I will look forward when they get into the story.  It had nice preview of things to come.

Me and a friend were talking about this last night. Looks very good and I can’t wait to see more.

Looking amazing, loving the subtle nods to MW3, MechCommander and Shortpainter's older fan animation.

Just make sure to keep those declaimers very visible. We had 1 fan animation die a early death some years ago when the animator asked for funds before saying 'oh yeah, MW owned by M$' (at least, that's how the layers saw it when a cease and desist was dropped)     

Just noticed this was the same crew that did the Phoenix Legion some years back for a MWO fan art contest, still one of my favorite videos.

Their dialogue writing needs work, it seems like they just sprinkled in military-sounding phrases with no understanding of their meaning. Not that I expect 100% accuracy but it's distracting. Already gave them that feedback on reddit though.

I like the pirate Locust pilot putting his feet up. 2:20 mark: "So you have chosen death."

Looks good. I like how Tex of Blackpantslegion is voicing the lead.

Animation for characters looks good. I just hope they got permissions straight.
