so either you become a medium laser boat, gear up on close range balistics or you'll find yourself a sitting duck whilst laser and ac10 etc dance around you whilst your long range lasers missles etc can do nothing in the midst of been shaken to bits and not being able to redlight anything. ecm is encourageing CQ battles more than ever and it's going to kill the diversity of mechs and tactics we see on the battle field. The biggest shame ever.
it may be a whingers post but seriously are we going to see mech warrior making lrms redundant and ppcs a joke? the icons that made the madcat and awesome the famed mechs they are... until today. COME ON! mechwarrior is unique for it's radar based gameplay, i'd never engauge a mech without seeing what it is or how many we're coming my way, that's how you'd be ambushed and ganged up on like heading into suicide lane. it was bad enough before with redlight pings 2o times a second but now, many chassis varients are becoming unplayable thanks to ecm.
so i'll keep playing with a spare moment or two, but the commando raven atlas stomping parties are going to get dull VERY quickly.
