Erase all clan mechs - they aren't doing clan mechs right now, so you won't see them for more than a year.
Erase all mechs post 3049 - Next releases are 3050 and 3055. How frequently they release mechs is still a mystery. We have no clue if it will be on the day or grouped and in intervals.
This leaves mechs prior to 3050, and that's still a lot of mechs. They haven't said you won't see them, thereby invalidating the entire topic. Furthermore, they explicitly said nothing came of the "legal issues," thereby confirming that the unseen are not legally tied down.
From your condescending tone about me "getting over it," I'd say you're rather sore about the preclusion of clans and your anger at me pointing it out, despite I never said they "will never be in the game."
As a note, smugness is a character flaw. I'd advise being either stoic or at least try non-hostile responses.
You seem to be reading far more into my posts than is actually there. My initial response was merely due to the fact that I often see the attitude of, "Nothing after 3025 matters." from "Old School" folks who still think the Clans are the new thing that ruined the game.
I merely assumed that was what you were doing. It seems my assumption was incorrect, and for that I apologize.
Anyway, I agree with you that there are more than enough mechs that are available in this time period, as was the main point of my initial post.
