Did everyone grab their Free day of premium time yet? Supposedly adds on top of founders time.

Normally I get pissed off when I have to play the same map 3 times in a row, but Frozen City Night is just too damn cool.

I only got that map three times in ~4 hrs yesterday.  :nono: Forest Colony and River City left and right for me. Not that my AC/20 Hunch has a problem with RC :D
Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

lol my gaussdragon had issues with RC, so I made it a dakkadragon.

And singling a YLW and a hunchie in a commando is satisfying as hell.

Satisfying is going toe-to-toe with a pair of Atlases in a COM-2D, killing one, and almosting the other down to a single-medium-lasers-at-dawn.

And then I blew up, but it was worth it.

pshaw. Satisfying is acing a commando who thinks he's all bad with his lag shields and streak spam and ecm :p

Or a 3L. Usually a 3L. ****ers are everywhere it seems. The other side had 3 of them in my last match plus an ecm'd atlas (D-DC?) Very very depressing like.

We got caught by an uppity commando on RC, an advance scout started dancing around all 'can't catch me can't--'BOOOM.  Shot him in his face with a gauss round.  'Dude wtf just happened?' was all he said.

Hey, um, last I heard, the MWO site was infected with a deadly virus, has the all-clear been called?

Coming up on the next update: The Stalker and Conquest Mode (it's like take the five points and make sure they're yours long as you can, hopefully it can make Medium mechs more practical on the field again). Soon: TAG range upped to 750 meters to counteract ECM to make LRMs useful again... that's all I heard. Don't take it for fact.

I have a Highlander fund too... but I'm getting bored playing just Commando and Dragon all the time. 

EDIT: I just checked and if they stay true to TT prices, I have enough for a Highlander already.  Guess it's time to start a Catapult/Cataphract fund.

The site is all better now.

Conquest mode sounds nice*. Wish they would fix the horrible netcode first, then start balancing gear. 

*for organized groups, I can't even slightly imagine it not being a cluster**** in Pubs.

Yeah huh. Sadly, I just saw how much xp I had sitting on my 4G and 4SP (20k+ per) and cleared the fund buying/outfitting a laserback so I could dump some of the xp. My 4SP has become an adorable smash-fisting ninja god of the battlefield. Not even sure I want a Highlander after my last few matches with it.

Hahahah I know the feeling.  I have +46k sitting on my Dragon 1N.

8,936,080 C-bills.  The value might be different given that they price variants based on the cost of their equipment, so I'm using the TT value as a ballpark estimate.

Pretty much the standard I think: 250 standard engine for a struttin' 81kph base, endosteel, DHS (5 extra), 2x2 ML in the arms, ML in the head. 2 SRM 6, 3 tons ammo in the legs. Leg armor is at 39, but it might as well be in the teens. I can't remember a time I've been intentionally hit in the legs. 1.1 Heat efficiency, 55 firepower, 320 armor. A bit rough on the heat, but I'm a bit of a spaz in a circle-fight, so it could just be me.

Oooo. Thats not bad at all. I was kinda expecting it would be around a -K atlas.


*edit* tried finding it on the MWO forums but couldn't. Does anyone know what the laser dmg drop off out of range is off hand?

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.

I use them like a nice shoulder mounted shotgun to squik boats and whatevers from under 50m. Maybe 100 for an atlas or a not-awesome if Ive got its widest target profile, anything smaller or further out and lasers are da bestest.

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.

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).

"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."  :lol:

That's a very interesting update.

Capture Win and Assist have been removed.

So without rewards for capping, and identical rewards for win or lose, it seems like Assault is going to be a straight up deathmatch. I can work with that.
