Here is a follow up poll for Heavy Battlemechs - I think I know which one is going to run away with this one. Keep in mind the Grasshopper has JJ's and more varied load outs.

Grasshopper.

Definitely.

75 ton Energy boat is going to get boring fairly quickly.

It may wind up working out like the Banshee - but I would rather play a more diverse loadout.
That and I want another Head mounted missile rack. :D

Man I really want a Black Knight but if the Grasshopper has JJ's that is a toughy, worth noting that neither have ballistics but at least the Grasshopper has missiles...

Voting the Grasshopper for the same reasons I voted the Zeus: feels like a more iconic mech between the two choices given, and allows for a bit more variety in weapon loadouts.

Standard loadouts:

Grasshopper GHR-5H: 70 tons, LL (CT), ML (LT), ML (RT), ML(LA), ML(RA), LRM5 (H), 280 std engine (64.8 kph), 4 JJ, 22 std heatsinks, Std. Internals, Std. Armor

Black Knight BL-6-KNT: 75 tons, PPC (RA), LL (LT), LL(RT), ML(LA), ML(LT), ML(RT), ML(RA), SL(H), BAP(CT), 300 Std engine (64.8 kph), 20 std. heatsinks, Endo Steel internal, Std armor.


This is a real tough decision. I'm waiting for a heavy with ECM. The GHR-7K has it, but isn't supposed to be introduced until 3068.

The only Knights with ECM are Dark Age (3081+) era. Also, most of the custom Knights have melee weapons, which are far from being introduced in MWO.

Think I'll go with a Grasshopper, and hope they up max engine to 350 or higher. 70 ton jumping laser mech going near 90 kph? Yes, please!

Good lord I love the Grasshopper in 3025 TT. (Probably one of if not the best mechs for that era.)

I'm sure the Black knight's going to have more appeal given its previous apperances in MW games, but I can't wait for the Grasshopper to finally make its appearance in this game.

70 ton jumping laser boat with AMS or 75 ton laser boat with BAP? Coincidentally, both have head mounted hardpoints.

Since ComStar isn't a thing in this game, I'll go with Grasshopper. It also didn't get much love in the previous MW/MechCommander games so it would be nice to see it.
