    So like, The Boys, but with slightly less psychotic tendencies

    Isn't The Boys that super-edgelord superhero comic by Garth Ennis? The one that's basically like "I detest superhero comics, but that's where the money is so here, I'm gonna shit all over this genre and you'll eat it up"?

    Also, I picked to wait and have all my stuff shipped at one time with Wave 2, but a large box was delivered today. Gonna be inspecting that real closely to make sure there weren't any other mistakes.

    So I got another email from a different support rep about my problem. This one is saying he can give me $20 catalyst store credit. So I dunno if I'm still getting a dude in the mail as well or if I just get some credit

    Can the credit be applied to your Wave 2 order? You could just tack on another IS Command Lance.

    No. Just store credit for the site. Not exactly sure what I even want or need from there. The kickstarter has me fully covered.

    That is weird customer service. I'm guessing that they probably don't have any extras to send out and realized this after they promised you the replacement, so changed it to store credit.

    Go to https://portal.crowdox.com and sign in (register with the same email you used for the Kickstarter), if it doesn't take you there immediately, click on Projects at the top. You should see a "Battletech" entry. Click on the "View Confirmation" button. It will take you to the survey that includes everything you ordered. All items will have either "Wave 1" or "Wave 2" after them. Digital rewards they haven't created yet have "When Finished" labeled on them. I forget if it shows if you selected one or two shipments for your order.

    Obviously the game box itself is a Wave 1 product that everyone gets at a minimum. But you may have selected single shipment on your order, which means none of your stuff will ship until after Wave 2 is complete if you had any Wave 2 stuff.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    There are reports of folks who did not elect for split shipping that say they've gotten Fedex emails. So just FYI, even if you didn't do separate waves, you may still have gotten separate waves. CGL is ... overwhelmed and making a lot of mistakes.

    @HydroSqueegee Take the credit I'll trade you my Marauder. Especially if it doesn't expire. There's a pretty good chance most/all of the 'mech packs will hit the store's site within a year or so.

    A little bit disappointing, but they did say that's what they were going to be. Only other option would have been to make salvage boxes Wave 2 only.

    Wave 2 salvage boxes will be from both waves, though they'll hopefully weight the wave 2 mechs a bit more heavily.

    Have they officially stated that somewhere? All the references I can find say salvage boxes are chosen from the Wave 1 Clan packs (no IS mechs Wave 1 or otherwise) with no mention of Wave 2 inclusions.

    There's a small handful between the 3055 and 3058 (basically the Linebacker and a couple of the 3058s) that look close enough for me, especially over the Gargoyle/Executioner

    While I chose to wait rather than get split shipping, it looks like all my wave 1 stuff is there, and all the boxes seem to be packed correctly.

    My Salvage boxes:
    • Grayson Carlyle's Marauder (I got the pack of all 4 legendaries, so I'm willing to trade this if someone wants it)
    • Timber Wolf (Mad Cat)
    • Stormcrow (Ryoken)
    • Nova (Black Hawk)
    • Mist Lynx (Koshi)
    • Ice Ferret (Fenris)

    I'll update the spreadsheet soonish, just figured I'd drop that here.

    I know I originally said I'd trade my Urbie, but looking at it now... I think I'll keep it. I wasn't a big fan when they were kinda just R2-D2 with a gun, but the more articulated look they've got in MWO and the new Catalyst stuff has grown on me.

    Yep! which is cool with me. The original 16 are the only ones that really captured my imagination in the days of yore.

    I chose packs that could cover multiple of my top picks in a single pack, and as it happens a lot of those are in Wave 1. But that doesn't cover all my favs as there are several packs that I only really care about one of them, so I wouldn't mind a small chance to randomly pull one of those from Wave 2 sets also.

    As far as the originals go, I only kinda liked the Timber Wolf/Mad Cat and Dire Wolf/Daishi.

    The Ebon Jaguar/Cauldron Born was probably my favorite Omni of them all though, I can't put my finger on why.

    WAVE ONE GUARANTEE DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 15TH
    So if you plan to pick up anything else from the wave 1 stuff, make sure you get your order finalized in the next week or two. Guessing the sooner the better, because their "guarantees" haven't been ... amazing. Also make sure you check/update the trade sheet (LINK) since that may come into play.

    With the extra swag I want, I have enough left over that I'm picking up the IS Urban lance. So, with that in mind, this is my most up-to-date want/trade list (I also updated the trade sheet)
    WANT LIST wrote:
    In order of preference
    - Dragon (IS Support)
    - Centurion (IS Heavy)
    - Blackjack (IS Striker)
    - Jenner (IS Striker)
    If you have one of these you don't want, and want something from my Trade list, let me know, I'll probably be down.
    - Mongoose (Comstar Battle)
    - Linebacker (Clan Support)
    - Warhawk (Clan Fire)
    - Mad Dog (Clan Heavy Striker)
    - Viper (Clan Heavy Striker)
    - Guillotine (Comstar Battle)
    - Wolfhound (IS Striker)
    - Crockett (Comstar Battle)
    TRADE LIST wrote:
    - Timber Wolf (Clan Retaliation/Box Set)
    - Executioner (Clan Retaliation/Box Set)
    - Grendel (Clan Retaliation/Box Set)
    - Nova (Clan Retaliation/Box Set)
    - Elemental x1 (Clan Retaliation/Box Set)
    - Mist Lynx (Clan Command/Salvage Box)
    - Supernova (Clan Heavy)
    - Piranha (Clan Striker)
    - Horned Owl (Clan Striker)
    - Longbow (IS Fire)
    - Black Knight (Comstar Command)
    - Exterminator (Comstar Command)
    - Victor (IS Urban)

    tl;dr if you're interested in any but not all mechs from the IS Striker, Clan Heavy, Clan Heavy Striker, Clan Striker, or either Comstar lances, hmu.
