just played a game where one did really well. all he had fit was 2 med pulse lasers on it but he did a great job of staying behind enemies...he worked a good one over on me in my speedy 3x srm centy. im usually fast enough in it to scare lights off but he could stay behind me easily. i could stop and turn with him but then i got killed when something bigger shot me...i might get one now lol. im used to just having 2 guns from playing the yen lo so much .

so far i think i have the most fun in my yen lo, cataphract 1x with 4x LL, and the speedy hunchy 4sp.

ECM is a must unless you want to get taken down by lrms. That's pretty much the only way that they can consistently take you down at range.

I like the woodland camo scheme, just came up with this mix:

I would buy it except I'm too cheap to waste MC on stupid camo lol

I caved and bought a spider though, used my second loadout, with a bit of a tweak, dropped 1 dhs and put 2 jj's on. Might switch it back depending on how I like the feel.

Wow, can constantly chain fire and not have any heat problems. I was never even close to overheating, survived a whole match and got a kill. Liking this setup. Helped that I had at least 3 other lights with me, all running ecm, so we could swarm the **** out of their ecm lights lol. Feels slow for some reason, even though it's base speed is more than my 3L's. Can't wait to speed tweak this thing, and really see it flying. JJ's saved my leg armor so many times when I took nasty falls over some unseen cliff (played night map).

I really wish that after you bought the pattern once you could use it on anything you have. Same with color palette. I have my PC Gamer pattern and red/grey/black colors that I can use on anything but it only works for the Centy and older mechs. Anything in the game after the centy can't use the pattern. It looks cool on the hunchback and centy though.

I came up with some really cool looking woodland camo combinations for the Cataphract, but it would have cost 600+ MC to buy it.

Found out the hard way, that as I expected, the spider sucks when there isn't a horde of other lights to back it up. Also, somehow a stalker kept pace with me running full out at 130+ while I went from one end of the map to the other, zigzagging between buildings for cover.

Turn based, browser strategy game. It's basically like a tweaked version of the tabletop. It has its share of problems (as I type this, the game I'm playing froze up on me) but since it's browser based you can play it on virtually any computer. I'm playing it on my Macbook Pro right now.

so far i think i feel the spider is better suited for assault than conquest, maybe its because your more likely to have support during a fight in assault than conquest....or maybe im just bad with lights. seems that since it does so little damage to begin with combined with not being in the same place for long in conquest might be why. constantly moving/scouting vs whizzing around poking at mechs long enough to earn some dmg dealt and xp.

yea, it is really good on heat managment with 1 heatsink and 2med lasers i think mines at 1.23 or something. it feels really nimble too, like it turns on a dime even compared to other lights.

Yea, I've been playing mostly assault for that reason. In cq there's no way you survive til the end unless half the team is lights and is moving together.

Edit: You guys should get on, I'm tired of pugging and hoping my team is good lol.

I went up against a jenner and they still somehow out-lagshield me. What the **** is wrong with the jenner coding?

Play a pug whole team gets taken out they don't kill anyone, i do decent damage in my centri, when the other team comes to kill me i duck out and find a safe place to hide cutting my losses. Team *****es at me for not killing all 8 of their assualt mechs with my medium... did most damage on team anyway.

Why hide? It's not like you have to pay repair and re-arm costs anymore.

This is the exact constant glitch that caused me to quit playing in september, guess what... it still is in the game...




because there was no point in fighting 8 mechs **** it if my team is that bad they don't deserve my effort.

The only thing I could find in Known Issues that seemed somewhat similar to that was an issue with AMD/ATI cards and anti-aliasing, that's why I asked. If you haven't already, I would submit a ticket. It might be a fairly rare bug. It's one I've never had, and I've had just about all of the other common bugs.
