Now, which to buy? Maybe both...

I might finally crack and actually spend some money on this. I need to look into those two and see which is better.

didn't you say that you thought one of those two was crrrrrrap?

The phracts are all about finding a configuration that is not total shit. Mostly it is something that either has overwhelming short range firepower or high long range firepower. The close range one is 1ac20 + 4 ML's on my 3d; the long range is my 1x with 4x PPC's.

They work well enough Mostly it's my aim that is the problem on the PPC-A-Phract.

Well I'll run my dragon and phract. I wonder how my best dragon (1.5 KDR on it) will do. Ironically, it has 3 machine guns HAHAH

Flame config I'm running is 1 gauss, 4 ML, 1 srm6, 300XL engine.
Endo/DHS, I think 1 or 2 heatsinks.

Got to 17!th place last night in the dragon bracket. Took a screenshot for good measure. This morning I wake up and am now at 342 lolol

... yet wtf now I'm 36th in cataphracts despite not playing one for almost 13 hours

Just a little toot toot of the horn. Though admittedly this is probably as high up as I can do.

I'm not meant for this slow-ass shit.

Mind you, I was playing a terrible stock Catapult K2 build.

Fastest heavy is a dragon dude - get one and throw the fastest XL in it you can ( I think an XL 360?) and it goes 106 w/ speed tweak

Yeah, but I wanted to give Catapult a try to make shit go boom with 4 PPCs or 2 AC20's. I'm sure I'll do better once I set it up properly. The stock build is just horrible. Overheats in a second.

yeah normally it wouldn't but heat isn't set to TT values. So it overheats like crazy

I bought the Jager DD and slapped 6x AC2s on that thing. First off, it's going to need some serious heat dissipation. I haven't gotten double heat sinks on that thing yet, but it's going to need them... real bad. I'll have to see about getting a lighter engine in there so it can fit more weight for heat sinks, but I need an engine that has plenty of internal heat sinks to work with as well.

Sorry for the lack of sound. The recording software doesn't seem to capture. I really wish I had the sound. That's what makes this whole thing bad ass. Fast forward to 2:00 after the Commando kill.

If I can't shake the heat off this thing, it probably won't work out.

That's an incredible rate of fire.

I think if you go DHS, slap on as many heatsinks as possible and then setup one of your fire modes as a 'chain fire to keep heat down' mode you'll be fine.

That rate of fire is accomplished by something external, FYI, not through any kind of grouping.

figured, but still - what I'm saying is fire slower for less heat ;P

Boy the catapault leaderboards were brutal.

This is as far as I managed to claw this weekend.

I tore it all down and put on 2 ER PPCs and 6x machine guns. The MGs are troll, obviously, but it wasn't uncommon for me to go through 4-5k ammo in a single match, which is a bit retarded.

I did notice that the instant that someone went unarmored a component destruction happened. It's the craziest thing I've seen. Keep the pepper spray on a target and as soon as that armor is shredded, the guns fire so many hail of bullets that any components that are exposed are stripped instantaneously.

I can go through nearly 100 MG ammo/sec.

The best part is that since all six MGs are mounted on the arms, I can point them straight up into the sky and fire them off like a victory shot when I'm done.

I was going through Ask the Devs #34 and found this...

HugoStiglitz: Last Ask the Devs mentioned purchasable kits that effected the model of mechs. So when will I be able to put a top hat on my Atlas so I can kill in style?

A: No ETA yet. No work has been done to support this feature at this time.
Jobbie, you might get your sombrero on the catapult after all!

OH LOOK ANOTHER DUPE POST

Well I'll make a use for it.

basically I ended up 16th, tied for 15th on the dragon boards. 5170 points :X .. I busted my butt but could not make up the gap - not sure how these guys were getting 7770 points or whatever. That's pretty freaking absurd and improbable to boot. Oh well. I got enough for a good showing and I'm happy enough with that.

16th place is the 15th loser! >_
