    Anyone interested in the history of Battletech, the unseen and the legal shenanigans over the years should check out this fan-made research effort, they've really thrown everything in there, incl artwork over the years:

    Ah. It's because of the upcoming Robotech movie (and presumably toys and video games).

    Well, HBS better concede immediately then, and move on to the next Shadowrun.

    No wonder HBS rushed out that shitty beta demo to the backers. As this point, that's likely the only version of the game that will ever get released.

    Haha - IF it gets made after the disaster of Ghost in a Shell and how Robotech is nothing but a Frankenstein montage of 3 different anime series, also another potential snatch is that they actually gone to court in Japan over who owned who and this is the Japanese ruling, basically Tatsunoko Productions owned the animation to SDF Macross, the original tv series and Big West owned the line art, the designs, the logos, the characters ... well they own Macross franchise basically, now since Harmony Gold got their rights from Tatsunoko Productions that got then from Big West but those were only the international distribution and merchandising rights, meaning Harmony Gold owns shit as far the designs go since those belong to Big West.

    Ever wonder why FASA lawsuit as settled out of court? because last thing Harmony Gold wants is someone pointing out just because they brought the footage doesnt mean they own whats IN the footage, all the Macross mech designs are owned by Big West/Studio Nue/Kawamori, even if it unlikely to affect the Robotech Live Action movie legally (as they can come up with their own designs) it will certainly affect them in other ways because as Rototech was made from other series they cannot use those series because they dont those series designs, just their footage.

    There was some speculation there wouldn't be a Q&A this month, with the inevitable deluge of lawsuit and multiplayer questions, but it seems to be going ahead:

    This looks like one of the few sci-fi games that may draw my interest.

    Unfortunately when Jordan started going into something interesting Mitch would tend to interrupt and ramble on. But the main takeaway is there will be an update "very, very soon" about MP and the beta update. When asked if "the game is still on for 2017" they said info on that was also coming in the update, so I guess no.

    edit: According to Mike expect update "between the next two GoT episodes" :M

    I guess Mitch is keeping him frombsaying something that will excite the backers but may be cut out at any moment.

    Backers are like volatile, highly explosive mushrooms. Feed them shit and keep them in the dark.

    I haven't been following beta.
    Does anyone have any idea how it worked before and what is the new system?

    It was called "inspire", and when the meter filled up you could use it and get 95% to hit, wasn't too popular overall and became known as "sniper god mode" etc. Think the original plan was to speed up the snowball effect and end matches quicker, which they now want to walk back a bit. No info yet on what replaces it.

    So much for that. The delay is no surprise.
