Interesting. I only play Clan so the only IS Mechs I own are the ones that I got for free and cannot get rid of. (Except I did buy Uziels....nostalgia!). Yet, I do not know if I could play in support of the dezgra clan that murdered over a million residents of a city because they got their pride hurt.

Edit: You have spoiled me by offering GXP along with the MC bonus in the past. It would certainly help with getting these free Mechs skilled up. Throw that in and I will make a purchase.

I am always happy to see loot bag events. Especially when I have no plans that weekend.

*edit* For clarification... 5 days of Faction Play (Skirmish Mode only) means that Skirmish will be the only mode available, right?

From the bonus bag section it looks like the next mech announcement will be a double feature. Wonder what they'll be?

EDIT: Damnit I got ninja'd.

Hmmm . . . 2 mechs coming at once? I'd like to believe Wasp/Stinger pack, but the mechs lined up for announcement were probably already decided before the HG lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice.

Tell you what, PGI. The PTS runs and Chris actually putting up a post about a discussion on fixing Flamers in the future (in the Alpha Balance thread) have given me some hope on the future balance and enjoyment of the game. If it is Wasp/Stinger, I'd be highly inclined to finally open my wallet for the first time in almost 3 years. No promises, though.

Of course, I'd be more inclined to believe it's going to be an IS/Clan duo in light of upcoming faction play event(s).

Even though I know what is meant, we get a (C) heavy for free at 150 loot bags...I still want to claim a CHP-INV (Invictus) as my freebie mech, please. Posted Image

Also I wonder if the two new mechs will count towards the loyalty rewards.

Yes! The upcoming (IS) Pre-order will be added to the Annual Rewards Program for qualification.

As will the October (Clan) Pre-order.

Enough Hints for you guys...

5 days without siege maps for a Invasion related event is a crime bigger than the Turtle Bay Massacre.

Afraid so... which is really kind of dumb. It means that PGI is intentionally making a situation where both sides can reach their goal physically impossible. Further, they're making it so that the Community's skills are NOT being properly tested. They're wiping away all other game modes (another repeat of something bad they did with the Last 24 Hours of the Alpha Balance PTS 2.1 ... mobility was supposed to be tested, as per the news announcement, and PGI's PTS Team basically created a situation where it could not ... mobility is more than dodging in battle, as it also deals with getting across the battlefield from location to location), particularly ones like Conquest which I find fun. That negates the worth of Light & Assault Mechs within the scope of the Event, as it creates a setup designed more for Medium & Heavy Mechs. I guess someone at PGI has lost their blasted mind finally, because Constant Skirmish Game Mode is going to totally kill off MWO. Take fair note of my words, the end is coming at this rate. -_-

Heck, this person says it well...

...as it confirms things I'm saying! Now you start to get a scope of how dismal that things are going to get. :(




As for this...

Eh... Pray it will finally be the "UrbanMech IIC" (Suggestion @ https://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/249005-urbanmech-iic-clans-need-their-urbienlightenment-too-poll/) coming to MWO finally. We're overdue for it. :huh:






Well, quotes done... But one thing is for sure, if the Loot Bags aren't healthy enough, I'll lose all inclination to play through, and that will ruin any Review which I might pump out for this Event. :unsure:

So this means that both the August 31st mechs are IS? That's how I interpret it.

Actually, given the second part of the Event running as long as the first, but placed after, it would need to be more like 2 weeks (14 days) of Premium Time. :wacko:
