Cents are terrible and pretty guaranteed to not survive any battle
>>
>>127977242
Hmm, misconception.

They have great torso twist, a decent amount of hardpoints, and the ability to shield arm on that left side. It's a great mech to learn how to spread damage in, and can work with a variety of loadouts from close to long range and everything in between.

no it's not the most meta thing, but it's a good training, or all around mech.
>>
>>127977367
No it's pretty accurate. Yeah you can use it to learn to use the left arm as a blocker but you'll want to ditch that thing as soon as possible. No matter what you plan to run in it there are other IS mechs that can do it better. Expect possibly pure brawler on the AH. Even that is debatable.

There's two variants with specific builds that sort of work for the Centurion and that's the YLW with AC20 2xML and AL with stuff like 3xLPL.

Every other build ranges from mediocre to absolutely terrible. That includes the ASRM18 build due to being huge, squishy and short ranged. Or maybe I should go back to the Mechwarrior Academy and contemplate upon the fundamentals of torso twisting.

My 2 cents says the best way the devs could keep this game going as a money bag for them is implement the single player campaigns with option for co-op. Like, up to 12 man co-op. Big long multi map campaigns.
And you could earn exp and c-bills for use in normal multiplayer this way too (perhaps less or more then standard play)
The revenue steam could come from "expansion packs" or whatever they wana call it. You buy new campaign packs when they come out, and say after 6 months or a year they're free to buy with cbills or plain free.
Something like that would keep plenty of people happy for years.

What do ballistics bring to the table anyways? As someone using a ballistics oriented mech, I always feel kinda cvcked when I watch the strobe shows that extend half the map and meanwhile I have to slide into brawling range to use my ballistics.
>>
>>127986856
Instant, pinpoint damage. Provided that you're using IS ones. Usually little to no heat. In TT you had alternate ammo types.

That's about it. Some ballistics can have good DPS with cooldown QWIRKS, too.
>>
>>127987103

>instant pinpoint damage

Keeping ballistic weapons trained on one spot on a moving mech is ridicilously hard.
>>
>>127987228
Depends on what robot you're playing and shooting at with what ballistic. Your mounts, velocity + velocity quirks, etc.

Robots are really slow overall, leading targets is not hard.
>>
>>127977657
>>127977769
>>127978190
I don't think any other mechs has shotgun vomit quirks like the CN9-D. It's fun for bullying lights and obliterating criticals (1dmg per pellet doesn't matter if you smash them with 50+), but you do have serious ammo problems.

Here's how the PGI branded flamer actually works.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRd48z4RU9c

They only do anything if the target hits override.
>>
>>127994802
wait as long as it is hitting nothing, the heat wont go up ?!
>>
>>127995876
no, the heat it generates (and transmits) depends on the current heat level

so the most effective way to use them is if you have a super heat neutral build, and just keep your heat at 80% the whole match.

since you only give 1/3 the heat away compared to yourself, you are relying on the fact the enemy has to be at least 3 times as hot as you...
>>
>>127994418
the kevin bot doesn't work with ui 2.0, so you'll have to make a new one.

second problem is that you make jack shit from botting that way

third problem is that you are highly likely to get reported

You do realize that getting lurmed to death that easily is basically saying "I'm tier 5 and belong there", right?

Seriously. And I'm a missile-lobber lover.

You see "incoming"?

Go to cover.

You're too slow to get there before the spread damage actually kills you?

You've made a critical mistake in going into some huge-ass open spot with zero cover and no speed.

Seriously, I can put a few 100 missiles into a target. Unless it's wounded, it won't go down, especially if it's moving.

Hunchie on the other hand was okay-ish, the 4J and 4P are minimally viable.

So what's the most satisfying light? I just did up close H&R with the trial Raven, so I switched over to the Arctic Cheetah, much nicer although it ran a little hot for my tastes.

I wanted an MG boat so I made one. Armor distribution might not be optimal and I'm not sure if BIG DICK ENGINE is the best either but it looks like it'd work for shits and giggles. I tried the armament+heatsinks in the heat sim and it did 280 damage (14DPS) in 18 seconds before it overheated. I do welcome any improvements, the only core part is the 6MGs.

