I must say I like Veridian Bog for its vegatation. I like the green, the dead larves, the cocoons, the worms in the water moving like it is twice as deep and the jungle feeling.

But it must have been heavily terraformed to suit that great for battlemechs. The shallow water, not running off from the higher terraces to fill the lower ones. I just wish it would look less artificial. Just like I dream of a destructible environment, each time I hide behind a tree from LRMs.

So we're driving down that 'pay-to-win' road by giving people who bought 200$ mech-packs extra mechs, that are obviously superior.

Which needs to be done because they need to give people who bought the clan collection an equivalent for having nerfed clan mechs to infinity after they get available for C-bills.

Though that duel of the kingcrab with a direwhale tells not much. Direwhales are called 'Direwhales' for a reason. They have some serious problems in combat. For instance, I finish Direwhales and Timberwolfs with my Stalkers and Battlemasters each day. If quirks get used properly, IS-mechs get serious advantages compared to clanmechs whose quirks just suck - I wonder when they will fix that.

Hopefully that Crab gets a time delay when shooting for opening those weapon bay doors. Makes aiming at moving targets real hard. Except Direwhales maybe. ;D

The mechanics and ways of the Community Warfare are actually that erratic I can't say much about it. I only had like 3 games, but those were quite enlightening concerning Invasion Mode gameplay.

The first game was IS defender vs Clan attacker on the snow map with 2 entrances. The attackers were basically butchered at the gates. Was quite boring for the defending team.

The second game was IS attacker vs Clan defender. Attackers got totally butchered. Feels so ironic when you rush the landing point hunting for attackers.

Third game was remarkable. Clan attackers vs IS defenders. It was the swamp map, and the defending position sucks. IS defenders had lined up as usual behind the gates. Clan attackers all broke through one of the outer gates and rushed past the IS mechs, ignoring them totally. As a defender I was shooting like mad, hitting rear armor all the time, but those Direwhales blew up the cannon in no-time, simply having confidence that their armor lasts longer than it takes them to blow up the cannon. Amazing.

Invasion mode is really a bitch. Endless wait and then you know right away at the start how the battle will end, depending on the initial performance of your team. There is no greater way to burn your free time.

How big might be the chance that I get a certain warhorn at half price? I want that warhorn so bad, but I don't wanna pay the full price. Way to expensive.

But so far I haven't witnessed a lot of 50%-off-on-cockpit-items events.  :-\

I was waisting endless time on community wars, getting in the way of those hillbilly clanners on their way to earth, receiving spanking after spanking, and all I get is these lousy rewards:



Well, I admit the other battle-types were more successive. Received 305 MC, 2 Mech' Bays and 4 Cockpit Items.

That's some good rewards farming. :)
Unfortunately I didn't manage to get any game-time in at that weekend.

But I'm enjoying the Urban Mech soooo much atm. ^^

Check em, and you know what the current status is.
Community Wars are pretty balanced after Beta 2, at the expense of Clan-mech performance.
