Holy crap, would some admin lock this horrible thread, it is from 2014 for petes sake.


The exalted Urbie shall not be silenced for his impact and influence is incalculable...

The game should simply save everyone some trouble and have a $20 one time fee to create an account. Upon payment you receive an Urbie pack.

It should be done... It shall be done.

Urbie for life! Haven't actually got one but have been killed by and watched one take on 3 heavies for at least one minute with stock minus laser plus endosteel and xl engine. When I get enough, the urbie will be my friend. Long live King Urbie! and let there be Urbanmech IIC!

That is true in respect to the rule existing, but PGi "explained" having the rule due to functional effects on the gameplay. This is not TT. We do not need TT rules. Do you see dice in my hand?

Remember, we were allowed to drop with less than 10 heatsinks in early closed beta. They change that after the game was initially made playable. I remember my 8 SHS Commando well.


Of course table top rules can't be the last word in MWO, but every chance PGI takes to pay homage to those rules makes old school tt players smile with nostalgia. I'd rather have nostalgia than munchkin meta anyday (cause I'm old enough that the clans would never let me pilot a mech!)

And in total contradiction of all that, long live the Urbanmech!

Well I just had one of those games this morning. Started to think nothing would run my way while tagging along with a direwolf. Why, who would you shoot at first a little urbie or a big bad direwolf? I would just stand a bit off to the right with my MG's and MPL's and just go for successful XL checks and then the lights decided to descend on the direwolf. I just stood there and one shot a locust running away (360 torso twist action) and then the arctic cheetah. Legged him and just lit him up on the other leg. Now the Jenner IIc just ran away in fear. At this point I have 3 kills and have not moved since engaging. So I just turned back and there were a few nice targets right infront of me, just gunning for the big bad direwolf. I did what any urban mech would do, slipped under the radar and caused fear with my MG's while running into the mist of them, causing havoc. Lost a leg, but everyone else cleaned them up. So now there is one mech left and no one sees them and I am left all alone under by the tunnel entrance on crimson straights. So I set up in the corner and wait. Then a red CT cord nova wandered by. Taped him with the MPL's and as he turned fired up the MG's and dead.

The best thing was I had 3 kills before anyone even bothered to even fire at me. Why, I'm an urbie.

this makes it too easy to spot the ct, better misplace the eye and throusers in a weird 45degree angle. to mess up with peoples perception while utilizing 360 twisting.

I think the Urbinion should be paired with an all-stainless LAM.

The Urbie is so awesome, we should be allowed to to simply solder a PHX-LAM to it's back... The 75ton flying Urbie!
