I was excited about this game, but the more info that comes out about the business model the more it sounds like world of tanks, which is not a good thing.

The part that gets me is;

Three-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.

"Premium" status should be permanently given to all players that choose to pay, like VIP status in Tribes: Ascend, and there shouldn't be anything that artificially increases in-game rewards (C-Bills, I'm assuming).

I'm pretty sure the premium status is copied from World of Tanks, where it boosts the rate at which you accumulate credits. I think you can also buy premium status in-game without spending real money, but not having played the game I don't know the details. (EDIT: That's referring to World of Tanks, not MWO)

$120 for 4 bonus mechs? At the very least it should have been 1>2>4 mechs for each package. And no real bonus to speak of for anyone that drops $30? That's just ridiculous. As much as I'm looking forward to this game this is upsetting if it is the path they plan on following.

Drop Legendary to 50 bucks Elite to 40 bucks and leave vet at 30 and you'd have a deal, but so far I'm really not overly convinced with Mechwarrior Online.
