    PS I hate HPG and I hate that its constantly picked alongside the snow maps. I get that it's because they are cold, but the other maps are just so much more interesting, especially Caustic Valley and the city maps.

    I can't really argue with you on that. HPG is objectively a great map, but I hate playing on it for usually half the games in a given day. Polar Lurmlands is usually a dumpster fire. Frozen City New sucks compared to Old Frozen City.

    So I JUST realized that there was a second tab on the "loot bag" page. >_> Was wondering why they said I had 60+ bags and only saw 30ish.

    So PSA, check your second "page" for more loot bags. HAHAHAHAHA

    Got to finally play the game.

    First game. River City at night.
    I follow lance Mad Dog and pretend be his bodyguard while he sends LRMs downrange. After a few minutes I feel I should be more active. "I'll try spotting for my new friend" I think and move forward a bit. I go up the ramp to the area bihind the docks and see some red pips just over the parapet.

    I back up a bit, go to the edge and see two enemy mechs, targets one and shoots some lasers into the water next to him. He gets killed by someone else and I get an assist.

    I jump down to give the other guy what for, turn 90 degrees and sorta look into a full enemy lance.
    It's at this point I stay cool and turn left, turn right, walk forward, that's not where my legs should be pointing, decide I should propable just get into cover, turn to where my LRM buddy was and start going in that direction, remember I now have my increasingly yellow and red back to an enemy lance, try to turn. And then the match kinda ends for me.

    I stay and spectate. We lose 2/12. So in my first game I assisted in killing half the mechs my side killed.

    In game nine I'm on the US servers. I see and Oosik on the other side (Thonhorn? Not right but close) and decide this freebirth scum is my target. Would be fun if I kill him, and also my first kill.
    As it transpires I get taken down as the second mech in the match, by the afore mentioned boner bone member.

    I'm at 16 matches now and think I would like to get in a mech where I get xp.

    Is it worth going for one of the mechs on sale over one not on sale but with armaments closer to what I want?

    There is a Hellbringer on sale. Can't remember the variant.
    Is it worth buying? I'm not a fan of it's default weapons as I don't like the grab-bag approch to equipping mechs, but I still haven't seen the mechlab, and don't know how hard or easy it is to change the loadout.

    So here's a fun thing with Clan Omnimechs:

    In about 90% of the choices, it doesn't matter which variant you pick up. The omnimechs let you change arms, side torsos, heads, and legs to fit those parts from the other variants. An example with the Hellbringer:

    HBR-Prime center torso
    HBR-Prime left torso (for that sweet ECM action and 3 energy hardpoints)
    HBR-A right torso (for a large-bore AC shoulder cannon)
    HBR-Prime right arm (for an energy weapon hardpoint)
    HBR-P left arm (for 2 energy weapon hardpoints)

    EDIT - the only limiting factor is that you cannot change the center torso.

    I concur with @Erlkönig on buying the Omni mechs. You can tell an Omni mech by the "locked" equipment or the ability to buy omnipods.

    Everyone here loves the Hellbringer for multiple builds. Plus having ECM makes you almost invisible (especially at your level). So you might enjoy playing one.

    The Hellbringer prime is on sale. And that's sorta good (ECM, clan, lots of laser slots), but it has no endosteel so it's really hard to optimize the mech.

    The linebacker C on the other hand is definitely a mech I'd want to try out.. Personally I'd probably want to try out this build but the mech itself lends itself more to a "drive-by" style of warfare. But swap out the arms for the D variant and then cram 4 pulses and 4 SRM4s in there and you have a really nice mech for that.

    Heavy Mediums aren't great on a speedy mech like the LBK, in my experience. Then again, my Redline is unimaginative and I just run 6 MPLs on it. Also, Handsome Constanza is a filthy lurmer. :P

    Yeah, probably better to drop them and some heatsinks for medium pulses. Almost the same damage potential, but easier to bring to bear. The main idea though is to find someone exposed, then just maul them with HMGs and lasers while the flamers make it impossible to fight back effectively.

    It's not viable anymore thanks to the SPL nerf in a patch from shortly after that video came out. According to B33f, anyway. I think he said you'd have to swap to ERMLs and you can only run 4 flamers without massive ghost heat.

    So I didn't know about the loot bags, looked up how to redeem them and uh, let's just say I had already capped my skills on the WHM-6D so I had a few to open. I now have a nice nest egg towards whatever assault catches my fancy, a ton of consumables, a good chunk of MC for when mech bays go on sale, a bunch of cosmetics, and over a week of premium time.

    As far as gameplay goes, I'm in a positive K/D ratio (90/81) but still higher losses than wins (61/69). Main issue here I think is that I tend to tunnel vision which leads to shutdowns or having my team fall back and then I'm left high and dry, or I try to flank hard and end up all by my lonesome against the assault lance.

