So, Russ had claimed we were getting a small content update. Content. He even specified that it wasn't going to be a mech chassis. So, apparently, Russ believes that reskins and hardpoints being moved around is content that we should be excited for. What's next Russ? Saying we're getting a big content update, and handing us the bill for your car payments directly? Really Russ, did you actually expect us to get excited for this? I wouldn't have minded if you hadn't told us that content was coming. If this had been suddenly released, I might have actually been interested.

Either give us ACTUAL content, like colorblind support, HTAL, rear view cameras, or literally anything besides a goddamn mech to buy. I was disappointed with the event as your announcement, but the mechs are just an insult.

I somehow fooled myself into hoping that maybe the announced content would be PvE, so I could finally start enjoying the game again. Quick play has gotten stale very quickly and faction play seems pretty much dead.

Guess I'll go figure out where I stashed my MW4 Mercs disc instead. :(

I'm so disenfranchised I'd consider Weapons.XML edits on a patchly (...monthly patches...sad) basis content, because at least that could improve the game


But more robots? Half of which worthless, one of which full on P2W (on that specific chassis...which is a bad chassis)
That isn't content to me. That's another mechpack



Enough with the goddamn mechpacks!

The only "content" that really exists in this game are mechs.

This shouldn't shock anyone.

On the other hand, people have asked for Clan Heroes. And he did say way back that they were working on them. Poor timing for the release, perhaps, but it was a requested item.

Yeah, this wasn't exactly what I had in mind. On the other hand, at least a few of them have some unique hard points, so that's something I guess?

It's not the timing. Mechs are fine. Advertising them as content and trying to hype it as mystery content is the problem. That he specifically said it wasn't mechs was an outright lie.

Technically, he was correct

It's not new chassis
It's reskinned chassis's, nearly all of them using the LegoMech features needing minimal work to add additional guns (Cute Fox having new stuff)



I agree on the content, though. This was just...so disappointing.

I was hoping for the game mode, but instead we got this.

reading comprehension is a bit lacking.

He said we are not getting a "NEW" (emphasis added) chassis. Well, none of those mechs are new chassis.
This is probably why a lot of folks predicted that it was going to be the release of various Clan hero mechs.

Do not get me wrong, I am not trying to defend the content choices of Russ or PGI in general, but this is not one of the instances where we were mislead.

nope. But here, anyone will take advantage of people hating PGI and use this against them. Me myself, I could care less. But to inform is something I've always cared about doing.

Consider me a light Jaded Knight at most then.

Sad thing is there will most likely be a large number of enthusiastic, gullible buyers that think that this is actually CONTENT.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Russ thought that he was being very witty by using "all the best words" and saying that is wasn't a new chassis......get it, get it?....It was new VARIANTS, not chassis!!! Probably chuckled to himself thinking, "damn I'm a funny guy, I bet the players will laugh..." AND ANOTHER ISLAND IS BORN.

In my wildest dreams, Russ is shocked to see very mediocre numbers of sales and is left scratching his head wondering why.

Yup sorry Lauren nothing personal I know you worked hard to put these in, but I would have been more excited for a new mech than new skins. Cockpit glass weather effects or even my snide glowing atlas eyes toggle would have been better accepted.

I haven't played since FEB PGI! Do you think a camo I never see other than my mechlab will bring me back?

They're new variants. Technically.

Chassis is a entire new set of mech, per example,

a new Chassis coming soon is the Huntsman.

a new variant coming soon is the Kitfox purifier.

clarifying at this point.

Ah well, guess many were asking for them for awhile, so they will be happy.
