Introducing the Irresistible Resistance Deal

We're rolling out an even bigger reward for any players who own the Top-Tier Collections from both the Resistance 1 and Resistance 2 pre-order programs!

If you purchase or own both the Resistance 1 Wrath Collection and the Resistance 2 Mauler Collection before May 31st at 11:59:59 PM PDT (June 1st 6:59:59 UTC), you will automatically qualify for an additional 4th Variant of each Resistance 1 'Mech.

If you already own the Resistance 1 Wrath Pack and the Resistance 2 Mauler Pack, you already qualify!

Also, if you haven't picked up your Resistance 2 Collection yet, don't forget that the Resistance 2 Early Adopter Reward eligibility window is still open until May 31st at 11:59:59 PM PDT (June 1st 6:59:59 UTC).


The additional Variants you will receive are:

  • Zeus - ZEU-5S + MechBay
  • Grasshopper - GHR-5P + MechBay
  • Enforcer - ENF-4P + MechBay
  • Panther - PNT-10P + MechBay

These additional Variants will be released into eligible accounts on June 2nd.

Check out the details at the bottom of this post for more info on these Variants.


Important Info:

  • Purchasing any Resistance 2 Collection will qualify you for the Resistance 2 Early Adopter Rewards, but you'll need the Mauler and Wrath Top-Tier Collections from Resistance 1 and Resistance 2 if you want to qualify for this Irresistible Resistance Deal promotion
  • "Top-Tier" Collections are defined as:
    • Resistance 1: Wrath Pack
    • Resistance 2: Mauler Pack
  • A la carte purchases do not qualify as Collection purchases, and are not eligible for this promotion
  • The additional Resistance 1 Variants will be available for purchase in-game with MC and/or C-Bills at a later date.
  • Depending on your transaction method, processing delays may result in a final processing time that falls after the stated promotion deadline. To help minimize the potential impact on Support services we request that you try to compensate for any processing time that may be associated with your payment method to help ensure your eligibility for the Irresistible Resistance Promotion.

I was half expecting something like this a while ago, except for a new mech, instead of new variants...

Hmm, I am glad that many top-tier pruchasers are getting rewarded. I do hope the (P) PGI variants will serve to only enhance the mech selection, not to further push up the power creep.

We know what the quirks have become since their inception.

New mechs are reserved for other packs.... money man...money!

new variants are just stats edit and copy pasta


don't get me wrong though... its a nice gesture by PGI.... the new zeus variant is nice.

Very nice that these "bonus" variants are already with double heat sinks and endo'ed where it makes sense. You may suck me into buying this next package yet.

4 meds+AC20, with an XL engine (the AC20 is in the arm).

I dunno, it's powercreep man (take a look at the Grasshopper+Zeus variants).

The only one that doesn't qualify is the Panther...

I assume you get 4 mechbays with the 4 new variants, though it isn't specifically mentioned?

So happy to see an AC20 for the Enforcer. It really needs it so I can sword and board like a Centurion with a more narrow profile.
Confused by the Panther, but I put money on some solid AC2 Quirks to make it like Machine Gun AC2's. Basically you will be a glass cannon. Fire the AC2's until ammo is out then die.

Zeus looks like a combination of two variants, I like the additional missile slots, since 3 x SRM4 is pretty potent, combine that with an LBX10 in the other arm and some Wub and you can probably eat up other chassis pretty quick.

All in all, I like it.

Thanks PGI!

But NO JUMP JETS!! That hurts... i would almost rather have an extra ML and a Gauss with JJs.

It is interesting, but not better.

The Grasshopper is nice though.

And hey man, people are either going to claim power creep or complain about how new mechs aren't good (See all threads complaining about the Resistance 1 mechs). Whatever they do they get haters...

Sorry but no.
I don't like this pressure to get everything early, and my budget does not allow it. I like the incremental aspect of packages because it feels like a subscription. Ditching that much in one take isn't something I feel right, sorry.

Well, it is what it is.

I missed the part where the Enforcer would be ground bound, but it's more like an XL capable Hunchback, w/o the Hunch (and the AC20 quirks).

I'd still like to know where the 3rd energy hardpoint on the Grasshopper would be located though.

I am stuck between Panther and Wolfhound myself. Probably going for a Wolfhound for no ammunition worries.
