Mechwarrior Online


Recommended Posts

So after a long... Long time.

MechWarrior is coming back to the gaming world. I'm epically excited and have been watching it for a little while. I'm sure a few of you older fellows would remember it very well and no doubt played :D

It'll be free to play online, but there are Premium options you can pay for and earn extra c-bills and xp etc.

There is a special "Founders Pack" that was announced today as well with varying costs and you get some bonus stuff, more exp/c-bill earning % etc.

Check out the site for more info:


Now for the cool shit:

looks good. Dont know if i like the idea of having to pay extra for exp and c-bills though.

You get xp & c-bills, just at a lesser rate than someone who pays for Premium.

So if you are really into it, there is a bonus - but like any game where you have to grind a little - you could be playing a lot and not need Premium vs someone who plays a bit less but uses Premium to counter it.

That said as long as the matching system is decent, and not anything like the abortions that Blizzard have used for years, then it should be great :)

I wonder if you can still get the original game to run on PC systems now? I might go search for it just for sh!ts and giggles :D

I managed to get Mech Warrior 2 (my favourite game back in the days of the Cryix 686) 1/2 working on win 7 using D-Fend, athough I can't get sound to work... :dry:

Back to topic: looks sweet, going to give it a try now.

As for the pay for extra xp & credits, looks like a similar model used for World of Tanks (& I enjoyed that game a lot even if the match maker in that game is shit from time to time).

Been waiting for this game for ages, bought the legendary pack the day it was announced lol. Good fun trying to explain spending that much money on a free to play game that hasnt been released yet

I'm all paid up - very strange paying for a game before you get it LOL...

If it's anything like the other games though, i'll be stuck on it for years. Was the only reason i upgraded PC really

No set release date - set for Q3 2012 far as i know.

BETA starts in the next few weeks... Hopefully i get in :D

The more i read and see about this game, the more epic it looks like it will be. Looks to be a LOT of content will keep coming over the first 6-12 months as well via enhancements to mechs, customisation and all sorts of rad shit (all free).

Only issue with that means it could potentially be quite buggy. Lets hope it's not like some other releases of recent times where users are essentially beta testers for 6 months

    • WTF? What spark plugs did you use? Gap? Have you cleaned the injectors? Shouldn't really have caused your problem, but refit the cat.
    • Hey all I have an 99 R34 sedan - RB25DE NEO and it’s running rich/poor but I’m not sure why. It was running poor when I bought it and the only thing the PO did before hand was drop the cat which he said caused the issue (Unsure if that’s true or not) The car has a chop while idling but once it warms up properly it runs smooth but still has the CEL. I ran the code and it gave me a MAF issue so I used sensor clean which didn’t work then replaced it with an aftermarket MAF but from a reliable seller which gave me code 55 but it still runs poor. I’ve also replaced the coil packs and checked the spark plugs and raised the O2 sensor out of the exhaust to allow it to get more air but still nothing. Any help would be great as I’ve spent a lot of time and money trying to diagnose this issue. Here’s a vid of it idling  hope someone else has had this issue and can help fix it thanks    
    • That seems different from the one on the R33, which is almost identical to the coolant temp sensor used by the gauge. Basically just a rectangular large flat blade single terminal device.
    • Intake air regulator is not the same as AAC valve. Intake air regulator is only there to raise the idle airflow at cold start. After a certain amount of engine runtime the shutter should fully close and all idle airflow goes through the AAC valve instead.
    • Depending on the coolant temperature and on the target engine RPM it closes and opens quickly to achieve the required target. It's a kind of duty cycle.
