I like how, despite being lifeless, there are a multitude of pine forests in the region. :p

Not being from the South, I wouldn't expect you to understand how hard it is to actually kill a pine tree... ;)
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

Oh, there's plenty of pine up here, too. But, I'll take your word for it. ;)

Those southern white pine are essentially indestructible with environmental effects. Seriously.

If you bought Founders, you're in. o7 and see you on the battlefield and all those ironic EVE phrases, unironically.

SO i'm at work,  can't really see game sites (thank god HLP isn't blocked) but i still get the odd "Play MW:O for free" ad at random.

Sooooooooo, tell me the details, it's an FPS right? Free? In a Tribes Ascend flavour?

EDIT- Wikipedia'd it thanks :)

Quote from: Wikipedia
In the mid-26th century, the Terran Hegemony, under the leadership of Ian Cameron, became the nucleus for the star-spanning government known as the Star League.

So Ian Cameron gets frozen now and somehow creates the Star League :/

Errr, no, Dekker.  It's complicated, but the short version is the Star League is dead and there are five Successor States fighting over who gets to create the next Star League, the most common form of land combat vehicle is the BattleMech, and its a seller's market for mercenary services in the 31st Century.  In MWO you just happen to be a mercenary BattleMech pilot who gets paid cold, hard C-bills to kill other mercenary BattleMech pilots.

17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Truuuust, I've read the history now. I was just surprised to see old cameron mentioned.

Back to the question, is free can play now?

 
Not yet.  It's still closed beta, though anyone who buys a pre-order package now gains automatic access to the beta.  I think that the aim is for the full release before the end of the year.

I believe it will be free to play like Tribes and most free to play games.  You pilot from the cockpit so its similar to a FPS in that regard but your in a multi ton walking tank.  Movement is going to a bit slower and because of the tonnage and you have a lot of inertia.  There is a bucket load of weapons on your mech, but they generate heat to use so you need to be cognizant of your heat build up and pace your fire so you don't shut down or worse blow up.  Since your heavily armoured its going to take a bit of fire before you're brought down, and by the same token your foe.  Unless you stumble out in front of a lance of enemy assault mechs by your lonesome, they'll scrap you PDQ.

With the state the game is in now and at the rate it is progressing, the end of the year feels rather optimistic to me...
but hey, I'd love to be suprised.
