Re: Mech Warrior Online

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.

3m variant does, but it's ballistic and energy hardpoints. Only good variants I've seen are 4xMPL, 4XML, and 4xSL/1xLBXAC10

they're good as sniper and recon mechs but they're tough to pilot through anything else

How's Diablo 3 treating you? Love crawling through those dungeons so you can junk everything you find so you can head over to the AH and buy your upgrades instead?

Theres no currancy to speak of. The only thing of value are items that allow you to change gear. No AH. A crazy passive tree. A skill system that is sooooooooo deep I can't even begin.

Srsly look it up if dungeon crawlers intrest you at all.

"New User Controls and Joystick Improvements

Players will now have more options with regards to how they pilot their BattleMechs. Several new control systems and improvement have been added including Throttle Decay (gas pedal vs set throttle), Arm Lock to torso, Set Point Throttle (10-100% throttle values in 10% increments), Face Torso, and Joystick Analog turning. Player will also be able to customize their key bindings via the Pause Menu during matches."

I am going to be very happy when that patch hits. All that's missing is a reverse throttle and then I can have some real fun.

Consumables will use CBills though! So I'll avoid it mostly... I first need to get all my Jenners mastered, and that'll cost too many Cbills as is.

I'm sitting on 25m Cbills. Gonna use those to feel more commander-y by dropping artillery on enemy soldiers.

lol... I am sitting at about 700 CBills right now

I'm also very happy for the training grounds. I've been meaning to rebind my controls to be able to completely control the whole mech with my mouse only, but I didn't want to screw around during matches on getting used to that.

Now I'll finally be able to pull it off.
