Hello there!

I'm just wondering, with the small patches we're getting...

Would you be aware if there is any Reward Program in the pipeline that'll be announced next month ?
Or that's a dead deal?

Thank you in advance for your answer!

Ooh, hitbox update makes MAD-4A worth another look. Its hardpoints are actually pretty ok and were held back just by the abysmal hitboxes.

Why are you not nerfing the LRM's. I still see posts complaining about them in the General Discussion forum. Please nerf until the posts stop.

I don't mute anyone, even the people who "trigger" me, yes too old, but mods would censor other words [what a world we live in, or have created ([Redacted])]. It is better this way, plugging your ears and ignoring what is unpleasant makes you weak. Yes, I realize that "free speech" is an American (US) thing that is quickly being eroded (in the US).

This patch notes yells "EPIC FAIL". Truly. Why don't you guys work on getting the game optimized again.

I mute people who are whinning enough to drown out effective comms. I don't mind a bit of salt, I certainly sprinkle some on ocassion, but hanging around dead and whinging is just annoying.

To each their own, but in Quick play, there are rarely "effective coms", it is mob rule, just hope everyone responds to and follows the loudest voice and that the loudest voice is the right one. I play almost exclusively Quick Play, hence the very slow climb in ELO and approximately 50% win rate.

I have not spent much on this game recently, because I am not able to, but I would support it more if I could. The only way that they could "optimize" this game more, is to remake it in Unreal 4. Yes, Cry Engine is bad, yes my PC, far exceeds the recommended specs, but the game slows down at certain points (mainly lighting changes like day / night transition), which is a flaw in Cry Engine, but the game is more than "playable" for me. And yes, I am old enough that I remember when having a steady 60 FPS frame rate was unimaginable.

Ill tell ya this ED. If this game was moved to the Unreal Engine while they were making Mw5 for the Epic Fail Store, Sure. That engine would be something we be better off having over Cry Engine any day. I can play any other game at MAX settings. Same with MWO before all the adding of mechpacks which was a bad idea on PGI's end and they knew it too.

More stuff that was added caused headaches on the game's engine and thus we get ppl leaving for various reasons. One of them was lack of Optimizations. Ive seen posts on forums from awhile back stating that people left because of that. Having better FPS means less stress. Lets not forget the crashes that have been plaguing the game.

Leaderboard Grinder 2.0: the EPIC adventure that goes all the way to level21 Merc...

thanks for trying PGI we are trying to appreciate your hotfix patch but seriously just farm bitcoin on our GPUs whilst we wait 45mins for a 20min game, call it the new subscriber edition MWO and include the NASCAR quickplay maps in invasion to keep things from going stale.

As bad as they have screwed up over the last couple of years, the less they touch the game, the better.

We all agree that Unreal 4 is superior to Cry Engine, that is probably the only thing that the majority of the people on this forum would agree on. But any "fixes" are better than none.

Why not fix the bug for the Server selection?! That bothers me the most.
