I'm not even angry, just disappointed at where the industry is going. It's just not MW too, and I'm part of the problem by supporting these business practices. No more, just no more. It's why I only play games like AA:PG and Insurgency now.
Personally, I haven't seen a clan mech out perform my heavily customized Dragons. Managed to get the beasts up to 90kph while maintaining enough firepower. Easily ripped a Madcat apart with dual ER lasers, SRM and AC2 with machine guns. Only damage was a leg in red.
not too bad, finally let you choose game type you want to play, so just straight onto skirmish without gay capping. Mechlab has changed...still getting used to navigation around it. Community is great, lots of team work in games.
>>11076259 >>11076242 I wouldn't say its pay to win but more like big name companys like Word of Blake, Dragoon, or what the fuck they are called, Big Bank Medical want you to buy better and new mechs because the old pieces of shits you are piloting are obsolete. Thats the way the industry works isn't it?
They didn't do anything with this game they promised, did they?
I seem to remember them talking about how they were going to do campaigns where you could sign on with one of the houses and have faction based play/contracts. They also talked about how they would NEVER have third person out of cockpit mode and how it was supposed to be immersive, and while they did plan to have Clan mechs, it would be based upon salvage, and they wanted to have some kind of PVE events or something... did any of this ever happen?
>>11076299 I don't play it either. but I'm just saying isn't that the way the industry works? You pay for a better car for the gas mileage and comfortable seats, you buy a better mech for the better engine and weapons?
>>11076313 From a lore standpoint, yeah, I guess that makes sense, but when I actually have to lift crates and pack trucks on the docks and shit for hours a week to get the money to pay for it and a game asks me to fork over a whole fucking paycheck for a garish gold finish on some polygons in a game that'll likely be dead within two years, it really breaks the immersion.
>>11076322 More like it moves and feels like a mech. it has buttons in the cockpit like a mech. it shoots like a mech. it has the stupid toys and hawaiian girls in the mech. It blows up like a mech. It shutsdown when it is overheated like a mech. It takes alot of effort to beat a single mech like a mech. That is an authentic meching
>>11076295 Every day is an actual day in the history of the Inner Sphere! Relive the glory days of Katrina Steiner, using the lost Matching Service technology of the Star League to sit in a queue for a 12v12 battle with some randos in a nondescript city!
Did any of you play in beta? Remember how you could rake them with lasers and heat up the armor until it was red hot, and heat distortion would rise off of it, and you could jump in the water and heat would rise from it? And then they turned the graphics down so people using toasters could play it?
I played in Closed beta, it was so promising, then they buggered themselves royally. well, at least the media called them out on their shit as well, so hopefully that horrible company dies and someone not retarded gets the MW license.
It's such a shame, cause i really love all the designs for the game, they were really great at taking lots of the derp from the old art and making it look awesome.
Are you shitting me? Every weapon that isn't an LRM in MW4 behaves like it's some kind of retarded laser or something, LRMs have no minimum range. SRMs are horrible. Light mechs have no momentum, they can start and stop their movement like they're goddamn UFOs.
MWO is the only game to have finally done the laser weapons right in terms of "canon" and approachability for gameplay balance. The same can be said for pretty much every weapon type. I'm not one of those people who hates MW4 and Mercs, I enjoy them all, but 4 by far has some of the weakest gameplay elements of all the games.
I understand that there have been serious problems with MWO and many persist. I know I play it and I'm extremely critical of it. But when individual matches are good, it's damn good.
Right now, the game's solo play que is largely separated from the group que. There are far less meta-fags in poptarts in this venue and it honestly is a great deal funner doing solo drops.
the devs need to really REALLY understand just how bad pop-tarting fucks the whole game up completely. In a way they are taking some steps to curtail it by rebalancing how jump jets and fall damage works...but ala Occam's razor - they just need to make all PPCs and projectile weapons simply not work when the mech is in the air.
>>11075982 More than anything It merely makes you impatient. Do you not enjoy looking forward to when they're going to release mechs for C-Bills?
>>11080270 Actual projectiles don't really matter if shitty netcode gives every player built-in lag dodge. At least with a hitscan you don't have to lead a target that may or may not exist, you can just shoot at where you think it is and hope for the best.
>>11080286 Netcode complains? Have you not played the game in over a year? The behavior of the ballistic weapons is one of the most solid aspects of the game, has been for months. In fact they uniformly readjusted their values because they were too effective.
The F2P aspect is what killed it. PGI got greedy and now 50% of the game is unavailable unless you pay for it. It wouldn't be bad if $60 got you a large portion of what's left, but instead I think it gets you only 2 or 3 mechanical and that's it. If you want the full game it would be something like $500. Plus most of the bought items are downright better
>>11080270 >jilpoong17 drew an actual robot rather than sayaka dressed as the robot Times have changed. Also never knew he was a Battletech/Mechwarrior fan but his interests seem so incredibly broad I shouldn't be surprised.
