Starts on time for me to be able to join in on Friday night in Oceania, so that's good.

The 100 kill/kmdd and the 50 kill assists requirements seem lopsided, especially considering the timeframe. Should those be the other way around?

Edit: Speluk.


I have at least one King Crab to put that 'Wide Load' sign on.

Sin #1: Remain motionless for the first 5 minutes of game b/c you Alt-Tabbed out and didn't realized you'd dropped


Sin #2: Shoot Teammate in first 10 seconds while "Test Firing"


Sin #3: Drop in an Ammo-dependent mech and forget to equip the correct ammo.


Sin #4: VOIP open mic while playing music that distorts so badly it sounds like rabid wombats reproducing.


Sin #5: Die because you didn't notice the enemy killing you as you were typing out a complex political thesis in All Chat.


Sin #6:Be the last on your team vs a legged light thats point blank range, but all you brought was LRMS.


Sin #7: Blow yourself up with heat override when the last enemy mech is weaponless and has no chance of winning.

I have the 50 assists already complete.
For the 100 kill/kmdd you need to do 8.3 per day, it's not that easy but it also not super hard

I feel there was scope for much more "sinful" challenges.

Reach 5000 LRM damage in an assault
Reach 2000 damage with SRM2+ARTEMIS only
Score 200 team damage in 1 arty or air strike
Drop in a group for over 100 matches and maintain a >7:1 win rate
Drop in an Atlas with stealth armour and at least 1 LRM launcher
Get 1 solo kill in an Urbie with an STD60 engine

Well "destroy 1000 Missiles with AMS" only took me one QP match, so usually I would complain you should raise it to at least destroy 5000 missiles...

But this time it was for the sin of Sloth, so it fits right in : You don't even need to touch your mouse to complete that one in a single match :)

Kinda my point though. Assists rack up relatively quickly, kill/kmdd not so much, so it's a weird disparity imo.

Why does only the killed enemy hear your warhorn?That is not ok, in my opinion everybody should be able to hear your warhorn otherwise it is pretty much useless, please fix it PGI

Everybody close to the proximity of the Warhorn can hear it.

I got ~40 last night in under 2 hours while leveling up my IV-4 and painting 40k models between games. It's not quick and easy, but it's totally doable. And it should be challenging when the reward is for 5 million c-bills and 500 MC.

All challenges are doable, even for an okayish player like me. Though that I might struggle with the Solo kills again, but somehow I already got them.

Well you have to be veeery close to hear it.I have notcied that I do not hear that often other players warhorns.And was wondering why nobody uses them.But it turns out they must have reduced the radius of the warhorns.People buy them so that everyone knows about your kills but this way you have to be so close , that you dont need it anymore since you can see the kill by yourself.

That being said, the name "war horn" isn`t appropriate anymore please change it to "dog whistle" then.

Nah, you don't have to be veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery near to the source of the warhorn. It's perfect the way it is.
