WHAT IS PLATINUM COLLECTION?


Platinum Collections are comprised of 4 Platinum Mech Variants, 4 Mech Bays, and 4 Platinum Pattern Unlocks.

Secured in 4 Mech Bays, Your 4 Platinum Mechs are carefully selected variants upgraded with a (P) designation, elevating a Platinum Mech to Special Mech status with a 30% C-bill Boost. When you purchase a Platinum Collection you also unlock the Platinum Pattern for the Variants of the Chassis types included in the Platinum Pack.




PLEASE BE AWARE!
It should be noted here that we have discovered an issue with how Platinum Patterns look in some maps. We discovered that there were environment probes that were either not present or set up incorrectly. The good news is we have already addressed the majority of the maps for the upcoming March Patch. These fixes will also improve how every mech is lit and the overall lighting in the Maps!
More info on this will come with the 2022 roadmap post and Dev Log update coming out this week!

I doing downhill with the economy these days. Some eight years ago you had to pay 500$ to get a gold mech. Today you can get four platinum mechs for 20$! Hurry hurry, step right up!

If you're not using a calibrated monitor, the difference between the two is pretty much indistinguishable side by side.

1. When do these "go live"? If I buy does it hit today?
B. In the future will we have more flexibility in mech choices? Because there are mechs I play a lot and I put the C-bill items in them for that, but if I could pay like $35 and I got to pick my 4 mechs (same Clan/IS breakdown and 1 of each weight class) ... well that would be rather cool.
III. OK, so bought clan but not IS because none of those IS are ones I run a lot. I mean, same for clan side but I didn't have a Highlander IIC yet so now I do. :D
4. Yay for someone from PGI posting here. Double yay for Friday roadmap.
4. I already used 4, but still -- thanks!

This is perfectly timed, can't wait to try out the cat and the atlas :3
Not a fan of the orion/highlander designs, else I'd pick it up too.

For serious?

Edit.

I did the IS pack but purely to nudge the last of the last legs of this IP.

Roger that, and looking forward to hearing about what's ahead... Glad to see you're still alive. :D

(Not seeing posts from you in a while made me start to worry that EG7 had pulled something. :unsure: ...)

This has been something people have asked about so it isn't a surprise they'd test the waters and see what it brings. Personally I view it as a way to support the company to keep the game alive given there are no monthly fees or anything.

Why aren't they worth $1,000 a piece?

If this was a thing I could do where I could pick the mech Variants I would buy it but I don’t really have a use for a platinum catapult or Jenner or hunch back….. if there comes out a platinum commando 1D sign me up and I will buy day one. I would spend 20$ on one to two mechs if I could guarantee they would be chassis I would use a lot. +30% c bills would be so worth it.

This feels kind of pointless.

IMO it would've made more sense to add the platinum camo pattern to the store for all mechs, but then it wouldn't cost $20...

I've been asking for ways to get cbill bonuses on more mechs for awhile and at a more reasonable price than the collector's packs. Ideally, I would have wanted to be able to pay MC to give a bonus to any mech. But I understand that would require a bunch of engineering stuff that probably isn't available right now. So since that isn't possible, I am glad to be able to do it in any form. I also see this as a way to support the company and get more dev resources, so I hope that is the case.

I also think it would have been good to let us buy these a la carte, so please consider that in the future. I will buy the IS pack for the K2 and Atlas, but I'm not sure about the clan pack. I want the Orion-IIC, but I'm not sold on the rest.

Glad to see new content either way though!

And for future packs, please consider Marauder-5M and Marauder II (especially the MAD-4L). Will buy those regardless of what else is in there!
