I like the new buy menu, but would like it to list free tons. Not a huge deal.
The progression through the lower ranks feels a bit slow. It would be nice to have a bit faster progression there, but keep it slow-ish as you get higher. We were tossing around the idea of progression modifiers based on your current rank. The higher the rank the slower the progression, etc.
Devs already know about the map loading modified files bug. Hotfix on the way.
The Owens are not as underpowered as I had thought. They aren't starter brawler mechs, but they do tend to print money with their C3 and BAP and long range pokey weapons. But don't get caught out alone in them.
Ullers are now much more capable.
I like the 8 categories of mechs instead of 4. Late starters in solis and osirises can make good bank.
I'll try to make some videos, I was too busy playing to make any this weekend, except this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aN_UAGYYetc
. I doubt this is an 0.8 bug, but it was kind of hilarious.
