You really, REEEEALLY need to change the voting structure on this poll, PGI. Multiple options -three, perhaps- are pretty much required here. I know I speak for more than just myself when I say that, forced to choose just one, I know which one it'll be - but the problem is, I know a lot of other people will do the same. And that will suck votes away from other valid candidates, leaving the few people who vote for the LEAST valid option to exert an unnaturally strong influence on the end results. That's bad. Really, really bad.

I hope this poorly conceived 1-vote structure is semi-meaningless and PGI fixes all of problem mechs and takes better care in the future for newly released mechs.

How the Trebuchet lost to the Centurion or Shadow Hawk I will never understand.
I also don't get how we can only vote for one when 5 will be chosen.

If the Shadowhawk gets it, I'm going to seriously blow a gasket.

The poll is also silly because of how nebulous it is- for example, the Stalker made it to the list of finalists because it's too small, but essentially every other mech is there because it's too big. If the Stalker wins, is it going to be made smaller? What's going on with this?

One vote does make this one really difficult. I had to vote for the Quickdraw, because it is one of the worst offenders. At least for the moment the top 5 are the Nova, Catapult, Awesome, Quickdraw, and Kit Fox (in that order, at this time) . . . although I'd rather the Centurion be in the top 5 over the Kit Fox, it is what it is.

At least for the moment the ones that are in the lead are respectable choices for being in the lead. Hopefully it stays that way.

No kidding. That's the ONLY one on the list that I don't think should have made it through. It should have been the Trebuchet in its place.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Regardless, hopefully this is the beginning of PGI using a standard volumetric scale in association with tonnage, and they go back and redo all of the mechs to fit reasonably within that scale.

Actually, they stated that the next phase of voting would be whether it needs to be made bigger, or smaller, according to popular vote. Now, I'm sure if people went in and ridiculously voted that the Stalker needed to be made even smaller, then I'm hoping PGI would dismiss it.

More than likely the final phase of voting is mostly to get a feel for what people think about the mech, whilst looking at commentary for specifics (Quickdraw is too bloody tall, for example).

Einstein had a theory about human stupidity, we're just trying to make it into a scientific theory and setting it apart from a hypothesis.

But what can you expect when the boss goes, i dunno and don't care so you guys decide.

Mech that have no business there: Raven, Adder, Centurion, Shadowhawk, pult(sue me), victor(sue me again size isnt the problem), Stalker.


This just in, people don't think bigger problem than their own need fixing. It's not THEIR problem after all.

While I understand, that there're also some Clanmechs to be rescaled, especially the nova (exspecially after the release of the Ebon Jaguar), I personally recommend to urgently rescale the IS mechs first. No matter which mech gets the most votes. We're all waiting for a long time to get some chassis rescaled finally! Awesome, Quickdraw and Catapult before all others! While the Shadowhawk IS very tall, at least it's still a pretty good mech compared to the Grasshopper. Don't know why the dragon didn't make it so far, perhaps because of some meta-build possibilities.

If anyone from PGI reads this : As others have stated, it would make more sense to give us the ability to vote multiple choices, either in the form of checkboxes, or in the form of one choice per class.

For everyone else : I urge that we vote for the chassis which needs the most help first, and ensure they stay in the Top 5. Kit Fox is in a relatively dangerous position at the moment (A 8-way tie for 5th place is fine though. lol)

here's a crazy idea... how about you just do all of the ones on this list and get most of the Mechs that need re-scaling done?

After 255 votes the Awesome is at 3rd place? Lol I expected it to be the first by far. It's the mech that started the whole discussion about rescaling. Back in CB. It's the mech that is called the barn door.

It's the mech that inspired jokes like:
'The Awesome hitboxes are so big, they bend the time and space dimension so that every shot that is hardly fired into your direction, or on any of your teammates, or were fired at all, today, yesterday and forever will immidiately hit the Awesome.'

A word about that pixel comparison graph. The Awesome is one of the tiniest assaults according to that graph. That just shows me how serious I should take that graph.

I hope when they rescale the top five mechs they also lower the stance on clan mechs (timberwolf, mad dog, cauldron born), but come on the grasshopper made it into the second round but the mad dog didn't?

I feel the same way about the Grasshopper, as I like the higher weapon mountings. Since the Shadowhawk was the de facto Medium before Clans & Quirks I'm quite stumped it made it to this poll.

Out of sight, out of mind? I find it extremely rare to see one in a match. I've never owned one, but I did vote for it.

Now is the time to correct a mistake and injustice that was committed to Alex Iglesias beautiful rendition of the Centurion O So long ago. Sure there are more recent examples that need to be rectified like the Nova... but Centurion has been O so wrong for O so long.

Vote for Pedro my friends!!!

While Treb and Quickdraw do need rescales, the Treb is skinny compared to the Centurion...

But honestly, on the left is MWO's Centurion. On the right is the same Centurion rescaled to match the limb and body thickness of the concept art.

I'm not saying that the modelers ****** its proportions up.
But they did.

Same with Quickdraw
