I played quite a few games last night;  I see no evidence that brawling is coming back at all.

Indeed, Guass, AC, Large Lasers (pulse too) and PPCs were still very much the flavor.

Are we saying that Clan mechs will change this ?  I don't see it.

Ahhhhhhh, I see.

Fundamental misunderstand here then !  You chaps are playing on Test and it's great and I'm just waiting for that ?

Cool beans.  I shall reserve judgement, like Schild with Hearthstone.

I've had a match and for some reason It won't reply to you falc.

But this is, thus far, entirely as expected.  Clan mechs dominated the one match I was able to get into and a lot of distance shooting and missiles.

Um.

I will TRY to get more of a sample size than ONE MATCH, but it's all kinds of fucked tonight.

Second match.  Tunnel hiding clusterfuck of the highest order.

Ironically, someone screaming that the new mechs are 'bugged' because, er, he died in a Clan mech.

wtf.

Don't worry. Everything is broken. Server overload (  why so serious? ) so no one can enter and if you can enter you can't start a match. Even the website is down.

EDIT: Unless you are Ironwood. Ironwood can play.

Yeah, but it's like 10-20 minutes of frustration between each match and then it's getting reamed without lube by a kit fox.

Fuck this.

Going to bed.

Yea, figured I'd check this out and see what the deal is, but it's just frustration so far.

Start it up, and it's in windowed mode, and keeps jumping back in to windowed mode whenever I fullscreen it.  Asks me if I want to do the tutorial, so I say sure.  It tells me how to move my torso, but it seems a bit slow to me, so I head to the options menu to change the mouse sensitivity.  Can't do that, it starts at the maximum value (goddammit, this really drives me nuts when devs do this).  I exit the options menu, and it crashes to desktop.  And now I can't log back in.  GG, I guess.

Ok patched up, got a couple of games in. Wish I'd frapsed them actually.

Firstly I noticed the lottie window that pops up showing what percentage of mechs are in the queue and saying what class I should load if I want to get a fast game. That's a nice feature! Props. So following the suggestion I dropped in my raven and ran around terra therma. Won the game, did 350 damage. My tgeam all seemed to have a clue and stuck together as a bunch and basically focus fired the enemies. Good play from them, but the Clanners scored top damage on both teams (700 and 600 on my team)

So next game, it suggested medium, so I selected a Shadowhawk and went in. And it was searching when I noticed my mech had no engine. It was seriously going to drop me in a match in a mech with no engine. LOL ffs.

Anyway, problem fixed and into the breach. This game I did 250 odd, but in a 12-8 game all the surviving mechs were clanners. And from what I could see ot was a snipefest. And yeah, Kitfoxes.

You probably still can buy one of the Clan Packages. Otherwise you have to wait till they can screw you for MC or you can buy one for 100 hours worth of Cbills.

Not really getting this.

Some things are better, there's a lot more brawling, but it's a LRM fest for the most part and there's still a lot of long range gankage if you get out of cover.

The Clan mechs are.... Clan Mechs.  If you're up against one on your todd, you're fucking toast and you may as well just jerk off while they ream you.

I'm having some real problems with crashing, but I suspect that's because I can't resist alt-tabbing during wait times.

Mech lab is STILL cancer.  Honestly, what the almighty fuck.  I like the new Gun Proficiencies until I found out that they're cheap for XP, but they also cost A FUCKLOAD of credits, so it's a gold sink for the hardcore, which means I'm probably fucked.

The verdict :  It's better, but it's not Diablo 3 Patch.

 Ohhhhh, I see.

I think the biggest difference with the "Old Days" is that there were only 8 'mechs per side back then, so everyone tended to survive a little longer, and that PPC was in such an unusable state that the only long range weapon was the Gauss, which used to have people ragequit a lot anyway but made their 'mechs more fragile. The game will always have 'mechs able to take you out from very long range, and I guess that's fine, but compared to two years ago we all die quicker because there's simply 33% more firepower than in the beta days. Which results in a lot more "WTF?" deaths. Funny because back then there was no ghost heat so things like the 6LL Stalkers were common, and yet everyone adapted to that. But 12 'mechs? Too many angles to cover.

As far as I can see, the Clan survivability is enormously high.

That makes absolutely no fucking difference if you're still stuck in an IS mech.  You're still gonna get cored when you pop yer head up.

 why so serious?
