Lengendary Package was disappointing from a value stand point....


People saying this just arent realizing the value of the mechs. If you buy legendary you will have 4 prime variant mechs which means you already have the start on all 4 mech trees they are a part of.

The lifetime C-Bill booster on all 4 mechs means when your grinding C-Bills you will never not have a mech out of combat you can jump in with.

In short the values are like this

10$ a month on premium accounts and around 15$ value at least on the Founders Mech's which is 170$ value for the 120$

If the mech's dont mean this much to you then perhaps Elite is a better option for you.

Is there a possibility to upgrade your Founders purchase during the Founders period? Say from Veteran to Elite/Legendary or Elite to Legendary?

Congrats on the Founder's launch!

Regarding the garage spaces, might you clarify how many garage slots a normal account starts with, how many a Premium account, and do the Founder's Mechs count against those totals? Thanks!

The in game credit for the Legendary package. Will you be using the players real name or in game name?

You have previously stated that new Beta Testers will be taken from the "pool of founders". Will this be done in order of Legendary>Elite>Veteran? Or will this not be taken into account?

So far I know I have an option to buy 4 recolored mechs.

The question remains: How large is the bonus? It is in your best interest to state this (which should've been stated prior to the offer's launch) to prevent later forum outrage either way, Had I known, I would have, I would have never style. We're already trusting you preordering a product most of us never played, we should at least know what we'll get.

Is there a delay in acquiring the forum badges for the Founders package? I have mine purchased but it isn't showing up.

Do Founders get a starter 'mech as well as the founder's 'mech? If this is the case do Legendary Founders start with 5 'mechs implying they have 5 spaces in their garage?

What exactly is a "premium account" and what does it get you?


This should be very clear from all the information this morning...a premium account means you will receive 50% more C-Bills and 50% more XP per match.

Yes that is the other good news that they are the Prime Variants they not only take up that position in the Mech Trees for you to work on but they remain fully customizable in the Mechlab.
being these are the PRIME variants, does this mean that with time we can turn them into other variants provided we have the weapons or ability to do so? Example... the PRIME Atlas AS7-D... can it be upgraded to the Atlas AS7-K without having to buy a AS7-K (none founders Atlas)

is there a compelling reason to not just pick the heaviest tank..er mech. This coming from a WoT player where higher weight premium tanks are WAY better than lower weight ones...

Sorry to be a royal pain in the ***, but the last i read was the announcement telling us EU players that we were ok to buy founders, and if we wanted to at a later date we can move our stuff to the local region.

I must admit i rushed through the payment to get it done, before the hoards of people hit and the servers ground to a halt. I've bought the legendary pack and just wanted to double check that ill have my 4 mechs and the ability to play on the usa servers come aug 7th. Cheers very much :)

Russ I saw a question asked earlier that we start with a lance worth of garage slots for our mechs, with these four mechs of the legendary pack taking up four will be affored extra slots as part of the legendary package or will they be need to purchased as extra, or will they simply be unavailable.

Thank you for your time, and congratulations on what looks like (from all the tags popping up) a very successful first day of sales.

I'm pretty sure each variant must be bought seperately as they have different hard points. This is also how the levelling works - each variant must be levelled to progress. Hopefully Russ can confirm this.
