So regarding modes, are they just going to be changed or will there be new modes besides the current/ revamped modes in rotation?

Thank you for posting this.

That said, please new maps!

New maps would breath new life into this game!

thats a lot of promises. hope you can make good. now if i could buy a mw5 dlc or a new mech pack that would be great.

wrt solaris, can we get a 4v4 mode and a simple match makers for it and 2v2? 4v4 could replace fp scouting.

Please PLEASE get rid of the idea of laser color customization. Laser sound customization could be cool maybe, but changing the colors is a horrible idea, since laser colors serve as an instant account for threat level and damage received.

because the change of daytime when it happens during a match causes a huge lag spike that is super annoying.


On low spec PCs or? I don't remember experiencing this...

No changes to Artillery/Air Strikes?

I always thought the "fire and forget" nature with instant pinpoint precision was off balanced, either it should be some kind of laser pointer you have to hold for a short time or a beacon that you shoot and has flight time.

Re: Loot Bags - Can we get an "Open All Bags" button? Opening one at a time can take forever.

Bugs - did I miss "investigate and fix heat bug"?

im ok with different colors for micros, standards, heavies, ers and pulse. no two different lasers should look the same. but for letting players paint their lasers different colors, no.

After a year or more of no real content this is really disapointing.

quarter 1 should be hot fix
quarter 2 needs to be done in a month
quarter 3 and 4 really need to be combined and release at the end of q2 as a massive patch initiative to bring back old players and bring in new players.

Add some twitch item drops integration by then and pay a few big name streamers to check out the game with new changes and all that and you can then have the rest of the year to dissapoint us.

q3 needs to be new maps, mechs, and modes

q4 official mod support and community content initiative to at least start letting the community take charge to fill in the lack of developement.

Grrrrrr......

All-in-all it looks achievable. I just hope you all stick to it and drop the ball again.

Wondering why I don't see any mention of removing insta-death from the IS-XL and there's no mention of revisting the MM. The MM was due for a revisit back in October, could you add this to the roadmap. Also, also, could we use a full week for sample data rather than a 24hr snapshot this time.

Edit: Might also be worth adding a 2nd, 3rd, 4th pass for quirks as well. Weapons are getting 4 passes because you know it won't be perfect first time, you're not going to get quirks right 1st time either so don't chance it.

We do have MatchMaker improvements down for Q4. If we determine we can do anything before then, we will move it up.

Why?

And will classic TT be back soon? I see many classic in rotation but no classic TT. :-(

I will add Classic Terra Therma to the list a bit later tonight.

I get the distinct impression you're overestimating the resources PGI has available, and/or underestimating the amount of work involved... Not that I have ANY frame of reference to make more accurate estimates, but I figure Daeron probably does...

I wish Long Tom and Arrow IV were playable equipment, rather than consumable off-map assets. You should be able to shoot down aircraft and dropships before they can attack, and TAG lasers were supposed to be for guided artillery munitions, not for LRMs...

As I expected. Cosmetic changes only. The developers do not intend to get deeply into the game engine. For me, MWO is primarily a 'Mech simulator, and therefore I would like the simulation component in the game to become more significant. But alas, it looks like it won't. I am saddened.

This would be client side only, so you would not see anyone else's color choices. and they would not see yours.

The community has not expressed this to be a concern. It can be added if enough people request it.

I like the button idea, and someone else brought up the heat bug. I will add it to the list.

I really enjoy faction play, but get far to bored sitting in que, can we please be allowed to at least get to the store and mechlab while waiting in que? I can kill a lot of time exploring new builds and mechs while waiting.

In summary, in 6 months there might be a new map, and in 9 months there might be some hardpoints changed to make.a.couple of new variants.

Well I'm excited!

There are little things in the interface that need to be fixed.

The Mech Store:
Sort mechs by IS or Clan
Very confusing for people who don't know which mech is which.

Tonnage displayed in too small a font.
When trying to get a mech to fit in your drop deck, you want the tonnage displayed in a bigger font.
Also want to sort mechs by tonnage in ascending or descending order.

Be able to display mechs loadout when its in your drop deck.
Currently you have to remove it from your drop deck just to see what the loadout is.

If you guys can pull something to close to this off, I see good things coming.

I only met Daeron for a few minutes in Vancouver, but my perception was that he was a genuine good-hearted guy. If anyone can make this happen its him!

Очень много вероятностей, нужна конкретика. Мы готовы играть, мы готовы платить, мы готовы поддерживать проект, но готовы ли поддерживать нас (игроков)???
