They have a Piranha in the fish tank.
I know a few people I would like to swim with the fishes

Also I want that King Crab Statue....hey we need a King Crab Statue Cockpit Item....so when you kill a mech the claws open and close and walks over and bangs on the cockpit glass. Or even better....it pops out of steaming pot and the claws open and close...then snaps a nearby clan statue in half with its killer claws.

Hey, have you guys ever thought of selling mech statues and shipping them to die hard fans. I would definitely get the Mauler Mech.

Nice seeing Tina doing her VLOGs again.

One more thing, I am still hoping for a 16 weapon Atlas. However, my Boar's Head Atlas use to have a -25 Critical Hit Chance...Please put it back.

By the way Nice VLOG

I already have bought my ticket PGI. And I only care about the final matches, the future game plans Russ is going to present and.. foood!.

I expected to see more info regarding the game itself in the Vlog rather than hype hype for mechcon. They are not selling many tickets by the looks of it.

Wait, they actually have a marketing guy?!

Has anyone ever seen any marketing from PGI, ever?

EDIT: I'm wishing him good luck, incidentally. I'd love to see PGI do some serious marketing.

Marketing? No. You can buy stuff here? INSANE.
Is there anything worthwhile of information in this log, couldnt watch it yet, other than the stuff about the con?

After the infamous "we don't need community suggestions, we perfectly know what to do", Tine went in forum proposing Dev-Vlog.
The entire community asked NOT for Dev-vlog, but for interacting with devs, some sort of "ask the devs".

Thanks to listen to the community, community manager Tina.

GG clothes.

edit: also, proposing suites, and such..... you really have no idea about how much funny and ridiculous this crap sounds :D :D :D :D :D

Haven't seen Paul or Bryan for a while.

And that's a very well-fed looking piranha...

Piranhas are Swarm Fish, should be kept in groups of at least 5-8 individuals and need a tank min. size 300cm/800L.

Pretty sure it was said in a Town Hall stream that they'd love to sell physical mech merchandise but they can't because of licensing issues with the copyright holders.

Yep Battletech licensing seems to be a nightmare.

FWIW production value seemed to take a dip from the previous videos, the sound levels were poorly managed and the lighting rig wasn't ideal either (glare off the glass tank / TV screen in the center of the frame).

I didn't get much out of the video except for the hotel room info, this is actually a very common and helpful thing that many conventions do, and having more than one option for a group rate is appreciated.

Yeah the damnable licensing issues! I swear certain holders just do it out of biased spite. Seriously if all holders could co-operate they could make alot of money. And bring the Battletech franchise together as something that can draw more peoples interest and enthsiasm towards simulator and mech games in general. But oooh-no! Solve it alredy, stubborn stubs.

Anyway really nice to see another Dev Log with Tina and folks Posted Image
Hope you who go have alot of fun over in Canada.
