And as always, take care and have a wonderful week!



Horde Roulette sounds fun. Is every map in the rotation ?

And thank you for the quick fix on Strikers Mace card. Havent been able to play the class since I found out the card wasn’t working.




Yay, Striker fix.

Horde Roulette sounds fun, but I just hope it isn’t locked to a map.

Interesting emote and mark :joy:

Not sure, everytime Horde Event sounds Fun, but it was Too Easy to play with that difficulty


Sounds like you need more Boss Rush in your life.

Well, if it was not in the event void, that is.

Both events look fun.

Two weeks, that’s enough time to finish all Operation 7 medals.

I’m sad I didn’t play Boss Rush in a Full Game :sob: mainly that time…

I was just a Potato at all…leveling up the Class

Horde roulette sounds fun… Another week and still no UIR Officer, Hivebuster Anya, or Dizzy. God I’m giving up now


I really liked Mania. Just wish it had Palace Gaurds and Good boss waves then it was a perfect mode.


Sweet, I `ll be finishing up the medals tomorrow night.

sucks how “there’s no room for that environment” doesn’t apply to you guys, such hypocrites :slightly_smiling_face:

still waiting for some characters from early OP’s - hopefully UIR Elite in the future as well
edit: and Valera :broken_heart:





Another weak looking PvP ‘event’ (am I the only one who feels slightly irked at that word being used for these slightly tweaked PvP offerings?), with dresses we cannot scrap and no coins we can use to upgrade class skills.

Oh, and while I’m grumbling, any news regarding the XP / boost issues from OP6. I can’t for one second believe* that TC would not compensate people for losing out on a paid-for product that, by its nature, simply has to work 100% of the time?

*I might not be being entirely truthful there…


So it’s basically the Anything Goes horde event from Gears of War 4?

Another amazing skin by the devs, well done @TC_Clown

pilot tak 01


I brought this up when middle finger expression 1st came out, saying how offensive it was and just because some people didnt find it offensive it doesn’t mean"everyone" wont find it offensive.

I also brought some other scenarios that some would and some wouldnt find offensive to attention, all these post got deleted.:+1:

But yay more events…
