In memory of a young fan, Piranha Games offers a limited edition custom Jenner mech, with 100% of proceeds going to a cancer research fund.

Five year old Sarah Parries loved to play MechWarrior Online with her dad, Jon, but passed away from cancer earlier this year. Her friends in-game spread the word, and in response to a petition, Piranha Games launched a memorial fund.

The resulting Sarah’s Mech Jenner – Sarah’s favourite model – has a suitably customised exterior and a 10% XP boost. It’s on sale for $10 until August 20, when it will be withdrawn from sale forever. Minus transaction costs, all sales go straight to the Canadian Cancer Society. The community has already pledged $30,000 at time of writing.

as annoying as this game is, this story is really cool
i bought the jenner awhile ago and i hardly even play it anymore

 

ball0fire,

This has been my go to game for close to 6 months now, I still really enjoy it. The basic combat has a hell of a lot of depth to me.
That aside, this being awesome is about the only thing the MW:O community agrees on. Will be getting it even though the Jenner isn’t my favorite mech.

 

Dr. Royal , Raymond , Rife has already cured cancer with his Rife machine and Rife scope so i won’t be supporting any cancer charity unless they say we have the 100% cure and were treating people with it.

 

just used my sarahs jenner for the first time tonight.

kicked ass . 2 kills 4 assists cap assist and numerous compment destructions
