RELEASE DATES AND ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION
Q: What are the release dates for the Predator Pack variants?

  • Blood Asp (all variants): January 18th 2022
  • Shadow Cat (all variants): January 18th 2022
Q: What are the release dates for the other items in my Predator Pack, such as the Cockpit Items?
The additional items included in the Predator Pack, such as the Cockpit Items, will be injected into your account at the same time as the Predator 'Mechs themselves (starting January 18th 2022).

Q: Someone gifted me a Predator Pack, which I’ve redeemed successfully through the Redeem Portal. When will I receive my 'Mechs?
Delivery of items received from a Predator Gift Code will also begin starting on January 18th 2022. Gift Codes that were purchased within the Early Adopter Reward window of eligibility do qualify for the rewards, even if they're redeemed outside the eligibility window. However, Early Adopter Rewards are only injected automatically by the database into eligible accounts on the specific date of the Early Adopter Reward release.

Therefore, any granting of Early Adopter Rewards for special Gift Code cases will need to be handled manually by Support services, so please send off an e-mail to accounts@mwomercs.com if you want to inquire about Early Adopter Reward eligibility for your Gift Code.

Q: When will Predator Early Adopters receive the Early Adopter rewards?
Purchases processed and received before February 15th 2022 10:00:00 AM PST (February 15th 2022 06:00:00 PM UTC) will be eligible for receiving the following Early Adopter Rewards at the same time as the release of the Predator Pack:
  • EXCLUSIVE Bolt-ons that only go with the (S)pecial Variants (and match the custom skin)
  • 200 GSP
  • 2 copies of the 5% Stackable C-Bill Boost Hanging Item for Clan 'Mechs
* Please note that depending on your transaction method, processing delays may result in a final processing time that falls after the above cutoff time. To help minimize the potential impact on Support services we request that you try to compensate for any processing time that may be associated with your payment method to help ensure your automatic eligibility for the Early Adopter Rewards.

Q: If I buy a Gift Code in time for the Early Adopter Rewards, but my recipient doesn't redeem it until after the deadline, will they still receive those Early Adopter Rewards?
Gift Codes that were purchased within the Early Adopter Reward window of eligibility do qualify for the rewards, even if they're redeemed outside the eligibility window. However, Early Adopter Rewards are only injected automatically by the database into eligible accounts on the specific date of the Early Adopter Reward release.

Any granting of Early Adopter Rewards for special Gift Code cases will need to be handled manually by Support services, so please send off an e-mail to accounts@mwomercs.com if you want to inquire about Early Adopter Reward eligibility for your Gift Code.

Q: Do I need empty Mech Bays in preparation for receiving my 'Mechs?
Each Pack comes with all the Mech Bays required in order to house your newly acquired 'Mechs.

Q: What is the difference between a Special Variant and a Standard Variant?
The Special (S) Variant gives you a 30% C-Bill Boost when using that 'Mech. Standard Variants do not include this C-Bill boost.

The Special (S) Variant also come with a unique Pattern, which cannot be acquired or applied to other 'Mechs.

Q: Will I be able to acquire Standard versions of the Special Variants?
Yes, these will be released for purchase in-game with MC and C-Bills according to the release dates provided earlier in this FAQ.

Q: Will the Standard versions of the Special Variants have the same C-Bill Boost and unique Pattern?
No. The Standard Variant versions of the Special (S) Variants will not have the 30% C-Bill Boost, nor will they have the unique Pattern.

Q: Can I remove the unique Pattern from the Special (S) Variant to apply other Patterns?
Yes!

Q: If I remove the unique Pattern from the Special (S) Variant, can I re-apply it to that 'Mech later?
Yes, and there would be no cost in re-applying it. However, you can only apply that unique Pattern to the Special (S) Variant. You cannot apply the unique Pattern of an (S) Variant to any Standard Variants or other 'Mechs.

Q: Can I apply custom colors to the unlocked channels of the unique (S) Variant Patterns?
Yes!

Q: Can I sell my Special (S) or Standard Variant 'Mechs?
(S) Variants are locked to their Mech Bay and cannot be sold in-game. These are the Variants designated with an (S).

Standard Variants may be sold normally, freeing their Mech Bay for use with another 'Mech.

Q: If I sell my Standard Variants, can I re-purchase them?
You can sell your Standard Variants at any time, but you will only be able to re-acquire them when they become available for MC and C-Bill Purchase according to the release dates above.

Q: What guarantees can be made about the balance of these Mechs?
Only that we will try to provide as fair an experience for all players, Clans and Inner Sphere alike. This may mean "nerfing" or "buffing" some weapons or adding Quirks to the 'Mechs at a later date.

Q: What are the Hardpoint details?
Hardpoints and other 'Mech details can be found towards the bottom of the Predator Pack page.

COLLECTION INCENTIVES, MONTHLY OR EARLY ADOPTER REWARDS, AND FACTION CONTENT

Q: Who or what is Xsolla?
Xsolla is a global payment processor with a specific focus on providing payment infrastructures for videogame developers and publishers.

Q: Why can't I seem to process a successful transaction using PayPal Credit?
PayPal Credit is currently not supported. At this time the only available workaround for using PayPal Credit funds for MWO transactions is to send money from your main PayPal Credit account over to a secondary PayPal account. This will then allow you to use the newly-deposited funds in your secondary PayPal account to successfully process the transaction. Please note that when using the Send Money feature PayPal will apply a flat fee of 2.9% + $.30 US dollars (USD) per transaction to your payment total. This is the same fee you pay when you use a debit or credit card to send money through PayPal. Also note that this feature is not available on mobile devices.

Q: Am I able to get a refund for my 'Mech Pack if necessary?
Refunds are granted without issue in cases where none of the 'Mech Pack content has yet been delivered. If your 'Mech Pack content has been partially or fully delivered prior to the refund request, particularly in cases where some or all of that content has been consumed or used since its delivery, refund eligibility is not guaranteed and must first be evaluated and approved by Support services.
