Is there some common theme to the mechs selected that I'm not seeing?

You can try contacting support and seeing if they'll refund the difference. They're usually pretty kind about refunding the sale price of purchases made 1-2 days before a sale on that item/mech.

I just bought 6 engines right before this. :(

Does anybody have a good loadout for the UM-R80?

DATA just posted a video on R80 with 2xSNPPC + ECM + JJ.

As a MWO Comp top player, DATA said this R80 build felt...overpowered...

I guess for the sake of consistency they cannot be left out but I have to laugh at the irony of putting on sale all those nerfed lights and the Viper... if you didn't have them before why would you pick them now that they're worse? LOL.
Mech bays though? Those are very welcome...

Assault snipers will always wish to nerf anything that challenges them

Now, as far as calling this "science"... hasn't "science" suffered enough these last 2 years.

Please stop trying to be cute with "science".

You aren't following "the science" when you follow "the meta".

You ARE:
1. doing what you are told
2. using a style of play that usually most benefits someone else, instead of maximizing your own strengths and individual style
3. Not learning to build your own mechs, which is an essential skill (builds, tactics, technical skills)
4. relying upon statistics, styles of play, tactics and relative power that changes at the whim of a few players

Most importantly, you can have fun developing your own mechs. That is a big reason to play MWO.

It is nice to see other people use your builds, granted. However, thinking there is a BEST mech for everyone, is one-size-fits-all silliness..

Point 3. is something a lot of people suck at so pointing them into the right direction or giving them some Tips & Hints isn't all that bad IMHO :)

When I go into the items for sale it says 50% off in the store for some of the weapons but not all. However, I could swear some of them that don't say 50% are still 50% off. Can someone confirm that all weapons/engines are 50% off?

Also I noticed there is stealth/fiber and light fiber armor that you can buy for super cheap there have no clue what that even does, I'm guessing it's just you're buying the "points" of armor that sometimes you have to pay in cbills for increasing the armor on a new mech?

When it comes to Science & Knowledge, isn't there some quoting involved too? Possibly... Kind of like this... ;)

Me too! Thumbs-Up to PGI's MWO Team for this, and 'Daeron Katz' in particular for being at the forefront to announce it! :D

Eh... "cruel"??? Are you completely sure you're not meaning to say "crael" there? :P

(Sorry... I know already... Bad Pun... simply could not resist!!!)

I am not PGI Staff at all, but yes, I can confirm Weapons/Engines are. I keep track of prices like these, and they're most certainly all half-off right now. Enjoy having a chance to purchase ALL of those Consumables, Weapons, and Engines at half the normal (C-Bills) prices! B)

That's very much exactly what it is. How does it feel to be able and have the chance for grabbing any type of Armor which you want on a discount? :)






...and then I'll grab a rocket in order to launch out the door again after this scientifically-related interjection. I think my ears hear the MechTechs from my Mech Garage are calling me, but it seems I'm having trouble hearing what they're saying. Sadly it seems to sound angry, so either I've upset them, or they're needing me to settle yet another argument... oh bother... I thought that was all handled by now! :unsure:
