The people attacking Tex are the same people that attacked Arch, and are doing it for the same reasons.
You know who they are, the ones that have been lifelong fans but can't tell you anything about it.
The ones that love the setting but can't wait to change it.
The ones that infiltrate these communities for the sole purpose of destroying them.
It was only a matter of time until they came for BattleTech and its content creators.

In this exact case I think it's more that they're attacking Tex because he's now vaguely associated with Arch, who they really really really hate for various dubious reasons.

How dare they talk BattleTech and Warhammer and general geekery! FFS, I didn't hear anything objectional in that talk, but it would take you an hour and a half to listen to it and who has time for that? Get to the brigade and start downvoting!

it was never about love, it was never about passion it was about power and hurting other people.

love tex and I really love the lore with it. still not a fan of the warhammer. could make it work on the table top but it seemed a bit under armored and with the MGs and SRMs a bit too prone to ammo explosions.

Well, the MGs are nice for CQB when there's so much pesky infantry around. Also: update it with CASE?

My preferred mod drops the MGs and dumps that and the weight of that ammo into armor and a makes the SRM-6 a 4 in exchange for making the small lasers into medium lasers.

Almost broke the bank in Mercenaries 5 grabbing a T-Bolt and a Warhammer early. Ripped out the machine guns and the SRMs for armor and Medium lasers as others have mentioned, and my wingman still takes out the trash with it long after the T-Bolt got retired to backup duty.

I saw forty five minutes of the video before I had to go to work and didn't learn a thing about the Warhammer mech yet. It's an amazing video so far.

Who knew the Age of the Warship and the twenty year long conflict between the SLDF and Taurian Concordant or whatever could be so engrossingly relevant?

I can't wait to see a video on those topics!
