New MechWarrior: Online Mech

Infinite Game Publishing announces the addition of Pretty Baby, the newest hero mech in MechWarrior: Online, Piranha Games' online mech shooter. This is part of a major update to the game that includes "the long-awaited Death Screen and a fantastic new 'end of round' screen," as well as the ability to chat before a match begins. A 2013 February Developer Update has details on these and other changes, and this trailer shows off the new mech.

Is a single virtual battlemech worth $24 USD?

Other than some pricing ... inconsistencies ... which I have issue with, I have nothing but good to say about the game itself. I am excited to see the meta game arrive, along with some control over whch map you play. The game could be greatly improved with a lobby system similar to L4D - the crap shoot of a matchmaker is probably the weakest part of the game, which could be easily remedied by putting the "logic" of the system into the hands of the players and lettng them coordinate the matches themselves.

I agree with all that youve said, yet I have recently stopped playing. This is not the patch that will pull me back in. The one Im waiting for is the meta game itself and the arrival of the clans. Ive seen all that this beta has to offer and yes the mechanics are looking good but its still too simple to be called a proper game by any standard.

Im going to stick with PoE and will come back to MWO if they add all the missing content.
