    Updated the list, but I won't have an idea of what clan mechs to put up on the block till the salvage packs come in.

    I'll need to actually decide which Lances I'm getting to fill in those fields but won't the Salvage Boxes change everything? People will either have more mechs they don't want or luckily receive the odd one they've been wanting.

    I'll have to take a look and fill it in when I get home. I'm basically after the mechs I used the most in MechWarrior 4, because nostalgia. And mainly the SCat. Because that's my kink.

    And I guess I'll make sure I get a Dragon in @DaMoonRulz's name.

    I was about to say both of these. Plus I'm not sure if I'm going to sit where I am and hope that I can do a good trade with someone here, or move up and have a ton more mechs for the trade block.

    I'm making sure I get all the mechs I want in the packs. There will be some I don't want 2 of, but not many. Once I get the clan mechs in I'll have at least a few to trade for other dupes I want.

    I think the idea right now is, for instance, I might say, "Oh hey Hydro wants these 'mechs from these two packs, and I want all the others! We can coordinate and one buy one pack and the other buy the other, then just swap mechs once we get them all."

    Obviously Salvage boxes are going to be a game changer, and hell it's entirely possible someone who doesn't want a given mech will actually get it and go, "oh damn actually I really like this sculpt, I think I wanna keep it."

    We're just in alpha phase, to raise awareness that this is a thing that some folks are interested in doing.

    Yea I'll definitely be interested, I think I'd basically trade away every clan mech other than the Mad Cat and Shadow Cat, just saying I don't think I'll really know what I want and what I have to trade until March next year.

    Yeah, this whole trade post thing is a long-term project, specifically because the Salvage Packs will hold their secrets until they're in our grubby mitts. This is just groundwork, since I was already coordinating something similar for my IRL friends.

    For me, the question will be how many blind boxes I'll end up with. I'm thinking it won't be too many.

    So my Bravo Assault lance I've decided is underweight (King Crab, Stalker, Archer, Dragon). I've decided to do some rotation. Gonna add a Longbow, then move the Dragon to Bravo Fire (Centurion, Hunchback, Bushwhacker, Trebuchet). That's the lance I currently am least likely to be able to get all the members of (Bushwhacker is the only one I'm definitely getting), so the Trebuchet can just stay in there for now.

    It also makes Bravo Fire lance a mixed autocannon lance accented with LRMs.

    That would be Alpha Scout lance. On purpose.

    Although honestly I vastly prefer Bravo Scout lance. Sentinel -3KA (LL, SL, SRM-2), Raven -2X (LL variant), and 2 Griffin -1NS (LL, LRM-10) It's a scout lance with enough range that it can operate a bit further from its company and still contribute effectively (which is good, because Bravo Assault and Fire lances have a lot of LRMs).

    I always put these things off to the last minute, so just backed for $340 so I don't forget it.

    But some quick napkin math tells me I want more Stars/Lances than the 12 I have now.

    Gosh darned it. There's not a million miles to $600. Six Stars/Lances is $150, Dropship is $45 and I had planned for a few extra challenge coins so that covers $30 more. If only you could choose the Elemental pack instead of a Star, as I have been debating myself on whether I need more tiny tin mans.

    I guess the final question is if I want the world to see my ugly mug re-imagined in mechwarrior form.

    And I know darn well now it's going to eat at me that if I just, you know, double that I could put my character in. The only thing stopping me from putting my old character in is I don't think there's going to be any reasonable room for more Kerensky bloodnames in the fiction, it's just unnecessary to have my self insert.

    We're 95% to hit 2 million. The shape of the line of most (all?) comparable kickstarters has an upward tail at the end as the fence-sitters and remind-me backers get in on the action. I'd say the over/under is around 2.125. And if I allow my withered soul some hope, it could be quite a bit higher. Some of the successful physical piece kickstarters like the Dark Souls board game and the Dwarven Forge sets add 50% or more of their 28 day total in the last two days. Catalyst should announce attractive stretch goals for 2.125 and 2.25 before the remind-me folks get their emails from KS.

    Average backing is still going up, and is now over $226. I do expect that to go down at the end, as a higher volume of less committed backers get in, and if we hit 2 million and a bunch of folks come in for Comstar + 1 IS lance to get a free Urbie.
