Hello all,

I've earned enough MC during the last few events to afford a Clan heavy/assault hero when they go on sale for 50% off, which happens often enough. I generally lean towards brawly IS mechs, but I have a few Clan rides and can adjust my play style to suit.

My top choices are the Deathstrike, Scorch, Warrant and Esprit de Corps. I already have the Virago.

The Deathstrike is tempting for Gauss/laser vomit, but I can build a poor man's DS with the MCII-1 which I already own. The Scorch is supposed to be a great mech but I wonder if I'll get better value out of a Clan omni since they offer so many choices of pods.

Looking forward to your opinions.Posted Image

Good hunting,
CFC Conky

All are solid picks, except Timby IMO.

The Scorch is a one-trick pony, but there are only two mechs that is able to replicate it (kinda): MCII-2 at the cost of getting bunny ears and Highlander IIC Keeper (will be much slower). No omnimech can be as fast and carry this setup with good enough hitboxes for a brawl.

Ebon Jag hero is good, has unique ST omnipod and is IMO better than timby (same speed, same tonnage capacity for guns, smaller, lighter). IMO Timby now is outshined by Ebon Jag and Sun Spider (unless you are a huge fan of token JJs).

Blood Asp hero = no ECM, as the hardpoint for it is in CT and not in a hero one.

Own a Scorch, I have a love/hate relationship with it as it's a amazing brawler but the current meta is Nascar with a chance of Lurming that often leaves you singled out when you rush to get into range. Still a nice mech and other options for it if Clan LRMs and ATMs don't make you cringe (I do not endorse using the Scorch as anything more than a Brawler but Baradul does and he is a much better player than I am)

Ghillie with stealth, a gauss rifle and medium lasers. Daft, but you feel like a ninja.

Thanks for the suggestion guys, I already have the Ghillie, and I am looking specifically for a Clan Hero this time around. That said, keep those suggestions coming, IS and/or Clan Posted Image .

Good hunting,
