Please if you have not, vote for your top 4 Clan and top 4 IS mechs listed here. The list is not perfect but I feel its a wide spread enough selection it should be able to gather enough and with only 4 of each instead of 6 filling up all the monthly slots there is room here to discuss possible missing mechs (that I can add later IF there is enough support for a certain few mechs not listed).

It's POLL. You can still edit it.

Also, I am offended at the lack of Devastator, and Longbow in the IS selection.

You forgot the Piranha on the Clan side as an actual possibility. Also forgot the Flea on the IS side. ;)

I meant your erroneous spelling of the word "poll". And as I added later, you need to include the Devastator and the Longbow for IS.

For fairness sake, I only care about Inner Sphere mechs, so...

Sunder (Voted)
Strider (Voted)
Dervish (Voted)
Other (Owens)

For clans I voted (Only because I had to)...

Fire Moth
Fire Falcon
Bane
Other

So just deducted a vote for those last 4, I guess.

Also, I guess I should mention I am violently (Figuratively) opposed to the Champion being shoved through MWO's unified aesthetic. Leave the Goof Plane alone.

Clans:

Mad Cat MK2 (Duh)

Kingfisher (More duh)

Firemoth

Bane (And the pubs will cry out in terror from 8 LRM 15's)

You didn't vote for the CDS mechs just to spite me, didn't you? I hope you didn't need that shipment of cleaning supplies you ordered too much, considering it will be delayed indefinitely now due to "unexpected circumstances". >.>

We can't have Longbows or Bowmans without Arrow missiles.. or Fafnir without Heavy Goosewaffles.

That would be incredibly stupid.. almost as stupid as having Marauder IIc variants without heavy lasers.

This is why I did not list any mechs with extreme need for future tech, stuff very out of game. Hauptmann I did cause LBX-20 wouldnt be to hard to add or could be subbed for an AC20...Heavy lasers and ect for the say Blood Asp seemed like its a must and can not simply swap in ER's and call it good (it would feel wrong IMO)

For IS I had to make an exception with an other choice, but on your list I chose

Crusader
Annihilator
Wasp
And for the exception, Fafnir

While I voted on a couple IS mechs that, genuinely, would be solid options and/or are under high demand via nostalgia, I was more interested in the Clan mechs.

Fire Moth, goes without saying. Hits hard enough. Moves faster than anything in the game. Fills the missing 20-ton Clan gap. Cah-cah-cah-craaaaazy arms. What is not to like?

Pouncer, so that we have a second 40-ton option. One that trades some speed for raw firepower. A Nova in a 10-ton lighter package. If the Viper is speed, the Pouncer is firepower. Would be nice to have that option available.

Nova Cat because... well.... Nova Cat. I mean, really. Sexy pocket assault, viable 70-ton option. Can be a laser boat, ballistics platform, or crazy LRM boat equally well, with optional jump jet leg omnipods. Ah yis.

Mk II. As much as Impy's methods may have made others dislike the mech by association, the mech itself is solid. There is absolutely no getting around that. It would be a very effective 90-ton option for the Clans, though its jump jets would merely be hop jets. At least they can be removed.

Edit:

Should really have added the Javelin to the IS lineup, however. That is probably the light mech that the IS needs the most right now.
