    F2P is starting to kick some serious amount of P2P a$$. Its obituary is already half written but one more game like this on the side of F2P and P2P will flatline.

    I am going to play this as soon as it comes out and or I get into the beta, this…. wow just… it’s the mech game I think everyone has been waiting for forever.

    This is probably going to be one of the best games out there, I can imagine the servers crashing due to over load, also I can imagine the names people will pick on here lol.
