Maybe they should require you to do the Challenge with "Set Of 8" Status intact? :P

Otherwise, you're looking at a lot of OmniPod swaps, and running hot. Worse, PGI can't really get data about how their new release is doing in terms of battlefield viability. Sure, it's an OmniMech, but if you're doing all the Variants with the same Loadout, what was the point of PGI releasing multiple Variants or having OmniMechs in the first place? :mellow:

I normally run OmniMechs for a few matches like that in the first week or two, but I made an exception for the BAS-A with that sexy ECM + JJ CT Posted Image

But, if I were going to keep stock OmniPods;
Prime - 2 Gauss, 6 HML - Superhot, but can *just* Alpha on Caustic w/o any skills point investment
A - 4 LPL, ECM - A jumpy Warhawk
B - Gauss, LPL, 3 ERML, 2 ATM6 - Abomination, but why not?
C - 3 LB10X, ERPPC - Little short on ammo, but sandblast all the components!
D - 4 UAC2, 2 ERLL - All range, all day.
Rancor - 2 ATM9, 2 ERLL, 4 MPL - Another abomination!

@ Main Mech Challenge Topic ---

So... PGI... Where's the Challenge for all those who will be online versus these Blood Asp pilots? Perhaps we could have a theme that's something along the lines of "Indiana Jones" movies with the star character saying "I Hate Snakes"? Or perhaps a theme of "Snakes on a Plane" would be more your meme? :P

The challenge for everyone else is, 'Queue in an assault other than a Blood Asp' Posted Image

Only if you haven't finished "May Days! - Day 13: Assault Day", which I already have. ;)

Plus, the "Blood Asp 'Mech Quick Play Challenge" doesn't start until AFTER the other one finishes. So at current, while their thing is running, there's nothing for the rest of us to remain enticed into filling the queues. Therefore I had been left wondering if PGI could add something to entice all the other people to stick around while these new Blood Asp pilots are clomping about in their Mechs. :mellow:

Heck, I'm wondering how many people got their "Savior Kill" on "May Days! - Day 9: I'm Helping Day", as it might give more reason to use that metric in Challenges. :huh:

Why are you limiting yourself from mechs you could quite enjoy?

With the bad clan voices, I can't enjoy playing clan mechs.

@Devnull: Savior kill was easy, but I had too much to do to to get the 500+ MS more than once.

Never heard of sound mods have you? You can get full MW2/3/4 voices in the packs currently available.

How can you hate on Morbo the Annihilator? I'm just glad he found work after Futurama.

For the standard pack challenge, does BAS-Prime (S) count as plain BAS-Prime or does it only count for collector challenge?

As always, it only counts for the BAS-Prime (S) part of the challenge.

While usually a XYZ-Prime, a XYZ-Prime (C) and a XYZ-Prime (S) have identical stats except for the CB or XP bonus, they are technically 3 different chassis'. The could differ in every aspect, even agility, (max) engine rating or hardpoints.

Oh, I have. Used one from ... Haven Kendrick(?) Don't really remember. Didn't try the clan voices, would be hard to mess these up more, imo even silence would be better. The custom voices for IS I didn't like. And the changed weapons sounds were ok, but irritating.
I haven't ever touched MW2/3/4, so I have no fond memories of these games.

Who? Watched a few of the early seasons of Futurama, but I don't remember someone called Morbo.
