Greetings MechWarriors,

A new collection of four weight class Performance Packs are now available through Steam!
These new Performance Packs have replaced the originals, which are no longer available for purchase.
As with our original Performance Packs these new Packs have been put together to act as starter packs for new players coming to MWO through the first time through Steam, or for existing players who wish to acquire these special C-Bill boosted variants and the additional content provided with each Pack!

These Performance Packs are only available through Steam, and as with our original Performance Packs, these new Performance Packs are utilizing a Regional Pricing structure instead of straight USD-to-foreign currency exchange rates.

2.5 million C-Bills






This pack features 2 Medium 'Mechs each with 30% C-Bill boost and custom load outs built for performance.

Clan: Warhawk WHK-C [S]

The Assault 'Mech Performance Pack also contains:

2 'Mech Bays

Those are really underwhelming. With an intro sale and a SDR-5K(S), I was hoping to get the light pack, but a Panther and MLX that CB bonus variants already exist for? No thanks.

Oh sure.... ONE hour after I uninstall steam (not that I used it anyway, but I was tired of the steam valve running in the background whenever the computer booted up)... I already have two of the colors unlocked and I've never had any interest in crabs or grasshoppers. I think I'll wait for a discount sale on them.

i would have considered a kgc + direwolf for a 50-70% discount, but a warhawk and a zeus, that would never arouse me.
have to say that i think, except for the mediums and maybe the heavy, the packs are not as good as previous packages, mechwise Posted Image
paint jobs look pretty neat tho!

I use the crimson red and AJ light orange with ivory black or modro for many of my hot flame camo'ed mechs.

Really? You think that new players should learn this game in a Mist Lynx. Is there a hidden joke or something that has escaped me?

Such a letdown! I'm an IS pilot mostly, 4/4 misses for me.

And in all honesty, I'd love to get a Spider, sounds like an instant deal!
Mediums: CN9-D is popular(and NCIX is out, people may want the rest), BJ-1/3(since some have BJ-2). Even a Cicada, like the fancy 3M, why not any of these?
Heavies: aint Marauder or Catpult more popular demand?
Assaults: maybe Battlemaster?

Colours: look nearly idential to those in the first packs. And again you get no new colours purchasing more than 1 type of these packs.
I get that that's how money made, but ain't it already a robbery? Packs cost like entire new games on that same Steam platform. At least give us some more stuff, variety. And diehard fans - don't even dare to argue on that!

I hope you consider.
If not changing, maybe add another set of packs. Maybe make a poll to see what's on demand.
Could add IS/Clan only deals.
Could add more different bundles, like those you have in your own store(several versions of a mech + cockpit stuff, colours, decals etc).
Something. Because this current deal is no deal for me.

You can change the settings in steam to stop it auto-starting upon booting up your computer you know :P

Well, these are certainly no competition for the value of the first packs...

These packs are absolutely abysmal. You all really need to consider asking the community what mechs to choose for these packs from now on.

Split Tech Base again :(

I have the Resistance Panther 10K, but wouldn't mind getting C-bill bonus versions of the Crab, Grasshopper and Zeus variants offered... but I voting with my wallet, I will not spend money on Clan 'Mechs.

Best troll package deal involves a Mist Lynx... statistically shown to be worst Light in the game.

Now you're trying to peddle that? Good luck.

Keep doubling down on that until some major requirkening.

Imagine if there was a Kodiak3 / Mauler MX90 performance pack...

That would be too performy. Not an option. Let's do a Zeus instead. And throw in a Mist Lynx, too, for fun.

Are you trying to make new players quit the game?

Because if I were a new player and I paid $30 for a MLX and a PNT, I'd quit the game very shortly after figuring out how much those mechs suck.

Well, I am happy to see new packs available...but the choices in mechs, really, this was the best you all could come up with? I would have thought the feedback from the original performance packs announcements would have resonated with someone. Its not just the choice of mechs that were made in these new packs that is troublesome, but it is also that (like other have said) there are no IS only and Clan only options (which would make more sense for new players, specially if you actually want to promote...dare I say...faction warfare). I think you need to take this one back to the drawing board before you finalize these packs for the next 12 months
