it's going to be rough for me to fit getting all the lootbags with how busy I am around x-mas. I was really hoping each bag was only going to need 50 score/damage per

Thanks, these are always lots of fun. To mimic what Mino said though doing 3 weeks around the holidays and having to get a 15k match score is pretty tough. Could you maybe consider doing 75 or 50 match score per gift bag?

Also are the items on the 300 loot bags the 5% bonus ones? They look like they are?

Lastly I noticed you guys have events que's coming up, I love those. However PLEASE ADDRESS :) the match score issue when running the events ques. If you haven't noticed you buff everything else with the exception of the match score. That means your awesome 4 mech drop 20-minute games might net you 200-300 match score. It makes it really hard for lower players to want to join events que vs. just grinding it out for loot bags in QP.

Maybe not, but there are at least a few WarHorns which you can find in some of those Event Trackers between both that Advent Pack and the Stocking Stuffers... I know those are not many, but they happen to be better than nothing! :)

Just would like to point out that it seems no loot bags are being earned from event queue. Not sure if that's intentional or not, the stocking stuffer page says "any game mode".

True. EQ scores not count toward lootbags' scores!
BTW, instead of x3 CBs can not we ger x3 matchscore in EQ? I collect lootbags for XP (any kind) because I have sh!tload of CBs (over 140.000.000 I use only to skill mechs)...

Match Score when you're dealing with a Drop Deck is apparently being handled in the same manner as Faction Play. Unfortunately this means that what you're asking for having change done on is hard-coded and will be tough to fix. Worse, it so happens that the Match Score you're earning is being heavily deducted from every time one of your Mechs is killed. It really should only be docked when you've lost all of your Mechs, and not before then. That's why you're getting so little from Event Queue if any at all, and why some players (other than me, as I try not to operate on the following kind of thinking) reject properly playing towards a Victory for their whole Team over in the Faction Play environment. Some people simply do not put up with being heavily over-punished because of their Mechs being wrecked. I'm only being long-winded about this due to how many years overdue fixes for that happen to be. :mellow:

Considering the current skill level I am seeing in games that might not be a bad idea actually!

Maybe the skill level and player count is higher there and thus easier than MWO at the moment! LOL! Posted Image

But seriously : Some examples ?? :)

similar activities give a purpose in the game. I wish it was permanent. I followed throughout the event.

frankly, I am against events becoming easier. less grindy, maybe. but it doesn't feel rewarding to just get extra participation rewards for matches. imo mwo events simply aren't challenging and don't really add much to the game except free stuff.

the current average match score across the entire player base is 243. even if you're slightly below average and only score 200, it takes 75 matches to complete an event that's running for ~20 days, that means 4 matches a day and you pass. frankly, that's a participation award.

I don't want the match score requirement to be heightened though, since that only makes it more grindy, but it would be cool to see some special missions like the old "Get 500 match score once" for some additional loot bags.

I go with that. Low player base but let's keep things moving.

As long as this game lasts I decide to have fun with it.

I gotta say these are the worst lootbag drawings I've ever got. 50k cbills, 5 mc, 1 gsp, an airstrike. Im like 200 bags in and haven't gotten a single 25 gsp or 500k. All low tier values
