Finally a mech that isn't in my hangar yet

That's hard to do when there are 200 or so decent mechs to the other 1000 or so waiting quirk passes.

That is impressively low benchmarks to get everything.

Watch someone complain the expectations are too high still, and timeframe too short.

Earn 1 Counter ECM - 0/1 ppc , beagle probe , tag, uav , ecm in countre mode - still zero, and ..... in same time
Earn 1 Counter ECM Locked Damage - 1/1

It has always been weird to me how BT's creators chose a dragon to be the Kurita symbol rather than Capellan since Japanese dragons are more spiritual symbols and Chinese dragons are more associated with power.

Back in the days, Capellan wasn't China only, but to a mutual extent also Russian if I am not mistaken.

Aye, what exactly does this mean? I've been running a mech with ECM, running up to other mechs with ECM and toggling counter. Blasting said mech. Nothing yet.

Would love to have some other dragon, not sure what to build from 1G, hardpoints and quirks for the hardpoints are kinda horrible.


I dunno, I have had a lot of fun running around at 90+ kph with a pair of Heavy PPCs installed in those nice high shoulder mounts... here's my build, YMMV: An<920:1|Vg|i^|i^pb0|H@|i^qb0|H@|i^rX0|Y?sX0|Y?tb0ub0v40w606060

Also: Thanks PGI for all the bonus cockpit items and MC. A very generous event, and the Year of the Dragon tie-in is a nice touch. Keep up the good work.

Use an active probe that's how I did it.

The houses of battletech are just loosely based on our contemporary world cultures. Think of how Americans used to be (look, sound, behave ) very British some 300 years ago, and how not so much today. Have to be open minded like that, there are very japanese inspired worlds in Davion controlled space that are very distinct and have little to do with Kurita's, and are more the result of natural cultural evolution.

You need to counter the ecm, someone else needs then needs to hit them with lock on weapons(lrms etc.)

Not complaining, but I am just saying :

Getting WINS in this game has become the hardest achievement of all the last few years Posted Image



So in a way they have created a challenge even tho it seems easy, but is far from it... Posted Image

For me it's one of those mechs that I always consider, but quickly tell myself NOPE.AVI and continue browsing other mechs Posted Image

But now I will have one to join those guys who always Group Drop with them and PPC awaaay!!! LOL! Posted Image

"Earn 1 Counter ECM Locked Damage"

Can we please, in the name of one of the best game communities, once and for all clearify how the hell this thing works? If you google it you will get five year old results and still no answer.

I tried NARC on an enemy mech with ECM and teammates shot him with lurm, ATMs and SSRMs.
I used UAVs so my team could hit enemy ECM mechs with lurms.
I switched my ECM to counter mode and shot an enemy ECM mech with SSRMs.

PS: Can you add a description for these "not so clear challenges" in the event?

Completed it while using ATMs and a c-light active probe.

Tried all your listed combinations, only this probe+atm thing worked. Im not even sure what counted, myself shooting ATMs or someone else homing on the target I unstealthed with the probe, or vice versa.

Just noticed the Dragon model, the right arm seems off? Like out of place. It appears to be the case for all variants, but don't know if it's intended
