You don't? All it takes is one of them to get beat one time when they think they shouldn't have.

No I don't, I'm out of tinfoil.

Agree, it was quite an enjoyable event. Some surprising results. I didn't even ran into any Crusader or Orion myself during the event.
And seems I got luckly with my oddball-build, the Night Gyr-H, which I played the entire event with unexpectatly good results.

Maybe the Sept Free Mech Event could be in some kind of similar fashion as well....and maybe even run a lil longer since its two Mechs this time... Posted Image

It should be decided by ammount of matches played, following this logic, a mech that played and won a single game, has 100% win ratio and wins the contest.
I wouldnt call SMN-B with whole 400 games a winner here..

I’m surprised by both of these. But, I’m glad to see that the ON1-VA is the free IS mech.
I was really hoping the ON1-IIC-A would have been the free clan mech, though.

AGREE! Everyone should have one of those in their collection! :)

It's probably the extra armor quirks on the Orions and the fact they are 75 tons and thus the heaviest mech that can be in the match? In QP, I've never gotten them to work well for me because of the low weapon mounts.

It's one of the "Up close and personal!" mechs so if that's not your playstyle then it won't work for you! ;)



One thing that worries me about giving away Heavy Mechs for FREE is that the QP Queue will be even more difficult to play with a Heavy Mech than it has been since the release of the Crusader so will there be any adjustments to the Matchmaker to compensate for this somehow ?!

Totally missed that at first! I was super confused because I only saw a handful of them. Gotta hand it to whoever used them for doing well, but all that would take is 4 decent players grinding for a day.

Not super surprised about the Crael. It's the stuff of nightmares 1v1 but doesn't quite instill the same terror in the group soup queue IMHO.

Fun event.

The Crusader 6T can easily take down a Crael, unless the 6T overheats, then it is game-over. As we know though, this game is not balanced for 1v1, also, melee like in MW5, would make Solaris style matches way more fun.
