Standard Versions of variants that originally were released as Customer Rewards Program Mechs.

Being new, this still feels a bit vague. Would you confirm that this list is correct? (From https://mwomercs.com/store/gifts)

1 of the following variants: *[ These are shown to be incorrect below. ]*
Dervish --- DV-6Mr, DV-7P
Marauder II --- MAD-4L, MAD-6S
Corsair --- COR-5T, COR-7R
Champion --- CHP-1N2, CHP-1Nb
Vulcan --- VT-5S, VT-6M
Flea --- FLE-20, FLE-FA (Fire Ant)
Fafnir --- FNR-5E, FNR-6R
Hellspawn --- HSN-7P, HSN-8P
Thanatos --- TNS-5S, TNS-5T
Osiris --- OSR-2V, OSR-1P
Nightstar --- NSR-9P, NSR-10P
Arctic Wolf --- ACW-1, ACW-2 [[ didn't have its own link, part of Osiris/Nightstar's page. ]]
Nova Cat --- NCT-C, NCT-D [[ didn't have its own link, part of Osiris/Nightstar's page. ]]
Uziel --- UZL-5P, UZL-6P
Annihilator --- ANH-1X, ANH-1P
Cougar --- COU-E, COU-H [[ didn't have its own link, part of Uziel/Annihilator's page. ]]
Mad Cat Mk II --- MCII-A, MCII-B [[ didn't have its own link, part of Uziel/Annihilator's page. ]]
Javelin --- JVN-11A, JVN-11B
Roughneck --- RGH-2A, RGH-3A
Assassin --- ASN-26, ASN-27
Bushwacker --- BSW-P1, BSW-P2
Cyclops --- CP-11-A-DC, CP-11-P
Phoenix Hawk --- PXH-2, PXH-3S
...or 200 GSP.

@OneTeamPlayer: It doesn't seem weird to me that event people would be more responsive, lol. Also, different jobs generally require different skills? In any case, "A gentle answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
...
A soothing tongue is a tree of life,
But perversion in it crushes the spirit."
That said, I thought this was funny and relevant:
"Where no oxen are, the manger is clean,
But much revenue comes by the strength of the ox."

Edit: struck out incorrect mech list.

Do you plan to grant extra Loot Bags for buying MC or Mech Packs? Why not put 30% discount on the Mech Packs of the mechs chassis which are in Sale.(e,g Marauder, Marauder II, Corsair, Flea)..

GOOD EYE!
Thanks Guys
Fixed now!

I think I can safely speak for all three of us who noticed when I say You're Welcome, and Thank You for fixing it. I'll keep watching for any additional Bug(s...?) that crops up. :D


On other notes, you might end up having to somewhat extend the running time of the Event on the far end. One of your coworkers decided to make it harder (or at least that's my interpretation... have a look @ https://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/277493-psr-tier-metrics-round-1/ in order to make your own determination and decipher the mess) for those on the far ends of the PSR spectrum to actually get a Match to play. I don't like the massive negative impacts this can possibly put against newer/newbie players and anyone who fell into the 'Tier 5' area. :(


EDIT (~20 minutes later) :: I just saw the choices for what Cockpit Items can be earned, and I really like the current possibilities for what can be gained. If there was time to suggest more to have in that pool before things begin, I can name a minor few that might be worth putting in. Also, if there was an Emoji that could be used on these Forums which had Two Thumbs Up on it, then I would be using it at the end of this paragraph. Well, at least there's this one that goes perfectly with the Event about to launch! ... B)

Honestly, having to score 250 bags for barely being able to choose a reinforcement mech seems too much grinding. It should be any mech you like for that amount of score requirements.

oh maaannn, I read it wrong, I thought 1 loot bag per 80 match score meant, if I had 320 match score, I'd get 4 loot bags, nope, it's really just a any 80+ match score Posted Image

that means I have to actually do 150 matches . .

If nothing else (and I mean this in the best possible way), perhaps you can just spread your Match runs out over time? At least by doing it that way, you can try to potentially avoid burnout that's being caused by other stuff. Right now, with what's going on with the MatchMaker & PSR, this rather nice July 2020 Beach Party Event is being effectively undermined, which happens to be a nasty all-out source for stress. The way that I see it, there's no reason to push so hard that additional stress becomes induced on top of that. :mellow:

Umm... not sure if someone's brought this up, but there's a typo in the Event Phase 2 objective.

It says you need 20000 matches to reach completion... I'm not even sure that's physically possible.

Has your computer been in Sleep Mode for a while? Or, did you just leave the web page for this Event in an unrefreshed state for an extended period? Things have changed since you last looked, and there are no current Bugs that I can visibly see. :huh:

At current, all items are correct in stating that you'll be racking up 20000 Match Score in Total (even without the "S" in "Score" capitalized), earning 1 Loot Bag for every 200 Match Score that gets racked up during a Match. It does NOT in any way happen to say that you'll be playing 20000 Matches to finish it, and it would NEVER take that long. You have 2 Weeks to complete it, once it finally starts, and they're only asking for ~100 Matches Played at an average of ~200 Match Score each. Hopefully for many of us, that will not be too much of an issue to pull off. :)

I just checked again, both the website and in game, and it says this:


Quote

Earn 1 Loot Bag Per 200 Match score accumulated | 0 / 20000


The 0 / 20000 is under 'Completion'. Am I the only one seeing that?

that is your matchscore accumulation meter, with 20k matchscore being the goal where you have gained all lootbags you can get out of Phase 2.
It's counted differently compared to Phase 1, where every single match where you earn a match score of 80 or greater will award you one lootbag, up to a mximum of 150.
Do not confuse these https://mwomercs.com/events with this https://mwomercs.com/beachparty2020

Oh... I assumed it was the same as phase 1 (ie every match above the indicated score "counts" as 1).
Alright, that makes a lot more sense.

Yeah, Phase 1 is the "old" way, a single bag per match that meets the criteria. Phase 2 is the "new" style where you just accumulate points and every 200 you gain a bag.
