Re: Mech Warrior Online

500-700 damage games are fantastic. The approach of dodging damage and sniping in shots when you can is the big mentality of a light mech.

It becomes more of a chess game than a giant brawl. I've seen it with us now where we're playing caustic valley and someone over-commits an exploration on a catapult and the whole team zones in on that one guy and makes him pay for it.

When you get your mech to a point where you're no longer throwing money at it to tinker with, it becomes a great thing. My LRM boat hasn't been modified in a while. My medium laser HBK was about to get shelved until I threw in a high speed engine in there. It's been a drastic improvement since then.

The next step is a light mech, a Raven. I'm going to get that ironed out, but the 3L is so damn expensive. The XL engine upgrade is 4mill cbills alone. Then I have to slap some SRMs and probably another medium laser on it. Hopefully, it'll be in good shape by then.

The real $$ sink comes when you start maxing the talents out in the mechs and you have to start leveling up other variants of the same type so you can max those out.

When you get XP-capped on 3 different mechs of the same type, you unlock higher tiers.

I am really torn between getting the Catpault SRM/LRM Boat and going for the Awesome. One of the reason is that I share equipment between the two, but more importantly I share the pilot skills between the two and can unlock them faster.

Having the mix of SRM/LRM while less effective long range, is not totally screwed close range. Either way I am a way off in C-bills, might be a week or so before I get up to 10 mil to give me some buffer.

I paid for the DDC with the premium credits I bought last September. I think it cost just under 4200 MC, or 10mill C-bills.

The Awesome is the best LRM boat in the game. There's no reason to be hasty just so you can do a bunch of things mediocre.

The Cat is an amazing SRM whore though. 6x SRMs.

Also, if you go with the LRM boat, it doesn't take that long to deck it out. The only upgrade I picked up was double heat sinks. There's no room for armor or endo. Just strap on 4X LRMs and shove ammo in every spot that'll fit.
