I mean, if they are implementing AI for MW5, it's no harm to add the same logic here, even if only in Private Lobby. Besides, MW5 won't have all mechs MWO has (because of the setting).


I would think that they would keep MWO PVP multiplayer and MW5 PVE single (+ co-op?) so you have a reason to play both, and I think Russ made a comment to that effect (minus the co-op part) somewhere, some time ago.

EDIT: that's leaving money on the table. If there was PvE in the Private Lobby, I would be playing this game everyday with some (very newbie) friends and/or with my own son. Since Private Lobby doesn't give C-Bills, I would be spending some serious real money to buy mechs for my son's account (the kid is six years old, you don't expect him to earn these C-Bills playing against other real players).

FIX THE BAD CPU AND GPU UTILISATION


This. This game does not run well enough when more graphically intensive games run far more smoothly on my system.

That's a great preview of the Nova Cat.

I'm really hoping that we get more info about FP. I'd really like to find out if there is any plan to start adding any sort of feature that expands on the mode in between battles, affect mech options, Faction Specific Mechs, Dynamic Alliances... anything that builds on what we have now would be a very welcome improvement.



Have you checked out the upcoming NBT Planetary League? https://www.netbattletech.com/ It sounds like it is everything that CW/FW/FP should have been and might be exactly what you are wishing for.

Just registered and waiting for a confirmation email before I can post on there. Do you know if there is a Clan Wolf unit recruiting?

Im still jumping with joy that the 2 dropship bugs have been fixed.

Pve is MW5. ik will be in mw5 or after mw5 in mwo if game gets engine ported. Quads probably never in cryengine, maybe if game gets ported.

HURRAY WERE GOING TO GET SOME COMMUNICATIVE INFO ON WHEN WERE GETTING NEW MAPS kast new map 14 months ago?? Someone has a timeline line image somewhere...

Hope we get info on being able to choose which dropzone to drop in.

The head in Living Legends is much more traditional and not a round ball. Also more bulky torso which also looks better.


That thing looks like its ready to topple over. I like the MWO version's upper body to legs proportion much better. The LL version is the guy that skips leg day everyday.

NGNG.tv had a pod cast about the League this evening and Phil (Sean Lang) said that he was going to get his team into the league. They are Clan Wolf in Exile. I am not sure what their faction will be in NBT. They could play Wolf or Merc or maybe even IS. You might want to check with them.

The MWO torso will be a smaller target and work better in this game. I think they nailed the look. I understand where you guys are coming from with the flatter head area but that is a matter of taste.

Technically they just need to let you do co-op in the Academy.

I like the PGI-look of the Nova Cat better than the tabletop version.
Why? As a clan design the bulky look just does not fit well.

The proportions are more balanced on Matt´s work, which gives it the sleeker, more elegant look of clantech, opposed to bulky IS designs (e.g. the Roughneck, a great looking workhorse).

I WANT MORE OFTEN SEE WIP RENDER MECHS! =)

Not even a fan of the Nova Cat, but it looks great and not having to wait for release to see how the Mechs differ from their preorder artwork would be even more great!

What map? If there was a new map coming anytime soon they would have.

Come on, give us a still of the imminent new map that Russ is going to talk about. I want you to prove my cynicism is misplaced for once.


Bud they are adding a dock to river city and extending the water out 2 meters. This per PGI logic constitutes a new map. Also caustic valley will get 3 new vents complete with sparkling smoke, the bog will get another tree, and alpine peaks will get a new mountain in the corner with hidden walls and a radio beacon on top. Yeessssssss 4 new maps! Sign me up for those mechpacks!

Yeah, since then probably had to use different crystals to get the extended range, or "heavier" damage.

Do you think he will talk about a new map. One would be nice, even a plain lunar map with a bunch of craters.
