Hey how about you link to that announcement...

FYI the oldest Mechwarrior Online announcement I can find is dated Nov 1, 2011
Reads like you gotta go take your rabid frothing at the mouth anger out on IGP, the original PUBLISHER...

INFINITE GAME PUBLISHING TO PUBLISH MECHWARRIOR® ONLINE™
- Piranha Games brings the long-awaited MechWarrior® as a Free-To-Play PC game -

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, October 31, 2011 -- Infinite Game Publishing Inc. (www.infinitegamepublishing.com) and Piranha Games Inc. (www.piranha-games.com) have announced MechWarrior® Online™ (www.mwomercs.com), the first officially licensed free-to-play title in the long-standing and award-winning MechWarrior® franchise. MechWarrior Online is set to launch in the second half of 2012 from newly formed digital publisher, Infinite Game Publishing.

Set in the year 3049 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of the most powerful war machine to ever walk the field of battle, the mighty BattleMech™. Command your Mech™ and customize it to suit your battlefield role; upgrade systems, replace weapons, and tweak armor with endless options.

MechWarrior Online lets players command at will: go head-to-head online alone or with friends in high-octane Conquest and VS modes. Band together and form your own Mercenary Corp, invite friends and battle other player-made Merc Corps for prestige and power. Pledge your allegiance to one of the five great houses and fight for control of precious Inner Sphere planets.

You will play a key role in a dynamic and ever-changing universe where player exploits impact the world around you and daily story updates and frequent content additions create epic changes to the Inner Sphere universe and its many inhabitants.

MechWarrior Online delivers a rich online experience, rewarding everything a player does with experience points, C-Bills, unlocks, and recognition. Upgrade skills and refine your role in gameplay using an all-new leveling system, and up-to-the minute detailed player statistics allow you to compare, track and share your progress with other players.

“We’re excited to lead the MechWarrior franchise online for fans of the series,” said Russ Bullock, co-founder of Piranha Games. “We’re proud to partner with Infinite Game Publishing, and are thankful for the fans of the MechWarrior series that have been so patient for the next MechWarrior game to arrive. Infinite Game is a partner who understands both the world of games publishing and the crucial technical needs of today’s AAA online gaming experiences. Together we are bringing fans epic next-generation Mech combat online in 2012.”

PS. Not to be confused with the earliest MechWarrior franchise announcement (its pre-design anything).
This original 2009 MW5 was to have a storyline that reads like a very bad 1970's "kung fu" movie.

Yes, always so much butt hurt about someone getting something that someone else can't.

Did anyone else get the MAD2 pre-order code? It says up to 5 days of owning a pack but its the seventh day now and i still don't see the code in my mw5 profile except for the mc and boost one. Not that im impatient because we have lots of time till we get that mech in the game just asking.

it will go live once the proper MAD2 pre-order page is up. So you'll want to look out for that.

Oh man, you did great work getting those sources. Respectful.
But as you can see, in my post I'm talking, focusing on literally, about some key in game mechanics so if you could remember in the earliest versions (builds) of the game... Oh wait!

You couldn't! Damn... Dude, just... pass it off. It's doesn't matter now. Enjoy the game.Posted Image
Peace!


Hey BARSLOB why you derail offtopic to passively attack like that buddy? Guess you've been away too long buddy so this is what you need to know.
1. I left in 2013 and got a new PC in 2014 and tried to try MWO again in dec 2015...
2. The excellent PGI support staff recovered my account in Jan 2016.
3. And when looking up the account creation date for Akillius, LastPass only shows it was 5 years ago but less then 6 years (LastPass doesn't do weeks or months, after first 52 weeks). But here's a screenshot for you anyways buddy just cause I'm like that.

Of course next time you wish to debate me on some subject... and are no longer capable of doing so without personal attacks and posting derailing off topic crap, maybe you should stop and think. Do you really want to go there buddy. Do ya?

PS. I don't follow topics here and I could care less but some friends mentioned your post here and thought you needed a little push before you go full troll and honestly we all want a good laugh so I'm following this one buddy.
Question is; are you going to take the bait............

I tried to preorder, but the page has an "additional information" security feature that bills a random "under $1 amount to the account. The issue is that the text doesn't get sent to me. It may get sent to my wife, but she's not a fan of me playing this game, so she doesn't pass this info along, so I am not able to finish the purchase.

Oh, well, I guess that the pre-order just wasn't meant to be. I was a bit on the fence anyway, so this just kind of cinched the decision. I had the ultimate pack ordered and it was just that "additional verification" holding it back. I guess that I can see why the company is a bit gun shy, but it does seem like a good way to lose sales. Isn't a credit and a pre-order already a good enough way to be able to verify the sale? It isn't like someone is walking away with an actual item...

Well, I had zero issues with the purchase, as well as those I regularly talk to. It's obvious your purchase did not go through. I'm sorry I can't provide more help.

Hey Tollas, has yer problem been solved? Else I'd advice to contact PGI customer support, since most people - myself included - got the code from the MW5-site already. Once you have redeemed the code on the MWO-site, just check the pre-order tab on your profilepage: the MAD2-pack you qualified for is shown there (just stating this since it took myself a little to realize, it is there and not under the redeem page).

Well I went to purchase my Mechwarrior 5 package. And it will not allow me to use my normal payment method of amazon pay. Even though I have used this method for all my purchases before. So I then try to just use my card. It tells me I have to verify my card to use it. But I don't do online banking or sms . So I call your payment services Xsolla. Seems I have to take a picture of my card and send it to them to prove it is my card (with all but last 4 and expiration date blanked out).

Security is nice and all. But when it inconveniences the customer it is no longer security it is a barrier. So instead of buying this. I will now wait till release to purchase. As such I will lose all the extras which would entice me to play more MWO till the beta starts.

Your setup has told me that you don't want my money. And from other posts I have seen I am not alone. So you just lost a sale. It might only be my sale. But I don't think I am alone on this.

Did preOrder it with PayPal without any Problem.

Reason i did the 50$ preOrder is there is no worth for me in the bigger offers.

PreOrdering is allways a sign of faith...i had the Budget this month, there was no better thing to do with it if you grant People the luxury to do things for their own joy, decided to buy it instead of wasting it on things that have no lasting effect like watching a meaningless movie or playing a meaningless other game, doing charity for warzones, etc.

BT/MW means something to me!

Only the future will show if it was the right decision but as a man i can shoulder the burden of taking risks as little as this one. Posted Image

No codes there yet, any idea how long it takes after purchase for the codes to appear?

Nvm, It just didnt highlight the text, the codes were there.

If successfully bought, it should be up soon as the purchase clears.
Note: I had to do this little lookup thing to find a temporary charge of X cents in order to prove it was my card. You probably have to do the same. That charge cancels once you enter the amount.

On the MW5 page:
"MWO Content
Redeem the code(s) provided below on the MechWarrior Online redeem page.
(Note: you will need to create a MechWarrior Online account if you do not already have one to utilize this content.)

If I were you, I'd start at the Privateer tier. Then work your way up.
