      I haven't played MWO for years now even though I've spent hundreds of dollars on mechs.

      I'm actually going to wait a bit and see how MW5 turns out before jumping in...

      All the promised community things around MWO did not pan out at all as I had hoped, so I'm not really sure if I want to put any money into this game.

      I wish that there was a pack without the online add ons

      Does anyone still play MWOnline?

        I still jump on at least once a week. I love Giant Stompy Robots.
