This guide as a whole literally goes over nearly everything I've learned in MWO, except in text form. It's absolutely fantastic. It also doesn't surprise me because I took up pages 41&42 explaining things I know! I was like, "where have I read this before?"

It also seems to work in sort of chronological order of a player starting as a beginner (the first sections are great for new players), and then going into intermediate (middle sections) and the later sections are more advanced things.


STHAP, you are obviously no natural light pilot.

I added a short how-to jump narc video to the guide to go with one of the builds. Take it easy on me as I am just a fledgling video producer ;).

I also added a short video describing jump sniping in a Quickdraw-5k.

update: I added a short section on Clan Tech(slide 23) being as though the big moment is about a month away. Everything is subject to change of course :P as final details come out.

Very possible ;).

I threw something together. Let me know if it is what you had in mind. Since it has a few mistakes in it I will probably redo it eventually.

Wow Kin3ticX! Thank you for taking the time to write this. I feel far more knowledgeable about the game, mech’s, and play styles. This was an amazingly helpful guide.

Thank you again, and hoping to see you on the battle field!

Wow. This is very impressive. I'm going to be showing this to everyone who I convince to play. I fear it may be somewhat intimidating for completely new players (especially the section explaining the mechlab workflow) and the focus on metagame stuff worries me somewhat. I don't want people to think that meta builds are the only options in average casual play.

Thanks for the feedback but there is not much I can do about your concerns. I can straight up remove the mechlab flowchart slide if you want. The focus on the metagame must stay because I am not hiding anything from anyone, not even completely new players. I have many brawler builds listed and now that SRMs are back I have some slight rewording to do. I do go over bracket builds briefly and there is a list of generalist builds in the reference section near the end but I do not particularly recommend them. I just think players should be aware of the traditional generalist build concepts but should not expect it to counter the metagame.

BTW, I just threw in a Clan weapons dropoff chart. Its hot off the press.....

Thanks

I just found a bunch of grammar typos because every time I go in and rewrite something I forget to check it and actually add glaring typos back in.

Also, with the coming changes to weapon balance on 8/8 I am going to need some time to figure out how it effects the game and the wording in this guide.
