yes.
The only f2p game I would pay money for would be a Mechwarrior game.
i'd kill to pay for the ability to add my own art on to my mech and spruce it up to be however i want it to be goatse mech OH MY i'd definitely pay money for this though
Loved Mechwarrior 4, I can remember looking at the Mechwarrior 5 trailer and acting like: "[i]wow those must be the best graphics ever[/i]"
I'm thinking this will turn out like (an actually well made) world of tanks with mechs. My body is not ready.
F2P MMO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I mean there's hope since it's mechwarrior but god damn F2P games aren't F2P. This usually also means less graphically capabilities and I was all excited 2 years ago at the release of that trailer. IMO the F2P model right from the get go is generally a bad idea, I'd love a singleplayer mechwarrior game with awesome graphics and a good campaign. Not saying this is crap just... not quite what I wanted. I think the articles earlier that said "new mechwarrior is PC exclusive" got me all hyped up... wasn't expecting F2P

Secondly if they want to market it to as many people as possible you keep the required specs low, just like a paid MMO.
Make it like BF3. Console specs for minimum settings, with huge graphics improvements on Ultra.

If it turns out to be good I'll probably play it though. At least I'll add it to the list of other interesting MMOs coming out that I want to try, along with planetside 2 and maybe guild wars 2.
Fifty bucks it's gonna end like TF2 and have items on the cash shop that affect gameplay. They could of went indie, but nooo...they turned it into a fucking mmo
This is fucking awesome. They already said all gameplay altering upgrades will be earnable through gameplay. I've got really high hopes for this -- enlisted my pilot already.

I hope that if they implement the Clans later on, they are not game-breakingly powerful like they are in the boardgame.
Oh and the game now place in 3049 instead of 3015, so you know what that means!

You have no idea how happy this makes me. With what I've read, the game will have a live timeline. That means that although the Clans wont be in the game at launch, the Clan invasion WILL happen during the course of the games lifespan. Read the PC Gamer interview if you want to know more. I have to say, I don't usually look forward to many games anymore because of the massive commercialization and business aspect that dominates games these days. It's very rare that you have a group of people who are working on a game because it's their passion, the game that they've always wanted to make. Reading the website and interviews, it's very apparent that these guys love Battletech. They have a ton of great ideas such as the whole intel aspect and the way missiles are now handled. I can't wait.
[quote]So we have this concept of the Inner Sphere, which is galaxy that the BattleTech universe takes place in. And there’s a lot change that happens starting in the year 3048 and right up until 3067. And we wanted our game there because our timeline is live. So the minute this game goes live, every day that passes in our world, it passes live in the Inner Sphere world. So August 1st 2012 is August 1st, 3049. And so we had a live content stream with a live, evolving universe going on as time progresses. We wanted to set it during that period of time because there’s a lot of change. The Clans come down, they invade, there’s the introduction of new technology. There’s lots of story pieces that are happening, and lots of territory change.[/quote] Wow ok, so as the days go by the game advances, with new content being added into the game via this streaming system. so we will have access to new mechs and equipment as we go forward (possibly clan stuff eventually.) Oh and the Clan invasion starts in august 3049, which is why the game is coming out this summer, to sync up with the clan invasion timeline. Brilliant.

I've never played a MechWarrior game. The only thing I played that resembles it is Armored Core are they anything alike?
[QUOTE=69105;33064207]they just said they aren't doing that way to read the thread[/QUOTE] I read the thread thank you very much. I'm still gonna ask for you to look back. They ALL said that and look what happens. I still believe they had a chance of going indie. Alot of fans would buy it if they had a beta version with at least skirmish. If they do urban combat, then it's gonna be shit. Refer back to Mechwarrior 4's Urban missions and you'll understand what I mean. For those who have never played the 4th, The urban missions were cramped as hell and felt like shit. [QUOTE=loco;33065597]I've never played a MechWarrior game. The only thing I played that resembles it is Armored Core are they anything alike?[/QUOTE] Mechwarrior is more strategy-based.
>Equip best LR weapons on best mech >Alpha Strike the SHIT out of everyone before they can touch you >Fuck heat because you'll be so far away you'll be able to wait it out. :dance: Also [quote][B]BUT THE DEVELOPERS HAVE GONE ON RECORD AND SAID THAT PAY FOR ITEMS WILL ONLY BE COSMETIC IN NATURE AND ANYTHING THAT EFFECTS ACTUAL GAMEPLAY WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH ACTUALLY PLAYING THE GAME[/B].[/quote] Not gonna happen, they're going to go back on this with SOMETHING. Then it will snowball into a pay2win MMO. See 95% of all F2P MMO's.
Core tenets from interviews: --First-person, no third-person --Simulation as a core principle (Mechwarrior 2-4) --Staying away from the arcadey-ness of MechAssault --Trailer was a demonstration for the potential multiplatform title; whatever's in that trailer will still be applicable to MWO --Free-to-play was a direct conclusion to the circumstances. Microsoft wouldn't allow MW on PS3/Wii. Publishers liked, but weren't willing to publish, a MW5 on just 360/PC. Such was the economy in 2009. --No gameplay-influencing paid items --Four-man lances --Meta-game mercenary corporations composed of lances; much like guilds or EVE corps
Information warfare? If that's so I'm hoping that radio-electronic combat will play a role (e.g. jamming communications and possible feints and deception).
I need this. Still play mechwarrior 3, both the singleplayer (One of the best progressive campaigns ever made) and Online, well simulated LAN. Adding the background details for even more customisation and your own lance and well. I'm sold.
[QUOTE=Tac Error;33066613]Information warfare? If that's so I'm hoping that radio-electronic combat will play a role (e.g. jamming communications and possible feints and deception).[/QUOTE] That kind of thing will be really important in urban combat.
Radar jamming and decoys on scouts would be amazing, being able to deter a squad because their radar tells them there are 15 tanks and some mechs around.
