Oh, gee, like you people haven't been doing that for the past half of a year in response to every single attempt by the player base to address the problem of LRMs - and let's also assume that I haven't already called you people out on that bilious blather a dozen times before.

In short: "quack quack quack quack quack quack"

Pardon me Master Maniac. You have been insulting players left and right. Please stop.

Those who get stressed out or angry from being destroyed in the game are looking at this wrongly.
This is not your job where you run back and forth trying to do everything all at once. It's a place to have fun.

How so, exactly? My position is that LRMs are low-to-no-skill weapons, and my beef is with players who assault everyone who criticizes the *weapon* by throwing L2P insults at them. I'm not in the wrong, here. Don't even try that tack.

Telling you that "you're doing it poorly" isn't an insult. They're doing it differently, and it's working for them. They're pointing out that you're not. There's no malice...it just is. That's kinda the basis for anecdotal experience.

Conversely, as an LRM boater, I find it annoying when a light spams the R key and just cycles through all the mechs he/she sees really fast then runs away. That doesn't seem to help me either because the spotting doesn't take effect. Has anyone else seen this happen?


Light pilots spam R when they run into multiple targets. It's an imperfect way of communicating without voice chat. Spamming R means, "many targets here". (I normally hit R for each mech that I see. 5 mechs = hit R 5 times. Teammates that are paying attention can count the beeps.) Of course, after doing that, I settle on a single target to help with LRM locks. Having said that, those locks won't stay for long; I'm usually running away at that point, since it's a bad idea to stick around when outnumbered.

And telling you that the weapons you happen to like to use are flawed *is?*

Let me just mock a staw man and insult your inteligence

1) if you are deliberately locking onto someone - you are using the R button and working to help your team - no?

2) Nice work - mocking a straw man (because at what point did I bring up LRM in any way shape or form?) always proves your point.


WONDERFUL paint you are covering yourself in there buddy. :angry:

Translation: I lack the competence to figure out how to use it - or just don't like it - therefore it MUST suck - and you suck for even considering using it.

You are working so hard at making everyone around you look bad - you are only making yourself look bad - buddy.

What do you want me to do? Lock onto a target and then be pounded by ac20's till I'm dead so you can get one volley off while I die so you can maybe do damage to one target? Not me bro, I'm letting you know where the enemy is so that you're prepared. I'll lock onto a target when its not suicidal thank you.

Unintentional - was trying to scroll down -the spacing on this PC is bananasapplespongy crap :rolleyes:
(People sometimes get "liked" or, like you, "quoted" by me unintentionally :ph34r:)
Sadly - it did not pop up the quote until after I had hit save. :huh:


In other news - to all of you who do make active use of the targeting system? - Thank you.
Short held locks for LRM boats may be frustrating - but for everyone else (and usually even for the LRM) it is extremely helpful to know that an enemy is there - especially if the lock shows what kind of mech it is. B)

I was going to use the Net Troll card... but then you ended your low level trolling with this witlessicism so you must have drawn this instead.

The fact that he's ending up... consistently from the ferocity of his trollwhining... as a smouldering pile of ash in the bottom of a LRM crater is an indicator of projection.

I wonder if this tank commander is screaming "It's unfair! A-10's are too powerful! Nerf them! Nerf them! Whaaaaaaaaa..... "

And the A-10 says "Learn to war, noob."

Bananasapplespongy.... BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!! I likea da funneh.

And secondly... yes. To those who believe in teamwork and good play, thank you for hitting R. Your efforts do not go unappreciated. Now, for LRM mechs in action in all it's low skill glory. Maniacal laughter at no extra charge.
