I wanna thank you and all the people involved at PGI for gifting us this iconic mech as a popular part of so many people's BT-past! The visual adaptation / aesthetics are amazing (including the tube-switch into the STs that comes very natural without hampering the general look of the original design). Gonna admit that I am a little uncertain/reserved about the head/cockpit-section for now ... on the other hand and while keeping the 3025 / ReSeen artworks in mind, this - including the characteristic unicorn - certainly had been one of the harder parts to adapt properly (hitboxes? yikes!). Anyhow: amazing work, thanks again and be certain => full scale pack gonna be pre-ordered as soon as it comes up!

Since ye folks been flak'ed with a lot of negativity over the last couple of months (be that justified or not), let the positive vibes coming along with this new mech release sink in, be proud about it. Hope the revenue incoming via this pack will allow for further steps improving the gameplay experience.

And do not let anyone drag ye down in terms of this chassis not providing sorts of new flavour gameplay-wise, since with so many mechs and variants released, it becomes very hard to publish variants that offer loadouts unique in a specific weight class or in general without implementing new tech / weapons and not violating the original design. So betting on iconic lore-mechs certainly is the right horse to temporarily bet on for now.

Well done, comrades! O7



@Mark Nicholson: Could you provide us with a custom hero-variant of the crusader called "Unicorn" with a rainbow-/fancy-colored paint-job and a neighing sound on kill item in the not so distant future please? Make it a minor pack and collect the money!

With those arms, it has GOT to come with the ability to punch enemy mechs. And with those legs, maybe punt the smaller ones? Pretty please? Posted Image

Great!!
No apocryphal variants please.
I will only buy a pack if it contains only canon mech.
(There are at least 15 variants compatible with MWO equipement so no need to create a - P one, please.)

Ohh... I can't wait to field CRD-8S.

Quote

Created in 3066 with the mindset of "bigger is better", the 8S Crusader was built around an Endo Steel chassis and powered by an XL Engine. The 'Mech carried two LRM-10 launchers and two Medium Lasers but was also armed with the new Heavy Gauss Rifle, giving it great deal of close to medium range firepower.


Overall (along with incoming Hatchetman for Mw5), the Davion folks are literally exploding from such goodness... Posted Image

MWO doesn't have tabletop's split crititcals so any CRD-8S analog in MWO would be XL engineless. But then they have already moved the leg SRMs to the torso so most variants will be PGI's version of the tabletop ones anyway...

But I'm just happy to have another 'Mech off the The List done Posted Image

Look, I WILL get this. Even if it does look a bit too much like a Warhammer IIC in parts.

If there's a CRD-2R and a CRD-7L, I'm definitely preordering.

Also, surely we can't be allowed to have this - it wasn't EXPLICITLY included on the road map...
