Greetings MechWarriors!

Look up into the stars; what do you see? The correct answer is "Orion" - if you said anything else, scold yourself. Which Orions are coming? Why, here's a list: Orion ON1-K, ON1-M, ON1-V, ON1-VA! There's a nice mix of possibilities there, and we look forward to seeing you in these, the most Kerensky of Mechs! Who else will free Terra from the usurper, Stefan Amaris?

We'll see you on the battlefield (after the servers come back up, as they will be going down for a very short time at 10am PDT)

Cheers, The MechWarrior Online Team

I'd never usually do this, but I feel I deserve to treat myself for the next 4 days until I have to part with my beast of a gaming system for a considerable amount of time.

Wanna high five whoever came up with the idea for early MC access to new 'mechs! ON1-VA, you will be mine!

I splurged on the Protector and now I'm going to buy ONE for MC...the ON1-VA. I spend too much money on this game!

I think I'll get one to go with my Protector... but which? I'm thinking ON1-K....

Edit: You know whats funny? I can Fit an AC/20 with 35 shots and four Medium Lasers on this ON1-k, 75 tons. But on my BJ-1, I have an AC/20, 35 shots, three Medium Lasers, AND jump jets and Its a 45 ton 'Mech... plus It goes 93kph as opposed to 64k. Guess I'll have to play with this one for a while :|

This is all in your mind. In Bizarro world they pushed out the production by one week and are holding mechs hostage. I mean, its done... so... its a nice carrot I guess. I thought I wouldn't be able to hold back when the Victors came out...but I can!

Just noticed something odd: Sarna lists the ON1-K and ON1-M as mounting SRM4s, but the images of those variants in the battlemech section show them mounting SRM6s. Is Sarna incorrect, or did they change the stock loadouts slightly? :)

I know what you mean: the 'mechs C-Bill release could be this patch, and the MC could be last patch, and so on. It's more of just the timing for me, as I won't be able to purchase it for C-Bills. I'm a 'special' case so to speak aha.

But yeah, I'm grateful anyway!

Actually, this is one of the things that I think they do well. Letting MC buyers have the first chance to get the mechs before being available to the rest of the people is harmless and provides some extra income for PGI. I'll not be buying it but I applaud the idea

Can Orion's safely mount an XL engine? It looks like the "missile" pods on the shoulder are actually part of the side torso, meaning easy to blow off.

Looking forward to the V, for sure.

Sirs;

Yes, another MC variant of another mech....in short, no new maps, no new features....but we get another chance to pay for something while we have no idea how effective it will be in game because the Buffs and Nerfs aren't finished.

BTW it looks like they decided to copy MWO business model - in recent 0.8.8 patch released today they introduced a ton of bugs and nerfed everything to hell (especially my beloved Germans) with people losing some valuable in-game assets.
