  1. first. suck it. (dont be hater cause i am first)

    1. we don’t hate just think you are lame and sad for doing this

      1. nice a trolling hater. well good luck at sucking at life you are doing a great job

        1. You both are lame and act like 5yr olds.

    2. It is sad people have to put first and mess up the whole thread

  2. as i posted in the last 2 MWO topics il repost the third time as my own personal opinion on the game

    Terrible game only for hardcore mechwarrior fans who play in premade groups with teamspeak. go try it for 3 days and you will understand just how bad this game is its complete garbage and is no place for casual players, join game & under 5 minutes your whole team is dead all day everyday, no balance nothing, piss poor boring gameplay, pathetic excuse for mechs that aircraft and armored vehicles with the same tech would whoop these trash junk heaps, i mean comon these mechs feel obsolete! If you are really into trying to find a mech game just wait for hawken and exteel 2 which is under development atm. But all in all STAY AWAY FROM THIS RUBBISH GAME

    thank you for you time to read if you did

    1. this is my personal opinion /You/ are a moron of the highest caliber you have obviously NEVER played any of the mechwarrior games and this proves true for your lack of knowledge on how the game should be played Mechwarrior is not a run-and-gun shooter like the normal fps it takes REAL skill and strategy to play it is not suppose to be for casual gamers but for gamers who wish to use true strategic war tactics that go far beyond ‘quickscoping’ and ‘camping’ you always see in fps now-a-days your team gets killed in under five minutes? that is because your team is running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get as many kills as possible instead of working together to win while the other team more than likely is putting forth the effort to take you noobs down you’re not playing Gundam son these mechs are constructed in a time frame that is similar to ours except with abit more advanced technology these mechs are like tanks slow but powerful and when in the right hands can be a devastating weapon I respect your opinion that Mechwarriors is not your cup of tea but don’t put it down because your lack of knowledge and inability to take in a new concept of gameplay affects your feelings for it I for one have been waiting for a game like this for years and though there are some bugs and minor balance issues the games is absolutely wonderful

      1. I can understand the heated feelings but…punctuation people. Huge blocks of text favors none when trying to put out opinions/ideas/points of view.

        Just a friendly reminder so people don’t misinterpret what you mean and end up missing a point you may try to make.

        Also back to topic, gotta take some time on MWO. Didn’t find the game UI quite intuitive and that may take away some new faces trying it out. I loved the tactical aspect of the game (WoT player here, love’em heavy tanks), but I do feel it needs some better introduction to it’s systems before it can be a hit outside of the MechWarrior fan scope.

      2. ~Fixed~

        This is my personal opinion: /You/ are a moron of the highest caliber. You have obviously NEVER played any of the mechwarrior games and this proves true for your lack of knowledge on how the game should be played. Mechwarrior is not a run-and-gun shooter like the normal fps; it takes REAL skill and strategy to play. It is not supposed to be for casual gamers, but for gamers who wish to use true strategic war tactics that go far beyond ‘quick-scoping’ and ‘camping.’ In fps now-a-days, you always see your team getting killed in under five minutes. Know why? That is because your team is running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get as many kills as possible instead of working together to win while the other team more than likely is putting forth the effort to take you noobs down. You’re not playing Gundam, son. These mechs are constructed in a time frame that is similar to ours, except with a bit more advanced technology. These mechs are like tanks- slow but powerful, and when in the right hands they can be a devastating weapon. I respect your opinion that Mechwarriors is not your cup of tea, but don’t put it down because your lack of knowledge and inability to take in a new concept of gameplay affects your feelings for it. I for one have been waiting for a game like this for years and- though there are some bugs and minor balance issues- the game is absolutely wonderful.

        1. It would be nice if the comments had a Edit button…

    2. Casual players should only play farm ville type games. They are the reason why publishers and developers are dumbing down games (not just mmos). This “n00b-friendly” type of thinking is ruining the gaming industry in general.

