LOL!

For a moment there, I almost believed that your big sale on your very first Launch Day was only going to be a discount camo on a recently released Mech.

You sly trolls, you!

:rolleyes:

I was definitely hoping for a real launch sale... but hey, cheap stuff is cheap stuff. Better than nothing.

Really? Twitpics of balloon Ravens, tshirts, and this sale. These are the first words out of PGI on launch day? For "just another patch" we don't even have the patch announcement yet.

EDIT: the patch announcement was perhaps delayed... it showed up very shortly after I put this message up.

Uh. Guys? That's... that's not *it*, is it? I mean, for today. That's not all there is. Right?

Oh my. This reinforces only the sad feeling.

If you are not able to put in new (material) content, what's about an epic sale at least?
Confidence in the future of this company is shakened even more.

Man they weren't kidding when they said launch was going to be just another day. They really have just given up. This is a far cry from what they said launch would be like a year ago.


infinite sadness

Completely disregarding that this is launch day, this sale still is lame. I mean, Orion mechs only? What are you trying to get people to put down MC so they'll get the patterns?

Hey guys welcome to our game! Quick, give PGI 5 dollars for a skin that only goes on one of your mechs! Want to put it somewhere else? They can do that for just 5 dollars! With all those cbills you're making, it really shouldn't matter as you're trapped in whatever newbie mech you have for quite some time

Meh you could do more than just making all trial mechs as champions..

you could enable 1 full day of free premium time for everyone

you could create a challenge where you could unlock a pattern/camo for a chassis of choice once completed

you could do.. a cr4pload of ideas and you didn't. I'll give a spin to the Orions, then oblivion will accompany me until the cbill Shadowhawk will come. Sad launch, indeed.

Personally, I've had a small glitter of hope what you'll surprise us with something. Frankly, this is the bottom of all bottoms. :P

Dear PGI, check this out, this would be my launch day:

1. 1 day of premium time for all, we're celebrating "Launch Day" of our favorite game after all;

2. During the duration of "Launch Day" (that only 24 hours) next things would be available:
2.1. MC sale
2.2. ALL hero Mechs 30% off MC price
2.3. ALL champion Mechs 30% off MC price
2.4. ALL CB Mechs 30% off MC price
2.5. ALL camos 50% off MC price
2.6. ALL colors 50% off MC price
2.7. ALL premium time options lowered by x% (you pick the number);

3. Log in during 24 hours of "Launch Day" and play only ONE match and you'll get a shiny medallion for cockpit that will remind you on the "Launch Day" of your favorite game;
4. etc,etc,etc...

Now, wouldn't that be one hell of a "Launch Day" of our favorite game ?

And guess what - you would be earning. For that day alone, I'm 100% positive that people would disregard poor patch in overall (yet alone patch in "Launch Day"!), lack of promised major things, poor communication with community, and all those other bad things that I forgot about, if you just did SOMETHING to show respect to those who still push this game forward.

You may be said that "Launch Day" is just another normal day and that may be true content-wise (because you haven't delivered any), but it shouldn't be like that at least celebration-wise. I'm sure people who can't attend to your launch party would still remember that there was a launch of their favorite game and that they've also been a part of that launch in another way.

But I guess easiest thing is just not do anything...
