but only one note: when EVERY mech is too asymmetrical, it starts looking like they are builded from random spare parts
I do like the asymmetrical look, but I do agree with you, they are starting to look like they are put together from random parts. Now, I'm not an expert on lore, but from what I have picked up on here, there were a lot of different manufacturers, especially for weapons. I would think that more than one company made any particular mech, so maybe we are seeing a random assortment of different manufacturers parts. Like I said, I like the asymmetrical look, because I think it makes the mechs look like they have been through some tough battles. I would also like to be able to have a few mechs that had a matching set of parts, so it looked shiny and new.
