In simple words, Quads are awesome. In complex words... they're awesome, and though you may not like them, they are an intergral part of the Battle-Tech universe, and will undoubtedly be included in this game. If you don't like it, simply don't use them.
Quads are NOT (and never will be) an integral part of the BT universe (do you know what integral means?) - at best they are a footnote. That they have been mentioned at all is merely an amazing bit ot trivia . They have never decided the outcome of ANY battle in the BT canon. Shunned by Mechwarriors and relgated to an infantry support role. Thrown into the canon fiction to bring in ID-10-Ts who would not give BT/CBT/MW a second look otherwise.
Integral (adj) - Necessary to make complete; essential or fundamental: "integral sections".
NOBODY can sanely argue that quads are integral to BT let alone "undoubtedly be included in this game". You're smoking dope,otherwise mate.
They were in Dougram:Fang of the Sun because they needed something in that Anime that could maintain a stable platform in wide open environments, like deserts or snow fields, places where a bi-pedal mech would not be as stable. The writers of the BT fiction and TT game must have been bored.
