MechWarrior Online

Game description

MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online is a tactical BattleMech simulation set in the year 3050 AD. As a pilot, better known as a MechWarrior, you take control of the most powerful mechanical combat units the universe has ever seen.

The game is set in a 1:1 timeline of the BattleTech universe, with today`s 2014 corresponding to the year 3051 in BattleTech history, and every day that passes in real life also passes in the game. This means that we are on the eve of the upcoming Clan Invasion, using the latest technology that was accessible in the 3051 timeline.

MechWarrior Online puts MechWarriors in teams on a tactical battlefield, where the victors wade in the spoils of war and are rewarded with the almighty C-Notes (C-Bills / in-game currency).

Each team consists of up to twelve players, with the two teams competing in a closed battlefield. Communication is key, whether it`s through in-game chat, the integrated K3 or another VOIP solution. Staying constantly in touch with your team members will drastically improve your team`s chances of success.

The different weight classes of BattleMechs ensure that everyone can develop their very own supporting role on the battlefield. Fast-moving scouts can provide targets and tactical information to the main force and team commander. This information allows the pilots of support and assault mechs to make the best use of their resources. Support with long-range firepower and the super-heavy mechs with their extremely high damage potential, will use this invaluable information to effectively put their mission into action. It`s up to you, the pilot, to customize your BattleMech`s armament and electronic systems to fulfill the role you want to take.


What is a BattleMech?

A BattleMech is a heavily armed fighting machine that has an internal structure similar to a skeleton, complete with activators (joints) and myomer fibers (muscles). When assembled, a BattleMech has the rough appearance of a giant, bipedal humanoid. BattleMechs normally weigh between 20 and 100 tons and are divided into four weight classes: Light, Medium, Heavy, and Superheavy.

BattleMechs can have a variety of weapon systems, including energy weapons (lasers, flammers, particle projectiles), ballistic weapons (autocannons, machine guns, Gauss guns), and missile mounts (long-range missiles, short-range missiles, lightning short-range missiles), as well as a variety of control and targeting systems. In addition to all these things, a BattleMech is equipped with a series of heat exchangers that help it manage and dissipate the built-up heat from all these weapons and all the electronics.
