You know...

I thought the license for Mechwarrior was up next year... and i really don't see how they could get Microsoft to extend the license with the player numbers and in light of Catalyst Labs success with Kickstarter...

So does this mean PG going Epic Exclusive and the FAQ stating that they only maybe go to another plattform... does this mean this is PG cashing out on Mechwarrior?

Even with all the Refunds... the money Epic gave them for the exclusive is probably more than enough if they have no interest in reobtaining the license from Microsoft.

I was sad that i missed the pre-order time window, my plan was then to buy 2 copies on steam at relase and play with my little brother who has a lot of fun with my copy of the turn based battletech game by hs.
Guess i will buy the heavy metal dlc too on steam when it arrives, and boy some miniatures off ebay.
The closest i can get, sadly.

One quick question, how do I go about getting a refund? The MW5 FAQ was unclear.

How does the refund thing work?

I’ll be having to use it for the first time.
Do you write an email at the mw5 support address? Which infos do they need?

The only thing they could possibly say in the AMA to prevent my refund is that pre-orders will still get a Steam key or stand-alone download in December. That's what we paid for, not an Epic key.

Amen

Well, more money for Flight Simulator I guess.... Posted Image
Bad choice, very bad choice ….
A year can be long, but I'll wait until will be available on Steam or stand alone store.

MW5 could have been good, but then you had to go and ruin it.

refund request underway.

Eüic games store is bad for the gamers.

To someone who has no idea about this 'Epic' thing can someone explain why this is such an unsurprisingly and predictably awful move....?

Serious question.
I payed in Euro, since i live in Germany. If the Dollar has more value now, does PGI have to pay me more for my refund or does it count as full refund if they repay me in Dollar only and i get less Euros than i payed?

I have not played MWO in forever.

I didn't even pre-order MW5, but no matter.

I think I deserve a refund anyways.
