Great!

The Sun Spider is one of my favourite 'Mechs! I already own both Sun Spider Hero 'Mechs.

I am seriously tempted to buy this 'Mech Pack. Posted Image

EDIT:
"Ambush", welcome home!

Gonna be that guy and say I wish it were any other mechs. The two OC mechs have enough hero variants.

The 'Mech Pack page has a typo: The Roughneck stats column - "2 Ballisitic" hardpoints. Posted Image

Purchased. "Good hunting" just became "Better hunting." Strong work, PGI folks!

What are the start/end dates for this being available?
Is there a bonus period? What is the end date for a bonus period?
When will it be available again?
Will it be the S variant later, or non-quirked?
What are the quirks for the mech?
How soon might the quirks change?
What's the deal with refunds?
When will it all be injected in-game?

A year ago, there were a lot of loyalty rewards I didn't qualify for - e.g. 2 clan packs and 2 IS packs, etc. And the rewards were pretty sweet; L variants that you can't normally get. That was very cool.
This past year, I bought a wider variety of things, and then the loyalty rewards event this year was extremely scaled back, in terms of number of different things you could qualify for. What was there was indeed cool, but a lot less choice (no choice) and the head count of free mechs was far less than Nov 2020.
I'm kind of wishing now that I'd spent less this past year. And perhaps more the year before that. Would have made a big difference.
Any word on what things will look like in the future?
I'm reluctant to spend without knowing what may come from year to year.

1. Anything in the "Stores" webpage is available for the foreseeable future!
https://mwomercs.com/store

2. Both 'Rival' Heros are already ingame; you can view it in the ingame [Store]>>[Select_Mech]>>[View_In_Mechlab] and you can see its quirks as well this way!

3. I'm very excited that the Roughneck Bolt Hero Mech has a total of 4x ballistic hardpoints in its LT/RT !!
AND it has dual Blood Asp-like high-shoulder ballistic hardpoints!!

4. I wish that the Atlas also gets this very same treatment, total of 4x ballistic hardpoints in its LT/RT !!
Would love to pay $$ for this Atlas Hero!!

Really tempting pack, especially since I have neither mech and want them both. 28 AUD seems pretty good for what the pack comes with, and the prices generally nowadays are a lot more fair than they seemingly used to be (given stuff like the a la carte system exists). Thanks for all of the holiday stuff, it's really fun working towards event completion and some cool rewards Posted Image

I like the hardpoints but I don't like that they're only available as heroes, considering how stronk they appear to be on paper. It's pretty clearly paying for power.

The Sun Spooder in particular was a real opportunity to give everybody energy in the RT and non-paywalled energy in the LT, but now that's gonna make the gap between C-Bill SNS's and MC SNS's a lot larger.

Excellent choices. Nice to see the original PGI mech designs getting attention. And both have hardpoints that open up new playstyles for these Chassis (especially the SNS due to being omnipods.)

2BS in each side torso is huge on a heavy mech. The new Roughneck is a nice alternative to the Warhammer Black Widow.

And now the SNS can finally get enough energy hardpoints to do Laservomit like the other comparable heavy omnimechs (if you use the Manul's arms, at least.)

(SNS need more quirk attention to be on par with EBJ, HBR and TBR still though. Cauldron has given them some attention, but hopefully they will do their pod level quirks soon.)

EDIT: Also, the SNS-AMB's thumbnail appears to be bugged. Its showing as an Executioner. Not sure if this is just me?

As an aside:
Really thought I wasn't going to spend any more money on this game this year, but if Daeron and Phil (and/or other members of the community) put on a terrible used car lot commercial for this roughneck, I don't know how I could say no.
I just don't know if Phil's cowboy hat game is on point enough for that... mine is not, but perhaps he is a well-prepared man.

I wonder if Blue or another streamer would do a voice-over for the sexy sophistication and style of the Sun Spider... from Streaks to Slamming Shells of Steel into Sad Sap Stragglers, UnacCepting of Surrenders as you are Serenaded by their Screams while Sipping your Sassicaia Sensuously... or you know, something like that.

I don't think the Sunspider is gonna need any quirks; with the new hero, it's possible to load 2x Hvy LLs and 6x ER MLs on Cockpit level mounts; meaning that the Sunspooder can peak with a 71 Alpha Strike @ 400+ meters pretty handily. Still want ECM? 2x Hvy LL; 4x Hvy ML. 72 Firepower @ 270 meters.

If anything, this new mech might just take the Hellbringer off it's long standing throne.
