Release Dates and Availability Information

Q: What are the release dates for the new Clan IIC Hero ‘Mechs?
All Clan IIC Hero ‘Mechs will be delivered to eligible Pilots (according to their purchases) starting in the September 19th patch. Any purchases of a Clan IIC Hero after that date will be injected into player accounts every hour, on the hour.

Q: What is the release date for the Standing Cockpit Item?
Purchasers of a Clan IIC Hero will receive their associated Cockpit Flash Bang Standing Item upon delivery of their 'Mech(s), starting September 19th 2017.

Q: When will the Clan IIC Hero variants be available for purchase in-game with MC?
March 6th 2018.

Q: What is the incentive to purchase these Clan IIC Heroes now through the website, rather than waiting for their release for purchase with MC?
The price of each Clan IIC Hero represents a significant savings compared to their eventual cost for direct purchase using MC. The inclusion of 1 Mech Bay and Standing Cockpit Item with each Clan IIC Hero further increases the value of a Clan IIC Hero purchase compared to their eventual MC purchase prices.
While these Clan IIC Heroes will become available for purchase with MC on March 6th 2018, the inherent value provided from purchasing a Clan IIC Hero through the website makes it the superior avenue for acquiring these 'Mechs.

Q: What will the MC prices be for these Clan IIC Hero 'Mechs when they release for purchase with MC on March 6th 2018?
As per the standard MC pricing structure, these Clan IIC Hero 'Mechs will be priced at the following:

• Jenner IIC JR7-IIC-FY “Fury": 2625 MC
• Hunchback IIC HBK-IIC-DW “Deathwish”: 3750 MC
• Orion IIC ON1-IIC-SK “Sköll": 5625 MC
• Highlander IIC HGN-IIC-KP “Keeper": 6750 MC

Q: Someone Gifted me a Clan IIC Hero, which I’ve redeemed successfully through the Redeem Portal. When will I receive my Clan Hero?
Delivery of items received from a Clan IIC Hero Gift Code will also begin starting September 19th 2017.

Q: Are there any Early Adopter Rewards associated with these Clan IIC Hero 'Mechs?

Q: Has a sale end date been announced?
The Clan IIC Heroes should be available for purchase indefinitely.

General Questions

Q: How were the names of these Hero 'Mechs determined?
Hero 'Mech names are inspired either by the characteristics and actions of an associated 'Hero' Pilot or Unit in BattleTech/MechWarrior lore, by their custom Hero Pattern, or by a combination of those two components.

Q: Are these Clan IIC Heroes OmniMechs or BattleMechs?
The Clan IIC 'Mechs are standard BattleMechs. They do not use the OmniPod system.

Q: Can the Clan IIC Hero Packs be Gifted to others? I.E. Can I buy this for a friend?
Yes! Each Clan IIC Hero Pack will be available for purchase as Gift Codes through the MechWarrior Online Gift Store.

Q: Do I need empty Mech Bays in preparation for receiving my 'Mechs?
Each Pack comes with 1 Mech Bay to house your newly acquired 'Mech.

Q: Can I apply Standard and Faction Patterns to these Hero 'Mechs?

Q: If I remove the unique Hero Pattern from a Clan Hero 'Mech, can I re-apply it to that 'Mech later?
Yes, and there would be no cost in re-applying it. However, you can only apply that Hero Pattern to the Hero variant! You cannot apply the Hero Pattern to any other variants of that Chassis!

Q: Can I apply custom Colors to the unlocked Color channels of these Hero Patterns?

Q: Can I sell back a Hero 'Mech in-game for C-Bills?
Yes, though we do not recommend doing so.

Q: If I sell a Hero 'Mech, can I re-purchase it at a later date?
You can sell your Hero 'Mechs at any time, but you will only be able to re-acquire them when they become available for purchase with MC.

Q: What guarantees can be made about the balance of these Mechs?
Only that we will try to provide as fair an experience for all players, Clans and Inner Sphere alike. This may mean "nerfing" or "buffing" some weapons or adding Quirks to the 'Mechs at a later date.

Q: What are the Hardpoint details?
Hardpoints and other 'Mech details can be found towards the bottom of the Clan IIC Hero page.

Q: What are the Quirk details?
Any Quirks for these Clan Hero 'Mechs will be determined closer to the ship date.

Payment options vary by country. Please click the Contact Us button at the bottom of the payment portal or contact Piranha Games support directly at billing@mwomercs.com if you have a specific payment question.

Q: Where is the payment option I previously used?
Due to a transition of our payment services, several payment options are still being freshly contracted out to PGI. We hope to make them available again as soon as possible. Please click the Contact Us button at the bottom of the payment portal, or contact Piranha Games support directly at billing@mwomercs.com if you would like to inquire about a missing payment option.

Q: The payment portal looks different than it used to. Who or what is Xsolla?
Xsolla is a global payment processor with a specific focus on providing payment infrastructures for videogame developers and publishers. Their customer support network is unparalleled, and we have been extremely happy with their performance since our recent transition.

Q: Why can't I seem to process a successful transaction using PayPal Credit?

Q: Am I able to get a refund for my purchase, if necessary?
Refunds are granted without issue in cases where none of the content has yet been delivered.
