Is it that hard to watch?

Might want to schedule a bug bash month at some point. The new features are great, but we get new annoyances, like resetting weapon groups or reintroduced ghosting (motion blur) with every other new addition.

Looks like he may need some Biotherm for the eyes.

They tend to ramble and do not get to the point very quickly so yes it can be difficult to watch. Glad that its coming though.

Thanks for the news. Once you announce the date of the patch where the first CW stuff goes in, I'll buy a new chunk of MC. Once it's demonstrated the matchmaker can consistently do fun IS vs Clan Matches, I'll buy some more. And when we get to fight over planets I'll buy a whole lot more.

About new maps - finishing off the ones you had planned sounds good. But after that, is there any way you can start rolling out variants of each map with different geometry ? I don't care If the same buildings, objects, textures, effects, overall lighting, sky etc are the same - but having 5 different Forest Colonies, 5 different caustic valleys, etc would add soooooo much to CW. I don't know if that is technically feasible. If you crowd sourced it I bet you'd get a ton. I don't have those skills but I'd drop my butt off testing them if it helped.

With regards to modules, does this mean some of the older variants will be getting the proper amount of module slots?
  • Jenner-7F
  • Hunchback-4P
  • Catapult-K2
  • Awesome-8R
  • Stalkers (all of them)
These mechs all have reduced module slots which doesn't really make much sense in the current state of the game. I hope they receive the same number of modules as the other mechs have.

It's a waste of time to watch, I pick up information faster through written text then trying to struggle listening to useless podcasts or blogs. It's easier for many to just read text, it's also a better option, afterall at least we can then interpret the words they used instead of the implications or intonations they put into their words used in the video. AKA easier to dissect actual information...

I do think Russ said so, like using existing assets to create new maps faster
joining alpine with forest colony for instance (I think he said)

Good info, but IMO Mech Module changes and Mastery changes are completely the wrong direction. Weapon modules are mostly useless, reducing the Mech Modules (all the good stuff - seismic, zoom, TIG, etc) are mech modules. Dropping the default down to 1 is lame, and mastery should grant another one regardless. Always having two consumable slots means everyone can take arty/airstikes without any sacrifice of Mech Modules. If anything should be constrained it should be the consumables, not the mech modules.

Community Created Maps would be awesome. From what I've seen of people posting their own content concepts this would be a very welcome and refreshing site.

For my part, I think it was an excellent video, and I'll watch it, again, tomorrow when I have a better attention span to pick up more. However, thank you for the Merc Unit Creation module news, and here's hoping it's not just creation, but at least some management tools, as well. I'm beginning to like, again, what you guys are doing; thank you for going back to canon, and for mentioning that you're trying to do so. It will be a challenge to pilot my 'Mechs under the new Jump Jet rules, but THAT is something I'm looking forward to.

Kinda wish you would make the master slot an any slot. Most weapons modules are no good..
Yeah, I agree, this is crap, I won't even use Weapon Modules at all, and I hardly ever use consumables. Please allow us to choose which, on Mastery, we prefer to have? Thank you.

MAPS
I want to see all of the maps from the previous MechWarrior games, especially MechWarrior III, in this game. Those were some of the most awesome maps in that game, or from any of the previous MechWarrior games, including IV, though they had some nice ones, too.

Great update and best vlog yet (content and presentation) in my opinion! I appreciate the late night (early AM for us east coasters) posting of this.

I like the idea of more net module slots per mech, but agree with others that it would be nice to choose that hard earned extra master slot .

Keep up the good work on the communication and progress with the game. This game keeps getting better with each successive patch.

Onward to CW!

The new module system has very little info on, but it seems full of fail already.

The weapon mods? Utterly useless. I guess this is a way of 'forcing' players to use them. I'd rather see weapon mods that reduced heat and range instead of increased heat and range (It'd make lasers like the mediums more viable, IMO).

Consumables REALLY need to be dropped to one. It's already "take arty and air" then throw in another module for personal preference like Radar Dep.





But new maps?

Meeesooooohapppppeh!

It seems like they are trying to force people to use consumables and those horrible weapon modules by limiting each mech to only 1 mech module slot. Such a bad idea in an otherwise good batch of news.
