I am sure it has been brought up, I just wanted to add the recording I got of the bug in action.



There is no comparative measuring in that video itself but the earlier upload has many fights with the exact same setup, and I will upload more videos that show my general heat too, so I am very certain this is an issue, the dissipation rate just dumps out for seemingly no reason.

Yea, it's pretty obviously the heat bug. One of the most annoying bugs in this game. I've encountered it probably half a dozen times. Occasionally you can get it bugged the other way, where you have greatly increased heat dissipation... it's crazy.

So annoying that it has been around for so long yet remains unfixed. Only hope is that it rears its ugly head multiple times during the championship matches to highlight how bad it is.

Got it twice in a row in one game on caustic fp. 4 volleys (split up for ghost heat) from slapbacker and I'm dead.

They're still too busy making more unnecessary "balance" nerfs to fix real bugs. Sounds sarcastic but I'm pretty sure it's true.

After we split up a KCom group got going and we dropped vs ISMO. On Caustic we all had the heat bug. More total deaths to heat then the enemy, for both sides.

It made an otherwise fun match absolute ****.

Had a dual Heavy ppc ShadowHawk. Fired once and it never cooled down. Fired again and cooked myself. Was Awesome to say the least. Heatsinks and heat Gen quirks didnt do squat.
The Machine gun boats had a field day in that match.

i reported it about a year ago. Nothing from pgi. I found the fix though. Restart your client. Completely exit and fire it up again. Its clearly some bit of code swapping between the server and client, if exiting the client fixes it... but i'm not going to disect the code and do PGI's job for them.

Doesn't really solve the problem of "oh sh**, I can't cool down, I'm gonna die real quick like this..." situation that you originally find yourself in, though. Lol

It's a weather feature, extreme heatwave without warning.

I've actually found this occurs any time I remove my tinfoil hat.




Must be microwave radiation.


In all seriousness tho.... plz fix this bug. Its game breaking.
