FAQ
Why was this done?
I (Matt Newman) made a Twitter post that implied that purchasing the Warhammer IIC
would get the purchaser something to be announced at Mech Con.
It creating a fear of missing out without the knowledge of what the thing is you would miss out on. (Not Good)
I was intending to hint at the Holiday Bonus which everyone is eligible to receive. (That's Good)
This is an effort to make amends to those who purchased due to this tweet.
Also, to be fair, we have extended the early adopters for any other player who wishes get the same rewards.

Do I Qualify?
If you have already purchased any level of the Warhammer IIC pack you qualify.
Or if you purchase before the NEW Early Adopter Deadline (Dec 31st 11:59:59 - Jan 1st 7:59:59 UTC)
you will receive the additional variant when the Warhammer IIC 'Mech Pack ships Feb. 19th, 2019

I think that having 2 energy per side torso and none in the CT like the canon WHM-IIC 5 would've been best, but this is alright too.

I am totally okay with this. I mean sure (4) ballistics would be better or what not... but I am totally cool with it...

I am actually pretty cool with the stock loadout - I mean I will probably dump the streaks for a different flavor of missile - but I like it.

Could probably do a light variant of the MadCat Mk2 - double gauss, 3er med, and a pair of lurm 10s... any way you cut it, I like it.

I like it. The "A" designation for a clan Battlemech seems a bit strange but the loadout looks pretty desirable.

Only this community would complain about getting a free mech that was never intended to be in the game. Just take it and run with it, damn.

Thanks Matt and Russ for talking and making this mech come to fruition! Love how different it is than the rest of the whammys iic's!

Good on Matt for trying to make up for a mistake. I understand why they made the ballistics on the arms after looking at the Maul hero mech, so I'm cool with that.

Thanks again for owning up to a mistake and working on doing the right thing.

Now to see the the complainers in the thread.Posted Image

Damn. This is potentially even better than the -5's hardpoint spread. You could theoretically run something extremely close to a Scorch, minus one SRM6, but with far lower susceptibility to being stripped!

The "-A" designation on a Battlemech indicates a 'mech invented by PGI that is not part of the original canon. Same goes for all the other Clan Battlemechs. (Nearly all of them have at least one example, as there weren't 5, or even 3, Canon variants for PGI to use to make a 'mech pack).

The Corsair is not comparable because the MWO twitter feed didn't make a comment urging people to place a pre-order before Mech Con and that people might regret if they did not pre-order. This only happened with the Whammy IIC.

Why? The entire point of the extra variant is to make amends for the accidental FOMO that happened due to a miscommunication. No such thing happened with the Corsair. Further, this also resolves one of the larger complaints the WHM-IIC variants created: lack of hardpoint variety. It was all energy based except for one missile boat, with virtual duplicate variants, and no ballistic options outside of the hero. Now there's a ballistic option, making this a well rounded overall chassis.
