Domination and conquest with 4-mech dropdecks doesn't work well. Would be great if you could change it up, but unless that happens, event queue to me is just a very badly balanced gamemode that isn't very fun to play.

Glad to see event queue in use, but we just had domination. Will the timer be increased for this event? It should be doubled.
Also, can we see some modifiers thrown in from time to time to mix things up? Otherwise it's just QP on a fixed map and mode.

Conquest and Dom will probably be fine if it uses the FP values for events where the drop deck is enabled. With normal QP values the games tend to end too fast, and Conquest tends to devolve into pure cap strats with very little shooting.

Hey guys can you make it x3 match score too? It seems to me that these event ques are pretty low MS and for those of us who are still earning match score for the free mechs it sucks that we really can't bank on these and just end up doing QP.

it uses QP values, and I don't expect that to change soon. so yeah...

I love weekend Domination Events!
Please keep these coming!!

Note to MWO: Events with 4x mech drop decks actually do stimulate players to buy more mechs, and perhaps even some more Heroes...

Great! The Event Queue has been fun, but use the longer FP timer for domination. I want to bring some chunky boys along and it spoils it with only 8v8 and a 1min timer

Thanks for this! And as others have said, a bit more time on the dom timer circle would be helpful - Also just a touch more time per round so all mechs get used - even 22 minutes instead of 20 would likely be sufficient. Thanks

Can we make events with drop decks have a longer domination timer. Between no coms, potatoes and bad timing, a lot of matches end long before they should.

The community has repeatedly told you how to fix dom events PGI.
Why won't you listen?
Last event I dropped dozens of times.
Ran out of mechs once.
Drop ended on not time out once.
Bush league.
Do it right.

I love these events but the modes timers are far too low for four mechs..

Can we have a (better) sale too? Only a few mechs and engines on sale isn't that much to be honest.

How are you doing with the matchmaker? When will they bring?

P.S. The game is disgusting. Today out of six fights - 5 defeats. Gg, PGI.

I like that there are so many events going on. I realize that PGI probably doesn't have the income to support a new mech every month, but these events, while cheap to do, show that they still care about the game. That it's not being neglected. If that's all you guys can do for now, that's fine. Keep doing it

Adjusting the Domination timer for Event Queue and Drop Decks is on the top of my list for adjustments that I would like to bring to EQ. This list also includes Conquest adjustments, some modifier additions/changes, and bringing Drop Decks (DropShips) to more maps. I can skip Domination with Drop Decks for the rest of this weekend schedule though.
