1) You're comparing a finished product to an unfinished one.
2) Some of the things you mention aren't even in canon with the lore MWO is based on. There's no such thing as "flushing coolant".
1) Not quite - officially, they're both in Beta. And graphics-wise, MWO is way more polished thanks to a newer engine and a larger budget.
2) The matchmaking is in no way canon either, nor is the lack of a salvage mechanic. Flushing coolant might be "fictional", but it adds a nice gameplay element.
Also, you can't deny that MWO borrows very heavily from the aforementioned free2play tank game (which isn't a completely bad thing), with many elements that are not canon either.
Hands down, at the current state, the two are on par, MWO has the looks, MW:LL has the brains.
