SEPTEMBER - 2 FREE MECHS EVENT!

Complete Challenges to earn the ORION ON1-VA and the SUMMONER SMN-B!

Perhaps it would be a good idea to remove the August challenge from the front page carousel and replace it with the current event.

And remember, matchscore farming with AMS/LAMS is no longer possible!

you don't get much MS anymore from using AMS. they have changed that a few months ago. probably after you took your 7A out.

PGI has changed it (I can not remember when, maybe two months ago). Enemy missiles destroyed by your AMS no longer raise your Match Score.


Three of you, WHERE??? You claim AMS don't add to match score or adjusted, but all fail to remember when.
I challenge you to post link because, I checked and this never happen, last patches I could find that matter to AMS is back in 2021 March and April.

AMS still adds the same amount to match score per missile destroyed.

After examining the Match Score for AMS, we did determine it needed a reduction.

Matchscores again. Grinding in QP... It means I need to play every single day what is BAD... I not play more than 1-3 matches per day and play 3-4 days per week.
I would not be able to seize these two because the necessary amount of GRINDING...
Need to dust Lurmers again because GRINDING (and QP would full of them again) what means FARMING...
Previous events with variable goals were so much more fun. I am not against free mechs but a bit more variety may not hurt that much...

And now "matchscore protecting posts" incoming...

Yeah, you all agree with me just not dare to admit...


Agree.

Matchscore is low hanging fruit. Anyone can get it by doing any number of easy things, even popping a UAV...

Let's have some hard-core interesting challenges. Solo kills, headshots, 4, 5 or 6 kills in a single match. Single match damage targets.

Personally I would prefer if mechs were frontloaded in the rewards (with something enticing at the end too to keep people from giving up) so that I could be playing with the new mech and earning xp in it.

Patch notes is the factor of what is dev change and when (they do miss stuff at times but that is not a good case to back up on, need to show other evidence that this was forgotten in patch notes), Cauldron only present possible Balance. The Patch notes make detail what will be pushed into game. March 2021 Patch only said they did not do AMS and will bump it to a later date, which came... when?

If Someone in Cauldron could present the change the number they wanted that would at least be a start to show any bit of info they were pushing it.

The change was not announced in the patch notes. But it was in March '22. There's a hint on the roadmap: https://mwomercs.com/roadmap.
AMS gives no rewards what so ever now, as far as I'm aware. Talk was CBills, but I could not find corresponding hints in the payout screens when testing this.

Well thanks, at least it's a start. I don't care about what is the correct answer but to know it really was pushed or not into the game, since I can't find any proof to convince myself but claims.

I read it can be determined in match maker. (I guess if I can't find proof I will need to test for proof which is true)

Did you bother to even search the forums, the math was explained years ago in a thread but essentially 7 missiles intercepted is worth 1 point of match score, and that was after it was degraded from a rate which originally I think was 1 point every 3.5 missiles.

I don't minf the 20,000 match score level, you get a lot of cBills and GSP on the way. Plus this might be a gimmick to increase play hours by the population... then again, I've thought that all along. Posted Image

Regardless, thanks in advance for two free mechs!

Even if AMS does not directly add match score, it may increase yours indirectly by keeping you alive from those using lurms to get their match score. :D

He does have a point, tho. I scoured the patch notes looking for this when it came up in conversation in NGNG Twitch stream. I had no idea it was in the roadmap, I just knew that bonuses weren't being handed out for AMS anymore by the way my Jester was performing.

Match score is too hard. Couldn't we just do an event based off lurm and micro pulse damage?

Just load into a game and farm missiles while doing little else to generate match score and see what your end game total is.

I wouldn't recommend doing this in an Assault since people might get salty. Maybe the PIR perhaps. That way you will know once and for all.Posted Image



I mean, you are still actively playing if you are protecting your team, right?

I am not going to repost the already posted links.

I just vaguely remember Daeron Katz mentioning the possible change briefly in one of his talk months agos. I think that the change happened in Spring or early Summer. There was no wordy description about it in the patch notes, it has just happened in the background.

Feel free to equip your 'Mech with any weapon system or equipment set that you see fit and useful.
