Getting out of the closet...

Please refrain laughing at me - this confession is as hard as it is.
Through the years defending Sky..errr Steiner interests in the Galaxy, using our beloved mech's to punch common sense in the other houses, i have never confessed this to anyone, but here it goes.
I don't like the Atlas.
Seriously, i think its ugly (and not in a cool way, its "its got a huge head" ugly).
I can't stand it.
Laugh as much as you want now.
I've SAID IT. IM FREE!
And im sure i'm not alone!!

I for one love all of FD's redesigns and taking 15 min line art from the TROs to a 2012 re-envision. Looks bad ***, functional and deadly.!

I think he was saying it about the general design, not necessarily FD's artwork.
I think it's a very large profile target, which for me (if they implement LRMS/Arty correctly) will be a lot of fun for scouts.

That being said, you raise a valid point. The Atlas is ugly as hell but I think that serves more for the psychological warfare. The huge, skull like head SHOULD send shivers up your spine if you ever encounter one. I think the main appeal of it to most people is the fact that it's a giant death's head, and of course a 100 tonner.

You can drag me kicking and screaming into an AS7-K...

Besides, it's not like you said you didn't like the Zeus or something...

When i want a SW Era Assault Mech i feel more comfortable with the BNC-3S, STK-3F or HGN-733

I am not shamed of this.
A marauder II, now that is a beatiful mech - the ones i like! ... i ain't going for no stinkin' locust BA.
Just a couple notes:
1. Hey, I pay my taxes to the Lyran commonwealth, im loyal!!!! (although those are then used to fund your Lyran useless expenses, as it is known that you are a bunch of snow surfing lazy bums)
2. There is a davion in this thread - quick, hide your archons!

I am not saing it is not a good mech, but it is not fun.

I don't value the opinion of capellans though.

- that certain speedy look of the Atlas streamlined hull that is known and feared by the enemies of our beautifull demesne for its gracefull and fluid motions even under most heavy ordnance fire
- and the Atlas sheer awesomness of versatility due to the fact that its well rounded design can do both, reckon scouting missions OR fast and devastating harrassment tactics of the enemy cumbersome and heavy forces.
In conclusion, he who would ever chose a Marauder II over an Atlas has NOT understood the true role of a scout 'mech. But well, I do hope that you will not learn the error of your way ... ehrm... the hard way.
Edit: And Damocles, I salute you for your heroism, scouting in that tin can of a Zeus is realy only for the boldest of Pilots!

Schnapps, Jägermeister and Timbiqui Dark to be exact!
You don't need walk through walls cheats when you're driving an assault.

The Zeus is a very good medium mech, for example, which I like.
