Can you tell us what content you anticipate the game to actually launch with?

A bit of a further breakdown for anyone wondering, based off of just mechs destroyed (this doesn't include cap wins or the like):
Since open beta this works out to ~7200 mechs being blowed up good, per hour, since open beta started back on October 16th. Again, this is a very rough estimate, I just did a straight months -> hours.

That also works out to an average of 465 matches per hour, although this again is a rough estimate because not all 16 mechs are blowed up good, and sometimes no mechs suffer that fate.

Still, that's quite a bit of playtime in general since open beta started, and with a relatively minimal marketing push. Would be interesting to see this kind of release 6 months after the aforementioned launch date.

Curious if it will get launched in September and if there is any significant progress made by then.

EDIT: annoying typo + the following question: What will be included into the release?
Do we get yet another "founder pack", about six new MC only Mechs and a new alteration of an already well known map? Or will there be some "more"?

Very good to hear

But what happens to our mechs currently in our bays?

Also...
Launching this game with the PPC Boating situation...not wise

That is a grand total of 5 more patches. We got some leaps and bounds to make. I cannot wait to see what July is going to bring.

Sounds good, at least we've got a date for it now!

It will be interesting to see what changes between now and then though...

Forgive me if I take this with a grain of salt. I will be happy though if the game makes great strides by then and I have nothing but positive hopes for you(PGI) in the future.
