They could dust off the 'career' Powerpoints they showed us when they were selling Community Warfare to MWO founders.

I think the big question someone should slip in is this: Can you leave the ship...on foot (in a port obviously, I don't expect to do a mission on foot)

I'm in Europe, written english is easier than spoken english.
Please switch to a forum instead of these AMAs.

Someone on Reddit/Outreach will usually type out the key points.

I agree with you ... I'd rather just read than sit through 60 minutes of waffle.

So, AMA has already descended into "We will only answer (i.e. already prepared a statement) about the things we choose to." mode. We have decided what is best and good luck, we may have covered something you want, but tough, otherwise.

Already off on the usual PGI line of none interaction with the intended customer base :P

Never seen that happen before!

I'm pretty sure they already answered this and said "no". You can walk around the ship, but that's about it. There's limited, if any interaction with the other people aboard ship, and you can't hire and fire anyone other than mechwarriors. You can apply HBS Battletech styles of upgrades to the overall ship, but you can't fire the bum down in the MechBay who keeps cross-threading your Autocannon onto the 'mech arm, or cross-wiring your lasers, and replace him with a competent tech.

That sucks. I do remember a scene where the player (and it appeared to be another pilot/player) leave the ship into a port that had what looked like a bar right there. With all these MW1 (1989) influences, I had hoped...
that in addition to this...

Do you have the old ones? I tried sitting through the AMAs...but the commercials on Sean's stream are terrible and nothing is worse than (Question) "Uh...uh..this info...uh..that info...uh...(commercial)....uh...some other info (except by this point I've completely forgotten the question or if I did remember, did this really have anything to do with what was asked?)...uh..."

I don't, sorry.

After observing PGI's stock-in-trade of consistently promising the world to drive up pre-sales, then delivering the bare minimum - late, after misleading customers about the state of development - I now put very little stock in any commitments they're making for MW5.

I'm still interested enough to look/listen to the various town halls, tweets and AMAs. But I no longer bother bookmarking them like I once did.

I would like to see enemy strong defense point, mechs under your command, earn enemy mechs you destroy during the mission and get new weapons like: IS assault laser, X pulse lasers, Thunder bolt missile, link high capacitor clan PPC and heavy version of clan gauss riffle.

You should get 10k cbills every time the 2 min Solaris counter hits 0 without you getting a match.

Build the core game, then look into additional DLC. Core game is missions. If you want to explore a world, play Mass Effect or Kingdom Come.

Considering some of the inane questions that the community comes up with, no wonder.

While you may have a point, PGI should stop calling it "Ask Me Anything" if they don't want or care to actually answer valid questions about MW5.