No you don't understand, I fully expect this build to be combat viable. I fully expect to waltz my 58KM/H King Crab right into someones face (blasting them with LPLs as I close the gap) before smashing them to pieces with SRMs and MGs.

I'm too stupid to factor the actual mech costs into the equation, but smurfy runs my King Crab build at 14 mil C-bill and my Firestarter build at 9 mil C-bill.

So yeah, Firestarter is expensive.
It's my fault for picking a build that calls for a 295XL

I have a light sniper and a heavy LRM boat, what else should I go for?

>>128172143
mine has a 295XL and was around 9-10mil. I guess you mean expensive relative to the tonnage, then?
>>
>>128172496
Four mil difference to outfit a 100 ton mech. That's 65 tons more. It's easily the most expensive light mech in the game, which is what matters. No point in comparing an orange to a watermelon.

"...and how many new guns need to be bought?"
Mechs that have a lot of hardpoints can quickly rack up costs when outfitting new loadouts and revisions.

I made the mistake of spending too much on my shiny new dakkawoof so I don't think I can make up the difference to buy a third before the sale ends. That's a lot of potential millions lost due to badly paced spending.

Might just barely be able to make it up with my money-bonus mechs though. Marauder always performed the best for me.

>>
>>128180387
well if it helps I prefer ballistics over energy. No idea why, just always preferred the feel of sending a shell down range at the enemy. I'll obviously use whatever is best for a brawler setup though.
>>
>>128180387
Don't matter that much since you need to get all three available king crabs anyway and they're fairly close to each other. If you wan't to dual ac20 brawl then the 000 has beter quirks. If you wanna be more like an atlas and mix ac20 with surms then the 000b has more missile hardpoints. But the atlas is the premier ac20+surms assault robot anyway so I would prefer the dual ac20s on the crab. It's made for that.
>>
why is boar's head atlas shit?
>>
>>128182730
Because it can't boat SRMs like god intended for Atlas mechs.

I originally liked the idea of AC20+6MLAS, but its just too fucking hot and comes with all the usual disadvantages of being in an Atlas.
>>
>>128182730
It ain't shit as far as I know, it's fine.
AC20+mpulse is fine. Or large lasers for some more midrange are fine too on boar's head.

So I'm trying to figure up the theoretical DPS for the UAC-20 when you're firing at maximum fire rate including jams. Mainly to see if I should be using it or an LBX-AC20 on a Brawling Executioner.

Worst I've done was in my light mech, I was paranoid as fuck from running and I blasted a friendly medium mech in the CT as he came around a corner. Luckily I was using lasers so I only did about half of my small salvo of lasers before I realized he was friendly and flicked my beams off of him. Still felt like an ass even though I probably only took like 4-6 armor off his CT, if that. At least he wasn't angry about it.

>sorry wut

The Catapult has the most fucking retarded missile tubes in the game. It gets these huge VCR looking boxes added on when you add more missiles.

What makes it even more retarded is that other mechs get super compact LRM launchers that can fit dozens and dozens of LRMs into a small space, while Catapult gets retard hueg boxes.

>>
I'm having trouble wrapping my head around CW. Do you need more than 1 Mech to participate in it?
>>
>>128209285

Yes. You need four mechs. And if you are in an Innersphere faction, you can only use IS mechs, and if youa re in a clan faction you can only use clan mechs.

Also, if you arent in a premade group of at least 4+ people, you are going to get shitstomped by enemy premade teams, since they play alot of CW matches and theres no rules about team sizes and premades in CW.
>>
>>128209484
Is there a maximum tonnage to what you're allowed to bring? I only actually know how to use Assault mechs. Or am I going to have to learn how to use different mechs to be any way decent at CW.
>>
>>128209619

There's a tonnage limit that seemingly changes whenever Russ feels like it. You must bring at least X tons, but no more than Y.

It differs between clan and IS.
>>
>>128209729
So if the tonnage changes and if I'm not mistaken you can only own 4 mechs without buying an extra mechbay, I'm kinda screwed if I don't get more mechbays?
>>
>>128206597
pls respond.

>>
>>128210237
CW earns you mechbays, take week long contracts and keep cycling through factions.

