Ever since I popped open the first boxed set of battle droids(quickly renamed mech warrior) I've loved the archer. Ya gotta love 40 lrm's.....I'm hoping to see my archer in game but I haven't had time to troll the boards so any word on if it's in the game yet?

Redesigned it should be fine, as with the rest of the Unseen.

Archer, Marauder, BattleMaster... <_<

edit: They haven't announced any "reseen" mechs, right?

The archer was actually the one Reseen design that seemed the least offensive to me. It seems to retain the rough shape and girth as the original. That said, I feel the PGI artist is a lot better than the Project Phoenix guys (Not to dis or anything, they also worked hard), so I think he/she could improve on the reseen a lot.

Archer is that like the Catapults short-bus cousin?
Seriously, everyone likes the unseen mechs, few like the reseen mechs. The unseen will not be in the game.

IMO archer kicks the crap out of the catapult. Such a solid mech. it is THE missle boat of missle boats. Even has enough armor to slug it out inside of lrm range if you got desperate enough.

Of all the unseen its the one i miss the most.

Archer was the first missile mech, cata came later. It has nicer variants than the cat imo. Archer over cata, always, cata looks more like a chicken with a jet pack. Good for roasting.

Love the Archer on the TT. Heavy mech of choice.
Would be one very happy pilot if the ride becomes available.
Until then there is the Catapult and Trebuchet to play with.

Hey considering what they've done with the Stalker and Cataphract I would love to see their take on the reseen Project Phoenix mechs. Plus then we can get them in the game :D.
