That's something I would definitely look forward to! I'll be watching for it. :D

Describe this Best ever C-Bill sale. I will see what I can do.

50% off all mech's?

Pardon my poking my nose in, but I still remember what happened when the 'MLX-G' hit 50% off. There was a big storm behind the scenes due to other people wrongfully 'taking advantage' of the situation. How about...
  • 50% Off (MC) Hero Mechs
  • 50% Off (C-Bill) Assault Mechs
  • 45% Off (C-Bill) Heavy Mechs
  • 40% Off (C-Bill) Medium Mechs
  • 35% Off (C-Bill) Light Mechs
  • ???% Off (MC) "(C)"-SubVariant(Champion/Community) Mechs
    (Yeah, I don't have an idea what would be appropriate there! I just have this bad feeling about 50% Off on those...)
...in order to prevent that happening again? I bet some (C-Bill) Variants that were released happened to be originally calculated around never having a 50% Off on them. :wacko:

Dang... and I just purchased 10 (C-Bill) Mechs with the Current 35% Off Sale. *facedesk* -_-

I don't suppose somebody could run a 'Behind The Scenes'-type Refund for Everyone of the (C-Bill) Difference between this Sale, versus a Sale with Greater (C-Bill) Savings? :mellow:

Matt/PGI - thanks for the part of the seasons sales. Almost 67 Million C-Bills spent today. About 150 Million in reserve. Looking for the ones I want in the future sales.

Thanks for the sales, Matt! Posted Image I've been eating my nails up to the elbows waiting for this! Looking forward to the rest of the sales. Any hint you could possibly slip? Posted Image

Btw, It's physically impossible to have a 35% sale on some mechs and then a week later a 50% one on the SAME ones, correct? You know what I mean... Posted Image

Many thanks again!

Did you buy any when these were both 50% off less than a month ago during the Black Friday sale?

I missed out on the Hero Mech Sale, as well as the Mech Bay Sale, back during Black Friday. At the time, Thanksgiving and Family put a complete block on trying to take time to look through and find stuff I wanted. Being near a computer at that time was short-lived at best. :(

It's from the Cougar backward to the Viper by release date.

For sure the "best ever cbill sale on mechs" would include all the mechs currently available in game for Cbills! Then you could add 30-35% off mastery packs, 50% off pattern unlocks (the permanent ones)...and anything else you may think will entice us to spend some Christmas money on getting all the MWO things...and please not more "select items" (go big or go home!). Thanks for the sale Matt...as a New Years "resolution" maybe PGI's marketing department could look at the long outdated 3-pack mechpack format and redesign it so we can buy the variants we want without having to buy 3 because we haven't had a need for 3 since the new skill tree launched. Thanks again and Happy Holidays PGI!

I kind of regret buying the uziel. I bought the 2S and sold it an hour later and bought the 6P. The 6P is loaded with 6 meds and 5 jj.l and was finally able to score a good 650 damage from a match, but the regret is it just feels like a cicada or my Griffin 5N.

I skipped buying the roughneck because that weapon variety is all over the place. It's has ballistic, energy and missle hard points which makes weapon synergy difficult. At the same time, I expect to keep the the hero roughneck on December 27.

Currently I own the best mech of each weight class that are meta builds for each weapon type like lazer vomit, dakka, and srm builds. This might explain why I am regretting now.

Having the Mech bay sale come after the Mech sale sort of comes off as trolling your customers

Thanks for the sale!

What I find most amazing was that the very latest mechs were also on sale, such as cougar and uziel.

Well Played!

The has definitely been the season of giving with uber easy to achieve advent event and the 27th Dec special!

Enjoying myself and looking forward to Solaris.

I thought the 35 million C-Bills I spent was a lot, guess I'm gonna need to buy more mechs to catch up. I'd like to see a Summoner on sale personally. A Highlander IIC would also be nice. Mechs I'd like to try but don't want to pay full price in case I despise them.

Howabout a '% off" in-mechbay coupon, so you could for example get 50% off on an XL engine, or 40% off converting a mech to double heat sinks? Might make it more tempting to buy expensive things like that 400XL, or maybe coupons discounting weapons, such as "buy 2 heavy large lasers get 1 free". Stuff like that.

I am still looking for a way to get the Hellbringer Invasion variant for less than $55-$60 dollars for that one Mech. I thought the last cash sale was going to be it but there was only a discount on the Tiers so it would have still cost me $60. The ala carte was not discounted and was $55. I already have 6 Hellbringers so I do not want 3 more for $55. I just want the special Invasion version. If you did a 50% off the ala carte or even 35% I would buy it and just sell the two I do not want.


Wishful thinking.

I agree, thanks PGI for some easy challenges- it's less stressful juggling these advent ones against life which constantly encroaches, especially around this time of year!
