Sadly, it doesn't include the Scorpion. (Also, weirdly it includes mechs like the King Crab and the Highlander, but doesn't include the Crab)


I'm holding out hope that they add quads for you Juodas :)

Don't.
Pretty sure they've stated that there won't be any quads, because "they're hard to animate" or something...

I've already lost hope.

Well, I guess I will get good with Commandos, or die trying!


Don't stop moving. Stay with the assaults and heavies. Always be in cover if you aren't shooting. Never attack an I distracted enemy from the front. Mostly don't stop, you don't need to aim just harass. After awhile you will get a feel for it and then you can flank and back stab. Commandos do not do the " charge through the enemy lines and run around them in circles the. Run back" thing that Firestarters and Cheetos get away with. Don't try it ;). Have fun

I am going to have to backtrack on my pledge to play Commandos exclusively, that is too nuts even for me! I will still create my alt account and play a few games a day for my challenge though! Yes, feel free to unlike my "play Commandos only" comment if you had liked it. It will be cool to see what the stats on my Commando account will look like when BATTLETECH is out, though.

Victor?

Two years ago that would have been awesome...... Before poptarts went and got the Victor ruined for everyone.

Don't have a computer , but maybe I can get it to play on task low settings on my laptop..... Maybe.

What name to use.....?

Huh, pretty wide range of results it seems. I got a Hunchback, kinda figured I would get a medium. Did not expect that one.

Grasshopper. Which is odd because I got three of them on my founders account that I normally don't play on too much anymore. Hmm. Maybe I'll have to change that for a while/ periodically.

If you don't mind meta, my 3 LPL 1Gauss is rather successful after you get used to low arms and no jj. It's agile and quick and everything im arms make it really good at dogfight.

Is there some sort of pattern to names in battletech? Just kind of would like to know if I were to ever make an alt account to do something like this.

I got Raven btw.... Gotta say, even outside of battletech, Raven related stuff keeps flocking to me this month. At least it's in the theme with halloween. :P

Alright! Finished the tutorial and got gold on the movement trial, so I was able to buy and partially mod A Commando 2D. I did two games and got one kill, but it is going to be painful until I can get an XL engine.
