I'll wait for the C-bill Cyclops to re-buy the Q variant, which i accidentally sold in-place of the Z.

Bit of a goof there.
Anyway, i assume Cyclops for C-bills is next month, right?

Ahhhh, I've been waiting for the Viper :)

Saved up 80mill with the help with Premium time, time to go nuts.

I hope the redundant Ferret will be quirked adequately to keep it useful, it proved worthy of my mechbays in FW.

Is that a joke? The IFR is quite a bit better than the VPR.

Ouch. The 10-Q is the only one I really like.

I'd also say, that it's the only one sufficiently different from the Atlas, which i also own.

But yeah, i'll wait for them to come out for C-bills, pick up the Q and get rid of the Z. I really enjoyed running it with a bunch of SRM-6s.

Me too. It's very satisfying. The Sleipnir is good, too, but doesn't tickle me the way the 10-Q does. The others, meh.

Highly recommend both mechchassi. Though preferably wait for the c-bill release of the Cyclops. It got alot of interesting variants. Nice command mech overall with that sensor boost from the Tacticon 2000 Posted Image

Best use of the Tacticon is for 6 x LRM15 2 x MedL on the 10Q mated with advanced sensor range, target decay, LRM Range, LRM cooldown modules - for the kick of it.

Would I overheat instantly?

I am looking forward to December.

I predict a Missile Heavy Christmas grab bag event.

Just had a play with the Viper in smurphies and... no. Ill wait for a 40 clan mech that isnt terrible, lol (http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Griffin_IIC ? would buy.) Only even vaguely decent looking build i came up with can't be replicated on an arctic cheetah for 10 tons less and with ECM was 4xMPL high mounted on the A with stripped arms and 2 extra DHS.. not worth the cbills for me.

Im sure it FLIES with 8x class IV JJs on a 40 ton chassis, but this game isnt called orbital insertion.

Think I'll wait for a Mechbay and/or mech sale. Still have to get some Phoenix Hawks too. Hope there are some nice sales around Christmas. Posted Image

Structure quirks for the Viper's arms would be nice...like people have been asking for for 3 months now...

I'm sure that all of us Pilots will manage. :P

Same would be useful for the Side Torsos and Arms of the Phoenix Hawk, I hear? :o


Anyway, I would love to be checking these things out via the In-Game Store right now. However, due to some Active Premium Time that hasn't triggered yet, I'm forced to stay offline until I either wish to use it or the next Event that I'm trying to do comes along. Personally, I wish I could swap that Premium Time from the most recent Event's Loot Bags for a matching equivalent of Mech Bays. As memory serves, I racked up 5 Days of Premium Time from those Loot Bags, so 4 Mech Bays should be an approximately equal and equivalent exchange. Only question is whether or not PGI has the will and/or ability to do an exchange like that, which I unfortunately doubt. Those chunks of Active Premium Time are a real slap in the face, as they don't pause while you're offline, and they don't stay Banked until you would really wish and/or need to use them. :unsure:

*I believe I can fly, I believe I can touch the sky… * - Vipers are a fun ride quick with great JJ’s.

It’s a pity that fun doesn’t translate into more effective… oh well fun is why I play

Gonna grab some c-variant arms and run 8 x cERSL

I think you're crazy. Last I heard, that Mech can't do ECM. :(

Lol. Perhaps and no it can't. I ran one with 7 when it initially dropped. Not saying it's brilliant but then the whole chassis is average or below average.... so nothing new there.

8xcERSL simply sounds fun to me (would have tried 10x if I had bought the hero - imagine that the heat would have been awful though).

Feel free to pilot it how you like :)

Only question I have... is Why no hero omnipods? One of my M omni's was accidentally sold a while back, and I was looking forward to re-buying it. (its the 'worthless' one, the right torso, zero hardpoints)

Just doesn't seem right, especially with how easy it is do do while you're hanger-clearing, that you can't re-buy those omnis. Are there plans to release the M omnipods later? Or is it just gonna be a 'own the hero if you want them, and only ever as many as hero's you have' which... is just dumb. Sure, you could fit a 10x ERSL build with hero omni's... but you'd have really crappy cooling.

Wait, what? Already?? Didn't the Cyclops only come out like three weeks ago?! Where did the time go???

View PostPurple Pixel Dust, on 01 November 2016 - 05:15 PM, said:

Probably because this is the "available for c-bills" announcement for the Viper, and the hero pods are MC-only, so I'm assuming those were covered in the "available for MC" announcement before?

EDIT: Ok checked it out in the mechlab and I see what you mean :(
