Edit: So even though by 3049 these technologies had been rediscovered, they were still very rare. And the mech designs like the Thug, which had always used them were even rarer in the armies of the Houses. What we really need is a ComStar faction in preparation for Tukkayid after the Clans come.
By this logic, which I agree with, no lvl 2 should be in the game. At 3049 LVL 2 tech is not accessible or manufactured enough to be an option, even as inconsistently as it is (Whoops nda).
And by the logic of "Theres no point to put in x mech because x mech is a mech and mech y does the same thing." then no mech at all should be in the game - it should be 4 mechs, 1 assault, 1 heavy, etc. That's stupid. Quit trying to rationalize one mech over the other because if you know inner sphere designs well enough, you'll see they all are similar and that doesn't matter, in weapons or role.

There is no such thing as "crowd wisdom".
I like your list (except for the Mauler, which I think is far-fetched) but you forgot two other strong runners: Banshee and Charger. I know, I know, they are underarmed (in their primary variants) but so is the Dragon, and it made it to the game anyway.

The Ciclops was in MW2Mercs.
Off course it matters! The hardpoint system really makes the mechs different. Look at the variants: an Awesome is VERY different from an Atlas, for instance.
About the pool, I voted for the Cyclops, because I think it is the most likely. But apart from it's speed, the Cyclops isn't much different from an Atlas in hardpoints. So, I hope the next mech will be the Victor - a jumping, more mobile mech, with possible lots of ballistic hardpoints.
The Highlander is great, but it's very rare at this moment (3049), so it should wait a little.
Talking about crowd wisdom...

Grand titan won't exist for a few years, and the hatamoto-chi is pretty similair to the Awesome.

Ok, I know this may well be flame bait, but why does the Urbanmech seem to have such a fan club? It's slower (32.4km/h = 20mph) than my grandmother drives and has no long range weaponry. What's more, at 30 tonnes, It's just going to get squashed as soon as it comes against any real fire-power. I mean, it may have a lot of armour/tonne but that will not make a difference because of the pummelling it will get because it gets outrun by an Atlas.

The UrbanMech is useless, specially in MWO. Speed is the only chance of lighter mechs but an UrbanMech can be outmaneuvered by an Atlas!

Plenty of 'mechs already in the game can mount gauss, even dual gauss. Catapult K-2 and Jagermech, to name two. Sure, they don't have gauss on their stock variants, but ballistic hardpoints + critical space = whatever you can fit. I'm daydreaming about a King Crab with dual gauss rifles in the arms.
