EVENT QUEUE SCHEDULE, BOMBADIL'S BIRTHDAY BASH & THE RETURN OF THE MASTER'S CHALLENGE!


Greetings MechWarriors!

Here is the Event Queue schedule for this weekend and beyond. Included are a couple special events, including Bombadil's Birthday Bash on Tuesday, which ends with the return of the Master's Challenge - where you have a chance to compete with some of the best MechWarriors in MWO in a 1v1 coliseum match for prizes and glory!

Any specific 'Mechs included in the Event Queue will be on sale. All Events are subject to change at any time. Have some suggestions? Respond to this post and let us know!

Known Issue: If you are currently aligned to a particular faction in Faction Play, it will filter your 'Mechs in Event Queue accordingly. If the 'Mechs you are wanting to select for the Event Queue are not showing up, try going into Faction Play and switching your allegiance. This is temporary, a fix is coming!

-The MWO Team

                        Looking good! Some of the mech selections should be pretty interesting.

                        I'm a bit sad to see no groups of 2 allowed anywhere. My wife and I would really like to play the event queue together at some point.

                        Looking forward to Urbie Derby! Glad it was added. Suggestions:

                        'Like Kittens and Puppies' - Just the lights and mediums from 'Like Cats and Dogs'
                        'What a Typo!' - Remember that PTS with 2000% missile cooldown? Only medium chassis, and AMS RoF boosts.

                        Edit for some more ideas:
                        'Attack of the Romans!" - Nothing but Centurions
                        'Hunchback Death Squad' - Used to do drops with friends back in Beta, only Hunchbacks
                        ’XX Tons of Fun’ - Those underused mechs on the lower end of the weight scale for Mediums, Heavies, and Assaults. So:
                        - ‘40 Tons of Fun - Except maybe the Assassin
                        - ‘60 Tons of Fun - Mad Dog, Hellfire, Champion, Dragon, QuickDraw, and maybe Rifleman if no recent Dakka queue

                        What do you mean? Quick play has been fine as far as I've seen.

                        Can the EQ move to a 24 hr. rotation cycle instead of the current 4 hr.?

                        Can you get the webpage dev to design an Event Queue page that shows the calendar for a week or month customizable to a person's time zone? Bonus points if it could be added in-game. A wall'o'text is harder to understand. I can see some events being repeated on a predicable schedule, and some things could be planned out a month in advance.

                        As for suggestions,
                        -There should be a regular Group Queue time in the schedule. Probably 8v8. Groups of 1, 2, 4, or 8?

                        -First 8- Commando, Jenner, Hunchback, Centurion, Catapult, Dragon, Awesome, Atlas. Frozen City Night (classic). (Limited to the original variants too)

                        That was quite a wall of text. Took me 3 reads to *maybe* figure out when the 500mc for participating was up for grabs - be great if it was highlighted on a calendar that can be set to my timezone, agree with above.
                        Glad that we're trying some new things. Hope we get to do this in private lobby some day; I had a group in halo 4 who did stuff like this 3x per week for YEARS.

                        Massive wall of words; in the end, little of interest other than seeing how you are trialling the event function . . .

                        Is the goal here to test the system and switching from one mode to the other?
                        Such short periods makes it impractical to play in many of these as it is very dependent on time zone.
                        I do find the idea of you trying to mix things up good but just unfortunate that some of the interesting events will not be at times I could play.

                        I've seen cadets in my matches since way before this patch, though not often at all.
                        It doesn't seem any different now than it has been, is what I mean. Not from my experience so far, anyways.

                        Would much rather a 24 hour cycle for the event queue. Or at minimum a 12 hour cycle.

                        Right now there could be events occurring in the middle of the night that I want to participate in, but its not worth screwing up my sleep schedule for it.

                        "Sweet! more cool events to experience with friends"

                        no groups

                        This content isn't meant to be enjoyed with friends I guess. I dunno about the rest of the community, but my friends and I pretty much never solo queue.

                        Are the mech sales only going to be active for the specific event timeframe (Like a 4 hour sale) or is it the sales going to be active for the week?
