WOW those have got to be some of the most unsatisfying fights I've ever had in MWO. From BS lame spammers who essentially sit at spawn with 6x ac2s on their GD annhiliators to Fenrirs who blindly charge at you with heavy gauss, the cheese is intense. Just min/max ur biscuits off in the lab with quirks then pilot like a blindfolded yak because HEY if i just walk at them and shoot my build will make it happen! Half the weapons in the game are useless as is half the equipment -- let's all pilot the same mech (according to the leaderboards and every GD game I've played) and then disable chat so we can't even talk sht. YAY. WONDERFUL. THX.

Try one of the lower divisions.

Let me get this straight...

- you're complaining about people who play range builds
- you're complaining about people who play brawl builds


... am I missing anything?

The current Divisions are a bad concept. They need to rethink those. I realize they were made to maximize the possible match-ups, but if they don't work they will minimize the possible playerbase. Heh! Min-maxxing.

In my opinion mixed Class divisions will only work if full range maps are added. 600 meters to the map's edge forces a brawl and the mech with the greatest tonnage will win unless it is a garbage mech or a bad pilot.

An alternative is to base the leader boards on the mech type used and ignore overall wins and kills, but this is really not the best route to fixing Solaris 7's problems. And S7 has some major problems. We'll see, but if S7 interest really dies, I hope they don't wait 3 months to do something.

We need a 12 V 12 all against all battle where the map is 1500M wide and 1500M long.
Rapid brutal matches like Solaris of MW4 Mercs was. This would be fun, cash and points awarded for kills, KMDD, and how long you live.
MECH selection based on tonnage, (light, med, heavy, assault then an anything goes bout after 5 rounds or something) Bonus Cash For Damage / Ton ratio also would be good on the championship rounds to promote diversity of mechs fielded.

Just my thoughts.

I think he's complaining that people in Solaris are even more slavishly devoted to the meta than QP and even FP. Unfortunately, that's the nature of the game and when you 1v1 it's all down to you.

Yeah, and wait for the stealth armor mech to come of of hiding and kill the second to last guy.
