Maybe this is a hot take, but this event really highlights how BS flamers are. There is no counter, there is no mitigation, just an "I win" for whoever has it as they permanently stun-lock whoever they're hosing down.

They may have made some sense in tabletop, but they have no place in MWO, and I will die on this hill.


I've had NO problem with flamers. I am in a K2 with Snubnose PPCs and 2x LB10x. I stop firing my PPCs and rely on the LBs until their flamers are gone. No sweat.

Huh? Your insults are like your run-hide-shutdown tactics that I have seen you do dozens of times. It doesn't make sense and isn't relevant to the topics at hand.

Why does anybody think it's wrong for experienced players with customized 'mechs to have an advantage over newbies? That's how it is in most MMOs. It's one of the reasons to play the game. It's really not hard at all to get one good heavy 'mech set up, especially with sales going on right now. I've gotten most or all of my victories in this event with C-Bill 'mechs.

I, as well as ALL of the members of my unit (Wolf Route Keshik WlfK), LOVE this, and the past events, like it. Keep up the GREAT work! We all came over from a copycat Mech game, and have quit it, completely. Took me awhile to get them in here, but, they are all sold on it, now! YAY!

I haven't lost a battle to a flamer Mech, yet. I've auto cannoned each of them, to death. Well, except for that 1 Timby... He overheated himself and got the suicide kill. HAHAHA! Poor dude.

Anyone else get single digit FPS on Liao Jungle, and anyone have a fix?

Just a couple points:
1. I miss Duncan Fisher. If we're gonna run a Solaris event, it'd be fun to reload the entire Solaris experience. :)
2. There was a reason PGI nerfed Flamers into the ground in Solaris. They seem to have forgotten about that when setting up this event. Perhaps a lesson learned for next time?

Only "Fix" I can think of is a better graphics card. That, or low graphics settings.

Favorite Event Que so far. I really miss Solaris and Duncan Fisher, Wish PGI would bring Solaris back even on a limited basis. Say limiting maps, divisions /weight classes or both. I would play it all the time if it was up.

Orion with MRM-20 + LB20X + 4xLPPCs rocks. Even if lost (out of 17 matches 10 victory) it farmed tremendous damage!
Free Orions for EVERYONE!

Well, the Crael is exactly what its for from Sarna, its an arena brawler. Even in my hands, depending on who i fight i was 7-3 twice. so 14-6. In 3RS i was 5-5, kept overheating with my setup, and i do well in QP, but different in 1v1. I was 1-3 vs other Crael setups, just not as good as them. and the ones i lost knew how to take out my mech, so better players.

i made a lot of CBills with it, thanks PGI! nice to do the arena thing once a month.

Honestly, I think this is a case study why "Solaris" events need to follow the Solaris divisions ( https://mwomercs.com/s7-mech-divisions ). and rules (lower Flamer heat damage, no consumables, no command wheel). Crael would be quite a happy competitor in Div 2 or perhaps even Div 1 where it would be mainly fighting assault mechs.

For everybody missing Duncan Fisher, his voice was bugged in Solaris and i don´t think they fixed it. But yes, something is missing.

Like i said before and many other players did. This is how Solaris should have been.
Make it 4 divisions, Light, Medium, Heavy and Assault.
Ban Flamers.
Showing the contestants at the beginning was nice to have. But experienced players could predict the loadout of the enemy before the match started.
Let the players choose the map and division/mech they want to play and then start matching players.

This event was really fun and i would happily play Solaris, if you bring it back with these changes. Oh and fix Duncan Fisher. Posted Image

Just ran into my first all rocket build. Hilarious one-shot and a great advantageous if you don't have to worry about a second shot.

This event also highlights something else, namely the broken scoring system what is easy to exploit and abuse.
I mean, and I tested it during this event, the current "only damage matters for score" is a sh!tpile more often than not. I played five games where I not wanted to win just wanted money (what comes after score). Spread and stacked damage like a crazy and in all matches got 2,5x more score AS THE LOSER than the winner.
So? Literally I named better by the game as a loser than the winner. So plausible I almost start to cry! I mean, really?! And if this is so prevalent in such a minor event how affective could it be in QP or FP or Comp matches? Some new, better scoring would need to implement what not punish the winner just because she\he not farmed like a lunatic ******...

Otherwise nice event. Liked that I could brawl with everyone! Salute for the winners!

An incredibly badly thought out and toxic event - why are the Crusaders even in it, can't buy them for C-bills and they are in serious need of a nerf bat attack.

Builds with multiple flamers (lots of skill there)

Match rewards are a joke, 3x experience and creds, brilliant if you win, but not worth logging into the game if you don't. With no tier matching, all that happens is that those higher tiered or with creds enough to troll build their mechs with full skill tree have a massive advantage over new players or those from lower tiers.

Best pathetic event for driving away the newer folk we desperately need.

Err... for this 2x2 Group Steiner Coliseum match, so how do we start this??
My Launch button is always greyed out, only for this 2x2 Group Steiner Coliseum thingy.

==>Do we set up our 2-man Group, each set up our Solaris Event drop deck, and press [Launch] separately??
