I have just given this free to play game a go and it is brilliant. seems to have stuck to the table game very well. can be addictive. really captures the different weight classes fantastically. my preferred mech is a light Jenner mech with 6 medium lasers. hard trying to not overheat. of course my pilots name is Rocdocta

anyone else play this? thoughts?

Link or directions? Sounds like a mech fix without the cost.

I just googled mechwarrior online. The set up is very straight forward. Patch and play!

it can be found at the following:

http://mwomercs.com/

the game costs nothing to buy. The game costs nothing to play.

If you want to upgrade to better mechs you can fight in the free mechs provided or spend real cash to get mech warrior creds. i played for a bit on the free mechs and it was great. have splurged US$50 and bought some new mechs and exotic paint schemes. I jumped on another mech and tried death from above using jump jets...missed and died. Great fun that literally will not cost a cent to play unless you want it to. Cant say enough how impressed i am with it.

there are many good youtube vids and the tutorials are all videos that explain everything. it is classed as a simulation and not an arcade game. the assault mechs can easily box them selves into a corner and spend ages trying to get out of a dead end. the more nimble mechs can really control the battle until they do something silly. i was running circles around an atlas and wrecking its arms until i got cocky and was 1 shotted... prides itself as a thinking gamers FPS.

i was ambushed the other night when i saw a vulnerable lone lightmech by himself. i shot it up and gave chase. ran around the corner and straight into 3 heavier mechs as a trap. Ah crap. pew pew pew! mechwarrior rocdocta has died...

a really good idea is that the battlegrounds have dynamic weather and lighting so one day it may be snow and dawn with low visibility and the next game it is hot and night.

Been playn it just as closed beta began it has evolved quite a bit. so far i am a master pilot with hunchbacks and cataphracts. Call sign is Action man :-), thing to note due to severe server lag for us aussies anticipate and lead your shots or use lock on weapons. Streak srms make victims cry

Haven't played since the Beta Testing, but patched it last night and gave it a run.... enjoying it more then before but I still wish there was a way to view your mech from the outside instead of the cockpit.....

+1 to that.

However I every game i see my mech from the outside when i see.......

"You are dead"

seriously though i cant see them allowing a 3rd person view as it would remove the limited view of the world aspect and you could track the pack of lights swarming your atlas. I would love to what my mech looks like for the camo. i like blocky urban in black grey white but is it effective? Oh well have to trust to my 118km/hr and AMS to save me.

Hah, don't go on the official forums saying you want third person. The crazy rabid fanbase will eat you alive. The devs are talking about adding it though. I personally prefer the cockpit view.

You guys should come play with my Merc Corp. ARMD.net.au

It's much more fun when you play in a group and use teamspeak to coordinate :)

i cant find the group. do you have the full web address? never mind, found it.

do you have to use the mech colour schemes? or is it a "nice to do but not mandatory?" i really like my vagabond camo with black white and orange as it looks like a snow tiger when done right and it gets a lot of compliments on how cool it looks.

Hmmm this is it copied and pasted from the url. http://armd.net.au/index.php and this is our forums http://armd.net.au/modules.php?name=Forums

There is a merc colour scheme but I believe the only time you have to use it is for like official events and the like.

We mainly use the Nogutsnogalaxy teamspeak which is
voip01.n1585.hypernia.net:9992 and password: mechwarrior (i think haha)

We also have our own channel which is
203.88.125.128:9876 (no password)

You'll find people on the NGNG mainly unless we're doing some organised event.
