Many thanks for the grab bag event too!

Glad to see the next major Loot Bag Event and its' Challenges inbound... Being able to earn an Atlas sounds very fun. I will be looking rather much forward to this, even though I'll be minorly delayed in getting started by Real Life things. :D

Anywho... Pardon me, everyone... I've got battlefields to get back to. See you all out there. B)

The free Atlas isn't in any of the loot bag challenges

Wrong. *facedesk* -_-

It unlocks on the 200th Loot Bag acquisition by a player, as unlocking it functions differently when the Loot Bag System happens to be involved. Look specifically at the Loot Redemption (a.k.a. "Tournament") Page for the meter, as that particular Challenge and its' Tracker are present there. Posted Image

On the side....... Let's say someone were to ask me what one thing I might have done differently would be? Well, while I don't feel particularly pushed or spurred myself, there's two ways that my mind could go on that one. Either of them would be fine on their own, but doing both would definitely be too much. Also, I'm only posting this part to pre-satisfy a random question in advance, and not as an attempt to change anything... Please avoid misinterpreting it as anything I have not intended. Posted Image

Option One? That would be to start 'Phase 2' on the order of about 4 Days sooner and allow it to therefore run 4 Days longer within the Event's overall time limit. In this particular case, I'm not thinking much about myself, but instead about those who are dead at the bottom of the 'Tier 5' zone, and therefore likely need the added time to have any chance at collecting all 300 Loot Bags in total. After the 29 Days with 'Phase 1' and then 19 (instead of 15) Days with 'Phase 2' have passed, if someone has not finished by then, that would really be "Time's Up!" without an excuse for things. Posted Image

Option Two? Make it so that the Pick-A-Prize Camo only needs somewhere around 275 (up to 290, perhaps) Loot Bags acquired to be considered "Earned & Unlocked" by the player, out of the 300 Maximum possible. Again, a thought aimed at lower-skilled players in order to try to build up their confidence and make them think MWO is a great thing to stick with. But that depends entirely on if the psychology behind the whole "getting more after the last major unlock" will even work on that person's mind. Who knows... Posted Image

And in the case of anyone wondering, the only reason I'm currently 'Tier 4' while typing this is because of recent Light Mech piloting and how it can have situations where it will not get properly rewarded. I guess that I'm going to have to fix that with other Mechs and get back into 'Tier 3' once again, seeing as direct combat is wrongfully the only metric that counts in these current MWO days.

Have you ever even read one of your own posts? I mean, being picky about the design of events is literally the only thing you do.

In any case, I'm just saying, if you're going to pick colors roughly matching the U.S. flag, a dark blue is probably a better choice than a fairly light blue.

I was thinking the same thing, but knowing myself, I'm sure I will anyway. Can't go wrong with another AS7-D!

Thank you! The loot bag events are always fun!
Your timing was perfect. I was helping a couple friends do last minute grinds for the Canadian/4th and Cool Map events last night when this very pleasant surprise popped up and went live.
(Yes my two friends both managed to get all the colors out of the 4th event like they wanted.) This was just icing on the cake for us and we all had a really good time. Thank you!

Thanks for the event, but, PLEASE, next time can we choose at last one of two mechs?.. Like "AS-7D or DWF-A"? Some of us already have "dusty AS-7D" while try to grab 200 lootbags for some c-bills, mech bay, few colors and some more trash items is not a rly fine IMHO.
