Wow… didn't know this was a thing.

    Was a long time fan of Chromehounds back in the day and was really sad to see it disappear off the market like it did.

    Never bothered to look online due to not having an even remotely decent PC at the time and today I was just looking back on some old games for craps and giggles and I saw a post on YouTube where someone mentioned “M.A.V.” on Steam.

    Well I looked on Steam and saw nothing so I googled it and eventually found myself here.

    Was happily surprised to see this. Was even happier to see a lot of semi-recent posts.

    Y’all should advertise yourselves more holy crap. If I would have know this was a thing I would have looked at this weeks ago when I got my computer put together.

    Really interested on what I’ll find here over time.

    On a side note, I am wondering if the game supports Xbox Controller support or if it’s completely Keyboard and Mouse based.

    Okay, thank you for that. I thought I saw that but I was more focused on playing the game it was kinda off to the side in my mind.

    After about ten minutes of tinkering I managed to get it to where I wanted I think.

    Welcome to the M.A.V. community Major! There are a fair amount of us Chromehounds veterans in the community who felt just like you did when we found this game. Check out the thread below to find how to hang with the community even if you can’t join in the actual multiplayer shenanigans yet.

    Multiplayer Information for Beta Members

    There is information for both a Teamspeak and a Discord there; the Teamspeak sees more use during actual play and during the scheduled events like the Sunday Funday, while the Discord kind of functions like a social hangout for us with each other the rest of the time. We’d love to see you in there sometime!

    Glad to have you around!

    I went ahead and moved this thread to the ‘Introductions’ section, as it seems more fitting.

    As for advertising the game more, I am trying!

    So far it’s been: You want a booth at a convention, that will be $5,000 please. Oh you want me to stream your game, that will be $5,000 please. Oh you want a youtube video, that will be $5,000. Oh you want me to reply to your email, try again when you have 1 million players.

    But it’s starting to work more. You found it, right? 😉

    This sort of stuff is why we’re making such an effort to make our own content for M.A.V. Hopefully if enough of us start producing M.A.V. content for our YouTube channels we can make up for it xD

    I’m on a good 70 Oneshots (my weekly MAV series), plus a bunch of Aftershots and some recorded streams and multiplayer battles.

    Glad to see you, though. Always nice to see someone new. I’ve been away from the Multiplayer scene so long, I barely recognize anyone.

    Huh… I guess it doesn’t help when people are greedy bastards asking so much for just showing off a game.

    Stinks really. Aside from a few personal quirks with the game if feels like Chromehounds (at least from what I can gather from the Demo aspect).

    One can dream that MAV will hit the mark it deserves.

    Also I am adding some funds to my paypal for no particular reason or anything… no need to be suspicious of anything…
