mechwarrior intentions/faction

29 posts in this topic

So with the beta going through its paces now, thought i might start some talk about the game. I gather that there is some pretty good interest in playing it.

 

I *think* wed have the choice of picking a faction OR going merc. If thats wrong please correct me.

 

Also from what i understand, going 'merc' is the only way to form a "clan" in game. I think you lose whatever house bonus might be available doing so, but you get more freedom of movement.

 

At any rate im going to try and find the forum posts that might shed light on those questions, if you do before me please post them.

 

So have we thought about:

 

Do we intend to form a clan for the game?

Whod be in charge?

Under what name?

 

Since were drawing near launch, might be a good idea to start thinking/discussing these things if ta havent already.

Found a bit of info here. In a nut shell:

 

House faction players dont pick their fights, but their fights help out the houses global perks and planetary control. Essentially pub matches with IS consequences.

 

Mercs fight in the border planets, much like clan wars in WoT now. They can also earn loyalty points for the house theyve contracted with giving them bonuses

 

Lone wolves fill in any fight that cant be filled by mercs/factioned units. No control over what side theyd end up fighting for

I also reserved Mastidon so you can count me in on what ever the plan may end up being.

I don't have a preference at all what faction I am. My pilot name is "The Hero of Canton", as Jayne in pretty much any form I wanted was taken.

its up for sale now through the 7th of Aug for anyone interested in it. I'll be buying mine on payday :-/ looked at my fundage and wife's b-day takes priority.

 

do your due diligence on the variants available! research their loadouts and match 'em with your playstyle as that is the first question you'll be asked when clicking to buy the founders pack! (wish they'd let us choose which variant...but w/e, cant win them all)
