Thanks for setting up Event Queue. Here are my suggestions –

1. 8v8 groups 1-2, drop deck, 285 tons, Rubellite Domination
2. 8v8 groups 1-2, drop deck, 285 tons, HPG Manifold, Conquest (medium map for Conquest)
3. 8v8 groups 1-2, drop deck 285 tons, Mining Collective, Conquest (smaller map for Conquest)
4. (Limited to 1 session) 8v8 groups up to 8 (simulate old group queue), drop deck 285 tons, Canyon Network, Domination
5. 10v10 groups 1-3, drop deck, 285 tons, Viridian Bog, Conquest (medium map for Conquest)
6. 4v4 groups 1-2 / solo-only, heavy mechs only, Mining Collective, Domination
7. 4v4 groups 1-2 / solo-only, assault mechs only, Caustic Valley, Domination
8. 10v10 groups 1-3, drop deck,360 tons, Domination, unlimited ammo, +100% armor modifier on HPG

Correct the game modes, you have scouting and escort listed.

Using the CD modifiers broke hitreg on the PTS, I believe it was desync between server and client? probably best to be removed.

Unlimited consumables, easy way to break an instance with UAV spam, this also happened on the PTS so is probably best to be removed.


Agree with all the events BDS suggested though, although having some with no groups at all would be nice, maybe something silly like:

Polar Highlands - Single drop Assault Mech only, 2x Speed, 100% more armor - Domination


1. 8v8 groups 1-2, drop deck, 285 tons, Rubellite Domination
2. 8v8 groups 1-2, drop deck, 285 tons, HPG Manifold, Conquest (medium map for Conquest)
3. 8v8 groups 1-2, drop deck 285 tons, Mining Collective, Conquest (smaller map for Conquest)
4. (Limited to 1 session) 8v8 groups up to 8 (simulate old group queue), drop deck 285 tons, Canyon Network, Domination
5. 10v10 groups 1-3, drop deck, 285 tons, Viridian Bog, Conquest (medium map for Conquest)
6. 4v4 groups 1-2 / solo-only, heavy mechs only, Mining Collective, Domination
7. 4v4 groups 1-2 / solo-only, assault mechs only, Caustic Valley, Domination

The last Atlas-only event was pretty popular. Maybe do the same with other popular chassis.

Hunchbacks, Centurions, Awesomes

Should make these events at least 1 day though since people work and can't play when it's on.

I like any of the matches that are basically a standard match but with a 4M Drop Deck; it adds an interesting element of additional strategy. (Last event had one on Vitric that was really fun)


Match Size: 8v8 or 12v12
4 'Mech Drop Deck
Max Drop Deck Tonnage: 285

GAME MODE:
Skirmish
or
Domination

DROP DECK MAPS:
Tourmaline Desert
HPG Manifold
Vitric Station
Free Worlds Colosseum
(All of these get to the action pretty quick for respawns)

No Restrictions

MUTATORS:
20 Minute Match
or
25 Minute Match

I'm boring I know but this was so fun for me.

I like this! Vanilla drop-deck modes. I think it’d be cool if the rotation was every 4 or 6 hours so you get to try out all the maps and so it’s not the same thing for 12 hours straight.

NO! Stock mechs sounds NOT FUN! I can only imagine people starved for c-bills bothering with this (and the very few people who think stock mechs would be fun) I think Trial Mechs-only would be 99 times better than stock mechs.

During the last event, we got many, many requests for Scouting Mode. We hear you, however Scouting Mode is not currently an option in Event Queue.

Will it be added sometime?

Meanwhile, I'd like to request the following:

"Not Scouting, I swear":
Match size: 4v4
Any groups
Single mechs
Max tonnage: 55
Game mode: Conquest
Map: Any of: Forest Colony, Frozen City, Caustic Valley, River City, Tourmaline Desert, Frozen City Classic, Crimson Strait, Grim Plexus, Rubellite Oasis, Scrapyard.
Faction Restriction: Can it be restricted in a team level, so that each team is formed of a single faction (ie: either it's Clan vs IS, Clan vs Clan or IS vs IS, no mixed teams)? If yes, then please. Else, no restriction.
Weight Class Restriction: Light and Medium
Mech Type Restriction: None
Mech Chassis Restriction: None
Mech Variant Restriction: None
Mutators: Force 1st Person


This should somewhat approximate the territory control nature of the mode.

"Not Scouting, I swear II":
Match size: 4v4
Any groups
Single mechs
Max tonnage: 55
Game mode: Skirmish
Map: Any of: Forest Colony, Frozen City, Caustic Valley, River City, Tourmaline Desert, Frozen City Classic, Crimson Strait, Grim Plexus, Rubellite Oasis, Scrapyard.
Faction Restriction: Can it be restricted in a team level, so that each team is formed of a single faction (ie: either it's Clan vs IS, Clan vs Clan or IS vs IS, no mixed teams)? If yes, then please. Else, no restriction.
Weight Class Restriction: Light and Medium
Mech Type Restriction: None
Mech Chassis Restriction: None
Mech Variant Restriction: None
Mutators: Force 1st Person, 100% more armor (does this also apply to structure?)

This should approximate what Scouting matches often descended into: no-holds-barred 4v4 brawls.

Some people need to experience it personally to understand how horrible an idea it is.

Alpine peaks, light mechs only. 2x mech speed, 3rd person only.

I want to see those mechs running around at 300kph!

There’s certain modifiers that are not viable at all or not viable under certain conditions. Like Tselakus was mentioning about the PTS with increased cooldown, it will cause hitreg issues. With unlimited consumables, the UAV spam will break the servers and potentially crash the match. Speed modifiers for lights and mediums can make it so certain mechs break the current top speed and make hitreg totally screwy. While I remember people playing increased speed modifier light/medium events your shots may/may not register.
