    Good point, I should do the same. Especially since people will assume the UV is the sandblaster till it is too late.

    I'm like 400mc away from a UV... so close. I might just buy a cyclops or something instead though, because I can have that *now*.

    Sleipnir? You'll get more usage out of that than the UV anyway.

    I’ve seen people run it with 4xERLL for a long range mech in faction play, but it has to fully expose to alpha strike.

    There are several variants with MRMs I’ve seen, some people go with a smaller engine to armor up the arms and bring smalls, I’ve also seen 30s instead so they can bring mediums.

    I do love MRM. Just so excessive.
    First match- getting dropped in Polar Highlands. Ugh.

    It did not go well. Trying to drop to 30s and load up on ERML.

    Part of that is a consequence of the global PSR reset. You were probably just recently in Tier 5 and didn't realize it!

    I’ve been shot at by enough of those to know they are good.
    I had a game right when they merged the group queues where I was grouped up with 4 of them running maximum ac2s and we camped the far back hill on tourmaline. Most of the opposing team was dead by the time they got within 800m.

    A lot of UAC or AC 2s are surprisingly effective. Like the first second of being hit is like... whatever. But then it adds up so fast.

    It’s based on the relative performance (match score) of everyone else in the game, with I think a hefty bonus if you win and a small bonus if you survive.

    Would need to see the score screen to determine what happened, but here’s a secret:

    There are people in Tier 1 who got there thanks to LRM boats and quad AMS RAC Corsairs.

    Next time I play I'm gonna try having a heavy duty Targeting Computer in that Rifleman I bought. I kinda overdid it with Heat Sinks so I can definitely drop them (I don't have that many to begin with but a couple tons helps toward having a TC bigger than a single ton). Thinking of aiming for a size 4 or 5. Just to see how much impact I can get out of four UACs.

    I never could get LRMing to work for me in QP, I’d always have a match where there was a light wolf pack right up my ass after the first volley.

    When I bought mine I replaced the engine with a higher grade XL (280) and slapped in 10 tons of ammo, with a TC1 and a half ton dedicated to the probe equip. And then like 4 tons of heat sinks?

    The ammo I'm not sure about cutting back on but am going to in this refit. I actually had a match where I ran out, and no, I wasn't missing shots / shooting into the terrain on purpose. Granted it was just the one match but still, it became possible.

    Edit - Oh yeah and Ferro Fibrous because duh.

    The cor is really really good, I honestly don’t see that many missiles all the time but it’s nice knowing if someone brings atms that they don’t get to play. I think it helps that people panic and back off when you spray racs at them.

    The only lrm mech I’ve had any luck with was a catapult and I had to direct fire with it so much it just felt like a jester or rac-k2 but with 10 times as much face time and as an added bonus I get to do 10 damage total if the other team brought a COR.

    Oof, just tried the TC5 idea. It worked out great on the personal performance end, but the match came down to 2v2 and I ran out of ammo just when it got to that point.

    All heat sinks gone, two more tons of ammo. That should help. <_<

    Long ago this is why I would always run a SL or cERSL in my ballistic mechs. I only had to use it once when I was in my Sleipnir and was up against two others. One was a laser Timber Wolf and the other was an ammoless mech. The Timber Wolf overheated and exploded while I plinked the other to death with my ERSL (upgraded it just for the range). The other side died of laughter on all chat when the TW self-destructed. I'm guessing they knew I was out of ammo and was trying to tell the TW to ease off the heat.

    So this is the first time I've played a distinctly sniper driven mech and I'm actually kind of digging it. It's incredible to see the amount of chaos you can cause in an enemy line by dealing damage, significant or not, to a couple of them at once. Bonus points if you can hide before they notice where it's coming from (or if they're out of range to retaliate).

    I'm always realizing how much more mileage armor gets when you're at distance from enemy. I'm starting to get way less scared of some weapons when taking hits at certain distances because they aren't doing the full 6 on contact or whatever; it's reduced to 1, etc.

    Edit - I think what I enjoy most is that this isn't like any other FPS game where you should always be getting headshots and such. It's more thought driven. Know where your team is and wants to move, know the same about the enemy, and then try to influence the enemy to change their plans. I've gotten a lot of people to blow their cover to evade my damage, only to be caught by my team. I like this style of play a LOT. Game is way more interesting now.

    The thought and strategy involved in MWO was immediately apparent to me after a few games. I quite like it, and would play it more if my hands weren't giving me gyp atm.

    I'm not entirely sure I like this entirely short ranged brawler focused warhammer build tho. I don't think it suits my playstyle much.

    My problem with Caustic is that it effectively has no missile cover. If the enemy gets locks their missiles will just go "oh, pardon me, terrain" and fly like an inch above the surface, hitting you on the other side.

    I'm getting to the point where I wish the maps were just plain random; like, yeah, I'd have to endure the shitshow that is Alpine every now and again, but at least I wouldn't keep seeing Canyon/Hibernal winning every time they come up. I haven't played on Viridian in two weeks and it's my favourite map.

    Polar Highlands isn't that bad, especially when you have Domination as the game mode. Sure, it forces a nascar more often than not, but it forces a fairly short ranged nascar.

    Alpine Peaks on the other hand, can FUCK RIGHT OFF.

    I adore Alpine Peaks. It has some actual geometry to it and if your team is willing to cooperate you can have fights play out in different parts of the map instead of the same bullshit all the time.

    Edit - The exception being if Alpine Peaks is set on Domination.
