Greetings MechWarriors!

As some of you may know, upon purchasing the new Community Edition MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Pre-Order, you get access to an exclusive Discord Server where "Ask-Me-Anything" (AMA) sessions will be schedules with the developers working on MW5!



The very first AMA has been scheduled for next week, on Wednesday January 16th!
There will be 2 sessions for the different time-zones that day:
First one @ 10AM PST // 6PM UTC
Second one @ 6PM PST // 2AM UTC

These AMA's will be conducted with Russ Bullock and Alex Garden on our exclusive MW5:M Discord!

How it will work (On the Discord server):
Russ and Alex will be responding to questions asked in order inside the #ask-me-anything-session text channel while also being connected to the AMA Sessions Voice Channel on the Discord server.

To attend and listen, you will be able to join the AMA Sessions Voice Channel as well (however automatically muted), while having access to type in the #ask-me-anything-session text channel to talk directly to them.
If questions are picking up too quickly, the text channel will be set to slow-mode and the valid questions will be pinned and pending in the text channel for Russ and Alex to go through while continuing to answer uninterrupted.

To be fair, my questions have been responded to by multiple PGI employees including Tina and Russ via the the MW5 Discord.

Refreshing.

Is there a url link (or other link) that will be given out to join "Discord"? Will you post it here or send out emails to those that have the MW5:M pre-order? Is there an invite of some kind that will happen?

In other words, for those of us who haven't used Discord, what do we do? lol...

Thanks ;-)

Once you have made an account on the MW5 site and made a preorder, there will be a profile page where you can collect the gift codes for MWO as they are released. On that same page, you can get a one-time-use Discord invite link.

If you click the link, you will be sent to a page where one of two things will happen:
1. If you already have Discord installed on your PC, it will launch the application and immediately connect you to the group.
2. If you don't have Discord installed, you'll be given an install link.

Something I'm really curious about, what level of VR support will MW5M have? For that matter, support for HOTUS? Throttle, joystick, and peddles? Or even twin joysticks? Would be the perfect game for all that.

because it's generally a massive salt mine that never does anything productive? has been that way almost since MWO was in closed Beta.

least with the Discord, we can be sure we're talking to them in real time and be a lot more likely to get answers.

Yea good question that and true.

Can someone ask please if MW% wil be playable offline. iam not on steam and i do not really want to be forced if i want MW5. So its interesting for me when i do buy MW5, and i know it will be delievered over steam, can i play it offline?
Why they dont use like Harebrained schemes with BT Gog com too as second option? Vea i know that with that mod thingy. But gog also has Gog connect tto connect gog games withs team as example, so it should be no problem

Well, the mechcon demo stations had HOTAS setups. You can clearly see that Russ is using a T16000M here:

So I heard a rumor that it will be available on GOG at a later date so I can't confirm, but yes. The Devs have said before that MW5: Mercs will be fully playable offline.

I just want to know one thing from Uncle Russ:

Will there be rearview cameras in mech cockpits in MW5:M ? I wish MWO had the option for me to see what the hell is behind me. Please let this feature make it into MW5.

Thanks

(Cannot make the pre-order and thus the AMA because I am a broke peasant)
