    I can follow this sale with a Mech C-Bill sale- (I am assuming this is what you mean)
    If you are a nub tho you should grab some Mech Bays on this sale if you need them!

    Now this, this is a fantastic sale (aside from having no mechs on sale for C-BILLS). With double XP and quad conversion, if you really wanted to skip the grind of skilling up all those mechs that were on sale through christmas sales or dropship bundles you can now do so. Plus half-off mechbays means you can easily use all the recent MC given from the grab bag event and the Holiday bonus to expand your roster of mechs. I'm super excited to go and acquire some hero mechs I've been waiting to go on a sale. If you do a follow-up C-BILL mech sale, it'd be fantastic to see engines on sale as well. Those things are insanely expensive for anything other than a standard type engine.

    Mechs for C-Bill sale when? These last few events left me with a fat stack of C-Bills, just not enough to even make a scratch in my wish list. Are we going to have another sale in the first month of the new year? MWO events/Sales tend to be pretty infrequent post holiday season...

    Happy New Year, MechWarriors!

    Thank you for closing our year out with another fun sale. I appreciate everyone at PGI for their continued dedication and support in keeping this game alive. I hope next year we can bring up some ideas for events+sales to push out so we can continue to grow the community. I have a good feeling about the direction PGI's taken in listening to community's feedback more.

    On a side note, I'm eager for a 50% C-Bill Mechs sale soon!
    With all the great previous sales, I have enough Mechbays to store one of each mech, but not enough C-Bills to fill all of the mechbays up LOL Posted Image

    Should've bought some MC during the 2 for 1, but got a Bakers Dozen instead.
    Of the chassis I'm missing, I'll have to see which heroes to buy. Any recommendations for these are welcome:

    Supernova: Maybe a CB one as missile boat, or would the hero be worth it?
    Mad Cat MKII: No idea there.
    Kodiak: Similar.
    Gargoyle: Probably a CB one, no idea what to do with that.
    Executioner: Same.
    Dire Wolf: Maybe the UV for an AC boat. Other ideas?
    Timber Wolf: Also probably a CB one, no idea, since I don't like the ears.
    Viper: The hero could be interesting (that's the one for a MG boat, right?). Other ideas for that chassis?
    Stormcrow: Hmm.
    Ice Ferret: Hero or a CB one?
    Osiris: Last missing IS chassis :) Maybe a CB one.
    Jenner IIC: Probably a CB one as SRM boat, seems to work ok.
    Adder: Ideas for that?

    Nope

    Mad Cat MKII: No idea there.
    -B first for C-Bills. The others are respectable, but the -B with 2xUAC10/2xUAC5 is the go to one. The Hero is one of the few clan heroes worth getting but i would get others first and consider it later if you really like the -B variant.

    Kodiak: Similar.
    Nope. Stay away.

    Gargoyle: Probably a CB one, no idea what to do with that.
    Later

    Executioner: Same.
    Stay away. Hero for Solaris only, but there are strong contenders now for c-bills, so stay away too.

    Dire Wolf: Maybe the UV for an AC boat. Other ideas?
    There are only cheese builds, an you get ripped apart. Buy this one when you have everything else. Try out a c-bill one first to see how bad it is in terms of turning/speed/survivability

    Timber Wolf: Also probably a CB one, no idea, since I don't like the ears.
    Stay away. By a good measure. The poor thing has been nerfed into the ground.

    Stormcrow: Hmm.
    Very good, omni, but the hero gives you no special options over c-bill iirc. still a good choice, although the VGL is the new cool kid on the block for 55t

    Ice Ferret: Hero or a CB one?
    The -P has ecm in the center (same as the hero), so perhaps get that one first and the hero if you find yourself playing it a lot (which i doubt)

    Osiris: Last missing IS chassis Posted Image Maybe a CB one.
    4D for the added laser hardpoint

    Jenner IIC: Probably a CB one as SRM boat, seems to work ok.
    plain IIC but i never really play that one anymore, the kit fox does mostly the same but better

    Adder: Ideas for that?
    Prime for PPC-Sniping, but meh


    /edit: answers for the individual mechs inline in the quote, sorry for not marking them

    If you do not own them already: Cyclops Sleipnir, Quickdraw IV-4 and Wolfhound Grinner are among of the best bang for the buck. Besides the Deathstrike, i think the Pakhet is the one clan hero to get.
    Your mileage may vary though, just my 2c

    Looks very nice, seems that I joined the game on the right time, but probably would be better if I found it earlier because the game is awesome and love the customization.
    Is there some hero mech that is more suitable for new player or better use that MC on mech bays ?
    Also will wait for a Mech C-bill sale as I used most of my C-bills equipping and rearming my first Mech )
