Ditto, it's so cute now! (Until it melts the ankles off a Dire Wolf, but anyway)

Glad to see the Nova rescale, but what were you guys thinking with the Hunchback-IIC arms? There's no reason for them to be sticking out like that. The IS Hunchback doesn't have it's arms out, so why would the IIC?

Because they put jump jets on it, so it's learning to fly?
Or maybe people complaining the arm hardpoints were too low and this was easier than adjusting the position

Sadcat got a little happier, I need a magnifying glass to find a Nova now and the Hunchie flaps it's wings when you mouse over it. I like the way the Clan mediums turned out Posted Image

The old position definitely looks a lot better, too.

Nova and Catapult are about the only change so far that really are good for the game. Maybe the Awesome, but that mech has so many problems I doubt a new look will help much.

As for the rest, volume based or not, I can't say I'm impressed. If they had done this from the beginning - before people sank tons of time and money (real or in-game) into the often smaller, viable mechs, sure. But to come back years later and go, "Uh, we messed up, and your mech is now big and sucks, have a nice day," well... I can't say that it's really an improvement. That ship sailed, basically, barring massive quirks changes to help the new gimps.

Shadowcat torso bigger than Nova torso and taller. Shadowcat has few hardpoints, Nova too many hardpoints to actually use. So not really understanding why this is.

Yay for the Novas new size. I really like it. Guess it is about time that my CW drop deck gets back to three (or maybe four again?!) Novas. Posted Image

HBK-IIC has now slightly higher energy mounts in the arms? Clams OP, I guess.

50 ton Nova vs 45 ton Shadow Cat seems undersized a bit.

Nova much needed decrease, surprised how much smaller it is.

Arms on Hunchback spread, makes the model look far worse, for no apparently reason. As the height increase of the hard points isn't worth the destruction of its aesthetics .

As mentioned in the clan light mech thread, again lights seem to be missing on the shadow cat , taking away the character of the mech, and making it look rather bland
