@^: Bi-Monthly = Once every two months, not two times every month...?
Although on paper it looks like we get "more" compared with all the other games, in-game, it seems we get very little. Many of the mechs are the same thing, except NSC, SC, NG, in that increasing power level.
Also, I think what makes us feel that SC-ship grants least is that all other games have many member benefits. DF has you being able to utilize THE HIGHEST level weapons and stuff, and non-Dlord stuff can't compare. How about some GREAT classes to go with Dlord? Training your Dragon? Titan Fights? WAY better equipment, AT LEAST on par with Dragoncoins?
But in MQ, NG>SC most of the time. Seriously. And in AQW, ACs > Membership.
I wonder why many people feel that DLord was the best purchase they ever made...
But back to SC Monthly: Please, please, please! Make a new SCMM. I mean, since I upgraded, we have gotten NO new SCMM. Part of the reason I upgraded was because I liked the idea of SCMM, and couldn't wait to reap the benefits of having SC-only powerful mechs. But since I upgraded, 0. YES, 0 SCMM have been released, and that's saddening. Although I do NOT feel like my $25 (5000 AP) were wasted, I do feel that MQ could strive to give SC more "noticeable" benefits.
And MQ Staff, please make a pitch to the head of AE, Cysero? Or is it still Artix? I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure Cysero took over..., anyway, please make a pitch to them to give you guys a bunch of staff members back, even if only for a few months. I see so much potential in MQ, and with a fully abundant staff, I believe that even a few months overhauling some of MQ will make MQ so much better.
