Am I the only one here who does not give a dang about the canon mechs and wishes Mechwarrior devs had the balls to add some of their own to the myriad?

I doubt they can afford something like that when they're already in the red in term of public trust.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

I think what irks most people is the fact that they've started a preorder for Clan-Mechs although they still don't know how to balance them out

They've said since the start they intend to make Clan weapons different, rather than the statistically amazing monstrosities they are in tabletop. Literally since the beginning when people asked that before the game even exited alpha.

I don't know where you've been.

I've joined the game only two months ago, but that's what I've read among other things on the forums. The fact that PGI plan to balance Clan Tech by nerfing does not sit well with some players. It's impossible to please everyone, of course. But Clan balancing is only one issue. The bigger ones are that Clans are already announced for a fixed date (17 June 2014), but there is still not much to see of CW, for instance.

You know what?  We already get games stacked 10v12 against because the matchmaker derps... why do they fear specialized queuing so much?  I would love to drop in a 10v12 Clan vs IS match.  That would be frakking awesome.  Either fight the good, yet unwinnable fight, or claim great honor on the field.  It's not like doomsday weapons absolutely must be nerfed to make them acceptable.  Make them rare, make people fight for them via trials and possible salvage.  If you dump them into the current game without any new mechanics, the only way to handle it is tweaking.

They've talked about a lot of features they intend to implement.

I don't trust a damned thing the MWO devs say. Their actions are all that matter at this point.

Sounds good in theory. But sooner or later the rare stops being rare as more and more people get them.

Now personally I wouldn't mind it at all if hte devs experimented and whatever they wanted. I never took the MW universe as a sacred cow anyway, given that it was initially nothing more than a bunch of things blatantly stolen from other IP's and given it's own name. Granted, over the years it evolved into having it's own identity, but at least for me, it wasn't a "strong" universe.

Am I the only one here who does not give a dang about the canon mechs and wishes Mechwarrior devs had the balls to add some of their own to the myriad?

I think I speak for everyone here when I say that, based on past results, I would very much not like the devs to grow some balls.  There becomes a point where even dedication and determination will not overcome incompetence.  PGI passed that around the time ghost heat started.

I disagree, if only because their concept artist and modelers are absolutely great at their job.

Besides, there are hundreds of mechs in BT universe, of almost every possible shape and size. Why invent new ones? OK, MW4:Mercs guys did so, and their additions were pretty neat, but they weren't anything stellar, either, and got a bit drowned in the sea of canon designs they also added.
However, I certainly wouldn't be against incorporating lesser known designs or even giving new visuals to old, neglected "unseen" mechs. That's the best place to be creative about mech design, since they actually have to differ from the original design as much as possible while maintaining it's "spirit".

But then all the grognards who can't get over the fact that the Unseen are no longer the only 'Mechs around would complain.

And we can't have complaining in MWO, now, you hear.

I'd like to complain about this complaining. I think that complaining about complaints is a ridiculous complaint and complaining shouldn't be complained about. :P

In other news, I'm going back to MW4 Mercs. Dakkannihilator, anyone? :P
In the arena of logic, I fight unarmed.

It only goes to show that good games are made by people who want to play, not by someone who seeks to make money.

Get out. They were often quite close, but not direct save one or two.
