Never before have I been so excited for a goddamn robot.

I can't breathe. Someone slap me.

Hmm, kind of disappointed to see that running around with closed claws is only a tiny impulse delay Would have been interesting if you actually had to make a tactical decision about whether to keep the claws open for shorter reaction time or keep them clsoed for protection. Right now, it looks like the impulse delay isn't worth keeping them open, except to look cool.

The cockpit looks fantastic. One of the cooler cockpits we've seen so far in MWO I think.

On a positive note, it's cool that the IS has received a mech that can rival the firepower of Clan assault mechs. I'm also glad to finally see an Inner Sphere mech that can mount 6xAC2 and 2xAC20 without being a huge joke.

On a negative note, power creep is real and we now have one less reason to pilot the Atlas. Especially AS7-D and AS7-K.

PS: Congrats on the achievement unlocks.

How much do you want to bet that people will use 6 Machine Guns on the 6 ballistic variant?

Also, tiny assault mech is tiny.

I really want to see this 100 ton assault mech's profile next to the 50 ton Trebuchet for a size comparison.

Gon' be good.

Man, the Catapult needs to be shown some mercy. It's too damn big by a long shot.

Lynx wasnt, Fridge wasn't, Loki wasn't.

IS mechs were. Clams were not.

I dunno, the rest of the Wave II robots had fairly generic and meh quirks applied ahead of time...

I'm expecting a lot of Gargoyles to get eaten by teh Crabz as they both push the assault queue to over 80%.

Clans are still OP and need further nerfing, quirks are only for the IS...atleast good and useful ones.

I see 3 "unique" ones.

4B 3E 3M
2B 4E 4M

I was expecting one with LAAs.

Are we getting all three? Or as it was with the Atlas, just the one with 30% bonus?
