Piranha Wants Single-Player MechWarrior, But It’s ‘Tough’

You’ve been given dozens of alternative suggestions for how to improve – the most popular of which have ALL been based around systems which DID exist prior to progression 2. Using the core functionality that existed before progression 2. Not many players here are anti-monetisation. Many of us are even willing to admit that purely-cosmetic monetisation is unlikely to be a viable model although several successful long-lasting games HAVE managed to work with that model, too. Most of the suggestions players are making for improved progression include alternative monetisation options, and those options are ones proven by the industry to work. The fact remains – and remains unaddressed by the devs – that maintenance is a flawed model at its core. It’s been proven by repeated market research to be a major factor in pushing players away from games.

MechWarrior Online open beta on again for Monday

Read times. MarauderD Lieutenant Posts: So it turns out ELO is going away with the patch today.

Armored Warfare isn’t “just like” World of Tanks, it’s practically identical. One of the biggest aspects about MechWarrior Online that I love is the way There’s the basic matchmaking, which will group you into teams on a random into the game, with community warfare being much more of an endgame.

Get the latest news and videos for this game daily, no spam, no fuss. First thing you notice is the game interface. It looks like is made for advertising and social media not a mech game interface. If there weren’t mechs around you couldn’t tell this game is related to MW4. At first you get 4 mechs you can’t configure.

This are “training” mechs except this game has no training to speak of, you’re thrown into matches with full upgraded mechs. I has 2 games where the entire team was killed without even seen who shot us. Great training! All over the internet you find this nice gameplay videos from MWO, all in daylight all full of cool moves.

Massively Interview: Piranha Games’ Russ Bullock talks MechWarrior Online

Regarding the COV virus and its effects: Things are frustrating, and confusing, and scary. People dream up conspiracy theories to help make sense of things. They’re not helpful, though, and only serve to make the world more confusing and scarier. We’re not going to have that here. And we swear to God, if anyone comes in here and starts spouting off QAnon bullshit about COVID or literally anything else, you are going to get permabanned so thoroughly that your grandchildren won’t be allowed to post here.

The first big event in MechWarrior Online, currently running! To promote a better battle experience, some key Community Warfare Matchmaking Status percentages will now update properly when players are grouped.

My wife is the developer of a mod for a year-old game [0], which she forked from another mod about a year ago. The reason for the fork? The other mod made missiles follow slightly wider turning arcs, so they were harder to dodge by going around corners. It seems like a tiny difference, but high-level competitive players want their missiles exactly right because different missile tracking leads to different viable tactics. The primary developer of the other mod was not a high-level competitive player and did not see this as a problem.

Merely suggesting the fix which my wife originally coded as a patch to the other mod , with simulations, a mathematical proof of correctness, and uniformly positive feedback from many top-level pilots, was enough to touch off a flamewar that wasn’t settled for weeks. People can be fanatical about their video games. That’s awesome, I’m glad to hear there are still folks playing Descent. Truly an underrated multiplayer game.

Fine, a history lesson then. While the IS has been trying to work out how the guns they use actually work and wasting all their resources shooting at each other, the Clans had been developing and improving all their tech. The clans, though, had a number of flaws. They were bred and conditioned to avoid waste in battle, so all fights were conducted according to a set of rules called zellbrigen. These rules were, frankly, ridiculous.

Before a battle, various clan leaders would bid for what resources they would need to win, with the honour of fighting going to the lowest bidder.

Bugs aside, it bodes well for what so many veterans are likely waiting for the eventual launch of MWO’s metagame Community Warfare. Share: May 1,

The factions will battle for control of worlds, which provide bonuses to the controlling faction. There are three types of planets in the game:. At times, planets will change status between core, faction, and border. This will facilitate the dramatic changes in territorial control that take place during the canon MechWarrior timeline. At launch it will take only a single match to determine control of a planet. This will very likely change in the future, requiring sequenced matches to control a planet.

Another interesting tidbit to note is that the community warfare aspect of the game will not be implemented until a short time within 90 days after launch.

MechWarrior Online’s Community Warfare mode: our thoughts

Playing in the beta for a while now has given me some great access to some fantastic content. This is your chance to test it, find bugs, and leave feedback as the developers continue to improve and add features. I put together clips from some recent matches to showcase a bit of gameplay and also, because I just really wanted to.

TheXGX asked a question. I can’t find a match in any game mode anymore. It was working fine until last night but since then, I cannot find a match. My network is fine. Other games work fine. I’ve tried everything, including a complete Windows and game reinstall this morning, but nothing has helped.

Lots of hype but MWO is a gameplay disater.

This weekend MWO celebrated it’s launch on Steam with an event update” planned for Faction Warfare, the persistent territorial control game hat on in the meantime is a greater emphasis on community participation and eSports. it’s because the matchmaking uses smaller groups and novice players.

Hopefully, developer Piranha Games has fixed the stability issues that will have delayed it for almost two weeks. Other issues the developer has tried to address during the delay are improved matchmaking, balance tweaks, and pushing the Community Warfare feature back.

Played a bunch last night. Good times! The latest patch has really opened up some great mech options at all levels with the addition of Endo Steel, Ferro Fibrous Armor, and Double Heat Sinks. Double Heat Sinks made it possible for me to core most mechs in two alphas. They do, there are just some issues to work out with the engine slots. You can get them working just fine if you strip the mech first and build from the ground up.
