Due to the craziness of last week I straight forgot to post this, so here it is, ask your questions!

Does shooting the pylon in the enemy base (or your own base) have any effect on how long it takes to capture the base?

Thanks

This is based on a conversation I started in the clans section, that unexpectedly (at least to me) turned into a mini-flame war. Would there be any plans to limit the number of people who can claim bloodnames to 25? for example there are currently 218 prydes. It just seems to me that from an RP and lore standpoint it would make sense to try and limit the number of people with bloodnames.

Crazy week indeed! But, none the less very welcome by the community so thank you again for your hard work and dedication to this project.



Question; Is there a new game mode currently in the workshop? If so, could you elaborate what this game mode might entail?

Do the devs have the coconut monkey in their cockpit or fuzzy dice?

How are you going to handle planetary warfare? Is it possible to have different zones for conquest lets say deserts, swamlands, citys, artic regions? or he who controls the planet will only have 1 field to worry about? and will it be open for attacks at all times or during set times?

My question, Garth, is as follows;

Do you prefer to have mashed potato with cream and a touch of mint OR with roasted garlic with a hint of mustard powder?

I too want too want to know the answer to this question.

Also when community warfare comes around, will PGI have it's own corp that we can fight? If so, what mech would you pilot?

Any chance to have dropships matched by weight rather than numbers and class? or set drop weight limits(lets say all mediums?)?

Has there been any thought to the implementation of "Drop Fees" (Fees to bring a certain weights of a lance to the battlefield)? Or do you feel that the higher repair bills for assault mechs already curb the formation of Assault lances?

Will it eventually be possible for a group to split repair/rearm costs evenly between the group, and/or c-bill rewards, for that matter?

How many mech bays are we allowed to own now. Last I saw from a dev was a ideal 16 bays. However before the last wipe I was at 20 bays. Can I/we please get an answer on this?

In the feedback forum you mentioned heat was under investigation. Can you give us any idea what ideas are being spitballed? When can we expect paint schemes/ fuzzy dice/ etc?

How many Inner Sphere BattleMechs are planned to be released before Clans are introduced? Will each weight class have the same number of BattleMechs?

Will you implement something in the near future which allows you to reconnect into a running match? Sometimes really annoying to have a crash or something else happening and your squad might lose because of that ;(