      1. Ruining the gaming industry? In what sense? In that companies are looking to strive for more of a fun factor that’s more suitable for a wider range of demographics? Game developers are in it for profit. More market share equals more profit. Look at some of the big boys of online gaming, changing mechanics to be more casual. It’s even changed some of the core group.

        P.S. Last time I checked, it was a bad thing that you and your friends sat around for days on end playing video games well into your thirties. The rest of society doesn’t care if it advanced your hardcore pvp character this many points. You’re still a loser and a presumed virgin. Gaming companies have been trying to grab a bigger market to prove that their target audience isn’t a pile of repulsive manboys. Deal with it.

  3. never made for casual players

  4. It looked like allot of “group up, watch our backs as the little guys rush in” Not allot of tactic. I had the original single player games but never finished them, just wasn’t as interesting as other games I was playing at the time. I just want something to replace World of Tanks since I uninstalled after Patch 8.0

  5. I remember facing off against that player in the video. This game is still in beta thus i suppose one could expect a lot of features to be missing still and the interface probably still isn’t at its best. I personally put about 6-8 hours into the game cuz of other commitments and games to play.

    The game caters highly towards fans of the previous game or those interested in the boardgame, or generally mech loving players. If one has played the previous games before they would probably feel quite at home with this game as the controls are quite similar to those games, but for the first timers coming in, the lack of a tutorial teaching them how to effectively pilot the mech and setting the weapons into groups would be a big turn off (like our friend montiblanc – which i would also like to say that mmos aren’t quite the type of games for casual players not looking to invest their time and life into such games).

    As a player playing without friends in the game and getting slotted into random teams, it will definitely turn out like as mentioned n the above comment, where facing off a team of organized players/friends will likely result in your mech being turned into salvage when you run off alone into 3-4 enemy mechs. Stick with other mechs bigger than yours or stay in groups, and try to coordinate with your fellow pilots. Take some time to read up on the game or to learn the basics of the game before striding into the game without any experience and then feel frustrated that it’s not the twitch based mech game you’d imagine it to be (like Hawken, kinda looking forward to that too).

    If you’re really interested in the game then you could always do some reading up on the official site: http://www.mwomercs.com and learn up on the types of mechs and control (or just do some basic reading to have an idea of what you’re doing). While playing online against other skilled players in their premade teams would be the biggest hurdle unless you get used to dying, you can always visit mektek.com or google ‘Mechwarrior 4 free download’ to play the closest iteration to the game against the AI first, which was made free not too long ago.

    If you’ve read until here, i hope i didn’t bore you or waste your time, and if i did, you probably made the wrong decision reading something you highly disagreed with or disapproved of. The game looks absolutely great (compared to Mechwarrior 4, in my opinion at least) and plays just right, either as a hit and run light mech (almost hawken-like) or a slower lumbering giant, or in between. Hope you guys have fun playing the game or any other games you like.

  6. Firstly, it’s Jenner, not Jennifer. XD

    Secondly, founder’s ‘Mechs aren’t really superMechs, their combat capabilities aren’t different from normal ‘Mechs. They get more C-Bills after each battle and have different skins, that’s all.

    Thirdly, AC10 = AutoCannon 10 (10 is caliber), PPC = Particle Projection Cannon.

    Fourthly, great first look. I liked it alot better than your previous first looks becaouse you’ve been more talking about game features and less about what you’re currently doing.

  7. Hawken is better.

    1. Hawken is just another shooter, MechWarrior is a simulation.

    2. Personal opinion whichever is better.

      If you enjoy playing Hawken.. go and do so…

      If other people enjoy playing MechWarrior… let them be.

      I’m not quite sure why people HAVE to do these comments… “This and that game I play is better than yours… you are the worst #@$# on this planet” thing…

      Whatever…

      It’s about having fun, not about being a fanboy. If you really have to convince other people about your opinion from the game you play that’s a bit off the track already I think… but nevertheless… good for you… Now back to gaming.

  8. Muhahha i am in beta and i am invited but i dont need that sux founder pack, Muhehehehe the game is good but i want try Hawken too so i can select what game is better.

  9. Is there death from above? I loved that in The board game.