    Pondering selling the Hellbringer, it's not like I'm planning on using it.

    I'm curious: what was the SPL nerf? I seem to remember seeing the damage was reduced, but I wasn't sure to what extent. These days, cERSL is dealing 5 damage and cSPL is dealing 4 (with a cycle time just a shade under 2s).

    I hit the limit on loot bags sometime yesterday. Got about 6 days of premium time and about 1900 MC out of it, plus the Artic Wolf (which is a fun chasis... but its a clan mech so I'm probably going to sell it for cash). Pretty fun overall, can't wait for the next event!


    Also I'm sitting on 35 million cbills right now.. still have no Idea what to spend it on. I bought a hunchback just because I liked it in Battletech and think it looks cool, despite the fact that its useless to me after considering the loadouts of the rest of me mechs


    Edit: also remember guys there are challenges assigned to the phases seperate from the lootbag thing.

    Oh god.. not me. My KD is awwwful. I think it was like .60 last I checked. That was a while ago and I've gotten much better since then, but I'm pretty sure it still sucks. It took a lot of dying to get me to figure out this game on a basic level.. hell im still trying to figure it out.


    Edit: apparently I'm sitting on 299 kills 400 deaths right now. Yeesh. I'm 98/73 in my Warhammer though which I purchased recently so I guess thats a bit of a bright side.


    Edit: I wish they showed something that tallied KMDDs to desths, since thats a more important stat than killing blows which you can get just by finishing someone off with a single shot.

    Oh, before I forget, last match of the night was skirmish on River City.

    Part of the map involved the entirety of the assault lance getting bottled into that tunnel in the eastern edge of the zone.

    I break out to the rear in my 6D and look to flank, but find out the enemy had the same idea and the brawl took both teams down to 2 mechs each: my 6D and a light, and two unknowns on th other side. I turn a corner and come face to face with Cataphract that I core with one salvo.

    The light and I mill around for a bit and then we spot the last enemy mech coming around a corner.

    An Annihilator. Not pristine but not in a shape I can survive a slugging match with either.

    My armor’s tissue paper at this point and the light is just being an angry hornet. The Annie tears off one of my legs so I start trying to lead it around a nearby building like I’m in some kind of horror movie (turns out, even without a leg I’m still faster).

    Then the damn thing blows up on its own.

    I guess he had override turned on and forgot to turn it off?

    So, in doing a bunch of solo drops over the past couple of days, I’ve discovered:

    1) I started too late to hit the 200 loot bags for the free stuff, given my schedule this week. Still - free stuff!

    2) LFEs are a great way to burn through your ~60M CBill reserve.

    3) RACs are the Truth and the Light.

    4) Running an LRM+A 25 with 2 MLAS backup on CN-9 A is a great way to easily get, like, 500 damage done, 1-3 kills, and 8-10 assists basically at-will.

    5) Like srsly, have you seen these RACs? I put 2 RAC2s on a BJ-1 (with no backup weapons) and a RAC5 / MRM 20 combo on a CN9-A (NCIX) and it was filthy how much damage they do. So much fun!!!! Like a shitty match in them is 300 damage.

    Silly question but is there a place for a fast light running a NARC in quick play? Seems all the LRM boat would love you.

  • NamrokNamrok Registered User regular
    Well, trying to grind out the loot bags for the free mech. 69 bags left. I figure if I'm lucky, given my skill level that might take me 50 matches? I need scores of 100 or 150 now to get a bag, and I'd say roughly 1/3rd of the time I just walk into the enemy firing line and get merced.

    So we'll see how the next 3 days go.

    Although I dug out an old Catapult that I've been having a really fun time with. And my Mauler feels like I never took a break in the first place. I keep trying to rehabilitate a Wolverine I slapped a RAC/5 in, but it's just not happening.

    Just when I think I'm out, this game pulls me back in.

    Silly question but is there a place for a fast light running a NARC in quick play? Seems all the LRM boat would love you.

    Yes, but make sure you have a mic to tell people that you've actually narced something. Otherwise no one seems to pay attention to the tiny tag/narc icons. I think I tried to make it work for a while while being socially lazy, and it's just frustrating. Now the only thing I have targets on are for my own missileboats.

    I really wish scouting got more points than it does. :c

    That or type it in the team chat. But yeah, scouting does squat for points/money than it should.

    So I managed to snag at 101 bags as of last night. Not sure if I want to grind the rest since it would take me... oh... what... 50 matches? Even with my Jenner IIc I am not sure if I can manage that.

    Yeah I figured I’d be calling out stuff like “NARC on Hotel”
