I'm just concerned that they attempt Tukayyid right off the bat.  Why not start with the earlier battles for the capitals?  Ohhhhhhhh... just checked Sarna.  The Battle of Tukayyid went from May 1 to 20.  They're trying to keep sync with the canon events.
srsly? i thought the buggers abandoned it a while ago?

Ho, ho, ho, to the bottle I go
to heal my heart and drown my woe!
Rain may fall and wind may blow,
and many miles be still to go,
but under a tall tree I will lie!

Nope. Every few weeks they "reset" the Community Warfare map to whatever the borders were at that point in time in the BT universe.

JESUS CHRIST, MAKE A SINGLE PLAYER BT GAME ALREADY no i'm not bitter or anything

There must be changes, miss to feel strong

Yes, they should take the bits of this game that work, so the models and general gameplay, and someone (not PGI) should make an SP campaign.  That would be awesome.

Whenever this thread pops up again, I look at some youtube videos of MWO and stare at the pretty graphics. But then the sadness sets in as I realize that there still is no single player mode, and it's still basically CounterStrike with Mechs :(
In the end I boot up my old Win98 machine and play some MW2 3DFX.

But I would pay serious $$$ for a modern Mechwarrior game with a proper single player campaign.

Well, I finally got the C-Bills to purchase a Nova Prime.

This might be the most hilarious 'Mech I've ever seen.  :lol:

EDIT: well, Tukayyid is off to a fail start. Apparently the servers are overflowing with IS'ers and there's a severe shortage of Clanners to oppose them.

Anyone still getting actively playing this?  I haven't played since the Project Phoenix package(2013?) came out but if the state of the game is in good shape I might spool it up and get some reps in.  Would the mechs in my stable from that time still be competitive?

On the (rather rare) occasion I play, my Thunderbolts, Jagermechs, Centurions, and Spiders all do pretty well. I think the game is alright, but I only play a few games at a time, and I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to the BT universe.
The difference between genius and insanity is measured only by success.

The game itself is doing just fine, I'd say. And yes, the old 'Mechs are still competitive.

I'm on every now and again, more often now that I've found a group to play with. If you see a "SolDarkHunter" out there, say hello.

(Also kind of excited for the near-future what with the Marauder and Warhammer coming out soonish... my inner Macross fan is geeking out over that.)

Ever since I got my new tower, I've been doing a lot better and still playing once a week.

Just got into Pilot Skill Tier 3, and there's supposed to be a new major patch starting this week. Warhammer's coming out...

Here's my SHD-2K "Wood Hawk" which works wonders for me. On any good match, it scores hat trick kills and 550 damage on average (I've had a couple instances where it was in the 700/800 range).

New map, Whammy, balance changes and more destructable terrain with new game modes promised in the future... this is either a good time to be excited or afraid or some combination.

Also <3 Marauders.

I've recently gotten into the MWO scene. Its pretty good. I do regret the lack of a MW2,3,or variants of 4 esque campaign.

Is there any semblance of a "all the dudes from hardlight" faction still kicking around? I have some friends I play with but we usually only get 3 guys on at a time.

A lack of promises was never this game's failing point.

Yeah, this is as good time as any to call PGI dirty liars. :) They always promised an awful lot of things and didn't really deliver on most. I wouldn't even care if they promised a singleplayer mode at that point. If they made and released such a mode, well, I suppose I could touch this thing again.

We used to.  I left it because none of the HLP guys who weren't already in another unit were ever on.

Also the new map is a hilarious clusterf**k of epic proportions.  With no significant terrain landmarks and huge sightlines, everything will inevitably devolve into a mess of 2-3 sub-battles, and ER weapons are overpowered.  Really overpowered.

One day we'll get a good 'Mech game.

Today is not that day.  MWO really just reminds me that proper BattleTech games really need to be single player or some kind of turn based.  Between pop-tarts in MW4, legging in MW2 and MW3, and MWO's pitiful attempts at balance there hasn't been a great actually multiplayer combat 'Mech game since the Pods back in the late 90s/early 00s.

I've gotten on a bit more lately, usually in my dakka-hawk. If you see "Suralin", that's me.
