MechWarrior: Living Legends - Newsflash February 2010

MWLL Newsflash February 2010 Logo

Welcome to a small news update from the team of MechWarrior: Living Legends. Two months have passed since the release of the very first public beta version of our Crysis Total Conversion Modification and we've of course been monitoring your feedback very closely. Before we get to that, however, we'd like to thank all of you who voted for us in ModDB's Mod Of The Year 2009 competition. After winning Editor's Choice for "Best Multiplayer Mod", it was your votes that allowed us to also take #1 position in Reader's Choice for that category. Yet none of this is news to those of you who visit our website or follow us on Facebook or Twitter, so let's move on to the actual news which do, among other things, include the release date of our next beta patch.

I. MechWarrior: Living Legends and Fileplanet team up for reinforcements

As said earlier, we did monitor your feedback in our beta forums very closely and of course did not just drop work after the initial beta release, so we're already preparing the release of another patch. In cooperation with the kind folk at Fileplanet, we'll be releasing the MechWarrior: Living Legends Reinforcement pack, which will be a completely updated client including all patches and bugfixes done to this point. Before you ask, yes, there is a release date for this already: both, the MWLL Reinforcement pack as well as the separate patch will be released on Thursday, February 25th. Please understand that we can not give a specific release time, but will of course announce the release on our website and through Facebook/Twitter as usual.

II. Cheat protection coming

It has come to our attention that a number of users decided to go the easy way and modify their game files to gain unfair advantages in multiplayer matches. While we would have prefered to work on cheat protection together with chosen league partners at a later point, we consider this matter to be too serious to leave unanswered any longer. Therefore, we've reassigned our coders from working on new features to working on protective measures which will be included in the upcoming patch. Please understand that we will not be discussing the methods and mechanics of this protection in public for obvious reasons. Of course we don't believe to be done with this subject, but still hope it helps bring back the fun to all fair players.

III. Sneak peek: Clan Heavy Mech Nova Cat

One of those Mechs that have been featured before but did not make it into the beta release was this heavy Clan beauty, the Nova Cat. The screenshots below show the four textured variants that will arrive with the upcoming patch. Please remember that this is just a sneak peek and details might be made available at a later point.

You never had to subscribe to download from fileplanet you know. The subscription is only needed if you want to download from their private severs (their public ones anyone can download from).
