For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions as there is a chance it has already been answered there.
For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here.
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

MSGO is a F2P Gundam game featuring over-the-shoulder combat and games consisting of 100 players per match! There are tons of suits to choose from, and more are added all the time. You should really give it a shot!
Note: Due to IP restrictions, a VPN is requried to play, but these are free/dirt cheap.
>Currently recommended VPNs (Mileage will vary greatly depending on your location, don't expect ping of under 100ms unless you're very lucky)
WTFast has a 30-day free trial, useful for trying out the game.
Mudfish is dirt cheap and based on bandwidth usage, rather than a flat payment. At most expect to pay for the price of a sandwich per year. Apparently has slightly better performance than WTFast, but as always this can vary greatly depending on your own connection and location.

Make sure you have DirectX9.0c installed (Installing DirectX10 or 11 won't guarantee having 9.0c).
Make sure your Windows isn't running in Test Mode.
Check if any 3rd party software is interfering (NetLimiter 3, antivirus, etc.).
If you have a question, it doesn't help to do a loose search of the archive first.

I realize that TARS was intentionally designed to resemble the monoliths from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but the design still annoys me. Surely there's better methods of locomotion for robots in the near future right? At least it was fun to watch as we are shown the different ways it can unfold and "transform" in some ways.
I liked TARS the most as a character though, I liked his role in the story and I thought he was very well voiced. I liked it that the voice sounded completely human in every way, because that kind of technology is being developed right now (soon we'll be able to chose which celebrity voice we want to read audiobooks to us, and it will flawlessly replicate it for us in real time, imagine that).
I liked TARS as a character because I loved it that there was a robot in a movie, yet the movie itself didn't really dwell on it. It's like, "Yeah there are robots in the future and they help us do stuff, no big deal..." Too much fiction in my opinion follow the trends laid down by the Hal 9000, and I loved it that TARS even made a joke about it.
I get the sense that TARS was actually creating his own humor which suggests that he actually had consciousness and self-awareness. I love it that there's a movie with a robot conscious entity that doesn't go around killing people, that is (apparently) bound by the three laws and seems to be okay with it. TARS was like a living, breathing character right there with all of the other human cast, and I want to see more robot characters like that in fiction.
