Make My Mech Special (MMMS): +30% CBills Bonus for your favorite mechs

Propose any account may buy up to four (4) such custom MMMS, to imbue your standard variant mech & standard variant OmniMech CT with +30% CBills Bonus.

eg:
WHM-7S standard variant ==> WHM-7S(M) with +30% CBills Bonus!
BAS-A standard variant ==> BAS-A(M) with +30% CBills Bonus!
HBK-IIC-A standard variant ==> HBK-IIC-A(M) with +30% CBills Bonus!


Costs & Implementation:
~Must be limited number of your favorite mechs for MMMS, otherwise this may decrease desire for Special Variants and/or Hero mechs.

1st MMMS: 3,000 MC
2nd MMMS: 6,000 MC
3rd MMMS: 12,000 MC
4th MMMS: 18,000 MC
5th MMMS: 24,000 MC
<Max of four (5) MMMS per account>

Sounds legit. Posted Image
Make my mech into a +30% cBill grinder for the low low price of about the same as buying a mech pack… since that’s the only way to get them currently. Only this would let you make any mech have that bonus… like the one you play all the freaking time!

Dear MWO, thank you for listening to player feedback, to convert some of the popular mechs into Special Variant with +30% CBills !!

So any update on this pay $$ (and eventually MC at a later stage) for this MMMS (Make My Mech Special) proposal?
https://mwomercs.com...-favorite-mechs

Now that MWO had just announced Special Variant of MAL-2P(S) & MAD-IIC-A(S), I for one would be willing to pay $$ and MC to make my KDK-3(S) with +30% CBills bonus!!!

My own personal MMMS (Make My Mech Special) shopping list:
KDK-3(S)
MAD-IIC-D(S)
MCII-B(S)
PIR-2(S)
MAD-1P(S) ==> this is not a typo
COR-7A(S)

I mean, this could totally be an interesting monetization program, I think the issue is that they don't have a dev to code that in..

I like it, gets more money for PGI, adds value for the end user. I'd say the prices you propose are a little too steep though. Maybe a little less MC 1500, 3k etc. or buy "packs" i.e. make 3 MMS for the low price of 4k or something. Good idea!

Why limit the number? Make the price lower with no limit to how many can be done, and occasionally put it on sale. That'll incentivize people to do it for lots of mechs and really milk those whales.

Make it 1,500 MC. And give the option to buy the existing (S) variant skin for that chassis for 500MC on any mech that has (S) unlocked. Then do an occasional 50% off sale on upgrading to (S) variant.

People who want to run only mechs with c-bill bonuses already can. This just means they don't only have to do it on existing (S) or hero mechs.

(Also worth noting that (S) variants are technically their own entry in the game files. So it's not a modifier that can just be added to anything. But if/when they have an engineer again, they could probably make some method to get it, like a hidden 4th cockpit item slot or something with a locked 30% cbill bonus item.)

I would limit it to be $10 max, since that's what I consider the most I would spend for a single mech and it should probably come with some Premium time and MC.

If you look at the new Rivals Pack, that is about the price per mech already.
