OMFG... I love this thread... its so full of founders complaining about too high repair/rearm costs....
It would be even better if you guys were the ones preaching to non-founders that they would have to equip lowtech onto their mechs to be able to play economically...
Now that you guys are no longer getting the founders bonus (unless you opt to start the clock ticking) you are getting a dose of your own medicine.... just hilarious.
P. S. I havent started my founders time yet and have not lost CBills ingame yet, even tough Im mostly running an LRM boat ... I just dont spam like mad any more and stay well away from FF and Artemis (Although I do confess that I installed 1,4 HS and Endosteel which I might be removing soon as I have too much Ammo for my needs). Im not too happy with the CBill gain ca. 20K at a bad loss, but It is pretty balanced considering that im in a Heavy Mech with Ammunition rearming needs.
I'm not actually complaining...
I have a phract-4x Guassphract I got cored a game ago and made 65k my repair cost was 74k.
but then I understand that i took a heavy mech loaded with some of the finest killing equipment into the match. then lost.
but the 3 guys i had a very easy time killing probably hate my phract a lot.
It's ok that i lost C-bills on that match. I took out a very expensive mech. I played the RISK/REWARD game and lost.
I think that's working as intended. I don't think that any player should be able to take out these massively expensive min/maxed custom builds out onto the field then expect not to pay for it in some way.
but this game is in BETA.
I do think that when we get the Inner Sphere conquest map in the game players will finally get a better sense of when they maybe should and shouldn't take out their best toys. I probably wont take out my gauss phract when i'm fighting for some periphery world with some minor passive bonus to House cred. I will probably take an Arty Catapult or my gauss phract when it's a capital world prize on the line.
Hoping that one day people will figure out that a balanced setup is much better to pilot then these min/maxed FPS builds we're getting today.
