Hey all just seen Mech Warrior Online has been announced, a F2P/ micropay game.

Looks quite good and about time we had another Mech game!

Anyone else interested?

I've gone ahead and registered my name. I'm hopeful that it'll turn out to be a well-made game.

I registered a name as well. Just hoping the specs of the game aren't soo far out that my computer can't play it. I know I'm not gonna be able to play it in full HD, but hopefully I'll be able to play it at all. Miss the old Multiplayer BattleTech online and that seems to be what they are going for but with better video game mechanics, gameplay, and graphics Cool

K, I'm still playing MWO and the game does feel like a good mix of BattleTech and MechWarrior. My only gripes have been the MC real money store is rather expensive on items. Seeing as 1 good mech can run around 40$ real money. You still can play without spending a dime and still make decent mechs that will hold there own. But it does require a major play grind to build up enough in game c-bills to buy mechs and equipment. And some equipment is given for skill game experience points as well (GXP). Only recently within the last couple patches has making a game unit been added. Though there are drawbacks as making private matches for practice requires one having payed premium time. So that could get a bit pricey. But I still like the game enough to have created Cloud's Mercs unit on the game. Even borrowing a Flight Stick and will be aquiring another headset. I'll have to see what game speech options are around though I know MWO does alow VOIP as well. But dealing with that as I come to it. With the rebirth so MMO's on all gaming platforms, it could funnel more traffic to GGC as well. Would love to see Gaming Group Forums again and maybe even revive a [CM] Forum section. Every thing right now is in a work in progress stage and trail basis to see how this all goes down. Need to know how to set things up like I had in the CM days of old. Like Group Chat areas, website, forums , etc. And still not sure how much time or money I can invest. But I am willing to see if I can't give Cloud's Merc another shot in the Mecha Universe Smile Hope to see others join me

Well dropped the flight stick as just couldn't give me the precise control and aim as I've been doing with keyboard and mouse. Still have to look into another good head set mic that is reasonably priced. I have 2 folks that seem willing to join Cloud's Mercs one of which is a former member. As for premium time its about 15$ for a month's time. So about normal sub fees on average payed MMO's. So still doable. And they look to possibly expanding into taking planets and/or territories of the Inner Sphere. The have most of the IS mechs and are now slowly bringing in Clan Mechs as well. Even some lost mechs have shown up. My main mech is an old Star League mech the Caphract Smile Even added another play map recently. So the game is coming along nicely. I'm just not a rich man, so have to work harder for the better toys is all Smile Still worth looking into , even if for just playing a few battles off and on Smile
