Quality marketing, I keep hearing whiners mention leaving World of Tanks for this game, but nobody ever did and nobody really cares about it in general from what I saw.

yes its not out yet this being said the game is running buttery smooth so its probably going to get a full release soon. the game is amazing and finding matches is stupid easy. they only have matchmaking but it takes seconds to get in.

no its nit hawken is a bg ridden mess. while the game is more open minded perhaps hawken is also alot less of a tactical game. picking the right mechs and pilots making the correct clutch maneuvers can really make or break a match. in hawken its a little more about who can double team who and how they handle it. this is at least from what ive seen.

ive seen single scot clases turn the tides of a fight by crippling a teams long range players or seen assaults tanks entire teams like bawses

it varies by whos on your team, I enjoy playing with a group of friends and we destroy because we actually coordinate our attacks.

yes thats the hunchback medium mech. the hunchback is distinguishable by its giant arse should gun that can punch holes through mechs with two shots ive takens legs off with this thing. it has a couple of variants but the shoulder is where it will make u suffer from in the end

i tried it, but apart from the neat visuals I thought it was ordinary. I'd rather pay $50 for a single player mechwarrior.

Would like to check this game out, but I won't bother until they get Aus servers (if that ever happens).

Wish the developers were making more progress. I've almost entirely lost interest in the game because the areas that most need improvement have not been touched by the developers since closed beta.
