Right, because I can't put this build on the Thunderbolt 5S. A new mech is fun and all, just not seeing how this one is going to be different from the 5S and PGI has been pretty careful about releasing mechs with same hardpoints...unless this is a 5s with one fewer missile hardpoint in which case my response is...meh.

Free champion, insane sales (and mechbays!?) and now free unreleased mech? Something is going on...
The clans are not coming this year guys.

Yeah, I'm startin to get worried too. I usually avoid the "OMG THIS WILL BE DEAD IN A YEAR" but I'm getting concerned that there's somethin else goin on.

Something else like the ability to actually offer sales and promotions like this dynamically without having to take down the server to do it?

Thunderbolts aren't my best but going to get one of these for sure. PGI is doing a much better job of making their customer's happy. Keep this up and more people will be joining the game.

Trying to fill the gap and keep spirits up/match wait times down before the Clan packages hit IMO, which makes me wonder if we end up with another heavy discount Hero sale or another challenge offering free stuff next month too...

I'm sure a 6 flamer tbolt will be a fun way to kill some time.


EDIT: Aw shucks, this came up again, guess I'll play a Timberwolf this weekend as well

Last one (Feb) was a medium, this one (April) is a heavy.. ..does that mean then that in June we will get an Assault? :lol:

God, I sure hope so. Its pretty easy to forget the slooow relase schedule or the balancing problems when the devs give you a free mech (this one being, what, worth 6M with DHS?) AND a mech bay for doing pretty much nothing every two months ^^. Very nice to see considering how extremly grindy most major F2P games (like WoT, WT or Planetscape 2) have become and some of the dev teams (WT coming to mind) force you to grind for 3 hours every day for 2-3 weeks just to get your free "christmas present" :lol:. Great to see PGI handing out valuable stuff for free, I'm sure they'll get alot of financial love back for that.

That variant comes with DHS already if anyone can find a decent build for it.

Another free mech + bay weekend - Sweet!

A new Thunderbolt - Sweet x2! :lol:

Colors - Sweet x3!

Buckaneer - If it were a sale on individual uses, I'd be all over it, alas...

AAAAHHHHH!!!!!
Title made me think a whole new Mech was coming. :P
Thought about T-bolts for a while but not found the right builds for me yet.
I will aim for this though, for some strange reason I saw this on Smurfy's yet thought the 9S was always available.

Stranger, you seem familiar. :P Not seen you around here for months.

A 5S with 1 less Missile and 2 more Energy plus dual AMS. I note at Smurfy's it has 10 degrees less torso rotation than the other 3.

I concur, this is the kind of promotions that get me excited and willing to try diving back into the game.

Great job. Looking forward to the thunerbolt and I'll be spending credits on more mech bays to master it as well as GXP conversion so it's less grindy. Wise move PGI.
