Done.

Although, after that jab, I really should have made it "KING OF WEAK STYLE"...

Even if Clan Wolf is superior to Clan Jade Falcon *hides*

Oh no you didn't!

I mean, I could point out that Clan Jade Falcon won the War of Refusal, but they did so with a deception which is, um... Dishonorable. So, um... Damn it, I got nuthin'. ><

Clan Wolf is superior.

Now, those might be the only two clans I know because they were the only two clans in the one mechwarrior game I had growing up.

But that doesn't mean that Clan Wolf isn't superior.

Because it is.

You're just jealous because Clan Wolf is superior and Clan Jade Falcon isn't :P

Oh, and lo and behold, a miracle has occurred:

Mir and I actually, genuinely, agree on something... :o

My first time playing Mechwarrior 2 I favored the Wolves over the Falcons because to my childish mind at the time I thought they were the good guys and the Falcons were the bad guys. Mostly because the cutscenes made it sound that way. Then I started reading the books and I began to understand that there were no good guys or bad guys, just different points of view. It was my very first foray into a fictional world where things weren't just black and white. This wasn't Link versus Ganon, Mega Man versus Dr. Wily or Frodo versus Sauron. There's a whole helluva lot of gray in this world and I think that's why I found it so fascinating. The good guys didn't always win and the bad guys weren't always bad.

Also, my love for the Jade Falcons came from the very first book series I read in the Battletech universe, the Legend of the Jade Phoenix trilogy. To me in all the books dealing with the Wolf Clan the characters always felt like stereotypical good guys. Maybe not everyone agreed with their Khan's point of view, but his attitude towards protecting the Inner Sphere rather than destroying it was stuff I'd seen before. The Jade Falcon characters were more interesting to me not because they were good or bad but because they were good and bad in different ways. Plus, I think the Falcons embodied the Clan ideals better than the Wolves... Or at least most of them did. Elias Crichell was a ****stain and he got the fate he deserved. :mad1:

To be fair, I just liked the Clan Wolf icon better - and the fact that my brother was a Jade Falcon adherent only made me more of a Clan Wolf adherent :P

Anyway, we are so far off topic, I think that's Huntress over there *points*
