I know you guys have been super busy, but any chance we can get some new Bundles for sale? The Spring Bundles were the last and were almost in Fall. I would love to give you more of my money please. Thanks!

Moved to the last week of August due to a busy week of meetings.

Wait, what? Patch canceled? Where did you hear this?

EDIT: I see the confirmation from Daeron. I'm over here hitting "refresh" looking for patch notes, looking for something better than Discord Rumors that we're getting HAGs.

Patch not cancelled, just the Faction Play event last week, which is moved to the last week of this month. Working on getting the patch notes up now! Posted Image

Ahhhh. Okay. Word grouping is key. :) (Not sure this is a situation where punctuation would have helped, because that looks correctly punctuated). Eagerly awaiting their publication!

It was my mistake - It's called a "garden path" grammatical error iirc - Having spent a couple years (admittedly long ago) working in a psycholinguistics lab it's an error I shouldn't have made - my apologies for the confusion

Having a blast with the event but getting my back side kicked...my usual loadouts are unsuitable for duels.

I hope they might make a Camo Sale be the "Unlockable" ones this time? Last time was only the "One-Shot" kind which don't work for me, seeing as I edit my paint jobs several times when I have "Unlockable" ones to use. :mellow:

Heck... I'm surprised (perhaps depressed/shocked???) we have not been given the option in the last few years (since that danged pandemic messed up all our lives) of a Community-Wide Event where enough contribution from all the players could result in something like a permanent decrease in (MC) prices on some of the more expensive in-game items? It could have actually caused players to have more reason for working together, instead of letting the unfortunate partial climate of anti-cooperation continue to fester. :o

As it is, they still have not released/implemented Non-Legendary versions of the "(LGD)" Mechs to balance things in the game, not introduced non-special versions of various Cockpit Items which were added by a series of Mech Packs over time, not released/implemented non-special versions of various Bolt-Ons (preferably with ability to color) that the Community has been calling for on other threads, and skipped over the whole thing about the "Mech_Con" Camo finally being permanently released into (MC) purchase mode for players to enjoy on their Non-Special Mechs during gameplay. That's a rather strong list of missed content which could have kept the players more calm than they are, and I'm merely trying to make note of these things — but not put people at PGI into the fire metaphorically either... :(

These 1v1 and 2v2 events are the pits, the full 8 man events are much more decent. This just gets repetitive and really old quick which means back to QP. Run a great event that can house full teams and the event gets more attention than QP does. Come on PGI.

TY for the event, good for your cbill wallet these solaris events are...
In the future it would be nice if you add a bit more variety to the solaris event that instead of just a specific weight class from a specific tech base have it change too when the map changes

So I can't speak to the rest of it, but I know that, at the time, anyone who attended 'Mech Con got the camo unlock for every single 'mech in their game, and anyone who bought the Tournament Supporter Pack that year got to pick 4 chassis to have it unlocked on. Based on the "if you attended, you have it on every 'mech" reward, I'm skeptical of them releasing it for MC purchase for every 'mech, in the future. That said, they re-released Loyalty 'mechs that people thought they had bragging rights to, so maybe it'll happen, anyway?
