I remember the devs stating that it was time to go OB because they just couldnt ask any more from their cb testers.. since they were exhibiting signs of CB fatigue.
So,,, if you were not in CB and only joined after the game went Open Beta, are you experiencing Open Beta fatigue?

I'm from the Closed Beta and I'm not fatigued, I'm discouraged.

I had great hope for this game, but now seeing all the money ripping off thing getting implented over game contents is killing my interest in the game.

I'm still wating on the new game modes, having the collisions back, and at ranking system to see if I'll continue playing this game.

But the last camo renting thing blew some of my expectations away.
Add to this that the performance issue are present since what? the last 4 patches??

Not sure about open.

I'm in a similar boat Zolthar.

The money grabbing doesn't really bother me, but playing with friends/in organized groups (NGNG, Run Hot or Die League, etc...) was the main draw for me and 4 man groups put the kibosh on that.

Yes the devs talk a good game about Community warfare, and they say they'll bring back 8 man groups but I'm starting to doubt that they'll follow through.

It wasn't that they couldn't ask more of us...they just needed a larger sample of data from more players and PC configurations. There was more CB peeps could do, but it really boiled down to a larger data sample.

Since you seem to be interested, it's a suspension bridge.

I've started playing since Closed Beta and while I do agree that the game is shaping up well for the most part, I still see many things that worry me. Honestly, this game is not yet ready for live release, let alone Open Beta, which is why I'm surprised we're already at Open Beta stage. But then again, maybe I just have high expectations for a franchise that I loved since my childhood.

no it really boiled down to the founders money drying up and igp wanting more cash options. if you believe anything else you are just flat out ignorant.

Beta fatigue? No, I generally know what to expect in any kind of beta having been online gaming since the 90's.

4-man group fatigue, yes. Very much YES.

Open beta fatigue?

How do you get burned out or fatigued from playing a video game? I'll tell you how: you play it too much. Heres some suggestions:

Go outside, get laid, kiss your mom, throw the stick for the dog, play skyrim, have a beer, play some bball, read a book, get a job, draw, paint, write, compose, shower, exercise, go for a walk.

Just to name a few.

Seriously, guys, why do so many of you insist on coming on the forums to complain about a game that you play too much? Wouldn't it be better for all involved to just take a step away for a day/week or two? MWO wont fold while you're gone, and you just might gain a little perspective...

A big part of the draw for me was playing with friends. While I don't mind the groups being cut in half, most of those I played with due and are on hiatus until 8 player groups are reinstated. If PGI doesn't do this, they're all gone. And if my real life pals aren't playing, I won't be either.

Get a monster energy drink, that should spruce you up a bit.
