HM...5 Med Pulse Lasers + 2 AC5 (firepower 40, heat management 1.18)

OR

1 ERLarge Laser + 2 AC5 + 2 Med Pulse Laser + 2 Small Pulse Laser?  (firepower 39, heat management 1.16)

Why not make that pair of SPLs into an MPL for 1 ER LL, 2 AC/5, 3 MPL?

I think I can squeeze all4 Med Pulse in the right an left torso while leaving the ER Large one.

I only need 1 ton (since I have 1 free), so I can drop a single heat sink or a ton of ammo (currently have 4 tons of ammo and a lot of heat sinks)

Why did you pick Endo-Steel and not double heat sinks?  The only reason to ever take single heat sinks is if you don't have the space for doubles (and even then, I've seen maybe one or two builds which benefit more from SHS), which you clearly have if you have 14 slots to spend on Endo-Steel.

0.1 vs 0.14 heat managment. 1 vs. 2 slots

When I have the tonnage and slots avialable, I think single heat sinks are a better choice.

AS for endo-steel. Endo frees up tonnage and ballistics are heavy.


Curretnly I'm sitting at firepower 42, heat managment 1.1  (3 Med Pulse, 1 Med, 1 ER Large, 2 AC5)

At close range I'm not using the ER large at all, since the DRP/heat ratio fro the med Pulse is far better.
2 Med Pulse = 12 damage for 8 heat in a shorter cycle
1 large = 9 damage and 8 heat.

Except for your engine heat sinks.  The effectiveness of the 10 engine heat sinks is actually doubled. As in with just DHS and your engine, you run as cool as a mech with SHS and 10 sinks mounted in addition to the engine.

The only builds I've seen that do better with SHS are the ones that fill every single crit slot not used on weapons with heat sinks, which you're not doing since you have Endo-Steel equipped.  Gimmick builds, basically.

So you're saying I should loose endo and take double- heat sinks?

Hmmm..... dunno if I will have the tonnage for it.

So there are HLPers still playing this! Huzzah :D

I finally decided to bother redownloading MWO, tho admittedly all I've managed to acquire at the moment is a questionable Vindicator (-1X, alternating between SLAS/LLAS/AC10 and MPLAS/MG/PPC/AC5 depending on mood, 71kph) and a painfully-slow Trebuchet (-5N, LRM15,LRM10,3ML,BAP,59kph)

Jumped back into the game after a long hiatus. They've revamped everything, it seems. I'm liking most of the changes, though.

For the moment I'm saving up for a Timberwolf (always my favorite 'Mech), but damn are Clan 'Mechs expensive...

I've messed around with Community Warfare some, but it seems like it's made more for pre-made teams, and I haven't found a unit to join yet.

Also, my chosen faction, the Free Rasalhague Republic, just seems to exist to get its ass kicked at the moment. With three Clans and two Successor States constantly invading from all sides, it's seemingly nothing but a series of defeats. I have some friends over in the Free Worlds League... maybe I'll switch over there once my contract's up.

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.

Currently contracted (~7 days) with Rasalhague.

I am currently ins some random unit, thinking of leaving.

Ah, I think I've seen you about from time to time. "Suralin" here, feel free to add me.

You know what? Screw Community Warfare.

If you're not part of a pre-made group, it's pointless. You're just a walking target for the other team's score. It doesn't matter how well you play, because the other team works together and your random-matched teammates cannot.

I've won maybe five or six CW matches, and that's only when we were lucky enough to be matched against non-pre-made groups.

I'm not touching CW again until/unless I join a team.  :mad:

Rawr.  So, I live again.  Who still plays?  CW is... interesting, but very problematic.  The thing I encounter most often is a full company of STK-3Fs stuffed to the gills with large lasers.  Not kidding.  Best case scenario, 2 lances.  Worst case, the whole damn team dropped Stalkers and melts your face off before you even know they're there.

I still play with the Skye Rangers, though not much. Urbanmech got released last Tuesday btw, so you can now shoot the omniscient Trashcan into tiny little bits.
Funnily enough most Urbies are NOT slow pieces of junk due to most everyone that bought one having enough of a slushfund to stow a new engine in it.
I've seen a 63L model with 3 ER Large Lasers that goes 73km/h(i think speed tweak was involved, but that's still fast for a trashcan on legs)
