Well... for one, there are the odd few BattleMechs that could possibly give a Clan player pause for at least a moment like the Banshee, Caesar and Katana. But Clan War players had those in TRO 3050. The Random Assignment and upgrade tables are capricious and brutal if you're not a Clanner, but we knew that already. The Com Guards are still around, but for all the good it does, a Thug is no Warhawk and we all know that.
You forget the Axman and Hatchetman.

In honor of the 25th anniversay of the greatest movie of all time*, I hereby reclaim my rightful name and rank in the New Avalon Cavaliers (formerly known as Team Banzai).
If see me at GenCon, find out if you're talented enough to join our ranks (I'll be the guy with the 'badges').

Heh... Much like what's going on with Forgotten Realms now, I had chosen to stop my BattleTech at 3065 and not fiddle with the 'new' tech like snubbies and such. I'm happiest when the most advanced tech on the table is Triple Strength Myomer. ;)

I love my clanner ER PPC...
In other news, the Tesla Pods will be at Gen Con this year, with updated Firestorm software that will include the 'Unseen' mechs they reacquired the rights to display. So you'll be able to fight in the 'old' Locusts, Phoenix Hawks, Warhammers and Atlases. :D
Oh, and in case you hadn't heard yet:

A Time of War is the title of the newest edition of the MechWarrior RPG. So far, it's still in development with no release date, but I'm thinking they will have something by Q4 or Q1 2010.
