Mechwarrior Online Summary
has completed a global server expansion for MechWarrior Online, claiming that lag for players "has been reduced in some areas by more than 75% with the average ping time reduced by 50%." Baically, if you're outside North America, playing the game should be a little less head-bangingly frustrating now.
New servers in the Oceania region will go up next month, so if you're from that corner of the world you've still got a little bit longer to wait. The game's inching towards a level playing field, though, which is good news.
Fans can now also purchase one of several offered packages in return for XP bumps, limited edition forum badges and their own choice of Mech.
Piranha Games' free-to-play MechWarrior Online is now officially live as the beta period ends. A launch patch has been set loose with an invitational tournament dated September 26th.

Piranha Games has announced that the promised 12 vs. 12 match combat is now live for MechWarrior Online, allowing for massive battles between mechs.
