    Based on the patch notes, could be something worth looking into, especially if includes erMeds, meaning if you wanted to, you could mix reg and er

    I came up with this same build too, but I didn't fit a TC1 due to lack of armor to strip away. 28 armor on each leg is really low: if a lucky AC20 / gauss will hit one of your legs, a smart mechwarrior will possibly find out and exploit such low armor.

    I think it's best to keep most lasers on the right side so you can completely and safely shield using your left side.

    With your build:
    • if you lose your right side, you are left with 2xERML and 17 DHS total
    • if you lose your left side, side, you are left with 7xERML and 13 DHS total
    Instead, if you move that single ERML and 2xDHS on the right arm:
    • if you lose the right side, you are left with 1x ERML and 15 DHS total
    • if you lose the left side, you still have a full 8xERML alpha strike and lose only 4 DHS (15 remaining)
    There is also the added benefit of full alpha strike when poking from the right side, so you don't have to fully expose your mech.
    Dagonus and Lorgot like this.
