A 5.0 kdr in a scout suit?

Good f*ing luck.

I'll just keep hold of the suits thanks.



Hopefully when people drop down to 40 suits and getting only a few kills with 10 deaths to their Black Eagle dropsuit count, they will realize that holding on to them would probably be the better idea.

I can see tons of snipers using this scout suit to get points; I know I will, and I will be farming them quite a bit (averages in my games tend to be 20-0 to 30-0, depending where I snipe), so I know that capping them to 70 by CCP is a good idea on their part.


It does say kills with a dropsuit weapon. Perhaps that refers to the pre-fitted BPOs on it. I.e. no kills from other weapons you put on the suit.
Though hopefully it just means that installation, vehicle and OB kills won't count.


Blue post already mentioned you have to use the weapons that come with the suit to qualify. I think this needs to be made crystal clear in the OP.

Can we adjust the black E suit and still qualify?


You can adjust the suit, but you have to get the kills with one of the default weapons on the suit.

Additionally with the Winter Carnage event, Grenades are not counted for the event either (they aren't a sidearm, light or heavy weapon)


As for this month's events. Time to dust off dust. Nice stuff CCP. Yeah I'll get proto-stomped I'm sure, but not sure I'll be too mad with all the stuffs.

November Mastery Reward
The goal of battle is to win. But for some, winning is not enough. You must dominate your opponent completely and make him regret ever facing off against you. In November, we will be rewarding people when they do master the art of war. Every day, for your best 3 wins (in terms of War Points earned), you will earn double the amount of War Points in Skill Points. These bonus Skill Points will not count against your weekly cap and will be awarded every Tuesday.


Accelerated SP Week
From November 6 to 13, players will earn active Skill Points from battles at three times the normal rate. During the week, your weekly Skill Point cap will be tripled as well. Passive Skill Point gain will remain normal.


Black Eagle Battle Test
The Black Eagles are running a public trial of their iconic 'Black Eagle' Scout G/1-Series dropsuit from November 14 to 21. Every player will be provided with 50 Black Eagle dropsuits absolutely for free. For every 5 kills scored with a Black Eagle dropsuit weapon, you will earn an additional Black Eagle dropsuit at the end of the trial! These bonus dropsuits will be capped at 70.


Winter Carnage
It's time to paint the snowy white winter red with blood! From November 23 to 30, using your best weapons to rack up the kills will earn you bonus rewards. Best of all, the rewards are based entirely on the weapon you use! Any heavy, light, or sidearm you use in battle is eligible for these rewards.
  • For every 10 kills made with a Standard weapon, earn 1 Advanced-tier weapon of the same type.
  • For every 10 kills made with an Advanced weapon, earn 2 Prototype-tier weapons of the same type.
  • For every 10 kills made with a Prototype weapon, earn 1 copy of the 'Quafe' Scout gk.0 dropsuit.

All kills must be made with the same weapon type. All rewards are capped at 100 copies.

thank you for these events

caveat

the basic laser 84m elm laser 84m viziam laser 84m and all three do 17 per bullet .
the viziam laser is a PROTOTYPE weapon but a basic laser is better.

so as far as lasers go its pointless to use anything but the basic laser .

Question about the Winter Carnage event, I hope to get a CCP comment on this:

If we use a variant of a weapon, would you get the prototype variant of that weapon?

For instance, if I kill 10 people with a MO-4 Assault Heavy Machine Gun, do I get 2 Freedom Assault Heavy Machine Gun or 2 Boundless Heavy Machine Guns at the end of the event?

some clarification on the weapon part.

do I have to make those 10 kills in one match?

if I kill 9 mercs then die and then kill the 10th does it count?

in other words to qualify for the weapon rewards do the 10 kills have to happen in the same match with the same clone?

this game makes me sad....

All kills must be made with the same weapon type. All rewards are capped at 100 copies.

So i could rack up quite a decent amount of weapons? And of the last mentioned rewards are each capped to 100? Like if i would get 1000 kills with my duvolle i get 100 quafe scouts? Additionally if i make 500 kills with my GEK-38 i get 100 duvolles and for 1000 kills with a exile i get 100 GEK-38. Did i got that right?

So, does each clone that we have get 50 black eagle dropsuits, or is it linked to your account, as in 50 for your entire PSN?

Nope already confirmed by a dev earlier, you need to get kills with the weapons they come with.

A couple more clarifications.

Passive battle SP is not increased, it's only active battle SP that is increased.

You do not need to get the 10 kills in the same match. It is cumulative.

I'm surprised at this choice since the feedback the last time you did this was that

1) the grindfest to cap out was massive
2) it encouraged proto pub-stomping

which rather takes away from the reward of additional SP.

Take a look at this easy-to-understand chart: http://i.imgur.com/ukxHabM.png?1

Bad decision, IMO.
