    How much cooler would Battletech be if the primary weapons included melee weapons?

    Doesn't the Kodiak have bigass spikes on its fists specifically so it can reach out and fuck someone up?

    I thought that was the whole point of mechs like the rifleman?

    That's what they wrote in the fluff because that's what the Defender was for in Macross, and it's led to the idea that low caliber ACs are good anti-air weapons in tabletop, but they're really just as bad against air as they are against ground. In the original ground-to-air rules when the Rifleman was statted out, any weapon with range >5 could shoot at fighter craft in the hex; so medium lasers did just as well as AC/5s while weighing a lot less, or you could use SRMs to hunt for lucky hits. Precision rounds were introduced to help, but still didn't make AC/5s good; two medium lasers or SRM2s + heat sinks would still be lighter than an AC/5 with better odds of landing a hit. I think in the current rules you actually do need long range guns since you target the center hex on the map sheet, and altitude is factored in, but I'm pretty sure that just means you'll be better off with LRMs (especially LRM-5s).

    Despite what the fluff says, Riflemen aren't actually good at anti-air, and Vulcans aren't great at anti-infantry.

    Umm, nah. We've got some sharks on the rolls (not those Sharks, though), but the vast, vaaast majority of Oosiks are "We make Stompy Bot go pew pew kablam dakka dakka" caliber teammates.

    Being an Oosik is like that thing science discovered where your actions, in the start of their physical execution, were already predicted and acted on by the neurons in your brain before you even started to move or think about the action.

    The analog here is that if you were going to say "Hey guys watch this", then you were already an Oosik before you even said it.

    How much does it cost to add a player to the unit? And how do players pay into the unit's coffers?

    I play so infrequently I feel like I should pay back the cost to join. That's part of why I never requested to join previously.

    Depending on how well a person does and if they have premium time (+50% money) and are piloting a hero mech (+30% cbill payout)...I think the highest payout I've had is around 750k cbills in a match (this is spectacularly good for me). Using that metric, about 30 matches of 8-12 minutes each. So...6-7 hours at the quickest (which includes the downtime while searching for a match)?

  • ErlkönigErlkönig Registered User regular
    Okay, I just went back through all my saved screenshots that I renamed to some variation of "Making it rain," "Stackin paper," or "Printing money," and the highest payout I've gotten has been in the 550k-580k cbills (this is with premium time and hero/special mechs). So, add another couple hours or so to the minimum amount of time.

    Doesn't premium time tick with real-world time, instead of only passing when you are in game? That always bothered me.

    It is now just a bit less than 5 mil to invite an Oosik. Our ledger shows 97 members (98 when TimFiji joins). Honestly I don't see 97 members on the list, but maybe there are.

    Honestly I hate mentioning the money part of the paperwork since it makes players feel guilty joining or leaving. Just it sucks since we all play so infrequently that I would rather have players put that money into their mechs than the Unit coffers. When I used to play like crazy and had tons from pre-orders and grab bag events I would toss in enough to invite the next Oosik. Since I haven't played much and no more pre-order mech packs I have actually ran my bank account really low. I can invite two more with ease though thanks to the last event.

    I don't think so anymore. The reason I say that is I had the 14 days free from the code and I still show more than 14 days when I logged in earlier to add TimFiji. Maybe it changed in a recent patch?

    I always figured that IronNips was an alter ego of yours. One day we would see an IronNips versus Nips duel to see which one came out victorious and lead the Oosiks and Iron Oosiks to the promised kegs.

    I switched out two UAC10s on my Bushwacker for two RAC5s. Man, I do less damage per engagement, but it feels real good. Until they both jam 5 seconds into a fight, but that's no different than before, you live by the ultras, you die by the ultras.

    Yeah my current Bushwacker used to have two RAC/5s as well. It's surprisingly effective because Bushwackers are (relatively) hauling ass at 81 kph. You can reposition yourself on the battlefield and give people a big scare with the sound of getting hit by dual RACs.

    Amusingly, the mechs I hate meeting in my Bushwacker... is another Bushwacker. Something seems to have made them real popular lately, month ago I barely ever saw one, now there's a couple each match. Maybe Baradul did a build.

    Amusingly, the mechs I hate meeting in my Bushwacker... is another Bushwacker. Something seems to have made them real popular lately, month ago I barely ever saw one, now there's a couple each match. Maybe Baradul did a build.
    In a way Bushwackers are light and medium killers. They carry one of the most aggressive loadouts for a medium class mech and they move pretty fast, not allowing them to catch up to squirrely lights but able to keep pace enough to fire additional shots on them.

    But then they're also weirdly vulnerable and it has everything to do with their profile & central hitbox. I've had matches where I get knocked out, and my armor is largely intact, and all 250ish damage I took was entirely focused on my central torso. It's less damage than I tend to take in my light mechs before I get knocked out of a match in them.
