For those who still do not have this, it's a solid value :)

Cheers!

The older packs with colours and MC were nicer than this. I bought one from the second wave and would buy if the first wave came back or so. The Solaris pack has a lot of junk mechs.
Would really like more varied Steam packs anyhow, ones with MC.

I bought that Solaris 7 pack ... those are some tough mechs to make work.

I got the pack when it came out and the only one I'm not really enthused about is the Rifleman, but that's largely because I just don't care for the Rifleman. Some took more figuring out than others (Banshee took a lot of work), but I ended up with some really great builds for all of them. Ironically most of them work better in quickplay than they do in Solaris. Just keep working at it.

I have the S7 pack. Indeed those are not meta-mechs. But it's a great deal if you want 7 mechs with 30% CBill bonus, esp if you have Steam regional pricing in your favour.

Actually all of them work just fine. Ironically as stated above, I dropped only with the Kraken in Solaris, the others are a better fit for QP or even FP. Some of the builds I use required a little out of the box thinking, but in the end I am very happy with the pack.

Any chance you Gentlemen want to share your builds ? Ive never been able to squeeze more than mediocre results out of mine... oddly enough the Rifleman is the only one i can play well.

Working from memory so bear with me -
Kraken - HGR and 2 MRM30s or AC20 and 2 MRM30s and some MLs
Ares - 4 ERMLs and MRM30/40, I forget which
Street Sweeper Cleaner - 2 MRM10s, 3 MLs
Revenant - 2 ERLL, 4 ERML
Firestorm - 4 MGs, 4 ERMLs
Siren - AC20, SPPC, MRM30/40, I forget which.

Seems like a decent deal. Especially for new players. Since they can work through all the mechs and enjoy the 30% c-bill bonus, plus premium for the month. It really takes the edge off losses. It also gives them the whole weight spectrum, even if not meta. But I just don't find any of the mechs appealing. Perhaps the Mad Dog for the CT hard points.

I skipped the Rifleman for reasons already stated and you apparently already have one you like. Hope this is helpful. I have a lot of success with these mechs.

Edit: Immediately after making this post I played this game in the Banshee Siren on Mining Collective and used the arm mounts to catch enemies at the varying elevations around the middle of the map and pick apart the lights that like to use it to jump jet around over your head. At 64 KPH I was also able to easily relocate with the heavies and mediums that went on flanking actions, and maintained a comfortable heat level the whole time; it really is a great mech with the right build.
