No, he means that PGI Employees are now getting access to the Orbital Bombardment consumable... they'll be Beta Testing it on us at random times throughout the next month or so... :P

It would be nice if they started mixing up the content delivery. For those of us who are going to pass on the Hero Mech, we have to wait for next patch to get really excited.

I'd like to see the map and the hero then next week the new chassis. That would string me along for the whole month.

I said it in another thread too, but the only thing that could make that a more accurate depiction of air strikes is if the BOOM BOOM BOOM were replaced with a little "pop pop poof."

Everyone was terrified that Artillery and Airstrikes would be pay to play. Then it came. Now everyone cries because they suck. Well, yeah... We cried them into feeling inadequate. Even Bob from that commercial stopped smiling.

The strength of a feature is always a factor in being pay-to-play. Nobody cares if something's weak.
