    Deadfire and Sean Lang posted up this link on the NGNG TS3 server.


    4 new mechs, unique variants for those who buy into this, each of the mechs comes with its own mechbay.
    So, the $80 comes with 90 days premium time, 1 unique variant of each of the new mechs, plus 2 standard variants of each of the new mechs, that is 20 mechs all up, plus 20 mechbays to house them all, plus 4 in cockpit medallions.
    That is a lot for $80

    I like it. Rather I love it. The more mechs the better. Game play is getting better with each patch, and more balanced. The only issue I have is that it doesn't let you choose mechs. I'm an assault pilot after my test pilot job, and now I have to fork over $80, or wait 4 months, for the Battlemaster....

    :angry:


    That being said.... I probably will...

    :unsure:

    As someone who did not get to take advantage of the Founder's program I am kinda glad I didn't because I don't feel so bad about forking 80 bucks over since I don't have 4 foundr mechs already staring me down :p

    Im glad AND sad to see this happen.

    Glad because wow Project Phoenix mechs (RE-Re-Seen apparently). Hope for Macross mechs? We will see but I would imagine they would stay away from those due to the litigation issues.

    Sad because I won't have the $80.00 to shell out for a package and will miss this opportunity.

    Glad because I will still be able to buy the production variants at some time down the road.

    Interesting that they basically do the founder's program again. The scope and cost of MWO must be increasing quite a bit which only makes sense as they have had that "now hiring" sign up for a while.


    On a side note, I can't believe the Battlemaster is inbound. hah!

    Link to a tech readout with the correct art and loadouts.

    I am very pleased with this news. PGI is about to get some more of my money. Curse them and their wicked marketing schemes. The Thunderbolt is my favorite mech, hence the pic in my Sig.

    I'm having serious trouble holding back my impulse buyer moments with this sale, especially since I got more money than usual and the game is probably only going to get better anyway and...

    oh damn i lost. Must have.

    @Micheal: Special charity donation set up? xD

    I ordered my Overlord Tier pack just had to with USD to GBP exchange rate that is good value for £50 which is pretty much the cost of a single new release PS3 game.


    Now just too long to wait :(

    $80 for 12 'mechs ($6.66/'mech) is what the going rate per 'mech should be. Therefore, I feel very... very tempted to pick this up.

    It is tempting as hell, considering the premium time included which is a fair bit of cash by itself. If you want premium time and plan to pick up 30 days may aswell go for the Talon package.

    However, I will consider the full Overlord kit aswell. Even though I jumped into Legendary as Founder (I certainly like all my founder mechs except the hunchback which I never spent enough time with). It's a lot of mechs as Archwright says. Plenty of fun time to tinker.

    Don't forget that all the mechs will come with their own Mech bays as well, so with the overlord pack, that is 12 extra mechbays, that is 3600MC right there.

    I'm getting my paycheck next week, so I'll probably get it. I actually think $80 is worth it since you get 12 mech bays along with the mechs and 120 days of premium.

    You only get 120 days of premium time if you buy the package today, otherwise it is only 90 days.

    This has all the hallmarks of a money-grab...
    Having said that, I bought it anyway ^_^

    Not sure if I'm just that gullible, but I really do want this game to succeed. Still, I have noted of late a troubling tendency to see the same players over and over again in my drops -- something I wasn't seeing a month ago.

    PayPal button has been pressed... The Jerol will wait & see...

    The deadline for the early-bird 30 day premium time bonus is in a month - 25th July - not 25th June.

    Finally I get my Locust and Shadow Hawk! Finally 55 tons! I am a bit taken back at the detail on the Locust, however, just a 170 max engine? After speed tweek that would put it at about 150ish I am hoping? Honestly I was hoping for something that could be all engine that I could slap a Bosephus sticker on and become a blur, but I suppose that will be the Flea eventually. Am not a heavy or assault pilot all that much so am for sure getting the Storm tier so I can have the two mechs I want the most from this.
