This exact GHR-5H Grasshopper was already in the Lucky Charms Event

Ebon Jaguar was already in the November Free Mech Event

A free variant of any of the Jaguar related Mechs would be nice.

Like any of the H variants for the Stormcrow, Ebon Jaguar, Mist Lynx, and Arctic Cheetah. And any known variants for the Charge and Hatamoto-Chi would be nice. Just saying.

will play this one. its something different to do over the usual nascar-with-the-parking-break-on style gameplay that's been plaguing qp lately. i just hope siege is enabled this time.

<*stares at this Event but can not get in the mood*> -_-

If only the Incursion Mode had not been removed entirely, and instead there had been change for a couple of mechanics to make it better. After all, why were those destructible buildings & turrets not possible to be targeted with Lock-Ons through use of TAG/NARC assistance measures? Completely protecting those destructible buildings & turrets from Lock-Ons made the mistake of invalidating Streaks when they should not have been! Heck, the number of turrets could have been increased, while the overall health of an individual turret could have been decreased, just to avoid those being frustrating. :angry:

Yeah... I might have been able to get in the mood for trying CW/FW/FP again if worthwhile Objective-based Modes (again, Incursion... and also Escort which needed to be made symmetric as well) were not constantly being torn away from those who liked "MechWarrior 2" & "MechWarrior 3" variety style of things to play. Also the system for Match Setup in that CW/FW/FP area needs to be enhanced to avoid wrongful pug stomps occurring. :huh:


Now that I've said the whole depressive part of what was on my mind... I wish those who choose diving solo into CW/FW/FP all the best at their chance of succeeding, even though I have heard those chances are rather grim. ;)

The very purpose of this event is precisely to attract players to the FP. As you understand, this goal has nothing to do with quick play. Involving quick play directly contradicts the point of this event.