Can I use trial mechs for CW?
>>
>>128212463
They obviously will be far from optimal but yes you can use trial mechs for CW.
>>
>>128094228

LRMs become less effective as your opponents get more experienced, as they rely on your opponents making errors and getting punished for them. Fewer errors = less chances to hit.

That being said, if your team can force those mistakes or you can maneuver yourself to do the same, LRMs can be modestly effective. Generally direct-fire will trump them, however.
>>
>>128100531

Nothing has that many ballistic hardpoints. King Crabs can manage 6 MG builds, though it'll make most people cry tears of blood at the waste.
>>
>>128103049

The classic one that isn't fuck-all nuts is the 6MG+2 LPL Jagermech. That at least will have enough speed to come to grips with opponents. Still, your MG bullet hell will only matter if there's exposed components, as armor will make your barrage nearly worthless.

>>128209619

Yes, you're gonna need to learn- as CW's current tonnage limit is 265. You -can- use trials to fill in for 'Mechs you don't have otherwise, though. That being said, you really should bring your A-game to CW. It's not matchmakered, strongly favors groups/unit play, and those units frequently will not fuck around and gleefully laser the shit out of you while you plod along in your assaults.

Whatever faction you're in, find out if they have a faction TeamSpeak. Use it. No exceptions. Solo PUGs in CW (or worse, an entire group of them) are target practice without co-ordination. You don't have to join a unit, just get on their VOIP of choice, listen, work with the group. Or you're basically useless.

The nice thing is some of the CW rewards include Mechbays. And they're honestly the best use of MC as well.

>>128214616
Does CW heavily favor fast mechs?
Or is assualt equally important?
>>
>>128212463
What >>128212589 said. They'll be far from optimal, and in many cases your scrub ass will be more of a detriment to your own team than anything else in them.

Either way, if you have to use them, here's what you SHOULD use:

>Clan side trials to use
Arctic Cheetah (C), Timber wolf (C), Stormcrow (C), Dire wolf (C)

If you own clan mechs, you can swap the Dire wolf out for another heavy, like the Mad Dog, Hellbringer or Ebon Jaguar.

>Clan side trials NOT to use. NEVER. EVER.
Ebon jaguar trial, executioner trial, shadowcat trial, adder trial

Ebon jag trial is an LRM boat that has no close combat capability to speak of, and scrubs suck at efficiently using LRMS. Don't fucking do it, or I will personally shoot your mech to slag if I see you. Executioner is a brawling/ corner peeking mech that lacks an effective or heat efficient build. Adder prime is kinda okay sniper, but PPCs just suck, and you're a fucking Adder. You are slow as a glacier, and get wasted the moment someone looks at you. Shadowcat prime lacks the quintessential ECM to survive and provide some form of support for your team. Also has only 2 tons of ammo for the gauss rifle, which makes your effectiveness in CW completely nonexistent.

To be cont. in next post ->

>>
>>128212463

Cont. from >>128215671
>Inner Sphere side trials to use
Raven (C), Enforcer (C), Hunchback (C), Thunderbolt (C), King Crab (C)

You can substitute the medium and assault options for more heavy mechs should you choose to do so. It's advised to have at least one ECM capable mech in your deck.


>Inner Sphere side trials you should reconsider picking
Catapult (C), Jenner (C), Atlas (C)

Catapult is an LRM/ SRM boat with too little ammo to be effective, and it's XL engine means you will get wasted REALLY quickly by anyone what knows what the crosshair is for. Jenner is a light that excels at hit-and-run skirmishing, running circles around enemies to circumvent it's fragility. CW maps do NOT offer this possibility, don't bring it unless you're suicidal. Atlas is an okay defensive mech, but it's effectiveness is limited to less within 270 meters, and it's slow. You're a great big "I'm a humongous faggot please rape my face" target for anyone, and scrubs don't know how to torso twist or position themselves for a protracted brawl. A King Crab is survivable enough and provides considerably longer range firepower with which to add to your more competent teammates.
>>
>>128215681
It's fragile, more so than the inner sphere orion before the quirkening, but thanks to clan weight saving techniques you'll be able to stock up on heavy weapons and still move at top speed for the chassis. (77kph with XL360, 83 with speed tweak)

If you can get within 270 meters without taking a lot of fire (ie before your armour turns orange) you'll be able to kill enemies in one or two volleys from your combined SRM batteries and ballistic of choice.

