Mech_Con Virtual Ticket Prepurchase is here!





FAQ

When do Mech_Con Attendees get their Mech_Con Virtual Content?
Mech_Con attendees will receive a redeem code upon check-in at Mech_Con.
They will then be able to redeem that code at https://mwomercs.com/profile/redeem
Redemptions will be available starting Nov 30th.
It can take up to an hour for content to be added to your account after redemption. Please be patient

When do Virtual Ticket Purchasers get their Virtual Ticket Content?
Virtual Ticket Purchasers content will be injected into their accounts on Nov 30th.

When will you stop selling the Virtual Ticket?
Mech_Con Virtual Ticket Sales will stop on Dec 14th 00:00 UTC

How many Flags do I get?
You will have 303 Flags in your inventory*
3 for each Chassis available in the game.

What if I don't own every Chassis?
You're doing it wrong! Poke Mech, Gotta catch 'em all!
Seriously tho' they will still be in your inventory. (3 per supported Chassis)
When you purchase a supported chassis you will be able to equip them from the bolt-on menu!
*Please note the Mech Con Bolt on Flag will not be available for the Hatimoto Chi and Charger until the December 11th after the Patch.
Anyone who had redeemed or purchased before then will have the Flags added to their account on that day.

How Many Cockpit Items do I get?
  • Mech_Con Mug Standing Item x 18
  • Mech_Con Attendee Badge Hanging Item x 18
  • Mech_Con Mounted Warhorn x 18

Why 18 of Each Cockpit Item?
Because this is Mech_Con 2018

What does the Warhorn Sound like?
Boop Beep Beep Beep Beep Boop Beep Beep Beep Boop BZZZZZZZT
Or something like that. We will post them on SoundCloud SoonTM.

Will there be any more content added to the Virtual Ticket?
TBD.

Will any of this Content end up in the Tournament Supporter Pack?
TBD.

Does this count to any level of the 2018 Annual Rewards Program?
Unfortunately no.
As this is also part of the Mech Con Ticket and Mech Con tickets are sold on an external site. Also, redemptions for mech con attendees happen past the Rewards Program cut off. There currently isn't a way to make this count for the rewards program

Do I need a virtual ticket to watch the Mech_Con stream?
No. The Mech_Con stream will be live on twitch for all to see.
The "virtual ticket" is for players who are unable to attend but would still like to have the Mech_Con Content associated with the attending.

Would be nice if the synergy with the TSP is that we get a sweet camo pattern ;P
(Inspired by the warhorn maybe?)

Mech_Con will be live-streamed on https://www.twitch.tv/piranhagames
and you can watch with or without the Virtual Ticket.

Is there any Mechcon merchandise actually available for order? I am a mug freak, but would also love t shirts or something else.

Or a full unlock of last year's camo pattern, perhaps? Just saying.

Personally I think you have to make that clearer that you are not selling virtual tickets but virtual swag, like right in the title or such

StarCitizen got raked over the coals for actually trying to do this and even knowing last years MechCon stream was free that was the first thing that came to mind, especially since that SC thing was still so fresh in memory

Edit: also I hope it doesn't not end up in the supporter pack
I'd rather have different swag with different purchases than 36 mugs, 606 flags

Btw, I'd alo would very much buy some more cockpit items of the old and recent supporter packs, but even the recent one I can't actually redeem 2 and can't buy more cockpit items even if I own them
Hint; I'm liking how the 2016 standing crystal turned out

Well thing is bolt ons might not drop a lot, and many don't actually play Solaris or probably pay for bolt ons right away

But yesterday I saw an Atlas with bolt ons (horns n more) so yes you see them in all ques

So $10 for a bunch of cockpit items that provide no other benefit than confirming whale status?

No Thanks - My wallet still remains closed until something gets done about fixing some of the core issues that have been around for years.

Or PGI is reacting to the whining that other players that couldn't attend MechCon didnt get digital MechCon swag.

I get what your saying, but still.
8€ for 18 war horns I like the look of, ehh.

I wish all Warhorns were $1.25 each regularly... I'd probably buy more of them if that was the case. But PGI charges over double that, which I think is insane.

The stream is free, correct?
That makes the naming for this item quite incorrect.
"2018 MechCon Virtual Goody Bag" would be more appropriate. Posted Image

If there's nothing added, I'll pass. I couldn't care less about bolt-ons, and I don't really need those cockpit items.

Just a way for players to show their support for Mech_Con even if they can't attend.
It allows them to get the same content that attendees get.

Last year attendees received a Mech_Con Pattern unlock for around 80 Mechs.
We received enough requests that people who could not attend be able to purchase a "virtual" ticket to access the same content.

That is being worked on currently and will be available this week.

I'll take your thoughts on the naming into consideration.
I have no current plans to add anything but I am not going to rule it out either.

I hear ya, at 1$ a pop I'd probably wouldn't even thinking about it when I kit out a new mech.
I bought a war horn that came with the cyclops originally and i have fought with me about either buying or just using some of them i already had (won the first for free in an event).
And i really like that one, so many others never come to my mind even spenindg money on as a MC purchase.
It's just that much MC.

I heard a rumor that every Mech Con attendee will get a hug from Matt Newman, how will this be carried over to Virtual Ticket holders?
