I guess Alex redesigned the circular side torsi in order for them to become less obvious (as ST). But appearance wise I prefer this one:

I dunno-I think it's more because it tends to be the most 'unique' idea for a hero, considering very few standard variants they release nowadays have missiles, and if they do, they aren't primary weapons. For example, of the five non-hero Blood Asps, only two have missiles; One has a CT missile, the other has arm missiles. The rest are all energy+ballistic spam.

I think this one looks great.

But i thought "Rancor" is a Star Wars trademark?

Dear PGI...

The Blood Asp is fine, seems to be OP but design is perfect and bla bla bla...

BUT : Hero is 2xM and 6xE ? Really ?

Just some example of two other assaults hero mech created by and wich are not old at all : Wolf Phoenix : 4xM and 4xE, Mean Baby 6xE and 4xE. Ho and other non assaults hero : Belial 4xE and 2xM; Cobra Cat 4xM and 4xE; Hangover 5xE and 5xM...

An other hero with a combination of missiles and Energy is a bit redondant... Are you afraid of ballistic hero mech ?

It's an omnimech, meaning that, except for the CT, you can replace the omnipods in your hero.

Yeah, it's nice. Yeah, I will buy the 3D printed mini because there will finally be a version with correct proportions. So, I am excited about this mech.

But what we Clan players would really like is a non-OMNI 60 tonner.

Thresher
Matador
Hellfire

Don't care which, just something that is 60 tons, and non omni.

Thanks

Rancor is a regular word, not just a SW creature.

Since the A variant is basically the only variant that everyone will use, I'm thinking about the level of GIGA-QUIRKS PGI have to give to all other non-A variants to make them even come close to being useful!!!

This looks awesome :) except for those guns at the top, the side torsos aren't really standing out. It's got big shield arms and the CT is pretty narrow. I think the hitboxes are gonna be perfect on this mech. This mech could really be OP as $#!7 :)

Might as well preorder it :)

Going to be a good mech, but I doubt it'll game-breaking. BAS-B CT and BAS-Prime arms, side torsos, and legs, and you have the Deathstrike with better Gauss mounts and ECM. That'll be a good mech, but it's got a broader chest (with 90-tonner twist-speeds), so it'll be easier than the Mad Cat II to CT. Peeking profile for the ballistic mounts is good, but most of the meta-Deathstrike's damage is the alpha from its lasers, which are on quite lower mounts. Not to mention a dual-Gauss Sun Spider will have a similar profile and will have faster acceleration/deceleration.

As I said, it'll be a good mech if only because it's so similar to the Deathstrike, which is a good mech. Might even be the king of Solo QP RangeWarrior Online. But not game-breaking since there are mechs that will do similar things, and will likely die more easily.

Actually kind of surprised PGI's releasing the Blood Asp, since it's so similar to a hero mech that was fairly recently released. I was hoping for the Stone Rhino, myself, since Clans lack good, tanky 100-tonners.

Or, the negative quirks they will give that one. Remember, they still think negative quirks are valid on the TBR.

Buyer beware. Just saying.

I think there's a Cataphract hiding in there somewhere.

The IS needs something to compete with the likes of the MKII & now Blood Asp.

May I humbly suggest http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Vapor_Eagle or even http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Rifleman_IIC for that matter.

Just bringing it up so PGI knows we still want it: Pretty sure Fire Moth would be a good choice to release at some point.

Now that we have the Piranha, I'm staring to think it's really never going to happen. Not like the Cryengine-can't-handle it kind of never happen.

Blood Asp looks cool. I know a lot of people were looking forward to it.
