Origins IIC Pack Breakdown On Pg 3 TLDR - pre ordering can (approximately) save between a third and a seventh of the price that separates would be.

Some notes:
  • Values are listed as 'non sale prices' and are accurate as of 14/07/2015
  • Source sheet is now up at http://bit.ly/dollarpermech
  • If you spot a mistake I will fix it, when I have time. I'll fix it quicker if you point it out nicely. Same goes for suggestions and criticisms of the date and how it is presented.
  • Feel free to copy, repost, reuse, re-purpose, redesign, and do anything you want to any of the this.
  • House Steiner can still go **** themselves.

The Random Info Box!!

The Gift Store Membership:
7 days at $6 works out at $0.86 per day, $0.03 below the MC3000 price
30 days at $12 works out at $0.40 per day, straight between the MC3000 and MC6500 price
180 days at $58 works out at $0.32 per day, $0.01 off the MC12000 price
360 days at $104 works out at $0.29 per day, straight between MC6500 and MC12000 price

The CBill per MC "Value" Non Champion/Hero Mechs: (as of several months ago)
The full chart may follow if folks are interested (post below) but the main info is:
*The average CBill to MC value is 2496.21 Cbills Per MC
*The most CBill efficient standard mech is the Quickdraw QKD-4G at 2402.51
*The most average is the Battlemaster BLR-1D at 2496.18,
*The least CBill efficient standard mech is the Battlemaster BLR-1S at 2507.82

The Cbills Packs Or Premium Time MC To Cbills Efficiency Calculator

Posted Image
  • If you estimate that you average daily Cbill take in would be higher than the number listed for the duration of your premium time purchase then it is a ​more efficient MC return to buy premium time.
  • If you estimate that you average daily Cbill take in would be lower than the number listed for the duration of your premium time purchase then it is ​more efficient MC return to buy CBill packs.
  • So, for example, if you are pulling 270,000 CBills a day with 7 days premium it's more efficient than the 1,100,000 CBills and 2,400,00 Cbills pack but 20,179 Cbills away from being more efficient than buying the 6,500,000 Cbills pack.
(Same info as on page 2, slightly worse title)

The Obsessive Compulsive Collector Tariff!!
Current cost of all Hero Mechs at cheapest MC: $544.23
Current cost of all the Champion Mechs at cheapest MC: $278.46

(Ignore the faction tag for a sec Raggedyman) ;-)

This is great info. Thank you a lot. It makes me realise how easy it could be to get the J enners I have been eyeing. Christ, I spent 5$ at McD's today on a Wrap... and I could have had a Jenner instead...

PGI would be CRAZY not to sticky this for you... and give you a mechbay for your time and effort! (Seriously. .. give the guy a mech bay as he just jumped the sales of MC by 5-10%)

Thanks for the thanks. No clue how to get it stickied/if PGI want it stickied but I'll be updating it in line with the updates (for a while at least)+ so it should be spotted frequently enough.

Reminds me, always buy items on sale. Including MC, that was on sale last December.


One other way is to buy gaming cards on sale that you can use to buy MC (if possible while MC is on sale for double the bonus).



(Cheerleader in Gridiron was worth not listening to at least the first part of the advise.)

Don't have those in the UK, if you can give me the prices I'll look into adding them in.

Nice work... certainly cheaper than buying a movie ticket and pop/popcorn. PGI should thank you for doing this, honestly.

Grabbed my next Jenner! Also grabbed the Misery on sale. :-) It's not hard to sell myself on the one day I get to really sit down and play each week being worth buying 1$ (250 Mc) of premium time for that day. :-)

Prices adjusted for the 20% sale (ending May 6PM at 10am PDT), as it was a quick redo and it had a major impact on everything.

SCRUBBED BECAUSE VERY OUT OF DATE

Also remember the Kit Fox KFX-Prime that is purchasable by C-Bills OR MC is not the KFX-Prime(i) (Invasion) Variant which has a 30% C-Bill bonus, Custom 2 Tone Paintjob and Custom Geometry.
