All along I have warned canon supporters that the developers could twist weak canon or take advantage of blanks. I feel for the sake of the game being a success among existing MMO, especially those with territory play. They really do need to think out of the box and not mech MechWarrior 5, but make MechWarrior Online. I say this because the way many people talk on this forum is as if they expect a sort of MechWarrior 5. I also feel developers need some room to be creative even if just a little.
The recent developer update states...
Is this 10 unique to the world of MechWarrior and Battlemech do you think? That is pretty much how I read it. It also states
approximately 40 different chassis at open beta, with new variants added at a very regular pace.
So I'm thinking the other mechs are as expect, the unique ones are a bit new, something to surprise us and advance the series of games a little. Which I'm happy with and look forward to.
What is your opinion?
