I still have to find some time to play again. Between work, home, commute, Civil Air Patrol, Trivia contest coming up, and being sick as hell, I'm beat.

So far, and I'm way early into learning this all, I've run the default Mechs, and picked up a Hunchback. Thinking I might pick up the PPC Catapult next, drop the MG's, and play around with the energy weapons setup a touch.

New patch notes are interesting, new hero mech is useless, want to see what changes they made concerning artemis, and last, but not least, they said they fixed the visual glitch for targetting. Finally.

Also, huge ruckus about them adding consumable items. AKA turning the game into pay 2 win. No thanks PGI, keep that **** out of our game. I really like the balance it has right now, with the only things you can buy in game with money you can buy with in game currency. No one is at a distinct advantage because they spend real money on this.

That's how it should be. Those who want to be better and have better stuff should play their way into it, not buy their way into it. Purchased stuff is fine for skins/paint, or little kitsch accessories, or the little crap that's amusing but not game functional.

Indeed. Post up on the feedback thread in their forums, it's already 30 pages long and this stuff was only announced 24 hours ago lol

Feedback means nothing until the features have been implemented. I don't like the consumables thing, but we wont know how game breaking or not it is until it's in. Until then, why would the devs listen to us when we know next to nothing about it?

Because of theorycraft. Think about what the changes will do as they describe them. We'll use the coolant module as an example. C-bills will buy you either tier 1, tier 2 or both, for a module slot each. MC's will get you tier 3 for 1 module slot. Tier 1 is 15%, tier 2 is 20%, tier 3 is 35%. You can cool off for a max of 35% heat TOTAL. This means that if you were to play with c-bills only, you could have the same total amount of cooling, BUT at the cost of one less module slot to play with. See the problem yet?

Edit: Besides, they asked for it. From what I've skimmed a lot of people are against it, if not totally, then with significant changes.

i was under the impression they werent going to do things like that. i want to say they even stated it too. its seriously not cool. takes casual/fun play completely out of the game once money for better items gets involved. i like how the hero mechs and cockpit items are, they get a bonus but arent "better" than anything else, or just for decoration.

or maybe im thinking of ccp and dust514.

weapons seem to make new sounds

No I see the problem, but the devs had to know the **** storm it would cause. The problem is that everyone hates everything new in this game, so they aren't gonna listen to *****ing until they get some actual real world data. For the record, I'm against the MC bought consumables (unless they are exactly the same as cbill consumables) and I'm against any kind of coolant flush in general. They had been talking about UAV and Arty consumables for awhile (and I believe it's going to be a pilot module you have to unlock before you can even use them) but they said awhile ago that they weren't going to implement coolant flush. At least the other consumables help the team in some way. Flush is just for baddies who can't manage heat.

If they want to put in a button that just makes a whooshing sound and nothing else, I'd be all for it.

No, you are absolutely correct, they said they wouldn't do it. Guess their pockets were feeling light after the $5 mil we dropped on them for founders. Doesn't even take into account any new money they gained after they closed off founders.

Only new sound I've noticed is the regular laser recharge sound. It's quite annoying, liked the old sound better.

Because cicada's aren't that commonly used. Raven hero? lololol 3L is the hero mech, the other variants are pretty terribad enough, don't need a bad hero mech. Hunchie could use a hero, but it already has a lot of variants. I would rather see a hero stalker or atlas.

These are all module slot consumables, so you have to be able to unlock them first. I think someone got greedy and overruled the devs on this decision. There is nothing good that can come of this change. It's a small step in the wrong direction, and soon they'll be saying hey, why not have gold ammo, since people already pay for consumables? Create enough of an outcry on the forums and the devs will have no choice, but to reverse their current direction. It would be a shame for them to mess up what is shaping up to be a pretty good f2p.

Edit: Training grounds needs some tweaks, namely you should have unlimited ammo, or at least when you run out it should replenish so you can continue testing. Targets should be more plentiful IMO, my first run through I found only 5 before I got tired of walking around in an assault looking for **** to shoot.

training ground is cool at least, you can take the time to shoot something to see where hitboxes are....and how much you can push an overheat lol.....with 4x LL's...1 1/2 times, that other half isnt a fun time.

it'd be really fun if you could invite people in it....and just **** around and stuff.

lmao yea, it's good for that. Plus you get to walk up to mechs and check out how detailed they are. The 'phract hs box is tiny, was trying to hit it from 150m out and ended up just destroying it by killing the ct with my lasers

seems like any hits on the "windows" of the cicada or awesome register as a cockpit hit.....might be easy to take out a sniper awesome if you catch him not moving.

whoa, did not know the 4x had center mounted lasers.....i sold my 1x thinking i wouldnt want to get all the elite skills for phracts...now i do...i only need like another 1500xp to finish out the 1x...but kinda want a 4x now..for dakka dakka zombie laser boat.

i do not like the new laser reload sounds....large's are beareable..but corny. ive heard the mediums are ****....am about to try them. :S
