Just got used to it and I like this recent two week event format. There's more time to finish and the rewards are better. It's also appropriate that this time the occasional 500 match score has rewards that are OK (GSP and c-bills) but not that very important to get (like a mech bay, MC or a great war-horn) Two of those can be achieved on other challenges.

Looking forward for more events like this in the future. Posted Image

Time to get that Aussie flag Posted Image and other good trinkets !

We are famous for whinging :D.
Your use of slang is mostly on the money, except no one says "clucky" much. I reckon the "Clucky Challenge" is ditched for the "Chook Raffle Challenge".

May 8 (Pronounced May-ate) has become the official Aussie Day in MWO.

Given the controversy of the date - Invasion Date/NSW Colonial Establishment Date vs Federation Date - May 8 make a lot of sense.

You're getting THAT drunk? That's concerning... What insane stress-inducing thing would cause you to do that upon yourself? :wacko:

Heh... Nice pun. :lol:


Also, as I was trying to ask back on Page #1, why was "13 Days, 10 Hours, 51 Minutes" chosen as the Event's time limit? For a laugh, yeah, just call me an "undead curious dingo" if you want... :unsure:

Yeah the fellas and I were wondering why we were getting another Australian themed event so soon. Makes sense now. Cheers for the event, it's much appreciated.

If nothing else you should fix your swear filter. Some Australianisms seem to be slipping through...

Yeah, I think it hit Matt so thoroughly hard that he forgot the remaining 13 Hours and 9 Minutes that would have given you a 14-Day Event. I've tried to poke my head out of my grave and ask what happened to them (both Matt and the time), but never got a response, which makes me worry if he's half-way to the hospital right now. :o

Lots of c-bills. Great challenge to match up with an engine sale. Thanks. Posted Image

**Edit**

Just binged the whole event on a long Twitch stream yesterday. Great prizes. So many c-bills, and some warhorns, too! Thanks again. :D
