MechWarrior Online Patched

The MechWarrior Online Forums have details on a new patch that's now live to update the MMO shooter to version 1.2.168. This is said to be the game's largest content update so far, adding a new conquest mode, three new mechs, an economy update, a new map, and more. Here are some details:

Massive new additions to MechWarrior Online will be live today as Piranha Games and Infinite Game Publishing announce “Conquest Mode” – the highly anticipated mode that allows for capturable locations in the Inner Sphere, greatly altering gameplay strategies. In addition to Conquest Mode, three epic new Mechs are available today as well as a new twist on an urban environment that will force you to walk the precipice of darkness (and ledges): River City Night. For beginners, the developers have addressed ease-of-advancement issues faced by new players by implementing an entirely new reward system enabling a more rapid advancement toward purchasing more powerful Mechs. Existing players will also benefit from economy changes.

“Conquest mode is a huge addition to how the game is played and one that I think veteran players will enjoy” said Bryan Ekman, creative director at Piranha Games. “We’re also excited to see how new players react to the changes in advancement at the beginning of the game. One issue we’ve heard repeatedly is that MechWarrior Online has a steep learning curve. We feel this content update drastically improves this aspect of the game and look forward to hearing the feedback from new players.”

Well Im hooked on MW:O. I do get some of the complaints though, the game is only now begining to look like a proper beta up until the last patch it seemed more like an alpha.

I really dont understand the 'grouping weapons' gripe though?! Use right control and the arrow keys and presto. Your mech will remember the groups so you only need to do it once...

The Stalker is too fucking OP. Im not one to usually whine about balancing but its so powerful its almost laughable. It can obliterate any mech on the field in the blink of an eye (Inlcuding an Atlas) and this wouldnt be such a problem but its almost as tough as an Atlas which is a a huge NO NO. Since on paper it has barely more armor than most heavies.
