Re: Mech Warrior Online

I didn't really stick next to the other mechs and came accross another light mech and we started doing straff wars. He was better at it lol.

Good advice!

Thanks for the new signature Gev.

f0rty make sure you add us and join skype so we can get some games in, right now the trial mechs are OK and you will get a ton of Cbills with your cadet bonus, at the end you will end up with around 8-9 mill enough to buy your first mech.

Downloaded over lunch.

Played 1 game as the trial light mech.

I did 11 dmg!
Woot Woot!
This game is hard.
lol

I downloaded it at lunch too and played a couple games. I kept forgetting to stop moving. I used the AS7-D. First game I was dead before I even knew what happened. Second game I managed to kill 1 person before getting killed. It's definitely hard but not to the point you don't want to keep playing.

CBills don't come by easy after teh cadet bonus... so whatever you do, do not spend them until you tried all the trials and saw all the other mechs in action. When you have more or less an idea of what you'd like, then start spending on that mech. Once you got your first mech properly running, then you can start playing around with the rest.

Yea I learned that the second game which helped. Just have to remember there is a slight delay when starting, stopping, and changing direction.

Several dozens are light mechs.

What you meant is a dozen dozenz.

They're shitty trial mechs anyways.

Are there new trial mechs?

Them being trials does not mean that they are shitty, all the mechs come with a shitty stock gear, 580 for a Jenner is not bad at all and the Catapult was fun with the stock build it had.

Raven 3L is a cheese mech just like splatcat

It will always continue to be cheese until they fix the hitbox and lagshield. This also goes for all lights

Played a good 20 games of this this weekend.

My best game was 400+ dmg and 2 kills.

My first mech set up is a Hunchback mech
w/
1x Guass Rifle (30rnds)
2x Medium lazor
1x AMS
UPG Armor
UPG Frame
UPG Heat sinks
225 standard engine
72.1 kph top speeds

My first set up was 1 Guas + 1 ER PPC but it wasn't very heat efficient and I didn't have room for an AMS or much armor so I switched to the 2 mediums and got more armor and I felt much more durable.

I am basically looking to stay back and cover our big guns. If I find an assult I try to pelt it from range and dodge in and out of getting targeted. I can 1v1 assults pretty easily as well w/ 70+ speed. Dat circle straff.

Had a few very awesome games yesterday. Finally got a pretty good handling of my Jenny and I now know exactly its limitations and who to engage and from who to run the fuck away. It's also fully decked out.

I'm just not sure if I should keep 3 jump jets, or go to 1 jump jet and add back AMS.

Also used the opportunity to get a second mech while everyone abandoned me and Jobbie. I kept thinking of getting a med/heavy... but I could never play them. I hate being a turtle... so I went for a spider 5D instead. It still sucks as it overheats like crazy, barely has any armour and slow as hell... but it'll be a real annoying little beast once I get double heatsinks, a new XL 300 engine and a little ECM box. Then I'll be spreading my ECM love all over the battle field.
