And poorly drawn.

I really like the new redesign.

Hey, that looks like Battletech!

This is encouraging.

I am a happy man with the resurgence of mechs!

That looks gorgeous!

where do I send them monies. /want /want really bad

Kind of makes me think of that latest D&D game for Facebook where you take a part of your friends' characters into a TBS dungeon. Promising. Kind of limits the usefulness of recon units. But after 20 years of btech video games, there's no reason I should stop complaining about that now!

That looks really sweet in a "it's Battletech the way you imagined it always was". Can't get enough of mechs and hexes.

Mechs and Hexes. Coming in 2012!

Fog of war.
LOS.
Firing arch indicators.
Elevation.
Hexes.

I need to give them my money NOW.

Also:

Watch and share your completed battle using a unique cinematic replay feature

*swoon*

I mean. Really. 2 new Battletech games in the same year-ish? HOW DO I CHOOSE WHICH ONE TO PLAY AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT?!?!

Now I have an urge to do some MegaMek in preparation.

From here:

Asynchronous Combat: Multiple concurrent battles with players from around the world
Competitive ranked games and global leaderboards lets the world know you’re in charge. Play for a chance to win larger, more meaningful reward payouts

So you play MWT asynchronously between rounds of MWO.

You will just sign up on the website, download the Unity plug-in for your browser, and begin to play

Sounds like browser based.... I much rather download a client. Not a huge deal though...

To keep things fair, a point system is in place to make sure each side is balanced. A huge, lumbering Mech covered with missiles will be worth more points than a tiny Mech with only a few lasers.

I was worried about the microtransactions with Mech parts until I saw this. Really happy they taking the "dont win by buying stuff" seriously.

As a massive hero academy fan, I'm really looking forward to this. It's nice to see turn base games are finding a ways to fit with the online F2P model/design.

Reposting in the RIGHT thread:

That PA article has me even more excited. I'm glad they aren't setting it up for wallet wins.

Oh, my copy of the Battletech 25th anniverary set will be here tomorrow. Weekend reading!

Sold!

You can't tell, but right now I am emitting a high pitched tone. This is not from my mouth, but from the frequency my body has achieved due to excitement.

So it's Frozen Synapse... with Mechs? Yes? Squeee!

When I first saw this pic, I thought that they were condom packs. How awesome would that be?

YESSSSSSSS

This is sounding ridiculously more awesome with every nugget of information. I haven't been this excited about a game in years.

Why aren't they taking my moniez yet!?!?

It's more effective if you put your credit card in the little tray that pops out when you hit that button.

So I just got an email offering me a new Mechwarrior Tactics t-shirt.

Any word on if this will have any kind of cooperative play/campaign or, is it all just PvP? I would give them sooo much money if they would allow me to play this through a coop campaign. That is something I always wanted in my Battletech games. I play with two of my friends but none of us want to GM, so it is a Deathmatch every time. Now we are spread out over several states so we don't play BT much anymore.

That's kind of annoying. I also got spammed for a tshirt sale on a game that isn't even in public beta yet?

Nice use of my email address. Appreciated.

Had they even included a single new screenshot with the T-shirt spam, I probably would have forgiven them.

Apparently, Sins of a Dark Age used the same marketing firm. Two hours after I got the MWT shirt email, I got one from them also pointing to CafePress.
