I got my C-bills ready, green tea and microwavable noodle bowls stocked up! I will be attending Spiderfest and take to the skies with 8 JJ's

Tomorrow I will be upgrading my PC to finally have decent frame rates so that I can enjoy taking to the skies in all the glory!

Will I be eaten by Ravens? YES
Will I die to Commandos? YES
Will I die from streaks on any mech? YES
Will I die to LRMS hitting me mid air? YES
Will flashes of red, green and blue vaporize in me in the sky? YES
Will I glitch on terrain and buildings when trying to hop over them? YES
Will I most likely be inferior to every other mech in the game? YES

But you know what, I don't care! I just want to fly, troll and have a good time!

SPIDERFEST 2013

Because we were all scared of spiders... until now!

I liked Thomas' suggestion that the devs simply go in and spend 30 minutes to change it so a lighter mech, that's going in underweight, or has lost limbs/ammo will have MUCH better jumpjets, because it's...well, lighter than the load they're supposed to carry.

They should really do that.

I'll be there, assuming my HBK-4P and the shipment of small pulse lasers arrives on time.

Wish I could make the jumpjets shoot out rainbows instead of torches.

With the coming of Spiderfest I feel there is only one way to deal with it.

They should really do that.

That would really give the Spider an additional boost, especially the 5V. The more you shoot the thing, the more arms it loses, the better it gets at jump jetting.

As for Spiderfest 2013, I think it very well may be the largest usage of mechs. The Spider is just such an oddity in terms of hardpoints and stuff that people no doubt are wondering if it will be a DoA mech or not. Its so cheap anyways, why not try one out?

You see what's gonna happen to that Commando if he gets in the way of a Spider? It ain't pretty!

Hopefully they sufficienty buff machine guns next patch. If so, that Spider variant and the 4 ballistic Cicada might get used a bit more often.

But from what I've seen of dev comments, they'll only get "better" (however much that will be) at destroying internals, but they aren't even looking at increasing damage, which is a damned shame. They don't even have the same ratio with the small laser as they had in the TT. The machine gun didn't even get translated into MWO properly. 80 damage per ton of ammo compared to 200... Its all sorts of messed up.

Machine gun buff isn't coming until at least January 29th.

Whenever a new light mech is put ingame i will take a break from the game until the "newness" dies out.
Half of every team being light mechs right now is a PITA!

Let's keep notes of spider activity.

The Spider is going to be my first foray into the world of light piloting...


And probably your last since the spiders hard points are going to suck, and JJ are messed up, and ECM rules the field now.

In canon, ACs have a minimum range, and you suffer a lot of other effects from heat than risking a shutdown.


As do Gauss Rifles but, alas, that hasn't meant anything here so far. Anything that had to do with balancing has been tossed to the winds so far.
