Hi guys appreciate views/opinions.

Of the 2 Resistance Collections (both @ $56), which of the 2 do you prefer and why?

https://mwomercs.com/resistance Resistance 1, has the Panther, Enforcer, Grasshopper and Zeus.
https://mwomercs.com/resistancetwo Resistance 2, has the Wolfhound, Crab, Black Knight, Mauler.

Clan side, the most attractive pack is the Origins (@$56), has the Jenner IIC, Hunchback IIC, Orion IIC, Highlander IIC.
https://mwomercs.com/origins

Might get 1 Clan and 1 IS.

Only got the R1-Pack, I still don't know if I will get the R2 package as of now. R1 is solid, though. Not great, but also not terribly bad.

As for the Clans, the Origins package is indeed the best deal (you get 24 colours!). The Jenner is a death trap to me but the HBK, Orion and Highlander are "good" at least. You could, however, also consider getting Wave III (at least the Ebon Jag / Cauldron Born level of it), which also makes for a good CW drop deck. If you are into this, ofc.

A question for Matt...

Would upgrading an already owned mechpack to a collectors through this Cyber sale count towards eligibility for the next years top tier loyalty reward?

Thanx for your answer and thanx for the sale :)


Hi Matt :)

I would politely request an answer to this question if possible. Pretty pretty please :)

Or if anyone else knows??

Pretty sure it's active premium when bought from the store.

Regarding the IIC mechs:
Highlander: Only the C and perhaps B is worth it, imho,
Orion: Not worth,
Hunchback: Very worth,
Jenner: Not worth anymore (they got too big, making them too squishy). A Jenner with ECM could be very good...

Thanks guys, yeah I was quite hesitant about the Jenner, but I have read good things about the Orion IIC and its asymmetric design and AC20 builds. The pre-order bonuses are nice too but I think the $24 off is even more attractive! The Jenner IIC was actually the very first mech I piloted in MWO, as it's a trial mech.

I did look at Clans Wave 3 but 2 issues: it's $84 not $56 and it had mechs I already owned, whereas the 3 packs I'm looking at (Origins, Resistance 1/2) all had mechs I didn't own.

Funnily though I was asking for views about the R1/R2 packs and all 3 of u replied about the Origins which I already decided I'd get Posted Image Posted Image

EDIT: I looked at the individual mechs in R1 and R2, and preliminary feel is the R2 mechs seem better, with the Mauler, Black Knight and Crab being heavier on tonnage and often popular choices on the battlefield. As a brawling player, I favour mechs with armour/survivability.

The Jenner IIC is a walking CT. It's the fastest clan light you can get tho. The missile variant is okay-ish, but the others are basically converted IS Jenners with worse hitboxes.

The Hunchback IIC is solid in pretty much every variant. All have JJs and high mounted hardpoints. Pretty fast, pretty agile, pretty hard hitting, maybe a little on the fragile side because of the lack of armor quirks, but you can't have it all...

The Orion IIC is actually pretty decent. It's a solid brawler and pretty hard hitting even with the max engine rating. You can transform it into a missile boat if you so desire, but meh... brawlers are more fun.

The Highlander IIC is one of those clan assaults that are hard for me to find suitable loadouts. Sure, you can do the lurm thing, but lurm assaults are... bad... very bad... just... don't do it. ATMs seem to work pretty decent. The brawling thing might work, it just doesn't for me tho.

I do agree on the Resistance packs. I like the 2 package more. Mauler is a very solid assault, the Black Knight is an okay laser vomit heavy, the Crab... is... just refusing to die and the Wolfhound is a pretty decent light.

The fact you get 36 colours and 18 cockpit items from the 6 factions from buying Resistance Collections, is pretty nice. The fact that R2 has 3 tanky mechs is a strong reason why I'm leaning towards R2 over R1.

I wonder if there will ever be a sale on mastery bundles? They're already reasonable but I can get 3 mechs and some premium for 14 bucks in this sale but to get the catapult pack (for example) 28 bucks.

The Game was fun but pumping in more at US prices just for the love of mechs and I do, I can't bring myself to do it. I love the game and have for a long time. It doesn't make business sense why push away the fan loyal base...

Actually from my excel, if you bought the $99.95 MC bundle, and bought the ingame mastery bundle using that MC, the bundle price at dollar value will be at the price point you're asking for?

For example, the Stalker bundle is 8785 MC. Based on the $99.95 MC bundle, this translates to $27.01 dollars, which is cheaper than the Mastery Pack on the website at $35, and both have the same content.

The Catapult pack is $28, but based on the above, it's likely cheaper by a few dollars if you went the MC route.

Mastery packs are already at 50% off for every item in the pack btw, even outside of sale events.

PGI - thank you. Best deals are yet to come I hope in the C-Bill discounts and the other sales before the Holidays. I think this shows how much you are listening to your fan base and responding. I hope it brings back some to the game and introduces it to others.
