Can PGI put in a match making option where technology is PRE Helm core? would really bring a breath of fresh air to this game. no clan tech. no DHS. no XLs. no UAC. no streaks. no pulse. no gauss. no lbx. (maybe lbx) but keep newer "low tech" like MRMS

era only mechs and their varients of that earlier era being allowed as well.
people are tired of the clan/high tech dps vomit everywhere

I believe MechWarrior 5 is the product for you.

sure, a single player/co-op sandbox merc style mech game is highly anticipated. im talking about mwo. a game that many people have dropped hundreds of dollars for content that "no longer applies" to the games meta just sitting being useless. countless mech varients and entire chassis as well as weapons and componants being worthless as far as competitive gameplay goes.

just feel a many older players of the game mught return with a "Low Tech" launch option to enjoy more than just a handful of mechs with all the same meta loadouts

Events with this type of change would be fun but they're in "maintenance mode", so no new updated. They haven't said if they will ever update again.

Private lobby has a stock mech option, limit your variants based on tech year but otherwise it's very unlikely you'll get that for public queue at this stage of the game's life.

I always thought opt in events like this would be fun. Maybe just run it on the PTS, though with the save/load loadout it shouldn't be that big of a deal for people to change builds on the regular server. But not just this suggestion, I always wanted to have events that were "a day without" or "a week without" (insert something here). So a day without assaults, a day without lights, a day without lock on weapons, a day without lasers, etc, etc. Just see what the game would be like without various things.

I play "old underdogs mech" regulary... it's refreshing and not THAT bad (medium bracket wise)
But an event like the ones proposed in this topic would be great.

MWO is in 'maintenance mode', aka game hospice.

While it would be really cool to see a game where you could play in different tech eras, MWO will never be that game.
