And guess what, if all weapons didn't fire on the exact same spot you might actually need "skill" to snipe. As it is, it's the lowest skill to highest reward in the game at the moment.
The amount of people who don't know what Lurmageddon is, is too damn high.
This. LRMs are potent, but good ECM and AMS coverage and decent usage of terrain makes them all but useless without a LOT of team support (and that is countered easily enough by team coordination on the other side). LRMs will always be the go-to noob weapon, because they don't require aiming, but at higher skill levels they are much less potent - you rarely see LRMs in twelve-man games, and they're mostly a suppressive fire weapon, not a primary damage dealer.
And oh, god, the true LRMageddon... When Atlases ran away from Commandos with LRM-5s... THAT was LRMageddon. The current LRMs are about right. They're potent, and they can ruin your day if the enemy team is really smart with them, or you do something stupid, but they're easy enough to avoid at higher skill levels.
While I agree with the sentiment, I strongly disagree with the tone. Please try to keep the offensive or insulting comments to a minimum. I want this thread to stay civil and constructive.
