Guys, remember, I'm pretty sure there will only be 12-20 mechs at launch and they'll likely be from the 3025 era.

Q. What year is MechWarrior® Online™ taking place?

A. MechWarrior® Online™ is running an offset timeline of the BattleTech® Universe. As of this writing it is 2011 and the year is 3048 within the game. In 2012, when the game is launched, it will be 3049.

so the mechs and weapons will have to be that era on launch

Right, sorry - I just meant to say I don't think you should expect (favorite mech) to necessarily be in the game, since they seem like they're focusing on a relatively small core group for now. (The Hollander, for instance, is I think ~3055-3060?)

well then, no Uziel for me ( which is a ~mid '60s design, iirc)  :(

but for me, as loyal follower of the House Davion, it doesn't matter in which mech i stomp others into the ground  :P

The Hollander is in the Technical Readout 3055 ;-)

Flufftext says it was build on Coventry to counter the Jade Falcons. So it would be build between 3050 and 3055.

As long as the Thunderbolt is there no other mech matters.

Raven was first used in the 4th Succession War in 3028, so we might get our wish - plus the Raven is one of the iconic scout mechs.

I'll make the Flea feared again.
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

It took me ages and cost me a leg, but I managed to take down an Awesome with dual pulse lasers and a clan small laser while in a Flea. On my own.

Yes!

To be completely honest, I'm not all that fond of what they did with its design though.

If there were a higher quality version of the Cicada than this one, I'd like it a lot more than the Raven.  The Raven is still pretty down there on my list of favorite 'Mechs, though.  Entirely too specialized for me to use it often.

Cool video, very pretty. TBH I'm probably more excited for HAWKEN though.
