Patrons are nice but what do we need to do / archive to be concidered to be sponsored?

I like Solaris but it dosn't realy earn me any money as I play it for the fun and I doubt that I ever will be high in rank so do I even have a chance to make any seriouse money in solaris or will I be forced to do quickplay to get some cbills?

It would be kinda sad when only the top 10 has any chance for playing this in a good way (income wise) as I like the fast way the matches run and how I seam to be more and more matched with people of similar skill it becomes even better.

I got into 15th place in Division 1 on day 1 and only got one sponsor. I'm thinking that the ranking you have with your patron may also have some effect on it, but no confirmations.

Besides that they pay practically nothing. I think it was sub 1000 cbills that the sponsor gave. I'm really thinking you have to level up your patron a lot if you want good gains.

Would be nice from PGI do post something about how the get them and what multipiers we can expect. Same for patron.
Could be incentive to become better, knowing that it will be rewarded to put in the effort.

I have one sponser in division 2. Appearently only W/L ratio matters, since i only have 7 games in total in that division.

I'm a bit surprised to see I can pick a different Patron for each Division... seems a bit silly. Shouldn't I just pick one, and all my Solaris winnings count toward that Patron?

I just got a sponsor (Meers Skobel), Div 1. Elo about 1650. Rank about 160. Not sure if that matters.
It appears to give me:
+2% Cbills
+1% XP
+2% ACC.

I assume those percentages get better as you rank up.

but T4 is a PUG ranking. That is how the PUG teams you are on are skilled. Winning being the most important skill measure.

This is no different than NASCAR
Just because you have a Patron or Sponsor in the Camping World Truck Series doesn't mean they carry over to the Monster Energy Series or Xfinity Series. (Yes, I just "rednecked" MWO by bringing up NASCAR...)

Hmmmmm..... no... there aren't any camping 'Mechs. Sorry, your logic doesn't work here.

By splitting the 'Mechs into such Divisions in the first place, I think they've really acknowledged their poor game balance with finality. They've used their already poor game balance as an excuse to "provide more variety" in Solaris.

I think it's a bad excuse. I think they should've aimed at really balancing the chassis already in the game, and then we might not need Divisions at all.

But, either way, at the end of the day, these are all still 'Mechs. The Divisions don't really represent vast differences in the way the 'Mechs are played. We don't have different "tracks" for different Divisions, as with Motocross vs NASCAR. So it still doesn't really make any sense for SSR to vary by Division, even if the 'Mechs are kept separate.

As for sponsors, the last time I checked, I got a few hundred CBills from my sponsor on a win. Even with 10 sponsors, that's a pathetic additional reward, and again, the sponsors are still separated by Division, so if I want to "maximize" the additional rewards from my sponsors(which still don't make up for the already terrible CBill rewards per match), I've got to play exclusively in a single Division.
