Mechwarrior Online is waiting for u
These threads really are a pile of garbage, aren't they?
If the autistic support group aren't circlejerking themselves with shitposts, these threads are quiet as a grave. If they are poisoning the thread, then it's so awful to read you'll wonder if getting assfucked by pgi is less nauseating.
Just... let it die. There's nothing left here, only death.
Gotta mine deep for any kind of fun.
I got 1/4th of the grind done.
MWO question: What all earns you points at the end of the round? Is it just damage or do other things factor in (specifically covering allies in ECM).
I ask because I always seem to score consistently higher (200-500) when tromping around in the Trial Raven than I do in my (very few) actual owned mechs. I'm curious if its because apparently twin ERLL works for me or if its instead because the ECM is boosting my score?
everytime you see something pop up at the bottom right of your targeting hud
>Lance In Formation
these things add up and are added to your score at the end of the match. Damage is also factored in, but it's not a 1:1 scaling, I don't know how it works.
since this wasn't in the OP

Truly a fine match to end uo.
Fuck this game, fuck PGI, and fuck anyone who gives harebrained money.
I want everytbody who's been intimately familiar with this franchise to be afflicted with ebola.
>>implying that's not cute
Vass why are you so goddamn rumprangled these days, MWO hasn't changed in any noticeable way in months yet you've decided to be extremely mad at it lately. I mean I get it, the game is bad, but it's not this bad.
75 qualifying games of halloween faggotry played, and so far I've gotten:
>150 MC (yay, I'll get a single mech bay *if* they ever go on 50% sale!)
>1,2 million C-bills (not even enough to pay for mandatory double heatsinks on an IS mech)
>7 priority artillery strikes (and you can't even sell these virtual turds
>4 priority air strikes (did I mention that you can't sell these things? well you can't throw them away either)
>3 worthless cockpit pumpkin heads (NOBODY CARES PIG. NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR ART INTERN DIARRHEA.)
>10k GXP (free player with no mech bays, all existing mech skills maxed out and no cbills to buy weapon modules with? yeah, like I can use this junk.)
This is what it must feel like to be Charlie Brown. Getting a rock one after the other.
I've been tied up with work all week and I haven't even gotten a chance to play a single match. Too tired to do anything but post on chinese imageforums.
I hope I get lucky and take a mad kitty home by the end of it.

Well that just kind of soured the whole thing
If I have cl small pulse laser cooldown and range is there any other weapon module i could get that would apply?
i ask because i'm about to unlock the master slot and am not sure if i'm just missing an option in the weapons modules.. would be nice if there was a better layout..
tbqhwymm I'm gonna be playing it but I won't be paying for it. Modern Fallout games all fall into the "shit but fun" category and I'm not about to hand over 60 burgerbux to deal with day 1 gamebryo crashes and FUCK NEWSPAPERS dialogue wheels.
It's Creation Engine, the same one used for Skyrim and not Gamebryo you shitlord.
SMFH fam you all up in the kool-aid and don't even know the flavor qft.
Well hopefully there's a good non yify tier torrent soon
Fuck Dashing, he's a loudly opinionated southerner and a literal who.
>finally available for robots
>nobody is playing robots anymore
What a shame. I guess I just have to grind by myself
or go play good games.
I just realized that you still gain xp on trial mechs
You just can't spend it unless you actually own the specific mech
The trial raven currently has like 20,000 xp on it
I guess I need to get one now? Shit I was just planning on abusing the free nice raven
Hey guys, completely unrelated but what's the best way to track down my half-brother?
Is there a particular database like Intelius you'd recommend? A PI would be too damn expensive.
I just miss my bro man.

Some sort of perspective sorcery at work.

November roadmap: http://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/213255-november-road-map/
>the this months edition of SOON™ has arrived
That's not a scale picture, it's a point of view picture. MW4 felt like people running around in mech suits until the infantry and battle armor were introduced in MekPak 3 and the sense of scale could actually be appreciated.
I'm going to be Revolver Ocelot from MGS5. There's a party downtown; my plan is to show up, say "6 shots, more than enough to kill anything that moves" and then pound 6 shots and die. Also I will be telling people that they're pretty good and mreowing all night, I imagine almost nobody will get it because normies don't play MGS and idgaf.
I'm going to drinking with dudebot apparently
hope it's fun
There's got to be some sort of algorithm modifier with this grab bag event. I haven't gotten a single mech bay, let alone the timber wolf (c). Instead, I've gotten four cockpit items, fuckloads of GXP and nearly 20 priority arty/ air strikes and UAVs!
Maybe if we played some videogames?
>more and more of the team spending 100% of their time working on Community Warfare Phase 3, the patches over the next little while will be on the leaner side leading up to that release
Same as it ever was.
But dont they also need man hours for the steam launch?
You are.. retarded. It's just a simple percentage. Quit overthinking things. You've probably opened less than 100 fucking grab bags and the mech is probably a 1% chance. Kill yourself.
I want this meme to stop
We're guaranteed a Timber Wolf if we get all the redemptions right?
Statistically you should have one after all 100 redemptions so the chances are probably 1% on each prize for the Wuff. We all know how statistics usually screw you over.
I have 125 chances to get one :^)
Even the king of lying flies said: "Statistically, everyone should be able to get one."
But 125 chances to get a 1% chance drop? Them's still not good odds, son. 0.007937 or 0.79% chance.
What a spooky night to be alive.
I'm gonna give Dead money a second chance, just because of the day.
>put a pair of Ultra-AC10s on a TBR-C(C)

