Just played a round in it, yeah, the heat can be an issue if you fire everything. I'd imagine the explody-stalkers are newbies not too familiar with what heat will do to them. I've stuck with long-range LL bombardment and I must say, the effect sustained linked LL fire has is pretty impressive. And being able to back it up with missiles is pretty fun, too.
The Conquest game mode is, as I expected, a cluster****. Lights rule the day, and Assaults are liabilities, not assets.
And now I have a f**kton of money and I don't know what I should do with it. I could buy basically any mech without cutting into my Highlander fund, so what should I roll? I'm trying to decide between Cataphract 4X, Catapult C4, or just splurging and om nomming a Stalker 3F/5M. Advice?
