Huh. That only happens to me about 20% of the time, according to my stats. The rest of the time, it's

3. Win.

Maybe you're doing it wrong?

I have had a few 12-0 wins in a row and then followed them up with even more 0-12 losses in a row. I could say its the teams fault... so I will.

5 easy steps to insure less rage when playing solo.

1. Be a good mech builder. Less trolly the better.
2. Have your mouse settings setup for accuracy not speed.
3. Hit Launch
4. Pretend that you have 11 A.I. on your side and 12 A.I. as your enemies.
5. Have fun

This is what he does when he plays with his unit as well. Practice makes perfect I guess.

Dude, I spent the morning yolo'ing into piles o red team mechs this morning in a trial king crab and then watching my teammates.

More than once, I still ended up with most damage for my team (and the trial king crab is all kinds of suck). A few times I watched guys who quite simply cannot move and shoot at the same time, and cannot, absolutely positively cannot, identify which direction incoming fire is hitting them from.

I also saw:
-A catapult launching LRM's at targets 1500+ meters away
-A mauler that looked like it had Parkinson's
-A king crab with dual AC20's but I'm guessing only a single ton of ammo as he was hiding back in our drop zone with only 7 shots
-A timberwolf that overrode heat shutdown and then popped itself trying (and failing) to shoot a raven
-An arctic cheetah that legged itself by repeatedly trying to get on top of a tall building in frozen city
-Another arctic cheetah that must have thought it was a turret as it stopped moving each time it wanted to shoot at something
-A black knight laservomit mech that would full alpha every time, miss, and then shutdown while its target pounded the snot out of it

So while you might suck, you don't suck as much as <insert your mom joke here> like a bunch of other MWO pilots do

Let's look at the alternatives to losing:


1. Log in to MWO
2. Join a group of a few fellow mechwarriors
3. Lose, because you were matched against a 12-man group


ok that didn't work out so good. Maybe there's a better option. Let's explore.

1. Log in to MWO
2. Click Faction Play
3. Lose, because it will take you an hour to play a match, and you'll likely die of boredom by that point


guess it's a Lose-Lose-Lose situation
