Though I gotta say their funding/goals seem a little off. I mean you/me/we/us/I don't actually get a single player campaign until they hit 1 million, just more stuff added to the skirmish mode they are already funding... I dunno feels funny to me for some reason

Interesting goals, at least HBS covered some stuff already. Shame I can't get a big Clan Wolf banner and hat :p

Average of $93 pledged, impressive growth.

The rate at which this started, Stage 2 should get reached easily, maybe even within the first 24 hours.  Stage 3 is a real possibility.  Stage 4...  who knows?

400k goal has been knocked out

 

 

 

 
$250,000 - Combined Arms: We'll add a healthy roster of non-'Mech AI opponents to the Base Skirmish Game including tanks, hovercraft, support vehicles and more. But be careful - even the lightest of combat vehicles can still wreck your 'Mechs under the right conditions. 
$400,000 - Expanded Mission Objectives: We'll add a variety of mission types to the Base Skirmish Game including Escort, Capture, Defend, and more.

Excellent. The world has been in dire need of a good mech game for a while.
I don't know why the mech genre mostly died like it did, but this is an excellent way to restart a revitalization.

When in doubt, blame the elves.

 

I have always hated the word "censorship", I prefer seeing it as just removing content that isn't suitable or is considered offensive

Kind of stunned both $10k backer slots have been taken already.  I guess it was decently advertised before the campaign started, but...wow.

 

Probably had specific people lined up for those beforehand?

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

Tempted by the jacket, but suspect it'll be some low grade clothing. I guess I'll kick in for the Noble. I like keychains.

Yeah, the higher tiers are tempting, but I know it would just end up being stuff I'd stick in a drawer/closet, as I simply don't have any space to display it.  If there was a physical copy somewhere in there I might be more tempted, just because I like having physical copies of games I care about.

I hope they put a higher all digital tier

 

PS almost 650k

 

PPS I also wanted to include this tidbit

 

Which ’Mechs will be in the game?
BATTLETECH is in pre-production, so many decisions, like the final 'Mech roster, are not yet determined. But here are the 'Mechs we're currently planning to include:
 
LIGHT: Locust, Commando, Spider, Firestarter, Jenner, Panther, Raven, Urbanmech
 
MEDIUM: Cicada, Blackjack, Vindicator, Centurion, Enforcer, Hunchback, Trebuchet, Griffin, Kintaro, Shadowhawk, Wolverine
 
HEAVY: Dragon, Quickdraw, Catapult, JagerMech, Thunderbolt, Cataphract, Grasshopper, Orion
 
ASSAULT: Awesome, Victor, Zeus, BattleMaster, Stalker, Highlander, Banshee, King Crab, Atlas
 
 
Will “The Unseen” ‘Mechs be in your game?
We’re excited by the great redesigns Piranha and Catalyst have done for some those “imperially entangled” ‘Mechs but we’re not committing to them right now. However, it’s a long time until we ship, so cross your fingers!

So far I'm just in at the $25 minimum to get the game tier.  I can always change my mind later and adjust (or cancel) my pledge.  I'm not usually keen on physical rewards, but dat jacket tho.  Still, I can't justify dropping $275 on a game, so I better just put it out of my mind.

 

...

 

Dat jacket tho.

Can any international backers for Shadowrun Hong Kong who bought physical tiers tell me how much approximate shipping was charged? I understand why they don't provide fixed shipping costs in Kickstarter itself but I don't want to be stung for $50+ shipping if it comes to that.

Awesome that they can use the MWO models. They look good and it saves them a lot time and money which can be spend on other areas instead.
