Hello all,

Today while PUG-íng I was told at the start of the match that my Medium Mech (Hunchback 4P) was not welcome in the team. That I should play a heavy or assault or a light.

Then that my medium was in fact a liability to the team.

Has any one else had this please ? its was rather nasty.

When the Weight restriction comes into game they beg for Medium Pilots.

Meh! Prove them wrong.

While I have never had this personally I recently had someone mocking my Wolverine build (AC5, SRM6/artemis and a medium pulse), match ended I had 3 kills and 700 damage, they had 150 odd damage. I left the match with a 'I'm sorry for making you look terrible" and feeling very smug.

It was also idiocy.

The amount of damage you can do with a decent and decently-played Medium is mind-blowing. And specifically the amount of Hunchbacks still seen in matches despite a lot of competing designs shows the mech is a good choice in all aspects.

The trouble with many people is that they will soak up some formulaic statement from others that makes sense within a specific situation, and then go on and apply that statement to any and all situations.

Bough three Hunchies last week (P, SP, H), those things are beastly. Fast and agile, with punch comparable to heavies. I rarely score under 2 kills per match with (usually) around 400-500 damage. And that without Elite unlocked.

lol, no. Anything that can move at 97kph and still pack a 45pt alpha is anything but a liability. It's not too difficult to score 500+ damage in a Hunchie (particularly a 4P) and the classic 6 mlas hunch is the bane of any large target (I'm looking at you Cataphracts and Jagers.)

Thankfully, I've never encountered this attitude, so I would assume it was just one player with a somewhat skewed opinion of the game.

Just ignore them. Mediums are already awesome, and when the weight limits come what class do you think will do the best? Mediums.

When you're done with the Hunchies try the Shadow Hawks the JJs add a whole new way to add to your kill count. The Griffins and Wolverines are next on my list, they should be on yours!

:P

The hunchback falls below the curve if you only look at tonnage/ load out , but people undervalue the Manueverability of a good medium. Prove them wrong, get your kills/assists and enjoy the mech you like.

Well, it's the Internet, people talk sh*t, you know? I wouldn't be even bothered to disrespectfully disagree....

I love my Hunchbacks.

Don't let one comment bother you, I assure you that unfortunately there are plenty of ********* in this game. Or any game for that matter.

Exactly.

Besides, once CW comes along and restrictions are in place, people will love having an experienced Medium Pilot on their side. So get your practice in now!

Ignore them. You get those types of people everywhere these days. Particularly in video games. *******s that think that people actually care what they think.

Wow, I would say play absolutely ANYTHING YOU WANT. :P

That being said, in my whole stable of almost 40 mechs at the moment, my new Wolverine has the absolutely highest KDR (bordering 4.0 with close to 60 matches run).

It's fast (116kph), durable and sports 5 medium lasers that I can alpha strike over and over without fear of overheating.

I laugh in the face of those who say mediums are worthless. Centurions used to be amazing with their immortal hitboxes (still aren't bad), and now ShadowHawks and Wolverines rule the roost.

Plus once weight restrictions are dropped on us you'll be thankful for those mediums!
