The second phase of the event starts in three days. Then you will be able to earn the next batch of the loot bags.

Wow, ...

(Pro Tip: Assault/Heavy mechs cost more than Light/Medium mechs, so perhaps...)
Has anyone made a list, of the available heromechs suitable as rewards for this event, SORTED by their cost in MC, starting with the most expensive first ?

1) You can go to the Store and create that list yourself.

2) It is immaterial how many MCs some Hero 'Mech costs.The important thing is to choose a Hero 'Mech that will be fun to play for you, even if such Hero 'Mech is MC-cheap.

How come you don't have a Sleipnir yet, man? Go get one.

It's important to pick the most expensive one from your priority list. If you pick a less expensive one now and buy a more expensive one when it goes on sale, you're still at a net loss compared to doing it the other way. Frankly, choosing anything less than a heavy in this scenario is just wasting resources.

Sure, but it would be a nonsense to pick a 'Mech that you are probably not going to use, just because it costs a lot of MCs.
Some dedicated light 'Mech pilot should rather pick a good light Hero and have fun actually using it often, instead of picking some 100-ton assault 'Mech that will catch the dust in his garage.

But maybe I want a dusty 100-ton assault 'Mech in my garage!

Then you have many 'Mechs to choose from. Posted Image

PGI may prevent that a light pilot wins a UV and decides to switch from the dark to the light side ;-P

Agreed.

A player who limits themselves in that manner is, intentionally or not, self-sabotaging as this practice will leave his understanding of enemy capabilities - and therefore the battlefield as a whole - sorely lacking.

I wish there is a way to filter cockpit items for CBills/XP bonus boosted items!
(Hope MWO is listening!)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
CBills & XP boosted Cockpit Items (both Hanging + Standing):
http://mwomercs.com/store

CBills Bonus Hanging Cockpit Items
Mag Pouch (Stryker Pack pre-order)
Ballistic Goggles (Warden Pack pre-order)
Fingerless Gloves (Hunter Pack pre-order)
Predator Pendant (Predator Pack pre-order)
Bloodname Pendant (Bloodname Pack pre-order)
Crusader Hanging Item (Crusader Pack pre-order)
2021 Annual Rewards [Hanging] Item (2021 Annual [Loyalty] Rewards & another Event gifted this)


CBills Bonus Standing Items
2021 TSP Standing Item (Tournament Supporter Pack cockpit bonus item--it was never advertised as CBills boosted!)
+5% CBills Hologram standing cockpit item (2018/2019/2020 Annual [Loyalty] Rewards)


CBills + XP Hanging & Standing Cockpit Items
Any Platinum Collection (within its promotion Event timeframe only)
Civil War twin packs
Civil War: Escalation twin packs
Evolution twin packs


CBills Hanging & Standing Cockpit Items
IS & Clan New Player Bundles


I have two Hanging Cockpit Items that give 5% bonuses called "C-Bill Medallion - IS Only" and "C-Bill Medallion - Clan Only"

Confusingly, there are identically named "C-Bill Medallion" items that don't give any bonus.

Also, if you sort by price ascending, they should show up at the start of the list because you can't buy them with MC

Different people play the game for different reasons. There's so much more in life to be genuinely concerned with than MWO game performance.

ok I have been playing the last couple of days and I cant get any further than the 100 0f 100 pick a prize thingy, what am I missing? already opened 150 loot bags, cant get anymore through quick matches nor factions matches.

"beach party loot bags phase 1" and "a day at the beach" are at 100% completed and redeemed.

I am obviously missing a detail but cant point my finger at it, any help clearing things up?

You can only earn 150 lootbags from Phase 1. Wait for Phase 2.

What about this: https://mwomercs.com...s?t=202207beach

I'm at 150 of 200 (or of 250 or of 300, however one cares to read it). Am I stuck at 150 until Phase 2? Is that what you mean?

Edit #2: haha, I can "Like" my own post? even by accident...

Phase 1 can get you only 150 lootbags from playing, yes. You can get more, of course, by buying anything that rewards bonus lootbags.
