Who would buy a Kodiak or a Night Gyr after you molested them? And with actual RL dollaridoos/blood diamonds from Sierra Leone? That's like paying someone to pull out your nails.

You missed me, about a few threads ago... Not like I particularly care about who got the first slot, but I just had THAT particular luck... LOL :P

THIS, why would someone bother buying a KDK after they got screw by the engine desync

I may actually end up getting the cyclops or roughneck. I know you'll get flak one way or another but I can dig this!

I love the sale idea and your graphic - but I would have no idea how to drive either of those fancy things!

Edit: dang, I do need a mech bundle or two...

I wanted to buy a spirit bear add on since I have the standard pack.
but... after you gutted all the kodiaks because a certain build on a KDK-3 was good, I'm not finding a single reason to buy it now.

spirit bears are a very rare sight now, and the ones i do see are usually LRM/ATM boats. it used to be one of my favorite mechs, but now it's just absolute junk.

Yeah, the Hero isn't worth the money anymore. Crippled a brawler thanks to engine/agility decoupling. Not worth even a cent coin. It was fun in the past but now? Forget it.

Please PGI, if you're going to ask players for more money by purchasing Kodiaks, do something about the Spirit Bear.

Really. The Spirit Bear. I cannot believe that all the statistics you guys are gathering for balance purposes, show that the SB -- a mech that we purchase with real money - is actually performing on the level that it should be. It's a once-agile brawler that now moves like a sloth, and a heavy-*** MASC that after your mobility changes barely does anything.

What incentive do I have to purchase hero mechs or mechpacks when you so casually invalidate ones that I've already purchased?

That's why it's on sale. And why the Night Gyr and Roughneck are on sale next week. It's the poor sellers that they have to drop the price on, obviously.

And the irony here is that post-nerf the Kodiak 3 still performs, and well, while the Sloth-Bear is even more challenging/frustrating to play.

I still perform well with my Spirit Bear; though the engine desync annoys me immensely. Playing it as an SRM brawler is still viable if you position wisely.

The problem is, they went from quite possibly THE BEST SRM brawler at 100 tonnes to one of the most situational. Spirit Bear used to be able to outspeed it's CQC rivals in the Atlas, and it's torso movement and firepower meant that for a 100-tonner; running a C-XL400 meant that it could DANCE. Now it really only works as a surprise attacker and flanker, and is pretty much reliant on skill and a good serve of luck to get that going. I'd love to see it get some much-needed attention.

Who now needs a bear? Previously, he was relevant in the FP, after the nerf of the clan weapons, the pilots came up with how to revive him. And after that, the deck is cut to 240 tons. And for a quick game the same Gladiator is times better. By the way, for a long time that I did not see the bears in the FP. And less and less in a fast game. For Dair Wolf, I forgot that he exists.

even calling it situational is being pretty generous. i struggle to think of a situation in which i would prefer it over any other mech that can run a similar loadout. it's not tanky, it has very poor agility, and MASC takes so long to get up to full speed that its distinction of being the fastest assault brawler means practically nothing.

I really enjoy the Cyclops! I'd pick up the Slepnir if I didn't own it already! I'll have to think about the reinforcement pack for the ECM 11-P, although the Stalker 3FP has been my go-to ECM assault recently. The 11-A-DC looks like it could run a mini-atlas setup that would be fun!
