MechWarrior Online is continuing to build big things for its playerbase, none more than the upcoming patch which will bring big changes into the game including the fast and furious Spider Mech. We check in with Russ Bulloch to find out what else is in store for players in our exclusive interview. Read on and then discuss the article in the comments.
Russ started off by talking about the versatility of the new Spider Mech. It is a light scout mech that they wanted to update with a more modern look. They took the original artwork and brought it into the digital era. We asked Russ how the Spider Mech has changed the battlefields and he explained that it is always an ongoing balance process when they enter in a new mech. The team continues to watch the balance between how individual mechs and even lances stack up. The Match Making system is very important to the developers and they want to make sure players have fair challenges any time they log in.
