Here we go! The choice of multiple different camo patterns to unlock, for those who already have one, is a lovely touch (along with the colour choices in that previous event), and I hope it's possible to include more of those. Last year, I won at least 5 colours that I'd already purchased - and I only owned a handful anyway!

    This is cool, but does redeeming them mean that it'd be difficult to request a refund when the quirks come out?

Glad to hear this is coming... Looking forward to the Event Pages for being able to keep track. B)

Only one suggestion that comes to mind... Please make it only 280 Loot Bags for the Pick-A-Prize Camo item, which also happens to be a perfect multiple of the Grasshopper's Tonnage (70) at an x4 amount. Or if you really have to keep it up on the ultra-hard end, then 290 Loot Bags would still work. That would at least give a chance to people who do not get enough time for a perfect 300 Loot Bags to get all that they possibly can. (I'm trying to be of a mind to not make it too hard for the Newer Players who would need stuff like this a lot more than the Long-Time Veterans probably do at this point.) Humorously, that will also give bragging rights to those who can get all 300 Loot Bags collected. :)

I would love it if there was a redeem all for the loot bags and you can see a condensed summary of what you get.

I agree with Locked Bolt - a 'redeem all' for loot bags would be great.

Thanks for the event, gonna be a busy weekend I guess. Posted Image

For those of us who have the Stryker pack purchased and will soon have a great influx of GSP, perhaps also a sale on MC? Posted Image

Oh, and don't forget about my idea to have past free mechs give a bonus during events. Posted Image

I think they are already generous with the low dmg and match score per loot bag and giving the fee mech away at only 200 loot bags. so 300 loot bags for the additional camo seems more then fair.

Been waiting for the next event.

As a returning player that never got the chance to buy many of the mechs in the beta, events that both encourage me to play to earn a mech as well as the ability to earn other things normally only purchasable with MC (like bolt ons and camo) its these types of event rewards are ideal for keeping me interested in playing every weekend.

I love the game but just grinding over and over for nothing gets old. BUT grinding towards earning rewards keeps it fun.

This is one of the best thought out events/loot bag events since I've started. The free camo is a great touch as are the hard to get boltons (for MC..) My only last wish is a free color thrown in for these.

Precisely why many in the player base, myself included, have been asking some kind of daily login challenge to keep the core loop more interesting.
Edit: the addition of Bolt-ons to the prizes is very very welcome!

This looks great. Giving the choice of Camo was a good idea, and loot bag events have always been fun.
