Gonna say again that re-working old maps would be amazing and would probably win PGI many many friends. :D

ECM Locust. Probably won't even wait for that one to go on sale. :D

While I don't think many players will deny the execution of this game has often been lacking at times, I'm sure we can all agree that the art design is simply second to none.

[awesomeness]

The map is really beautiful. I loved the moths flying around.

The heroes are great and the new mech Mist Lynx is adorable.

BTW: OMG, what's up with that creature in the water in the video's last seconds?!?! Can it attack someone?

Will probably buy the hero Shad eventually, because why play the Shad with a cbill bonus?

Nice!

I coincidentally just so happened to have read "Decision at Thunder Rift" a couple days ago, and started reading "Mercenary's Star" today. Then to watch this and see Grayson and Lori represented in MWO! Badass PGI! I love it!

P.S. The new map looks slick. Can't wait to try it out.

Man 'Decision at Thunder Rift' was my very first Battletech book, when I was kid in like '92. I knew nothing of the universe but my dad had us at the book store and said he'd buy any book for me. I wondered the aisle and was drawn to the awesome "robots" on this whole section of shelves. I picked DaTR because the Marauder looks so cool.

Needless to say, I've been hooked on Battletech ever since.

ECM on the locust. i've been wanting and wanting this type of variant, and it's only MC to get. Pleasepleaseplease make a cbill locust variant that has ECM,
It's only five bucks.

Buy one less coffee and support the game you're playing.

It'll be worth it for the additional CBills, as much as anything.

I'd heard of this map, but to see this really brings out my inner swamp monster mwhehe! Can't wait to get to lurk around in that beautiful rich lush environment! And speaking of swamp monsters, the creature if that will indeed be a part of the final product makes a nice touch to the environment, things like that really help make a map feel alive! It's a step towards the right direction in the future, and maps that go a step further with such concepts that add say moving civilian vehicles you must not destroy (Tiny reward C-bill penalty maybe?) or other animals and so on in maps that help add a sense of scale in addtion to breathing life in a map!

Just be careful about making plants and other things overly large that wouldn't strike most people as naturally ever being that size, it's important to preserve sense of scale. But other than that, it's a splendid looking map and look forward to it!

Reaction:

Focused more on swamp map which is good. What I saw makes me excited, we've needed a new biome for awhile.

Didn't review or show combat footage of the mechs enough. Could have shown the Myst Lynx fighting the Hero Locust. Only briefly showed the load outs of each and the Myst Lynx has 2 other configurations.

I still think I agree that we need a redwood forest biome and a "elephant graveyard" underground cavern biome where most of the map is underground in various corridors underground with animal bones left and visible ore/resources along the walls in their natural form.

new map looks scary, waiting for King Kong to pop out somewhere. dunno if that was a giant worm or snake, but I wonder if there is going  be any AI running around. Locust with ECM should be a real B-buster :)

A forest map where we cant smash and bring the trees down is like a sundae without the candy cherry on top :( Still good, but missing something...

I think, I will hate this map.. not just, because the fog, my FPS will be about 10 (+/-2), but, I can't use direkt weaponst, if I don't see clearly my target... Ye, my bad... So.. looks like, my LRMs Boats will stay in duty in the future too...

Should be easy to aim at the middle of the square and hit something. ;)

When I saw the Mist Lynx in the beginning I thought it was a Stormcrow with jumpjets.. :P

I really like the new heroes. I'm going to be getting them both. I've been wanting a Locust with ECM for a while, this might make it a little more popular on the battlefield.

As for a Hero having ECM... Although I'm not keen on the idea of an ECM capable mech being locked behind a paywall, I think in this case it's okay. Simply because of the fact that

1. ECM can be countered a dozen different ways.

2. There are plenty of other ECM capable mechs in the game(some better that others) available for C-bills.

3. This will help make the Locust Hero more unique and stand out.

As for the new Shadowhawk Hero. I like it a LOT! I'm way into using energy weapons and that thing looks like it will be fun to use.

Also, the swamp map looks cool and the idea of going back and rebuilding maps should be kept on the back burner for if/when you do a time jump into the Dark Ages.
