Just ordered!
In fact, I will buy multiple packs of the same, for Faction Play!

1. Finally sat down and did the math, and these IS New Player Packs are worth it, just for the MC, Premium Time, and the GSP!
Essentially you get the Hero mech as a bonus, and the total +10% CBills cockpit items as a bonus too!
Totally worth it!

2. These packs can be used well in Faction Play also; not just for new players:

Below 4 mechs: Total of 260 tons out of IS max dropdeck 265 tons
1x Cyclops Assault Pack: 90ton Assault [Hint: twin ballistic torso]
2x Warhammer Heavy Pack: 70ton Assault x2 [Hint: twin ballistic torso]
1x Urban Mech Light Pack: 30ton Light [I've stuck AC20 in it and actually defeated an enemy with it!]

~So your entire 4-mech dropdeck consists of +40% CBills Hero Mechs!
(ie: +30% CBIlls Hero + total 10% CBills cockpit items).

Therefore these can also be well used for Faction Play as well; not just for new players!

It would be nice if not only these packs will be available on steam, but all packs in general.

I wish this event included extra rewards for using the pack in FP like other sale pack events had play type rewards.

like, play 5 FP games, win or lose for cbill reward/pattern reward/color rewards with this drop deck.

Probably when you buy the bundle.
I cannot see if the offers are time-limited or permanent...... (but I assume its permanent, till they change the whole bundle packs). If its 3/6/9 month period could say vets.....

5 MPL used to be the go-to build for the K9, not using all it's energy hard points seems like a waste

Dear MWO/PGI,

1. Looking forward to the Clan version for this "New Player Pack" also!!

2. So does this "Ultimate Pack" for "New Player Pack--Inner Sphere" qualify for the Annual (loyalty) Rewards Program hopefully towards the end of this year, towards the "IS Top Tier Reward" category hopefully?
Personally, I'm now planning which IS Top Tier Ultimate Mech Package to get!

http://mwomercs.com/...rewards-program

[Disclaimer: Whilst there has been regular MWO Annual (loyalty) Rewards Program for the past few years, MWO has not explicitly promised one for this year 2021. Or at least, not yet.]


I would also like to know this. I'm trying to decide between the Ultimate Pack and 2 of the other packs. If this qualifies for Loyalty, PGI will get more of my money :P

In conclusion, the Urbie Mech is a super buy!!!



The Urbie is always a good buy, regardless of the circumstance!!

These packs sound really good, but why does the ultimate pack only give one set of 3000 MC instead of four, and only two sets of the C-Bill boosting cockpit items instead of four? I was absolutely going to buy the ultimate pack, but now I'm not sure.

Its not, but hopefully the Cauldron will give it some love now. The others are all great choices.

Will these packs be available for a limited time or will they be permanent editions to the store? If they will be removed, when?

Its a Bundle, not a Pack. So probably won't be permanent.
