    Why is your avatar a tank wearing a tophat and a monocle and not a mad cat?
    Because it is a tank wearing a top hat and monocle. Your argument is pretty invalid.

    Get me a madcat wearing a top hat and we'll see what happens.

    "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 remember playing a game of MegaMek (BattleTech boardgame that runs on the computer) with a couple friends from MechWarrior Living Legends.

    One of the new guys sets all of his pilots to a piloting skill of 8 and gunning rank of 8.

       A rank of "1" is the best. Each further rank adds a +1 to each dice roll, meaning that beyond rank 6 you'll basically never get a successful dice roll)   

    In the first round, both of his Assault mechs (A pair of Mackies) trip on concrete roads and faceplant onto buildings.

    His Wasp scout mech plows straight through a building after tripping on a road, ripping both arms off (and all the weapons).
    His other mech, which was deployed by the water, tripped into the water, and the pilot drowned.

    He tried rushing me with the Wasp, but both legs got blown off by a land mine that I placed at the start of the round.

    I walked my Victor infront of one of his Mackies, at which point he fires all of the weapons at point blank, and misses entirely because his pilots have the IQ of a piece of burnt toast.

    Edited:

    I don't know anything about Mechwarrior.

    What's the best mech I want that one.
    The AS7-D Atlas.

    You know, suppertime, I guarantee that if you inherited my Supernova variant, you would be far from happy with "making due". The only way you COULD make due is by standing in water any time you fire.

    It is true that the best way to make something scary is to have organic looking parts on it. Why else did pilots paint their planes to look like sharks?

    Cause sharks are terrifying in and of themselves? With your logic I could paint a tulip on a Dasher and it should be scary.

    I think that was just for intimidation or style. Not really trying to be organic.

    Probably to raise the whole "YEAH GUYS LET'S FUCKING DO THIS" spirit. Nothing makes you feel more boss than piloting a war machine with warpaint on it.


    I, myself, would be far more afraid of solid black airplanes. That colour on a vehicle is just something that screams "We're gonna kick your ASS and we're gonna LOVE IT."

    I think solid black screams "We're gonna kill you and add +1 to kill count without any emotion." Emotionless kill is terrifying, and what better represents lack of emotion than lack of color.

    The Bushwacker is a much newer 'Mech. The game takes place before production started (and for that matter, before the tech existed to build it).

    From my experience playing the MechWarrior games, the Atlas isn't all that scary if you have a decent medium-sized mech, a partner or two, and some reasonable cover.

    Atlases are pretty much bullet sponges, a lot of heavy mechs are more trouble in combat, but if you're shooting at the big scary looking guy you're not shooting at them.

    That's why I said they're not that great. I'm more worried about a Daishi or a Marauder II than an Atlas.

    Even then, I'd be more afraid of two medium mechs than I would one extremely powerful one.

    Well yeah, they're running on much newer technology than the old Atlas.

    The modern Atlases are much more dangerous, like this one, the AS7-K:
    XL fusion reactor
    1x Gauss Rifle
    2x ER Large Laser
    1x LRM-20
    2x Medium Pulse Laser
    1x Laser antimissile system
    1x CASE

    It doesn't have the offensive firepower of some of the other Inner Sphere Assaults, but it also has maximum armor.

    Hey guys, question here. I fucking love the Owens. It is possibly my favorite IS 'mech ever. However, looking through the wiki, I don't see when it was developed. Does anyone here happen to know? Because I would love it if it was in the timeframe of MWO.

    Also the Champion.
    God I tore so many people apart in that thing.

    I hated MW4 multiplayer. The only good gamemode was objective play on the Sunder Server, where mechs were PureTech - they had to mount only their own side's weapons (ie Mad Cat cannot mount IS AC/20s, Atlas cannot mount Clan ERPPCs). Mechs had to complete objectives (usually destroying objects in bases protected by walls, turrets, and players), so the attackers and defenders couldn't just all take Daishis with 32kph top speeds.

    Everything else boiled down to either "boat LBX20s / HLLs on Annihilators", "poptart in 2gauss 2erppc Wildcats", or "boat machineguns on a Gesu and annihilate everything".

    Damn.

    So it is 5 years away from being developed.

    Well at least the Champion has been developed by then :>
