News from the front:
Patch is up. Hero Commando (four lasers), some memleaks supposedly fixed, there's a boat in Forest Colony Snow, NARC/TAG spots get paid... and that's all I know.
Oh and we get Betty's startup sequence (player turns on console, and everything powers up in countdown).
The Spider has been released today. Now what?
Laugh at how terrible it is?
*cue Spider Pig theme* All it takes is probably an anti-ECM unit, a few Streak volleys and some accurate laser aiming, and that's that.
One time, I was in Caustic in my Shortcat, and while I was throwing alpha volleys into an Atlas's back... a Spider showed up in my face, then one alpha volley and I basically turned him to mech shrapnel (I cored all his torso sections and blew off his arms).
Still, that was a bit cooler than another Caustic encounter in my L-Laser Cat-C1 (3 LLs, 2 SSRM-2s). There were about four Atlases, but I was able to expose their front CTs with the 3LLs (which is why one-by-one popups are a bit of a bad idea), then it was easy pickings for the rest of the team. What was sad was that I was at 350 meters and nobody took pot shots against me (one of the Phracts had LB-10X ACs, which could have hurt me).
