Hunchback shoulders (and torso pose ?) are a bit different... and camo is missing where the shoulder used to be.

I think one nice addition (though this is already a huge amount of work) would be simply to list the % up/down on each chassis.

Tall and big, not the same. It is also very spindly, overall.

Eh.
I guess what's obvious is that the rescale is going to put more reliance on other things to balance the mechs that are under-achievers.

I'm just hoping that PGI is on the ball with this, and realizes the potential in weight-class Role tree perhaps... Maybe even make some roles mech specific... who knows. Because Quirks and [fudged] hit-box adjustments are the only things separating some of these low-tier (poor geo, and poor hardpoint) mechs from higher tier ones...

Thanks for fixing the enforcer's arms and back-leaning stance...
My "OCD flare ups" over that have now been subdued. Mmmm.

Really? PGI made the Shadowhawk and Vindicator bigger???

I guess I should just be thankful that they didn't mess with my HBKs too much.

Blackjack won't get significantly larger he says. It'll be fine he says.

Top kek.

Plus quirk nerfs on the BJ-1X, which already sees zero use at the top end precisely because it has way too much burn-time with medium lasers and the medium pulse are too short ranged. Oh boy, have the mighty fallen. But hey, having 936 meter AC/2 or 806 meter AC/5 is good compensation, right?

Vindicator is pleased. I've been seeing a lot of them recently, can't tell whether it's practice for the PHX or there's been a shift in the meta solution.

The Wolfhound is the taller than the Hunchback and is almost the same size as a Hunchback, so you should probably be happy that the Blackjack didn't get huge. I think. Maybe that's what PGI wants you to think.

I dunno how the Griffin gets taller from the changes... it makes literally no sense.

By the looks of it the swayback lost a laser :P

And the Vindicator was made slightly smaller, pay attention to the roll over states.

Unfortunately, relative sizing is completely irrelevant because the difficulty of making a shot hit where you want is on a fixed, absolute scale.

At least the Centurion got a bit smaller, but why did the Griffin grow? Blah.

Okay wait.. no Trebuchet rescale? It was one of the mech that definitely needed it. Well at least the Shadowhawks got a tad smaller..

Still annoyed at no love for the Treb though.

Dude, you deserve the MVP award for this post right here.

That would fix SO MANY of the problems the game suffers from, which is probably the exact reason such a change will never come to pass.

Enforcer got bigger and centurion smaller. We'll see, I guess.

No, it wasn't.
