This is a passage from the Commando introduction post. I wonder if we should take this litterally, as in "lasers do damage-over-time" for a brief burst like a sweeping beam instead of instantaneous point-damage like what we saw in Mechwarrior 4 and prior releases...
I would hope so, this is if its going off the novels and fan fiction's way of dealing with lasers where lasers basically caused things to melt very quickly. Armor would turn into this slag like material and sort of 'ooze' off of a mech, was all pretty cool to read. Heck, look at the old BT show that they had, even then the lasers did a bit of damage over time as.

It should be something new. The Devs are stepping back and saying "There was something wrong with every game" and they are probably including MWLL in that category too.
If they do this, then they can see all the ways it wasn't great and fix it so that it finally is.
Will there ever be a reboot of this reboot?? I hope not. If this is the last run for a great 'Mech game then they have to hit the 'Mech on the cockpit and they only get one chance.
Side note: I really wish Mech Commander 3 is finally developed... name it something else even. Just bring it.
It seems more that they've said "We love playing these games, but... it was never quite right. Let's make it right." to me. Especially after the 'bleh' that was MW4 (still fun though, meh).
