Will you activate event queue when this starts? We were told several times an event queue in the new map using only heavies was gonna be up with the patch and I'm quite disappointed that it wasn't there.

We are prepping that event for Friday and it will have it's own rewards :)
Want to make sure we get Max players involved to kick off the event as best as possible

Any Crusader, but still compare it to one for the Dervish which was the last new chassis - https://mwomercs.com/events/290

Dramatically more variety rather than just straight damage and done.

Observational query: I saw a friend running around in their new CRD-3R(S) without changing the loadout yet, and the LRM 15's in the arms only showed 9 tubes apiece. Further, when Phil/NGNG was previewing the CRD-7L, which has two missile hardpoints in the arms, but uses only one with the stock build, shouldn't the stock loadout fill the forearms, thus the forearms should be the primary missile slot, and the shoulders be the secondary missile slot, rather than the reverse as it currently stands?

Thanks for the insight!

I second what Matt is saying here. Sync-locking it with the Crusader Mech's release would have been very premature, and could have easily left too many players out of the Event's run. Heck, I'm gonna reach back up there and hit the 'Like' Button on his posting immediately after I put this up! ^_^


If there's any chance Matt would appreciate some feedback/suggestions on how long to run this Event, it might still be worth starting it on Thursday Afternoon PST (2022-06-23, somewhere early as 12:00 to late as 17:00 PST) to give it a nice cycle-up, and then run it through the following Tuesday Late Evening PST (2022-06-28, somewhere up to 23:59 PST) for a fun finish. That way, everyone from around the world (including those who keep really odd or irregular hours) can have the maximum time possible to check out and enjoy this "Vitric Station"-based Event Queue run. But then as a bonus, Matt also gets the chance to royally stress-test the Event Queue modules, and see if there are any background Bugs caused by an extended run pushing things to the edge which would need fixing as well! Or if some adventurous person catches an evident major issue early on and messages anyone in PGI's MWO Team about it, then having the slightly earlier launch would give a chance to totally pull the Event temporarily and put out a News Post which explains the situation. After that, those who worked on the Event Queue functions would more-or-less have plenty of time bought for them to fix the issue before the real main run happens. (But hey, maybe I'm just over-thinking the logistics for a major party on this one?) :D


And before I forget about asking, is there going to be anything actively encouraging the whole "Crusader vs. Anti-Crusader" thing which was mentioned in the recent video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koHJRPbIztk) prior to June 2022's Patch being released? As someone else I know could have phrased it, "Inquiring minds want to know!", or at least that's what I think they would have said... :o

*I'm trying to share a screen cap but to no avail. I'll describe it so just close your eyes and imagine the wonder!

Found this while looking for the kill counter in the Crusader cockpit. Well done PGI, well done.

By the pilots right hand there are three labels: "MISSLES", "MORE MISSLES", "ALL THE MISSLES"

You have to upload the picture somewhere else (Discord works), then copy the link into the MWO forums using the "image" feature at the top of the reply box.

Unfortunately, 11 years too late.

Also you could have given it two antenna so you could plagiarize the Armored GBP VF-1J.

You can gift me the Ultimate Crusader pack as an apology for 2016 Russ, and I might be tempted to dip my mecha toe in the MWO waters, as MWO is sorely lacking 5 star players.

You need to work with me, I don't need to work with you.
