New Map and Matchmaking System for MechWarrior
MechWarrior Online has received a new update, containing a brand new map - called Alpine Peaks - featuring large open areas with little cover, and mountainous vantage points, making it a sniper's dream. Along with the map also comes a new medium-class Mech, the Trebuchet, specialising in the long range combat like the Alpine Peaks map.
There has also been a major reworking of the matchmaking system, which will allow players to find opponents based on skill, rather than just the weight class of their Mech. It's still being fine-tuned, much like any new system would be, but the developers seem to be quite open about what's been changed, and how they are working to make it better.
