There's no facts in there.
Calling the event dumb is personal opinion and you can participate with the hero's you got, so you dont pay anything to participate, also there are two non hero specific rewards in every phase. Pay to participate would be pay X amount in $, MC, or C-bills to be able to play the event, like a ticket.
Using your logic you could call any event that requires a certain type of weapon or weight class pay to participate, because if you dont have any of those and still want to get the reward you got to buy a certain weapon or mech, not to mention events that require UAV detects, even if it is just C-bills.

There will also be two-day challenges throughout the event.

I will agree as far as Hero mechs shouldn't be a requirement for any challenge, considering the ratio that requires a Hero mech compared to the challenges that do not... assuming players need to buy the Hero.
What should be done is a simple case of adding the Hero mechs that are in the current phase to the Trial section. This will allow players to try these Hero mechs first, and if liked enough, possibly buying one or a few while on sale. Saying that, of course, not every Hero mech has a good stock loadout, or perhaps one that doesn't suit my play style, but there are nonetheless some I would personally love to try out.

Also praying for a paint sale in the shop soon..... need me some colours for my mechs!

Have you bought ALL 5 Basic Colors for your palette? If not, since they're a little-known thing, then here's how...
  • 1.) Open the MWO Game Client
  • 2.) Go to the "MechLab"
  • 3.) Go to "Camo Spec"
  • 4.) Go to "Color"
  • 5.) Click the drop-down, and pick "Basic"
  • 6.) Pick any Pattern Color slot
  • 7.) Pick any of those 5 Basic Colors other than the pre-unlocked "Basic Green"
  • 8.) Use your (C-Bills) for one-time permanent unlock purchases on each Basic Color
...and now you're able to start painting your Mechs that you own! :)

I only own about 18 hero mechs, so it's not that I will make a ton of MC or something but I really welcome a challenge like that. If you got the mechs, get some rewards, if not, just participate in another event another time.
I dont get why people feel entitled that they must be able to complete every single event in this game.

I didn’t complete every kill with Champion mech challenge, but I had the opportunity to attempt it. It’s more about being able to take part and not feel excluded.

The "Dropship Deals" is still missing Hero mech sale?
In fact, it says "There are no Dropship Deals available."

Please help to correct this? Thanks!

Exactly, but also to try and keep the game alive by having active participation. People that have spent a lot of money and own the Hero mechs are either still playing a lot or have long since abandoned the game. New players or casual players don't get enticed to participate in an event because they lack the mechs.

I was wondering that the LTD was on the List at all. It was given out in a promotion somewhen. It even appears on the profile list as a separate chassis.
So, Matt, what's up with the Dropship Deals and will the LTD Grid Iron really go on sale in September?

DAMN! I was hoping to get enough mc for 50% sleipnir by the time another event hits, I'm short about 350mc now. Next time I guess?

Please some more mc challanges before another 50% off hero mech event!

As per the YouTube Hero Tease video -
The Limited Edition version had special branding an cheerleader cockpit item. I'd forgotten the LTD version even existed until they re-did the 'Mechs you own page and called it out. I know you can own multiple heroes, but seriously wonder if people would own both versions?

I thought I DID have the LTD version, when I saw it called out in the Solaris Division listing, but realized I just had two copies of the regular one once they updated the profile page. I think I bought one and got the other one as an event reward.

Cheers D. V. I have already got all the standard colours, took me a while to realise there were some C Bill paints to buy haha!

just hoping for a discount so i can spend the small amount of MC i've gathered from events on some new shades.


Sure this will help other new players though. all the best, see you on the field!

Aye no Dropship deals.. also why trickle the sales out... so alphabetically last is .. ages away..

EDIT : also OP, the first 'challenge' is the easiest ever to get a week of premium time, and you do not need to do anything special.

Check the rewards, Check the effort
Check the reward to effort ratio and make a discussion if its personally worth it or not.
At least you have the option to do the event, and the option not to do eet. Its up to you and for you if you wish.

The non-hero part of the rewards are happening anyway - basically a gift of a week premium time just for getting shot :P
