The skeptical person in me thinks that this might be a precursor to them changing MC for Hero Mechs to Cash for Hero Mechs the same way they did in World of Tanks... I hope not. Either way get them while the getting is good.

For those who have both, do you like the Ilya or the Firebrand better and why? If you don't have both, which of those are you looking to get and why?

Thanks!

As mentioned by Recon, they are both great mechs
- with Ilya having several 3x ballistic builds: I favor 3LBAC on mine - 3UAC is also popular, 3guass has a 45 point alpha strike, which is devestating.... 2AC5 1AC20.... the variations are near endless.
- Having said that I like my Firebrand at least as much - I got it for one build, and have not experimented much with others: The Rifleman 2AC5 2LL 2ML - saving my Cbills for a 3rd Jager so I can get it mastered, cause it is already a beast. :P

It is? I can't find a build I'm in love with.

Very, very tempting....I only have 3000 MC though...that Dragon Slayer or Ilya...damn.

I'd say the DS, except the non-champion versions are generally better. And that's from someone who's had a DS since it was released. I actually earn more money in the 9B on average than the DS- and, arguably the 9S is a better mech still.

I'm enjoying this distraction from the UI. Thanks for the sales, PGI.

Hope the servers stay up, lol. Would hate for this to be the Hail Mary before bankruptcy.

Sorry for the negative vibes...something just seems a little off.

It really depends on whether you like cannons or energy. You get more cannons with a Muromets. A tiny bit more armor too as a max. But the Muromets only has high energy points. The arms are waist-high and that feels like miles below the cockpit.

Meanwhile the Firebrand has really high mounted cannons and energy -- great for peeking over hills and cliffs. Its also got some belly guns too.

Of the two, Muromets is more combat ready right out of the box with a loadout that can survive the fact it has standard heatsinks. The Firebrand's gonna suffer with its default loadout even though it comes with double heatsinks. It's just too hot and the lore-friendly starting armor!

I'm all excited to buy a Dragon Slayer when I realize I'll have to go to Smurphy's to figure out if it can handle an AC/20 in the right arm... or, for that matter, what equipment it has to begin with. Beyond that, I'd also need the website or Smurphy's to determine what/where the hard points are. Then the realization kicks in that I'll have to reconfigure it in the new UI 2.0 environment, which has proven such a pain in the @ss that I gave up on my Cataphract tinkering and stuck with my original load out. Geez... I don't think I can even minimize MW:O while I check out the page and Smurphy's... I'll need to log out... what to do... what to do?

I poke fun at PGI, tongue firmly planted within cheek, but I still must take advantage of that 50% off discount. Thanks PGI... but could you please prioritize some of those points I made in my kidding-rant? :P


I know, right? I bought the DS and twice now while trying to tweak the loadout the server has disconnected. I think I'm going to run it stock, lol.

the smell of desperation a new UI allowing sales without patching they must really be hurting a for profit company. We didnt even get sales like this during xmas UI 1.0/UI1.5

saw you had few minor mistakes, no worries i corrected em for you.

Luckily im all out of spending money now, cause as angry as MWO makes me the recent changes in hawken make me rage just as much so im all out of mecha games that don't make me angry. All I need is for STO to switch to subscription only and 7DaysToDie never reach alpha 7 then i'll have nothing left to give the human race but the evil eye....lots of the evil eye.

Thanks for the sales. Well played too... tempting pilots who were returning to see how the game evolved with UI 2.0 by offering some sweet deals. # of players online most likely is at a high point due to the patch, and I would hazard there will be a perceivable increase in hero mechs over the weekend.

Ilya Muromets and Firebrand were on sale December 14th; I know because I bought them. Now here we are 7 weeks later and they are each 20% cheaper than I bought them for...

Good job PGI; even when you put things on sale you screw your customers over. What is the point of putting identical items on sale so close together if you aren't going to use the same discount?
