What is a “hero” mech relative to a non-hero? Does matchmaking keep people with and those without hero mechs separated? I haven’t played this game since beta either.

They explained it to me down below. I think “hero” means it earns extra currency in matches. Have you ever played World of Tanks? It sounds a lot like their premium tanks. The ones you can only buy and then you get extra currency. Sounds like the same deal but I don’t know a thing about MWO.

I did bother to download the game, do the tutorial, play (and win) a match and redeem this thing so…we’ll see I guess. I had a good enough time where I may play a few more. I’ve been itching for a shooter and this seems improved over my short time in beta.

Aside from the currency bonus, on occasion the hero mech has hardpoints that cater to a particular meta at the given time it was made available or provided hardpoints that didnt exist with the current variations of the model.

Anyone who plays this know if the mechs are any good? Or are they junk?

They’re going to be at least decent mechs. We have to wait and see if they will be more than that. You should get them anyway because heroes come with a 30% cBill-Bonus letting you earn more virtual creds per match.

Roughnecks are tough and take alot of damage, dont know about the Clan mech because its not released yet in the game. Either way its worth playing one game for it. Also you have to login to their website to claime the stocking stuffer things. That will net you more cbills, mc and cockpit items.

There’s no way to know for sure because they haven’t been released yet.

But it’s TWO Heavy Hero ‘Mechs – one each IS and Clan.
That’s a significant gift, even if you just strip them for parts to outfit your other ‘Mechs.

Thanks. I haven’t touched the game since beta so I wouldn’t bother to download and play the game again if it was some starter ship.

I might with this.

Considering how well Roughnecks perform in the game currently, they are most definitely not starter mechs. And being hero mechs both mechs have a +30% cbill bonus, well worth buying for real money imho, never mind being given free on this event :).

The sun spider, im not sure how itll perform, just from the grahpics alone, i think itll have good hit boxes and the base hardpoints are conducive to asymmetrical builds, which a lot of vets do to maximize survivablity.

Thanks for all the responses guys – I downloaded the game and plan on hopping into tonight.
