Greetings MechWarriors!

I hope you enjoy these little updates and teases as much as we enjoy putting them together! The team (with the help of the Cauldron) is putting a lot of hard work into the game. Event Queue Request Queue is a cool new thing and we are getting the next free mech event together while we get this patch ready to ship.

As always we look forward to hearing your feedback.
The MechWarrior Online Team.


You will get the full loadout details on the new Legends in the MWO Patchnotes due out on Feb 16th
and the Patch will be released on Feb 20th.

BLACK KNIGHT RED REAPER II LEGEND




"Once the Onyx came out, all anyone could think about was the Red Reaper. Both Cauldron and the player base. Immediately we began working on it, though one thing we realized was that the hard points on the original Red Reaper wouldn't quite cut it in MWO. So we started work on the Red Reaper II, a rebuilt version of the iconic mech that kept the shield but gave it the awesome firepower it deserves. To top it all off, it probably has one of the best warhorns so far." " - Tiyos


WARHAWK KASAI LEGEND




"The Warhawk Kasai is an homage to one of my favorite MWO artists, jjm1. Those who have been around for awhile have probably seen his art of the Gunslinger, Dragon Fire, Pillager, and plenty of other amazing hero mech skins on DeviantArt. His stuff is just too cool to not have in MWO, so when we decided to do a Warhawk I knew exactly the look I wanted it to have. I know it's probably been a long time since he's played Mechwarrior, but if you're reading this jjm1 feel free to send anyone at PGI a message and we'll hook you up with a Kasai. I hope we can bring more of your artwork to life in MWO." - Tiyos

NEW WEAPONS

"Work on the new weapons continues, Cauldron has finalized the stats and we are now in the final testing phase and finalizing sounds. Keep an eye out for a preview in the next few weeks!" - Tiyos



FINALLY

MechWarrior 5 DLC 6 Announcement is coming soon ™ with another wishlist campaign to get currency in MWO for wishlisting DLC 6 on your fav platform or PC Store.

The new legendary mechs look awesome! Whoever designed the visuals for the legendary mechs (I believe it is tiyos but I am not 100% sure) did an amazing job!

I am very excited to see the quirks and hardpoints for the new legendary mechs.

I know what I want: Dire Wolf Widowmaker.

And don't give that bull about the Warhammer being the Widowmaker. It's not!

True. She piloted a Warhammer, but the Dire Wolf is one and true ride. I'd love to have it.

I mean, you can't get more legendary than that. Besides, she was killed by Joanna of Clan Jade Falcon while piloting the Widowmaker. C'mon, PGI, Gimme my Widowmaker, please.

We aren't getting it. It doesn't add any new hardpoints, so there wouldn't Even be a reason for it

Definitely anxious to see the loadout on the Kasai. As I am a mainly clan player, I can respect the DCMS for admiring the awesomeness that is the Warhawk. (Not going to lie, probably changing the paint scheme but who knows maybe I will rock it).

The Reaper looks straight up awesome. Kudos to the artist, it will be an instant buy for me because of looks alone.

If: "... every man has his price!", then You just met mine.
One Reaper to go, please ...
... don't bother to wrap it, I'll just 'eat' it here ...

As an old 'sword-&-board' guy, I gotta tell ya, you're half way there!
But, P*L*E*A*S*E tell me it's just the artwork, and
You are NOT gonna force me to use this left-handed! lol

How is it reasonable for the Red Reaper to get 11 weapon hardpoints? There is no Black Knight that has more than 9 weapon hardpoints. And then it also has a shield on top of that.

This can't even be blamed on lore since in lore the Red Reaper only has 6 weapon hardpoints plus the sword and shield. Inflating it to 8 weapon hardpoints like BL-6-KNT and the BL-7-KNT-L would make sense. It still does have a shield, so going to 9 like the Partisan would be too much. Going to 11 AND the shield is ridiculous.

It should be apparent to anyone by now that all of the Legendary 'Mechs represent both power creep and pay-for-advantage. At the rate they are coming out, it can be assumed that PGI is making quite a bit of $ from these.

On one hand, I don't like the power creep and paid advantage aspects, but on the other hand I understand that the profits they provide is helping to keep this game that I love so much going after all these years. It is what it is.

These new mechs look awesome!

"How is it reasonable for the Red Reaper to get 11 weapon hardpoints? There is no Black Knight that has more than 9 weapon hardpoints. And then it also has a shield on top of that."

The number of hardpoints is a bit steep, but the number of slots and the tonnage stay the same- and the shield eats both. I don't think the Reaper is going to be massively OP.

Just massively cool.

On the contrary it does:

RA; 2 Energy
LA: 2 Energy.

So, yes, it does add hardpoints. As for the Torsos, those remain the same as any other Dire Wolf as per all other variants, except for the Dire Wolf B.

You know, PGI, I will buy any DLC you release for MW5. Keep them coming! (hopefully, we will get a Solaris DLC at some point)
