Quote from Warzel_Drake
Just to clarify most (i will not count all a few do fit ) of the mechwarrior games are not in fact cannon battletech. It is commonly considered an alternate time line at the very least. They use the same tech and characters but there is in fact a separation. The mechwarior timeline is not synchronous and the game makers have modified key events, simply because the studio decided to take a slightly different direction. This timeline separation is one of the driving forces behind the reboot movement. I will grant you that they are close but you could claim the same thing about robotech, or were you not aware that battletech had LAMs?
I do personally enjoy the Mechwarrior games but I have a true passion for the battletech table top game. Hence why I personally could care less what direction you all plan to take I would still do anything possible to see your project succeed.
I think we will be going more akin to the Mechwarrior 3/4 pc games or even the mechwarrior online. I myself preferred the newer versions with the more militaristic mechs rather than the anime esk ones they originally had. I want a mech to look like a warmachine not a pansy ass anime gundam.
