I think he's talking about the head laser. Which is subject to personal taste, i guess.

It just really turned me off to see it just kind of tacked on there... I don't know what I was expecting.

However, the point is that every variant is almost exactly the same except for the hero that has ballistic. I usually support PGI and buy packs, but I just can't do it much anymore when the pack is just "meh". $70 for the ultimate, and they keep ignoring major community leaders like Kanajashi who call for them to take $10 off the ultimate as a thank you to those who support them. $70 can get me a lot in the game industry, with my house, with my car, etc.

I'll still support PGI, just not to the same degree, and not when I see something like this. I still love the Warhammer and the IIC looks awesome, which is why I'll get the hero later ;)

If they changed one or two of reinforcement mechs to ballistic I might buy this pack.

Does this super-secret bonus (whatever it may be) count for gifted pre-orders?

Its probably an additional early adopter mech variant like what happened with the Marauder 2C. Since there aren't any others that fit the tech timeline without advancing it to allow plasma cannons or HAGs (which there's no way in hell PGI would balance properly to please people, they were broken in classic battletech), it's going to be something invented like the hero version is and probably adding ballistic hardpoints to shut up all the folks complaining that two of the basic pack variants are essentially identical aside from the single missile hardpoint on one of them.

I tend to say yes because as of late (or is it "as of always"?) the gifted got the bonus swag, not the giftee.

Also: I am looking forward to another special gift..secret...secret gift.

Sad I know, but I bought a standard pack and the Hero on the basis of this, super sekkit bonus, even with my loathing of the clan II concept.

If it sucks in my opinion, there is always the cancel button.

That kind of runs contrary to their commercial interest to... interest people in buying the hero version. Not to say the concern is not legit, but, for instance, I bought only the collector pack for Blood Asp and could not justify buying any other remaining variant. And MAD-IIC-8 was so damn unique (not) between IIC proper and IIC-B. I think I am going to grab more popcorn and watch how spheroid apologists in PGI cringe and wheel around the topic of Rifleman IIC Posted Image
