yeah but if i only have one double heat sink and it gets taken out all of a sudden i can't use my torso laser at all.



that is what happened the one match lost all my heat sinks because they were in my shoulders and was unable to use my large laser in my center torso.

The 9A I'm using is hard to get used to, I liked my yen lo a lot better =/
Zombie 9A with 3 SRM6, 2 Medium Lasers and a big *** engine is really effective, but it's not a very fun mech to use. 9AL and Yen Lo are my favorite Centies.

You don't only have 1 heat sink, you still have all the heat sinks internally on your engine lol

I'm obviously not trolling because I've only played this game once.

He crit hit it. I've had things destroyed because of the half-*** crit system. It doesn't work right half the time, but you can still have weapons destroyed, just like you can have a gauss die, but your arm is still intact.

So, I upgraded to the STD 255 engine last night in my HBK-4SP as well as the endo armor. I realize now that the mech builder site isn't accurate; my overall damage is lower than expected and my cooling efficiency is lower than expected as well. I feel a bit disappointed, I was all excited to get the most out of the HBK I could at the numbers I thought I was going to reach.

Yea, but no more lag shield. Prepare to take a lot more damage a lot quicker.

Yea I'm used to it, I just don't suck at this game.

I'd dare to say that 95% of all balance issues in games is the person pushing the keys.

Hahahaha PEBKAC.

I hadn't used my lights in a while, switched back to my ecm raven the other night and couldn't believe the amount of damage I took in the first 30 seconds of an engagement. Used to be able to run circles around heavies and assaults, kill them and come out at over 75% health, without lag shield I get ripped to shreds trying the same thing lol.

The key to playing lights has never been confrontation. It is fun to run circles around a guy, and you can do that if you are simply a better pilot than he is, but any type of focus fire or a couple clean hits from a heavy/assault is going to melt a light.

The best way to play a light is scout/troll until the other heavy and assaults start engaging, then go in from behind when you're not going to be noticed nearly as much.

Yea, I was just so used to cheesing it up with the lag shield. I never really realized how much it protected me before though. Oh well, I'm working on mediums right now, so it's nice to be able to actually shoot the little guys and have the hit count.

But it obviously takes up room for armor and other weapons, correct?

yes, they take up 1 slot, and weight 1 ton. double heat sinks take up 3 slots, weigh 1 ton, but are 40% more effective. the engine also comes with its own heatsinks built in.

sometimes it comes down to the tradeoffs between things. might feel that dropping 1 thing for more of something else suits your needs better.

in short, i like to keep my heat effeciency as close to 1.2 or higher if possible. depends on your play style. i tend to be up close so being able to keep firing comes in handy. my Yen-Lo for example sits at 1.14 which isnt too bad but theres been a few times when ive taken extra damage when i know i just needed one more shot from the ac20 to finish something off, but couldnt risk overheating and had to wait before shooting again.

anyone on?
