Fair warning: in its current state, Battletech does seem to have a number of technical issues for many purchasers, including a reported memory-leak and issues with save-game deletion.
That said, the core gameplay and fundamental mechanics of Battletech are solid and fun -- I can definitely see the legacy of Firaxis' XCOM as well as the older MechCommander games, and (most importantly to board-game-geeks like me) a faithfulness to the actual Battletech boardgame gives me an uncomfortable urge to buy old pewter mech miniatures to paint up (and then have collect dust on the shelf).
I have no doubt Hare-Brained Schemes (the developers) will resolve the technical issues in time, and, excitingly, the devs have stated that they would love to launch an "Invasion of the Clans" expansion one day in the future, so I thought that it would be a good idea for all us like-minded mechwarriors have a place to list our Callsigns and organize some MP battles (perhaps even tournaments in the future).
I'll set up a Discord for all interested to join later today, as well. For now, feel free to post your Steam IDs/Battletech Profile Callsigns so that we can match up online for hot, laser-y death!
My Steam IDs and in-game Callsign are both DasaKamov. Hope to meet up with other GB Mechwarriros on the battlefield!
