So let me get this straight:

If you outfit your Mech in the Cash Shop with all the latest goodies, does this mean you can still play in this leaderboard tourament against gamers who have box standard Mechs? .. or .. are all gamers on the same playing level?.

You can outift your Mech with ingame money only - no RTM needed, all Weapons and all Tech is in the game availiable for everyone!

Its highly likely to have fun if you like to tinker around, play tactically, like piloting a Tank, like to have death a meaning!

Have Fun!

Honestly, it's more about hardcore vs casual players; if you can't dedicate a couple of hours to playing with a set team (and much of that time you will spend watching them play), then you won't do very well.

Heh, that might actually be a believable statement from any company that didn't have a reputation for lying when the truth would do just as well; when they actually have INCENTIVE to make stuff up?

Let me translate their message out of bullshit:

"We aren't losing players like crazy! Really! PLEASE DEAR GOD BELIEVE US!"

 

8000 players. Pathetic.

The numbers are reasonable.
Xfire shows still a positive trend for MWO now being in the top 80 for most days of the last week while Hawken i.e. is almost down to 350 showing a negative trend.

Imho the MWO numbers are impressive for a game in this state of beta with so much more stuff to come in the next months!
