So to be honest I have not even tried the new matchmaker yet. Why? Because you done already messed up PGI! I know you guys love the Inner Sphere and some would say you possibly favor them. Why did you have to make the PTS IS vs IS? You are leaving out an entire FACTION of players who are clan loyalists. At the very least you could have removed Clan mech limitations from this PTS, or Ideally made it Clan vs IS so that everyone would have a chance to participate. Seriously man, just think about things before you do them. Don't alienate an entire faction of your player base. Hopefully i will find time to drop tonight at least once and see the new matchmaker in action and be able to leave you feedback later.

I think the faction is totally irelevant for this PTS, because the matchmaker logic and scenarios is what is implemented for testing.

They could have more people testing the PTS if they had included a clan faction is my point. Most clan loyalists are not going to take a few hours to build an IS drop deck they will use once or twice.

Dude, you realise, that the mechs on the PTS will be gone after the PTS is finished, do you? You're not testing with your actual account, but a mirrored one.

That has nothing to do with it at all. It actually sounds like you didn't even log into it. Did you?

If you did - You would see....
  • NO alignment or career, you have to chose it again.
  • You also have a bazillion cbills.
  • Basically unlimited MC.
  • You can by a mech to test the PTS.

The PTS values of IS vs IS had absolutely not affect on player numbers at all. I would suggest next time actually logging in before commenting on something.

Just copy-paste the damn builds from Grimmechs or DenAirwalkerr's list.

Yes I realize this, do you realize that is not the point? Like most Clan loyalists I don't keep a large selection of IS mechs. They could have covered all their bases by making it Clan vs IS, but they chose to make it IS vs IS and exclude an entire group of their playerbase who dont really run IS mechs.

I did log on, hence the post. It was IS vs IS and you had to choose between steiner and marik. Some people don't have all day to sit there and build mechs and skill them out just to test something. In fact by the time i did get 3 different IS drop decks bought, built, and skilled nobody was dropping at all. They should have made it Clan vs IS so everyone with drop decks ready to go could have gone in and scrapped and tested the server and all its new features. Be a little more inclusive and a little less exclusive.

You're missing the point... copy the build codes from GrimMechs and copy whatever skill trees from your Clan builds seem to be the most relevant.

This is really just unnecessary whinging TBH.

You can't allow for every single person under the sun for a PTS with a super limited playerbase and even less people logging in.

PGI made the right move just flat locking it down. You could always bring TRIAL mechs as well... It's a test afterall, not a stats competition.
