Re: Mech Warrior Online

Hah, I sometimes don't use it either. Especially in the middle of the night city in the water. But just because I have an easier time seeing friendlies vs enemies without any mode in that specific area. I think one of you even kept telling to turn on heat vision a couple of nights ago when I did that.

There are other modes than thermal? Huh.

Sounds redundant :P

I love when people is spectating while dead and they tell you to turn either vision or to switch your ECM.

I like thermal, but I can't use it effectively if there's a big brawl and everyone is right next to each other while I am running around frantically at 130+, trying to avoid getting hit, and figuring out if the big blotch of red in front of me is a friendly or foe when the overlay is telling me both are there within 10m of me and I only have a second to decide if I should shoot or not before they're behind me.

I usually go night or just turn it off completely then as I have an easier time avoiding shooting friendlies.

You have a 3L and a Streakmando, right? I'd get a spider.

I think the hunchbacks are ok, but I like mechs that are "in the spotlight". I would recommend a streakmando. 1ML 3Streaks and ECM.

Only part of it.

Like I said, I was always a fan of speed and light mechs... plus I wanted to play around with the ECM and I am not a fan of the Raven right now. I got this OCD about wanting to use what's least popular.... so Spider it is for me.

Plus that backward movement speed is just nuts. I just wish they would add extra shortcut keys that the old Mech games had.
1/4 speed, 1/2 speed, 3/4 speed, Max speed and reverse engine buttons are a must for me.

This new cicada could be pretty potent, like the Raven, but without the ECM. With 4 lasers and 2 missile hard points, you could lay out 2 streaks, 4 medium lasers, high speed, and lay out a world of hurt. Even without ECM, this looks like a good mech.

Should be pretty solid. High speed, VERY good torso twist (125 deg each dir w/out tweaks/basic/etc)?!, reasonable payload, good armor.

It can be a mean hitter at that speed for sure... but I really hate that chassis. Way too easy to render it useless, I find.

I've seen some nasty cicadas. Barring the absolutely trashy trial mech, that is.

I think most people only play the trial cicada. You see very few legit cicadas out there. Get one thats armored up and you'll see that those things are actually a bit tough to take down, especially one that can hit back (hard) and move around like a mad man.

Too bad it doesn't have ECM. If it did, it would replace the Raven 3L entirely.

I didn't pay attention if the cicadas I was hitting were trial or not... but I find their legs so easy to hit, and they would fall off way too quick.

I do have to admit that I played 2 or 3 hours of MWO this weekend. I played 6 - 9 hrs of PoE.

Its pretty freaking amazing. The passive tree and the skills are crazy deep!

I guess I'll give the Cicada a try once I'm done decking out the Spider. Their speed is still good, so I'll see how they actually feel in combat (when it's not a trial one.)

Edit: Plus I still need to try that fast mech with an AC20 thing. The Cicada should work better for that than a Raven, anyway.