I personally run them with LBX20's or UAC20's, and SRM6's. Each and every variant has an alpha above 70, and at the missiles effective range you're doing just that. Alpha striking someone from behind instantly kills them.
>>
>>128215957
So glass cannon then. I'm going to buy the IIC hunchback and figured I may as well throw a second mech in, and right now I don't have any heavies or assaults.
>>
>>128179486
here again. I went ahead and got the king crab 000, but looking at two builds has be confused. There's the dual ac/20 build and quad uac/5 build (but I would use regular ac/5 because fuck that jamming chance) which would be better for brawling?
>>
>>128217212
This is purely my opinion, but I think you would get better results with the ac 5 build. You'll be able to keep constant fire on the enemy and if you're any good you'll do no less than 400 damage per game.
>>
>>128214854
Fast tanky mechs that can dish out 50-70 damage at range within 1.5 seconds.

Honestly, running mixed ACs with such a disparity in range and RoF is not really ideal. If you are going AC5s go for 4 of them. If you want some laser range, use large pulse lasers. Normal ppcs for slower mechs are not great because you will get fucked when someone gets within 90m. Also you will be painfully slow.

As an idea of the shenanigans you can get up to with a KGC, have this http://mwo.smurfy-net.de/mechlab#i=240&l=e82bd82bd34bcaaa531d5dc090b4e5ac04bce969

>>128234943
I've never been a fan of mixing ACs, but I guess it could work. A bit too cool for my memes.

Also AC20 and PPC are different ranges so you're meming yourself a bit.

I started building that, but realized two things:

Worst case scenario you lose 240 rounds of AC ammo. You already should have been engaged for a good amount of time, and the leg ammo should be more than enough for just 2 left over ACs.

Second thing is that case does NOT prevent ammo explosions, but the damage spreading. So having ammo in both torsos means you pretty much will lose either torso the moment they are open. One vulnerable torso is better than two imhotbhf

>>
>>128239287
Dual ac20 is pinpoint fuck your shit damage at sub 300m. But you gonna regret that spooky heat and the refire rate is kinda ass. Quad ac5 is easy on heat and its a long range ac20 that fires twice as fast.

Whats better will wholly fall to your preferred play style. Want to brawl? ac40 is your friend, just stagger fire them .5 seconds to avoid ghost heat. This also lets you have a better torso twist/vs damage output.

quad ac5 is more forgiving because you do not have to commit as hard as ac40. Once you get stuck in a brawl, you cant get out, but if youre blasting fuckers at 400m, you can maneuver to be not completely caught out of position, especially with the KGC favorible torso twist.

>>128239287
Quad ac/5 is very solid all around. It's not hot, has good range, and with decent bullet velocity lets you land shots more or less where you want them. It will also take a bit more tonnage than the dual 20s and unfortunately you are forced to either face someone or to twist because your refire rate is pretty low.

Dual ac/20 is much more focused and has lots more positives and negatives. You're incredibly short ranged. Heat is an issue, and ghostheat is another issue. Due to your wide set arms and slow projectiles landing both shots will be hard against any fast moving target so you will rarely shoot both at once anyway.

It will definitely scare people though, and is pretty easy to get kills if you survive past the halfway point of the match since so much damage is front loaded and you can easily finish off weakpoints.

The long refire rate means you'll have plenty of time to properly spread damage.

>>128240057
ac/20's are more my style then. My problem now is figuring out what kind of backup weapon I should have. I can run two med pulse or an srm 6 maybe.

Med lasers are a reliable, mid-range option. They'll never run out of ammo. SRM6s are a close range FUCK YOU, much like a shotgun. They'll run dry eventually, though.
>>
>>128240772
>stop asking to be spoonfed
How am I asking to be spoon fed? I did the smart thing and went to people playing the game at this exact moment with better input and more insight into load outs than a spreadsheet from september of last year.

Just ignore him. Half the posts here will undoubtedly attract the attention of bittervets.
>>
>>128240504
If you use the lasers as an afterthought, theyre not too bad, but if you decide to go alpha, that heat is gonna add up. The srms are yet another system to hog ammo. I am guessing you are running out of space so you cant have a pair of med las and 2 more dhs? What engine are you running?

