Alright, those things about the patch I said... yeah, you can take them for fact now. Exact listing of the patch is here.
Yay, free eight mil. I'm going to buy a Catapult C4, grind that tree, then sell one of my Cats to finish Centurion (f___ing CN9-D costing eight mil).
Lulz I can never hit anything with unguided SRMs..
IIRC, the lasers do maximum damage out to their effective range (the number in your weapon group selector), and then the damage scales from full to no damage at twice the effective range.
In other news: **** the repair bill for running into a 6x6SRM Catapult. 60odd k, where a usual got-deaded is around 35 for this build. Explains how they post stupid 1k+ dmg numbers though.
"Six by six Cats" are *****es, worse than the Streak Cats and the AC-20 K2 units. (I use a 2xLB-10X K2, and I can only just peel those ****ers' layers off. I always get second or third place EXP-wise.)
On another note... that archway in Snow Forest that overlooks the tunnel entrance for the southeast base guys? I jumpjetted onto that (was a 2xSRM-6 C1 with a couple lasers), and while my buddies in the tunnel were taking beatings, I laid down SRM fire onto those guys choking the exit... and it took them two minutes to realize I was raining "death from above."
Ahhhh..... another case proving Valve's truthful statement "gamers don't look up."
