Mech Warrior Online Beta This Week

The MechWarrior Online Website announces Operation: Inception, a pair of founder's program packages for Piranha's upcoming online mech combat game, also announcing this week will see the launch of the game's closed beta test. Word is that those who purchase one of these bundles will get guaranteed access to the beta. This post clarifies details about this, including that they will not prevent those outside of North America from participating:

You've probably seen our big news today - Beta signups are official! But how, you ask?

First, log onto the forums; then click profile and it's right there! For greater clarity closed beta starts today! we will be inviting users as soon as tomorrow.

Secondly, how the Founders program beta/early access works: The program is purchasable on June 19th and you gain guaranteed access to the closed beta on July 17th.

Thirdly, the reason this announcement stated 'North America' is that it's for North American servers As we have mentioned we are working very hard to launch MechWarrior Online in every region worldwide. We may also run a similar Operation for other regions, therefore we are required to recommend that for the best play experience you register and play in your region in the near future. However There is no IP blocking. You can signup from everywhere just keep in mind that if you are outside of North America we cannot guarantee your play experience.

Thanks for being the most awesome fanbase ever, and we hope this clears up your questions.

Now this is gonna be bigger than that pos GW2. can smell the fail on that game already, just like the facebook ipo all hype nothing to back it.

Son, a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Lay off the meth.

You know Cutter, if you just replace 'bigger' with better, then the comment doesn't sound at all laced with meth!

My problem is this:
However There is no IP blocking. You can signup from everywhere just keep in mind that if you are outside of North America we cannot guarantee your play experience.

I can pretty much guarantee they will however negatively affect those that stick to their own region hoping for lag free gaming. The last thing I wanted for Mechwarrior, was a F2P model with clustered virtual servers, and 300 ping asian connections butt-humping playability from the get-go.

I gotta say...I will be sorely disappointed the second I see an Atlas rubber-band it's way across a map just because they didn't region block.
