ACK! Bad mental image right there.

I hope they don't break it by letting you load anything anywhere like in Mech 3 but closer to Mech 4 and like the board game where you have to deal with load out limitations.

I too registered for the game and almost finish rebuilding my old CH F-16 joystick set from 15-pin to USB.

MechWarrior Online | CryENGINEŽ3 powers MechWarriorŽ Online?

What the ****. How did I not notice this last week.

Free to play Mechwarrior MMO running CryEngine.

They could not possibly make this any better. My expectations are now way too high.

There are rumblings from the fans in their forums about having Alpha Strike either nerfed considerably or removed completely.

I understand how "gunboating" isn't exactly the most fun or balanced thing to do (or have done against you), but removing it completely would be silly.

For those who don't know what this is, it's essentially taking a mech, throwing on as many weapons as possible, grouping them all together, and firing them all simultaneously. Now hide behind a rock, and when a mech comes near, pop out and do it, then hide again while you overheat/wait for everything to cool down. It's definitely amusing, but fights end up turning into stalemates where the first person to come out from behind the rocks loses.

There has to be some degree of limitation or consequence to doing it. I used to boat a DAishi with Machine guns, and it could tear a mech apart without overheating ever.
OR even load auto cannons.

I think they will limit it, but not remove it.
