MechWarrior Online PictureEdit
I was under the impression that the Roughneck was specifically canon. With a blessing from Catalyst and even a potential appearance in the upcoming Battletech strategy game. Though admittedly, I can't seem the exact point where this was declared. Apparently at some point during MechCon 2017? --R0sshk (talk) 16:09, 8 December 2016 (PST)
- Many people have indicated this to be the case at panel with Randal and Alex, but cannot locate eveb video of it or any other written confirmation by CGL, thus Sarna erroring on the side of caution.Cyc (talk) 16:19, 8 December 2016 (PST)
- Personally I am the opinion they should remain apocryphal until they ever appear (which sounds like a huge IF at this point) rather than pre-preemptively giving them 'canoncity' sections, right now I see no citation for things Randall has apparently said Thehawk (talk) 14:33, 22 March 2018 (EDT)
- Agree. In the meantime, I've updated the Canonicity section (here and for the Sun Spider as well. Given that there doesn't seem to be user consensus as to wether or not these 'Mechs are canon after all, the default should be to tag them as apocryphal and explain the situation in the Canon section of the respective articles, so that users have all the facts and can decide for themselves.
