Playing in the beta for a while now has given me some great access to some fantastic content. This is your chance to test it, find bugs, and leave feedback as the developers continue to improve and add features.

New 8v8 Matchmaking & Hero Mech Introduced

Right now I’ve been on an almost 3 months break from MWO and honestly, I needed it. seconds minimum for me), matchmaking takes at least a few minutes when I Faction Warfare is still the place where big groups farm pug teams essential) isn’t even mentioned on the MWOmercs Community page.
In fact I loved it. But eventually I fell away from the game, especially after the release this year of the Clan expansion. The Clans introduced of a whole new class of mech that just seemed to blow me off the battlefield at every opportunity. In terms of its content, the beta expansion of Community Warfare includes two new maps on which the various factions fight for supremacy. Players pledge their loyalty to a single faction, either in a short-term contract as a mercenary unit or as a permanent member of a house or clan.
Once committed, you earn loyalty points and in-game rewards based on your success or failure attacking or defending the many planets that make up the Inner Sphere. Just having a faction system that extends beyond paint schemes and avatar logos is a meaningful addition. Personal perks aside, for me the ultimate benefit of the faction system is seeing my wins and losses play out on the persistent and dynamic Inner Sphere map.
At the moment this new metagame plays out entirely on the new maps—Boreal Vault and Sulfurous Rift. This felt strange at first, that every Inner Sphere planet would have identical environments. The good news is that their layouts, with gates, turrets, and a giant orbital cannon to attack or defend, adds a new texture to MWO. Depending on how I navigate the terrain, sniper builds, giant brawlers, and even the most fragile light mechs can potentially find a meaningful role beyond just adding to the killcount.
Tactics and planning are key for a successful defense or attack on each planet.

Read times. MarauderD Lieutenant Posts: So it turns out ELO is going away with the patch today. They have created something called Pilot Skill Rating, based on performance in matches since January of this year. There will be 5 “tiers” of piloting skill. Matchmaking has long been one of the weak points for MWO, so hopefully after the patch today we’ll get better matches.

Fine, a history lesson then. While the IS has been trying to work out how the guns they use actually work and wasting all their resources shooting at each other, the Clans had been developing and improving all their tech. The clans, though, had a number of flaws. They were bred and conditioned to avoid waste in battle, so all fights were conducted according to a set of rules called zellbrigen.

I like giant robots. I like them a whole, whole lot, actually. They need us and our elaborate, hilariously political squabbles as much as we need their impossibly large arsenals and devil-may-care approach to dealing with skyscrapers. Back in the day, single-player was the perfect middle ground between those exceedingly admirable goals.

New to Shacknews? Signup for a Free Account. The on then off open beta for MechWarrior Online is finally on again, this time slated for Monday. Hopefully, developer Piranha Games has fixed the stability issues that will have delayed it for almost two weeks. Other issues the developer has tried to address during the delay are improved matchmaking, balance tweaks, and pushing the Community Warfare feature back.
Played a bunch last night. Good times! The latest patch has really opened up some great mech options at all levels with the addition of Endo Steel, Ferro Fibrous Armor, and Double Heat Sinks. Double Heat Sinks made it possible for me to core most mechs in two alphas.

In February I got into a discussion about when MWO will be released so basically when it eventually gets released the community is going to Players will not see any difference in matchmaking immediately during.
The refreshing thing about this game is the devs are actually listening to the players and adding things that the players are asking for, we have been nagging for new maps, we get a new one every month now, we have been nagging for more mechs, we get new mechs every month, we wanted hero class mechs, we got them, we asked for camouflage paint, we got that too.
There are also rumours that they have a hefty development grant as well. So its not really that surprising that there is more incentive to keep the game in open beta and tweak it until they have milked all the money they can out it. One of my officers recently reminded me that World of Tanks was in open beta for 2 years? I hope MWO is not in open beta for that long, and only because I would like to see it come out of the Vanguard division and be open to existing TAW members as well.
Despite the delay in release date though the division is getting stronger daily, we are fast developing a reputation as a well organised unit, we participate in regular team events, teach and train new recruits to co-ordinate and work as a team and have badges in place to ensure our members comply with a minimum level of qualification and expertise in the game. We have made great strides in building the division, not just because we have such a good team and all these structures in place, but also because we have such a friendly community, people get along, work together and have stepped up taking on responsibilities to make the game that much better.
When all the other clans and guilds rushed into playing 8 mans, we spent our time developing 4 man lances, so that we would have the structures in place to play as 2 lances in an 8 man or 3 lances in a 12 man, each lance able to function as part of a whole or independently as required.

The factions will battle for control of worlds, which provide bonuses to the controlling faction. There are three types of planets in the game:. At times, planets will change status between core, faction, and border. This will facilitate the dramatic changes in territorial control that take place during the canon MechWarrior timeline. At launch it will take only a single match to determine control of a planet.
This will very likely change in the future, requiring sequenced matches to control a planet.
The matches are totally random since there is to date still NO matchmaking lobby. Community warfare, something that follows the typical.

MechWarrior online News – release date
Is there anything more fun than massive suits of mechanical armor smashing into one another and firing lasers all over the place? MechWarrior Online , the free-to-play MMO-like set in the MechWarrior universe and developed by Piranha Games , would argue that the answer to that question is pretty obvious. The mech is tiny by MechWarrior standards, weighing in at only 25 tons, but it packs four powerful lasers on each arm and is quite fast to boot.
Piranha also confirmed the addition of the familiar Bitching Betty startup sequence, which should give longtime MechWarrior fans a jolt of nostalgia straight through the eardrums. Check out the full interview and a video of Death’s Knell in action after the break. Massively: Open beta launched in October.
