback - Event and sale has been given 5 additional days to extend it over 3 weekends.

Yes the Mech Packs Hero packs and upgrades will only trigger the 25 bonus redeems once.

200 GSP packs (not on sale) can trigger it multiple times.

500 match score & 500 Damage per bag? 300 bags needed to score a standard mech? 12 days ti complete the event???

That's a pretty steep climb in requisites for a watered down reward. The last two pick a Prize events featured MC exclusive mechs and weighed in at about half the grind. Why the sudden leap in farming and drop in reward quality?

Phase 1 seems a bit much .... 2-3 qp matches per loot bag?
Phase 2 isnt much better

if the bags themselves are nice enough I'll be happy....but I dont think I am going to grind for a mech I can buy any time
