Always with the awkward time difference between phases, that then overlaps.
Makes me not want to play until both phases are up.

Beach Party 2022!

LOOT BAG EV


I have found a small problem with the reward pattern:

One event page says ...
  • Your choice of Tiger Camo Unlock

..while the other event page says:
...your choice of Woodland Pattern Unlock.

That's all well and good, but how's it going for you? Do you think of something like that from one day to the next, or long before that and if so, why don't we see anything about it before the event?
e.g. Future events should have an announcement, shouldn't they?

Why aren't there events for purchased mechs that run until you complete them?
The Platinum Mechs e.g. you could do events that are like a quest.

Time-limited events should only exist for things that can be paid for with play money, or really time-limited events.

I often ask myself why a lot of things in this game are handled so illogically.

I no longer buy Platinum Packs because I'm under time pressure to do the event is the same with other Mech Packs.

Then there are the long waiting times until two teams have finally been put together.
5-10 minute wait for a 5 minute game.

It would also be good if we had a Mechwarrior Online again and not a Sniperwarrior Online.

What are the options for the free hero mechs? I never found the selection, or has it just not been shown yet?

You must wait.

Still to be revealed. I just hope the list includes some that I don't have and may find interesting.

The first one is Matchscore, the second one is damage. I think this way is among one of the fairer ways to do it. Rack up 7500 Matchscore in Phase one, then another 7500 while doing 15k Damage, finish both about the same time. Sure, doing more matchscore in the first phase may feel like a waste, but what are the alternatives:

- End phase one when phase two starts still with 15k Matchsore requirement? -> I can hear the whining about doing 15k in two weeks already, but really does no good to anyone, so let us not do this.
- End phase One with 7.5k MS before phase two starts: Would still not benefit the players, would feel roughly the same, but if you do not get the MS you cannot catch up in the last two weeks -> may lead to frustration / lower player count, let us not do this
- Have the two phases completely unrelated goals, either overlapping or not, like first phase "shoot 100 UAV" and second with the 15k damage requirement as it is -> Ugh, no one wants this.

Let us just keep it the way it is, if you want to do all the stuff in phase two or stop playing after 7.5k Matchscore in phase one, be my guest - nowadays i think you are still doing more time on the battlefield doing this than most of the population would without the events.

See you around!

Just have both active at the same time since they overlap later anyways. Does not hurt anyone, just makes it less awkward.

FIXED - was going to be woodland pattern but we changed it to Tiger as it is more suitable for Summer :)

Hey Matt and team could you consider coding in a better option for the GSP? It really sucks getting twenty "1 GSP" and maybe getting one 25 GSP. Maybe consider randomizing it a bit more like the MC maybe like 3-5 are more common and a 10 GSP is rare. Heck you can even equal it out the same as before but just feels a little better than opening up 1 GSP. Just a thought! Thanks for another great event!

Wow, this event is sick! It feels like it gets better every year. Thank you so much, PGI! Posted Image


(Small request for future rewards, more Cockpit Standing - 5% c-bill bonus items, please! I have 31 Cockpit Hanging c-bill bonuses, but only 4 Cockpit Standing bonuses after buying multiple 'Mech packs. I'm perpetually space poor so I utilize both items in my cockpit to maximize my c-bill earnings... Posted Image)
