    In regards to the game being in beta and whether or not it will be released as a full game, Harebrained Schemes is not some flash-in-the-pan little group of developers with a great idea and shitty organization and planning where they only do Early Access releases but never finish them.

    HBS has people on board that helped make the original Battletech setting, and they've already released multiple quality Shadowrun games (for which they also have some of the people who basically created that setting). It would be pretty hard to find people more interested in capturing the spirit of these universes, or with more personal motivation to see new games released in those settings that aren't total shit.

    So the full game getting released is a given, whether you buy it now or later. lf you buy it now, it's just a chunk of the game meant for testing, so there's no reason to get it unless you either just really want to support HBS or really want to try the beta.

    Also sometimes it shows people in game, or even deployed, when they are infact offline. Which you dont know or realize until you try to send them a invite/message, which returns an error about them being offline.

    I have to say, after getting over my initial misgivings about this multi week multi part event, I am enjoying it a lot. I have been getting really good at piloting my Phoenix Hawk, and am averaging over 300 damage a match, with a good match getting 450 and a bad match around 200.

    On the other side, the previous Faction Play event only required me to Play 2 games, the next two Faction Play events require 5 scouting matches where I dont get immediately curb stomped (not too onerous) and then to WIN 2 Invasion matches, which is going to be super aggravating if I dont do it entirely among a FRRHUB team.

    For now, my Punch Club videos are going to stick to some semblance of "hardpoints" on the 'Mechs, even as I tweak them to be Melee-friendly. My next planned video is a Hunchback lance with the 9xSL setup.

    After that? I have no problem going sillier.

    Does Battletech have rules for mounting jump jets in the arm for a rocket punch? We need to flex our canon status to make that happen.

    How large can the battles be in the final product? Company/Trinary seems the likely limit, but regiment/cluster size would be baller.

    Ugh...had one of the most frustrating nights of Mechwarrioring in a long-ass time. After hopping off from Magic's group (MagicPrime, Wolvesight, MortZA, and a couple others who's names I'm afraid I can't recall), I played a few matches with one of my RL buddies (which was frustrating in its own right...he regularly pilots a LRM80 Supernova)...but then solo queue wasn't any better. All told, in the 2 hours of matches after I left the PA group, I could count the number of wins on one hand of a farm-hand who had run afoul of a combine harvester.

    The most aggravating loss was a Conquest on HPG. Basically, our assaults and a couple of heavies decided to push down into Theta....except they didn't push. No, no...they would inch forward, take a shot, get shot at, then stop and step back. Repeat that until three of them died, and nobody on the enemy team had died. So, basically, we lost because the majority of our tonnage refused to actually do what they were trying to do. I mean, I just hope that they learned something from that and my...*ahem*...polite suggestions on what to do if you're trying to push a location (hint: it helps to actually push instead of stopping at the tightest bottleneck). Oh well.

    No see you have it all wrong. You had a great night after leaving the PA group to get rolled with your friend to complain how painful it was.

    Then you had this great match on HPG where the other team's Assaults decided to exchange peeking and poking with a few mechs underneath at Theta. Then your team eventually won that exchange and rolled the rest of their team to victory. It was a glorious match for the ages.
