We know how Battle Value works, and in some cases, doesn't. I attempted to make a better way to rank/rate 'Mechs to eyeball army matchups. It should serve both to guess who can take who in a straight-up fight, and also a more vague "what each 'Mech brings to the field".

I'm not posting the actual specific rules yet (to avoid contaminating you test groupies), but I did calculate my BV3 for a few dozen canon Inner Sphere and Clan designs that we're all familiar with. if you have some time, please take a look at the list below and tell me if you personally feel like anything looks hugely out of place. Thanks!
