How about a Random queue button that lets matchmaker assign you to whichever mode it likes?
(as needed, to speed up the other players' waiting at slower queues).

Other games give a small token amount of virtual CBills for joining such a Random queue (read: ST:O).

So you can choose:
a) 12x12 QP
b ) 8x8 QP
c) 4x4 Scouting QP
d) limited-time events like Solaris Gladiator Mode
e) Random queue button that lets matchmaker assign you to whichever mode it likes (a/b/c/d)**?

Note: ** -- Please no random queue for Faction Play!

hmm me think, 12 vs 12 will still be played, i also think there will be an 8 vs 8, and if we are lucky some scouting missions 4 on 4, and of course faction play, we will see what form happens.

id rather have 4v4 sans scouting/tonnage limits.

Not touching Event Queue again until May? Disheartening. Hopefully that won’t be May 21st weekend as that is when I’m helping with the next show at the theater that did the Godzilla double feature. This time, Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest.

According to data tables provided by steam and further collaborated with information provided by Darren, the 8v8 weekend didn't even put a dent in the player population. Apparently, for every player who skipped that week, an old timer jumped back in for some nostalgia. Plus, we got an extra week on the events, which more than made up for the 2 day hiatus. Mathematically, that boosted the amount of time we have to complete the event by 20%.

So I don't think your dire proclamation has any factual basis to back it up; and I say this as one of the players who refused to play that weekend, not in protest, but in disinterest.



That's because all the alt accounts came out to play - no new players and hiding the impact that the "event" had by covering up the true number of people who dropped out. Look at the flood of new names, low post numbers and very inactive accounts that suddenly became "live"; there's the basis for your facts.

Everything is super! Just please don't enter daily tasks. I want to play MWO at my own pace, and not go to it as a job.

P.S. If I can add one wish list item, support for UHD resolutions would be amazing.

I know one casual player with a 28 inch Ultra HD monitor who would like that too!

He returned to MWO some weeks ago and was like : Why is everything so small ?! Why is there no option to change the scaling ?! Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image



My own wish is for MWO to finally have some of those old ATL+TAB bugs and weird Windows Notification Error fixed and Nvidia's SMP added :

- https://www.technipa...ulti-projection

But I fear neither of those is ever going to happen... :(

i was wondering about that. you had the ukraine paint on the march mech, the sanctions, the public outrage. if the deal fell through they are being hush hush about it.

Really?

I think that there is no point in opening the Russian Beta now. It is quite possible that the intended players are sitting in the real T-72B3s, T-80BVMs and T-90As now.

Oh, well. Something has been removed from the Road map, something else has been added on the Road map.

Preorders

  • The Crusader Mech Preorder and Delivery
Next Platinum Collections
  • Inner Sphere Platinum Collections 02
    • Wolfhound
    • Crab
    • Black Knight
    • Mauler


Could be interesting. Both depend on pricing.

Next map
  • Vitric Forge for QP



Uhm, how about fixing the issues with the last new map first? Design issues aka sniper fest, which might take a bit more time to fix than some (also still unfixed) walls not touching the ground after the hpg network. Posted Image

Features Update
  • The Event Mode Queue*
  • Quirk Display Update*
  • Skill Tree Reconfigured*

Not sure about separate queue for events.
Better display of quirks (and making it possible to distinguish between those of the base mech and those acquired by skill points) sounds great. Took you only, like, 5 years since the skill tree changes, but very welcome. Posted Image
New skill tree? So less "dead" nodes to get the stuff you actually want? I'll sure read that update! (Read! Not watch an hour of people talking about it!)

Matchmaker needs fixing since the group queue was merged into the solo queue! Nice it finally reached "we'll have a look at it" status with you. Posted Image
Rebranding? So getting rid of the Solaris line? Great.
Reengagement? More players would be welcome, but, fixing the matchmaker to properly balance groups shouldn't be forgotten or else we lose players faster than we gain any.

"Skill Tree Reconfigured*"

Hmm, this could bring me back to play MWO again and not just MW5.
The Crusader looks great too, woudn't mind seeing it in MW5 with DLC3.

If they had loss of all prior skill points as a plan they may as well turn the servers off. Posted Image