>>128241880
Good. Drop a few points from your face/arms/legs to get an extra dhs in your engine. KGC are short but as wide as a fuckin barn, so being able to twist faster will benefit you greatly. Also the better max speed is nice so you can actually maneuver into position where your ac40s can do their damn job.
>>
Stop using CASE. Stop it right now.
>>
>>128243015
Not until you give me a good reason beyond "stop it"
>>
>>128243581
In MWO its a waste of space. It doesn't really offer much to the table. The DHS is more valuable than that case.
>>
>>128243581
Waste of tonnage. Provides no protection. Doesn't even save you from ammunition cook-offs either, you'll still lose that torso and everything in it. Which, for these shitty King Crab builds I'm seeing in this thread would mean the end of your ammunition completely.
It's better to just spread your ammo out between head, legs, and torsos.
On clan mechs it really doesn't matter, hell you can, and it's often done, that most of it is stored in the arms.
>>
>>128239287

In MWO, DPS is stricly inferior to frontloaded damage.

Doing 40 damage to one body part is infinitely more useful and dangerous than doing 400 damage spread across a robot.
>>
>>128240980

He's just butthurt. /gerg/ has always been the best source of robot information and protips.

In general, if you have questions, it's better and quicker to get on mumble and play some games with whatever ancient veterans are lurking there than making posts.

Even if there's no one online, just post that you want to play and someone will doubtlessly login and do an hour or two of group drops.

Should remove that CASE add a DHS to the engine. Move 2 tons of ammo to the right torso and move the DHS to the left torso. So if you lose one you still have ammo

Stop fucking walking in front of me. Stop it. I'm so fucking sick of these mongoloid shitheads walking directly in front of me and standing there fucking clueless. Blasted a Timberwolf in the back for the full duration of 3 LPLs at about 50M because he walked in between me and a Stormcrow. Wish it would have killed him honestly.

You have a ~25% chance that losing a side torso will destroy the CT with that much ammo.

He didn't get the kill, I killed the fucking Stormcrow about 30 seconds later. He basically just kept it alive longer. Had an Atlas dog me the first four-five minutes of the eight minute match too, I could not get him out from in front of me until I finally broke off from every other person on my team and he fucked off to the other side of the map.

Are any of the package deals being sold on steam worth getting? I've been having a lot of fun in the game and I think it deserves my money.
>>
>>128248923
Not even close. Only thing that has any merit to purchase is mech bays, but only barely since you can get them in CW
>>
>>128249578
Also a newfag here, how do you get mechbays from CW, I've barely looked at it, is it tied to rank?
>>
>>128249778
You need to grind loyalty points for a faction and you get it unlocked as a reward for loyalty.
>>
>>128249578
How about actually buying MC.
Anything worth getting with MC?
>>
>>128249778
It is tied to your rank in the various factions. One of the first few rankups you get in every faction grants you a free mechbay so it may be worth it to hop between them and get a bunch.

>>128248923
No. If you truly feel the need to spend money on this game, find your totem mech and buy the hero version of it. Or get some MC and spend it on some of the cooler camos and a few colors you want. I'm personally a big fan of the Buccaneer camo, but Phranken also looks really good on a few mechs (Ravens and King Crabs specifically) and the IS faction camos are also all neat looking for the most part as well.

I need mech-appropriate playlists and or albums

Why not put most of that ammo in the head and legs, areas that are less likely to be hit than the GIANT side torsos?

So what the fuck is this "missile tubes" business.
My shadowhawk supposedly has 10 in the RT, 5 in the head and 6 in the CT, but an SRM 6 still only fires 6.
So what the hell
>>
>>128257415
max numbers of missles that can be fired at once. So if you could stick an srm6 in your head, it would fire 5 missles and then the last 1 in another salvo.

I'm not sure what your question is

Tubes apply to both LRMs and SRMs. 15 tubes are generally the best, which is also the reason why the Awesome is the best mech in the game
>>
>>128257830
I figured the number at the end of a SRM or LRM just meant the damage, and thought the number of missiles fired per salvo was only determined by the tube number.
