    Heya

    I'm currently playing mwo again and wondered if anyone wants to join me? It would be cool if we could get at least four people together so that we can play as a lance (group of four).

    It is a free to play game that is currently in beta and involves huge ass stomping mechs. It has similarities to cs in the fact that when you die you're dead - this entices strategy whilst playing.

    Here is some footage to entice you ;)




    Clan play from ACES

    Stream from Total Biscuit with a Dev and two other streamers. This video shows off the mechlab, loadouts, customization and gameplay.

    I'd give it a try, definitely looks like fun. But is it a Pay-to-win game again? I really dislike games like Cabal and 4story :/

    from what i see, the only mechs that can only be bought with real money are just ones with cool paint jobs, there not better than the ones that can be purchased with in game cash

    Tried it like sam, it is not a game for idiots like me, you need to put tim to get it working and frankly i can not afford that, so I stik to Hawken for the time being, same thing giant as mechs but Hawken is more instant and fast action that MWO, and you unlock the mechs just by leveling up ^.^
    Still think MWO is a cool game but again needs someone whe os not playing league of legends and 100 other games at the same time XD

    You have the ability to buy what's called "Hero mechs" Which are mechs with unique patterns and an slight xp boost, they also have unique configurations for their specific models. This game is not what i'd call a typical pay2win rather team2win ;)
