So having played the beta of this well over a year ago and only having access to US servers with 300+ pings I quickly gave it away. I heard they have now released oceanic servers and decided to give it another try.
Still not sold on the game but at least it hasn't locked me out with pings of around 50.
Big fanboy going back of the IP, feels like it has a reasonably steep learning curve getting heads around all the mechs and different combinations. Like the fact the matches last around 5-10 minutes and then straight back into it. Not a whole lot of variety on game modes, standard DM, capture objectives and capture the base.
Might stick with it for about another week before I make my mind up but would be good to see some more locals on.
i also found the latency too annoying to keep playing, just missing a few critical shots really sucks. especially in such a tactical game like mechwarrior.
I love the setting and enjoyed the old MechWarrior and Mech Commannder games a lot, I'll give it a shot now that local servers exist.
holy s*** this is news to me!! BACK I GO
I'm checking this out too. Crescent Hawks Inception was one of the first games I played on PC
I've been waiting for a new mechwarrior for decades... what???
