I love the customization options. I love the effects it has on actual gameplay. I hate how much time and energy needs to be poured into actually skilling out a mech. I hate the obfuscation of re-speccing.   A wise man once said “when developing a game, listen to what the player hates, listen to […]

Happy birthday to MetaMechs
