Now that the next Event has been announced, and heard that Paul "may" be working on the 2020 Loyalty Program next:

Q: If MWO were to create a new Loyalty Mech, which one should it be?

A: I'm voting for the Blood Asp "A", ie: BAS-A

:)

Probably be pick from previous years' choices like last year. No budget for new skins.

I honestly don't care about skins. Give me last year's skins, I want new variants.

Then again I haven't actually paid anything to PGI this year. Oh well.

I would like some new Mechs to buy. I pretty much own all the Mechs I want to own.

Personally, I value the CBills bonus added to the Loyalty Mech, eg: BAS-A(L),
as the standard/regular variant does not have this.

Don't care about the skins (extra work for MWO, questionable mech sales benefit maybe?).
In fact, I dislike the fact that Loyalty Mechs cannot get rid of the unique skin.

eg: King Crab KGC-000(L) which I have, I find the permanent unique skin ghastly and cannot remove it, as I cannot cover up the gigantic "Red" nose at the front, no matter how I try to use different colors/Camo_Pattern.
(So much for camouflage).

Dear PGI,

For years now, I have asked for a Quickdraw with ECM. Lore-wise its some goofy field modification with tech I don't think is even in the game atm (to lazy to verify with Sarna). Don't care. Gimmie a Quickdraw (don't really care about hard points either) with JJ, ECM and a reasonably cool camo pattern and I'll buy it (unless you do something stupid like nerf the agility to "compensate" for the ECM or the equivalent nonsense). Yeah, I'd buy that, and that's even with the expectation that you fuggers will shut down the game the following month.

There is QKD-5Mr Quickdraw in BattleTech that would fit your needs. It is a Jihad Era refit of the Marik QKD-5M from 3050s.

It is equipped with the Guardian ECM suite in the left torso. Other than this, it has hardpoints identical to those of QKD-4G/QKD-4H, but without that center torso missile hardpoint.

I think new stuff is long gone, they were not even going to give us a sixth year cup cake cockpit item until we bitched like hell.

curious as to who made that one 3D printer, or a master for Bandai, doesn't look like the Catalyst redesign, as they're doing the bad one with all the missile launchers in the arms

Actually they have the new MAD-9M(L) which we also want, but not yet in the Loyalty Programme (at least for this year)!
