Let's keep it real. It would be pretty fun to use an Elemental on the battlefield.
When the game gets in Better shape, would you use a Battle Armor mech?

what are you supposed to do with a slow, poorly armed and armored (for battlemech standards) half-mech ?

Elementals are properly scary to an assult mech. They have their role.

I think you'd need to add melee combat to make battle armour effective since half their armament is typically a claw for ripping off armour. Unless they just gave you weapons on both arms.
It sounds fun in theory but I can't see them being all that useful in game.

Yeah true but they are usueful when it matters they are an annoying pest can take the attention off of the other mechs. Can also be used as a decent scout considering the size. Used correctly they can be a pain in the ***.

Not really the devs already have their project layouts for 9 months +. This isnt in them. You can make an ask a dev post, and I know they will say no... Essentially a mech game for mechs. It would probably take 6 months+ to implement armor in which most people dont really care about it... Also how badly uneven games would be as they're instanced set number v. set number.

No, thanks. If trying to take down light mechs was already a PITA enough, imagine smaller and even faster obstacles, i.e. Elementals. Right, I might as well just quit.

Besides, there are tons of online multiplayer shooters that offer this type of gameplay, like Tribes: Ascend, PlanetSide 2, hell, might as well even consider Halo.

Actually, no, I found HAWKEN to be quite enjoyable. It's really too bad HAWKEN isn't MW:O, or should I say, it's too bad that MW:O isn't HAWKEN. Figure out what I mean.

Not bad. It just isn't Mechwarrior. For me that's the striking point.
