It's developers listen to the community and make a great effort to try and balance all the different weapons that the game allows for, and they come up with some interesting solutions that force players to think about making balanced loadouts instead of just running out there with as many of the same powerful weapon that you can fit.
This has, however, made a bunch of people very angry. Don't ask me why, because I find it interesting that a fight doesn't end instantly because some guy had so much firepower in a single click that he could kill anything with one hit.
If you're into a tank/robot style ranged weapons combat game, this might be for you. You can buy more mechs in the game and upgrade them with weapons, engines, armor and so on, with resources you earn in matches. With real money you can buy "Mech Credits" that you can use to buy premium time, which boosts your XP and resource gain, or you can use it to buy mechs, including "hero" and "champion" mechs, which are only buyable with those, these work by either boosting XP or resource gain, but are otherwise the same as the ones you can with your earned resource. Additionally you can use the MC to buy skins, colors and decoration for your mechs, which allows for some pretty cool customization.
Development is ongoing and a bunch of very cool looking features are on the way in the next 6 months. It's still a relatively new game, development wise, and you will find problems and issues sticking out, but the fun mech combat is second to none and it looks to be getting better.
And hey, it's free. Play some hours, if you don't like it, at least you didn't spend any unrefundable money!
Another great thing is that you can play just a week a month and then whenver you come back, two patches will have been round and there'll be a new mech, maybe a new map, a bunch of fixes and other things changed! I love reading update notes for my games, and it means you always have something to look forward to … Expand
