Isn't there supposed to be a variant with ballistics in both STs?

I've got another question. If we go with the MW5 pre-order, do we get the Early Adopter rewards for the Marauder II as well?

So... Why is the upcoming "Marauder II" Chassis using the same "MAD-" prefix designation as the "Original 'Marauder' Mech" Chassis??? Why are we not prefixing with "MAD2-" instead, as to prevent confusion between the two Chassis and the Weight Class which each belongs in??? This really makes far worse than no sense to me!!! :blink:

~D. V. "This really needs clarification... Shouldn't each Chassis have its' own prefix designation???" Devnull

So we got the MAD-4HP instead of the canon MAD-4H (9M vs 11M) but why not just give us the MAD-4K instead of inventing another variant, and rename the MAD-4HP as the PGI Hero?

Because BattleTech - pretty much the reason for most a lot of stupid things in game.

Spellcheck OP plz nerf.

Good hitboxes, but until PGI stops nerfbatting assault mobility and jumpjets, I will not be driving this. "Looks pretty but drives like a garbage truck" isn't enough for me.

Stinger/Wasp pack? Yeah, I'd drop $20-$30 on that.

Does anyone who buys the MW:5 preorder/MAD II pack also qualify for the early adopter rewards that have been showing up on the 'mech packs (and which I assume will be part of the MAD II packs in once it goes on preorder)?

Is there a time limit for this pre-order
...or whatever was asked...

For this Community Pre-order YES.

Is that time limit listed somewhere that I missed? Want to know how long I have to make a decision on which pre-order pack to get.

Honestly, I don't think we need more Marauders even though they're a great mech. However, if they would have made the Urban Mech IIC as the pre-order bonus for MW5 I would have pre-ordered for sure. This unfortunately does not entice me to buy.


^^^ Yes, this ^^^ We really need the Urbie IIc

if you are not interested in MW5, you can still pre-order the Marauder II the regular way.
I don't see why you have to be so upset because PGI offers good value for those who are interested in both games, while they try to make some amends for loyal customers and for neglecting MWO due to MW5.


True, but what we are worried about is if MW5 bombs or doesn't get a good start we will see "you can only get this through MW5" for future goodies to push MW5 sales. Just seen it happen to other games.

Hey Mat

I was reading over the 5a and I found something curious, the right torso has CASE, yet the right torso, right leg and right arm do not have any ammo. Only the left torso has ammo and should have CASE; it isn't going to help if it isn't in the torso with the ammo. Something to pass up the chain to fix before the big release page is launched.

My favorite aspect of the Marauder 2 shown here?

They put the Freaking Barrel on TOP.
Finally.

Just doesn't look right if it isn't on top.


This shows it alot better.

Why would anyone buy anything more for this game when it is going to be mothballed once you release MWM5 (even though it feels like it already has been)? I know that is making an assumption. However, PGI hasn't addressed any serious issues plaguing MWO at the moment. They haven't released a new map since last year, failed at designing most of the game modes, released half-arsed modeled mech packs with terrible movement, weapons geometry, and hit boxes. Not to mention the game still runs on a 10 year old graphics engine.

In my experience nobody presses play.

Does that model have a Gauss Rifle?

Nope lbx10
Case is on the wrong side.

So the 4HP having 9 missile hardpoints and 170 rocket tubes is a-ok, but the Thanatos and Fafnir heroes had to be pruned down from 9 hardpoints and 90 tubes/10 and 100? I don't get this company.


Will find a reason to complain about anything....

I really wanted to get the ultimate pack with MW5... but that RT which can be shot from 360 degrees will make this a really hard mech to play.


Just like any other Marauder or even the Blood Asp. What about the Thunderbolt, the Summoner, and the Warhammer? Asymmetric builds have this issue.

well.. the design looks ace, as usual Posted Image

not convinced of the ingame value besides looks, though. also and totally related:
mw5-preorder? and linked to a marauder-preorder? and already?

there's a bitter taste in there, to be blunt.


Read carefully: Marauder pre-order is coming soon, but if you want to pre-order the Marauder with the MW5 pre-order, you may. And you are pre-ordering MW5 to get beta access. It's $49.99 more for the pre-order if you get the Ultimate. What is the bitter taste?

Now the gun needs to follow the arms.

Also, quick question. If you pre-order the Marauder 2. Lets' say the ultimate version. After that you pre-order the $120 MW5 edition. Does that give you effectively 2 MAD-4A(S)s two Heroes, and effectively two complete packages? Since I believe there is a hard limit of one package per account.

I would love another MAD-3R(S) and would shell out for another collectors pack and gift it to myself if they could be stacked. I'm just wondering about that is all. Since if you could only get one would it get refunded if you pre-order MW5?
