Funny, as I looked over this build, my mind actually went in the other direction. 40% cooling with 18 DHS and the proper skilling is quite viable....
I have never seen anything like this with seemingly competing factions within the same company getting dragged out into public.
That's going to be super duper hot
My understanding is that was IGP forcing that on PGI. I don't know how PGI felt about it
With the low armor of the Boar's Head variant, this seems like it is very undergunned for a 100 ton mech.
They've been holding firm on "it's better this way".
Very underwhelming plan for 1st Quarter. That is literally the least they could do in 3 months.
Welcome back! Enjoy your trip back up to the top ranks. :D
It's actually simpler than that. When you click Save & Share Loadout, just copy the plain link and paste it right into your comment. The board plugin...
It doesn't much matter but you'll never die from engine damage without losing a torso completely.
The ERML in the arm with the LLs is a good idea. Sucks that it makes the cooldowns sync up worse though.
There's no need to crit pad for the engine....
The Scorch is more survivable because it doesn't have the easily targeted missile pods. But the arms hang quite low so there's a bit of a tradeoff....
Drop that LFE to 300 and change to Light FF and you can get another DHS.
With skills, that's more than enough MRM ammo. I'd be wary of shaving leg armor that much considering all the ammo in them
Magic Pain Glove runs this build very successfully. For most people, results will vary. I know his build is slower and I think carries more ammo.
Given the low time to jam and the heat, I think there are many situations where a single RAC2 is better than a RAC5 straight up. If PGI is going to...
I would recommend against Laser AMS on a RAC build. This thing is going to be hot as it is.
I also don't recommend chain-firing except in very...
Second discussion from just a couple days ago
First discussion, from way back in October
Over the last couple of months, PGI has started to talk about restarting development on Mechwarrior Online. A welcome change to be sure. They've made...
Anything with a couple of ballistic points and at least 2 missile hardpoints will be OK. But these are 2 weapon systems that don't have a lot of...
With LRMs you might have a chance. with ATMs and no JJs, I don't like your odds
This does more damage that it has a right to. It has a very high rate of fire and can actually get sorta hot.
the VIP had mega structure and armor. I doubt even dual Heavy Gauss to the head could oneshot it
Not serious. But you gotta admit, that would add some unpredictability to the game
Bring back Escort!
Welcome to the Mechspecs Thomster A couple tips:
Make sure you follow the posting template for your thread title. It makes it easier for others to...
I'm curious what your experience is with heat banks. I find them not worth the tonnage as the increase in heat cap is rarely enough to make a...
It originally comes from old school Battletech lore that describes certain mechs as being particularly effective in melee and others as being not so...
