Greetings, MechWarriors!

Hitting with more power than 1.21 gigawatts, here comes the Catalytic Converter Sale! We've started by taking one number (the price) and lowering it on all non-faction hanging items (50% off non-faction medallion hanging items!) Then it kicked into high gear, and: double GXP conversion (50 XP for 1 )! Then we went into overdrive, meaning that two of our most popular heroes - the Ilya Muromets and Firebrand - are 30% off the price!

But hurry, this massive power conversion only lasts until September 17 (10am PDT)!

Cheers, The MechWarrior Online Team

Firebrand and Ilya on sale. I can see 'em getting snatched up pretty quick.

And an MC sale would be nice but I'm not holding my breath.

Title says September 19th but article says 17th.... just saying.

For anyone who wants the murdering power of 3xUAC5 nows the time. You'll have a few days of superpowered AC goodness before they nerf the UAC (to acceptable levels) with a longer cooldown rate.

Massive, MASSIVE car terminology fail. A Catalytic converter is not a power/performance device, it's part of the emissions control system. In fact, it ROBS cars of power, since it's job is to take waste fumes being output by the engine, and pump them back in. It's like breathing with a scarf around your face, it gets harder because the scarf not only traps the carbon dioxide you exhale, but makes you breath a bit of it back in.

In other words, not having a catalytic converter is a power boost.
So much typical PGI here.

Hmmm, I've been toying with the idea of buying a Firebrand. But Jagers don't seem to last too long these days...?

That's not really correct. The EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve is upstream of the catalytic converter. The catalytic converters are all straight flow through devices to minimize gas turbulence.

I may buy a Firebrand, but where's my Misery sale?

Nice, the Firebrand will be my last Hero-Mech, and I buy it because i like the HP.
With the current rewards, Heros (and Premium) are unfortunately not attractive for me.
But, at least, 3400 MC for you. :D

Gonna be picking up the Firebrand since I've been waiting months for it to go on sale.

With a savings of 1400mc that is 4 mechbays plus a single camo usage. Can't go wrong with that!

sorry to burst your bubble but catalytic pertain to catalyst wich is an agent who *accelerates* a reaction ...

It's chemistry not car terminology

I love it when they do an XP conversion sale. I have a bunch of mastered mechs that I play all the time with thousands of XP tied up in them. These sales always let me clean house at a discount. It comes with the downside of having to dump in another 25k MC, but y'know how it is. The girlfriend always tisks at me when I buy the expensive coffee too.

I'm also looking at those heroes. I like the idea of a Jagermech, but every time I shoot at one, they seem mighty squishy. Same can be said for the Cataphract for that matter. I wonder if those are just bad builds or if they really are very squishy mechs...

{Scrap}. Someone was paying attention when I mentioned in a different thread that I wanted a Firebrand.

*pulls out wallet*

EDIT: Heh. I'm amused at what words trigger the {scrap} filter.
