"A Ridge too far, a Panicbutton Story"




Good Day Community,

I come to you all, in the aftermath of Mech Con 2017 with a simple request for PGI to be supported by my peers here. I talk of course of the noble cause of permanently adding a fixture into the game of what happens when "Keeping it real, goes wrong".

This fixture could take many different forms but I believe the best possible form could be simply "A Destroyed Executioner Mech with the number 12 on it added to the map Polar Highlands"

If you are confused, or don't understand the reference the following quote should allow you to get a picture of the noble event that this fixture would represent...

This dude is my hero. I didn't even watch the match and he's my hero. So much so that I am gonna bookmark this thread and bring it up every time some whiny muchkin posts a rant thread about the injustice of being in a crummy match with 1-2 people who didn't provide a sufficiently legendary performance. On this day in history, a literally world class comp team player got shot down with an embarrassing score. Guess what? **** happens. You get out of position, or you get primaried, you bring a situational build to the wrong situation, or you're just out to have some fun in a fun mech that's not the normal meta lord. He's probably none too happy about it either. But, rightly or wongly, the game mechanics tend to snowball with someone being left with a very short end of the stick. Is what it is. *raises wine glass* So here's to you, Random Executioner Guy, for keepin' it real for all us puglets in the trenches!


Because some people have asked what really "happened" here is a quote from the 228 member "one last byte"

Quote

To clarify, it was panicbutton for our team who brought it on Polar Highlands. He brought a HLL/ERML build (leveraging the high mounts for the HLL and the speed of the EXE for defending caps / rotating more quickly), but he set up one ridge farther back than he meant to, so when he went to move forward into what was supposed to be a mech-height ditch, he ended up walking straight into a shallow area that gave him no cover in full view of EON's entire team.

Thus the 12 dmg EXE meme was born out of peoples' shock or amusement at a player on one of the teams making the finals doing so little damage. Given the context it's a little more understandable but it still sucked at the time.


Please let this be something for the ages, I leave this to you all!

And the funny thing is, this will die out and nobody will care about it in a couple weeks to a month. Much like the Banshee on Frozen City.

You know how they sell the championship winner deck in Magic the Gathering? They should totally have a (C) mech kitted with the loadout of winning players and they rotate those every year, every year they have a new name and different loadout. If you want a dragon called proton you would have to buy it this year. That would encourage some diversity.

Not a bad idea, especially if they are intent on adhering to the esports angle. Probably something could be worked in with that Solaris section as well.

You should call it the Double Digits. And yes, "12 Damage" paintjob on the back so you don't have to decal it on like you do now.

I'd use that '12 DAMAGE' dekkel. But only because I'm a potato and 12 damage is pretty good for me.

I'd buy a #12Damage Decal!

Or even better, a Standing cockpit item called "the Panic Button" with the "12dmg" stamped on the top of the button!
