Heya Taerk, Its good to see you again. Its been a long time my friend, I hope all is well with you and your family.
In my opinion I don't think you'd have much fun playing Hawken in its current situation. The playerbase is down to a few hundred concurrent players a day and the number of players in your skill level is pretty much non existent. If you did find yourself in a game, I'm sure the other players would just rage and flame you with cheating and hackusations in chat. I'd bet that you'd even get some of the regulars to raise their eyebrows and question what was happening. I'm sure they'd easily conclude you are someone smurfing for fun and playing a prank, because the username is completely unfamiliar to them. It would be funny to witness the bees getting all riled up and the resulting foxhunt though I must admit.
And even worse the new update that is supposed to contain what the console version has is going to cause quite a stir, I'm not convinced the PC crowd is going to agree with it. I predict a riot, but thats my own opinion on the subject. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Either way, there have been some database errors and many players have reported missing items and such, and even unusable mechs that cannot be played. I'd say check your account and create a ticket if you have a problem, but it doesn't seem like anyone that has created a ticket has gotten any response in months or their problem actually fixed, so it just seems kinda pointless to recommend it at this time. They say that the unuseable mechs issue will be fixed by adding some code to check it in the next patch but that still doesn't solve the problem of players missing items or MC/HC.
