Interesting choice, didn't expect this one.

Let's see what's next

if there's one thing i've noticed, it's that PGI likes to pick the Mechs that haven't had a chance to be in a MechWarrior game yet (like the Cataphract for instance)

Hmm... a New 60-Ton Mech. It even has an interesting name, "Hellfire"... I think I'll look forward to seeing this one. The entire body looks balanced, and the MASC will result in some interesting gameplay... No JumpJets for this one though, so I'll have to look forward to there being some 60-Ton with JumpJets for the Clans in the future. It's definitely a new target for my I.S. Mechs to enjoy blasting. :)

Now... Where's the UrbanMech-IIC to mix-and-match with the Hellfire? :P

I am guessing that you will not see anymore unseen derivatives for a while.

But we need to complete the Marauder collection, we've had a Marauder or a derivative of one every year. Can't break that, wont break that.

I think the Thresher would have been a better choice. I was looking through the Technical Readouts the other day and looked at the Hellfire. "Oh this mech is so damn ugly PGI will never use it." Guess I was wrong hehe. Looks like it might have some flimsy side torsos. Gonna need ARMOR quirks PGI...not structure.

The Hellfire is a retrofitted lupus. When the lupus was redesigned they gave up the omni design. Might be a good idea to have a clan star adder paint job as part of the hellfire challenge.

An excellent choice with this mech!

Regarding the mechpacks. We used to get mech modules and now with the skill tree redesigned they are no longer there. Could there be a base pack of GSP given as early adopter rewards offered in lieu of the modules? It would be a simple matter of substituting the value of two old modules and converting it into a supply pack of GSP.

Every player has there own play style - is there the possibility of allowing players that purchase a collectors pack to assign which variant they prefer as the special?

Let's see... HLF-C can run 4x6SRM-6A+4 tons ammo, 4xERMed, 360XL (Can run up to 120+with MASC II, if my math's right), 14 DHS. +Endo+Ferro.

Good competitor against the Linebacker, all things considered; Faster in a pinch, but maybe not as durable unless it somehow gets armor quirks.

I am looking forward to this. When I was a teen I remember getting the field manuel Crusader Clans and this was one of the mechs inside it. I found the picture terrible but when used on TT this was a monster. I remember using it as my mech in some MechWarrior rpg games as well. Thanks for the nostalgia PGI can't wait to drop in this!

If only heavy lasers in MWO we're half as good as in TT though.

True, hopefully it will be a tough mech and add some flavor with burst damage and then use masc to fade back and cool and then keep being a general pain in the *** for the other team.

Nah, Iwould have had to buy the Thresher due to it being a CHH mech no matter how bad it was. With this one I can buy it based solely on its merits. Posted Image Or not!

No ballistics, but there's enough different options with missiles and lasers to make this good.
Sides are probably easy to pop, but it looks like it will have a nice "armpit gap" for shots to miss in, like the Centurion has.

Laser pistols vs bracers would have been nice, but there's probably a good reason. I think?

I would want to know maneuverability before I buy, although MASC probably will help.

Not an IS mech so will skip. Guess I can, just buy the Solaris 7 pack. It has 5 mechs I kinda want. Looking forward to the next month announcement. Its going to be an IS medium for sure.

Kinda sucks there's NO ballistic hardpoints unless you buy the Hero (which I never do).

I would have preferred another IS 'mech for my collection, honestly.

We already got the flea. I actually pre-ordered the flea and this is the first and probably last time that I'm actually gonna buy a full-fledged mech pack.
