Is there a limit to how many on these bonuses you can get?

I didn't see any, so looks like open season on earning 100+ Million C-Bills at the end of the event.

Nevermind, read it too quick and didn't see the limit. Should be put or highlighted in another area for convenience.

Max you can get is 14 million C-Bills for the first part.

Feels like a pay to win challenge to me, especially considering the steam versions of mechs, many of which I already own the regular versions of.

I somehow expect the waiting times for the Heavy queue to be above 45% during that event...

Well, time to get out my marauders.

And I do put money into this game, but I would also expect the challenges to be more open to everyone. Not just only mechs that just came out and are only purchasable by MC or in this case the steam only versions. It just feels like the past couple of challenges, this is the way they are setup.

I am kinda annoyed with this. I bought the stupid warhammer package but got the hero instead of the champion. Kinda get screwed. But I think that the warhammer itself was a waste of money. If I could return it, I would. Now this challenge comes out and slaps me in the face again. PGI: "Thanks for the money sucka! Here is another way to screw you ROFL."

Ha! Buy the new packages you filthy casual!

Appearently, spending 50 bucks to buy hero mechs isn't as much appreciated as spending bucks to get a IIC or steam package.

Am i a second rate customer? Sure does look like it.
Do i go and buy underperforming performance packages? Hell no.
Do i buy "soon to be nerfed when IIC 2 packages" are coming out IIC packages? Hell no too.

So be like me, accept it, be happy about the "you got something so shut up" 1mil for filthy casual 2nd rate customers.

Agree with Raidflex,

It is sad that F2P players only get 1/15 of total possible interest in this event. It is ok for me that there are additional part for contributors, but I think more fair share would be better here. Like 1 Mil for each 10 KMDD up to max of 10Mil total for all players and leave paid mechs as is.

PS: my share here will be at least 9/14 and I am still concidering IIC pack for 4 additional mechs if I will find them worth it.
