Impossible to play unless you are in a very organized group.

Thanks for the event, but no thanks.

Good luck to all of you that can do it.

You don't give enough time for the event to people. It is immediately clear that you do not know the realities of the MWO. You can’t even imagine how much time it takes to complete all these tasks.

First, and only, FP drop for this event, 8-man and a 2-man group on the other side. All 12 pugs on ours.
A quick reminder on why I quit FP to begin with.

Well, I guess this will be a "grind rewards and done" for me, for now. Guess we'll see if I can even manage that. Showing up and rubbing my presence in certain faces won't keep my interest for long, nor should it.

I'm surprised that no one had bothered to tell the players new to FP how to start playing.
It's doable, but need guidance...

Does anything special need to be done in order to participate? such as drop deck requirements or mech requirements?

We are not getting credit for kills on the in game event page for loot redemption, just on the website. That is going to be super confusing for newer players.

Also, for those of us not in the uber elite groups, getting 5 victories will likely not happen. They consistently roll any enemy not made up of a similar elite group.

Just make FP all random (no pre-made groups), only during these FP Events...

Otherwise players new to FP would conclude it's not worth their time...

What are you talking about? Some people claim that only groups saved the MWO from death. Groups are the highest good for this game.

I don't mind groups, but, I would like my group of pretty ok players to go against other pretty ok players, not groups of elite ninja death squads that strip my armor with IS ERLL's at 800 meters through a keyhole I am exposed through for 4 seconds.

Here is the truth PGI about Faction play its going to bomb on the events unless you make FP playable for everyone in MWO not just the comp players and meta junkies you're just going to have a baby seal slaughter if any pugs even try to group up and join the event.

So, my suggestion would be to have the matchmaker group up the first 12v12 with pugs and 4–12-man groups in ques not giving the 12 mans any advantages in FP ques and to keep the baby seal clubbing down make it (stock only mechs) are playable.

Cam we remove domination from FP? Waiting 15-25 min for a match to last only t min is quite ... frustrating to say the least.

Your right on the mark here pal it was the common players that are really the bread and butter keeping MWO alive the comp and fp teams are the ones that really killed Faction play with there relentless seal clubbing of weaker teams and any new and casual players that tried to play FP.

PGI never understood good Bracket play where the matchmaker matched teams by wins and losses or a way to keep matchmaking more evenly matched to insure more fun games and less stomps. Solo wuick play now with the introduction of groups is basically the same way very unbalanced game play.

I liked solo quick play the way it was originally and Faction play the way it was year1-3.

Event Page Bugs report:
https://mwomercs.com/events/522

1) Only Killing Blows count towards the [10x_Kill/KMDD_in_Faction_Play] accolade... please fix, thanks!

2) Clan kills only count towards IS_Kills (IS/Clan Kill counts switched around?)
ie: [Earn 5 IS Kills in Faction Play] = 2
~~When I've played only Clan faction (I was with Wolf faction)



Noticed same thing. Bug on kills.

(nice event, thanks)

Guess we'll see how grievous a mistake this was. Eventually. Not sure I want to jump into a Discord just yet. Discord mic issues are nearly as bad as MWO mic issues anyway.

EDIT: Ha. Right. Groups get shunted in before solos anyway. Forgot about that. Eh, whatever. **** me for working night shift. I'll go screw around in QP for a bit instead.

Bad move with this event... when you have one or two groups of players just dominating FP which PGI knows... will totally turn people off from playing FP even more...
