I am going to bet people are going to throw heatsinks and nice stuff in the legs and I will be sure to target them effectivly. However I will know where their equiptment is if I'm scouting. If they have nothing in th legs I might just target arms or w/e is important.

-Ganging up on an enemy
-Headshot Snipe with Gauss at 1000 meters
-Shoot em in the back
-Disarming (shooting off an arm with weapons)
Perhaps even build upon it a little just to see how much we can draw the line (getting sillier that is)
-Attacking a lighter mech
-Using ingame equipment to defeat your foe (ECM / Radr drones, Spoofing etc)
-Being too fast...
-Making a one-trick-pony (laser/missile/ac boat)
-Using a good joystick
-Communicating with teammates
-Using teamspeak or vent
See where im getting with this?
STOP WHINING ABOUT LEGGING - I WILL LEG YOU AND ALL OF THE ABOVE!
Sorry about that...I think im overreacting...

Then you never played MW3 Whilst the rational parts of people's brain tells them that legging won't be like that in MWO, some MW3 veterans appear to have acquired an irrational fear that legging represents a broken mechanic.

Legs are part of a mech, so if they get shot so what?

Some threads apparently however you have to SHOOT IN THE HEAD,
DIE! BANG! DIE! BANG! BANG!.

In my ideal game, damaging a leg would reduce movement speed. If you destroy the leg, the mech should topple to the ground, but not blow up. Instead, you'd have to give it a kill shot.

Exactly. I don't think the real issue is Legging. The issue is can I be 1 shot/knocked out in 1 volley/head shot/instead dead with ease? In MW3 legging was just too easy and it was frustrating being knocked out of a fight so quick, there was no enjoyment. I played a lot of MM:LL, and would I leg a mech? Absolutely. Does that mean it's all I did? No way. I look to see what is damaged the most and how I can end a fight quickly. If I target a mech and notice its leg is almost gone, you better believe if the range, terrain, and movements of our mechs make that a decent shot, I am absolutely going to take it 100% of the time. This goes for any mech part. If I come around a corner and I happen to be looking at your rear torso, and it's already damaged, guess what? I look for clean, efficent kills. I am not going to waste ammo or heat pounding on fully armored parts of your mech in the name of 'honor'.
However, if 1 shot to the leg ended a fight everytime it would quickly become annoying and game breaking, and thats what happened in MW3 and why it's still shunned. If legs had some more armor and it wasn't so easy to shoot them off, or maybe if a mech only fell when both legs were damaged, it wouldnt be shunned at all.

An slow or immobilized 'mech can still hit back and kill you. If blowing off a leg detroyed the 'mech, that would be a flaw in the game design.

* Use cover better to minimize number of opportunities people have to shoot your legs.
* Armor up the legs if you have the option; if you choose to have tin foil legs, you only have yourself to blame when they're shot out from under you.
* Devs can change how damage is done to the legs; if the legs suddenly suffer no damage that gives an advantage to the attacker, people will stop shooting there.

Not that hard... Get better at protecting valuable assets....
I always enjoyed taking on a KV5 in WOT unless it had a good tanker that knew how to protect the RTD2. Most of them just hung it out there with little to no thought......
Same thing with the LOWE, lower glacius on most tanks is a soft spot and good tankers defend them... Bad tankers complained because it was not heavily armored enough.....

I should add that Living Legends isn't a "title", it's a mod based off of Crysis Warhead. Viewing it as its own game is as stupid as the people that talked about Dota as if it were its own game. They're mods and very limited in features when compared to real games. I don't have Living Legends either though and don't want to drop 20$ for Crysis Warhead just to play a mod. As soon as August comes and MWO and GW 2 hits I'll never touch it again so why bother? I'm not that desperate for entertainment and I might get early beta access on MWO anyway. They're still sending out keys, you never know.
