Who the heck set this up?

Here's a list of problems;

- Three of the Light Heroes are actually Mediums (Assassin, Cicada, Arctic Wolf)
- Shadowhawk and Griffin both have broken picture links
- Quickdraw and Rifleman mechs are apparently Mediums now. (Both are actually Heavies)
- Awesomes, Victors and Zeuses are not Heavies, they are Assaults.
- Black Lanner's a Medium, not a Heavy. Stormcrow is also a Med, not a Heavy.
- Nova Cats, Timber Wolves, Sun Spiders, Summoners, and Night Gyrs are ALL Heavies, not Assaults.
-The Orion Protector's pic link is also broken.

This got edited like seven times as I went through the listings. Woe betide anyone who quoted me in the past five minutes.

Who was drunk when they grouped these by weight?

I can't get the pages to work properly, sometimes all the pictures load, but you cannot select anything, to create a bundle.

Ok working now, but yes mulitple mechs in wrong weight classes.

Suggest in the future to allow you to sub down. 4 heavies or 3 heavies and a medium or 2 heavies, 1 medium, 1 light etc...

I was super excited for this until I saw how broken it was. I'll wait a couple hours for it to get fixed but holy cow 3 Assault heroes for $30 is actually pretty good, considering that Ultraviolet is $25 on its own

EDIT: Yeah someone must've put "less than or equal to 40" instead of "less than 40" when sorting between lights and mediums, and the same for 75t for the heavies and assaults

It looks like a critical sorting failure occurred when assigning these 'mechs by weight class.

For the record for the person who set up the web page, though 40-tonners admittedly do feel like lights, the arrangement of traditional Battletech and MWO do line up.


Light mechs are between 20 and 35 tons.
Mediums are between 40 and 55 tons.
Heavies are between 60 and 75 tons.
Assaults are from 80 to 100 tons.

Assassins and Cicadas play like lights, but are in reality mediums.

Its a good deal, especially if you consider historical discounts:

The top 3 assault mechs are probably the UV, DS, and Sleipnir, totaling 22875MC. If you purchase during a 50% discount sale, it'll run you 11437.5MC.

A good MC sale with 50% bonus for 30$ still only gets you 9750MC, so you save ~7$ worth of MC there.

Now it'd be even better if these purchases counted towards the loyalty rewards *hint hint* Posted Image

you guys dont get it do you, this list of mech just shows the value of each mech. now we know that a medium, heavy and assault mech sucks so bad that they are valued a lower tier .

this is how PGI values their mech so if you see a medium in a light group that means it sucks and the value is low

It's a typo in the code.
Lights are <40t but someone must've typed <=40t or whatever the operators are
Same for all the other classes. But no, keep hiding under your tinfoil hat

I'm interested and I'll buy more than 1 'set' but I'll wait for these to be fixed. I don't want to get that IV-4 in the medium deal and then have a problem later.

*edit* Also, I'd buy the Heavy pack, 2 are listed corectly as Heavies, but one is listed as an Assault and one is listed as a Medium...so no heavy bundle for me.

That doesn't explain why stormcrow is in the heavy tier, I think he's right and its based on MC value

Based on the many typos and mistakes that occur on a regular basis I'd say it's just another goof. Should be fixed shortly.

After looking the mech sale selection over myself, it--for some strange reason--reminds of something my dad told me once:

One tequila,
two tequila,
three tequila,
floor.
