Greetings MechWarriors!

We heard you like sales! We also heard you like Hunchbacks, JagerMechs, and Highlanders! So how to combine these things... hmm... how about a sale on all Cicadas? No that doesn't work.. how about '50% off the cost of the Hunchback 4G, Jagermech S, and Highlander 732?' Sound better? Sadly it does. So that means we're doing it - yep, 50% off the cost of those variants. The 'no side torsos means no weapons right? Nope my headlaser is still firing hahaha' Hunchback 4G? Now 740 . The four AC2 Ja- I mean, the 'Success' 6-S JagerMech? 1042 . How about the 'ohgodlrmsandppcsruuuuun!' Highlander 732? 1807 .

So if you're looking for a great Mech, here is 50% off three fantastic variants.

Details:

  • Hunchback HBK-4G reg. 1480 NOW 740
  • Jagermech JM6-S reg. 2085 NOW 1042
  • Highlander HGN-732 reg. 3615 NOW 1807

From:

Friday May 31st 10:00am PDT TO Tuesday June 4th 10:00am PDT

We'll see you on the battlefield!

:(

DID YOU LEARN NOTHING!? from the employee of the month sale?? Okay yes this one is considerably better, I actually approve somewhat but still believe hero mech sales or bust.

When you do this every Friday people start to get sale fatigue.

Also, I will not be buying MC until PGI actually balances and demonstrates some actual game development progress beyond new mechs and maps.

Well that's a shame it's only three standard variants, no camos, no colors, no premium time sales.

After scarring people with the stock Jagermech-S, did you really expect them to buy it despite the sale?

Here's a hint: Putting bad stock trial mechs up for use and making them suffer during their brief testing does not lead to future sales. It's really that simple.

You would have to cut the price of a Jagermech-S by 75 to 80% before you'd convince someone to buy it.

I love that 'mech. It doesn't have enough ammo, though.

So ... PGI asking for charity again? Might as well just write PGI a check, then deduct it on my Taxes ... I would get more benefit from the deduction, then from the purchased items.

Hero Mech Sale
MC Sale
Premium Time Sale
GXP Conversion Sale
75% off Color Sales
75% off Cammo Sales

That's about the list of sales that value minded buyers want ... all else? charity.

The mech is never the problem... it's the stock mech that would make you rethink playing this game altogether.

Yeesh, enough with the QQ. There will plenty of sales for other stuff, sure for many of us a Trial Mech sale isn't of interest, but there are probably plenty of new players who would be very happy for this sale.
