I am hoping and praying the wolfhound makes it into this game. huge fan, its one of the sickest looking mechs in the game...and its extremely good

Also the Orion is probably one of my top 3 favorite mechs of all time.

Let's hope the Orion is the next heavy mech.

Hm.. I'm reading the http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Wolfhound and it looks the Wolfhound is a very unlikely mech, considering the (few) variants are basically the same. ;)

4th July indicates a Davion Mech. So yeah, why not a Victor.

A locust... thats almost as bad as the urbanmech.

Problem is since the unseen were the first mechs designed these are the most versatile and typically have the most variants (Marauder has about a dozen until 3075). These are also quite iconic for Battletech. Later mech designs were most of the time designed just to fit certain special roles and gaps that the more versitile Mechs could barely cover.

so best would be to just introduce all unseen into the game ;-)

Victor or orion seems a to be a viable guess...

I would opt for the Marauder ;)

This is a very obscure mech with only 1 variant. Not a chance.

Good guess.

Let´s wait and we shall see what will be next...

Devs should release a Timberwolf, just to tease us... well and since the Timberwolf is pretty much the Poster Child for anything Mechwarrior

Hell... Timberwolf should be a Mech as an option for the founder Program, even if we dont get to use it for like a year or what ever lol

Can you imgaine the Sales MWO would get ?

Indeed. The would sell MWO much more with the clan mechs as founders. But they choose to start with the IS, and I respect that decision. Off course Timberwolf/Mad Cat will show eventually, and there will be ways to buy special versions of it.
