Greetings, MechWarriors!

We've seen an incredible response to our Project Phoenix pre-order program so far, and as the October 15 delivery date approaches, we're excited to announce the Saber Reinforcement Upgrade!

Starting today, players who have purchased a Project Phoenix package are invited to upgrade their purchase to include six additional Sabre Reinforcement Mechs! The exclusive Wolverine WVR-6R(P) and Griffin GRF-1N(P) come with a 30% C-Bill and 10% Loyalty boost! Both of these Phoenix variants are accompanied by two standard variants, giving a total of six Mechs within the Sabre Reinforcement Upgrade!

If you've already pre-ordered a Project Phoenix package, head over to the Project Phoenix (http://mwomercs.com/phoenix) website for more details and to upgrade your existing package with Saber Reinforcements for $30 USD.

If you haven't had a chance to grab a Project Phoenix package, you can now purchase ANY tier to unlock the ability to pre-order Saber Reinforcements Upgrade!

Sabre Reinforcement contents will be delivered December 17, 2013.

We look forward to seeing you, and your new Saber Mechs, on the battlefield!

Cheers,
The MechWarrior Online Team

So... we're going from 1 55 tonner (Kintaro) to like 4 overnight (Griffin, Wolverine, and Shadowhawk).

Let us pray the scale and hitboxes are not terrible.

NO WAY! Instantly bought, the Griffin looks SO nice! Well done!

To all those complaining: This must have been planned for a longer time, because this needed some preparation, i think this was planned and not because of the refunds.

Too many mediums coming in lately... just because you put more mechs in doesn't mean more will use mediums... also give us our crab!!!

... but business wise... I have to admit a mini kickstarter like this is a really nice piece. Hope it returns the effort compared to normal weekly sales.

I purchased the Overlord Phoenix package. This "addon" seems ill-timed as we have not received the original goods yet. No offense, but my faith only goes so far. Sitting on two promised, but not yet delivered content packages is a bit too much risk for me.

I think I will hold off until we receive the content from the Phoenix Package and I can get a good sense of what my original $80 got me...

I really hope I can feel better about the future of the game before the promotion ends. I want to throw money at the game, but it's a tough sell with the current community management.

I don't get the medium hatred. I love my Hunchbacks, my Blackjack, and my X5. Yes, you die quicker if you wander into a brawl against Heavies or Assaults. Yes, you have to adapt your play-style and be ready to retreat quicker. Is that the drawback, in your opinion?

They look good as usual from the perspective of the design, but right in the picture they're even bigger than the Shadow Hawk that's another 55 tonner or as big as the Thunderbolt, that looks to be as big as an Awesome.

As the rest of the Overlord packages, thanks but no thanks.

I went ELITE back in Founder's time to PICK one mech of my choice. This time you either force people to spend 80, or x+30 without being able to pick the desired mechs.

Why don't change packages with mid-tiers that allow you to pick what you want?

30$ -> pick 1 mech to be chosen among the locust, ort the Shadow hawk or the Thunderbolt
50$ -> pick 2 mechs freely among the four original phoenix ones (saber reinforcement is exclusive to that pack), get 1 faction medallion
70$ -> pick 3 mechs freely (saber stays an exclusive pack), get 2 faction medallions, 30 days PT.

It would be SO easy..

Really?!?! You add the two mechs EVERYONE wants... but as a separate tier? After the fact? After we've made all our purchases?

By the times I get a refund for one of the teirs and rebuy the "upgrade" the sales going to be over. >.>

Presently, I'm all like "Wtf they're gorgeous !" and at the same time "Wtf! Are you kidding us PGI ?". We're no living wallets.
Too many phoenix refunded ? Greed as before mentioned ? Meh.
