7 hero mechs for US$30, that's an amazing deal!

I do want to know though, if there are any or going to be any pre-order bonuses? Or, what's the difference going to be between a pre-order and a standard purchase?

Looks pretty sweet. Are those Solaris Mechs going to be available for MC or individual purchase down the road?

I'd like confirmation that these heroes can be used in QP, not just Solaris. Pretty sure that's the case.

The IS heroes are very close to standard loadouts, although with +30% c-bills. Annoyingly, many of them still feature 3025 tech and will require up-front C-bill investment to be competitive. Too many XL engines, Std heat sinks, etc. When you're paying $$ for a mech, it should at least be close to current tech.

None of the loadouts/hardpoints appear to be more than minor variations for what's already existing, and only 1 of them's an Clantech mech.

Yah earlier in this thread they addressed that these mechs would indeed be available in all game modes.

Those mechs are supposed to be lore-friendly mechs, from 2 different Solaris 7 novels as mentioned in the news post. Hence it makes sense that the mechs are mostly IS mechs. Clanners frowned upon Solaris 7 until they formed the Zellbrigen Stables after the Clan tradition of Zellbrigen.

Atlas looks pretty f-ing good if it gets armor quirks, otherwise it'll be outright inferior. But of it does... Oh the wallets shall bleed.

Great deal if you will use the mechs. Not sure if its for me though since I already have similar mechs that I rarely use.
Only exception for me is the Urbie. But its 1B short....

You know, I was complaining a month ago that some of the heroes just ignored the purpose of the Mech and were off-the-wall - IE the Crab & Annihilator - and thus would never be used.

So I guess the question is "Do I play these chassis?"
Urbie - Yes
Mad Dog - Yes
Griffin - only as a MRM60-boat. I tried a ton of builds on my Griffin 2N before settling on that.
Firestarter - Yes, but 6 MLas/2 Flamer. Not sure that 4mgs will make up for lost damage of 4 MLas
Rifleman - Yes, but I have Legendkiller
Atlas - Nope, and I stay away from assault mechs. They are too low on the maneuverability chart to be fun.
Banshee - Same, but I think it's a bit less gluey

So... not sure. Assault mechs are generally so low on maneuverability (slow accel, thus slow turn rate, etc.) that I do not play them at all after suffering through 100+ matches early on in my Highlander.

7 mechs for 30 is not bad. But if there is no preorder bonus I will wait till it is released.


Pretty much this.

Really, my only complaint about this is that 5 out of the 7 mechs are little more than stock versions with different skins. I suppose that's why its only 30 dollars, but a Mad Dog with CT energy and a Banshee that can do 64.8, jump, and still have a wide variety of hardpoints is tempting....

Wow, 30$ for 7 Hero Mechs is a very great deal, man, i'm tempted.
All Mechs are good, except the Atlas.
Can we have some really unique hardpoints for it? I mean, it looks like a mix of existing Atlases, i can do the same loadout with one of the six I own.
Can we have, at least, an energy HP in the head?
I'm not saying give us the AS7-K2 Atlas Jedra, but something really different, thank you :)

+1 for Monocle of doom Atlas head energy hardpoint!

Side note: As a newer player, 7 mechs(Even if they are "almost" stock loadout) for that price is pretty damn good. Add in that they are +30% Cb? And a mixed chassis pack? Hard to see the downsides here.

Even the art is good. Banshee is the weakest but still not bad. Am I the only one that first read the urbie as "bug city blues"?

Scarabus (light), Hatchetman (medium), Axman (heavy) and Berserker (assault) would be an excellent Solaris pack*. Oh well, maybe in Solaris 2.0?

*with melee, of course.

Are... Are you from Portugal?This mech is what the damn La Malinche should've been. A jumping Banshee.

Also, we need people to start ASKING FOR THE ATLAS EYE LASER FOR THE AS7-KR. NOW. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT.
