Infinite Game Publishing (IGP) and Piranha Games announced today that MechWarrior Online will go Open Beta on October 16. MechWarrior Online, one of 2012’s most anticipated titles, has been lauded by fans and the games media as the return of true Mech combat. Its successful Founder’s Program will officially end at midnight on October 14. Founder’s members are able to choose tiers of membership and get a head start here: http://mwomercs.com/founders.

“We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of the fans over the course of our closed beta period,” said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. “The amazing fans and the high quality feedback given to our team have helped us craft MechWarrior Online into a true MechWarrior gameplay experience. We’re more than excited to open up the game and look forward to continuing to expand the InnerSphere with our loyal fans.”

You want to remove your large laser and use a ppc? Too bad! The only weapon you can mount here is a laser!

You picked a bad example; lasers and PPCs are both energy weapons and share the same hardpoints. You could definitely replace a large laser with a PPC (provided you've got enough tonnage). Ballistic weapons and missile weapons, however, are distinct.

The controls also bug me, the little bubble with a line which I guess is supposed to simulate head tracking? Hate it. Just feels wrong.

Ironically that's one of my favorite features The bubble designates where your arm-mounted weapons are pointed, while the crosshair is for torso-mounted weapons. Arms track faster and have a wider firing arc than your torso, which makes sense from a simulation perspective and it is consistent with the table-top game.
