Hope everyone is having a great end of the year! We're thankful to have such an amazing community and wish you all the best as we usher in another year of MPQ!

Our office is closed from Dec 22nd - Jan 2nd, but I'll still be around to monitor things in case of emergencies. To get a head start on the new year, please find the What's New Jan 2024 edition with some slight new adjustments to the formatting.

Please note:

  • Ran out of time to create an image, but that'll get updated once I'm back in the office in January to update this thread.
  • 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 can change without notice.

Cheers,
S0kun
