EVENT OVERLOAD!!!!

I love it!

EDIT: Could you please add the legendary mechs to the sale? Those have the boosted XP as well, would make sense to have them in the sale and I'm eyeing that Scattershot...

The Legendary mechs are on sale for real money on the website so I’m guessing they won’t put the in game MC versions on sale too.

Can we get a word on whether the Bolt-On and Decal sales will be coming back?

We get those once a year, and having them cancelled before you can get what you wanted to buy, especially when you spent real money for MC to stock up for them sucked.
Plus, you mostly hit your long-term loyal players with that move, people who already had a significant amount of 'Mechs and have MC/money to spare for cosmetics.

I know, these two categories of items are problematic, too many bolt-ons overload the database and too many decals overload the graphics engine and cause flickering nightmares, especially when combined with some skins. But that's ALREADY a problem and needs fixing or at least a workaround, making those players unhappy that support you most isn't going to help get that done any faster.

I asked about it two weeks ago:

When can we expect the Decals and Bolt-Ons sale?

I am asking because the last Decals and Bolt-Ons sale in November had been cancelled after a few hours.


I got the following reply:

After the server issues we had, I'm going to look into a future Bolt-On and Decal sale and make sure it won't cause any problems first. Hopefully we can do something for the new year.

So maybe in January ...

Ah, the Soup Corundum.
Some people want to play with friends, and others will avoid any event that allows groups like the plague.
That being said, I'd agree with you, PGI needs to cater to both groups at times, and some 4v4, 6v6 duo and 8v8 double 4v4 group-only settings for the event queue would probably be a nice touch to do that, provided they announce it in advance to give people the opportunity to opt in or out in time.

Because you're right, good events bring in players.

I don't know if it was accidental or intentional but the fact that heroes and champions being on sale includes Champions amuses me tremendously.

It was a FREE MECH some time ago and a very decent Lights Hunter so I am guessing people are using the mech to kill those pesky Stealth Locust and Flea players hunting for that headshot ?! Posted ImagePosted Image

You can build the following loadout with it :
- TAG
- Light PPC
- 5 x Streak SRM2
- I think also a Beagle Active Probe but not sure...
- LFE Engine

And even Assault mechs will fear you! Posted ImagePosted Image
