looks like an ugly Frankenstein version of a larger hellspawn , all mounts look like they will either fall off or be shot off easily , fifteen heat sinks, current max is only ten are usable, unless they change things again....

Was hopping for a heavy or medium. Sadly I will never buy an Assult mech.

I like it. Its like the Thunderbolts Big brother. You remember him...standing on the porch.....drinking something out of a little brown paper bag. Did anyone else notice the Air Scoop and Stacks next to the Cockpit. If only flames could shoot out of the stacks when you throttle up. Maybe it will be an add on one day. Also, some very nice high hardpoints.

None of the interesting variants are the collectors or hero so I'll pass. If the 6R was the collectors I would have gotten the Collector's pack. If the 5T or 7R was the hero I would have gotten it. Missed opportunities...

I didn’t like the Hellspawn at all, neither am I an Ork fan (in 40k), but this one is different.

Did you notice that it seems to be built from a Marauder? The cockpit is suspicious.

I think you need to fix the front page. Gave me a giggle that's for sure. It has the Warhammer IIC text over the Corsair image.

I've bought every mech pack except one, and this is gonna make it two. Lots of good mech designs still out there that offer more than this in nostalgia or function, that dozer blade on the chest is just too much. Not telling you how to run your business but, *shrug* hopefully it sells well for you.

It looks cool, but its going to need some serious armor quirks to be remotely viable.

Quad ams should be good for a giggle.

So PGI FINALLY gives IS a mech with some countermeasures for LRM spam. Considering there are something over 80% LRM players, that is good I guess.

IS. Omnis. When?

Seriously, every BattleMech builds like every other BattleMech. This thing will either
A.) be a LRM boat
B.) run UACs and PPCs
C.) run Dual HGRs, or
D.) do Lasers and Gauss.

And they won't be doing any of those things differently than the existing options. IS Omnis, however, would change it up. Suddenly you have 10-12x energy builds available across the weight classes, giving new ways to build up damage that were not previously available while also providing new challenges to work around. The built in equipment also gives you, PGI, more leeway to quirk the 'Mechs to make them work in unique ways with the stock pods.

Every year, for the last three years, you have had this golden opportunity to do something new and interesting with your custom 'Mech and every year you blow it by doing something humdrum.

I haven't played in two months, because I'm bored. I wanted to see something exciting happening to make me want to play again and this? This is not it.

Looks like you have no idea what is happening in game. Here's a hint:

Still think it's a bad idea?

For some reason it says "Warhammer IIC" while showing the picture of the Corsair on the main page.
