Sadly, because the forum vote picked a mech for the Champion variant that comes with an XL stock. When the price adjusts, it's a flat 25% more than the stock version, regardless of changes to the loadout.

It's the single biggest issue in pricing these things.

Voila! Too-expensive mech bundle! Now in Cataphract and Awesome varieties because we have champagne taste and a beer budget!

:(

Added Hellfire to the "what they need" listing.

OP needs a rebuild. Most of this information remains useful, but I think the state of games and mech bundles is diferent today than it was when I started this.

No rush though. The world won't end if I don't get around to doing more than updating the lists ;)

New Champions, special-ninja-delivery for the new Solaris divisions:

OSR-1V - MC 2660 - D6
ASN-101 - MC 1720 - D5
UZL-3P - MC 3840 - D7
BSW-S2 - MC 2995 - D4
MDD-C - MC 5490 - D2
RGH-1A - MC 2945 - D3
NSR-9P - MC 6300 - D1

That'll mean some more updates for the OP, at a later date.

Prepping for a major overhaul of the OP, but before that, updating the "... Could, But Don't ..." list with the 7 chassis that received heroes with the Solaris patch.

Also adding some gift store links and some Smurfy links that hadn't made it into the listing yet.

Edit,:

After updating "maybe pricing" for 7 new chassis in the "Could, But Don't" list, I noted an abnormally low price for the Bushwacker Champion (C). Normally, they add 25% to the base price of the stock loadout for the variant. In this case, I think the Champion (C) is actually cheaper than the stock version. Posted Image

Now, I'm not complaining if they did it on purpose, but I think this was more likely a mistake. I'll go back and review them all later, for thoroughness' sake.

Quick-and-dirty conversions at the conventional rate of a 25% price hike:

OSR-1V, MC 2,185*1.25 = MC 2731.25 at standard price hike
Result: listed price above is MC 71.25 lower than standard rate, appears underpriced.

ASN-101, MC 1,375*1.25 = 1,718.75
Result: listed price above is MC 1.25 higher than standard, within reasonable margin for rounding up/down.

BSW-S2, MC 3,385*1.25 = 4,231.25
Result: listed price above is MC 846.25 lower than standard, by a significant margin
--> even lower than the stock build MC price by more than a mechbays' cost.

UZL-3P, MC 3,070*1.25 = 3837.5
Result: listed price above is MC 2.5 higher than standard, but within reasonable margin for rounding up/down.

MDD-C, MC 4,390*1.25 = 5487.5
Result: listed price above is MC 2.5 higher than standard, but within reasonable margin for rounding up/down.

RGH-1A, MC 2,065*1.25 = 2581.25
Result: listed price above is MC 363.75 higher than standard, overpriced by more than a standard mechbay.

NSR-9P, MC 5,040*1.25 = 6300
Result: exaclty correct for listed price above

Hmmmm.

Added Flea (at some point, without posting about it ... oops), Incubus and Champion.

It's interesting to me that the Kit Fox and Summoner still don't have Champion (C) variant loadouts.

Them's old mechs now. Like, 2014 old. There are some more from 2014 and 2015 that still don't have them either. It's safe to say we're due for these.

Wow, excellent work on this, and excellent job keeping it up-to-date. As a former tech writer, I greatly appreciate the list of edits!

As I was browsing, it looks like the by-chassis spoilers lose some formatting. Starting with Cicada, the Subtotal line shows the HTML for underlining and not the underlining proper.

This is a great resource!

Thanks :)

These forums can get a little squirrelly sometimes, other times (and more likely) it's simply user error.

I'm overdue for the latest update(s), I'll have a look at that formatting quirk when I get under the hood. Feedback OP pls no nerf!

I'm way overdue for an overhaul of the OP. When its current state sufficiently offends my sensibilities, I'll make a move on it. :D

Edit to note: Summer has been busy. I need to plug in the Vapor Eagle, Charger/Hatamoto, and Warhammer IIC chassis. I'll do this from home where it's mess tedious than updating on mobile.

Sadly, this is the forum formatting gremlin at work.

When I try to fix it, it stubbornly resists. Finding a lasting solution's going to take more time than I want to spend right now, but (really, I mean it) thanks for the reminder.

Maybe I'll catch and slay the guilty gremlin when (if) I overhaul the OP.
