Please only one (1) submission per account. Only submissions received prior to midnight Tuesday, November 1st will be eligible. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 2nd at 10am PST here on this post and on Twitter. The Top 5 winners (chosen by Piranha Staff) will receive the following PRIZES!

*Excluding Spooky Bundle 'Mech Packs
4th - Hero 'Mech of Choice
1st - Ultimate 'Mech Pack of Choice


THE RESULTS ARE IN!
I know it's often said in contests like these, but it truly was difficult to narrow it down to the top 5. In fact, we've extended it a couple numbers, and two Runners-Up will each be getting 1,000 MC and 1,000,000 C-Bills for their efforts. There were so many great submissions beyond these top 7 though, from the 'Mech band KISS, Spiderman, Spirit Bears, and amazing stories behind some of images and their creation. You all are so creative, a big thank you to everyone who participated! But without further ado, the Top 5 submissions for the 2022 Spooky and Spectacular Costume Screenshot Contest are...

In 5th Place, and the winner of a Spooky Bundle of Choice...



In 4th Place, and the winner of a Hero 'Mech of Choice...



In 3rd Place, and the winner of a Platinum 'Mech Pack of Choice...



In 2nd Place, and the winner of a Spooky Bundle 'Mech Pack of Choice...



In 1st Place, and the winner of an Ultimate 'Mech Pack of Choice...


Congrats to the above MechWarriors!

Two Runners-Up who were so close to the top 5 are also receiving 1,000 MC and 1,000,0000 C-Bills each for their efforts. They are (in no particular order)...







IF YOU WON, LOOK FOR A FORUM MESSAGE FROM DAERON TODAY! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, CONTACT DAERON.KATZ@PIRANHAGAMES.COM

Thank you again to everyone who participated, it really was close! Let's do this again. Maybe a holiday costume contest in December? Nightmare Before Christmas counts...

It would be nice to see a more complete schedule for these weekend events so that I can plan to be on when an event mode that interests me is taking place.

Great choice! I love the boosted assault brawl. Please do this for other weight classes too.

And if there are any domination or conquest this time, please increase the ticket count this time!

Quick question; where do we submit our screenshots? Can I use steam?

So, I'm not sure if this is the where you're supposed to submit these? If I'm wrong, please let me know.

Have all the events been open to all tiers? This one obviously is . . asking because just finished getting farmed by folks I've only ever seen in videos (comp, YouTube, etc..) and never played against before. Quite a noticeable difference. Honestly, not too enjoyable.

Yes, I would be a tier 9 if there was one.

Here is my submission. My friend and I play together as he and I have since day 1 so it is only fitting to post a picture with both of us in it. We had a lot of fun shooting at each other to take these photos!

Just in case the dual mech photo is not a viable submission, I also included a mech bay photo (second photo) so you know which mech is mine. I hope instagram links are ok.

Why can't you set exactly the same conditions for the Quick Play too, so the players of both game modes would get the same opportunity to earn those rewards?

I died from overheating. In a no overheating match. Something seems off.

Event queue has no matchmaking algorithm, it puts together matches as soon as there's enough players queued.

I would also like to point out that removing tier restrictions in matchmaking has been something certain casual players have been asking for - nay, demanding - since forever. I think it's patently evident why it's a horrible idea.

It's not really "no overheating", rather cooling has been cranked up incredibly high. Ghost heat still applies and can still screw you up.
