So the Clan Invasion of the Inner Sphere proper was delayed for a month?  :P 

(It started in March in canon.)

No.  The dates are exactly the same.  Keep in mind that the MWO announcements are from an in-character perspective, with all the communication lag and uncertainty that entails.

EDIT: Added quote for clarity.

Gotta get back into practice with my Centurion and Catapult if I want any chance against whatever is causing all that ruckus ohgod.

Wheeee clans.  Too late for me, though.  I've given up on MWO.  Two patches ago they changed something that halved virtually everyone's framerates (judging by the majority of gripes from their Patch Feedback section).  Personally, I went from ~24 to ~12.  There's dramatic latency between where the client thinks I am pointing and where my screen is showing me I'm pointing, and I have to be very slow when lining up shots, otherwise a quick twitch to readjust causes a massive overshoot.  In the age of ERPPC/ERLL/Gauss alphastrikeocalypse, this means I'm half dead by the time I've landed my first successful shot, and I average about 75 damage per round.  It's just not fun to play this way.

I still have 60 invested in this game... and I'm still waiting for it to get better.
I really should have went through with getting that refund instead of being convinced by a friendly support/dev mail not to.

Don't get me wrong, the game is fun when it's playing at decent speeds.  It's just... it's not.  They've got $15 of mine because I wanted more mechbays, and I believe that was a well-spent $15.  I'm gonna check back when they release new patches in hopes they've managed to solve their atrocious framerates.  They said some CryEngine improvements are due in May, hopefully they'll have cleaned up their render pipeline.

10 to 12 FPS here. Back then, I COULD play at 15 to 20 (20 to 30 on Alpine or Tourmaline), but now I can't even get a consistent 250+ score (on decent matches, I could get 400 and a crapload of savior bonuses and component crits, on peak performance, 750). The only way I can get some sort of slight FPS boon is to switch between my native laptop display and my old LCD monitor.

Now I can only get a 115 damage average in my Cats, my MSL Centurion is worthless and I would have to wait for missile state rewind for it to work...

... right now, I'm only making dough from an idiotically rigged Raven 2X (it has an LL and an ER PPC, goes at 95 KPH).

[wine]Practice, sniping, staying at second line, a crappy 205 standard, almost maxed out ferro armor, endo, and flagrant abuse of ER PPCs at a kilometer and as a "get off the hill" message.[/wine]

Sad enough on Alpine assault, my entire team died and I basically was able to not get shot by their snipers in that crap 2X (their ERLLs and Gauss shots didn't pop me at a kilometer). Their fast movers did not find me at all (I was trying to wind down the clock, see what happens if the time goes to zero, but they decided to cap the base with a minute left on the clock).

EDIT: I got sick of the Raven, so I sold my 2X. Just have to fundgrind for a Centurion-D (so I can bloody Elite that and Master my A and AL, and nab the 300XL so I can use it for a Jenner or a Trebuchet). Having to win 30 times unperked is not fun.

Awww, thank you.  I try. 

I enjoy laughing at the plebes on the MWO forums who complain about getting 60 fps.

Today, they said they're nailing down most of the plaguing HUD issues with a patch today, and they figured out what happened. (Technical wall of text ahoy.)

According to what Paul says about the May update, there should be a tweak to LB-10X (cone of fire tightened), damage increase to Machine Guns (well, to .08), BAP nullifying one ECM, dedicated ECM hardpoint, and missile tweaking (higher velocity, and damage).

Well, I don't know what to say on the latter.

Well, with my new Catapult C1, I say "woot".

 
Wow, I was trying to look up  some user.cfg fixes when I stumbled upon this thread. It's good to know HLP is still around a kicking.

Do want that Battlemaster.  The Thunderbolt looks way too much like a Summoner for me to take it seriously, though.

TBH, I hate what they did with all the mechs. The Atlas is pretty much the only clearly recognizable one, and that's only because it's already very distinctive. I'm not sure if to hope that they implement a Daishi after the Clans arrive, or to hope they don't, because they'll ruin my favorite design. This "Thunder Bolt" (it's "Thunderbolt" everywhere else, BTW) is just a mislabeled Summoner and their Catapult took me a looong while to find similarities to the actual CAT. They might be pretty, but look nothing like they're supposed to.

Oh, BTW, I'm now playing MW1 and noticed that 3 of those 4 already appeared in the first MW game. :) And that's probably the one game where they're even less recognizable than in MWO... but that's probably due to the fact they consist of ~30 solid-colored polygons in there (2D graphics of them are accurate, BTW).

Are you kidding? The art style is most definitely the best thing about MWO. It looks immensely better than anything else Battletech.
