    bushwacker no, shadowcat maybe depending on how Clantech implementation is handled.

    nah, you love clan bullshit, admit it.

    and as for lethality I hope mechs are tough but can be taken out or disabled relatively quickly with few skillfully placed shots.


    Sorta like how Tanks work in Men of War as apposed to Company of Heroes.
    Are you shitting me.

    Are you shitting me.

    "You love clan bullshit, admit it."

    No. No sir I do not like green clans and ham.



    Take Battletech, an amazing setting, it's an amazing blend of Sci-fi and feudalism. Where mechwarriors pilot family heirlooms, ancient archaic lost technology. The only reason more can be made is that the facilities that make them are automated. Like, you clan loving faggots don't get it, it was SO COOL being a knight, a lord, a mechwarrior.

    You didn't care about double heat sinks, you didn't give a fuck about ER PULSE bullshit. It didn't exist. You had a piece of shit and it was your FAMILY's mech, it belonged in SERVICE to your empire. You were a knight and it was amazing.


    Then out of nowhere fucking aliens (they thought that the clanners were actually aliens at first because their mechs were so amazing and their fighting styles were so boss) come out of nowhere and turn your machines into lego. Now you get to customize everything and ride on dope spinners. Change your weapons for every battle.


    Fuck that. Where's the soul of your mech, when it was the mech that your great great grandfather once piloted, and if it were to be destroyed you would worse than dead because you couldn't pilot anymore unless someone really loved you or you were just THAT good that you would get a replacement.



    Also, I like the idea of MAKING DUE. Know why Saving Private Ryan was a good movie? They had to make due. Nobody gives a shit about the guys who have all the shiny bits, it's the poor blokes who have the rusted scrap that everyone cheers for.


    Basically I don't want it to be like MW4 which was an ok game, but the light laser didn't do shit all. Medium lasers are supposed to be fucking scary. PPCs and Gauss rifles were near execution tools, with each shot scaring the shit out of even heavy mechs (and assaults in most cases). If you took one Gauss shot to the cockpit you were fucked, end of story. PPCs would tear the arms off of mediums and some heavies. I want to be TERRIFIED when a mech turns at me.

    I want to say "oh shit" when I see an enemy mech pivot it's medium laser at me.

    I want to feel like I am in the middle of a battletech novel.



    AND IF MY MECH GETS A FUCKING UPGRADE I WILL SMASH MY KEYBOARD IN HALF AND EAT MY HAT.

    he has a point, weapons need a serious overhaul in terms of effectiveness.


    and also Omnitech was a predicable evolution in technology, shit would have shown up eventually even without clan interaction. I also like the idea of customization to suite you favored combat style. for instance, I will be mounting AC and LB-Xs on shit like it's going out of style.

    IT'S NOT A GAME IT'S BATTLETECH I AM A LORD WITH LAND.
    I OWN MECHS AND PLANETS.
    I AM A NOBLE KNIGHT.



    If none of you swag bros (read as clanner scum supporters) know what I'm talking about, hunt down some of the novels dealing with the 4th Succession War.

    Best mech fluff ever. EVER.

    Actually I mix my shit up into a slurry.

    Rice, vegetables, meat. Fuck that, dry stew with rice.
    Mashed potatoes? Delicious vegetable train.
    Veggies + shepard's pie? Shepard's pie with DIY extra veggies.

    Obviously some meals you can't just mix it all together into one delicious flavour train, but most you can.

    All the weapons are cool as shit, but there needs to be balance repercussions.

    Like exploding ammunition.



    Nothing like taking a medium laser somewhere but it penetrates your armor and sets off your cache of SRMS. Boom goes the dynamite.

    well since they are taking lore so seriously they will probably have Ammo rack explosions and judging from the concept art of the hunchback cockpit they may have different selectable ammo types.

    Like LB-X cannons can fire HEAP or cluster ammo.

    "implement core battletech rules"


    I really hope they include all of them, it will bring me so much joy watching new pilots throw their light mechs into turns at full speed on concrete, fall over and lose half their armor as their mech grinds along the ground.

    I think this sums up what my reaction would be if I somehow had that shitbox, was in the middle of a fight, and I get auto-ejected from getting hit in that sweet spot.

    There is simply not a "best" mech. It's all preference.

    Edited:

    Although, since you do like playing the most sadisticly shitty tanks in WoT, I highly recommend you check out the Daboku. Disregard anything you read about it further up the page.

    He thought it would be more realistic if they did less damage point blank since the shells take a while to get up to speed.
