Who are you trying to convince? People that will come here playing 3PV, or founders who paid you to NOT put in 3PV in the first place? I'm not convinced of such sentiment, so frankly that is the most sad marketing ploy ever.

I give up putting in useful questions... because my simple suggestion of putting colored kill-death messages (using teammate/enemy colors) has fallen on deaf ears... again.


I'm a founder. I want 3pv. Feel like editing your sentence yet?

Thank you for the answer Bryan, I feel bad to have been so hard-nosed about the question but it was starting to feel like it was being ignored.

Sure, I wish the news had been better but I understand you guys can't do everything at once. Just please understand that a lot of your players are very frustrated with current weapon balance and especially SRMs.

I hope the ridge fix going live next patch helps tone down the sniping meta. I think it will but only playing will tell.

Nope.. except for maybe adding most next to Founders.

Hey look, it's a non-founder lecturing a founder on what the majority of founders want.

If I had any demographic of player representing me. It would be the one outside that demographic entirely. Makes sense.

I'm a founder, unlike you. I want 3PV, unlike you. Voice your opinions for yourself, not yours for us.

You could have skipped that because that was a whole lot of nothing.And why was this question not answered?Surely it's not hard to answer.

Why are so many graphical features which have previously been working been removed completely, rather than being made available through higher graphics settings for those of us with hardware able to run it? I understand the desire to let the game run on lower-end machines, but surely this is why low graphics settings exist in the first place!

This is general knowledge discussed many times before.

They were lowered for the sake of low end gaming machines.

Eventually us enthusiasts will get our time to shine.

They are focused on making sure everyone can play at the moment.

It looks like they will give us more options once UI 2.0 comes out.

I've read too many threads that have founders mentioning it over and over and over. OBVIOUSLY NOT ALL FOUNDERS SHARE IN THAT. However, I also keep seeing photos of exacting statements from the devs speaking EXPLICITLY ABOUT 3PV INCLUSION IN THE GAME. It's not as if it wasn't a well mentioned point that has come time after time.

I will not speak for founders, but it is not as if Founders haven't mentioned it time after time is a fallacy at best. It has been said, it doesn't mean ALL OF THEM ARE SAYING IT.

Please post a short video of the internal 3PV gameplay. If it is as you say the video will calm the current rage.

Enough soapbox. Nothing you stated justifies your remarks when you In Fact attempted to speak for us. Just more excuses.

Hmmm... how many founders are in this forum... 100 perhaps 200? There were 60.000 - 75.000 founder... Speaking in their name is impossible

If a video was done to show the effect of ECM or Seismic... the forums would have exploded long before this. They keep telling us "it'll be fine", but whenever it comes to "show me" on that day of reckoning... well, the results speak for themselves.

hawk819: With the Clan Weapons just announced in the last Ask the Devs, I (and maybe a thousand others) want to know: What will become of the OmniMechs? Mad Cat? Vulture? etc.
A: They will show up in the future at some point.

Huh? Can someone show me this, I can't find anything out Clan Weapons in the last ask the devs?

I feel like Ask the Devs shouldn't happen anymore. We're all looking for teasers and real information, you want to release that kind of stuff on your schedule, and the number of pointless answers is getting staggering.

I'm not saying I don't appreciate the time it takes to do this, I'm just saying that as much as we're craving communication, this is not the communication we're looking for. I'd rather see a small weekly write-up with some teasers and things you want to tell us, rather than making us guess at the tidbits you're actually free to talk about.

aniviron: How far from your ideal state of balance is the game at
this time? It's a hot topic on the forum now as always, but I feel
that the game is the most balanced it has been since the launch
of closed beta, even if it has a ways to go yet. Are there many
things that you still want to tweak? What would your optimal
state of game balance look like?
A: Ideal balance would be a middle ground where most weapons,
mechs, and equipment are very useful in specific situations, and
weak in others. We need to tweak a lot of aspects still, so we’re
definitely not there yet, but as you said, we’re getting closer and
we continue to chart a course to a nice balance.


Ahahaha no

They need to resolve splash damage before messing with the flight path. The current pattern could be fine after splash damage comes back.

Interesting notes; the next patch (i.e. the "Big July update") will speak volumes over any ATD responses, though.
