Well well, I'm surprised by the various people complaining about this game. It isn't even finished.
Yet, it's amazing to play even now.
For those who said the mechs move too sluggishly - were they piloting a Jenner with the Elite Speed Tweak skill? Guess not. I love it when I can catch an Atlas alone.... they're dead, they just can't hit me as I zoom round and round them, blasting away at their thin rear armour.
For those who complain about pay to win - I got the lowest level of founders package, but not having a founder's mech hasn't been a problem at all! I've become elite in 2 different mech types, and will soon be an elite Atlas pilot too. This hasn't cost me money. Free to play you can still be the best in the match - it's all about skill and strategy.
YES - skill and strategy. Doesn't matter if you're in a big or small mech, it's the way you play. In one match I did 867 damage, and I was piloting a Jenner! Ahhh, my beloved Jenner - 153km/h jumping bundle of death-by-laser.
Can't wait for it to be finished, for the factions to be actually meaningful etc. But it's still the most fun to play, constantly-thinking skill and strategy shooter around. It also has a ton of customisation options for each mech, just too good!
But - desperately needs voice chat! Stopping to type out "help get this light mech off by back" or "they're flanking us to the right" sucks...
Also, the match-maker needs a little more work, especially when you have to fight on the Tourmaline Desert map 5 times in a row - it's enough to make you buy a Jagermech and fit it out with only ballistic weapons.
I think I'll keep my lasers, yet still fail to resist firing the lot of them when the internal systems say "heat level critical"... then "shutting down"...

I do hope that it at least stands up to MPBT game on GEnie from 1992.
