It's also really fun to fire, compared to other weapons.  The AC/20 is the same way.

I find the delay mechanic helps me conserve ammo.  If a target suddenly changes direction at the last second I can hold the trigger and cancel the shot.

 This thing is made of win.  BLR-1D 

I've typically shied away from XLs but it was only way to mount the loadout, and so far the chassis has been pretty XL friendly.  I just stand a little behind the front line, select a target and let it rip with the AC2s and LLas.  It simply shreds mechs.

Oooh, I have to try that out.

Unfortunately, I do not have the C-Bills for an XL 350, but I do have a spare XL 330 lying around, maybe that will do until I get the funds. I can use the extra tonnage to max out the armor.

Made my first drop with a Spider.

And did more damage with it in one round than in three with my Jagermech.

Light 'Mechs are fun.

You're one of those rare people who can actually respond fast enough to not get dead, aren't you?  All my light piloting attempts result in me doing at most 200 damage, 1 of 6 games, usually.  Also if people would like to do group drops at some time, let me know.

That Spider is real awesome: Er-Large Laser, 4 Machine Guns and 10 Double Heat Sinks.
If you stay in Battleline and focus on hunting down other light Mechs or to kill damaged heavy Mechs 100 000 Credits and 500 XPs are not uncommon.

Oooh... shiny.

Skip to 22:07 for a preview of their next map. 

Not sure how I feel about this... art makes it look like we're fighting on the surface of the Death Star, but the supergreeb gets so noisy there're very few stunning vistas.  Gameplay-wise, this is going to be intense.

Yet an other map completely devoid of any colors. In this case, literally. It's all grey.

I'm cool with it.

Mind, I should also point out that UI 2.0 apparently does actually exist and looks pretty neat.

I'm enjoying it surprisingly much the past month or so.

Especially my new Thunderbolt TDR-9SE wit the jump jets and the large lasers.

Yeah, and PGI again managed to violently alienate a large portion of their fanbase by yet again having a package deal, this time with shiny gold 'Mechs for $500 each and not actually implementing anything that could help make the game more enjoyable like Community Warfare or UI 2.0.

[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

Nothing like killing the excitement of clan mechs by introducing them as a sale.  :blah:

As a sale for ridiculous money.

Seriously, if anyone actually pays 500$ for a slightly golden Mech, I might just feel morally obligated to visit them and laugh at them in person.

Well, I guess that's MWO for you. Though they did top themselves here. Notify me when the Dire Wolf is in "trail mechs" section, I'm not going to give them a penny, and especially not 500$. At least the models don't look too bad, but you can't really carry a game on looks alone. Sorry. I'd rather give this bloody underwater mission in MW2:GBL another shot. And I don't care MWO probably has missiles with more polies than MW2 mechs. MW2 is a better game, plain and simple.

Well, I've read through their recent command chair posts, and what they proposed sounds interesting.  Attack/Defend mode is going to rely around defending your base's primary systems such as generator and communications array (sounds a lot like Tribes: Ascend, which is a lot of fun) and you'll get to choose where the turrets go.  It's just... the progress they've made has me thinking they've been on a 4 month vacation and are just now getting back to the office and dusting off their project and going 'oh **** we blew all our dev money on hookers and cocaine, quick, ANOTHER SALE!'.

I mean seriously, how bullheaded do you have to be to completely miss the fact that your client base is really upset that you don't even seem to have an engineering team and appear to be spending 99% of your money making more sale packages?  What the **** are they paying Niko Snow for?  To tell them they're the greatest dev team in the world and that nothing's wrong and the 20+ pages of rage and/or ragequit are 'a minor issue'?

It seriously feels as if they've stopped development altogether and are riding the wreckage as far as they can.  Unless they deliver a frakking trueborn unicorn on Tuesday, I can draw no other conclusions.

EDIT:  And seriously?  After 5 months of saying 'new game modes and clans are just around the corner,' the best they can do is 'uhhh... Skirmish and Attack/Defend!'  You have an entire franchise of battles and battle types to draw from and the only thing you can think to do is remove the bases from Assault mode and add a base attack mode?  Why the **** not add a Clan Invasion mode, where a company of IS mechs is pitted against a binary of Clan mechs?  Or what the ****, do a goddamn Trial of Possession, where players can bid mechs, C-Bills and equipment?

They've had 4 months and all they've got are two gamemodes that have been the staple of other free-to-plays for ages.

DOUBLE EDIT:  Holy ****.  I just checked the Clan Collection feedback thread once more.  196 pages.  196 PAGES in two days.  'A small, vocal minority' indeed.  I don't think a unicorn will be enough.  They're going to need the miracle power of cyberjesus if they want to survive this.
