Nothing helps immersion like nausea!  awesome, for real

In all seriousness this is one of the games where it could work as the cockpit would tell your brain you are sitting in one place.

The Solaris 7 stuff has been patched in today. More importantly (?) so was the MechBay 2.5, which means we can finally, 6 years later, walk inside the mechbay and appreciate our mechs by strolling around them in first person. I wanted this since day 1.


EDIT: patch notes.

Thought I'd try it out. So I began the patching process as it downloaded 16 patches and installed them one by one. Two and a half hours later I had lost the mood when it finally finished.

Finally got into this. Didn't even bother with Solaris because I could tell what a clusterfuck that will be (Oh boy, lets innovate our 12 v 12 game by adding a 1 v 1 mode! Wooo fecking hoo.) But tried a few quickplayes with my old beloved Raven and that was surprisingly fun. BOY Ecm range seems to have been nerfed to all hell at some point. But I finally had a look at the XP system and I kinda like it. I naturally got all the Sensor thingies immediately because I'm an idiot, but I like the other things, and the maneuvering things really seems to make a difference in the maneuvering departments.

In the brief periods before I exploded at least.

I havent played since they put the new perks/xp system or whatever in, the idea of repurchasing shit for 20 mechs is not one I look forward too.

How's Solaris?

You don't have to rebuy anything Shannow, as you got reimbursed a lot of stuff, from XP to actual momney spent on modules. Give it a try.

Solaris? It's in the lore so "why not?". And lots of people have been asking for it. Aside from that, it's a matter of taste. It can be a fun diversion, a match or two, before or after the usual team matches. Problem is, the divisions are at the moment very imbalanced so there is ONE 'mech that you have to use for each division as all the other ones can't keep up. And then again the number of players: with 7 divisions and player numbers that don't exactly rival with Fortnite, it can be tricky to find a match not against a much better player, or find a match at all.

It feels like one of those things that we (?) all wanted and asked for for years, but now we'll never actually play.

This is patently untrue.

Oh? I didn't check thoroughly. You are probably right then. I mean, I have been refunded tons of XP and money, but I did not verify if it's all I invested.

Yes, you do get a lot back, but you don't get enough to cover your costs at all and, what's worse, you're still stuck with a system where respeccing is just a major, major, major pain in the dick

Don't get me wrong, I like MWO.  I do not like the XP system.  It managed to be worse than what was there before, something I didn't think possible.

Eh, finally fooling around with this. Dumped a couple of bucks into it to get some various mechs. It's fun so far. I'm not so good at preventing damage to myself, but it scratches the "Pew Pew Lazers" itch.
