Of course there is one "beta" apologist in every thread. Considering anyone can download and play, they're taking money, and there will be no more wipes, it's no longer beta, no matter what they label it or how incomplete it is.

This. The quality is definitely beta, but the game is by all counts released. Taking money, no wipes, and big promotions for going "beta" are sure fire signs it's a shameless, rushed money grab for a currently inferior product designed as a triple-A MechWarrior game.

I don't particularly have a problem with their business model, since business is business, but I personally believe they should've used the $5 million they raised to put a bit more polish on the game (besides flashy graphics). Some good, honest QA can go a LONG way as long as the team is willing to be realistic about their product's flaws.
