Re: New MechWarrior Game?
sorry dude but Blacknight's storyline was absurd

Yeah, I'm gonna have to go with Roanoke here.

I'm pissed we're getting Reseen versions of the old standbys, though...

LosTech = anything better than regular laser, Autocannon, or missile.

Don't forget the Urbie! if only for laughs. (For those who don't know, the Urbanmech is regarded as the absolute worst 'Mech in existence.)

Fine, Sheesh.  I'll save my mocks for the Jagermech ;).

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
So this has no Clans, no LosTech (whatever that is), no armor like Elemental or Longinus suits, and no OmniMechs (whatever those are)?  Just lots of Inner Sphere internecine warfare fought by giant 40-100 ton deathrobots?

Most front-line Clan 'mechs are Omnis. An OmniMech is just a 'Mech that uses pod-mounted weapons systems; they can be swapped out and reconfigured in the field.
Thanks.  Still don't know what LosTech is though.  It would also be nice if someone could tell me what the notable Mechs of this era are.
LosTech are the experimental X-weapons like the X-Pulse Lasers which had short ranges and long reload times of its type but were extremely powerful.

And no Omnimechs which would means no Mad Cats?
**** that. The Timber Wolf / Mad Cat is far too iconic to be wiped right off the gaming franchise.

The Rifleman, Warhammer, and Marauder is nice just because of their appearance (And the fact they're used in Macross as well :P) but I'd rater take the Timber Wolf or any of its upgrades over any of them.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Actually, even Gauss rifles were LosTech at one point. So were ER PPCs, regular pulse lasers, all sorts of stuff.

It's not that the Mad Cat/Timber Wolf has been wiped out, it's just that in this time period it hasn't arrived yet.

Well, if this game ends up being moddable, it should show up at some point. :P

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
If they can pull of the plans they have now, sooner or later it will show up.
One thing to remember about the Mad Cat is that, at the time it was introduced into the BT universe, it was designed to literally wipe the floor with any of the 3020 designs. Introducing it now would remove a great deal of the 'Mechs awesomeness.

I don't really care if it couldn't use all the fancy trinkets that made it the rape-Mech of its time, I love the asthetics of it.

Well, then the Marauder or Catapult would be the Mech for you.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
It was never as good as the Stormcrow on a per-ton basis.

Yeah, I went there! (I've heard a lot of very convincing arguments as to why the Stormcrow/Ryoken is the best per-ton/per-BV Omni out there.)

Which ignores, of course, the Omni's chief ability to be reconfigured... :P

Just the Marauder, canopy + legs + missile racks don't cut it for me.
The Marauder Mk. II on that MW4 Mech addon was a beauty. :D

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
I believe you're referring to the Mad Cat Mk II. Or were you referring to this monster? Unless some Fans made an addon, since at the time of MW4's release the Marauder was still Unseen.

Man, I hated the Mad Cat Mk II's weapon placements in MW4.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
No, I'm not referring to the Mad Cat Mk. II, there's an addon for MW4 that adds about 30+ mechs, the Marauder and Marauder Mk. II are two of them.
Though the Mad Cat Mk. II is the most appealing design of all in my book.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Huh. I'll be sure to look for it once they get around to put MW4 up for download.
