So.. there's no actual event or challenges, only a sale?

There’s an event and it clearly says so in the first post/announcement.
also this question has been answered at least twice in this thread.

I think the reason some people are questioning the "event" part is because there's a split in the playerbase on the need for XP.

For those in higher tiers, if you've been around a while- it can tend to be a major hassle to level up a mech by playing it. You'll have even worse matches than usual, you'll drag your team down, and you get all kinds of nice little comments. I for one tend to mostly level mechs with GSP and GXP now for these reasons.

For a newer player, XP is great, especially if they aren't into spending money yet and/or aren't sure how they want to build out their trees. So for some players, it's just a sale, for others it's an event and sale.

I think they just didn’t read the announcement properly.
People are asking what/where the event part is, not questioning if it is a good event or not.

I need I sleipnir build any suggestions?


the "meta" 4xLBX10 gives up too much firepower/speed/armor for a little gain in DPS and range. I don't think it's worth it.

2xLBX20+3MLas or 4xUAC5+3MLas are better builds, IMO

For anyone on the fence whether to spend the MC on the Sleipnir, you can do everything on a Mauler MX90 without the CBill bonus, so give that a whirl as a demo of the Sleipnir. The MX90 has slightly worse hitboxes, but not by much.

Heh... It's been a while since I had time to post. So much happens over the holidays to keep me from discussing things, and this last year was unusually worse for me. :(

I thought that I should post a THANK YOU for having this Sale set and the Double XP (with Quad Conversion) Event happening after all this time. It really is appreciated when one's available Mech Bays get low, and one wants to get on with skilling their Mechs into something useful in short order. :)

That said, it also happens that I am wishing this Sale & Event were running at least until this coming Friday Afternoon PST too. The same thing that keeps me from posting in Forums also happens to have stolen a lot of the time that I might have used toward this 2021 New Year's Blast Off Event & Sale that we have happening right now. I barely got a few Mech Bays but was left wishing for more time to go over possible purchases from other categories, as well as wishing to have time for really making the boost of Double XP work out for the effort which I'm scrambling to put in. :o

Oh well... If our friendly Matt doesn't see this in time and decide an extension is okay to do, then I'll just have to look forward to the next one, right? :unsure:

My reason for logging in is usually the urge to sit in the cockpit of a mech and enter the battlefield ;-)

Hey there, Pz_DC... Please calm down for a few? A bunch of people just got lots of Active Premium Time from the Previous 2020 Holiday Events that's causing the equivalent of an Ongoing Event for them. Like this other person who got a 'Like' from me, KRZZPFFF, said about things...

...and effectively remarks truthfully, we don't have to get all nuts because there isn't a specific indicated Event running. The queues are going to have more people than usual in them merely because the Active Premium Time would otherwise just slip away if it didn't get used. Just jump in and enjoy the atmosphere and Matches that come your way. All it takes is getting the Team into a positively-motivated state, and the (C-Bills)/XP (and other such stuff) will all just flow your way. ^_^
