C'mon. First weekend after launch, and this is it? Not exactly inspiring to the new audience that may be playing this game. Maybe something along the line of:

*) Choose 2 cockpit decorations available for c-bill purchase for the weekend only
*) All champion mechs 30% off
*) One-time camo uses avialable for c-bills for the weekend only (limit 1 purchase per camo per account)

I dunno. Something a little more creative.

This is one sorry excuse for a sale. They should have had a HUGE one to serve as an apology for having squat on launch day. But this is all you want to do? Help encourage the 9 or whatever people who were on the fence to buy 3 specific variants of chassis... for MC ONLY still? The rest is too trivial to even be worth mentioning.

PR? Who dat?

Off-topic, but what's this about HBKs? I fly 2 regularly and I have no issue there.

Yes it may have been the "launch" on Tuesday, but it's not like you could not have played the game for over a year before.

Why no colors on discount, come on. Please

If there's one thing they excel at, it certainly isn't creativity in sales. I'm sure a lot of trolls, goons, and whiners will pick up the rest on that note.

I'd like to see MC go on sale because current MC prices are stupidly high. Connecting premium time to MC isn't exactly the best method, either, but that's a whole different thread for another day.

I'm generally pretty enthusiastic AND a sucker for sales, but, seriously, this is the first sale after launch? Take two facepalms and call me in the morning. Launch would have been the perfect reason for a good sale (MC, hero mechs, free light mech for each account, something!) and would have perhaps eased the reaction to the non-launch. This is so stunningly anemic it seems like they're trying to prove launch meant nothing.

A sale on premium time is welcome, though after the CBill nerf it kind of sticks in my craw that I'd only be paying to reinstate the level of CBills we used to earn.

So, let me think about it and get back to you.

Considering how long it took PGI to actually notice that Flamers do nothing, I really wonder how long it's gonna take them to notice that the reason new players don't buy cockpit items is because you can't even see them with the default FOV.

A grabdeal on two of the worst mechs in the game, worst variant of a good mech, and premium time to regain the old, non-painful C-bill income levels from back when fun was allowed and MWO economy wasn't space salt mines.

Allow me to quote, "my thimble runneth over".
