40 Active Mechbays? Upkeep costs on those are going to be expensive. Also, how can a Leopard store and maintain that many battle ready mechs when an Overlord Dropship can only carry 36? Lol. Still, now we can have 3x Assault Lances + 1 Light Lance and 1 Medium Lance for rounding out our Drop tonnage. Gonna cost close to 1.5 million C-Bills per Quarter, unless those 8 subsidized Mechbays are cheap as hell.

The implication in the blog seems to be that the first four mechbays are the ones from your own Leopard, while the remaining 36 are leased from what I assume would be other dropships.

Try something new with the added first-person, conventional shooter controls-style mode for gamepad, keyboard and mouse

Thank you. I was reluctant to buy MW5 because of the feedback about bad AI ruining the experience. Now I am seriously considering it. It is so rare for game developers to actually improve the AI post-launch. You've earned my respect and my money.

Exactly my thought - you rent space on other ships!

Also i read that a Leopard has room to store more Mechs if you take the risk this storage room is not a Mechbay and oh boy, these Merc Units seem not to adhere to worker safety protocols... Posted Image

I would play Mech 5 but it won't recognize my joystick v.v . And I'm not buying a new joystick for 1 game.

you can probibly get it to work, but you got to edit a config file. see my joystick thread to see if anyone made a profile for your model. the joystick support is really underdeveloped.

when they teased the union in the promo, i didnt think it would get relegated as background scenery.
