But only because they have the ability to have an obscene amount of armor on those legs compared to tracks which can't be armored with skirts or anything for some obscure reason. The ingame explanation only makes sense if you don't think about it and just accept it. I'm fine with that, but it's far from a good explanation.

It's actually stupid easy to throw a track on a tank.

well we wouldn't want our particular robot genre to be confused with those anime ones, which are most definitely not based on reality, whereas ours is just kind of.

Some of the Gundam stuff is really nice, the 08th MS team communicates a feel similar to what I get from playing Battletech or Mechwarrior. Including looking like a horrible 80s show, even though it was released in the mid 90s. Same for the original series if you can get over the horrible animations, but even those are not worse than the Mechwarrior cartoon series. Which is terrible, and which I love with all my heart.

The only bad part about it being released on pacific time is that it means there's basically no chance it'll be available before I have to work here on the East Coast.

I have a feeling it will be around 1 PM EDT/10AM PDT. If not, probably later.

Obviously that's when Steam updates but I doubt it will work like that because this isn't a normal release, it's going out to about 25k people, and the keys are all off-Steam.

Domo Arigato, Mr Roboto.


quote:

As we said last week, we'll send out a Kickstarter update with more info.

We are releasing on 6/1 Pacific Time. We need to propagate 25,000 Steam keys on backerkit and that will take time. That's why we're not giving a release time. You will get an automatic mail from Backerkit when your key is in your account.

Please spread the word through the myriad posts.

So, I'd take this to mean the process is probably at least partially manual. Don't be surprised is some people get access to their keys before you do.

Just to make sure I properly understand all of this, we'll be getting a KS update email that contains our key (or a link to it) sometime today?

The email will tell you your key is available, you'll have to access your BackerKit for the actual key.

Domo Arigato, Mr Roboto.


Don't worry, it's my first KS too. I'll just quote this from the official forums

quote:

Hey folks -- just trying to make sure everyone's super-clear on how to get into BackerKit tomorrow.
This is the magic web page: https://battletech.backerkit.com/

Enter the email you used during the Kickstarter (or the email you used to buy from BackerKit) and push the "Get my Survey" button. You'll get an email with a link directly into your account. Once there, push the "Get your Digital Downloads" button.

Do NOT get distracted by the section on the above page that talks about : "Managing multiple pledges on BackerKit? Log in here for your Backer Account."

That ONLY works if you have created a "centralized" BackerKit account which is used across multiple pledges. (You would have been given this opportunity the first time you filled out your BattleTech survey, but a LOT of people just skip that step. I can't tell you how many people contact our customer service thinking that they're not in the BackerKit system because the 'forgotten password' stuff doesn't work. They just didn't create a permanent 'centralized' account, so they never made a password!)

I know that's all super confusing!

But really the simplest thing you can do is just enter your email into the box, push Get My Survey, and check your email!

I can confirm this works to get you into your rewards. My key isn't there (yet...) but the other backer rewards distributed through BackerKit are, so it works.

They used BackerKit for the Shadowrun games (at least some of them?) and it worked fine there too.

"Not a Backer yet?

You’re not too late! Until two weeks before the close of Beta, you can head
here to become a Late Backer at the MechWarrior level and gain Beta access.

So if people are still on the fence, give it a few hours and you'll start getting some goon first impressions.
