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.

The easy way to do it would be to just make more money-boosting cockpit items, and give them larger bonuses.

The one "downside" from PGI's PoV is that people could stack this with existing hero/special variants to get an even bigger bonus (which I'm okay with but our overlords might not want us making too many space dollars).

But then it'll still just be better to put those on hero mechs and continue to not play other variants :(

Sold!
(By the way, you can 'Gift' these Platinum packs too!)

Thank you for listening, MWO/PGI !!!

1. Thank you for bringing back the Gold oops... Platinum mechs!

2. Thank you for bring back the +30% CBills bonus Special Variants or:
Hunchback HBK-4P(P) ==> from Steam Mech Performance Pack
Catapult CPLT-K2(P) ==> similar to the one from MW5 Pre-order (but I still want the other 4 models**!)
Atlas AS7-D-DC(P) ==> I've always wanted a +30% CBills bonus variant!!

Note: ** The MW5 Pre-order special variants that I also want are: KGC-001(S), MAD-9M(S), WHM-9D(S), CPLT-C2(S)

Actually hoping for +CBills Bonus Warhorns too!

Actually I've also bought additional New Player Packs for its total +10% CBills Bonus hanging/standing cockpit items, to go with my above Platinum (P) mechs!

I have a small question. The P designation. That was for Phoenix pak mechs. That was one of the very first mech paks to come out. I still have the original paint job on my Phoenix mechs. Now they are relegated to the trash bins, thrown away like so much rubbish. (snif)

The Platinum Event rewards a Hanging and Standing XP Booster item? Has anything like that been available before, or just C-Bill Booster Cockpit items? Anyone know how much of a bonus they provide, like +5% XP or something?

Seems like a nice little boost to skilling up new mechs if that's the case.

I would of preferred House/Clan Star/Unit color schemes similar to MW5 over plain silver.. Clan wolf, Jade, Bear etc.. Steiner regulars, Davion Crucis lancers, Kurita ghosts etc..

Now i'd pay money on those.

I have many of these, so it's safe for me to reply from experience:
~Hanging CBills cockpit item: +5% CBills bonus (stackable with Standing cockpit item!)
~Standing CBills cockpit item: +5% CBills bonus (stackable with Hanging cockpit item!)
~Hanging XP cockpit item: +5% XP bonus (stackable with Standing cockpit item!)
~Standing XP cockpit item: +5% XP bonus (stackable with Hanging cockpit item!)

Don't feel bad... I'm still jealous, I want that Battlemaster BLR-1G(P) which is still one of the best mechs for FP long range deck... and it's got that +5% Faction Loyalty Reputation points bonus!

I wanted to be able to buy a metallic color and apply it to mechs I like. Out of 8 mechs, I like maybe two of those, and I already have them built the way I wanted. Honestly, this sucks.

There's only one problem I see with this pack: The Atlas for the pack should've been a House Steiner variant instead of Draconis Combine. Why? Because House Steiner is canonically the richest of the great houses, many of it's mech pilots driving Altases are from wealthy merchant families or house nobility, and I think there was even a canonical actual House Steiner unit who's commander had a gold and platinum plated Atlas he drove around at one point.

I'm just saying, you guys might've missed a hilarious oppertunity to lean on obscure battletech canon here.

Too bad no one reads the lore especially our ESpurts overlords making things better. Don't get me started.

Thanks for the mechs and events.

Are we having an GSP or MC sale for the 4 to 8 not skilled mechs?

Ok, this does unlock the platinum paint job for all variants of that chassis. So, not as bad as I thought.

Confirm that the Platinum paint job can be applied to all variants of that chassis!

eg: AS7-K3(L), AS7-K, AS7-S(L), etc. are OK

==>Slight problem: AS7-D(F) founder atlas, with Platinum paint job, the Founder Atlas' head (left side + right side of the head) looks strange, due to hard coded custom paint job that prevents the newer Platinum paint job!
(All other Atlas models are OK; not everyone has a Founder Atlas!)
