I wouldn't bother recommending this game to anybody, it's fucking terrible...
- pay 2 win (they removed mechs and made them premium-only)
- the trial mechs get matched up against real mechs, and if you have trial mechs on your team they don't really count as a full player, so in an 8v8, a trial mech is just .5 of a player.
- people run around with unrepaired mechs to save on money (this allows the enemy to one-shot them)
you combin trial mechs, and people with no armor (even the game mods/devs did this in live matches) and you have don't really have a team. the objective and way you earn money leads to suicide-rushing the enemy base with the trial mechs over and over (you can make around 1 million credits/hour doing this)
the maps are too small and the netcode for CryEngine 3 is atrocious, I cant count how many times I've shot a PPC only to have it clip through an enemies back and do no damage.
