Always happy to see new maps introduced, I mean new and not just remakes but these take way too long for you to make, I would like to get new maps way way more often.

Bolt-on system, glad to hear about that, altho kinda shame that our decorations can get destroyed, I want those spikes tho, tons of spikes.

Melee, eh I don't expect to see it ever here in MWO, but I want it, I want it very much, don't you devs just ignore it because it is more comfortable to do so, I'd love to smack some fools in my big mech with some big hatchet/club, fist, pickable tree or whatever.

Quite disappointed with lack of Faction Play related info, we had this FP oriented roundtable while ago and now we hear about Solaris, personally I don't care about Solaris but I am kinda annoyed that you guys want to introduce it while Faction Play is still bland, flavourless and meh really, I heard something about faction specyfic mechs during this "Production update with Russ Bullock" few days ago hoping it will be exactly that, that we will see some mechs available only to players from specific factions, that would add a little bit of flavour to some factions at least, but that was not it.
You could always put a number of those faction only mechs in your loot boxes, make them rare and call them salvaged I guess, so that people not only from faction X could get their hands on them at some point and use them in FP, could always make boxes tradable maybe(just an idea, I'm sure there will be ppl quite against completely locking some mech x to faction x etc.).

I would just like factions to be a bit different, differences between clans, differences between houses, there was something said about this during that faction play related roundtable we had a while ago, smth about faction specific skills or traits? I would like to hear more about plans for FP and I would like to see some good updates and changes for it before Solaris.
Anyway, I'm House Kurita loyalist and I completely don't care for my faction, nothing in MWO makes me care about my faction, It doesn't matter to me if my faction is losing or winning, there are no real (grand?) consequences.

Lack of mech IK Posted Image eh what a pity, I like to take pretty screenshots while playing MWO, getting a nice shot would be easier with this thing in game.

First person walkable mech hangar, it is a cool thing sure, if there will be free camera mode I could take some screenshots of my own mechs but honestly it is a waste ot time, plz make more new maps and make them faster instead of that, because maps may keep me interested and playing and free roam hangar won't..

New loot boxes, I wonder what will happen with all those boxes I have now, guess they will be turned into new ones? current content of my boxes will be changed too I assume? keys I have now I guess will turn into MC since keys won't be needed anymore.

Bolt-on Geo: Can I have the fins that make the Zeus X?

http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Zeus_X


8v8 vs 12v12 - with our current Match Maker 8v8 will probably be better than 12v12, But with a Match Maker that takes into account my individual skill with specific weight class / chassis / variant / weapons systems, make 12v12 better than 8v8.

New Maps - Hell ya! Couldn't come soon enough. While we are at it, can we remove Map Voting? Maps are content, and with certain maps never being picked, I now have less content to play with.

If they throw one in with missile hard points than I'm all for a vulcan. Rather have an MRM than just a bunch of lasers and ballistics.


Vulcan can be the IS machinegun monster, too. It's a nifty looking thing, that's for sure.

More maps, great, but after that long time not so great anymore,
but understandable, maps costs money (for pgi a maps costs insane 250.000$) and brings no money,
means we only get maps if the uprise gets too big and the sales go stagnant.

No ik, costs money, costs money for bigger servers but brings no money, not enough uprise.

In the end i would be glad if they would be able to bring at least a single patch without the need of a hotpatch ...
... lowered expectations for a minimal aviable product.


MWO has some unique selling points:
- Only game that needs a hotpatch for every patch
- Get worse graphics and effects over time but also reducing fps by doing that.

as cool as it would be, we probably won't see anything like this since it would be a pretty significant alteration to its geometry.

I like how it looks.

That's BASICALLY the main reason why i like certain mechs more than others.

Looking forward to Solaris and bolt-ons.

Not to keen on the 8v8 quickplay.

When are we going to see airstrikes being nerfed? It's gotten bad to the point that it's become a meta to run these things. Has this not been noticed at all or what? The damn things take 15% of your health in one go and that's even with only 1 strike.

that's because you're being nailed by someone who spent points to buff it. also, there's an easy way to avoid that damage. it's called moving.

Like they can't be used to hit targets around structure (or in a long path beyond it). You can't literally dodge all airstrikes. Not to mention if you're sitting in a slow moving heavy or assault. I have no problems getting hit by them. They never were an issue in the past. Fact is that they are a lot more powerful now. Cooldown is super short (even with global cooldown) and you can pack 4 of the things. Ever run into a full group that used those? Ever ran into a competitive team that all had airstrikes and artillery? They can wipe half a team with those and batter the other half if they had a bit of luck. They take around 15% health on some mechs. They core out your back (and could kill you that way. Being in the center of a strike on a medium made me lose a complete sidetorso once even though I was still fresh. They're ridiculous.
Your 'moving' solution isn't valiable. Want to know how you don't take damage from enemy fire ever? Just keep moving too, or sit behind cover. Knowing that, you still get shot and killed often. Now what?

strikes are probably the single most powerful thing you can get for the point investment. given that coolshots were nerfed a while back for being similarly powerful (at least in the developers' eyes), i see absolutely no way that strikes won't be as well.

hopefully y'all can still remember how to shoot.

No free-for-all? That's what made Solaris the brutal slugfest that it was!

And for God's sake, you can't have Solaris without George Ledeoux as Duncan Fisher!


Aaaaaagreed!

Give us at least 12 player free for all. MASS CHAOS!

I might make a "Do You have a Bolt-On Suggestion?" Thread. It might be too early, but hey I love the vanity aspect of customizing mechs more than I like fighting in battle.

For the people who want the Vulcan, from Sarna "The Vulcan was designed as an anti-infantry 'Mech in the closing years of the Amaris Civil War. ", but of course people will want it buffed to rediculous levels like other "anti-infantry" Mechs in MWO so the game will become even more like Call of Duty. To be fair though, the Clans have the new Mist Lynx variant that turned arguably the worst light Mech in the game into an OP MG boat, so why not give the IS one too?
