    MW5 (modded with YAML, just IS tech stuff):

    Finished the main campaign right before Rasalhague part 2 kicked off. Currently on Mission 3 of that section.

    Thoughts on how everything works together so far:
    HotIS: I only really got the Rifleman, Victor, and half of the Dragon chains done before Kestrel kicked off. Managed to get the Orion before Rasalhague pt 1. Dragon came just after. As of right now still need to do the King Crab and Corsair lines.

    LotKL: The two mini-chains did help me fill out my heavies, and the main Kestrel campaign wasn't that bad at all, but then again I had salvaged the Marauder II from the last mission from the Victor chain and stacked it with 3 BLCs/5 MLs.

    CtA: Hatchetman chain comes too late in the campaign. I was already working with heavies and the heavier mediums for the Hatchetman you get (and ones you can salvage) to be worthwhile.

    RoR: First half was a breeze, second half started almost right after I finished the main campaign and was flush with cash and 100 ton assaults. Strolling a 4xUAC/5 Annihilator around the third mission (the base defense one) was almost criminal.

    Main workhorses have been my first Longbow (had since early in the campaign), the Marauder II, and two 2xAC/10 WHM-6Rs.

    hotfix incoming

    Patch for the bolt-ons (and Centurions) causing loading issues is dropping Wednesday morning.

    Patch notes:
    Here's what you should expect post-patch:

    Server stability should return to normal
    Client crashes (from the Centurion) should be fixed
    Bolt-Ons will function more like Cockpit Items
    We have reduced the total Item IDS by making (most) Bolt-Ons shared across the Chassis where possible
    There are still Unique Bolt-Ons such as Atlas Glowing Eyes that can only be equipped to Atlas Variants
    Examples
    If you owned 1 left-hand Atlas Katana Sword and 1 left-hand Hatamoto Katana Sword you will now own 2 left-hand Katana Swords that can be equipped on Mechs that are compatible with Left-handed Katana Swords
    Note
    No Bolt-Ons have been removed
    You may now own duplicates of some Bolt-Ons depending on your inventory
    You will still need to unequip Bolt-Ons from the mechs that they are currently equipped on to move them to other mechs
    In some cases, there will still be duplicate Bolt-Ons that are only shared on select mechs
    Naming conventions on the Bolt-Ons are a bit wonky (for now) as the UI intends to display all the mechs it is compatible with
    We will fix the naming convention in a future patch (not in Dec patch for now)

    Look forward to current event extensions, a compensation event, and Seasonal events coming this week.

    Best suggestion I can give is go hard at the start so you can hit as many of the HotIS chains as possible. No lie, the Agincourt (Archer) would have been amazing, and I did have a Fang (Dragon) I found on the market to round out some lances that would have been great as the Sidewinder. I screwed around a bit and I was starting Kurita space stuff when I got the message from Sortek. It might be possible to speed run the campaign before Kestrels starts up but I doubt it (mebbe if modded and with a full crew of player controlled mechs).

    Stuff does get kinda packed near the end. Rasalhague part 1/finishing campaign/Rasalhague part 2/Dragon's Gambit all are close enough together that there's not a lot of breathing room.

    Except doesn't the base campaign not have any dates on that, and thus zero time pressure to actually finish it? So less of a rush there.

    I vaguely recall kinda pissing around for like two decades in-game before getting around to finishing the story.

    I clearly need to get caught up, but I'd love to know how I, the Protagonist, am
    in debt to ComStar for killing one of the their men, who if I recall was an asshole basically at every moment and actively tried to kill me, the Protagonist, in an Annihilator at one point.

    Like, where's the "debt" I'm paying off here?

    Honestly it was kind of funny to me because I was thinking "I've got a company of assault mechs. I'm basically offbrand Wolf's Dragoons at this point. Would you like me to kill a couple more Precentors? Because I'm up for that."

    While racing light mechs, your Urbanmech comes in second place, but only because it ran out of ammo.

    Reports are that the patch worked and game is loading much faster (than even before).

    Haven’t played myself yet but so far it’s encouraging.

    MWO December Patch notes

    It's a biggie now that the comp season is over:

    New legendaries:
    Longbow "Spitfire" (Rocket Launcher and LRM-5 HSL with a ton of missile hardpoints. Think MAD-4HP as a Longbow)
    Stone Rhino "Aksum" (8 torso ballistic hardpoints and a massive screenshake modifier)

    Free holiday mechs:
    WHM-6R(H) (Warhammer with 30% cbill boost and santa themed paintjob/boltons)
    COM-D03(H) (New Commando with 5 energy hardpoints, 2 H, 3 CT and MASC. Thanks to small cockpit (!) and compact gyro (!!))

    Weapons:
    LRM-5, cLRM-5, ATM-3 are unlinked from other launchers, now have an HSL of 6. cLRM-5 and ATM-3 share this HSL.
    RAC/2, RAC/5 buffed.
    HAG shots are now distinct color from Gauss rounds.

