Hey PGI,

Thanks for all of the events lately, always nice to pick up a new cockpit tchotchke or some MC. However, I'm blessed with an embarrassment of riches when it comes to C-bills. I have well over a hundred million of them, which will keep me in consumables for quite some time, and that kind of dampens my enthusiasm for the upcoming Valentine's Day event. Still, don't stop with the events, especially when you feel like rewarding us with MC, camo patterns, or paint chips!


Ditto. Except, I'm pushing 300 million.
All my mechs have full cockpit swag and I'm sitting on loads of stuff I will never need/use.
I would love to see a way to turn unwanted cockpit items into wanted ones.
Say a trade-in - 3 for 1 or some such.Posted Image
Maybe a player to player swap mechanic (trades only, no MC/C-Bills/Cash)Posted Image
While I won't actively partake in this event I suspect i will still earn many of the reward through regular play.

Thanks.

Aside from going to some time zone conversion site and converting the times given to [localtime], is there any way to see which phase of the MC sale is currently active?

Having the currently active phase marked would help a lot.

While you guys may not appreciate the C-bills, I have a feeling that other new players like me do.

Grind grind, grind, do I buy this LFE/XL, change a mech build significantly, I really wanna buy X chassis, but it needs to wait.

Those X million C-bills over the past couple have really helped. Not helped my decision making in choosing bad mech Chassis, but in attaining those things that other established players might overlook(yeah, I have sold engines I have from mech packs to boost C-bills).

I'm looking to buy my first hero.

Of each tier of MC, which ones would you rank from best to worst?

Depending on the responses, I'll figure how much I'll spend.

Love this game though. Make another installment of MechCommander!!!

Urbanmech or Kit-Fox Hero
Huntsman or probably the Viper Hero
Mad-Cat MK II and MAC-IIC Hero (avoid the Mean Baby at all cost, Kaiju is subpar at best)

You guys have been getting the events dialed in pretty well. No complaints at all, but I would suggest adding a "grand prize" or such for completing all the daily events. It doesn't have to be much, for instance 2 or 3 million c-bills and a sticker or item would probably be enough to get most to want to get all of them.

he was asking about which mc bundle is best value (basic math)

As to hero mech,s k9 is best urbie I agree, but its still an urbie.
Do not buy a purifier(kitfox hero) unless you have a fetish for the chassis.
Also not impressed by hero Viper
Hero huntsman is decent because it can get 4 missile slots in torso for poptarting, other variants have to put 4 of their missle slots in arms, which is easier to lose.

best Clan hero's. Scorch dual lbx20 4 asrm6 Deathstrike dualgause 4 ermed , Srm brawler Spirit bear(NOT LURMS)
best IS hero's Muyamets , Jester , Ember , Mjolnir , Bounty Hunter, Black Widow, Sleipnir,

Today I should have easily beat the 10 Kill Assists, PGI showed in game I scored 34 Kill Assists today in 6-8 games. The event page said 0 Kill Assists scored. Really!?!?!?

Sweet. Call me when it's over. Too many trolls running around in assaults killing their teams over a couple of assists. This "lance in formation" bonus make things 10 times worse by the way...

I saw some friendly fire but more baby seal clubbing games. After I died I kept flipping through views tracking enemy movements. I kept calling out these movements to my PUG team via comms only to be told to shut the $!@#&€£ up for my trouble. My PUG team died 4 to 12. Why can we not play well together?

Is "Group Play" something specific? I played a few quick play rounds with some friends in a group, and got the first part, but got no credit toward the Group Play assists. What am I missing?

Nevermind, refreshed the page and it updated.

Hi guys, just checking I played 2 games and got 12 Kill assists. Both games I played as Group with the LFG function. I got 1 Million C-bills for Share the Love event, am I suppose to get another 1 Million C-bills for the bonus for playing as the group? Does it take a while to register cause I have not received the bonus for playing as a group yet?

Agreed. Its also really easy to lose sight of just how much money it is when you play frequently as opposed to the semi-frequency that most people play at. If you play just a couple of hours a week you often won't be able to grind up enough C-Bills to buy a higher end mech in an entire month without these rewards, let alone kit them out. An engine frequently costs more than entire battlemechs - the XL 300 costs 4.9 million C-Bills and out of the dozens of IS medium mechs there is only one that costs more than that and doesn't itself come with an XL engine. Then add onto every single mech 1.5 million extra C-Bills in the practically mandatory DHS upgrade. I just bought my first Kit Fox for the New Year's thing. And it cost over a million and a half just to add the AMS arm with ECM in case I ever want to just run that casually. Its incredibly expensive even when you do share engines.

I like the shiny cockpit doo-dads as much as the next person but half of the fun of the game is playing in new and different mechs. That is tough to do when you play for even a handful of hours a week. Its intimidating and even discouraging for anybody who isn't a veteran or hardcore player.

Yes, it updates and injects at every hour. Seems to update just about three or four minutes after the hour to be precise.
