I can't imagine them making any changes to the vehicle system. They are trying to cash in on all the people who loved the old rules. Changing them would only alienate old time gamers.

Just look at the new Necromunda rules, 99% of the rules are unchanged. But the 'improvements' they added were awful and uncalled for, they divided the already small fan base for the game. End result, Necromunda is struggling more than ever.

In the table top game and role-playing game, do mechs take the same ridiculous amount of damage before they die as they do in the video game?

Only in the original version, "3025"... By "3050" (ie, the Clans), the technology actually works, and the mechs are machines that perform their function....which completely ruins the game!! Battletech was about machines that DIDN'T work well, but they were all that was available... St00pid Clans...

In conversations about this, I put both my arms in front of my body in a circle, covering my face to the person with whom I'm speaking, and I say, "There is nothing beyond the Inner Sphere..."

Nah, you've confused me.
Referring to the role-playing and/or tabletop game: It originally took a dozen heavy weapon hits to kill a mech but it doesn't anymore? Or, it originally took less than a dozen heavy weapon hits to kill a mech, but it takes a dozen or more now?

Well, the reason the mechs are so hard to kill is tthat they usualy have AT LEAST 1/4 of their weight in armor[at least mine on the computer do...]Also, that as you damage them, they damage you. So it gets long and drawn out.

The former.... From 3025 to 3050, the damage dealt went up by ~50% per weight (some more, some less), but the effectiveness of armor only went up 12% (20% for clans). Plus, tech upgrades upped the amount of free weight available for weapons, but there was no such increase of the amount of armor one can mount--it just weighs less...allowing more free weight for weapons, like I said.

Not to bring up the past here, but I did a search for this topic instead of just creating a new one...

Anyone here play this now and anyone near my neck of the woods?

I just moved to Denver in January '07.

Not exactly close.

I still have all....correction, about HALF, of my books, and I just found a folder with a buttload of photocopied blank mech sheets.

So I *would* play :)
