Discuss how the games shattered your dreams here, now the draconian measures have been lifted.
After several weeks of playing and trying to like the game, ive decided I cant. tested it for about a week, and the only thing I can see going for it is the animation work which seems good. The economy is a broken mess, the out of game GUI one of the worst ive ever used and mechlab broken with catapults firing gauss slugs out of machine gun slots.
The actual mech combat isnt bad, and alot of fun can be found in it. The cockpits and freelook are pretty awesome, I only wished the heat sink readouts etc worked. However, like the rest of it needs alot of work. Being able to lock onto people that others are scanning without C3 obviously negates any need to have sensor electronics installed. Being able to ram enemy mechs over is a plus though.
The maps are not impressive. Ive seen more impressive community MWLL maps than the ones offered here. The maps are small, and only River City is arguably of any real quality followed closely by caustic valley. Frozen city needs alot of work visually, and forest canyon or whatever it is plays horrendously.
Seriously believe that any release within the next six months is simply to try grab dollar rather than complete the product. The scale is small, and they have not tried to bring an MMO feeling to it. As it stands, its a clone of world of tanks that does make for fun small scale mech battles.
However its incredibly frustrating, considering its a paid team and much more could have been done with the IP. I just hope we get the house / house metagame they promised, otherwise its completed missed the mark as far as im concerned.