NOOOPE. NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPITY NOPITY NOOOPE.
The very best you can do with that walking ice box filled with frozen negro feces is with the A, B, C and D variants, which have an energy hardpoint in the center torso that the prime variant does not, while using 5x C-ML's.
That's it. A 45 ton mech with no jumpjet capabilities, runs 130 (140 something with speed tweak), no ECM capability on the entire chassis, and has less firepower than the arctic cheater, or the firestarter.
Not only that, but the fridge filled with african fecal matter can't even run itself cool. 1.19/ 2 heat mitigation, is the best it can do with 4x clan double heatsinks, and that is fucking terrible.
Ice Ferrets are a waste of space. If you want to waste C-bills, go ahead. NEVER. EVER. PAY FOR IT. DO NOT PAY FOR THIS CRAP.

Kakos emits an aura of anti-fun, his memes are strong but he turns everyone around him into shitters until he collapses in on himself and becomes a shitter himself.

WHEN IS PIG GONNA SCRAP MORDOR!? I HATE THAT SHITTY MAP SO MUCH!
I don't play Mechwarrior Online anymore, since I would prefer spending my time cooking and playing other early access games, but science has proven that the Awesome 8R is the best mech in the game
>creating a bot to shitpost as Kaelus after making a kaelus bot for mumble
Thanks, Kaelus. It's true. I'm glad we have you here to guide us in these dark times.
>>tfw you debate mixing different kinds of SRM launchers to better fit the tubes on your mech when you realize modules are segregated by launcher size
So even though my QKD-4H has 4 tubes in the chest and 12 on the left torso I either have to take 3xSRM4 and be undergunned or 3xSRM6 and fire staggered volleys. FUCK.
Where did the tonnage... Well, I guess that's where the tonnage went.
>people who got Fallout 4 early are posting screens and gameplay now and it literally looks like its just Fallout 3
"A pair of LRM-20 racks supplemented by two Extended Range Large Lasers make up the bulk of the Timber Wolf's firepower. The Timber Wolf also has an array of lighter, shorter ranged weaponry for use once the 'Mech draws closer to its prey: two ER Medium Lasers and a Medium Pulse Laser."
probably gonna just use mediums anyway.
My last comment was specifically referring to the pulse laser. Reducing the size of the LRM launchers is simply a gameplay necessity for MWO because nothing works like the tabletop. Even the original Mad Cat wasn't a very well optimized mech; it was just one of the few Clan mechs that actually had full armor for its weight which made it stand out from the rest. Playing a pure Prime in MWO is just too much pain.
I'm consistently getting 500+ damage per game with the LRM 20's, and I did add the pulse laser in the middle. The only thing from the prime I don't have is the machineguns but fuck that lol. Extra tonnage went to double heatsinks to support the lasers
I feel like a Catapult that can also vomit lasers.
Remove your LRM 20's, and use Artemis LRM15's. 20's spread their damage out more. LRM15's fire faster, create less heat, and concentrae their damage better. Artemis helps them concentrate it even more, and all for less weight and critspace than LRM20s.
Thank me later. Faggot.
Fixed that for you.
apparently the PvP is set in Solaris
can you imagine since the voice actor tier is unlocked if they got George Ledoux to voice the commentary like in MW4, that was the best part about that game
went to testing grounds to try this theory out
>bunch of 20's hit dirt
>reload same map, same target, same distance/angle
>all missiles hit
well I'm sold on that
Do clan mechs get some survivability and damage bonuses in CW or something?
15 minutes before I was playing a CW match, I killed a guy in a timber wolf prime by coring him with 3x large pulse lasers within 20 seconds, a duel between him and me. He was running a gauss rifle + medium laser vomit build.
I end up against the same guy in CW in yet another duel situation, but this time he kills me within 10 seconds with the same setup.
And this repeats with all four of my mechs. I now know not to play CW, but still.
What the fuck is going on?
Only reasonable explanation I can come up with is that maybe he's a dipshit who thought it'd be a good idea to lower his center torso armor to the same amount as his side torso under the reasoning that it didn't matter thanks to his XL engine.
You probably taught him that was a terrible mistake.
From the depths of hell strides the atlas emperor.
>i'd rather spend my time cooking
You're only supposed to eat three times a day fatass. How much time can one person spend prepping food to shove down their throat. What a disgusting fat ass.
>endo/ferro on an assault
There are damn few assaults that those work on.
The Atlas is not one of them.
I tried that shit in closed beta. Was fun for screwing around, but that's it.
Pretty much all the OP mechs are freely available at this point. Just get a clan mech you'll be fine. Arctic Cheetah/Stormcrow/Timber Wolf/Dire Wolf are all great. I haven't tried out Ebon Jaguars or Summoners yet. Don't care for Gargoyles.
double digits everywhere
>tfw no madcats howling at the moon.
This is probably a retarded question but..
I used to play living legends a little and the coolest thing was going no mech, and that gun that killed mechs and jetpack..
Am I retarded in thinking MWO is living legends somehow licensed or something but they just didn't include that class? Or is this in fact a different game with nothing to do with living legends except for the fact it's on the same engine (maybe LL was on cryengine 2, i forget, was hit by a car a couple years back. have bad memory sorry)
>tfw all the robots I like are shitmechs.
Reminder that Inner Sphere Mercenaries are objectively the most interesting characters in every era of Battletech.
>vagina-ass still harping about my WVR-7D(L) loadout
It wrecks people in public matchmaking just fucking fine, and looks great while doing so, and that's all that matters to me.
is seismic sensor a good second mech/weapon module? just unlocked master slot
already have radar dep
this is going on an arctic cheetah prime with 6 sm pulse lasers. im thinking the 200m range range mech detection might be useful?
Meanwhile, jump jets that don't need a PowerPoint graph to explain how they work.
I had enough fun with the memetastic mechcommander gold.
Build a lance of 4 jumping madcats, fitted with aces, give them 2 CERPPCs and then missiles until you filled your tonnage. Jump across the map and
HAVE A TON OF FUN!
I want to support this, but at the same time I know I'd never play it because I dislike turn based strat/tactical games.
Should I do it anyway, just for my love of robots /gerg/?
Well no, man. Screw it. Life is too short. Don't just bandwagon on this shit. I haven't pledged anything an I'm just gonna wait til it's released and some player reviews have come in.
Turn based mechcommander seems like it'd be a lot of fun
and Mechwarrior Tactics had some real potentialbut I'm not about to blindly flush 20$ down the drain.
I lost a 20$ bill over the weekend and wasted money sucks.
But the entirety of the original boardgame was always multiplayer.
It is only in the world of custom minmaxing videogames and 100% accurate weapons did anything bad happen.
Well if you don't like strategy then it is probably not in your interest to fund it then. What a shame; maybe you just haven't played a good thinking-man's game yet. There is still more than 40 hours to mull it over.

