MechWarrior "Online" is simply a reboot of the Mechwarrior series. It is NOT an MMO. I'm fairly active on their forums quite a bit, and have had several lengthy discussions on there with the Mods themselves and they've admitted multiple times that MWO isn't an MMO.
It's the EXACT model as "World of Tanks". Instanced match-made matches similar to old FPS style gameplay where two teams are pitted against each other with 10-15 players in a match to run around a cube shaped map that is fairly tiny.
It's literally going to be NO DIFFERENT from how Mechwarrior 2, 3, or 4's multiplayer worked. Except, they're talking about the same "lobby" type interface that World of Tanks uses to manage your vehicles, EXP etc. The ONLY difference between Mechwarrior 4 and MWO is the fact that stats are tracked. THAT's IT. It's not a REAL MMO.
Didn't we have a whole lengthy discussion last year or so about how this site was posting information & forums about products that are NOT meant for an MMO site?
Don't believe me? You need to go into their forums & actually participate. They're not splitting hairs here, Mechwarrior "Online" is NOT going to be an MMO. Please remove it from this site as you're causing the WRONG type of Hype towards MechWarrior Online, and you risk damaging its launch potential.
