    PGI have no concept of scale.

    The tanks look like they’re the size of quadbikes, yet the helicopters are enormous. The Atlas is barely any bigger than the Shadowhawk, but the Locusts don’t even rise above the first floor (!) of the buildings.

    The gameplay doesn’t look impressive either. Enemies barely seem to do any damage and the player appears to have nearly unlimited ammunition. Hopefully things will change from this early build, because this crap looks like it should be named MechAssault 5. Yuck.

      Yep… that’s an early build alright. Not really a great thing to show, when this game is supposedly going to be released late 2018. I guess they wanted to show something off at Mech_Con? But still…

      Well in the very least, this is probably more of a case of showing people they are doing something at Mech_Con, rather than the devs showing off how proud they are with where the gameplay is at.

      Still can’t believe this is coming out late 2018.

    So… the shadowhawk is dang near indestructable, and takes just appear from now where.
    There is a catapult that just lets you do whatever you want, and even with a catapult, atlas, jagermech, 2 locusts, and 300 helicopters and tanks, he still just flys around doing who knows what with only an ac5, srm2, lrm (5?) And a m laser?
    No wonder he had essentially unlimited ammo… what a crappy build.
