Even though I donīt speak Italian, my mind was able to recollect enough Latin to make me understand enough to be deeply disappointed by these former "colleagues" of yours.+9001 by HAARP, it's almost an honor for me..thanks
+9001 for you, man !
Yes...actually the reason for that is that the Italian MWO community is little...(about 100 players, and many of them aren't active anymore).
If I start to bring people here, things will get bad for the Italian MWO merc-corps (actually there is only a one, big merc corp) who will play the Community Warfare (when it will come...maybe in 2-3 years, when that game - hopefully - will be dead.. ).
BTW, I already found some players (MWLL italian players i mean) and sent them emails about the event. Hope they will come...
EDIT: Oh, forgot to say that, in the middle of the flame in the Corp forum, one guy said (indirectly) that Gouty is a "c**** who doesn't follow the MWO forum rules, and that they were right to remove his post".
I asked them: "well, tell me why the topics about MW2 and MW4, Star Citizen and other games are still there, then..."
They said, obvioulsy: "it's different... blah blah blah...MWO is the spiritual successor of MW4 and MW2...blah blah blah..."
Their defensiveness betrays their true feelings. If they didn't see MW:LL as good enough to be competition, they wouldn't get their panties all wadded up over it. Imagine changing the announcement to an old game, say Battlezone1 and a "Let's all play together on Saturday" thread. What would their reaction be. "Oh let's go and try a game we used to play" not their childish name calling.
Can they see the end game and feel cheated? I mean it's quite possible that in two years there will still be a few populated MW:LL servers around and nothing but trolltastic filled MWO servers? Sure it is.
The single advantage of MW:LL to me is the way it connects you with other players. You play for 30 to 90 minutes on mostly the same team (barring switching to level the teams). Longer matches with a lot of the same players feels "homey" in a good way. One match Fisko is busy blasted the terrain in a hgauss aero on your side, the next he's in a vtrol on the other side messing your day up. You love him and hate him, and it's not gonna happen in any other game with giant stompy robots. I love and hate aero, tanks, hovers, BAs, mechs, and vtrols depending on what I'm playing in.
Combined arms sets MW:LL so far apart from MWO that they truly are different games. Balancing is hard work, and yet no matter how good your enemy's aeros are, you can roll out a few huits and partyvans to counter them. And if they're all in demos and morrys you out cap them and swarm base holders. And all this can happen in one game, in sequence, etc.
The wonders of driving a cougar into combat, and saving it by just a bit to have enough to buy a bushy or whammy or stormcrow or even an atlas or awesome, can be quite rewarding.
The feeling when you get so much money you can buy almost anything on the menu, and you grab a nice medium or heavy because your team's ahead by 200 points and you don't want to be all stompy.
The immediate transfer of 40k into your account when you're playing and need to buy a certain big asset. They'll never feel that in MWO. And I pity them for it.
