I was actually intrested in this game when the beta was announced awhile ago and completely forgot about it. Shame on me I know. But I have some quesitons. I know this game is basically Mechwarrior meets EvE, but I have some reservations about EvE more than its lack of WASD controls that prevent me from signing up to somethign that I'll instantly be bored with.
1) Is combat more actively involved than EvE? The reason I dislike EvE's combat system is not because of a lack of WASD controls, but becuase the combat isn't very involved. Its very much spread sheet vs spreed sheet since most of the combat mechanics rely on clicks, and not even timed ones at that. Does positioning matter more in this game? Are there skills to interrupt player actions?
2) How is their plex system? Is it viable, once established, to get a couple months of free play if you are dedicated? I'm not really worried about affording the sub to play this game. I'm just curious
3) How long, in real life time, does it take to get viable characters, sepficially combat focused. I wasn't very fond of EvE's real life time based progression since it allowed players who started early to have an edge forever. I know this was fixed well before EvE's ascent to critcal acclaime, but I still don't care for the mechanic. So are we talking a months or weeks of real life time?
