Ripper makes his video from prespective of someone who is completely new to MMOS. So ofcourse you see him making mistakes and learning. That is the whole point of his videos... duh!!

He doesn't make these videos to show you his l33t skills.

@ghettoceleb Thanks for the tip! Thanks Nacario for the kind words, and yes I will use epic if a game is epic. 

@Whitebeards, *HUGS*

Best,

Ripper X

Freezzo writes: Nice video, entertaining watch. I just keep wondering why there's so many silences, especially during the slower parts (where it's just walking). It'd be a tad more enjoyable if there was some talking explaining there. For example there's very fast talking about different weapons and numbers at a certain time and before that a whole lot of silence :) Thu Nov 15 2012 5:44PM Report

Was hoping you'd cover this. MWO looks like its part simulator part FPS which I was hoping for.

Was funny to watch and listen to you as always.

Thanks Rip.

 

 

And thanks for bringing your original intro back. Like'em both but the orgi is the best.

I'm not much into Mechs, but I like to check these first impressions for Ripper's commentary :)

And +1 to what Freezzo said, there were a few unusual silent part in the vid. C'mon, what is happening, put some lines in there too...

CryEngine logo - And RipperX, nVidia logo - And RipperX :) awesome

if you're such a fan why not check out the game for free and realize this is false... there is one cash only mech and it is simply a variant.. no better not less, just has a fancy paint job.

I will also chime in here and say that MWO is absolutely NOT pay to win. Not even close. There is one single mech that can only be purchased with MC (Mech Credits purchased w/ real cash) and it's only a variant. And to be honest it's not very good. You get a CBill (ingame currency) boost if you pilot that mech, but the mech itself isn't anything special.

 

The best part about MWO is that *ANY* mech can destroy you in the hands of a capable pilot. Once you learn which playstyle suits you best and customize a few mechs to play to your strengths, you can really start shredding people.

if you are truly a mech fan try the game instead of making uninformed ignorant claims that it is pay 2 win.

<span com_body"="">With the Exception the the Yen Lo Wang (A Centurion Variant from the Novels with custom skin) all mechs can be bought with Cbills (play for free) or MC (bought with real cash) and no matter which way you pay for it it works the same.

The only difference between the YLW and the standard Centurions variants is it has less hardpoints, a custom skin & earns 35% more cbills per match. The 4 Founders Mech variants (which can no longer be purchased) also have custom skins but they are basic chasis and they earn 25% more Cbills per match.

More cbills per match is helpfull but definitely not pay to win and does not give an advantage against other players during combat.

 

The great thing about this game is that even the lightest mech can damage & kill the heaviest mechs, there is no weapon bounce like in WoT. So you can throw down some cash and but an Atlas and you will still get owned by players with more skill in light mechs & to top it off that Atlas repair bill is going to be astronomical !
