The non-hero part of the rewards are happening anyway - basically a gift of a week premium time just for getting shot Posted Image

Getting shot?!?!? I thought it was for DOING the shooting! :wacko:

Don't you know? Events like this "Heroes to the Rescue" (or "HttR" for short) are MEANT to be rare, as doing too many of them could drive people away from this game! If that happens, how would you then play any of these Events that are kindly provided to us? Let us avoid looking the proverbial 'Gift Horse' in its' mouth, alright? :(

Why is Faction Play Clan vs Clan when most event mechs are IS?

MATT?


I bet when most event mechs are Clan, FP will be switched to IS vs IS as that is smart....

I don't know what Matt Newman will have to say about that... But, I had last heard that you can get in on those battles with your choice of Mechs & Drop Deck selected, and all without regard to your Current Faction which you have personally chosen. Therefore, there should be nothing preventing you from using your choice of Mechs on the battlefields. Obviously, if that's not correct, then please tell me about your experience in more detail. I was unfortunately out-of-the-loop for a year recently. :mellow:

Yes you clearly haven't played FP before... no need to comment about everything

Actually, I used to play in Faction Warfare, up until a point some time back after they began 'Phase 3' (and was several further iterations down the road) where my body decided to cut me down while waiting for a drop. Worse, it then waited and only woke me up long after the drop had happened, which was enough to finally break me of launching for Faction-based stuff. Please don't make me have to pull out my "FP Veteran - Beta 2" Title to show some confirmation of that one. -_-

Since then, I've been simply trying to pick up on what small fragments that I can about the very latest iteration of Faction-based stuff. However, you have unfortunately confirmed my worst fears, which means that I will sadly NEVER get a grip on the Faction Warfare Systems that are in effect at this time. Go have fun out there on the Faction-based battlefields, and I think that I'll just stay clear of that stuff for the future. Whoever it was that wanted to force everyone into Faction Warfare had better hope that their idea also fails to succeed, or that alone could finish killing MWO off in entirety. There are people who don't like having deeper content forcibly shoehorned down their throats, particularly when they simply can't get a grip on it. I would unfortunately fall into that category, and have to leave with those people, even though I don't want to end up that way. :(

Just for the thought of it, we're dearly in need of reverting certain parts of the Conflict & Contracting Systems that are in place to an earlier edition. All these hardcore-style restrictions for Conflict Entry make things unwelcoming, and effectively ruin that alternate area of gameplay to the point that the number of people who want to touch it are diminishing. :unsure:

We all glad you cleared that up. I was sure PGI would have done something different you know, to seperate themselves from 'Your Dad's Mechwarrior' - How revolutionary of them to not screw up a clan invasion by having clans use IS mechs. Brilliant.

Was only correcting Devnull who incorrectly stated you can bring any tech base you wanted in FP.

So go start a wall of text argument on another thread, you aren't reading his replies, maybe he ain't reading yours, and I sure am not - I want to ***** about having to wait for the hero mechs I actually want!

I like it being generalized, as you don't need to have specific mechs/weapons, rewards are nice too
2 Kill / KMDD seems a bit easy, but then again it's only 2 days

Hi Matt

As someone that requested short and engaging mini events, you have my thanks.

For feedback, the event could be achieved in a minimum of four matches (though likely more) and the rewards seem commensurate with the level of engagement.

Would it be possible, within the scope and structure of the event system, to have a commulative reward for completing the dailies over a given time period? For example, if you were to complete two two-day events per week in a four week period/month then an end of month reward could be provided (premium time or colours may be an option).

Thanks again,

Zeph.

Speaking of event ideas...did we had community events where everyone was providing matchpoints, kills, etc. to a global goal?
I am not sure. I think there was something like that in the past. Could be interesting to have something like that again.

Yes. There where one or two such events in the past. But you are right, there haven't been such events in a long time.
But its a little bit difficult to predict what the goal of these events should be. What I mean if the goal is make X amount of damage in 7 days (all players on all servers). Then PGI must look into their statistics, make a estimated guess, but sometimes in the past, these events where to hard to reach.

the 2 day challenge was nice to see, since I already got all of my hero mech rewards as well as the generic ones, but...... maybe 3 kills or kmdd would have been better, I am mediocre at MWO and I needed only 5 matches to complete it, because I got AC20'd quickly in one of them in my Bushwacker...
