But, anyway after seeing the gameplay of Hawken I thought to myself that those mechs kind of match the description of protomechs. Obviously they don't match the canon ProtoMechs at all, but I have an easier time imagining the Hawken mechs running about with full sized battlemechs than the silly looking Minotaur, Harpy or Basilisk etc.
Of coursethe timeline means we won't be seeing protomechs anytime soon.
I'm not going to argue the usefulness of protomechs (I think the idea is sound but the execution is lacking). However I am interested in whether people would accept the Hawken mechs as fulfilling the description of Protomechs
