Re: What are you playing right now?
There's a Skype group set up for MWO chat with Esarai, Aesaar, Hades, and I.  Either of you interested in playing with us?

All this talk of MWO has led me to dig out my old copy of MC2 and download a load of old mods. Right now playing Rebirth of white company and getting my ass kicked by Steiner  :sigh: good times

Re: What are you playing right now?
I have had a glance and when I have more time (I'm swamped with coursework at the moment and just looking for quick few mins of blowing **** up) I will be giving them a go. Its the same reason I haven't started MWO yet either though once I have the time I will probably get right in to it.

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
Had some kickass games of MWO with Esarai, Aesaar, and NGTM-1R.  Our final match before I quit for lunch had the party of Esarai, Aesaar, and I taking the top three slots on the scoreboard at the end.

 Finished Crysis & Crysis Warhead. Goddamn, I forgot how much better these were when compared to Crysis 2. I've considered installing Wars and checking online but from what I heard Power Struggle is a hollow shadow of it's former self nowadays.

Re: What are you playing right now?
MWO managed to elite my barbershop quartet of HBK-4s.


Put together and vetted a new HBK-4H just today.  AC-20 backed by 5 SLas and a Standard 260 engine, with the speed tweak it makes 92.7 kph.  AC-20 at 92.7kph is a hoot.

Just finished Saint's Row The Third and MechWarrior 3. Man, that was intense. Trying to do Pirate's Moon (the MW3 expansion), that is presenting a bit of a problem.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I actually had fewer issues playing Mech3 on Windows 7 than on XP. The trick is to use an nVidia or Intel graphics chip, as they seem best equipped to handle the steaming pile of compatibility issues that is DirectX 6.1.

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
Mechwarrior Online for me as well.

Since I just started and am reluctant to pay real money right now, the only 'Mech I actually own is a Spider-5D.

2 Med. Lasers (1 in the arm and 1 in the torso) and a Guardian ECM. Works excellently for a harassment/scout role.


The other day one of my matches had half our team in Light mechs vs an entire team of Heavies and Assaults. Enemy team was pretty confident that with that much firepower on their side, they couldn't lose (though they were smart enough to devote a mech or two to base guarding duty to prevent capture).

Result: win by annihilation of enemy team. Only mechs left standing were the Lights.

Lesson learned: do not underestimate Light mechs, especially with ECM. They can run circles around Assaults (like Char of Gundam fame said: "It doesn't matter how powerful you are if you can't hit me") and flank the bejeesus out of Heavies.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Why the hell would you use a Spider and not the Raven? :wtf:

Re: What are you playing right now?
Because I like the Spider.

Seriously, though, mainly speed. True that the Raven is a bit heavier and has more hardpoints, but it's also 30-50 kph slower (depending on variant).

Also Ravens are ugly.  :P

Just pre-ordered Poker Night 2, so I should be working on that before too long.

I ran it on an XP box (my craptop had serious GFX issues, hardware mode had trash, software mode had inconsistent high-speed problems as in I would pause for a second then move a large gap forward while at full throttle, despite me trying to hog the processors with CPUGrab).

Boy, I gave one of my team mates an Annihilator with dual Clan ER PPCs and dual AC-10s (had 80 rounds of ammo total), he scored a lot of kill shots. (It helps that the MFBs start the campaign with almost 1000 rounds of AC-10 ammo.)

In Ops Zone 4, I only had a few Mechs left and said screw it, ER PPC bumrush (I kinda wasted a lot of my LRM and MG ammo by boating it, and hell, I had about 150 Clan Double Heat Sinks to waste on my team mates by the time I reached that area) and I gave myself LB-10X ACs (to core CTs) or AC-10s (if legging for salvage is a priority) with three or four standard MLs. Surprisingly, that worked.

Lesson learned: do not underestimate Light mechs, especially with ECM.

I just had to post this, I could not pass it up.

Granted the 3L is the best light atm and SDRs are never going to be high damage dealers, but I'll admit they always look like they are having fun...



Plus if the AS7s are firing skyward in impotent rage and not at me sneaking around the buildings popping off AC-20 rounds then all the better.
