It's appropriate time to make a few plans for the long run and it's time to be happy. I have read this post and if I may I desire to recommend you few fascinating issues or advice. Maybe you can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I wish to read more things about it!

I totally agree with what was said by montiblanc and I am a Mechwarrior fan who played the Tabletop, RPG and all the computer games... waiting so long for this crap?!. This game is a step backwards in gameplay, even MW4 was one thousand times better.

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. 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

Awesome. I'm really looking forward to this. It looks like a mmo, moded, and cleaned version of my first mw experience back in the SNES days. I buying time and not victory, thankfully these devs understand that some of us don't mind building up. This game is going to be great for fans of the franchise.

Why would you waste your time commenting, saying the game is bad? Can't you just go to the next game, or say something good about it ? Or is it like always "haters gonna hate" ?

Guys this game is going to be awesome thrust me and its not going to be pay 2 win or anything like
that this founder packs give early access to beta,skins and C-bills/xp boost so only thing that you are going to be able to buy with real money are mechs,skins,c-bill/xp boosts so its just buying time
not power devs clearly said they don't want pay2win game.

Now this game looks slow when you watch trailer and it actually is but in your mind everything is going fast mind is too focused on controlling mech looking for enemies and aiming that everything
is going fast in mind. I really thing this game is for everyone (who doesn't like to drive machine of destruction ?) so its not that hard to get into it but if someone doesn't like tactical aspect of gaming then this is definitely not for him/her XD, so this is year of mech games and we have hawken coming too so want something fast with twitch shooting then thats game for you and i understand that but for love of god please don't say its bad maybe you don't like that kind of games but its not bad.Deves of mwo are best they are constantly in contact with community
and they are awesome group of people that are fans of Battletech/Mechwarrior games.

Wasting your breath Vieric, people have no appreciation for high quality labours of love like this, all they want is the next cookie cutter COD clone so they can mash buttons and swear at ten year olds.

worth noting those are indeed larger slower mechs, there are others as well some specialize in speed, some are more balanced and others (like the ones in the video here)
are slow as all get out, but pack a huge punch to make up for it.

In addition, damage is done to "sections" of the mech as opposed to drawing off of one basic HP pool, that said, with enough damage to a particular section it will be either crippled or destroyed which can result in massively decreased mobility if its the legs, or a loss of firepower as weapons systems will be blown off.

To remedy this mechs can be customized in various fashions, weapon loadout and placement are relatively customizable as is armor, and even speed.

I can go on and on about this, but my post is getting quite long. my point is, there is far more to the game than what you see here, it is well worth your while to learn of its nuances before passing judgement, as there are a lot of them.

everyone has their own sense of entertainment, just because it doesn't match your taste doesn't mean it's bad, hell, someone is still playing pirates online and flyff online certainly not because these are ... good ... games
