No groups again?
Also, you really are putting the most fun (wacky) gamemode with unlimited JJs on 2am UTC? Why do you hate Europe so much? Posted Image

At least you have the choice of sleep or JJ spam. UTC 0200 is when most OCE players are at work :P

This looks fun. I assume you're doing a bit of testing with the player count, and the resulting affect on queue times?

I really dig the lack of groups. Nice to have a better chance of some decent matches, now that the trolls will be relegated to trying to synch drop.

Question that maybe somebody knows? To get unlimited JJ, do we have to equip at least one JJ? I'm sure this is similar to unlimited ammo we've seen before, but I never risked dropping without any ammo to see if I got ammo anyways. I always added at least half a ton of each ammo type I needed.

Yes, you must have at least one JJ equipped to take advantage of that modifier.

Trust me when I tell you that not equipping Ammo would be extremely bad. The last person who did that got totally locked out of Event Queue until the particular run in question was over. :(

Thank you for doing another Event Queue with the Urbies as a focus. It's likely that more people would be happy if you added more 4-hour segments, allowed the Event Queue to run for 36 to 48 hours, and changed up some of the Skirmish slots for things like Assault, Conquest, and Incursion styles of gameplay. Also, you may find it worthwhile to add more modifiers, such as some which people have already suggested, provided that they would not make things too broken. :)

That reminds me... Introduce "UrbanMech IIC" to MWO for people to enjoy, PLEASE! ^_^

Although I think having this modifiers on the segment that starts from 6pm UTC today would've been better than on ones that start at 6am UTC tomorrow. That way Europe timezone could've played the wackiest (most important) part of the event during our primetime.

I'll keep that in mind for the next event!
