The opposing teams kept making excuses as to why they were fighting like cowards, they would say things like, "We don't fight this way cuz we fail as warriors, we fight this way cuz it is smart strategy, it is good tactics, and we swear you are wrong about us doing it cuz we cant pilot, and we cant aim, and and we can't fight, and we couldn't hit the broad side of a dropship."
So anyways last nite I decided to prove that my theory was correct, that their claims of strategy and tactics were a bunch of bs, and that they were in fact cowards, and that they did suck as mechwarriors, and I decided to prove that the reasons why they spam LRM salvo while hiding behind mountains, and the reason they gang up on mechs 5 ojn 1, is because they have no skill as warriors and it is the only way they can win a battle.
Last nite I went into a battle with a Commando, with a SRM 4 and a SRM 6 and a total of 30 shots, and I only had a armor factor of 161. Before the battle began, I made a challenge to the opposing team and heres what I said,"Opposing team, I will take each one of you on 1 on 1 in the center of this map and none of my teamates will interfere, If I manage to destroy half your teamates in 1 on 1 combat, if I destroy 4 of your mechs in 1 on 1 combat, the remaining 4 of you have to leave the game and we win the battle, if i fail to take out half your team, if I fail to destroy 4 of your teamates in 1 on 1 combat and your team destroys my Commando, then the rest of my teamates, all 7 of them, we will leave this match and you will automatically win the fight, do you accept my challenge?"
They accepted my challenge, and I fought 4 of their mechs, one after another, in 1 on 1 combat. I destroyed a Raven first, then I destroyed a Laser Hunchback, then I destroyed a Awesome, and finally I destroyed a Yen Lo Wang. surprisingly they honored the rules of the challenge and the remaining 4 of them disconnected and my team won the match. I had proved my point and I proved that yes, the reason why 90% of the MWO community fights the way that they do, the real reason why they fight the way that they do, is because they suck as mechwarriors and they cant beat me or any other seasoned mechwarrior in a 1 on 1 fight.
Seriously, I've been playing mechwarrior games since mechwarrior off the SNES, I've been playing paper battletech tournaments since before the Clans even existed, I remember playing in paper battletech tournaments back when the 4th succession war hadn't even ended, I've been playing Mechwarrior/Battletech games for not quite 24 years, I know what a real Mechwarrior/Battletech game is, and this isn't a true mechwarrior game. They need to change the name of this game from MWO/Mechwarrior online to MCO/MechCowards Online.
Seriously, the only cowardly fighting tactic I haven't seen in this game so far is players going kamikaze with their mechs and self destructing next to severely damaged enemy mechs, but I am sure that once Piranha implements ejecting/self destruct in this game, players in MWO, excuse me, sorry, MCO, will stat doing that too! How much you wanna bet when players in MCO start ejecting and self destructing their mechs, how much you wanna bet those players say the exact same ********, "Its good tactics! It's good strategy! We don't do it cuz we fail as mechwarriors we swear!".
Anyways guys I am sorry but MWO isn't a true mechwarrior game, I am going to go play mechwarrior Tactics. Mechwarrior Tactics is a actual true mechwarrior game. I have talked to all my old school battletech gaming buddies and they agree that MWO is not a real battletech/mechwarrior game and that we are not going to waste our money and time on MWO.
If any MWO moderators read this and you decide to ban my account I want you to know that you will be doing me a huge favor and I will be grateful. As a 24 year battletech/mechwarrior player I do not wish to be affiliated with MWO. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on different games in the battletech/mechwarrior franchise these past 24 years, I know a actual battletech/mechwarrior game when I see one, and I don't want to spend a single penny on MWO. My money is going towards Mechwarrior Tactics.
You can call an apple and orange as much as you want. You can wan't the apple to be an orange and you can refuse to accept the fact that an apple is an apple. Guess what guys? It is still an apple!
You can want MWO to be a mechwarrior game. You can call MWO a mechwarrior game. You can refuse to accept the fact that MWO isn't a true mechwarrior game. Guess what guys? IT'S STILL NOT A MECHWARRIOR GAME!
As a 24 year mechwarrior/battletech player I know that MWO isn't a true mechwarrior game. My best freind who has been playing mechwarrior/battletech for 25 years knows that MWO isn't a real mechwarrior game. I am really sorry guys but MWO is not a true mechwarrior game!
Anyways you guys can feel free to say whatever you want in response to this post. I don't really care if any of you disagree with me and my old school battletech buddies feelings on MWO. I got a Mechwarrior Tactics beta key now, so i won't be wasting my time on MWO anymore,. If any of you want to face some real Mechwarriors come face us on mechwariors tactics. See you guys.
