How has the player base / game been doing recently?
I read over some old reviews stating the player base wasn't very active & the game is a bit buggy. That still the case today? The game looks promising.

I don't "know" but i would guess it's rather dead until next update.

We have been working on a rewrite of the entire game over past few years so the version up on live right now is not the same game as the current version in testing and development. With that said, we are still working to the content level of the current released version. BETA 2 that we are uploading to the beta channel today has multiplayer support and a major milestone to that. Once BETA 2 is live for MP testing we will be working on finishing content out to match the uploaded version.

The rewrite let us improve almost every system in the game including graphics and physics. We have to self fund the project with contract work so we do not get as much time to work on the game as others but hopefully all of these improvements will lead to as product the players enjoy a lot better. I would expect it to be pretty dead until we get closer to release though. If you are uneasy about purchasing a product this early in development with multiplayer that may not have many playing, then I would recommend just adding us to your wishlist until we are further along and reevalute your decision then.

We want the game to be the best it can be and we take community feedback into consideration as we go. We also want the players to be happy so I don't want to convince you to buy into the game now if you will be unhappy with it. It would be better to wait if you want to play the game and not worry about issues or helping along with development.

Thank you for that awesome and honest answer. It's been on my wishlist for a while - should stay there for longer.

Could you compare this game to Phantom Crash (from the original xbox)?

I have not played Phantom Crash. Looking at some video of it real quick it does look similar to our third person mode but it is more arcade than our game. We are not simulation heavy like mechwarrior but we are definitely closer to mechwarrior than a more mech arcade game.

Sadly I doubt this will be a complete game. It has no single player and no playerbase thats active in mp. It has potential but sadly it's not funded very well and most play mwo for their robot stomping action. I long ago gave up on both games personally but only this because it doesn't have enough players to be worth going on for.
