Hey there everybody,

Thought i'd throw up a wee topic about possible future mechs for MWO. Due to myself playing the previous games and having an interest in Battletech, put together a few mechs I would definitely wish to see introduced on MWO:

Ares: http://www.sarna.net...es_(BattleMech)
Omega: http://www.sarna.net...ga_(BattleMech)
Hellspawn: http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Hellspawn
Nova Cat: http://www.sarna.net...at_(BattleMech)
Hitman: http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Hitman

But this is just my personal preference - what about you?
What old mechs would you like to see re-introduced?

Drop a comment!

I'm probably showing my age here, but I consider all those mechs be rather new (apart from the Hitman).

Anyway, I'd personally like to see all the TRO3039 and 3050 mechs in the game.

None of the mechs you posted are available in the current timeline, and the Ares is a Dark Age mech, which means that it will never ever appear in MWO. I never liked Ares and Omega anyway, because I don't like the idea of mechs having more than 100 tons.

From the mechs available in the current timeline I'd like to see the Clint, Vindicator, Crab, Guillotine, Zeus and Devastator.

I want physical combat and death-from-above introduced. Reintroduce knocking each other over, but make it properly balanced and a bit more difficult to do this time; no more Dragon bowling-balls and Jenners tackling Atlases at 140kph while taking no damage themselves. It's a tall order, I know, but once that happens I would want

Hatchetman
Axman
Black Knight
Charger

The Black Knight is pretty much an energy boat, but in response to the Clan invasion Comstar's "Clan Buster" model BL-9-KNT came equiped with a longsword shaped hatchet. These variants on the hatchet always seemed like a popular modification on these mechs.

The Axman was introduced in 3048 and at our time in the timeline only 1 variant aside from stock exists, so it wouldn't be a viable option. No one would be able to max out the mech trees unless they bought a hero variant, which would be horribly unbalanced against free-to-play users. :D On the other hand, a 65 ton mech swinging on people with a hatchet!

The Charger is probably my favorite mech from Battletech, but I wouldn't have a use for it without close combat. By the point in the timeline where we are at there's something like 5 or 6 variants available to us, plus the Hatamoto-Chi was based off the Charger and even it had a few variants by this point. As you might guess, an 80 ton mech with nothing but 5 small lasers on it made for a popular test bed for new weapons lay outs and technologies. The base mech was junk, but some of the variants were astounding.
If I had one I would take off all of the weapons though. Keep the standard 400 engine for survivability but upgrade it with endo-steel and ferro-fiberous, give it MASC and jump jets, and charge, punch, kick and DFA everything I possibly could. :D

Summoner and Mad Dog.

I got started with battletech off the cartoons, and the Vulture was my favorite back in the day.

Well, I have three lists, one is what is available in this time line, the second will be the Clan Mechs I hope to see in the Invasion and the last are ones I hope will just eventually get added, as we fast forward tot he various conflicts, etc.

Mind you, no Unseen are on this list, because it should be a given, that a redesigned Macross Unseens are desired, just highly unlikely.

1) Available NOW:
Lights: Urbanmech, Firestarter
Mediums: Assassin, Dervish, Vulcan, Enfocer
Heavies: Grasshopper, Lancelot, GRAND FRIGGING DRAGON
Assault: King Crab, Cyclops, Annihilator, Mauler, Thug

2) Clan Invasion:
Lights: MistLynx, Piranha (3051), Commando IIC, Jenner IIC
Mediums: Nova, Great Wyrm, Hunchback IIC
Heavy: Rifleman IIC, Orion IIC, Summoner, Timber Wolf
Assault: Warhammer IIC, Marauder IIC, Kodiak, Warhawk

3) Blue Sky Wish List?
Light: Solitaire, Venom,
Medium: Uziel
Heavy: Bandersnatch,
Assault: Supernova (looked cool in MW3), Pillager

My dream list is the Cyclops, Devastator, Uziel.. and my very, very longtime favorite, which I would pay whatever MC they charged... the Thor/Summoner.


As for the Mad Cat/Timberwolf, Vulture/Mad Dog, Loki/Hellbringer, and Thor/Summoner.. I hope they do their arms right, and not give us the side mounted arms as seen in MW4. Im already disappointed with how stocky the Catapult came out.

Must has!!!!

And if it were up to me, I would love to see the non-canon SLDF era GRF-3N in the role of the Champion. It's my fave version of the ol Grif, even if it lacks JJs!

True. Though I don't have much of an issue with it. Since they'd basically be glorified turrents in this game lol.
