"If you want a look at how enraged a community of dedicated and passionate fans can get, the community around Mechwarrior Online and the rage it’s currently feeling is a good place to start."

Take anything with a grain of salt as there is heavy agitation going on and some People switched to "Vendetta-Mode", but this article is pretty spot on how PGI managed to upset a huge number of their most loyal Players.
It does not even mention the ECM disaster and the extreme New Player unfriendliness.

PGI has an interesting time atm...

And this was the sentiment a few months ago:

"MWO has a lot on the horizon. Community warfare, new mechs, the clan invasion, and plenty of non-canon live events are all no doubt planned for the upcoming year. While the awkward, shifting balance and lack of variety hurts MWO’s staying power, it’s still a fun game in short bursts. At the very least, MWO’s success has brought the Mechwarrior franchise back into the limelight and shown a new generation of players the joy of robot fights.

Now we just have to wait to see if it manages to become genuinely fantastic."

It's a shame to see all this bad stuff happening.

What was PGI thinking?  They had to know most of those changes would upset their fans.  Were they just not bringing in enough money and decided to take a risk in favor of profit?  They're a business after all.  If that's the case, I don't blame them for trying to keep the business afloat, but clearly they went about it the wrong way.
