Thread: Battletech: Any other backers?

    Battletech: Any other backers?

    Hidy ho all, I just backed battle tech on their website. I would have backed them on kickstarter, but I had no idea they were creating another battle tech game, till it ended.

    I'm curious, did anyone else back this game?

    Haven't backed it. Not my kind of game, as I prefer the MechWarrior style gameplay. (MW3 was my first online game!)

    Had this at least been a Mechcommander game I probably would have jumped on it.
    (Basically, I find turnbased games to be boring)


    I do however like seeing just how grounded the developers of Battletech are.

    They have a decent track record too. If you look at any of the newer shadow run games, you can see some really good heads in there. Though I haven't played any other games by them myself, I've heard of a few blunders.

    Can't comment on any recent one, but I have an older game of Battletech, it was ace. I think I played it on a Pentium, so probably around 1996.

    I backed in the Kickstarter. Haven't followed it much as they're going to take time to do it right, but their last video is showing a game I want to play!

    I didn't back it at the time, as I was till sore from PGI and MWO - but this looks good - I still play tabletop, so looking forward to it.

    The Battletech Beta dropped today & I've just played my first game.

    It's VERY polished but it's only a 1v1 (AI) skirmish so far but it's a lot of fun. It kinda reminds me of the ED alpha, which is high praise indeed!

    Battletech looks interesting, but I never back anything. Looks like XCOM with Battlemechs. Lol

    Currently milling about in MechWarrior Online, it's not bad, but not good either. It's a good break from ED, but it's all meaningless 12v12 battles on the same 11 maps, of which the voting system only ever selects 3-4. Lol
    Their faction play thingie seems to require excessive grind to even get in to..

    Looking forward to MechWarrior 5 though.
