Eh, I don’t think anyone is calling people out as HG supporters, but some of the ‘infringements’ are silly, like the Atlas, which as far as I know has only ever been a Battletech design.

There was a small hick-up at the steam page of the game. It showed that the release date was April 2018 and you got a pre-order bonus being an alternative Shadow Hawk skin (backers get it for free). One of the developers admitted it was a leak. Right now, the page has been changed. But hey, we got a rough estimate out of it.  ;)

Backer email just came through confirming April as the release month. No specific date though.

Have they taken a publishing deal with paradox or are they just using their forum space for some reason?

Like Meph already said, April is when the game will release. Read more about it in the new Kickstarter update. At the same time, have a new trailer as well. Not only that, but you can pre-order the game as well on Steam. There are two packages: regular edition and digital deluxe edition. In the case of the latter, you also get the soundtrack, artbook, an exclusive avatar and exclusive wallpapers. If you pre-order, both editions also get you an exclusive Shadow Hawk skin.

Kickstarter Backers, the exclusive Shadow Hawk skin will be included in your game once you receive your game key. Also, check out your Backerkit account. You will find the third exclusive novella waiting for you there.

And as indicated in one of my posts before, the new official forums are the ones located at the Paradox hub. Look for them here. Backers, once again, in your Backerkit account, you'll find codes for avatars, titles and exclusive access to the Valhalla subsection (if you backed a level that included such access).

Have they taken a publishing deal with paradox or are they just using their forum space for some reason?

Paradox is indeed the official publisher for the game, providing testing support, marketing aid and as you indicated, forum space.

Paradox had their first livestream of BattleTech yesterday. No campaign gameplay, but a more general overview of certain aspects of BattleTech and the Skirmish mode. You can view it here. Transcript below.

There will be another official Paradox Stream today, at 9am PDT (18:00 CET). You'll be able to watch it here. A Youtube version will be made available later, probably tomorrow.

The Paradox stream will show more about the campaign / simulation part of the game. There will be no story spoilers.

There will be two other streams. The first is by a streamer called CohhCarnage and it should take place at 10am PDT (19:00 CET). The second is by HyperRPG and should start at 3pm PDT (01:00 CET on Friday).

EDIT: The other streams (the ones hosted not by Paradox and Hyperrpg) might contain story spoilers though! Beware!

Appreciate the heads up - tuned in and liked what I saw. The Mech lab looks pretty similar to MWO, but with a bit more restrictions to keep the mechs in line with what they were originally designed to be (MG no longer count as ballistic, so you can't replace all the MG slots with ACs anymore for example).

Wasn't a big fan hearing that everyone starts out with a default group of mercs (I like my team random!) but you're not locked into them and the re looks to be some good contract variety, so hopefully that will keep things interesting!
