I haven't played since earlier this year. I'm just wondering if anyone could direct me to the restricted mechs/build list we are using, or have that not released this info.

As far as we know, all mechs will be allowed in Solaris - but they will be split up into divisions, with each variant ranked separately. If a variant overperforms, it will eventually be moved to a higher division. If it underperforms, it will eventually be moved to a lower division.

Also, I do not believe there will be fixed builds.

If there were, I would most probably not play the game mode - I like my 'mechs personalized.

No there won't be any stock mechs or mode as far as I know.

Is a MWO "quirk" some sort of tactical advantage for a mech with a particular equipment?

A quirk is a boost to the stats of weapon or armor/structure equipped on the mech. So like -10% cooldown, will rightly lower the cooldown of all weapons equipped on it by 10%. Or +10 armor, will give +10 armor to the listed section of the mech.

It's a straight numeric buff. In the in-game store you will see them under "enhancements". Your owned mechs will list both quirks and skill tree bonuses on that list.

So flamers are now banned from Solaris. What about this Firestarter in this hero pack that comes with flamers? The loadout is immediately illegal before it's even shipped!

I'm guessing they'll swap them for SPLs.

Is this a desperate attempt from a failing game to cling onto some player base once Battletech launches?

Locust 1V vs Piranha-1. Piranha has 3x the firepower, Locust doesn't have 3x the durability and doesn't have much higher speed. It can run, but the moment it turns to fire the Piranha will chew it to pieces.


That's just PGI power creep and hard point inflation. They've been doing it for ages bringing out OP mechs, obsoleting old ones, then nerfing the new one a month later when yet another mech pack is released. rinse and repeat. PGI loves letting mechs go stale.