    Equipment:
    Advance Sensor Package (replacement for Command Console) now can be fitted to ALL IS mechs, not just Heavies and Assaults.
    IS/Clan single HS buffed (increased dissipation for first 10 from .15 to .18)
    cDHS nerfed (reduced dissipation from .22 to .2)
    IS/Clan ECM nerfed (ECM bubbled reduced to 90m from 120)

    Mechs:
    Vindicator: St Ives Blues has an additional (third) missile hardpoint now (apparently was always there, just never "activated")
    Centurion: Agility buffed
    Longbow: JJ shake reduced to match other mechs.

    Quirks:
    Urbanmech IIC (multiple buffs for both)
    Thunderbolt (TDR-10SE, buffed missile cooldown)
    Marauder (Blight, buffed survival quirks to match MAD-5D)
    Longbow (LGB-12C, LGB-12R, buffed missile quirks)
    Annihilator (All, cleanup and buffs)

    Map fixes:
    Added invisible walls in Steiner Coliseum to prevent wall abuse.
    Fixed stuck points in Bearclaw II.

    Wasn't the Commando the mech that broke the original code where you could be faster than the CryEngine could detect or something like that?

    historically the holiday mechs were given to you if you played in a specific period of time and got at least 50 match score in 1 game.

    Should note that the Commando in question is allegedly capped at 175 for the engine size.

    I don't recall which chassis's could get fast enough, but basically if you got your mech up to around 180 kph, their net code breaks because it could no longer rectify the differences between where you are shooting and where the mech is from the pilot's perspective. If you watch top MWO light pilots, you'll still see them feathering MASC or their top speed, because fluctuating your top speed makes it significantly harder for MWO's code to rectify what both players are seeing versus any lag.

    The better question is "which phase of this being broken do you mean?"

    Because physical mech location and where the netcode thinks it is have been broken many times. It was broken for a while for absolutely everybody when mech knockdowns were still in the game; run into a mech and it would be desynced when it got up, fucking up trying to shoot it. The solution was to disable knockdowns (sad Dragon noises). Then there was also a long-ass time, way before MASC and when mech top speeds were only like 140-160 kph, where effectively everything was desynced all the time but only high speed really desynced mechs and hitboxes so that meant the fastest stuff took insane amounts of punishment. If you think it's hard killing a high-speed Commando with "speed armor" that shrugged off like 80% of the landed damage, imagine trying to kill a Centurion at ~130 kph with speed armor (thanks to XL engines) and also had a hitbox bug where losing an arm gave permanent extra protection to the torso sections. And SRMs had their explosion damage bugged and multiplied, so said Centurion running around with a stack of SRM-6 hit harder than an AC-20.

    And then I think they "fixed" the problem and upped the speeds and broke desyncing later. And then did it again later. Anyway, yeah, speed has broken the game at least twice I think.

    Picked up my BEX playthrough, slowly chipping away at miniscule early game payouts.

    My Twin Chargin' Chuck Vulcans continue to bowl over the opposition, until I face bug mechs that can jump into my rear arc. Those make me sad. Until they land too close and get suplexed. Quite satisfying.

    These hit percentages are absolutely stupid, though. I understand you're looking to simulate low skill pilots but I shouldn't opt for melee on a SRM Commando with no heat because my guns won't hit otherwise. That includes post evasion stripping.

    Honestly, I want to believe just for the ongoing success of the franchise at large, but even more honestly I'd just rather MW5:C gets released and shows itself to be competent and does good numbers. I kinda just want more solo-playable MechWarrior (despite not spending enough time with it already).

    I just don't see how a new PvP MechWarrior title is any more successful in the hands of a PGI that, in and of itself, demonstrated a literal decade of frequent incompetence. That said under their new Corporate Overlords of EG7, whose portfolio has a number of not-blockbuster-but-not-abject-failure online games, maybe there's enough outside oversight and guidance that a new game of that ilk might not suck.

    Current plan (allegedly) is that they’re working on getting Clans out the door then looking into this.

    Realistically if they base any team for MWO2 around the folks currently working on MWO (and not the ones who ran it into the ground and maintenance mode) they’re probably going to be in a more solid place.

  • GlalGlal AiredaleRegistered User regular
    I think in the past I would have agreed, but ever since they put someone back on the MWO dev team, and been working with the Cauldron to keep the game fresh? If they keep that going into the new title I am jazzed.

    Unfortunately it's much more likely that the extra investment brings back the management interference that repeatedly threw logs under MWO's feet in the past, but, you know, hope springs eternal.

    DLC-6 is on Solaris, and includes Duncan Fisher as a Mechwarrior ally.

    New chassis is the Loader King (which is the Roughneck I think?). Along with several gladiator mech variants.
