Many of these sponsors are trying to sell their mechs chassis. Those are listed at 50% discount to the mechs purchase price and will be called "Sponsor mechs" for the rest of this post. If you buy a mech using the sponsor 50% discount there are a few restrictions...
- You may only sell a sponsor mech back to that sponsor for the same purchase price. So you can't buy it for 50% discount then sell it to the marketplace for 75% .
- You can not sell a sponsor mech to another player.
- You may not modify a sponsor mech in any way. They are trying to sell their product, not some Frankenstein version of it.
- Some of the chassis listed have a letter or numbers after them, such as Warhammer S&D. This means you can buy any variant of the Warhammer Chassis that ends with an "S "or a "D". If there is no letter or number you may buy any variant of that chassis you wish.
One final sponsor rule, You can never sell a mech for Profit back to the marketplace. You can sell for profit to another player so long as it is not a Sponsor mech. There are some combinations of Stables and Sponsors that might allow a player to infinitely buy and sell mechs for profit playing the percentage game. The best you can ever do is gain 100% of your purchase price back on a mech.
Remember some sponsors are faction specific, and you must be a member to gain the sponsor. Also there is a 2 sponsor limit for your character.
There is also a penalty for dropping a sponsor. (-4 CP, -2 Fame, -450,000 CBills)
