Even when bringing up MechCommander (Which is what I was about to do!), after you grew past your first 4 much and filled out to a full roster of 12 (I think that was the max drop), you end up moving from microing 4 Mechs to microing 4 control groups of 3 Mechs each. At least I did. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, and I do think you gain some fun as a player with more units under your direct command- It lets you specialize more, and being able to unleash 5 LRM Mechs at once while also barreling in with some AC20 bruisers is really satisfying.

Missionforce cyberstorm did fine with larger rosters. Don't see why this can't do the same.

Limiting you to fewer mechs encourages savescumming to a larger degree, I'm guessing that missions have to be balanced around a full roster so losing about a quarter of your fighting strength depending on the mech to an unlucky crit means struggling uphill for the rest of the mission.
Cyberstorm gave you about twenty mec, sorry, hercs to juggle in the later missions, which meant taking a few losses wasn't that big of a deal.

Maybe, but who cares about save scumming? Balance the game so that if you take a few losses it's not a huge deal to the larger campaign, and if players want to save scum let them. It's one of those things that I"ve never understood getting hung up on to the point that you change core game mechanics to discourage it.

Mechcommander disabled saving during missions, and I think it's better off for it, even though good pilots were hard to come by.

E: for anyone jonesing for tactical robit action, I highly recommend cyberstorm. It's free and there are unofficial patches around that make it W7/8/10 compatible

That does nothing to stop save scumming, it just forces save scummers to restart the mission.

That's the point, it raises the threshold for using the load button. My habit of "rerolling" bad turns in Xcom makes me a worse player and makes the game altogether less fun for me, but there's no "bronzeman" toggle.

Not hard at all as long as you focus on the movement/sight/armor/firing mechanics and not think about how X/Y/Z weapon does .1 damage more than it should, "optimal builds", or how any of the technology in the game would work in real life.

Any amount of mechs will encourage savescumming so long as "Whoops, looks like team rocket's head shot again!" is a factor of the series

That said, fun policing save/loads is always a losing proposition anyways unless you are just looking for cheep buzzword cred anyways. The majority of such concerns being hard line tends to revolve around Leaderboards ™ anyways. Though some games to it unobtrusively without impacting the funhaving, other games will go "We did a re-release but removed NG+ letting you go on an early equipment revenge spree. Because leaderboards, I guess" like the ninja gaiden games.

It's more an issue of me taking advantage of a feature if it's there. More videa gaems should do a bronzeman feature, where saves are limited and having to make due with what you got doesn't make the game weirdly unbalanced.

E:To drag Xcom into this again, it's surprisingly easy to get to a "no-win" state if you let the RNG do it's thing and play the game somewhat suboptimally, especially on higher difficulties.
