Kintaro?

Really PG? A Kintaro?

Come on already... you're scraping the bottom of the barrel here...

I like that it fills a nice niche of a speedy SRM brawler, with the recent buffs, should be decently viable.

Nobody likes using round surfaces. It is a pain in the *** for millitary to replace/fix up and it adds too many polygons to the mech model, resulting in overally worse quality (because they have to spare those polygons somewhere else).


Good point about the polygons. That makes sense from a practical stand point. And the military point makes sense in universe.

Hooray! It's a 55 ton mech that's appropriately fast. Too bad it's not jump capable. Still, with weight class balancing a 55 ton mech is better than a 60 ton mech. Also... it's going to be a nice test of SRM balance during Kintaropocalypse.

I get tired of having nothing but giant metal people with guns to choose from. Seriously, I want a medium that doesn't look like a human with some bits attached.

Glad I'm not the only one who looked at that cockpit and thought 'Chief?'

First mech I REALLY am interested in. Not cause I hate the other ones but it fits my style best...fast, medium, and full of short range missles galore! LOVE IT! WANT IT!

Very excited to see another medium in the upper weight ranges! Love me some mediums! Though all the changes to terrain make me weep that it has no JJs!

Also, what's with the Snake love? Damn Imperialists! ;)

Cicada? Sorta Blackjack (more like a walking turret because of the arms)?

So? Skipping lights again are we?


Kintaro, Orion, Flea, + Unknown Assault to complete this set, then the Phoenix set after it. Gimme KING CRAB! O_O! CRAAAAAAAAAB!!!

They still haven't figured out MASC yet it seems and the Flea won't help shift the meta from PPCs and missiles. But it'll be out before the Locust or at about the same time.

From what I read here on the Kintaro for Sarna, it's a laser and missile boat. Mostly missiles with a combination of LRMs and SRMs. A 55 ton Trebuchet? So, moar missiles! 7.7;

That said it's nice to have a Draconis Combine mech.

So what's wrong with a Centurion? Has 3 missile hard points.

Can't believe you ripped the file for the new hero mech out of the game and posted it.

Will they let it stay or will it be removed?

I will say this though, the Golden Boy looks amazing, and the Kintaro looks like a fun mech.

And a Federated Suns mech, ironically enough. The KTO-18 is a Davion mech that drops the Lostech and adds a third SRM-6.

I have MC waiting on a hero kintaro, but will pass on std variants otherwise. MWO could use more light and medium heroes.
