I know many people have a special spot for this game in their hearts so I assume many of you have it. Even though i've replayed this game about 8 times, I have never once played multiplayer, even though its supposed to have robust online support and an active community of people bringing out new skins and maps for it.
It is also supposed to be released free (download) shortly, but that got held up on some legal issues apparently.
So... anyone still got MW4 kicking around and want to get a game going? Mechwarrior, Mercenaries, im good with either.

eah...IDK and I even have Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries installed on my PC as well, good sir. With the MEKTEK packs.
What I have been able to gather the most popular Mechwarior 4 online stuff is with Mech IV: Mercenaries and the MEKTEK mechpaks and all that. Some of it is pretty cool...but there are a ton of lamebrain custom user mechs and custom user weapons added by it that...they claim are suppose to be balanced, but the shit is just way better than the vanilla stuff in the game honestly...especially the "Heavy Lasers" are so over powered it's a joke.
I mean, maybe it's just me...but when your mech's left and right torso is basically composed entirely of a big missile rack...where the fuck are the engines, servos and armor located? And then said mech is a 65 ton mech with like 20 tons of armor and able to carry like 30** tons of weapons. this equals: fucking bullshit. THEN- some of those mechs do some extra lame shit where they put optional mech pieces, such as missile / gun racks in front of vital components just to ass-hat their way to extra durability.

Thats disappointing about the MEKTEK packs, I've never used any of them.
Isn't there an option to just have better skins/higher poly versions of the mechs included in the games?
