Yep, not sure I understand why the silence about the arm actuator issue from the source. I will admit that I haven't had time to even get the patch yet, but what I am reading says there is a significant enough issue to warrant some attention. What gives, PGI?


<edit>: looks like I should have waited ten minutes, as they just announced the hot fix for tomorrow.

Matt Newman, THANK YOU for getting these Mech Release Challenges up for those people out there who purchased the MechPacks in advance. Now I'll get to see some more new artwork on the battlefields, as people go around picking out various ways to paint their Mechs. :D

Heh... I'll even get to find those other folks who poked you about putting up those Challenges, and get to poke them a plenty with lots of Mech Weaponry. I joke, but....... I'll be your instrument of revenge!!! :P

This is what the Charger was made to do!

On a somewhat related note, that bugle warhorn is one of the best yet

Eh... You're missing a "SnowFall Camo"... How would you color it then? :P

By the way, is that the 'Shugo Hero Default Camo' you're running there? I forgot. :unsure:

Bugle?

If so...its about time, I mean it's only been 6 and a half years.

Well 6 years and two months.

Its the Kurita camo pattern I think was early adopter for Hatamoto Chi, just turned it from white to red and added some decals.
For house Kurita the secondary color probably should be same as primary (crimson red) but it kinda looked blah to me. But hey it came with Butternut squash yellow... and I just liked how that looks a bit more.

Here's how to replicate those colors from default, plus fill in those missing parts of the dragon.

Your arrangement work looks pretty darn cool there. I do think however that the yellow you chose for the Secondary on the Kurita Faction Camo itself is a better choice. The crimson red color for the Secondary just causes the black parts to drown out instead. The yellow makes the flame tongue show, causing the dragon head to look right. ^_^

Maybe create a second set of screenies with the yellow better identified, just for user reference? :)

@Matt, the Extra pattern unlock is a proper reward for the collectors pack. Hope it will become a standard feature going forward. :)

I always go for early adopter rewards because of pattern, extra cbills, colours, and back in the day a module.

The Collectors packs have always felt a little heavy in price (imo) so a 2nd pattern unlocked would be nice.
Although an option to pick 1 bolton, OR _ 4,095,000 CBills And 72,800 GXP (to make 91 skill points) might go farther to entice others to get collectors packs?

The Collectors challenge has always awarded another pattern unlock. At least for the past year since Nov17

Been a while since any mech tickled my fancy, so my first encounter with it. Definitely adds to the value for the rather pricey second pack.
