This isn't a Scorpion. Not at all.

Looks kind of like a tractor.

Well... I am tempted because of the decals, the cockpit items and the colors. But the mech itself..mmmmmmmmno. Sorry.

So, this thing again has ECM and Jumpjets. Based on how PGI overvalue ECM and Jumpjets, these mechs actually may not have any quirks at all.

Which means they are going to be utter trash.

I like that there's a new mechpack and all, but could we get some info about this double XP weekend please?

How many IS mediums do we need in this game? More, apparently.

I already have the Vindicator and Blackjack. Please don't nerf either. I don't want nor need the Hellspawn.

I suspect this is going to need the Vindicator treatment to be worth it. Or just be somewhat smaller than usual, because those boxy hitboxes aren't going to get much mileage. The Vindicator doesn't have bad hitboxes, but it didn't do well before heavy quirk investment.

Yikes... who asked for this... thing?

-its hideous looking,

-6 variants with minimal differences and not a single ballistic among them. The rule of three is dead, so why is PGI still making up extra non-canonical variants that don't even do anything particularly interesting?

-missile arms are always bad above Tier 4, and mean none of the variants can boat SRMs, which is normally what you do at this weight range

edit Though it looks like missiles placed in the arms end up on high fixed mounts. That's kind of neat, I guess. And maybe makes SRMs sort of viable on it after all (though the spread will be bad).

The coolest thing there is the Not the Eye of Sauron ™.

Actually Standard's package 9F has four missiles, and reinforcement 8P has five missiles.

But yeah, missile arms and stuffs... This mech may be succeed Vindicator as the worst medium mech.

Well, with that name, it'd be weird if it were beautiful. Posted Image

But it looks like the offspring of a Phoenix Hawk and a piece of farmyard equipment.

Incidentally, as I look at it, I find myself wondering what it gives me on top of a nice Phoenix Hawk build.

I appreciate that PGI went for a lighter 'mech.

I will put it very simple: WE HAVE ENOUGH MECHS! WE NEED MORE MAPS - A LOT MORE MAPS (not only one or two!)

AND FIXED GAME MODES!

Being cuboidal? A theoretically much smaller target, for one. Not having all the guns in the arms for another. While I expect quirks to be weak on the mech, it seems, at least theoretically, more viable than the Pixie.

Maybe they should just crowd fund their Map budget:

For every X dollars they forgo the profits they would make on a mech pack and redouble efforts on a new map...

It never ceases to amaze me how the mech pack team churns out these things. Without fail. Oddball look/not getting quirks aside. This team PRODUCES. Why is it other aspects of the game are not being addressed in as a reliable, consistent and dependable manner? (Maps, matchmaker, hitboxes, FP, etc)
