Yeah, the beauty of the Stalker is that you can boat it for anything, and it can kill anything damn near fast. (The most common downfall of it is just proper heat management is required.)

I was playing a Raven-3L (two M-Lasers, 1 M-Pulse, 2 Streak-2s) and had two ECM Commandos on my side... won six matches straight, and we wreaked havoc on a lot of Mechs (we were able to slaughter or at the least annoy a hell of a lot of lights and heavies, and most of the time, we had at most two casualties).

Scoring kill shots on Atlases and Laser-boat Hunchbacks has never been so much fun.

Why not just go 2MPL or three MLs + an extra DHS?

I too caved and bought a Stalker.  I didn't likes it. :nono: I miss having arms to absorb long range fire and the beautiful dakka song of UACs I got with my Atlasaurus. And then I hit a Commando in the back with 5 ASRM6s and the carcass flew like 30 meters. :D I'm still not sure if that is a sign of lulz to come or payment for suffering with it through a dozen matches before then.

The weird thing is the Stalker is literally the only 'Mech that never comes back with arms still attached if I die. Possibly because of a lack side torsos too.

I just got myself a 5N so I could start eliting the dragons, decked it out with AC5/UAC5/SSRM2/2xML.  When assaults stand still let the lulz begin.

Laugh at how terrible it is?

News from the front:

Patch is up. Hero Commando (four lasers), some memleaks supposedly fixed, there's a boat in Forest Colony Snow, NARC/TAG spots get paid... and that's all I know.

Oh and we get Betty's startup sequence (player turns on console, and everything powers up in countdown).

*cue Spider Pig theme* All it takes is probably an anti-ECM unit, a few Streak volleys and some accurate laser aiming, and that's that.

One time, I was in Caustic in my Shortcat, and while I was throwing alpha volleys into an Atlas's back... a Spider showed up in my face, then one alpha volley and I basically turned him to mech shrapnel (I cored all his torso sections and blew off his arms).

Still, that was a bit cooler than another Caustic encounter in my L-Laser Cat-C1 (3 LLs, 2 SSRM-2s). There were about four Atlases, but I was able to expose their front CTs with the 3LLs (which is why one-by-one popups are a bit of a bad idea), then it was easy pickings for the rest of the team. What was sad was that I was at 350 meters and nobody took pot shots against me (one of the Phracts had LB-10X ACs, which could have hurt me).

Netcode seems to be much less bad than it used to be too. Less bad meaning I spent the first three-four matches wondering why I couldn't hit light mechs with my patented 'turn so they are on the edge of your screen and shoot straight ahead' technique. And then I was like OH **** I CAN SHOOT THE MODEL AND IT REGISTERS DAMAGE!

So many sad little Ravens got nom'd in the face with AC10s. :D

I am pleased with this update.  It wasn't big in terms of content, but they did address some critical issues.  For me, I can now play more than 2 games without getting the dreaded 4 fps/block-text bug, and have a higher fps in general.  I think the mech startup sequence is a nice addition, beats out the boring countdown.  I am also very enthused by what I read here and I can't wait to see where it goes.  I just hope they hurry it up, the anticipation is killing me.

You mean that "Reactor: Online - Weapon Systems: Online - Sensors: Online" is in the game?

Neat.

Yeah, they messed with some stuff. I got this really nasty retro TV pixelated bug that just ruined one of my games. I think overall things are improving though.

Those combat support strikes seem pretty cool. I don't see how they can implement such a thing without going pay-to-win though.

I hope they buff the **** out of machine guns. That would be nice for the Dragon-5N.

1. I also heard that for base defense missions in Assault, if you have a Command Console, you could be able to control the defense turrets (that's coming way later, I think). Hopefully discourages the assault rush...

2. As much as I would love to see classic Machine Guns in action (2 damage with 200 rounds per ton), or even a really good damage/ROF buff, I can't think but imagine hearing "hurr durr AC/2s are useless, ye bastards"* in my head all the time.

* I have seen quite a few AC/2 operators fight rather competently, though 4x5 Phracts and Ultra Ilyas give me more cause for concern.

You can only buy cosmetic stuff and mechs with real money. The former is obviously a non-issue, the later (except for hero mechs) can be earned in-game... but modules can only be "gained" through grinding, no exceptions.

Hero mechs have a custom paint-job and grant a bonus (+30%) to money, so yeah, they make it easier to *buy* modules once unlocked, but before that you have to earn them the old fashioned way (playing).

Machine guns have a slightly different role in MWO, namely as crit-seekers. Criticals works slightly different than they did in older games or tabletop. Until a section is stripped of armor, criticals don't happen, but once stripped each and every hit has a chance to knock something out...

...now the machine-gun doesn't do much damage. Never will... but it fires pretty darn fast, has plenty of ammo and each and every hit on an exposed area has a chance to knock something out.
