I think they will have paint jobs you can buy for real money. I doubt you'll just be able to do whatever you want cosmetically for free. It is a F2P game after all.


Also, don't turn Post-processing to Very High, it actually makes the game look worse. High seems to be fine for me.

do the trees and buildings not blow up? mechwarrior was the first game i ever played that you could blow up most of the world.

what seems to work well is having light mechs as spotters, some catapult missile boats in the back, and some atlases to absorb damage

i just went from a 7 kill game with my atlas against atlases and dragons to 0 kill game where all i saw was two jenners. they ran around me in circles as the heavies shot lrms from god knows where.

a lots of games like that

saw one game where 1 guy was just sitting way back chaining lrms so the person getting hit has their hud messed up constantly. its sort of a cheap tactic, pissed a lot of people off in mw4, but it works.

sent badskut a request.

I think LRM spamming is a completely legitimate tactic, I just hate doing it. It's boring and doesn't earn you a lot of points. Every once in a awhile you get a component destruction or the odd lucky kill from it, but that's about it. I don't know why people complain about it. I can see maybe it being a pain for Atlases because they are slow and cannot break locks super well, but in quicker mechs it's easy enough to find cover or chase off the light mech spotting you.

Ok so I think I built my best mech yet. Cat K2 with XL Engine, almost full armor, AMS, 4 Medium Pulse Lasers, and an LBX-10. Does work up close.

You can leg mechs, you just have to hit both legs and take them out. 1 will hobble it, but 2 is a kill. kfresh what's your name in game?

GaussCats are the new bane of my existence. I used to see them every once in awhile in the early beta, now there is at least one a game. I even built one just to see how easy it is to use. They are so OP it's hilarious. Even while using them I felt dirty.

i sent you both friends requests did you get them?

just tried for a few seconds to pilot a jenner, all i could say was oh god why is everything inverted.



also where the hell on this game do you go to change the weapon groupings... everything is set for alpha strikes.. it can't be the mech lab because it doesn't let me touch these dumb things.

right control + arrow keys

backspace to change the group's fire mode

the throttle is completely backwards, even when i use the inverted setups it doesn't change it... basically everything is backwards and it wont let me change it.

also invert throttle doesn't do anything, instead the mech just sits there.

well if i was using wsad then yes, but i'm using a joy stick and back makes me go forward on the throttle stick and front makes me go backwards, and there is no way to reverse that.
