New podcast on this subject
Discussion thread by moderator
In NoGutsNoGalaxy podcast "Mechs, Devs, & Beer #2: Russ Bullock" it was announced.
3rd Person view is coming.
Why and How?
It seems new players have problem with torso twist, legs and movement and the coordination required to pilot the mech, according to Russ.
So they want to help, by showing via the 3rd person view.
They also plan to add a "way" to define wich type of play the match will have: 1st person, 3rd person or both.
This can be done via your House/Merc/Clan settings on community warfare.
So you will be able to choose only to play against other 1st person players, or 3rd, or allow any of the two.
The official thread has been closed, and an "update" posted. In it it is said that a "Command Chair" post will be made on the subject.
Let's wait for that post and see.
Meanwhile : the "update" post