This event is worse than a mobile game gachapon
So it turns out that Microsoft owns the rights to any work done by PGI and HBS's licence is through Microsoft which means HBS isn't giving them one penny.
Still not giving any money till I see a finished product
When can I get this as a clan warhorn?
No actually they don't
Anything digital made by PGI related to Mechwarrior is owned by MS.
PGI has a licence to use the IP anything they create is owned by the licence holder.
It would be like saying Relic owns all the models for shit they made in DoW games.

Timber Wolf is the actual name of the Mech. Mad Cat is what pilots of the Inner Sphere called it. Their targeting solutions kept switching between Marauder and Catapult, so they just called it MAD CAT.
Well the other guy already said what need be said, but I'm curious as to what you thought the MadCat was.
I wish I was fucking haruko.
...no, I take that back.
I have three other Highlanders and they're not shit, they're actually kinda fun. I thought I'd grind out another one for shits 'n' giggles.
Are you completely ignorant of Battletech? Clan mechs have proper Inner Sphere names and then the awful names the clans and PGI use.
Mad Dog = Vulture
Hellbringer = Loki
Summoner = Thor
Timber Wolf = Madcat
Dire Wolf = Daishi
This is only a few of course, but it's generally agreed that the IS names are better by leagues and miles.
If you had the unfortunate experience of having played MechAssault that might be the source of your confusion, as that game treated the Clan and Inner Sphere names for the same Mech as different Mechs.
Im MA1 and 2 they just used the different names instead of giving the mechs their proper variant names.
So a Vulture would have 4 LRM racks and 2 lasersand 2 autocannons, while a Mad Dog might have 4 lasers and 2 LRMracks with machine guns, etc or whatever
Look at the footage yourself, where do you see a source of light or a shadow being cast? Not even the muzzle flash of the laser rifle emits any light, not even the characters have shadows.
But well memed lad.

Gamebryo is some cutting edge tech, dawg.
It is PGI's position at this time that bullying is not allowed.
October 2012 - May 2017
I totally am, but that's okay. We've been having immense amount of fun over the past couple years, despite our main game being a piece of shit.
