What a cruel offensive joke...

PGI I actually NEED access to the Urban Mech for setting up stock battles, especially since the Urban is common to Merc/Liao.

Not a good April Fool's joke sorry.

It would have been better if PGI had actually made the mech available but for a price of 100,000,000 Cbills.

I love that Raven hero mech, it is a crunchy little target on the battlefield.

We're excited to announce the UrbanMech UM-R60! This little guy packs quite the little punch with 1 AC/10 and 1 Small Laser for popping off those Mechs you know are hiding in an urban area. With a top speed of 32.4 kph, you won't be expected to chase down those pesky Jenners. Finally!

The UrbanMech UM-R60 will be available from April 1st with a Premium Skin. This unique Mech is available to only the most loyal MechWarriors, including 2 variants and the additional Hero variant.

A new Hero Mech arrives on the battlefield! The UM-CUB "Urbie Curby" comes hot from the manufacturer with two rear mounted AC/20s for pummeling at close range. Grab a partner pilot to join the glory, this Mech has no need for an engine! Ask a lancemate to tow you around (Attach hitch with "E") or stay put at your base like a defensive turret.


Making Urbie into an april fools joke is a good way to get on my "Kill on Sight" list, Devs! *Glares angrily!!!*

Ahem: LAAAWWWL

Gotta admit, I had a smile on my face reading over this one, especially the 'Attach Hitch' button on the Hero.

What's even funnier is all the people crying 'Foul! FOUL!' over it. Delicious UrbanTears, especially for anyone who didn't look at the thread title and immediately realize what day it is today. Come on guys, really? You had to know what you were getting into, eh?

You could make some cash if you released that gold Urbie as an Aprils Fools cockpit item.

indeed. I got my Classy Urbie, so I would add his evil ghetto cousin, "Bling Urbie" to my collection!

Not funny PGI. You should have released UrbanMech ages ago.

But are there limited GOLD Urbanmechs?

There are several omissions in the Urbie stats. They have Jump Jets, guys. TWO of them.

(Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, an Urbanmech could actually function as a light jump-sniper ...)
