    All good, I just wanted to provide the date because I came across it purely by accident while looking into Holy Shroud (for the record they list the date of Holy Shroud II there instead of on its own page.

    I think that Tiepolo was against the NAIS raid because he saw (or at least was aware of) the failure of Holy Shroud II.

    I also think that if Waterly had taken the helm 5 years earlier, Comstar would be a more visible participant in the events.

    Hi thread, sorry to interrupt!

    I just got into this game. I saw the collection of mech builds on page one, joined the discord. Any other suggestions? I'd really like a Nova build https://mech.nav-alpha.com/#abcbd3d5_NVA-A (I love the nova since MW2), but curious how it would run.

    e: I'm also cool throwing some $$$ at a free game so if there are any bundles you suggest, please share!

    Three kills. 200XP. Granted they were kills on lights that were sitting still so very little actual damage, but man, that one stung.

    Nova's are fun because MW2 like you said, but they are an odd shape. Running some AMS and lasers and trying to stay with the group is a good way to be helpful while learning the game, IMO

    I'm still trying to get practice in with it, but I just had a successful fishing trip in my Javelin.

    What I call "fishing trips" in MWO is when I run out to basically be bait for people to chase a kill. The idea is peel off enemies from the main fight or at least distract them long enough for my team on the front line to get an advantage. Or in this case, get out of a disadvantage. We were on goddamn Canyon Network again and my team went into the typical kill box on the low ground. So I ran up to the middle and peeled off an entire lance from the enemy. Instead of going to the high ground to trap my team into one spot, they tried chasing me around a bit. Bought my team time to fight the enemy 11 to 8 (or technically 7; one of the enemy's scouts was taking a long path around for vision on our rear flank). By the time I got back with the enemy behind me my team was positioned to open fire on them as a surprise. Thank god my team was paying attention to my "Target Spotted" and "help" calls getting closer as I approached.

    I highly recommend getting the NVA-S as it is the only variant with the AMS slot in the center torso. You can still build the ERPPC build on it, but you can also build a triple AMS and 12 ERSL build as well and farm match score off of missile boats.

    For mech packs the only two which are full value at the basic level are the Piranha and Vapor Eagle. There are several which have 1-2 good chassis, but the two I mentioned are the only ones where all 3 variants are high tier.

    Other than that I’d recommend GSP packs once you’ve settled into mechs you like. Skill grinding is tedious if you don’t have premium time.

    Other way around. You'd buy the S-variant for the CT (which cannot be swapped), then swap A omnipods onto that S CT.

    Sorry, with Omnimechs the part that’s locked to a variant is the CT. The NVA-A can only ever have the A CT

    Thing is, I was doing it in a pretty stupid way. The Javelin is a tall light mech. Luckily I play more heavily armored than most people so I was able to take what was being thrown my way.

    The trick is putting up enough of a fight to convince people you're vulnerable enough (and having enough firepower to not be ignorable). I changed my two pulse lasers out for ER lasers and it made a huge difference in engaging people and keeping their attention. Literally had 2 mediums and an assault firing on me at my furthest reach before I decided it was enough to FO. Lost all my back armor but lived the whole match with everything intact.

    My team won a match via capture on Polar Highlands. Score was 11-9. Our three remaining mechs were LRM-only King Crab, LRM-only Supernova, and a PPC-LRM Mad Dog. No LRM ammo left on any mech.
    Remaining enemy mech- afk Raven. As the three mechs capped, the Mad Dog shot once at the Raven, hit the hill in front of himself, then just zoomed in and out on it until the cap finished. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen.

    No joke, I've pulled this off on canyon network in a king crab. The other team got so excited about an isolated assault they lost 4 guys to being rolled over from behind by the time I went down

    Holy shit how much armor to Highlanders have? My team had one guy standing at the end in a match just now, and he literally just stood in place taking damage for a solid 40 seconds returning fire (badly).

    IS Highlander? They have a decent amount of armor, a lot if they have a full armor skill tree, but they also have easy to isolate hit boxes.

