lol JuJu on the other team with 1k.
His 'mech was the only one I didn't get a chance to shoot lol
Well, I guess the same screen cap could be used for the tbr 1000+ thread too
Surprisingly successful considering it was during the ping spike last night. 6MLas, 2 MPLas, XL. Completely standard round, enemies had just too little hill fighting and no LRMs so I just held them at arms length on I9.
Thanks Pooty! I modified my Scalpel build as you recommended, and well, here I am! 1xLPL, 5xML.
Hard fought battle on HPG. We formed a 4-5 mech fireteam that flanked and managed to gut most of the enemy team, but we had many players who died fast. The match really turned against us at the end, down 7-10.
Me and ThatGuy539 were last, up against 5 mechs. ThatGuy managed to take down two as we hopped around an entrance and tried to hold as much cover as possible, but he went down to the final three. I had no arms, and lost most of my armor.
The hunchback, panther and cataphract attempted to overwhelm me at the end, but I took down the panther with a shot of the 2xMPL, then managed to take down the hunchie with a couple shots to the CT. The cataphract had a lot of his armor left, but I suspect ran out of ammo for his ballistic, so he was down to 4xML. I took an arm off, he took one of my legs off, and we traded fire for what seemed like a minute, spreading damage as well as we could. I opened his side torso, causing him to hide around a corner, trying to shield it. I managed to whittle down his CT as he tried to take my last leg off. I've never had such a tense match. I finally made my way through his armor and took out his CT.
I've gotta say, my heart was definitely pounding those last few minutes. I guess it's moments like this that make the game for me.
My build is the "Death Star." (I didn't realize it was a build... I just built an 8xML 1X, couldn't figure out how to use the last 2 tons, so changed two to 2xMPL) I use the 6xML in the arms in one group for most of my work, but use the 2xMPL in my side torsos when I'm in close and need a stronger alpha. The MPLs are also great, as they are heat neutral when used on their own.
Damn sooo close...
Thats massive how did you manage that? That looks like a fun battle, you wouldn't happen to have it recorded?
I play on my laptop, decent enough but can't record, basically laser-vomited the whole time with 5ML-1LL in the arms on max DHS/armor build, so with XL280. Don't really know how I got so few kills, I should have at least 3-4 more in this match, but somehow people with red CTs didn't die or someone else would get them.
I'm really happy about this mech and BlackJacks in general, don't know why I skipped them for so long time.
Had to make an account to comment on this. BJ-1X is so sexy I can't believe there aren't more in the queue. Using Blagg Zear's 6xML 2xMPL build which is fantastic. Can barely break 1k with other mechs but have to form a 2k club for the BJ soonish. Especially miffed about the 1,7k game: Barely failed to finish the Executioner which would've made it a draw. The Centurion was pretty much fresh and my mech was already cored at that point so would've been hard to win. Also wasted like 30 secs running because someone told me it'd be a draw without any bases capped. Much regret.
1700 is crazy, 1400 to. With the new MM im lucky if i get my 800 damage games.
i get 1000+ damage with my ARROW.
loadout : 2x Large Pulse Laser, 1x Medium Pulse Laser, 6x Machine Gun
Modules : Machinegun range lvl5 , Large Pulse Laser Range lvl5, Improved Gyros, Advanced Zoom
(no artillery nor air strike module)
Holy heck, had a 1000 Damage match in my BJ-1 the match felt good but I didn't think it was 1000 damage good.
Classic build with 2 Large pulse and 6 machine guns. Harder to do anymore but glad to still be able to do it
