You didn't get the ANH-1E for 70,199cbs. The winner paid 122,015cbs.

Barry, if that was you again...

It's obscene that any player has that kind of cash. Both of you. I wonder if we shouldn't cut payments to 1600+ ELO players to 1/10th of what they are.

Then again, fixing Astech from being so cheap would probably help too.

I do like the giant cash sink that the BM is now on rare units.

Well, to be fair, my faction did loan me $25000 to help try to get the mek. We figured it was better than it going to another faction.

I'm really just musing. I am not going to propose a 90% lay cut to any players.

Yes I got the ANH-1E.

There were other players with enough cbills to outbid me. They chose not to bid more. Now they have more cbills than I do.

The first ANH-1E died in its 5th game. Zilla did something the other players did not. He charged straight at the ANH with all 4 meks and ignored the easier shots on closer meks. Spanish played against it first and was the second closest to killing it.

And yes I will continue to put cash into buying uncommon or rare units on the market. I put this bid in today, "You bid 1,515 CBills for the FLE-4 (-20flu)". Anyone else bid on it? I've also bought two HOP-Cs, a Norris M1-A8, and some others that many players would refuse to play as units if they could. They'd spend cbills to donate those units.

I have the ANH-1E.... come and get it.

I killed it, I just got an engine kill rather than a CT kill.
