New MechWarrior Online Patch Adds Testing Grounds
A new MechWarrior Online patch has been released, launching the new Testing Grounds feature.
Testing Grounds is a Game Mode option that allows players to scout out a map’s layout, practice their mech movement, and play target practice against “dummy” mechs outside of a combat hot zone.
This patch also includes fixes for hit-scan weapons at high latency, new cockpit decoration items, and introduces the Cicada X-5, a 40 ton mech that sports a 330XL engine with a 133.7 KPH top-speed and packs a torso twist ability of 125 degrees on each side.
I think the Testing Grounds is a fantastic addition to the game, but question the usefulness of the man hours spent on those cockpit decorations. What do you think?
