Wait, only inner sphere mechs? I guess I didn't read the fine print.

It's the mechs that are currently on sale and the ones in the WC, that's why it's IS mechs only.

They used the Loyalty CN9-AH image for some reason instead of the standard version.

I'm a newer player at t4 getting better. I own around 30 mechs with about 6 fully skilled around 14 in a rotation of trying to get dalies of 2x. So that leaves around 10 unskilled mechs and it takes time to skill them up dropping QP solo t4 as we know over half the time its a blowout.

So why in the world would I buy 10 more mechs even for that good price? Do you know how long it would take an average NEWER player dropping solo QP . That would mean I would be playing with a HUGE disadvantage for a very long time. I might play a couple hours a night a few nights and maybe more on the weekends. Then with the release of a new mech every month once they get over the "light" mech craze and go heave or assault mechs I will buy them and skill them.

I feel like that selection needs to be bigger, or make it a combined package (f.e. 5 lights - 5 mediums, or 2 lights - 2 mediums - 2 heavies - 2 assaults).

I for one would definitely appreciate the ability for a mixed basket, ie $2 per light mech, $2.5 per medium, $3 per heavy and $3.5 per assault, and buying 10 based on the ability to mix and match. Esp considering the events which require mechs across all weight classes. As a new player or even one year in, I'd much rather buy eg 2/3/2/3 than 10/0/0/0.

PGI gets more sales, players get more mechs, win win.

They appear to have used the image for the Loyalty version.

Guess that means no Clan mechs allowed in the WC?

10 mixed mechs at cost/weight bracket would be far more attractive - struggling to find even 4 or 5 in a particular weight class I'd even consider (includes duplicates to already owned) as a long term player. First impression YAY!, seconds thoughts hmm . . . ?

Hmmm . I think hardcore collectors would be the only folks interested in this deal . A noob aching for extra mechs probably wants a mixture of weight classes .

I do like the fact that you can cherry pick whatever you want . Thats awesome .

I myself would rather buy a mechpack with added premium time and a cute badge bonus .

Yes I know this was for tournament promotion. I do read. Nevermind the fact by promoting stock loadouts, you guys are going to give rookies bad ideas. Ideas being mixing ranges is a good approach, and stocking up on LRMs solves all problems.

Anyways devs I am not asking that you put anything mega important on sale for the clans. Just use the old standard clan omni mechs. This will allow any new clan player to get a good jump on prepping for invasion. Faction players like myself a chance to try mechs that people claim are too terrible to use, such as say for me personally the executioner.
