Went in that website and try to see whats that and i still dunno what is a MMORPG? shockedAnd it say it use an NM4!? rolleyes Dunno neither whats that. shockedSo if they dont get more clearly about what they have that are so great i wont do a thing bout it. tongue To me it just look like a MWL or an NBT or a PR1 or an 302b. In what way is it greater then those game? What is new about this MW4 game? It only will disperse more MW players if they add a new league or different version. Look now how the players are disperse. We should try to close more of those games so we come all together and then get a better chance of MW to survive, not create a new old one.

So, in what way is it greater then what we have nowhuh Please tell me cause i am (Realy) curious about a MMORPG. What ever that mean. cheesy

Quote:
From Wikipedia & Urban Dictionary
An acronym for "Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game". Players play the video game competing against and cooperating with other players connected to an online network. Most require players to purchase the software and pay a subscription fee to participate.

Some examples are EverQuest, World of Warcraft, Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies among others. These games have spawned a sub-culture of gamers with many of their own words and phrases unique to the experience.

1. MMORPG's rule, but I haven't had a date since I started playing. sad
2. I'm a l337 lvl 60 in WoW. I pwn!


To my knowledge its a mod of the NM4 which I think stood for Net Mech 4 which was very RPG like. You all drove STOCK mechs and each map represented a planet in the inner sphere. If you won the map you won the planet. Then thats your territory. I'm guessing that this is an addon for that which makes it more like...an mmorpg.. rolleyes So it will be WoW with Mechs instead of wizards and trolls..... hmm... Mech with out trolls..... not possible... grin

yah I'm not into MMORPGs but in the defense of this game, its different in the fact that its free..(I hope! shocked ) would suck if it cost $$$!

Hmm here is a video of it:

HMM after watching that video... I have a new respect for it. Its kinda neat! It actually gives players something to fight for other than bragging rights. Although playing for fun is awesome, I think a lot of people would love this...providing that it was free...

NOT AT ALL. There are actually tactics involved. Pop-tarting and sniping are NOT good tactics. In fact, on these maps there are ways to get around the snipers and pop tarting is just asking to die. Especially when you have 7 guys shooting one target. Also, if you're having problems installing here is an easy install for ISW itself. You have to install MW4, PR1, and NM4 but this should do all of the ISW stuff for you. http://s199360044.onlinehome.us/Setup/Setup.exe

We should try to close more of those games so we come all together and then get a better chance of MW to survive, not create a new old one."

Doum, I totally agree, that's the most substantial argument against bringing up another Mech mod.

Just let's sum up, in the meantime there are at least 6 MW4 Mercs based games/mods:
- Mercs PR0
- Mercs PR1
- Mercs MekTek MP3.02b
- Mercs HC
- Mercs NetMech4
- Mercs ISWARS

Let's face the facts - MW4 Mercs is an old game with rather limited player base. I guess there are only a few hundred active players left, maybe 500-1000. If you have a look at the player numbers at MekTek server browser website, you'll see maximum 100 players online. And that's just the point - this is definitely not enough to make more and more new mods. Actually, a new mod like ISWars won't bring back many ppl to Mercs or even attract new players, BUT will rather take away players from the other existing Mercs versions. Basically it's just a cutthroat competition with the result of WEAKENING the whole game by splitting the player base. Dispersing the Mech community isn't a good idea at all.

So this one gets a clear THANKS NO from me.

actually we're trying to combine everything into one game. ISW has EVERYTHING that you could find in the other leagues/mods.
