Hi everyone and welcome to the slightly differently formatted What's New MPQ edition for December 2023!

In an effort to make referencing characters a little easier for new players, I've changed the formatting to include character rank and full cover name in every mention. It makes things read a little longer, but this will help alleviate any confusion players can run into when trying to understand which variant of characters are being displayed. This is also my first time doing this from the ground up so please bare with me for any errors that'll potentially pop up. I'll try to address as quickly as I can.

Please note that some events do not Placement Rewards listed as they have not been finalized and some event names are TBA for the same reason.

The below schedules are subject to change so check back periodically as I update the calendar throughout month as events are updated.
