Upcoming Patch - 19 JUNE 2018 @ 10AM – 1PM PDT
Patch Number: 1.4.174.0
Standalone Client Patch Size: 1 GB
Steam Client Patch Size: 1.8 GB

Greetings MechWarriors,

Much news has appeared in the last couple weeks with MWO! This includes the newly launched MechCon 2018 Page with already-sold-out VIP tickets and 61 Collector tickets remaining, a whole new set of rules for the upcoming MWO World Championships 2018, the Roadmap to give you a snapshot of what's coming in the next 2 months, big events and sales currently in progress, a community-voted poll on 8v8 in Quick Play, and an informative post from Lead Designer Paul about future tuning and development for weapon balance along with a community feedback thread from Balance Designer Chris!

And finally, early posted June Patch Notes! We've got an exciting long awaited feature to share with you as well as the release of a long awaited 'Mech! Lots of improvements to a couple of features, value changes, and many bug fixes, which you can enjoy reading about in details below.

-The MechWarrior Team




Flea
The very long awaited Flea has arrived!

You can check out the Countdown post for more details about the Flea as they are released!





Build Profile Saving and Sharing

Have you always wanted to save or export a 'Mech's loadout or Skill Tree build to share other MechWarriors? Or import or load in a 'Mech's loadout or Skill Tree build from other MechWarriors? Well now it's possible with great ease!

In the MWO client, you will be able to Save/Load and Export/Import a 'Mech's loadout and Skill Tree build in the MechLab and Skill Tree. The difference between Save/Load and Import/Export is that Save/Load deal with files stored on your PC and Import/Export copies a hash string to your clipboard which you can use to share builds with other people in chat, the forums or anywhere you can paste text.



The information stored in 'Mech loadout builds are the following:
  • Mech's weapons loadout
  • Mech's armor distribution
  • Mech's ammunition payload
  • Mech's equipment items
  • Mech's engine type/size

Information NOT stored in 'Mech loadout builds are the following:
  • Consumables
  • Cockpit items
  • Bolt-Ons
  • Patterns & Colours
  • Decals



The information stored in Skill Tree builds are the following:
  • The selected 'Mech's Skill Tree layout and which nodes are unlocked and selected.

Information NOT stored from Skill Tree layouts are the following:
  • The currency used to unlock the nodes.
  • Order of the unlocked nodes.
  • The unlocked but not selected nodes.
  • Both systems will not allow you to save/apply changes made to your personal 'Mech without the proper currencies required.



New Bolt-On for all 'Mech Chassis
Propane Tank




Competitive Play
Comp Play access has been re-enabled in preparation of the MWO World Championships 2018 along with the following changes to accommodate the new rules:
  • Updated map selections in the Map Banning Screen with Canyon Network, Rubellite Oasis, Mining Collective, Caustic Valley and Grim Plexus.
  • Restricted to Stock Inner Sphere 'Mechs only.
  • Restricted to 3039 Tech.
  • Maximum of 3 'Mechs per weight class (3/3/3/3).
  • Tonnage restriction of 480 tons.
  • No duplicate chassis 'Mechs.
  • Consumables will be allowed in both Comp Play and Stock Mode option in Private Lobby.
  • Comp Play will only be accessible on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays Saturdays for 24 hours per day (starting at midnight PST).
[UPDATED EDIT]
We have moved the Sunday time slot to Saturday to better accommodate all time zones.

Rubellite Oasis Conquest
The Conquest mode capture points in the Rubellite Oasis map have been changed to best accommodate for the upcoming MWOWC2018!

Here is a BEFORE (old) and AFTER (new) of the capture points to compare them:

BEFORE (old)


AFTER (new)




Single Heat Sinks
  • Cooling increased to 0.13 (from 0.12)
  • Added heat threshold increased to 1.3 (from 1.2)
  • Heat Sink Design notes: We are improving the baseline heat sink values to provide more direct benefit to stock 'Mechs for both newer players and participants in the 2018 MWOWC.

Ammo
Ammo values for Auto cannon and Missile based weapons being increased for both single ton, and half ton increments:

Right Torso
  • Torso Turn Rate (Yaw) +7.5% added
  • Torso Turn Angle (Yaw) +5 added

Timber Wolf Design notes: As the only 'Mech previously assigned negative quirks, we have decided to roll a number of these values into the baseline stats of the 'Mech and provide counter balancing positive quirks similar to other Clan 'Omnimechs rather then negative quirks. Some of the older quirks that we no longer utilize such as reverse speed, have been phased out from this pass. The net results will see the Timber Wolf operating at about 5-10% extra efficiency through a number of attributes that have been either phased out or reduced depending on their assignments.

