I also am very interested in the release of this game. I have played all the single player games and even tried to go online with them but never got past the campers. Did a little digging not to long ago and came across a few pages about Mechwarrior 5. The pics looked awsome and the game play senario was much the same. Even though this is not  MW5 I can see how it may be very close. Having said that I will watch this very closely and dream of lance attack stratagies and new weapos to add an edge to any arena. 10 ga.

F2P lobby based gameplay,  that's what i'm hearing anyway.

Velika: City of Wheels: Among the mortal races, the humans were the only one that never built cities or great empires; a curse laid upon them by their creator, Gidd, forced them to wander as nomads for twenty centuries...

Yes it is exactly...

as i said in a previous post "World of tanks, I mean mechs". Nothing but get a mech grind using instanced lobby games like world of tanks to higher lvl mechs or just buy it from PAY2WIn shop.

here is my prediction:

Welcome to lvl 20 now u can buy:

PPC - 100000 grind points

ER PPC - 2000000 grind points

ER (CLAN) PPC:  10 mech points (cash shop)

 

in other news, for hardcore battletech fans, there are few simple but fun Battletech (multiplayer) games out there:

Invasion 3042

Megamek

 

edit: I would so pay a sub fee for a monthly subbased battletech game where u are in a world where u can change/interact like EVE.

I can assure you we won't have Pay2Win as a design mechanic. MWO doesn't have a way for you to be in a 'Mech that can't even injure another 'Mech. There's no wish over here to make it so people HAVE to buy stuff to win. Even though Paul will probably need that...

Same setup I guess as Battletech 3025 Online which Electronic Arts did back in 1999-2000 before they pulled the plug on beta. That was a fun game.

That game rocked, it had some awesome potential, i was very dissapointed when they pulled the plug on that.

Here's hoping to MWO being atleast as good, but hopefully even better than EA's BT3025.

im wet over the thoughts of a good rpg online mech game, used to play in the mw3 msn lobbies for 12 hours a day in league that tracked on paper what we fought over, if you lose the wrong planets you lost access to mechs and weapons (like your clan factories or your ppc factories ect) 

 

as for the f2p model, if they do it like sto itll be fine, just skins and crap for sale and if you pay a sub you get some points monthly to save up to buy the crap, lets just hope its not like forsaken world where he who spends most has most pots to pop on a low cooldown, that kind of crap isnt fun, just annoying.

 

from the looks of game design mwo is going to have scouts skirmishers and commanders on the teams, scouts feeding intel to the commanders, who tell the skirmishers whats up and the team that works together best wins.  i myself like the big mechs armed to the teeth, either set up to snipe on the maps with the room for it, or fuck it point blank loads in the city where i can have the commander tell me theres a guy around the corner with my own radar off so im not so easy to spot so i can turn that bitch and unload in his face with heavy guns or a rocket salvo that leaves him a crater.  not that i wont earn my dues as a scout till i can get into the skirmishers (scout mechs might die fast but you are the eyes of the team and you still have a few weapons on ya)

F2P, P2P, Sub, I *almost* don't care.  To some people, there are some games that transcend pay models.  Some people can see past whatever payment scheme and can recognize the potential in a game.

Is this one of those games?  Only time will tell.  I am hopeful.  Mechwarrior is in my "uber list."  That doesn't mean they can put out a shit product and I'm going to fork over the cash.  However, if properly done, the hairs on my ass are standing up and chanting "whoa whoa whoa" on the possbilities of this mmo.

Having played all the MechWarrior games in my youth, I must admit I have a touch of rose colored glasses.  Nostalgia can be a powerful ally.  Or a powerful enemy.  I'm *trying* to take off my glasses and see this mmo from a neutral standpoint.  I am only partially succeeding.  I am awaiting this game with cautious optimism, however I can't remove the images from my mind on how uber this game could be if done properly.

What's up with this?    Not enough PC gamer vets on this site?   None of the youngens remember the greatness of the Mechwarrior series?    Not enough Mechwarrior/Battletech pen+paper players?    

 

bahh....

 

 Oh I am pretty hyped up about it. :) Being an old GEnie player of MPBT/Mechwarrior 3025 back in 1992-1996.  Even almost I think recall my old Comstar number, 5033. Been doing research into getting a whole new throttle/joystick/rudder set up like I used back then. Kids used to love it when my Marauder MAD-3R moved and fired during Solaris duels. :) 

 

 I sort of keep one eye on the Mechwarrior online web site and I'll read news bits when they come out but I dont haunt their web page honestly. Though it was nice to see some of my fellow old mechwarriors are still alive and kicking and will be playing from the posts I've seen on their web site forums. :)

based it on the rpg. let players be pilots mechwarriors engineers .

time period 3055

Factions

The house states, comstar the clans mercs

 

I just like to do more then bash away in mechs. Take the ORGINAL idea of star wars galaxies withi more planets and the battletech story. sigh guess I will just dream.

 

/signed

Battletech and SJ's Car Wars world are two PnP systems I would love to see realised in full blown sandbox glory.

 

    Agreed, strongly even. :)

If they base their free to play model on League of Legends, with all cash shop items being cosmetic or boosts that do not affect combat that would be great. Hopefully just cosmetc, but that would be too much to hope for.

I'm assuming this game is gonna be kinda like World of Tanks but hopefully without crap like premium ammo.

I've signed up on their forums (reserved my pilot name). Definitely high on my radar, potential for this title is massive. Their forums are abuzz, I had no idea how popular Battletech was/is.

Mechwarrior is an old, rich and respected IP that really does fit the play styles brough out by MMOs. If they stay true to the games heart this will be amazing and a pure geek fest. I am even looking right now at a $100 joystick just for playing this game.

The game might not be in the Clan invasion timeline, but it will get there.

I think there is a reason (as i believe the dev's posted as well) that it hangs in 2049 now.

First we will get some quality time with Inner Sphere tech, followed by the invasion and availability of clan tech.

 

Also, if i understood correctly, the MMO side of things will be an overall status on what faction owns what region etc. As i don't think there will be much to do when you're sitting around traveling between worlds aside from hanging in the mechlab, so why add being able to walk around?

Also, if you're constantly down in the field waiting for the enemy to attack will only leave options for going away from keyboard and getting shot up by surprise :p

For now, i can't wait to see what Piranha will do and how they will do it... All i know, is that i have my Saitek X65-F ready and i'm itching for the start of the beta.

You are free, to do as we tell you.

It's set in 3049...isn't that the Clan invasion period?

I'd love to fight the Twycross campaign alongside Allard-Liao

The game actually follows a timeline with 1 day passing in the Battletech universe for each day that passes in real life.  It is set in 3049 so the clan invasion will be coming and we know the exact date already.  Probably won't get to the Word of Blake jihad unless they do a fast forward or if the game runs for 30 years :)

I'm looking forward to this game.  I'm nervous about the cash shop but hopeful they won't go overboard.
