Well...I never thought they would release this one. It brings back some nostalgia, but at least the Bushwhacker is happy since it's no longer the ugliest mech in the game.

My prediction for the next Inner Sphere `Mech, will be the Cry-Baby Chimera. One of the worst `Mechs in MechWarrior game History. I hated that Piece of. . . .`Mech

have to correct your post: "one of the mechs I was most **** at piloting"

the Chimera is actually a pretty solid and flexible 40-tonner.

The only Chimera variant that would not be total garbage is the one with the sword and TSM (and C3), i.e. the one with all the tech we don't have in MWO.

The others are simply horrible, just look at the hardpoints and their locations: 2x energy (LA), 1x missile (RT), and 1x ballistic (RA); or 2x energy (LA) and 1x missile (RT). Without a ridiculous inflation and non-canon PGI-variants sporting a different layout there is nothing to be done with this Mech that other Mechs could not do better.
And even then Assassin and Cicada would have the better geometry, for the Chimera has huge and easily destroyed STs.

The Chimera would be the worst 40 ton Mech in MWO unless PGI creates variants which have nothing to do with the source material – but then you could just chose a Mech that is not horrible out of the box to begin with.

And it is even worse in TT.

I totally agree. They can keep the Primary, but release four others and a Hero that has nothing to do with the source version.

Lucky me, it's so ugly it will be the first IS Mech i don't want to buy.


I thought the same of the Uziel then persuaded myself to get it... it turned out to be even worse than the artwork.

Don't make my mistake!

Now THAT mech is repulsive.
It does not look cool.
It can't do anything other mechs could do better.
It is neither a Battletech classicclassic nor extremely popular in any other MW title.

Beats me why you would bring that thing.Posted Image

Dude, give it up! Mich over at BATTLETECH is even considering crowd-funding a device that can strangle people over the internet because of you and your "quads" Posted Image
