If you played this game for quite a while, you will have a lot of good memories looking at loadouts of trial mechs.
However, PGI introduced a lot of tech in one big package: Rotary Autocannons, Non-large ER lasers, SSRM4/6 for IS, Null Signature system and, last but far from being least Light Fusion Engines. Quite a few of them became big game-changers. But trial mechs stayed the same, never adjusted for all the toys. Big chunk of possibilities can't be tapped by new players at all till they grind their own mechs.

I don't really see the reason why said players should be kept in the dark, never witnessing the RAC/Stealth builds and tasting LFE engine, providing mix of extra arms and speed with no insta-death on loss of single torso.

TL;DR version: PGI, give us RAC/Stealth/LFE/ER/ laser/Heavy streak trial mechs.

I see your point of view. I guess though that the idea could be that new pilots typically get the bottom of the stock pile because factions/units want to sponsor bigger known pilots. However, the cadet bonus really helps make up for it. I dunno, just be rambling on a bit.........
