I want them unseen or reseen, perferably unseen but just to be able to be so mobile on the battlefied would be awesome. Gimme, gimme, gimme... :)

i wouldn't count on it. i would personally prefer pure mech battles, or land vehicles. copters at most.

(anything other than mechs being completely AI but called in)

either way, i don't count on it.

They won't come out at launch,but they may come out down the road per the devs discretion. if I were you I would hope for them, within the year,but not not anytime soon.

Love the Unseen like alot of the rest but the LAMs are one thing that should of never even been put into Battletech let alone transfer over to this game.

Hopefully one day they can put in Aerospace and Vehicles, but leave the LAMs where they belong. Dead and buried.

Ohhh damn I thought the OP was referring to hovercraft, then I looked at the websites he posted. I don't see a chance in hell those ever making it here. I would just go to STEAM and download Transformers:War for Cybertron to wet your whistle for that sort of thing.

Nope, they would make scouts obsolete, and the maps probably aren't gonna be big enough to do them justice.

Very unlikely. Maybe in some distant future when they expand the game to some currently unfathomable depths.

Hate the LAMs. Will always hate those things. If those things ever show up in MWO, it will be a disaster.

I loved Robotech / Macross sagas... but... this is NOT Robotech / Macross ... this is Mechwarrior, imho mixing things would be a complete disaster.

But...that would be perfect Canon!...They're pretty much a disaster in the universe as well, fielded extremely rarely, and even then usually locked into mech mode because flight mode was too easy to get locked into with only minor damage.

the LAM's were buggy as a humid day in the swamp. While, awesome canon and lore, they would be too unstable or worse, IF they did them right. and that is a justifiable way to do it. Have them, but have them as unreliable as a screen door on a submarine at keepin the water out. honestly, i would not count them in, or not at launch at any rate.

They were the most awful thing ever. Nothing like that would ever fly. And they look ridiculous. And they suck.

They were the pimples of BattleTech's puberty. Much like the zits of yesteryear, a big boy IP has to really give up on taking care of itself to bring them back.

Everyone gets all butthurt but I love those mechs mostly because of the Macross thing. They would have much too big an advantage in MWO though.

NO. Even if there wasn't a copyright issue, still, NO. Let's not turn this game into a game where everyone is flying around the battlefield and not even bothering to fight on the ground. This is MechWarrior not Ace Combat. If you want to fly go get that game instead. It actually made it to Angryjoe's top 10 list for 2011 so it must be pretty good. Go play that if you want to fly. Don't bring it here.

NO.

right on... The LAM's should never have been introduced to the BT side of the house... But I suppose Jorden W. had some license aggreements back then and wanted to use as much as possible, who knows... Point is they've been mixed, but at least NOT in the computer and novel media of Battletech, the LAM's only appeared in the TT media... though I could be mistaken, please correct me if so...