    If it was still alive that long with 7 mechs shooting at it, it was some combination of excellent Highlander pilot and poor shooting by the other team.

    In order he lost left leg, right arm, right torso, left arm, and then finally fell over.

    Still processing larger events in the world, and I had a rewatch of the Battletech intro. Probably my favorite "on a budget" cutscene of all time.



    And I just kept thinking to myself, "Yep, this is how something noble and beautiful just... falls apart." Same as it ever was.

    The intro is so good. I knew shit about the lore going into Battletech, but that cutscene neatly sets the stage for the game and with music and timing that gives goosebumps. Beautifully executed minimalistic cutscene.

    So apparently on the highest difficulty Roguetech introduces the Urbanmech AIV as an enemy unit. Some of you are now cringing. The rest are going "wuh? why is an Urbanmech on the worst difficulty?"
    The AIV is a semi-cannon Urbanmech variant that mounts an Arrow IV missile artillery launcher. With nuclear tipped missiles. Everything within ~6 hexes either side of ground zero dies.

    360 meters, 6 on either side. This thing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Crockett_(nuclear_device) hits at around 10 tons of TNT...not that much. Everything unshielded within a quarter mile would still die, but that's because it was very very hot, throwing out more radiation than blast. Mechs would protect against that to a fair extent.

    Still not good game design by any means though. :P

    Also I decided to stat up an Urbanmech aimed for close-in fighting only, since the AC/10 actually has decent range.

    Turns out without changing any of the other fit, by pulling the AC/10 and ammo you can add 1 small laser and 24 Machine Guns. Bad news: Max range 3 hexes. Good news: 50 point alpha strike, basically no heat, 4 alphas of ammo (8 if you pull the extra small laser). You're going to sandblaster things to death though...

    I mean she had no idea what anything was called or any of the politics of course, but she got the point just fine.

    Don't encourage me to do silly shit. Because I will. <.<

    I took one of the Fafnir variants into the testing ground and holy crap, I didn't know firing double Heavy Gauss Rifles would cause so much recoil. I also didn't know their range was actually really low on the optimal end. Lethal as hell, but closing 200 meters is quite a chore.

    Hahaha, yeah I pre-ordered the Marauder II set because it was a cheap buy for a bunch of assaults. Then I had to do an Oosik build with the rocket launchers. Knowing me I'd be super tempted to buy one just for the laughs. I only have had it work once though, but it was worth it watching that armor of the enemy mech melt.

    That's why you run the ECM Fafnir. You have no idea how a huge mech sometimes will not register on people's screens since they can't target it.

    I'm looking around at Assault mechs to buy in MWO, specifically IS mechs since I already have 2 clan designs in that class. The Marauder 4HP is fucking hysterical; do you like rockets? THIS IS THE MECH FOR YOU.

    I found it to be super hilarious when the rockets work. Think I run mine with tons of them and MLs or MPLs I think.
    Don't encourage me to do silly shit. Because I will. <.<

    I took one of the Fafnir variants into the testing ground and holy crap, I didn't know firing double Heavy Gauss Rifles would cause so much recoil. I also didn't know their range was actually really low on the optimal end. Lethal as hell, but closing 200 meters is quite a chore.

    Hahaha, yeah I pre-ordered the Marauder II set because it was a cheap buy for a bunch of assaults. Then I had to do an Oosik build with the rocket launchers. Knowing me I'd be super tempted to buy one just for the laughs. I only have had it work once though, but it was worth it watching that armor of the enemy mech melt.

    That's why you run the ECM Fafnir. You have no idea how a huge mech sometimes will not register on people's screens since they can't target it.

    I’ve watched a stealth Atlas stroll through enemy teams and come out the other side at 100%

    As far as ECM on Assault class mechs goes, do you want to skill up for the Enhanced ECM in the Sensors tree?

    You always want the ECM nodes on an ECM mech.

    As for IS Assaults, Sleipnir Cyclops if you have MC to burn.

    If you don't, pick up the FNR-5.

    You can slap 4x LB10X in either of those, and it's solid.
