Game is very boring, cant really stand playing it anymore and not going back.  It's a rip off, the amount they want for one damn mech is insulting.  The quality and content in this game is severely lacking.

I'm done waiting for them to finish the game they can take as long as they want not gonna play it.

@Ultra_Taco This is the first time MWO has had a double XP weekend. I guess with the lack of news for the game, editors were looking for any excuse to give it publicity :D

@davidsworld3 Obviously steady deliberate combat isn't for you, but diss a game when you obviously aren't the type to enjoy it.

Earning mechs is easy as well so your argument is invalid regardless.

Just go play Hawken if you need a super quick pace.

@davidsworld3 A mech can be earned in 1-3 days of play time, much quicker than most F2P games required grind. Is true they're kinda slow with development right now, but I still like it.

@ShimmeringSword @Ultra_Taco There isnt really much news to be had on it, because it is in full open beta for the public. Most announcements are just for new mechs and updates.

@ShimmeringSword @davidsworld3 Yeah, they added a cbill bonus for your first 20 matches, so you can get like 8M in 20 matches, enough to almost get the expensive assault mechs and more than enough to get a heavy mech or lighter.
