Was a sure-buy for me two weeks ago.

Today, after all these planned clan weapon nerfs? Forget about it...

My original plan was to wait to see what the quirks were for this before buying a standard plus other stuff. With the proposed Clan evergy changes though, nope, I'm not touching new clan mechs.

Far as I am aware no, its just a second line mech that cropped up later on in BT and was dug up by pgi.

it's the testbed mech for Heavy Lasers. first one to ever carry them.

Already the 10th and no new mech pack up for pre-order? Did something go wrong?

those historically don't show up until after the upcoming mech is released. likely next week friday.

should be interesting to see what the next IS mech is though. i'm hoping for another unseen, or maybe even an IS Omni.

I bought the Standard pack so I can run an LB20X and some SRMs on a 60 ton battlemech. The laser changes don't mean anything to me. The only thing that would convince me to refund at this point is if its agility is absolutely garbage, or if it has negative quirks.

This guy has the right idea! And you are in luck, negative quirks are not a thing since last update.

Wrong. New mechs are usually announced right before the ending of the Early Rewards, meaning, at the very start of the month. Wait, I can prove it:

03/aug/2017: Thanatos standalone pack revealed.
01/sep/2017: Hellspawn standalone pack revealed.
02/oct/2017: Piranha standalone pack revealed.
01/nov/2017: Black Lanner standalone pack revealed.
09/dec/2017: Sun Spider standalone pack revealed.
05/jan/2018: Fafnir standalone pack revealed.
01/feb/2018: Blood Asp standalone pack revealed.
01/mar/2018: Flea standalone pack revealed.
04/apr/2018: Hellfire standalone pack revealed.
01/05/2018: Vulcan standalone pack revealed.
01/06/2018: Incubus standalone pack revealed.

Really, they announce a blanket nerf to clan lasers the previous week to releasing a laser boating clan mech. Only PGI can outpgi PGI.

MASC = Fantastic agility, and no it wont have any negative quirks.

Unfortunately I still spent money for the Hellfire and the IncubusI WISH I would not have done it due to the Clansnerf.
And I swear by everything that is sacred to me that was the last money PGI got from me.

If I do bad work I will not pay in free market economy so why should PGI be paid (by me).

Nerfs? Are you referring to the unconfirmed adjustments that are being applied to the public test server (i.e. the adjustments that haven't yet; and may not be, implemented in their current form on the live servers)?

Knowing how **** usually works they'll tone them down a bit but still roll out that **** instead of looking for a good solution.

The"nerf" is a pts only as of yet. Pgi ussauly listdns when people give feed back. With the origanal skill tree pts the nearly halved the cost. So try it give your feedback so they can work with it. That is what i am going to do.

Also keep in mind that they are gone drop some heat on the majority of the lasers wich limmis dps more than overal damage.

Not "The Hell Fork."

Or even, "The Little Devil."

Hey guys, these are like the first two since Resistance 1 I believe that don't have "The" leading the title. The only others are the Founders ones if memory serves me well.


How about 'KFS' (knife, fork, spoon)
or KFC Spork?

There's a large BUT in there.. yes they are lowering the heat along with damage. There is a post in another tread about this But, they have made clan lasers more heat insufficient....

Some are even at not even a damage per heat.

I realized it's in potential a 60 ton linebacker or blacklanner. Now I'm at least slightly curious.

You are correct about them being unconfirmed, but we will also not buy anything clan until we get a for real answer. Not spending money just in case it does happen.
