I made one called the Hard Light Galaxy, with the tag HLGX.  I haven't been on the game in a while since my current rig is dying.

Can you spot anything familiar there? :p

Surprise!  Apparently Community Warfare actually made this game something resembling fun.  At least, I'm having fun playing it for possibly the first time, despite the long queues at certain times of day.

dont worry, you'll start hating the living **** out of it after being raped by 8 3erppc thunderbolts while your team flails like morons on the frozen map.



But yes, it's nice to break the monotony. Also, the resistance wave 2 mechs are starting to show up.

CW does a decent job of mixing it up.  I haven't actually encountered the wave of identical Thunderbolts yet.  Two or three, maybe, but not eight.  Split between two or more waves, perhaps.  Thunderbolts are probably the single most common 'Mech I end up encountering on the Inner Sphere side, but it's varied enough that I don't mind.  I fight primarily in the trial Cataphract and a Jagermech of my own tinkering (2x AC/20), so I tend to laugh at those Thunderbolts and then murder them when they can't out damage me at close quarters.

Stormcrows, on the other hand, are ****ing everywhere.

I'm pissed.

so I spent a lot of time to gather enough money to buy and fully upgrade the Battlemaster. Awesome looking mech, I love it's design.
I went for the variant with the most ballistic slots, because I like guns. I spent money on every upgrade that can help with mass/space.

and then I cursed the developers and the heavens. This fukken think can't mount ballistics for s***.
1 U-AC5 or 1 AC5. That's it.  You put in two machineguns and maybe, if you pick small lasers, you can put in 2 AC2's..but that's it.

You can't even mount 2 AC5!!! ON A FUKKEN ASSAULT MECH! THE BALLISTIC VARRIANT! (meanwhile, a DireWolf cna mount 4 U-AC5's + a frakton of lasers)
That's because some genius designer though it would be fun to put all ballistic mount in ONE arm. An arm that only has a few slots of space.

FRAK YOU DEVS.
Frak you to hell.

How the hell did you squeeze 2 AC5's in there?
There's not enough slots.

My loadout looks like this:
BLR-1D

And despite what the loadout page shows I can't fit 2 AC5 in the arm. I'm 1 slot short.

You're right, there's not enough slots for two Ultras in there, because Ultras take five crits each.  Regular AC/5s take four each, and you are capable of fitting two of them on the arm.

EDIT: Also you should put as much of that ammo in your legs and head as possible.  Losing an arm right now neuters your entire machine.

EDIT II: and maybe a liiiiiiittle armor on the back.  As is, anyone with a machine gun can just drive by and royally **** you up with crits.  Four or five points will stop that.

Nope, can't.
For some reason I have 7, not 8 slots available in the arm.

Also, I have armor on the back, just forgot to enter it.

Meh...Will try fillding some more.

That said U-AC5 + 2 AC2 offer greater DPS than 2 AC5's

Make sure you have slots available to shift around the dynamic ones.  Remove absolutely everything from that arm and try again.  It's impossible to have less than eight slots available to fit things into an arm if you rip everything out.

Even with arm and hand actuators, it is physically impossible to have less than eight free slots in a biped 'Mech.

I made a Hard Light unit.  It's the "Hard Light Brigade" tag "HLB".  Gimme a poke here with your in-game and I'll send an invite.

Clean up a slot somewhere else on the 'Mech.  That 'Structure Slot' is greyed out because every single other slot on your 'Mech is full, and the structure slot must go there or it can't go anywhere.
