We could aim for Monday too, of course. Or possibly later on, Sunday.
Okay. We're doing a MechWednesday MechWarrior night tonight, at 19:30 PM. Be there or be some kind of not-battlemech-pilot. Late warning because, y'know. I'm scatterbrained?
Okay. Tonight's session is a go -- remember to join the steam group (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RockPaperSRM) for all that lovely steam stuff, otherwise meet up on Mumble. :3
And thank you to Nim and Simmura for a great night of mechstomping! So, when would everyone like the next one?
Nim, Jim, and Sim walk into a bar...
Totally missed it sorry :|
My usual ride is a Cataphract 3D.
CTF-3D (70 tons)
1x LB 10-X AC
1x Ultra AC/5
XL 280 Engine, 13 Double Heatsinks, Jump jets, Beagle Active Probe + Sensor range module.
64.8 KPH (w/ speedtweak mastery pilot skill bringing it up to around 70 KPH)
I have a PPC catapult with a pair of AC/2s and a nippy little Commando with streak SRMs. Figure I'll get a Cataphract to continue with the C theme.
I've been running with this setup recently and I kinda like it.
4 x Medium Pulse Lasers
1 x Ultra AC/5
STD Engine 300, 13 DBL Heatsinks, C.A.S.E
tl;dr It gets warm but I'm happy with it.
What I like about high-heat rigs is that, typically, you have to think about how and when you're going to shoot. The temptation to go all-out alpha all the time is huge, of course, but I like the dynamic of switching between lasers and ACs -- something I do a lot of in my Cataphract, although I think it's considerably less toasty with 1.13 Heat eff.
Dammit, I'm meant to be saving up for an assault rig, but you're making me want to try speedy dragons again. ;_;
Would you go for the additional fragility of XL engines, with that dragon, as a matter of interest?
Anyone up for MechWednesday MechWarrior tomorrow? The new patch just brought us spiders. (EEK! SPIDERS!)
Yes, 7:30 UK time. :3
Also, handy mechbay program thing: http://mwo.smurfy-net.de/mechlab
I should be able to make it along tonight. Swapping PPCs for a glass and a piece of cardboard to deal with the plague of spiders.
Honestly, the past few days in MWO have ironically, been like Macross.
Okay. MechWarrior MechWednesday is a go - join us in the Mumble!
