I looked at some of the pictures at their website, are they doing a 'pre-clan wars' sort of thing?
Started playing Fasa Battletech in the eighties, all the different houses started after Fasa lost to Robotechs claim; copyrights or something.
Did you ever try the version with dice?
Yeah they set their development schedule on a 1:1 time ratio, setting it in 3049. So the clan invasions are still border skirmishes with the main event coming early next year.
Sadly they are still relatively behind on the development, so the full launch might be pushed back to next year.
Even with only 4 maps and 9 released mechs I've been having a ton of fun in the closed beta.
Open Beta should be coming up soon.
Warning, the learning curve is harsh, and at current the matchmaking system only matches weight, so people dropping randomly go into the same que as the people dropping as a team so combat is very one sided in favor of the people playing as a team. I highly suggest anyone who wants to play get in the free "unofficial" beta Teamspeak server and find a group.
