So.
Few time I've heard on this forum how amazing will be this MWO comparing to bad and expensive WOT.
So I visited a website.... First think they just asked me to PAY for guarantee of being part of beta test. Not even main game.
As I remember I was playing Beta for WOT for nearly year. Nobody asked me for dime.
They are asking me to pay for guarantee of being part of beta without even giving me a chance to check if this game is worth to play.

And finally... Guys. Please. Stop compare Tanks and Mechs. It IS completely different experience IMHO.

ppl who compare 2 different games like WoT and MWO are just as bad as those who compare CoD and BF

Bottom line: No one cares whats better, it's you opinion.... +1 from me

Those "Founders"-preorder packages or whatever they are called include premium mechs and all that stuff. Can't remember the exact price anymore, but something similar to a WoT premium account should cost around the same amount of money, if I recall correctly.
Still it is quite obvious that they are exploiting the hype around this game (there seems to be an amazingly huge amount of Battletech fans out there) to the max...
So, generally speaking: stop all this whining about how MWO is better and not as P2W as WoT (which alone is simply "lol"). If there is a problem, then it's inherent in the F2P system in general.

plus the founders get into the closed beta not open as off yet.
see it as a bonus for putting some cash into the game early on XD

I was just suspended on MWO Forum because I've asked why I should pay for beta test and said that there are games which have free beta.
I was suspended for non constructive questioning and abusing members of community after 15-20 users called me moron, muppet, stupid etc.

Ufff. Good thing I didn't pay any money for this cat in the hat with bunch of overreacting players :)

Lets see. You pay a loot of cash to have a chance to even get in beta? Seems pretty lame to me. It would be the best to wait for some gaming site to give away free beta codes (and those are usualy free).

Usually statements like this only tell half of the story and tend to leave out the poor victims attitude shown in the corresponding forum. No offense meant.

None taken. Usually I am avoiding such statements but I noticed that treating any let's say opposite opinon on this forum is finished by silencing person asking. I wanted to make sure that this community is rotten from the start. IMHO it is.

Buying that pre-order pack (Similar of what WoT had before launch) guarantee you access to _Closed_Beta_. You can get in (as I did) without buying pre-order but it's not guaranteed as it is not with ANY closed beta. For example I still got no invite to WoWP despite I applied for that when it was announced.

Anyway you don't pay for beta access but with purchasing the pre-order pack which gives you goodies in the final game you also get to get into closed beta. I would hazard a guess that open beta is coming at some point and then everyone can get in.

Thank you. This is the answer I didn't received till now. And all I was trying to say was that I wouldn't pay for game or "goodies" before having a chance to see and play the game.
For such statement I was banned.

Anyway. It seems that problem solved with this answer. there is no difference between WoT and MWO regarding paying or no paying.

Can I close this thread now?

Considering the beta of any software is the unproven, buggy version, and that you are in essence not really playing, but being used for testing of the said software, it's you who should be payed to play it, not you who should pay to do the testing for them...

After all, would you pay for a motor car that is only half finished?

If the motor car look like to an exciting Caterham, yes, i will give a few euros to the manufactures in order to help to finish his car.

Anyway, IMHO Founder's packs are more like an investment than anything else. You give your support to this project, and you have some goodies in return.

In addition, buying a founder pack immediatly grant access to closed beta, but open beta incoming, so nobody i mandatory to buy anything to play - you just have to wait a little more.

Ok.

Everything is clear now. Please close this thread if possible before we will start another unnecessary discussion.

Why do I get a strange sense of where I have seen this from before somewhere? I remember the name of the company started on "W".

If people think that WoT is Horrible and Pay2Win, than it's far from first, last nor only game that is like that. I guess all games that is about to get released or are in "infinete open beta" are like WoT.
