Repetitive, frustrating, unimaginative, anti-social, F2P... everything I hate about video games is included in MWO. Avoid this thing like the plague.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure TF2 isn't an MMO. This game shouldn't even be listed here.

Pretty much agree with everything you said. The devs don't seem to get a lot done in a decent amount of time. No real content, no real content coming anytime soon in the pipeline, complete lack of balance, a predatory and prohibitive price system for Battletech fans and new players. Pilot trees with no flavor or imagination and even one of the skills doesn't actually do anything as convergence is already instant.

Game could have been more but with all of the posts from the devs talking about how they've had to learn how to do things properly with Cryengine which is the reason for the massive delays on fixes for hit registration, content, UI 2.0,  its more like your funding a bunch of uneducated developers to go to school rather than build a worthwhile game.

You can Play this game sucessfull not paying any Money!

There is "Money Only Content" but you can not buy Power - you can buy Convenience, Fluff and Differentation (Skins, Colours and Mechs of the same Powerlevel with unique Skins and Loadouts).

I Play this game, i have spent Money for Convenience, Fluff and Differentation and yet i have the most success in a Mech that is a Standard Mech bought with Ingame-Currency.

This game is Fair F2P and worth to be played - you can not do any wrong!

PS: Its a PvP game so expect to get killed harsh and often on your way up like any and all of us former Greenhorns. ;)

This game takes a gigantic dump on everything MechWarrior and the MechWarrior Universe.

Yet it is the best we have and Xfire shows a strong Up-Trend - tripled and even quadruppled playtime, more users, etc...

Hawken is left in the dust (rightfully so), both Everquest, Age of Conan, Secret World, Lineage II to name a few examples - all behind Mechwarrior Online!

You just compared a clunky shooter game to non shooting mmorpgs. Just like saying " My gun is better than your bee hive ". It just doesn't work.

Hawken non clunky > Mechwarrior clunky . That's my opinion.

Right there, that is where your credit went straight down the drain. Xfire is a POOR way to judge how a game is doing, it doesn't show anything, just one source which isn't even that widely used. NEVER use Xfire to prove anything, whether its an 'upward trend' or 'downward spiral', the only thing it proves what those few Xfire users are doing, not the vast majority of the population not using it.

Xfire is a good trend measure tool - the trend is strongly positive.
