Pretty good so far!

I'm loving it so far. It's a lot like MechCommander if you played that, but with more going on due to managing your merc group. So far I'm very impressed with everything but the load times.

The load times dont matter to me. But I'm taking issue with the sequence of play where they allow you to move, face and fire all in one mech turn. I wish they would have done the move and face turned based and then once everyone moved and faced then all mech fire at once.

A coordinated shot would be cool, but the effect with the turns is close I guess. I'm loving the addition of precision shots for calling shots. I haven't tried that on a downed enemy yet to see if the effect is compounded. I see more and more details and improvements over the beta, I'm absolutely loving this thing. I was afraid there wouldn't be many maps, but I haven't had one repeat yet. The mission types are a little repetitive, but I assume these early campaign missions are more or less training. It engages well from the start. I've pieced together some new mechs already and customized most of the ones I had to begin with.

Do you remember if they said anything about Clans? One thing I loved about MC was getting that MadCat early in the game and using it on each and every mission!! Not true to the board game rules (or would be very difficult!!) but this was before I discovered the board game so loved the cool factor!

The current timeline is earlier on than that. They say something in their FAQ that down the road they could go into later, but time passes in the game already. When you travel, weeks can go by, or you may choose to wait a few days for mech repairs and pilots to get healed up.
After the mess MWO became after the clan invasion, I’m enjoying just. being all Inner Sphere. Having your character born potentially a clanner that wound up back here is part of the game. I went that route just in case. LOL

From the FAQ. Keep in mind these answers are 3 years old now, so it could change
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/webeharebrained/battletech/faqs

3025 is before the Clan invasion. Will there be Clans in the game?
There are no Clan ‘Mechs in the game yet but the BattleTech universe spans hundreds of years and in success, we plan to include them in later installments.

Are you going to advance the timeline during the game to reach the 4th Succession War?
No. Our game will advance time in your merc career but not long enough to reach the 4th Succession War.

Thanks! I do enjoy the Inner Sphere pre-Clan era and prefer to start my games there but I do look forward to some Clan goodies.

Anyone know if there's a manual for this game? Or is there a built-in tutorial? Purposely did not play much of the beta so as not to ruin this experience, but I was hoping to get a manual to explain the mechanics and icons and stuff. I just installed my copy off GoG (no DRM? Wow!) but there doesn't seem to be a manual anywhere.

It's very intuitive and you're guided through. The ship side business is covered by the crew members that explain how to do everything with finances, contracts, mech bay upgrades and repairs. It's extremely well done and easy to pick up. Combat isn't hard to pick up at all and can be done with mouse only if you want.
The experience of the developers really shows in this game.

Great game, absolutely loving it! Fingers crossed MW5 will be just as good.

Give me this same game but piloting the mech and issuing orders and I'll be perfectly happy.

I was thinking that myself. Same exact mercenaries system with the random map / missions but make it first person with 4 (or more) person coop. It's be like the old chrome hounds game but so much better.

I miss the Neroimus War. All games can learn from CH's MP.
I'd take CH, just updated on pc, with first person, over just about any game.

Basically what we want is a combination of Mechcommander and MechWarrior....
One person as the commander seeing the overall situation giving orders to 1-4 pilot players in mechs...

Some of the guys who did chrome hounds are doing a new mech game called MAV. Its not very good yet though but I havent played it in over a year. Might be worth checking out. They used to have a free to play demo.

Yeah, I’ve followed that for many years but haven’t bought in. Are they the devs or fans? The war was what made that game so great, and the garage.

Hadn't played anything Mech since MechWarrior 3.
