While you may or may not enjoy getting SQUAWKed at in-game, it's become clear that you feel the same way as we do about MechWarrior. Everyone reading this likely loves Battletech and almost everything associated with giant stompy robots. However it's obvious that there are many issues at hand within our community. Many player groups are reporting fewer and fewer bodies showing up to play each day. The biggest complaint we're hearing about MechWarrior is that it's just not fun to play anymore. This has hit a critical mass lately with the apparent lack of attention that has been paid to the community's various woes. Granted the signal noise ratio has been quite high, but I'm convinced the community has some great ideas that are being overlooked.
The inevitable question is, of course "What, if anything, can we do to make MWO fun to play again?" This is the question we've been asking ourselves at WoL as well. Your posts are a good start, but that isn't going to be enough. We, as a community, have to band together and take decisive action to reclaim the game we love.
Let's figure out the answer to the above question together, as a community. Join us for the first ever MWO Community Town Hall, this Thursday, July 25th, at 9 PM EST at the below mumble server, for a moderated discussion on how we as a community can save our game:
If you are a unit leader or group representative seeing this and want a voice in the discussion, please PM Stalkerr on the MWO forums prior to the Town Hall, so we can set you up with Priority Speaker status. Invite your unit members and your friends!
We're taking this to twitter as well. PGI seems to love hash tags, so let's rally around this idea, and #saveMWO.
