PS don't buy a Raven-4X unless you want to test the still weak MGs and die.

2 MGs, 1 ERlarge, and an SRM6 w/ artemis and jump jets is a pretty nice build. Also MGs are getting a buff on the 21st

A raven with machine guns that don't do anything, a cent with useless missiles, and an awesome.

Good sale.

pack ac/5 some lasers and srms. That was a fun build. I sold the mech a month ago though because of the stupid ballistics delay and lead. I tihnkI might rebuy it just to try playing it again. Nothing wrong with the 2x or 4x, you just gatta think about what to put on it and how to play it instead of tapdancing around in the 3L with the cloak of invincibility .

Come May 21st... I hope to get the 4x again and run ac/5 and MG, and a medium laser or two, or a medium laser and streaks., and of course, BAP.

I'm not sure what you're on about. SRMs are still pretty good. LRMs, however...

While there are plenty of things to complain about in this game, complaining about the sales is probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. Entitled, much?

Sorry I didn't know the 4X was the best light mech. While it can work, its not great at all.

The 2X is wrong, its 100% worthless unless it packs LRMs.

This is certainly not helping anybody. Remember the first trail mech sale had only 10% MC off. This is much much better. The cent and the Awesome are not bad. No sympathy for ravens personally.

No, just having my ideas clear, no one on their sane mind would waste MC on those mechs, less alone with the current PPC meta.
Try to put yourself in the place of a new player, would you buy any of those?...
Everybody seems to know the answer, you on the other part...

And yet, several posts in this very thread show that folks do like at least one of the mechs in this sale. How'bout this, you stop assuming you know what everyone else likes or thinks, and we won't make any decisions for you? mmmkay?

I have mastered every mech in the game and the 9A is one of the best mechs in the game, but they need to fix SRMs for it to work properly

Whatever happened to if you dont like something you just dont buy it? When did it become vogue to open your mouth and spew just for the sake of doing so.

I'd have bought the current Trial Dragon at half price. But it's not on sale.

Funny, that.

I believe the timing roughly correlates with the popularisation of the Internet.

Well, you're completely wrong about the Centurion, so there's that. The 8Q is the dedicated PPC boat, so someone who pilots Awesomes will probably enjoy those too, since PPCs are so good right now.

The 4X is pretty weak at the moment, but with machine gun buffs around the corner, maybe it might be better in the future? I suspect they're going to adjust the engine caps for the Ravens as well, since they'd made adjustments for other mechs, so it'll very likely be better in the future.

I just find it surprising that your very first post in the forums is to complain about a damn sale and how nobody is going to buy these mechs. They've been doing Trial by Fire sales for a while now. They probably generate income. If they didn't, they'd have tried something else.
