    Oh heck yes.

    Definitely updating my Beta status >D

    MMO's played: Ragnarok Online (For years), WoW (for a few weeks only), Guild Wars, Lineage 2, Eve, Allods, Shattered Galaxy, 9 Dragons, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Star Trek Online (Got someone ELSE to pay for it), Champions Online (Someone else paid), Dofus, Dragonica, LOTRO, DDO and more... A LOT more. I've played good AND bad. The bad didn't last long. :P

    I played all the original MMO's that came out before UO and EQ. NWN on AOL, Shadows of Yserbius... and Multi Player Battletech. God that game was just amazing! No game got strategy and tactics better. It's sad when I find more enjoyment out of old out of date games built on out of date graphics and technology. If that doesn't say something about the state of the gaming industry I just don't know what will. I am so excited for this game. In many many many ways it's going to play ALOT like Multi Player Battletech. It'll be like playing one of the original MMO's. I just can't wait. This game can't come soon enough.

    I cannot wait for this game to be released, the videos so far look amazing and I have such great nostalgic memories of Mechwarrior :D

    their profile thing is extensive. they ask alot of interesting questions. rather impressed it seems they actually want testers not just joe blow. so they get a thumbs up from me on that atleast going by their signup part. 

    be interesting how this game runs. from what i have seen it looks like it will be a tad like WoT in that its going to be a mini battle "lobby"  kinda funny they actually ask if you played WoT :P

    LMAO after reading the survey while doing it, i'm tempted to drop this like a hot rock:

     

    "How much money do you expect to pay?" HUH? lol how can u awnser this without knowing the quality/type of gameplay, or anything else? Its not something you go into with a plan without knowing anything about it.

     

    Also the survey refuses to accept that I haven't played any mechwarrior games in the past, and won't let me advance until I've said 'yes' to all the questions and picked one of the games on the list, for the questions related to previous mechwarrior games. Also find this amusing.

     

    But it will be intresting, be stepping into territory I haven't touched(Althoug I suspect mechwarrior gameplay would be similar to ace online yet restricted to the ground?)

    how have you not tried atleast 1 MW?  there is the MW: merc for free to download as well most people looking at MW:O  have some experiance with the past games, much like D3 is related to D1-D2 and WoW is related to WC ect.. 

    but i do agree with you the money questions bothered me, i simply rated i would pay if i found it was needed.  which is true f2p games always require you to "sub" to some extent but meh STO and WoT i have never needed to "sub" anything to it to get to a fair level :P

    as for the ace online.. hard to say  there is a slight differance between asian mecha and mechwarrior least from the games i have played.

    you should try and score your self a copy of MW:merc so you can get a slight feel of the game they are trying to emulate, it is freeware

    Very simple... If you are the kind of player that actually pay in F2P games or are you the kind of person who don't.. then answer accordingly.

     

    Any way with my usual luck  i will be waiting a long time for my invite

    This have been a good conversation

  • BrenelaelBrenelael MaineMember Posts: 3,797 Uncommon
    In answer to the "How much would you pay?" question I just chose "Whatever it takes to get what I want". This is the best answer as it doesn't obligate you as "Whatever it takes" could be absolutely nothing. This answer also doesn't imply that you plan to be a freeloader either. I'm not saying I won't buy stuff if it turns out to be a good game but they will have to prove to me two very important things first.
     
    1. That the game is a quality product that will be around for the long haul.
    2. That the game isn't "Pay to Win" with over powered weapons or perks you can only get by using the Item Shop.
     
    Once I'm convinced of these two things I will gladly pay for some stuff to help support the game.

    Exactly, I dont understand why people were flustered or confused by this question, they gave ample responses for various budgets (including nothing) or even 'As much as I need to get what I want' which is a pretty open response for 'I dont know, depends on what you are selling'.
