BattleTech Needs YOU!

Post by Typhoon » Sat Oct 03, 2015 2:52 am

If you've been hiding or living under a rock, or in a cave somewhere in the backwoods you may not have heard of this but if you have been out in the sunlight then you know about it. Please make the effort to contribute if you can!

I opted in at the $125 level. My nerdery is going to be Battletech themed with the old 3025 blueprint posters framed on the wall. I figure a House Davion banner would fit in nicely.

I fixed my car plus ordered replacement seats (5 years as a security guard tore up the seats to the metal). We also owe money to very good friends and family so we have to keep our entertainment purchases to almost non-existent while the wife tries to dig us out of this hole with her job.

Besides, HBS is using the MWO art which is a big turn off.

I am not so concerned about the art considering I have been waiting for years for a good BattleTech computer game. I've been playing MechCommander 2 again and wishing for new game so I'll survive the art if the game is good. That's what matters more to me. I do understand not liking the art though.

The KS has been a massive success.

$2.8 Million pledged.

now we wait 12-18 months to see if HBS keeps up with their end of the bargain. 8)

Hopefully they will. I got stupid at the last minute and pledged for the $275 level... I need something to decorate my new nerdery with.

I am thrilled to see the campaign reached all the goals! What a huge achievement and great support from the BT community! :thumleft:

PvP wasn't very high on my list of priorities but I am glad it got to that goal. I contributed after the first 24 hours and am looking forward to both the game and the perks. Now to wait until it gets released.

Omm, omm, omm, I will be patient, omm, omm! :wink:

I bit over 4 years down the line now . . . :lol:

So, is anyone other than ME actually PLAYING the game?


It's safe to say anyone playing can see the VAST changes between the "Concept Art" and finished product. :shock:

Still fun though! :thumleft: :thumleft: :wink:

Heya GRUD.

I actually play the game regularly.

the artwork is different, but not JARRINGLY so. Nowhere as bad as MWO.

I enjoy it.
