The MechWarrior Online team has posted a new blog to address some of the concerns raised by the community. Among other things, the team announced that the open beta will be delayed for some time until issues can be revisited and that the team is listening and responding to the player base.
Game development is similar to trying to steer a very large ship. To make changes in direction takes time and accurate judgement calls.
