Some of the first day players coming from 'classic' FPS games have problems getting into a mech simulation.
Many new players seem to have issues getting used to the mechanic of seperated controls for movement direction and viewing direction.
Adding of a 3rd person camera for trail mechs which get into battles only with other trail mechs.
In battles with a bought/owned mech the camera is fixed in cockpit view.
For testing purposes any owned and customized mechs can be taken into the trail matches as well.
But then the player neither gets any c-bill reward nor he will have any repair/rearm costs and only earning half XP for running in the 'simulator'.
- No split of the player base
- New players maybe find it easier to adopt the mech control mechanics
For participating in community warfare and tournaments first person view is mandatory.
