So will there be announcements as you run out of packs? I really want to get one (esp. one of the top two tiers!) but my paycheck's prolly not gonna arrive for four weeks and I don't think I can justify spending half my money on this... until my check arrives, then I'll be spending on PGI.

Why such the steep jump in pricing from $60 to $120...?

I was hoping to pilot a Centurion. Will "founder" quality mechs (with the bonus to C-Bills) be available for purchase later, or will players forever be limited to these four "founder" mechs if they want the bonus?

Do the bonuses for a premium account and a founder mech stack? 50% premium + 25% mech = 75% bonus?

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.


I'm a little confused on your pricing? $10 a month = $30 since we only get three months / $15 per 'Mech*4 = 60, that's $90...where did we get $170 from? Not complaining im glad to be a Legendary member. just curious...

For each founder mech you buy does it come with its own garage slot? I dont want to have to spend my C-bills I got with the package on garagse slots right away because I am legendary, seems only fair the founders mechs come with garage slots.

Does the C-bill booster on the Founder's Mech extend to the variants, or is it only for the prime variant?

Whatt do we get to buy with the In game currency specifically? Are founders mechs customizable?

A question about the "Redeem code"-Tab:
When will Founders receive this code?
If this was stated somewhere, ignore the question. ;-)

Because I have faith in this game, I went all out on my purchase. What I want to know is can we get an exact loadout list for each of the founders mechs? The email said that they are each special varients. In the case of the Hunchback, its the HBK-4G. According to my research, this mech has an AC10, 2x medium pulse lasers and a small laser if I am understanding it correctly. Is this an accurate loadout? Will we be able to customize the founders mechs in the mechlab? As an old school hunchback player, I am not very keen on giving up my AC20. If I decide I don't like the 4G loadout will I be able to rebuild my founders hunchback into a more standard build with an AC20?

Other people have asked this earlier, but I have yet to see a reply.

In case you get beta access and like a different mech much better, can you change founder mech before aug 7?

In the announcement mail it said: premium account will become active at the start of open beta.
Does this mean, with the date of open beta the premium account will become active AUTOMATICALLY, or does this just mean that ONCE open beta starts one has the option to activate the included premium account whenever one sees fit?

I ask because, if one is on long vacation or abroad on business and has no time/opportunity to play when open beta starts then one would lose a lot of valuable premium account time...

[color="#000000"]Thanks, payment just went through. I have been waiting for this game since EA cancelled 3025 beta. Hopefully the support shown by the MechWarrior community raises some eyebrows and allows this game to go further than originally thought.[/color]

As asked earlier, but to me it is important, so I re... ahm ... quest... ungh:
- Will there be an option to "upgrade" once purchase to legendary? Yeah, there is, just found it, great that you thought about that!
- also, how long will we probably be able to buy (and maybe "upgrade" if possible)
- will there be a chance to change ones mind with the mech choice?

And a freebe...
Where do I see which 'mech I choose --- lets say I was in a bit of a, ahm, hurry and I fear I just clicked something randomly whilset I threw money at my monitor...
Good luck and congrats to launch of the operation
take care and thx.
Daniel

You also get $80 worth of ingame currency, there's your $170. :-)
