I guess I have to ask what you mean by play fair. Its a combat game the idea is to take out your foe, If a pilot is not targeting weak spots than they are a not a Mech pilot, if someone removes armor in an area you shoot that area, If the weapons are in the arms you take them off, If the Mech is to fast, has weak legs or you just want to limit & control thier ability to move. you take thier legs...winning or completing the mission IS the point after all. anyone who dosnt is going to be an easy kill & get thier wing killed too.

- Play to win fairly
- Cheat to win unfairly
Personally, I find that people who use glitches in a game (hidden wall/terrain spots, hacks, etc.) are the ban of having fun in a game. Since this is a community game though, and the servers are directly controlled by PGI, I seriously doubt anyone using a glitch will last very long once they are reported.
As far as 'legging' or weak points on certain chassis, that's not a big deal in my opinion. That type of strategy is will be available to everyone, meaning that everyone can take advantage of it in order to improve their chances. Also the reason it's implemented as a 'strategy' and not a 'cheat'.

And that's all one needs to really enjoy a game. Now I'm pretty sure that with this game there are going to be people that want others to "use a certain weapon" or not use a certain weapon because it's considered op..my thoughts are this. 'Whats op?' In Mechwarrior I've discovered something glorious. No weapon is over powered.
ya Ton for Ton, damage to heat, the best weapon in the game Canon is a Small Laser....it just sucks with crits
But ya it's all in the eye of the beholder, what i do to kill you may be unfair in your mind and what u do to kill me may be unfair in my mind it all depends on how the devs handle Cheaters.
Personally i say do what that one company is doing, throw all the cheaters in a closed server together, and they can cheat all they want and leave the rest of us alone

All the rest is just tactical decisions and strategies...that isnt cheating it is training...

It should be:
Play to Win?
Play to the Spirit of the books?
That's why I think "Drop Tonnage" should be part of the XP factoring and Restrictions.
What kind of challenge is it if the lance drops with (2) Jenners (2) Cats and (8) Atlas?

In reality, nobody would refuse to leg or take head shots because it's "unfair", except for maybe some honour code types like Clan or Kurita.
Me, I plan to make sure the other side dies, however.
Obviously this is within the confines of the game, and I do NOT like hacking or anything cheating.
But if it's legal, its fair.

I gave up on fairness in Kindergarten.

Your not dead and your enemy is... that doesn't count as winning?
