Is there a listing somewhere of all the mechs that have been given out by PGI? Would help in making a decision on which would be a good "free" future choice...

As for all the other stuff, I can only hope it begins to encourage brawling over Assault snipers...Posted Image

Seriously, to hell with Cauldron tryhards. All they ever want is more ERPPCs. The original weapon is something different (ranged Flamer basically), please do not ruin the fun of it.

My suggestions for the next free mech would be cicada, wolverine or arctic wolf.

The shield for the Black Knight is very fitting however the style SUCKS!!

Yeah, I get that it's for maximum coverage but you should have gone with a heater shield design.
Less coverage but it would look seriously cool!

Why cant youbring this in a game as actual omnimech pack?
  • Executioner-B Alternate Configuration C Another long-range sniper, the C is potentially even deadlier than the B, but crippling heat issues hamper this variant’s effectiveness. Mounting a total of four ER PPCs, two per arm, even the addition of four extra double heat sinks doesn’t bring this variant anywhere near heat efficiency. Additionally, each arm carries an Ultra AC/5 with a two-ton ammo magazine in its corresponding side torso. Somewhat questionably, the right torso also mounts two SRM-2s and two tons of ammo for them. BV (2.0) = 2,979[10]

What is the complaint here? It is an Omni-mech it just has a different engine than the regular Executioner.

Thank you for the update, some fun things coming.
I'd like to see some love given to the mechs you never see on the battlefield in quick play anymore for the giveaway mechs. Kintaro, Vindicator, Enforcer.


It's too bad I can only 'like' this post once!

While this comment is far from constructive, I will say I'm much more excited for the variety this will bring, and it will do some "heat" damage so that flavor is there.

Something that is essentially a long range flamer seems like something that has the potential to be very unfun.

"Essentially any 'Mech that has not been a free 'Mech before. Champion? Hellfire? Bushwacker or Black Lanner? Many possible Mechs."
Agree with that.

Thunderbolts sounds cool but need some hitpoints to withstand AMS fire. Maybe it should take same fire like 20 individual LRM missiles?

What about Chemical Lasers? Beam Laser sounds similar.

Will we get special ammo for ACs? Or special missiles? Maybe slug for LBX? We will get bunch of new ammo anyway :D


Never getting ammo switching

Hey PGI,

for february make a free

...custom Vindicator that's an op troll mech. I don't care what build it has, but make it funny, stupid, and USEFUL. lol
...a fast Mauler with 12 ballistic slots for machineguns and 4 slots for snub ppcs
or
...a ballistic boat Zeus (I havent touched these mechs in a long time so I feel they need love)

They are talking about for what is available. Not something new
if its just another free champion variant, it doesn't matter. Maybe make the challenge different this time. No Matchscore or damage requirement - but instead:
"Win a match with ALL JUMP JET SKILL NODES ACTIVATED on a mech build"
"Win a match with ALL QUICK IGNITION NODES USED"
"Win a match with ALL AUXILIARY NODES USED"
"Win a match with ALL MOBILITY SKILL NODES USED."

Plasma as cLPPC? May could work. We shall see.
Beam laser? Sure noone could found some better clan equipment? Moar lazorz fer lazorboatz, hellyeah b!tches!

Some free mech ideas:
Hellfire
Marauder 2
Corsair
Turkina (YES PLEASE!)
Shrike (MOAR THAN YES PLEASE!!!)
Vindicator
Blood asp (I have two but a third would be cool for HAGboat...)

I'd settle for just giving us the Turkina, even if it wasn't free.

Throw in the Kingfisher and you're 2 for 2. Maybe a lore expert can comment if there would be any place for a Kingfisher in the upcoming MW5 Clans and follow-on DLCs, but the Turkina for sure has a place in an CJF content going forward.

I am very pleased to see that we are getting more then what was initially teased, looking forward to mixing up some of my builds. As for Februarys mech of the month, I'm going to temper my expectations and request the Ice Ferret, it would be nice to see more medium representation, and I like the idea of a Ferret February.

The problem here it is that almost 100% that this mech cant use the Executioner omnipods because than this mech will be to op.
This mech is not the Executioner, this is the Executioner B. Absolut different omnimech from the lore.
This is not only slower because has lower engine,but this has no jump jets and Masc either.
So with the Executioner omnipods you can do a much more metamech from this one and from my experience MWO wont allow this , so you will stuck forever with that cofiguration only what on the mech.
Yes , you can change the ppcs to lasers etc.etc.but still not that good when you can the torsos omnipods to drop the useless misilles or anything.
Then why dont make the company the Summoner 2 clan omnimech as legendary too?
Absolut identical with the regular Summoner except the Summoner 2 has endo stell skeleton so you have 4 more tons space, which is huge gamechanger in the game.
So i dont think they will be so generous that let us use the regular Executioner omnipods on the so called legendary.
But we can hope.

I'm pretty sure the plan is that you can mix and match omni-pods, but this one does have 2JJ (instead of 4) according to sarna, and MASC will likely be locked to the CT, so no MASC but you can use the other Executioner Omni-Pods for hardpoints galore.
