I'm never enthused about these streamer hunt events.

I think I'll stay offline until it's over.

Is there any chance we can get Mechbays added to the sale?

Here's hoping i'll see a streamer this time on oposite team since matchmaker loves to put on same team as my target.

It would be nice if I could return from a business trip and win five battles on the Polar Highlands...
In how wrong time I must leave on a business trip.

Thx, PGI!

Now I know part of the reason why we haven’t seen a stream from B33f since the one last month. Gearing up to being part of another hunted event. Was popping in and out of BF5 and Warhammer Deathwing to see if he was going to do one today.

Bummer, miss him. But, no surprise after what he said near the end of his last MWO (not the MW5 one) stream.

As TheB33f would say:

Posted Image

But to be honest:

Lose a Match in Polar Highlands
Lose a Match in Hibernal Rift

would be the easiest ever challenge to be done, seriously. Posted Image

Oh good, another streamer event.

I'll finish up the "play on polar and get MC" activities, then go right back to not playing.

Thank you very much!
And as I always suggest: Please show the tiers of these accounts in the list (or sort them y tier) so we can see who we're able to meet ingame.

Another nice event, cheers.
BUT ! (lol)

There are SOOO MANY streamers listed that if you haven't been following the game fairly diligently for a very very long time its a mystery if they are in your match! If they were badged on team list load page or something then suddenly we know who the bonus is and ALSO have ONE new streamer to go add on twitch and actually have a reason to watch him/her.
(Sure the horde of thousands are all a joy and all, lol, but TOOO MANY to make any impression at all as a possible streamer to check out. Possibly after getting blown up hunting eager foolish cash! Posted Image )

Hmm... Okay, gonna bullet-point this... *sigh* *facedesk* -_-
  • "Fast 'Mechs" Sale Glad to have it! Much Appreciated! :D
  • "Cool Maps Challenge" Event A bit of RNG involved... Might be possible to do... And yet I am sure someone will rage over requiring beating a Vote in order to get the required maps. I really hope the frequency got turned way up on Hibernal Rift & Polar Highlands maps, or this Map-Specific Challenge Event will not go very well. Perhaps add 24 hours extra here to round it out at 7 Days in order to avoid unnecessary rage, seeing as it started weirdly by comparison to what the website could be read as? :wacko:
  • "Hot Targets" Developer & Streamer Hunt Those of you at PGI who arranged this, please tell us that you are kidding about there being only 4 Days to try at that, right? Between all the elements of that PSR System handling, the wonky MatchMaker module, and all of the Streamers & Developers (including yourselves) being humans who happen to have Real Life (and not being able to be on all of their accounts at the same time, or even constantly for that matter, which tears the realistic simultaneous target count extremely below the claimed 100+ total) to deal with... Well, there is literally NO realistic way that this small amount of 4 Days time is meaningful enough to allow a reasonable quantity of chances/matches attempted in terms of hunting down those who have willfully chosen to become targets for others. Like it happens that I have said before, the only good solution here is to run this for 7 Days long in order to allow for the natural cycles both on & off of those who wish to be targets. Only after a period of 7 Days has passed can I really ever honestly agree that any of these Hunts has even had the inkling of a proper chance to run long enough, and therefore finally play out to a reasonable conclusion with enough possible attempts provided. Oh well... I'm not gonna hold my breath on this part of things! <_<
  • Additional thoughts Not much to be said here, except that I second the rather thoughtful posts of those who wish for having Mech Bay & Engine Sales at the same time as the Mech Sale itself. Doing so would help promote Mech purchases & building after the recent Patch to the game, which would get more people to test out how things have changed. In turn, that would potentially provide additional useful data which shows the effects caused by all of the changes. Being able to gather information like this can only be a win for PGI Staff & The Cauldron alike, right? B)

I just played as usual and got someone last time. I didn't even know it was a streamer until some mc fell into my lap. Just relax and play if and when you feel for it. It's not a fortune at stake, just a little extra fun.

Is a Teamkill counted for this Streamers event?

Earn 300 MC for every kill you make against any of the participating MWO Streamers listed below!

Earn a Dev Kill Medallion for every kill you make against any of the participating developers.

If I Teamkill a Streamer, a developer and a Devnull so we loose the match on Polar,
how many prizes do I receive?
