Why are western mechs so much better than japshit clown ninja "mechs"?
>>
>>138846742
Rule of cool, dude.
Also western mecha are walking tanks, eastern mecha are walking planes.
>>
>>138846742
Western mech are complete shit, they look like walking washing machines.
If I wanted "realistic" designs I wouldn't watch mecha.

I can quote Wikipedia too. Oh look I win.
>>
>>138846742
Isn't the "western" mech from macross?
>>
I find that western mechs have their weapons built-in, while eastern mechs are robots with weapons built separately.

Eastern mechs can equip a variety of weapons, such as guns, swords, axes, cannons, etc. Whereas with western mechs, they ARE the guns.
>>
>>138847655
I somehow never noticed how they even kept the macross insignia on it.
>>
>>138846742
The design on the right is stolen from Macross m8

Japan does ALL types of mecha designs. The only westerners that can match up are the old sci-fi conceptualists, not poor copies of Japan trash like Battle Tech and Mech warrior.

That's patently false and one of the dumbest things I've read all week. Don't talk about things you don't know about.
>>
>It’s an undeniable fact that FASA, in their early editions of Battletech spanning from 1984 to around 1996, contained copied designs for their battlemechs from a variety of mecha Animes. In the first edition of Battletech (AKA BattleDroids), the Stinger, Shadow Hawk, Archer, Griffin, Warhammer, Phoenix Hawk, Marauder, Crusader, Wasp, Rifleman and Merlin were all designs lifted wholesale from Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Fang of the Sun Dougram and Crusher Joe. There wasn’t a single original design from the first edition: they were all borrowed.

Wrong, motherfucker.
>what happened was that a guy, I think somewhere in rural, continental America, but definately in America, drew up the designs for some Mecha, then he sold the designs to both companies at roughly the same time (he sold them first to FASA, then later to the Macross people). When the Japanese company found out about FASA having the same designs in their game, they sued, and FASA basically just gave up on the few 'Mechs it would mean letting go of.

FASA officially licensed the designs from their respective Japanese owners because if you're going to make a game about giant robots, who better to turn to that the Japanese? Harmony Gold also licensed the Macross franchise at about the same time.
FASA sued Hasbro for using Macross imagery they hadn't licensed to sell toys; FASA believed they were owed compensation for images they essentially legally owned in the United States. Although FASA won the litigation, they never got any money from it. They feared that potential litigation from the use of licensed designs could potentially bankrupt their little company, so they decided to cease using all licensed designs. Eventually, they decided to stop using any design they didn't own all the rights to, such as designs that were original creations for BattleTech but which rights were held by the creator or a third party.
All in all, Harmony Gold had nothing to do with FASA's licensing problems.
In the end, we get a superior end product, like the new redesign of the Marauder/Glaug/Officer's Battle Pod mech.

>>
>>138848589
>Mechs
I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as a Mech, is in fact, メカニカル, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Mecha. Mecha is not a genre unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning concept made manifest by the existence of vehicles, military equipment and of course, robots, comprising a full concept as defined by MAHQ.

Many posters use a modified definition of the メカニカル term every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of メカニカル which is widely used today is often called Mech, and many of its posters are not aware that it is basically the Robotech term, developed by Harmony Gold.
So unless you're talking about Battletech specifically please refer to Giant Robots as "Mecha"
>>
>>138848674
nigga robotech was made in japan but it was owned by an american company that's why they could sell it to 2 different parties
>>
>>138848104
>BattleTech
>compact fusion engines
>electrically actuated contracting fibers
>FTL travel and communication
>hyperlight materials
The general idea of BattleTech is that while the materials have gotten lighter, their bulk and size really hasn't. More space to add more armor and larger weapons gives it a tactical advantage over a small footprint tank, which can only mount limited armor and weapons. Yes, the target is bigger, but the smaller weapon platforms are hard pressed to bring to bear enough firepower to take it down before they are destroyed themselves.
The most massive mechs in BattleTech weigh in at 100 tons and are considerably bigger than modern main battle tanks, which typically weigh between 50 and 70 tons.
>>
>>138848727
you stupid? robotech the anime (AKA macross) was made in japan after the american designs were sold to them, then later HG bought the rights to it, but FASA already had the rights to the same designs before HG bought the robotech rights

I always found the battletech mech designs laughable as fuck. Their proportions are all wrong and their overall look is just goofy.

That artist they have working at PGI is the one redeeming part of that company. Is redesigns are amazing. They're instantly recognizable as the source mech, while having a cohesive look and theme AND they look good.

Only problem is a few too many mech lookalikes.

>what happened was that a guy, I think somewhere in rural, continental America, but definately in America, drew up the designs for some Mecha, then he sold the designs to both companies at roughly the same time (he sold them first to FASA, then later to the Macross people). When the Japanese company found out about FASA having the same designs in their game, they sued, and FASA basically just gave up on the few 'Mechs it would mean letting go of.

Vertical space. A biped design can accommodate a lot of upper mass in a small footprint in a way that a wheeled or treaded vehicle could not.

I love my AL for sure. I have like 500 000 accumulated XP on it, I don't know how many hundreds of games I've played with it.

But the AH packs a hell of a punch, and there's few things more satisfying than tagging a running light with the AC/420 and watching them crumple or rocket into a wall.

That's actually a plus, I use that time to watch anime and read mango. I'm usually only active for a minute or two in a mach but I can still get a few kills and shit out 500+ damage consistently.

I really wish Gundam had anything like the thread mech deign that AC had. Instead of all the guntanks having shitty gatling guns and top cannons. Although honestly at this point I just want some form of guntank to come back.

The basic strategy is to not get hit. Since they won't survive a Destroyer ramming anyway or being able to disengage a swarm. Other than lasers, there's no other projectiles for BETA.

That's everyone's basic strategy, but it doesn't always work like that so you slap some armor on yourself to make sure you don't get killed if something manages to land a hit.

Not exactly true.
The designs of the toylines they rehashed into the first two years, yes, but Floro Dery is Filipino, and was responsible for the TV only characters, as well as the movie characters and some of season 3 (until he got fired and his assistants took over)
Check out Floro's concept art some times. It's remarkably western.

No amount of armor will actually help against getting hit by a Destroyer, considering the pilots will always be facing hundreds of them and just stumbling from getting grazed will get you stomped in a few seconds. Armor doesn't really do much against Laser class unless there's so much of it that the mech can't even move.
>>
Western mechs are shit because they take themselves seriously. Any mech franchise that takes them seriously is trash. There is absolutely no niche that a mech fills in the context of modern warfare.
