I was curious as to how many other players were in the same boat. Have most of you already decided to pull the trigger (or not), or are you also waiting for more info before buying?
Consider this: if you get Veteran founder level you haven't committed to any specific mech (or if you go for Elite right off, you can change the mech choice up until August 7th). Once in the Founder program, you have a good chance of getting a beta invite before the 7th... so you could then try the different mechs and decide which you want to go with
On the other hand, if you don't get a Founder pack then you will most likely not get into beta before the 7th, and would lose out on the chance to get a Founders pack at all. That would make me a sad panda