For example, Despite the reduction to core Torso Turn Rate speed, the net result produces a higher value compared to where it is now:
Old settings, TBR-S Right Torso + TBR-Prime Left Torso:
  • 76.5 base - 10% = 68.85 total
New settings, TBR-S Right Torso + TBR-Prime Left Torso
  • 68 base + 7.5% = 73.1 total

Patch Files (Direct Download)

To make the patching process easier for players with limited download caps, we'll be providing direct download links for the patch file(s) that comprise this patch. This will allow you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, for manual injection into the MWO patcher through a Patch Cache folder.
Aside from allowing you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, on another connection, there are no additional benefits to performing the patch this way; the patching process itself will be the same.
This direct patch download process will only work for players running the standalone client. It does not apply to players running MWO through Steam.

Patch File(s):


How to use these patch files
  • • Download the above file(s)
  • • For sake of ease we recommend creating a dedicated folder for the patch file(s), such as 'MWO Patch Cache'
  • • You do not need to unzip or unpack the patch file(s)
  • • Launch the MWO Portal
  • • Select the three horizontal lines in the top left of the Portal Window
  • • Choose the 'Specify Patch File Cache' option
  • • In the field that appears, paste or enter the location in which you saved the patch file(s) and hit OK
  • • For example, C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MWO Patch Cache
  • • Click the blue Patch button
  • • The launcher will now check the Patch Cache folder you defined. If it locates the required patch files, it will unpack and use those files to apply the patch.
  • • Once the patch is complete, launch the game

Do any of the bolt on support or weapon refit changes drastically alter the locations of the hardpoints on a mech?

Agreed, I was having problems killing Blood Asps sometimes in faction play, the new giant "KILL ME" signs above it's head will help me put down more clanners than ever before.

Ammo changes: almost universally good except for-

NARC ammo change: wut? The weapon that deals no damage whatsoever gets buffed by adding...one non-damaging shot to it's load per ton of ammo. None for 1/2 a ton.

At the least, make it 14 shots per ton, 7 per half ton. Poor NARCs are a heavy burden as it is for most pilots who use them, you could literally have given them another 50% bonus ammo per ton and it still wouldn't have been overdoing it.

it's not a huge deal, but you should make the shots per ton an even number so you don't lose ammo by using half ton increments.

Storm Crow:

  • SCR-PRIME, SCR-B side torsos and SCR-LC left torso gaining an Armor +9 quirk.
  • SCR-B,SCR-C, SCR-LC arms gaining additional armor quirks based on hardpoint layout.




As if scouting wasn't imbalanced enough in favor of the clans already.

More ammo is great, but why not simply normalize AC ammo at 200 damage/ton?

Right now the AC10 will keep standing out as super ammo efficient at 230dmg/ton while all the other ACs all stay below 200dmg per ton for no obvious reason. It doesn't make much sense.

200dmg/ton would also give you nice even numbers of rounds/ton like so:

AC2 = 100
AC5 = 40
AC10 = 20
AC20 = 10

Light gauss = 24
Gauss = 12
Heavy Gauss = 8

(multiply by burst sizefor clan and UACs)

That seems like the most logical thing to do right? Also makes them all divisible by 2 for half tons and allows the player to easily calculate their potential damage cap for a given build.

The same could be said about missiles, why should MRMs do 340 damage/ton while most others have around 250 damage/ton? Why not just normalize it at 300 damage/ton or something?

PGI, please reduce Solaris queue time to 120s or 90s with this patch.

I don't think anyone will look forward to S7 events with the ridiculous 3min timer, juding from all the feedback in the Solaris forums.

So the negative Timberwolf quirks are still there... you just won't see them... wtf?


Emm.. *sigh*

Can someone from PGI clarify this a bit better.
None of the Clan mechs should have negative quirks anymore, its no way needed anymore. Its a curse from before the Skill tree too.
Yeah I like to pilot clan mechs aswell as is mechs and even I see these neg quirks totally uneeded.

Otherwise. Alot of nice changes

- The Flea!
- MOAR ammo for mizzils weppons and moar bollets for ballsistic weppons! Posted Image
- More awesome looking blood asp with hopefully nicer placement of weapons. Now, fix the Nightstar and Banshee hardpoints. To up, up, up!
- Save/ load loadouts and skills, nice!
- SHS boating now META!
- Improved framerate on the S7 map, much needed!
