Greetings MechWarriors!

We are proud to unveil a new feature on our website!
From your Profile Page, found at https://mwomercs.com/profile:
You will now be able to Activate 30 Days of Premium Time at a time from your Banked Premium Time.

Example:

This button will be available if you have at least 720 Hours of Banked Premium Time.
If you have less than 30 Days of Premium Time in your bank: You can activate all remaining Banked Premium Time in-game by clicking the Activate Button beside the Premium Time clock in the Mechlab/Main-Menu.

Please be advised that only Premium Time acquired through Pre-Orders is automatically banked.
All other Premium Time purchased in-game with MC, given through gift codes, or awarded through Challenges/Events will be automatically activated upon redemption.

Premium Time provides you with a 50% boost on all C-Bill and XP rewards while activated. This bonus stacks with other promotional reward boosts, including time-sensitive events and 'Mech Hero/Champion bonuses. In a Private match, Premium Time allows you to modify many game parameters, including the Map, Tonnage Rules, Even Teams, Match Time and View Mode.

Once activated, Premium Time is unstoppable!

An excellent step forward. Now, we need the ability to buy it banked to start with, as I've had to kick my preorder-banked Premium Time on already. Spending a stupid-large amount of money on a year of Premium time to get the proper return on dollar investment would be a lot more valuable, and likely to happen, if it was something one could dole out in month-sized chunks. Instead of just buying month-sized chunks in the first place and paying twice what you would if you went and derp-bought a year of it in one go.

Nevertheless, still an excellent step forward. Keep going, MWO - one day your pricing scheme may even be fair :P

excellent. thanks PGI for this.

30 days is very reasonable. Don't let anyone tell you that it's not good enough, because people will talk you down to the very second for activation if you let them.

Please note, this is both literal and metaphorical! :)
We cannot pause or stop it once activated without breaking the space-time continuum.
Thanks for your understanding.

It is only literal because you won't share the keys to the TARDIS :P

PGI this is a wonderful step in the right direction! Thank you very much for listening to us.

A month seems fair since most games with a pricing program, such as a subscription, are based on a month. Would I like to have it based on a week by week basis, sure, who doesn't like more control over their own account? But this seems like we might be asking too much of you.

Thanks again!

Thanks guys, this is an awesome feature. It would be even cooler if it was in chunks of 7 days but this is better than nothing :)

Too late to save 5 of the 6 months I activated a while back, but oh well. Not going to complain about being able to save what I'm getting from wave 2 and use it when I'm actually playing the game somewhat actively instead of dropping it all at once.
