Saw people naysaying how powerful/foolish this build would be to run. Anyone actually try it now that the hero mech is out?

Not saying this is a huge factor in determining if I'm gonna buy it or not, but it would be a nice fun factor if it works well :)

Seriously, even though I was the one who started a big thread discussing this issue, I hadn't and wouldn't really try this crazy setup, LOL! :) It'll strip the mech down to almost bare. I am having fun with a triple LBX + laser setup though, that's more fun. :)

To even remotely be feasible you need to drop to a 150XL engine, and Endo steel. Even then, I found I could mount about 5 tons of ammo between the 3. Maybe more if I stripped it naked.

so, a 32 kph, nearly naked mech that runs outta ammo in about 2 minutes and can't hit a scout if it's life depends on it (and without knockdown, it does!)

Yes. SOOOOOOO OP. Wrecked all the game balance, right there!

so it can probably dual gauss better than the cat? suprisingly never seen a gauss build on a cataphract. only Ac5/2 laser builds

I run dual Gauss on my 4X. Downside being it is slow. But yeah, be relatively easy to run 2 Gauss on Ilya.

lol Shrapnel flying everywhere! I'll definately keep that in mind when I do buy it. If a shotgun mech is wrong I don't know what right is.

Also: was hoping for a response from someone who actually tried it. Wouldn't 2 alphas core pretty much anything if you hit them in the center torso twice?
