You know, I think that some people just cannot deal with losing. I /sarcasm on suggest that we offer a 10% armor and weapons damage buff to anyone willing to just click a button saying, "This game is too hard and I need it to be easier." /sarcasm off
Seriously, there are some balance issues, but everything is elevated to a Captain Kirk level drama fit on the forums (Thus my subject selection). Are SRM cats tough if you let them sneak up without ECM and kill you? Well, yeah, but why did you let a 65 ton mech sneak up on you?
Are LRMS devastating if someone gets a TAG lock on you? Do they rip you apart if you are standing on a high point or in the open? Well, yeah, but why are you not moving and using cover or being wise?
Is ECM a nightmare to deal with and does it seem overpowered? Well, yeah, if you are not willing to move as units and share information and planning. But, why not share, you do not have to be on some chat client listening to at least stick with the center mass of your team. *
Are Ravens the best lights for 75% or better of the user base? Well, yeah, they are the big momma of the class, they were introduced in game time just two years ago compared to the Commando from 2463. All lights are never going to be equal without being dumb. That is where PGI is going to have to break down and create some sort of Battle Value system for drops.
Seriously, the guides section has a LOT of GREAT info. Go read it.
Do you know which ammo slots are used first? Why not? You are only hurting your chances in game. Do you know how to set your TAG to autofire? See above. Want to alter your Field of View? Same. Want to understand ways to make SRMcats a joke? Counter Leaping Snipers? Deal with ECM? There are a million smart posts, go read them.
Never give up an advantage to the min/maxers, learn from them, they cannot help but brag about the effectiveness of their methods.
* ECM is a bear, and I get all the arguments but I think that the eventual balance is going to have to be some sort of options on game play (Battle Value, Weight, ECM) for the users. I don't see PGI backing down at this point without insane levels of user rage.
TL;DR GO READ THE GUIDES SECTION
