Is it just me or do the challenges seem quite a bit harder compared to past events?

They're not impossible, but they appear to be 'grindier'.

Good hunting,

You don't have to complete it, the reward mechs are not special

I'm not worried about those, the 500 match score for a loot bag is a lot higher than in past events though.

Well, look at it this way... it might prompt people to play better or make it a bigger LRM-fest than it has ever been.

It is accumulated.

You don't have to have 500 match score performances.

Having cumulative based objectives means that people do not YOLO/Kamikaze in games. Trying your best rather than suicide running & quitting means you will get the event done faster... The suicide runners are always a big issue during lootbag events when it's 100 match score per loot bag (non-cumulative).

Cumulative is always better, especially when it means you actually have to attempt to play out a match.

Yup, I knew that it was cumulative, I was just noticing that it was higher than the usual 100 or 150 per loot bag and you are correct, it will very likely reduce the 'yolo/kamikaze effect' in matches.

I already have most, if not all of the cockpit items so the challenge for me will be to improve my match scores (never a bad thing Posted Image ).

Maybe instead of needing to complete this challenge in 14 days, it'd be better if the event ran for the whole of March? Just give more time so that people won't feel burned out by the game inside 2 weeks. Just my opinion.

Cumulative is fine but I would have liked to see a 500 MS reward for something unique, like one of the many war horns. 500 MS is achievable by just about everyone with a little thought to their builds. It'd also be nice to bring back ranked challenges... One can dream I suppose.

Lurms, AMS...

I was actually thinking about dropping a few matches over the event, but this discussion already makes me salty enough to -not-
has it ever come to your mindS to just shoot stuff, kill stuff and get a high matchscore the right way?

Well, the event could be stretched out to last the whole of March instead of just two weeks.

if you average 500 per match, you need 150 matches. That is a bit over the top for this. I'd agree 100 was too low, but maybe something in the middle like 250 or 300 would be better.

Is my math wrong, or is that a ridiculous amount of games they expect people to play in 2 weeks? I doubt even the top players would average 500 over 150 matches.

If I want to play a warfare game "The Right Way", Mount and Blade Napoleonic Wars is on sale. Oh, sorry, never mind, Napoleon said that artillery is the queen of battle, so I guess it has to be the version with the Vikings. Swords and spears and none of those stirrups on the saddles, that is just lazy.

You'll need around 300-350 games if you consistently score 200-280 MS. That is a lot. I don't play nearly half as many games as that PER MONTH Posted Image But yeah, Matt has increased the number of days now to include 3 weekends. So, 20k MS per weekend and a thousand or so per weekday is a very achievable split without tiring ourselves out. I might even be able to complete Halo : CE Posted Image
