That really happend in one of my Mechwarrior Online matches. :lol:
River City at night is so "megadark", that the most player (me included) use the infrarerd view. You can see each mech which is active even on long range, but if they shut down.))

Inspiried by this [link] to draw this strip.

Actually, fun tidbit, you CAN see shutdown mechs with Infared vision. However, they cool down to such a degree it is often times impossible to distinguish them from the background save for on the really cold maps such Frozen City. I know I've pulled that same exact stunt in my Centurion times, powered up, and shot the atlas that was just standing around to living hell in the back.

so did you prevail against the odds or were you promptly stomped into the ground shortly afterwards?
