MechWarrior Online Patch Adds Offline Testing Grounds

A new March 2013 Creative Director Update for MechWarrior Online has details on a new content update that's now live in the MMO mech combat game. This includes what Piranha Games and Infinite Game Publishing call "arguably the most important feature to date," an offline Testing Grounds mode to allow players to refine their approach to battle before entering the actual battlefield, which would surely draw the approval of Sun Tzu.

The offline mode should be a huge help. MWO has been getting better and better each update. Really would like to see some changes for weapons grouping (in the mechlab) and some destructible environment features (ala World of Tanks; trees, fences, etc.). I also am not a big fan of some of the hardpoint options on some of the mechs. I'd really like to have a LRM on each shoulder and large pulse lasers on each arm of my Stalker, plus heat sinks and ammo to support them. With the current hardpoint system, I end up with the layout of weapons being weird. Even if it's mostly cosmetic, I'd like to see either adjustable hardpoints or more custom configuration options.
