Also I'm hearing there's some kind of damage scattering in, making this less the magic snipe the head/leg game and more like the tabletop, but I'm guessing anyone here in closed beta cannot confirm or deny.

A source told me awhile ago that ACs do not have splash damage, only lasers and probably missiles. I'll verify it whenever he's on.

Ho, ho, ho, to the bottle I go
to heal my heart and drown my woe!
Rain may fall and wind may blow,
and many miles be still to go,
but under a tall tree I will lie!

Don't forget there's also scouting the Steiner way with a lance of Atlases.

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Force recon would be 3 mediums and a heavy, the Steiner is more like Assault Recon

I lol'd.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

They seem to be going down the FASA starter kit game box I have somewhere, so I expect to see Banshee, Whitworth, Assassin, Vindicator, Grasshopper, Panther, Zeus, Clint, Cyclops, and Hermes II before others.

The box set has had the same 'Mechs in it for years, and I'd noticed the pattern as well.  It's honestly a pretty solid line-up, all things considered.

I think I've seen the Panther and Hermes II in MW4 MekTek, but yeah the rest are completely new to me.

IIRC the Zeus was in M4 Mercs and the Cyclops in MC2, but yeah, most of them haven't been in a videogame to my knowledge. Which is a shame since many of them are storied designs; the destruction of Clan Smoke Jaguar's homeworld was commanded from a Cyclops, a huge number of famous members of House Kurita have driven Panthers, and soforth.

I also forgot the Enforcer and the Quickdraw.

Overall they'll put a good number of variants and a good mix of weight classes, weapons, and movement abilities into the game.

Most of the mechs I really like either are unseen or not from this era. :(

I recognize a lot of these from MW2 Mercs actually. There were a ton of mechs in that one.

Most of them are genuine FASA Designs that pre-dated the Videogames a lot.
They are designed for Tin, not for Direct X ;)

All of them are in the 3024 technical Readout, the first collection of new Mechs for the Boardgame.
The Panther is a common Mech in the Forces of House Kurita, the Vindicator a common Mech in the forces of House Liao. The Zeus is a Assault Mech of House Steiner.
If Mechwarrior Online wants to offer some faction specific Mechs those three would be a logical choice.

Like the Enforcer for House Davion or the Trebuchet for House Marik.

I broke out my boardgame earlier and...

Well let's just say I'm hoping the grouping controls for weapons are really good and easy to use, because I'd forgotten how crappy most of these 3025ers were at dissipating heat.
