The TDR-9S got a huge nerf(probably deserved) to it's ER PPC quirks, it had 50% less heat gen when you had those equipped, now it's only 25% for ER PPCs(combined Energy Weapon and ER PPC specific quirks).

So i'm guessing that's why Stalkers became so prevalent among IS forces. I'm a little annoyed that they changed the BNC-3M's quirks from the Large Pulse Lasers to something completely different right after they introduced its Champion variant with all those LPLs, kind of defeats the point of building that Champion to use the quirks if you're changing them the next patch anyways :/

now its stalkers? when i stopped even bothering to try, the meta was thunderbolts and ppc inferno.

Yep.  Still see some TDRs doing their PPC spam thing, but not everyone all the time.

I'm annoyed that clan mechs seem to have more negative quirks than IS mechs.  I get trying to balance things, but it seems things have gone a bit too far and clan mechs are no longer as fearsome as they used to be.

Funnily enough, my two most successfully used mechs are Stalkers and Timberwolves...

Also, you did not run into many stormcrows lately, have you? :p

It's often been Stalkers down the years. It always comes back to them, honestly. Hence why I have one.

My Misery is still a go-to unit when I'm not doing anything in particular and just want a bit of firepower.

I am still trying to emulate Liao Urbanmech with AC-20 somehow.

Then I will lurk and surprise people with my massive penis gun.

Actually according to my Record Sheets 3025 copy, but I'm poor so the problem is affording it.

Decided to have lols and build a mech from BattleTech canon.  Allow me to present the Dire Wolf 'Hohiro', piloted by Hohiro Kurita during the Clan Invasion.  Did 1171 damage and 6 kills on the first solo drop.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

The **** is this?

Not as stupid as it sounds. ComStar did supposedly hire a number of smaller, more elite mercenary units for Tukkayid.

The stupid part is PGI deciding to go with the largest battle in all of BattleTech for a hundred years in any direction on the timeline as their first community event.

They quite literally cannot do a bigger one.  At all.

 
What about the invasion of Strana Mechty? Wasn't that also a pretty big campaign?

Actually pretty small, since it was fought in the manner of a Clan Trial.

The problem with BT is, most of the large exciting battles are actually large, exciting campaigns. Large pitched battles like Tukayyid are a huge anomaly.

There were really only two pitched battles of the Clan Invasion, maybe four. The for sures are Luthien and Tukkayid; the maybes are Rasalhague and Twycross.

The only one of the destruction of Clan Smoke Jaguar was the invasion of Huntress. None for Operation Audacity or the FedCom Civil War that reached that scale.

I'm just concerned that they attempt Tukayyid right off the bat.  Why not start with the earlier battles for the capitals?  Ohhhhhhhh... just checked Sarna.  The Battle of Tukayyid went from May 1 to 20.  They're trying to keep sync with the canon events.
