Edit: look on youtube for MWO LRM boats. You will see the awesome in action. The most interesting thing is; I agree - it is not the best LRM platform, but using a bad platform the team has no trouble killing everything with LRMs, further proof that before ECM the LRM/SSRM weapons was broken and OP.
I'll have to find it. I think what I'll see is a coordinated team, working together to spot for an LRM platform, and that the LRM platform being utilized properly has a good affect. Plus, we'll see the team that gets destroyed reacting in an uncoordinated, random fashion, not working together to properly address their situation.
Having been on both the giving and receiving end of LRM death, I feel like I have some authority in speaking on that.
Plus, is the one video you're referring to taken from the 24 hour period immediately after Artemis? I wouldn't count that time period as proof that LRMs CURRENTLY are OP.
Again thanks for the unintended humor and off topic posts.
Whatever, I'm just responding to what your typing... If you think my responses are funny, well... Happy to entertain.
Once again, to get back on the topic of streaks hitting 100% and what makes them broke, Lets simplify this down to a level even you can understand..
Does 2 points of damage cause the same shake as 20 points of damage today? yes
According to you, apparently yes.
According to game balance, no.
See, I don't see that.
What I see is a missle hit, causes cockpit shake. I see a guass hit cause cockpit shake.
With guass typically you only get one or MAYBE two hits at a time, a nice comfortable delay in reload, then maybe some more hits, if you're slow...
Now with missles, since they're streamed to you, you get, then you get hit, then you get, then you get hit, then you get hit, ad nauseum. Getting shook for each hit.
So the shake affect with missles can be continuous because you can be continuously hit with missles, where as with guass... No, not so much.
So yes, over all, as long as you're being hit with missles, you will end up with more cockpit shake than a guass. Gauss, it's one and done (or maybe two), but with missles? You can have upwards of 6 racks carried on a streakapult, so that's a series of 1 hit -shake-, 2 hit -shake-, 3 hit -shake-, 4 hit -shake-, 5 hit -shake-, 6 hit -shake-, reload delay and start over again. With LRM's, crimany... It can be upwards of 60 missles streaming towards you.
Over all affect, yeah lots more cockpit shake.
Again, having been at the giving and receiving end of that, I say it's an immersive factor that requires you and your team respond appropriately to the situation.
According to physics, no.
You're wrong on this. I've explained it endlessly enough for you, but apparently you're a product of the United States Public Education system and lack enough basic understanding of phsyics to appreciate what's going on. Your ignorance doesn't make what is happening incorrect, it just means you really don't know what's going on.
Most Important: According to the development team: No.
The development team has said they will be restructuring cabin shake so that it is relative to the damage done in some kind of relationship to the Mech weight. I can not weight for its implementation.
Many's the time we've seen bad 'knee jerk' reactions out of PGI when it comes to the players who find that their preferred method of play has become a little less easy than it used to be. I suspect we're seeing it again, IF, they actually change cockpit shake.
I have never looked forward to the lack of logic, lack of rational thinking, or lack of understanding of physics displayed in your straw-man arguments of your posts, but the unintended humor is great. Hope that clears up exactly what I look forward to and what I do not in your posts. As a recap, the unintended humor, good, Everything else bad.
Whatever, your lack of reading comprehension means that apparently you can read a ceral box ingredient list and find humor. Good for you.
As it stand, just because you call an argument illogical, doesn't mean it is.
It just means you're either arrogantly ignorant, or stubbornly dense to the content of the argument.
Regardless, continue reading and responding as you like and I'll do the same...
