    The Q&A was interesting, given it's the first one since people really got a chance to play the game and the questions got more into the mechanics and specifics, but there was a fair bit of waffle and joking around at the beginning and between questions, so I'll repost a transcript once the usual BT forum sperg produces it.

    One takeaway - patch in "a weekish", but no commitment on whether it will include multiplayer yet, probably coming afterwards.

    Not on YT yet, as far I know, but here is the Twitch video:

    Do you mean a fake girlfriend to hide your homosexuality or just a normal beard?

    Both seem likely.

    So everyone is praising that combat. I hope the campaign can save the game.

    Wasn't codex reaction to combat 'it's boring, banal, shit'?

    Yes, but we are not the place HBS are catering for. Casuals and Mechwarrior fans are those.

    The game has mechanics that could make it solid if properly balanced. I mean they got that multiplayer goal...
    It has movement, due to flaking mechanics, jumpstomp, melee.
    It has rock-paper-scissors with the weapon tradeoffs.
    And it has incomplete information.
    It could be decent.

    I have watched a few gameplay videos and it frequently devolves into "take turns to run around enemy mech and buttseks him in the rear armor".
    Someone should tell them that things like zones of control, attacks of opportunity and such were invented for a reason.

    Still no word on PvP. Wonder if they're bringing in outside help.

    (insert "inject T" joke here)

    I want to like this, but they need to triple the animation speed.

    Watched the Q&A. The animation stuff was fine, if you're interested in that, but the takeaway on multiplayer is they were still pretty vague about it, just talked about "rebuilding from the foundations, better in the long run for the project, even if it isn't what HBS mgt/backers wanted to hear at the time" etc. Doesn't sound like a week or two.
