Most of the reviews said at the moment it has potential but the bugs are very numerous. I love mech games and I had a blast with Steel Battalion, ended up selling the game and controller for much more than I paid.  I'm hoping that this game is fun been a long time since I play something like this.

I still haven't found time to play it. :(
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Damnit! I own the game, but keep forgetting to play it. So many games, so little time.  :negativeman-55f:

Meanwhile, in the inner sphere...

I am at 150+ hours ingame and counting.
I have finished the campaign, all my roge mechwarriors are still alive - i have maxed out all of them - and now it's hunting time for mech parts in the inner sphere.

The community is very acitve, and there are currently 253 mods up and running: https://www.nexusmods.com/battletech/mods/
most noteworthy is the hangar of the disposessed - which brings back the WHM and MAD + variants - and of course roguetech.
Dozens of little QoL stuff, which fixes nearly every little quirk the vanilla version of the game might had.

The studio is also actively engaged in post-launch services, Main Version is 1.1.2 now, with 4-5 updates since release. Although i never encountered any bugs mentioned in the changelogs.

But - the most important thing for me:

The game is very playable on my 2-year old Thinkpad T460s since the very beginning!
Ok, my fidelity settings are medium at most - but thats enough for me. Giant! Stomping! Robots! Can't get enough of'em.

Best regards,
MT

Meanwhile, in the inner sphere... :

BattleTech patch 1.8 has been released along with the 3rd DLC Cotent, "Heavy Metal":
now this game is basically Feature Complete - and with official mod support, too!
[The modders have a big headache from this one, the official release messes up with the former ModTek process, but hey - this beast is here to stay.]
More than that, they finally delivered the two most anticipated "unseen" mechs to date (for free!), the marauder and the warhammer.

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2019/11/22/battletechs-hard-hitting-heavy-metal-expansion-is-out-now/

Can't wait to start a new campaign over the holidays along with all three DLC included in the seasons' pass.

So if you haven't played the game yet, now is a good time to start with that.

(I will wait a couple of days until the dust has settled and my favorite QoL mods will work again in 1.8)
