I'm still playing through this mission, but I wanted to drop a quick post to say how much I love the atmosphere in this mission. I really feel like I've landed in a beautful wooded area. Too bad it's filled with maniacal rebels!
By the way, I'm not sure if this is intended or not, but during the opening cutscene (before I had control of my mechs) my team was apparently attacked by a couple of ShaYus. I heard Ghost say "Reporting enemy forces reduced," and Psycho said one of his kill lines.
When I received control of my force, there were 2 smoking ShaYu chassis laying on the ground, and Rooster's Timber Wolf had taken some damage. No biggy, but perhaps this was not actually intended to happen this way?
It seems that a lot of your players are holding back their experiences and feedback. I intend to break that mold!
I encountered something that may warrant some attention in Mission 5. I happened to complete primary objectives 1 - 6 before objective 7, eliminate all enemy units. As soon as I completed those objectives, the customary ending cinematic fired, showing me the destruction of what remained of the White Rock HQ. This would seem to suggest that the mission is over at this point, but after the cinematic ends, I'm returned back to the misison.
I'm guessing that you actually had intended for cinematic to play after all 7 primary objectives were completed (or perhaps you had intended the eliminate all enemy units objective to be a secondary objective). At any rate, just doing my duty and reporting these things as I encounter them.
