Nice. Will you reveal the configs of these 2 ahead of time? From the picture it seems they don't run on the default loadout of the non (S) version.

It's rather good yeah, a while ago they gave away the Roughneck Powerhouse and Sunspider Vanguard too, which were and still are pretty freakin' legit chassis. That was my favourite actually, Powerhouse has good armour buffs and torso missiles / ballistic for ac20/srm face smash, meanwhile Vanguard has both ballistic and energy cooldown with 2 and 1 mount in high torsos respectively. Always wanted an Urbie, so this latest give away will be nice. That MC is perfect for new and old players alike as well to grab mechbays with.

Well, free stuff is always great but can You, please, take that trashcan that someone call a mech out and give normal clan chassis?.. To make it fair for IS and clans...

How about I play "Devil's Advocate" here? Maybe I somehow find the anti-UrbanMech hate kind of insulting? Maybe they drop the underwhelming "PXH-1K(S)" and replace it with a Clan Light Mech that has an "(S)" designation on it? Perhaps make that an "UrbanMech IIC" New Variant that we have to wait for the delivery of, as they go to spring the "UM-IIC" series on us? :P



Any which way I see it, while I am thankful for there being a Holiday Bonus 2020 to earn, I can tell someone backstage is rather upset with having a Community mobbing them over the game's current state. (Hell, this next part isn't directed specifically at one person, so PLEASE pardon me for breaking into a rant here, but I haven't had the chance to spend any time on those threads in the other Board Area due to things that went way beyond my control.) The thing is, if a bunch of bad actors in the Community had not gone around wrecking the game so badly, and had instead taken aim directly on the Core PSR/MM/MS Issues that literally sabotaged & underlaid EVERYTHING in this game, then we would NEVER have landed up in the mess which we're in right now. The biggest headache in particular is that all the Match Score items other than Damage/AMS are all too low, and that happens to be messing literally everything else up. So if we undo ALL the nerfs on the Mechs/Weapons which are currently available, boost the Match Scoring on anything that is not Damage/AMS points, increase the Armor/Structure to 3x the TableTop amounts, and finally make the MatchMaker ensure Tonnage Classes on both Teams in a Match are properly EQUALIZED to matching Light/Medium/Heavy/Assault counts (such as if one Team has 2/4/1/5, then the other side should also have 2/4/1/5 as well) on BOTH sides, THEN AND ONLY THEN will we finally have a Balanced Game that is enjoyable for everyone out there, inclusive of those who have either a Slow Computer and/or an Imperfect Physical Body that they're unfortunately stuck with. And NO, damnit, people can't just suck it up and play the "git gud" way that others want them to, AND WE NEED TO STOP DRIVING OUT EVERYONE WHO LACKS BOTH A PERFECT PHYSICAL BODY AND FAST COMPUTER, or we will end up with the Player Base getting so small that PGI absolutely has to shutter MWO's doors because it just isn't feasible anymore!!! :angry:
