We can assume that we will have a limit to the number of points we can allocate to our avatar. Unless its unlimited, there'd be no point in leveling 30 separate mechs. Also with 3 trees in each mech, if you REALLY want all the points you can get in all three trees all youll need is 3 mechs. And thats only if its capped per mech.
What im wondering is if the Varient, or the Chasis is limited by role.
Sure there will be a limit, but I doubt you'll reach it by maxing out one mech. They say you'll only get pilot points at certain branches in the mech tree. That means you'll give mech skill quicker than pilot skills (or at least points). You'd have to have a substantially shorter pilot tree to have them line up. Plus it would be bad for longevity for you to max you character on one mech. You'll only ever have one pilot. In theory you'd be expect to go through a number of mechs. Especially as they release more over time.
The thing I'd be more curious about is if you can eventually max all the pilot trees or if you can only have a portion of the skills?
