Hmm... This is cool... Something which I waited for will be on the Sale Rack here... :D

Before anyone else asks... Why so many I.S. Mechs and so few Clan Mechs up on the Sale for this round? :o

Nice! Everything Looks Great! However I noticed that not all variants of the select chassis are on sale. It looks like the BNC-LM, NSR-9PC, VTR-DS, and ON1-IIC-SK are left out. All of the other chassis appear to have all of the variants on sale.

Thank you for another sale!

i'd agree if there was an actual warehouse with a lots of physical stock in there, but this is digital content that neither takes up space nor costs resources per unit, so there is really nothing to clean out.
To me it just looks like everyone is at home and more willing to buy. Makes sense to keep people engaged. At least I am happy to spend some money on MC and Mechs and at the same time support the game I enjoy.

Mic drop answer and I added bold for effect. :)

I second this, but can note you forgot one item. We also need to tell him to "Please keep posting as his self too, and stay in touch with the Community a bit more!", because silence can all too often be a dangerous thing. :)


Heck, maybe Matt can get the Modelers to put the "UrbanMech IIC" into MWO after all this time! I hear there's a Suggestion Thread for bringing this one into the game :D

So the sale says "all the colors" but some colors are missing. (I have no idea which ones, I just notice that when I click "sale" in-game, a handful of colors near the bottom disappear and the whole thing rearranges itself, but it doesn't seem to change size noticeably).

Yay 1,000 posts !

The two missing colors are :
- Basic green : The color everyone gets by default.
- Invasion green : A color you can win from this event.

Any chance of some limited bolt-on sales, I'm still hoping for an Elbow "Blades" sale ?

People, I really hope that Matt Newman (and/or some other member of PGI's Event Handling Staff) are reading this thread! Have we got some News on Sale-related Bugs for them... :wacko:

CONFIRMED... I also see that some Variants are not showing up on the Sale like they were probably meant to. :mellow:

- Basic green : That's the color you get by default, no point including it.
- Invasion green : A color you can win from this event, I'm guessing it slipped through because it's a new color.

ALSO CONFIRMED... I see these to be missing as well. :(

However, as "Basic Green" is unlocked for Everyone from the day you begin playing, it is not an issue. The "Owned" and "ALL" viewing modes will show that one. ;)

Unfortunately, the "Invasion Green" color is failing to show up at all, albeit that I haven't finished the Event's "Envy" Challenge to redeem it as of yet. But, even the "ALL" viewing mode utterly fails to show this coloring option. I get the impression that it was originally introduced back when the Clans were first introduced to MWO, and was not meant to be visible as it would be an exclusive basic color for the Invasion Wave Mechs from back when. :unsure:

Basic Green everyone owns
Invasion Colors have never been for sale. In this case it is a reward for the event.
I am assuming it is unlocking properly? once the challenge is completed.

BNC-LM, NSR-9PC, VTR-DS, and ON1-IIC-SK Have been added to the sale!

Thanks for the heads up!

I am hearing reports in the Event Thread that the "Invasion Green" Color is unlocking properly, even if slightly delayed for some people. I'll be certain to post again when I either confirm or hit a bug, if I can remember to. :)


By the way, what Camo is that which you chose to use in the "7 Deadly Mech Sins" Event Header? :mellow:

Thank you for keeping up on these Forum Threads and repairing the Sale by adding the Variants. It is VERY appreciated! :D


As I was posting this, I also tripped on one more missing thing. The current Camo Sale seems to have not reached the "Corsair" and "WarHammer IIC" Chassis as an option. I had to dig through my entire list of Owned Mechs to find out about these two, so I'm sorry that I couldn't get this information to you sooner. May I ask you to please add the Camo Options to the Sale as well, since I can reasonably guess there are people that may want them? :o
