I just think the price of 312,500 cb per color is damn high for a paint job ... and simple primary colors are not the basic ...

Cbills are obtained in-game.

if you're going to complain about something, at least have it be something relevant.

Cbill let you by things that can also be bought with MC if you don't have enough which would be the case if it costs you nearly a million of them to paint your mech in basic colors.

First of all, since your a legendary founder, then a million cbills is nothing to you. I'm a free player with an awesome and its certainly nothing to me.
Secondly, basic colours are cbill only, its for the more advanced stuff that you can pay MC for. (Advanced colours and skins)

Also, its spelled "buy".

How does my legendary status correlate with the amount of Cbills I find meaningful?

I'm sorry... have you not played the game?
Premium status and founder mechs. They, by default, allow you to get more cbills. Theirs literally no argument against that which isn't a flat out lie.

Well see, it might be news to you but Founders get Premium Time, which adds to their income, and Founder's Mechs, which get them 25% bonus Cbills. So...you just tossed $120 at PGI with no idea what you were buying? :blink:

I like the layout of the system, it works. I also like that there are Cbill options. But i feel that it this system cheats those who purchase the paint schemes. I would rather pay $5 to own a color for a mech. (only that mech, Maybe all varients of said mech if PGI feels generous) and be able to use it as much as i want, as opposed to paying $1 every time i want to use it. I won't want to spend real money on something i can't keep, because i feel that its not worth it to invest in something i can lose on a whim. Most other F2P games have a purchase system like this. Hell, i myself would rather just pay $10 for the color and be able to put it on any mech whenever i want as opposed to this. It just seems like this would put potential buyers like myself out of the mood to buy.

Again, im not saying they shouldn't charge for it, i just feel like i should be able to keep it. I would even be willing to pay real money if, after the MC purchase, i can use cbills if i want to use that color again. I feel like thats fair, what do you guys think?

Also. Is it me or does b****'in betty talk too slow?

Yeah.... we spend MC on something we should keep it.

the paint system feels very polished. Im just not sure if purchased stuff stays purcahsed. for example if i get phraken scheme for my mech will it stay there if i want to switch to defaut and back? (0 MC for phraken after purchase?)

i rather have a palette box where it has all available colors than the scheme we have now with the camo choices. i might wait for that option to come out before i change any color on my mechs

Thats what i want to know. If i get to keep it afterwards i would love this system. But my intuition tells me its not the case.

I don't know if this was intended but it seems you can't color mechs with a solid color? There is always the default green showing making it worthless to even change the color. It's like a poor spray paint job over the original color. I hope this gets changed because right now I won't be paying to change the colors unless I can get it to be the full color.
