This is DEFINITELY not what i was expecting...

It's also not a Crusader or an Argus, so i'm just confused at this point.

It appears to be some form of mech pack.

My immediate thought while looking at the hero was this:

Oh yes!
The Scarecrow is here! A bit less Scarecrow-y than i expected, but looks bloody great nonetheless! ( i only wish the face was jutting out a bit more, but it's gooooooood)

I mean, it looks nice, but kinda disappointing. I have a feeling the Cicada and Assassin kinda have the 40 ton slot well covered.

So a slow fireing support mech, kinda like the enforcer. It looks butt ugly, but, I kinda like it. One of the mechs could of used ecm. Will keep an eye on this one.

Actually pretty surprised by this choice. I was expecting either the Argus or Chimera.

My favorite mech from the 3025 book has finally happened.

Yeah, I liked this ugly thing.

Thank you PGI.

Could be worse...they could have used the hussar, whitworth, clint or hermes.

We're not going to get the Marauder II, Crusader, Stinger, Wasp, or Valkyrie until the PGI/HG lawsuit is resolved at least as far as derivative art is concerned. And for whatever illogical reason we're not getting the Hatamoto-Chi either, even though it has five ready to go variants in the lore and they'd just have to "invent" a hero. The IS side could really use another 85 ton assault as right now its a Battlemaster or a Stalker if you have that weight to fill in a drop deck for example.

They probably redesigned this mech for MW5, and we are getting to play around with it for MWO. its certainly not a mech I would have cared about, especially since we already have good 40t skirmishers already. But a 40t infantry murderer makes sense for MW5. Not so much for MWO, but I am sure a few people will enjoy running around with it.

It's like my second favorite 3025 mech. Posted Image (The first one is too obvious to even exclaim)

Pretty sure it's the first time it has ever made an appearance in a video game though (might be wrong, but i'm pretty sure that i'm not). Hoping the animation and modelling departments do it justice.

It's like a Night Gyr and a Javelin had an affair and this was the result... blech!

Hard points look horrible as well. Assassin and Cicada will run circles around this.... thing ....

Looks pretty useless outside of the 5T and hero. I guess we'll have to see the quirks, but right now it looks undergunned and heavily reliant on the fact it's built like a twig. I'm really surprised anyone actually asked for this thing when there are so many better options and tonnage brackets that could use filling out further. But I guess it is at least better than the Chimera, a mech so garbage that a Hellspawn is a definitive upgrade.

I'm confused, there were certainly some more popular IS medium choices in my poll...

You gave the Clans back their tonnage how about a good mech to make up for it. The IS is getting there butts kicked right now. Do you have something against the Inner sphere or what? Cant have a good IS mech with out getting it nerfed. The Assassin 21, Warhammer. Both doing good against the clans and then Boom nerf them can't have that. Waiting for the Annihilator nerf to come. Its doing to well against the Clans can't have that.
