Kudos to Piranha for organizing this. Not only is this a good deed but a community is built around it as well.

This is cool. With cancer eventually solved we will be able to move to safely switching on regeneration. It's a shame there are so many people in the world who are anti-science. I say they should probably get de-prioritised on the treatment waiting lists because of all the people they caused to horribly suffer and die.

Great that they have raised so much money from this, and great that people have contributed. But when I see that this mech provides a 10% EXP boost, I must admit I wonder if that could have something to do with the success...

Menigmand - there are multiple other mechs, including, I believe, a similar one with the 10% xp boost. That are equally only available to purchase for real money.

Menigmand - I've never even used my Sarah's mech as already had an identical founders version which gives me a 25% C-Bill bonus which is much more useful to me. You really wouldn't buy the mech for the 10% xp. ;)

This is a very cute design with good equipment on a Jenner D. I'm a Legendary Founder for MWO, and Phoenix backer as well. I've dropped a fair share of cash into this franchise. Sarah will always be remembered.

I really think this was pushed on the devs by the community. The father, or someone who knew the story, asked for it, and it blew up on the forums and among the clans. There was alot of pressure and when it was delayed for legal reasons there was alot of negativity on the forums. At any rate, great that they actually did it. We were all surprised by how much was made, there are nights when there are hardly any people dropping in groups. The mech itself is pretty good, wish you could paint over children's decals though.
