1st!

thanks for the surprise release PGI

The Longbows without any missiles in the arms remind me of pod racers from Star Wars Phantom Menace

Wiiiiide.

Idk, couple of those variants sound like they would be hilarious MRM barfers.

Hardpoint inflation tho.

Arms so big it might be XL safe simply because from the side angles you're losing those arms before torsos.

Releasing *the* iconic Inner Sphere LRM carrier mech with the current state of LRM's effectively being nerfed to the point of virtual uselessness in comparison to literally every other weapon in the game. That's a bold move Cotton. Will it work out?

Called it. Posted Image As soon as I saw it show up in MW5. It's nice to see, for sure.

Okay, I just noticed: all of these builds are 1 ton heavy. (They're failing to account for the sudden lack of CASE weight in MWO). I appreciate that some effort was made to make Clan and IS tech exactly the same, removing any and all differentiation between the two technological bases, or any reason to pick one over the other beyond pure aesthetics, but the stock builds, when drawn from the record sheets, should remain faithful to the record sheets, and let the player base crap on the builds on their own, without doing so for them.

Ordered the whole thing but only got the special/hero. I think a few other people have had the same issue.

Email support, but I think they might have a general fix in place and are pushing them out again.

With how profoundly broken LRMs, and lock on weapons are in general, releasing an iconic LRM mech?

And really, we are well past time to drop the ridiculous IS LRM min range. They already take up more space and twice the weight of Clan.

Ha Ha Ha, that thing looks absurd!

I loved the Longbow in other Battletech games but this thing looks like it should have LRM60 in each arm!

Hopefully an LRM mech pack means a very soon upcoming LRM set of improvements so they can suck less.

MWO maps themselves already slap down LRM users hard anyways - time to give the weapon system some life again if people are to pay up to use this mech.

Stealth addition! But we should have known that it would drop sometime. It was added to MW5, after all.

with the exception of the hero, i'm not really seeing any hardpoint inflation here. it's very comparable to the stalker.

This is an awesome mech, and I think they did a great job with the design. Not sure if it will outshine the Stalker, being as wide as a fafnir, but I love it anyway.The face looks so much like a walrus! Please please please release a set of bolt-on downward-pointing walrus tusks for this guy!
