I have been reading everywhere that I can think of, and I have not been able to find any information at all about the "Contribution" Meter in the Solo MM instance. Due to HP I am in Category 4, and every time I enter the meter starts at Tier 1. I have filled it complete 100% almost every time I run the instance but I can find no changes and it never progresses to Tier 2.

So what is this thing actually for?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Hi!

There is only one contribution tier in the Merry Mayhem Solo instance. You need to have 100% contribution to receive the Strongbox when the instance is completed.

Not be able switch weapon and then get disconnected with 20 -40% left on boss ,reconnect and that run is lost = fail.
Past MM you would atleast reconnect back into that instance and continue. Sure you lose time but some runs you do for tests and tiering or fun :)

The lag is now a feature :)

and they won't compensate - they cite the EULA - which is not the best way to treat costumers.

it isnt the current reason for our lag problem, but welcome to what neutered NET NEUTRALITY will feel like, unless you pay $$$ for premium service...

you have a taste of the future now. make up your mind!
Hope you know that internet was just fine for over 20 years without the government in it. It will just be fine without it. Keep the politic bullshit out of this thread. It isnt relevant.

Hey, just want to make sure I have this right.
I am currently placed 5th in Cat 5.
My HP has jumped to where I would need to now compete in Cat 6.
If I finish a Cat 6 run then my Cat 5 score will be erased, correct?
Just want to continue doing dailies to get tokens but seems I will need to stop doing solo runs.

if you take in cat 5 higher place than you was at cat 4, your new ranking will be stored and previous will be erased

It gets erased regardless of placing.

Participants may only have an active placement in one category at a time. Recording a new placement (by killing the Merry Hogglo boss in the currently active instance) will remove any placements recorded in the current category, if the latest run is faster (would result in a higher placement). If a participant has an existing placement in a different category than the current instance, the existing placement will be replaced if the placement in the current instance category would be a higher rank than the existing placement.

Is it possible to chip out few hp's to get to the cat below even when you have done a few runs already?
Or is chipping in/out not allowed during event?

Yea I have read the rules it is just not clear to me if I can do solo 6 and not have it delete my solo 5 run. The rules make it sound like it would only replace my score if I got a better time but then again reading that I can only participate in one category makes me think otherwise lol.

If I remember correctly the wording was better placing not better time, but as is often the case the problem is not so much the wording for me but the subroutine that is actually run if you make runs in two categories. Has it been programmed properly or does it contain bugs?

If a person with good rep can say that they have taken part in 2 cats and what happened to their scores then I will believe that more easily than what MA rules say are supposed to happen... :eyecrazy:

The only thing that triggers a 'score' is killing the boss.

You can get a score in a lower category and go farm a higher one and as long as you don't kill the boss your score remains in the previous one.

I have been away for a week and just done first solo mayhem run - the lag is awful and frame rate sucks. The normal game play is fine and free for all old style event runs perfectly. Is any one else experiencing lag in this instance ?

yes, a deliberate MA induced lag. Just to create a level playing field for everybody ;)

It's on the level of unplayable for me both in the event and BattleSim. I've supported them for a long time but this is becoming ridiculous.

If you're in Cat 6 you weren't placing in any other event just like a vast majority of the player base. Not sure how this could ruin it any more than any other event; at least you actually have a small chance now.

Hell I'm top of Cat 4 right now with an (L) gun, an Augmented Ares, and some FPS experience.
