About This Game

AirMech is fast paced Action RTS that can be played like Dota or Starcraft--you can battle on the ground or command from the skies! Practice solo, or jump into coop or even pvp modes. 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3 plus the army you build to fight alongside you. Either command from above, dogfight with other players, or wreck things on the ground in mech mode. Level up ingame similar to Dota style games, build your army as if you were playing an RTS, or anything in between! Team play means every player can play a role while still helping their side win.

--------

In the future, the last survivors of the Great War continue their fight with the ultimate war machine: the AirMech®. Created using lost technology, Pilots have found, salvaged, or stolen AirMechs that they use to protect the weak, or to pillage. Which side do you fight for?

I'm honestly becoming less and less interested in the Tank-spamming echo chamber that has become the mainline balance for PvP. Anything that isn't a tank will be nerfed to uselessness, and only one loadout is made viable.

No wonder PvP is barren nowadays.

I've lost far too much patience and faith to put forth more than that.
SIngle-player stuff may be interesting, but it just isn't fufilling. Fighting brain-dead bots with artificial difficulty modifiers just isn't fun.

Honestly, if there hadn't been a Global chat in this game, i would have been LONG gone.

Airmech, giant robots blowing the ♥♥♥♥ out of each other while commanding other smaller drones to attack the opposing team's fortress. What's there to say. That's not without it's flaws though.

Pros:
Solid Gameplay
Weekly rewards
Double XP and item drop events
Can be played alone or with teammates
Rewards VIP members
A new campaign is emerging
Newer features are being added
Vast amounts of units and customization to get your mech in the best fighting condition
Cake :3

Cons:
REGION LOCKED LOBBIES (Good luck trying to play with that guy from the United States if you are from Australia and need help with Warzone, used to be global before an update implamented Region lock)
Can get really repetitive
Using the old lobby system
Quests can be really diffuclt to complete due to afformentioned region lock.

Despite the flaws, Airmech is a solid Mecha game. For those who still need their daily dose of Macross Missile Massacre, hop into your Helix Mecha and unleash hell.

+Fun gameplay
+Most units and all Airmechs are viable
+You can get premium currency from selling rare drops on the market
+Lots of customization with items, pilots, vanity, etc.

-Almost nobody playing, PvP queue is ridiculous
-No new mechs or pilots for a very long time
-Without membership you will only earn rewards from your first 90 minutes a day
-There is really no tactic towards winning, just spam tanks until you win
-Developers aren't releasing meaningful content

As a player who played over 1500 hours, dont.

This ♥♥♥♥ed up. HARD.

The mods use their mute function to often even if u avoid "chatfilter" once.
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥T. For saying "♥♥♥♥♥er" instead of "♥♥♥♥♥"....

Ive spent 130 USD on this game and the worst spent of my life.

Im done here. They nerfed all ultimates, moved the "locked diamonds" and its getting worse by the day. Mods that are muting like ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t wile ur having a great time with all the other players(looking at @MosesGunn11)

Good bye Carbon, You ♥♥♥♥ed up....

An amazing game for the price of $0.00. Air-Mech Arena is exactly what you'd expect from a game of such a name. You are a pilot of an Air-Mech and must fight other Pilots and their Air-Mechs. To do this you can build an army and charge by building troops or you could even upgrade your own Air-Mech.

Not bad, but certainly not good. Lots of people, but a lot of them suck ♥♥♥. Lots of choices for gameplay, but most people sealclub lower-levels in PvP, such as level 300+ aces against level 10-20 people with a fair sum of stuff, but are ♥♥♥♥ to these "aces". Nice units, but too dynamic and missing a lot of logical designs. The Longhorn looks like a Centurion, which is a pretty old tank, while others look to similar. We need some options to change, idiots. Airmechs are nice, but we should be able to not just be copies of seal-clubbing aces. Graphics are nice, but the new interface killed the game's style, now making you choose characters and having voices, unlike the old days.

Over all, kill yourselves.

I've personally played this game in 2013. As iI come back in 2016, it has much changed. Here is my thougth of the game.


General:
When starting the game you have to finsih 12 mission which can be time consumming. After that you aren't even allowed to play with other players. Only cpus. You have to obtain level 6 to unlock multiplayer. Finding a game is even more of a pain due to the low population. If you like transforming games this is for you. Its a type of moba like league but with its own aspects. The only way to get into a game fast with cpu is having a freind with you.

Should you get it?
Yes, Tell your freinds so you can make it grow.

Pros
Great choices of airmechs
Good custimizations

Cons
Long Tutorial (Not needed)
Grinding needed
After all the grinding to level 6 multiplayer queing takes forever
