Lot of holiday stuff this year, its almost like they are trying to revive interest in the game or something...

Advent Calendar stuff, minor easily achievable stuff every day leading up to Christmas. Its not restricted to just that day either so plenty of time to get them done.

Classic lootbag event, no 'Mechs to earn just colors and patterns. Phase 1 get 1 lootbag for each 100 Match score you accumulate, Phase 2 1 lootbag for each 100 damage you do.

And the return of the good old Boxing Day event extended to New Years Eve.

Just C-Bill boosted version of existing variants with the default pattern set to mountain line, but get them and quite a lot for one game.

Good idea--I hope they are able to encourage participation.  I'm curious as to how much they will reinvest in MWO this year.  I think they are taking good steps, but the proof will be in the pudding.

It's a good move, the C-Bill boost will encourage new players to play more.

The only problem I had with the bonus Max worth at the individual Max were no longer considered Phoenix hot or UrbanMech. They were Fireball. Phoenix Hawk and Snowball the urban mech which could be darn confusing making some one think they were facing actual light Fireball vs Medium size Phoenix Hawk!

The Hermes II Mercury would like to have a word.

That would never stop PGI if they really wanted to release the Fireball for real, but yeah even if they do restart 'Mech packs think that light will be waaaay down the list.

They need to do SOMETHING.  things are pretty static, but the surviving MWO (including me) are fine at the moment. We need at least another map or 2 spice things up.

I can't stand Solaris.  I secretly want a Hauptmann OmniMech in the game since it's most feasible thing they could pop in there.   Thunderhawk would be joyful but i doubt that would happen.  Light Mech wise i'd like see actual Fireball in the game for hilarity it racing over engined UrbanMechs.
