I think the one thing that's missing (and Tzalik and I talk about it all the time), is lack of a persistant world. At least I haven't seen mention of it. I picture a map of the Inner Sphere with battles to change the influence selected either by developers or AI and the fate of the battles decided by the players based on their allegiances.

Yeah, I'm not crazy about key-turning. I like the game some. Looking forward to getting to where I can buy a mech and do some customization. Wish the game entailed more than just queuing for a pvp battle on one of a handful of maps.

I hear you, Mish. I feel like I'm only playing a small part of what the game SHOULD be.

As for what the game is, I find if quite frustrating to get used to controling the mech. Perhaps I need to turn down the sensitivity of my mouse or just seriously look for my Cyborg.

Why, when you could just buy this?

I haven't played in a while, but the controls are a bit weird. The very first thing I did in my first match was haul ass 90 degrees to the left, fly out of bounds and blow up. It was literally 15 seconds till I'd killed myself.

Once I got better at it I didn't mind too much.

I do wish there was something more. Like a global map or something of that nature. It could get pretty epic.

I put my sensitivity down to about 75% of normal, helped a bit. with the torso control. I wish I had analog control of the other turn.

That joystick concept looks awesome.
