I'm sorry but am I missing something here? Nonexistant quirks for a mech with large, lowslung, widespread arms that contain most of the hardpoints, mediocre to lower agility, and its only perk is carrying masc? With an incoming PTS that signals major clan laser nerfs, which is the only weapon that this mech could dangerously pack, outside of the hero?

If you are never going to "fix" Clan UAC jam chances and jam duration then more of the Clan Mechs that only have one or two ballistic hardpoints or the weight capacity to only carry one or two UACs should get jam chance reduction quirks too.

Thank you for reading and considering this suggestion.

WTF No quircks? Hey its a Clan Mech. He needs massive ones to have a chance against the IS Meta Mechs.

Whoever did the modeling did a good job. Now that I see it in 3d I kind of want it.

None or minimal quirks...possible incoming nasty clan laser nerf...huge side torsos that don't shrink even with no missile pods mounted!

Nope nope nope. Was really hoping for decent quirks to make up for those really low arm mounted weapons (up to 6 hardpoints down low) and huge side torsos. This isn't a friggin' omnimech, it's a battlemech...WHERE are the quirks?? Even the ones that do exist...which are only on certain variants...are so miniscule that they are basically inconsequential.

Very disappointed.

I will be, and others should be, holding off spending real money on this. There will of course, as always, be a select few who charge up daddy's credit card for this on day one regardless, but I'm fairly certain that PGI is going to miss a whole hell of a lot of sales due to the above combination of low mounts, tiny/no quirks, and possible incoming weapon nerfs. That is a one-two-three KO punch right there, and I sure as hell ain't gonna spend money on THAT.

Mech looks kinda cool though, so good job there...

For the size comparison, could we get side pictures like we used to?

For example: https://mwomercs.com...iranha-jan-23rd

I understand we will still have the fisheye effect, but it really would be useful for better seeing the size comparisons.

Unless the proposed defanging of Med Lasers doesn't go through, I'm gonna have to pass. Sorry.

It's not set in stone TO go through.

That's like saying "I don't want to go outside because i might get hit by lightning" on a sunny day.

Pff, wow, I just had a moment on the Hellfire pre-order page since it says "Pack will be shipped on the 24th". I almost thought they decided to give us a huge advance preview!

You ARE missing something here. The usual PGI policy of giving the middle finger to clans. I mean, they are releasing a laser boating mech the same week they cram a blanket C-laser nerf down our throats are they not?

Well of course the aesthetics are well executed, this is a studio made up of artists and little else after all, no matter how much they try to disguise themselves as "developers"...

or this. This particular variant has 2 hmed and 2 hsmall. I get that canonically the Hellfire has a large left torso laser, but this one aint it. The left torso houses either hmeds or hsmall lasers, neither of which really lend to something that would need to have such vulnerable geometry. Hopefully it is dynamic and scales, and esp hopefully this weird layout gets tweaked before release.

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

but a battle mech, and thus much better IMO.\

And the laser torso hardpoints look funny because of the fish lens view i think...

It's just a PTS. It doesn't mean that these changes will DEFINETLY be applied to the live sever.

So what happened with posting the live stream archive?

It's been over 9 hours and you have all left the office by now.

"ARCHIVE WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY!"

Wat.
