1,125 MC, if you only use 3 sale paints and unlockable camo.

Virus camo looks pretty vivid. With the right mixture of colors.

Why is this sale ultra neat?


If you look closely at some of the chassis that the (C) are built, many carry XL engine. So if you want to get into some XL engines very cheap...

Looking at you Mr. KTO18 with the XL 300 for 1120 MC, and the DRG 5N with a XL 300 for 1275 MC.


That is really, really cheap... for the best engine in the game. If you have a couple extra thousand MC, its not a bad use of 1100 MC...save those CBILLS for upgrades.

You can even sell the chassis after you strip it, so that you get a Million or two Cbills, a XL300 engine for the mere cost of roughly $5-6 dollars if you have bought the 12,500 MC or less if you bought the biggest package.

Wait so if I buy a permanent camo does that mean I can use it on any mech? What's the difference between one shot and permanent?

One shot: single use on single mech.
Unlock: unlimited on/off on all applicable variants of a single chassis (e.g. all non-Ember Firestarters)

Oh PGI... I once bought 3 camo's from you for my Jagers, I thought that permanent meant that they were unlocked for all of my 'mechs, just like the colors! Then I found out that I couldn't apply those camo patterns, that I spent real $ on, to the rest of my 'mechs?!

Needless to say, I felt a little cheated at the time. Especially since it didn't warn me that it was for that chassis ONLY. I decided to never get another camo pattern again, not unless you make it unlockable for every 'mech. You really are shooting yourselves in the foot because you are driving away your potential customers by nickle and diming us.

I'd rather have more C-bills than XP (I have too much XP as it is). It's a nice gesture, but that change wouldn't entice me at all.

At least, it's an improvement... since 10% was woefully insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

We've permanently increased the XP bonus on all Champion 'Mechs to 30%

Interesting. Will this apply to the JR7-D(S) as well?
