    This isn't meant to be Tribes Ascend.

    You're piloting a 100 ton Mech FFS.

    So a video is posted which is obviously for people to post comment and opinions. I found it boring so that somehow disqualifies me from posting? who made these rules up? you? 

    How am i being ignorant if i find combat boring and yes i did play all classic MW games.

    ive played faster paced mech games on consoles and loved it..  Seeing this video makes me realize, the faster paced mech games is where its at...

     

    I Wont try this game, unless it has a faster Scout type mech suit... but your right Ruff Ruff *pant* i shouldnt voice my opinions on a Discussion... That would be blasphemy..

    Depends on the type of machine you are driving. Heavy armor/heavy weapon Mechs will be slower then the smaller lighter Mechs.

    Think of it this way. Heavy Mech is the tank while the smaller mech is your DPS.

    yea like i was saying, if they have Faster scout type mechs that have limited jump/booster flight style where i can jump, strafe and bust caps.. im down.. but if all the suits are sluggish and clunky like this... i dont see my self playing it..

    I do wish this game was less World of Tanks like and had more mmo to it. Perhaps assaultable clan (guild) bases etc... Either way I'm stoked and I have several friends that can't wait either. You nay sayers require games with minimal strategy and instant gratification which is why every other kill in games like CoD it blasts rock music and tells you how great you are and you get some kind of "reward"

    There was a light mech at one point later in the video that ran between the 2 assaults going at it and he was cruising pretty good. =)

     

    1 on 1 mech combat is not where it's at, it's the team combat in various settings (urban, hills, whatever) that Mech combat truly shines.

    I does have very fast scout mechs. Light armor and minimal weaponary, but they have a major role in directing the heavies and assaults on the battlefield and harassing the larger mechs while avoiding much of their attacks (if you are good). Jumpjets also

    As much as I've missed the MechWarrior franchise, I'm not looking forward to lobby-room battles.  There doesn't seem to be much of an MMO aspect to it.

    As far as the video, looks promising but I would like to see a bit more of the how the game evolves outside of the combat aspect.

    A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true...

    There is no such thing as a "tank" or "dps" in MechWarrior as it is a pvp game and there is no such thing as "aggro".

    I see the WoT aspect as a good thing my self, seems MMOs are becoming more of a Casual cry fest then anything..

     

    Boohoo this guy put 25 more hours into the game than i did, and hes got better things than me... /cry thread.. *insert dumbing down of content here* .. Crybaby gets what he wants, Dude who actually played the game gets the shaft..

    I'm refering to the part of WoT that is lobby room battles not the gameplay or advancement aspects.

    I do know what an example is, and I also know what a poor and blatently wrong example is, which is what saying heavy mechs are tanks and light mechs are dps. Light mechs have minimal and small version weaponry and are designed to move fast and scout. A better example would be heavy mechs are like actual tanks (heavy, big cannon, lots of armor, relatively slow) where as a light mech is like a jeep(fast and light armored) medium mechs are somewhere in between.

    Yeah, but not like a typical mmo world where I go out and do quests. Even if it's a few cities for the different factions where you can interact with each other, an AH, queue up for pvp, but also have instanced guild bases that can be built up with winning and be assaulted by guilds you are at war with. I don't know as long as the combat is good I'll live. That kind of stuff can be difficult to implement
