MWO is a massive pile of [redacting][redacted], I'll try this.
« on: November 10, 2013, 04:12:36 AM »
     I've played MWO for a bit now. Hate every minute of it. It's an awful, terrible grindfest. Now that I finally have a computer for it, I'm going to join you guys in MW:LL. I did read, a while back, about the cessation of development and the whole conspiracy around that, and it makes me hate PGI more. Between their incompetance at forming basic game balance, to their pay2win grindfest game concept, basically taking down MW:LL for the purpose of trying to get a measly sub-3,000 players is rather pathetic.
     
     I'm downloading the Crysis Wars trial with the compiled installer for MW:LL now, so hopefully I can join you guys here shortly.
     Cheers,
     -GG

P.S. I fully support the 'revive MW:LL movement. I'm a very-small-unto-obscurity Let's Player on YouTube, but I full well intend to use every milligram of weight I have to help the effort.

P.P.S. Yes, I sign my posts. There's a reason for it.

Yup, and I look forward to every one!  ;D

By the way, what server(s) do most of the regulars play? I took a quick look at the game last night and the multiplayer was completely inactive.

Huntress, CJW Alpha.

It should be active at this time of day.

Hi, and welcome to MWLL :)

Watch the skies when in an aero/VTOL-enabled map.
If you want to check out some features, such as the Long Tom (you'll see this abbreviated as LT often) or how to drive something, there is a server available for training.

Have fun on the field!

A thread has popped up in general discussion with some good gameplay tips in it:

I used to think like the OP until I actually tried MWLL. It's even worse than MWO, which is no mean feat.

P.S. PGI sucking balls does not mean MWLL is good

Haha, today when I saw MWOFAN and some other dude trolling around via in-game chat I actually thought of the same quote!

Long live the dude!

While MWO is pretty boring, MWLL is on a wholly different level of quality. There's hardly any hit indicators when you get shot, all the sound effects are horrible and RAC/2 sounds are even completely broken. All the custom models are ugly as well, looking like they're straight from Mechwarrior 2, making a weird combination with the pretty Crysis graphics. Mech running animations are borderline nonexistent and tank movement feels very arcade and stupid. The combined arms thing is pretty cool (counting out the useless battle armor) but that doesn't make up for all the other problems.

 I don't understand why people insist MWLL must be the greatest game ever because MWO decided to block your dev team. That doesn't make games good, that makes games dead.

I was not trolling in game. Don't the forum rules prohibit slander? Reported.

Well I am somewhat saddened that MWLL was not a better game. I guess betrayed expectations can make people mad, no?

This is hardly slander. Hearsay sure, but slander not even close.  Trolling could mean a whole slew of things and there is no context here.

There is only one hit indicator you need. Your cbill counter. If that's going up you're dealing damage. I'd also argue that most sounds are lightyears better than than what is found in MWO. As far as the models, the older ones are definitely showing their age. Remember the mod is several years old. It's bit unfair to 1:1 compare models against a game that was just released.
