Hopefully this type of sale will reoccur on Feb 19th, and again on Mar 19th, etc.

I hate posts like the one I'm about to make, but I feel like it needs to be asked. Would there ever be a sale for Omnipods? Since they take up the engine slot on the Omnimechs. I mostly use IS but I still feel like it is worth putting out there.

Once again thank you for the amazing sale.

Mw5 release date gets announced and preorder up. Lots of wait and see and "what am I gonna spend the mc/chills on?"
Engines go on sale... "Zomg!"

O.o just an observation.

Anyway they could make the sales a little more....well...planned? It seems like the sales happen at the last minute. It makes it difficult to plan ahead our expenditures. I'm not sure why we can't have a nice upcoming events page that lists all the events for a month or two. Other games seem able to do that. I woudn't have used so many Cbills and MC's last week. It almost seems like the planning of the events last minute is a marketing scheme designed to push people into buying more MC/Cbills because they've already spent them on other things.

With that said, I do love this game.

The sale could be coupled with 25% engines for new players who purchase the ultimate MW5 pack, super super incentives to increase the population.

This sale should be a real boon for newer players.



New players dont understand about engines or fiddling with them . I was playing the game for more than 6 months before i started messing with engines . Swopping weapons and changing to endo and ferro armour is obvious , not this .

Dunno how useful this sale is ? If I buy a new mech and it needs an engine change , its done asap. Also everymech needs a different engine . I have tried holding onto engines i pulled out , only to find i cannot just put it into any mech . X mech only functions the way i want with X engine .

So stockpiling engines help how ?


On the plus side i can always use a mechbay sale .

Depends ... thanks to the help of others here in the forums and some other websites, I started hunting for optimal engine sizes within the first week or two of playing MWO, of course heavily limited by the available budget of C-Bills at that time.

The Top 10 of engines I have used in new or updated builds in 2018 are:
6x LE300
5x XL280
3x XL300
3x XL295
3x STD300
3x LE325
2x XL250
2x XL170
2x LE350
2x LE285


The Top 20 of all my builds, though many of them haven't been updated to new tech:
16x XL280
15x XL300
13x XL255
8x XL295
7x XL340
7x LE300
6x XL270
6x XL265
6x XL190
6x XL180
5x XL330
5x XL285
5x XL235
5x LE325
4x XL350
4x XL335
4x LE295
4x LE285
4x LE280
4x LE270


Of course you should check which engines are included in mechs you are planning to buy, some engine sizes are quite common in stock load-outs, e.g. STD/XL 280/300, and you may even want to wait for 50% C-Bill sales of mechs containing XL engines to get those sizes.

Well, you could use the chance to buy one of every engine above 180 rating :) This will become handy if you're the type to strip mechs to fit others. Or at least one of every popular engine. Players have posted the popular engine ratings so there's nothing to think too hard about.

It's true that newest players won't have a clue about engines, but newER players will start to see interesting things about engines, for example the LFE275 and LFE280 have the same weight but the LFE280 offers abit more speed. I didn't realise this earlier on and just bought engines based on the 1-more-heatsink-every-25-engine-points rule. This 25% sale is a nice excuse for me to start replacing some LFE275 builds with LFE280 just for that little bit of min-maxing.

This thing with LFE275/280 plays out for several other engines too.

And by default any player building loadouts will appreciate any discount on CBill equipment while creating loadouts. Perhaps they won't stockpile engines since they are expensive, but they will save 25% if they are configuring during the sale period.

It would be nice if you could just select the engine to buy.. and put a few dozen engines in the cart and just buy it all at once..

It works this way when e.g. cockpit items are on sale (buy them in the in-game store instead of the mechlab), so I hope the same applies here.
