I've not spent SP yet so keep that in mind:

So far the LB20X 4SRM build is my favourite, but the VEagle is broad enough to get that gun torso shot off extremely quick in a brawl, and the engine size required means you can't be quite as nippy as you'd like. I think survival tree will help a lot here obviously.

The VGL 1 is my next favourite, I have tried a lot of builds that all sucked eggs, but theoretically one should work (such as the uac build but that's just kinda boring).

The other VGLs are rather strange, can't make my mind up about them. I played one round in the Rival so far and it got shot to bits, I ended up doing 480 points of damage more or less with just the ATM 9. Masc is fun, again probably better with SP.

So far I think it has promise, but it's not OP in any respect. I was hoping for a Shadowhawk level of awesome but the quirks are daft and the hardpoint placement is not only assymetrical from left to right, but you also cannot place two energy weapons in the top torso slots (where available) on any of them. Sigh.

Not much enthusiasm for the vgl in this forum.

surprisingly this build worked well on the vgl 1:

uac20 4mpl 3mg

VGL-1

280XL

1 LB10X
4 ERML
2 SRM6

4JJ

Been trying all kinds of builds for this thing, and this is what I feel the most comfortable with so far. It's taken from Baradul's champion mech build, basically the same stuff except with clan tech and jjs.

Might feel like a lot of weapons to manage, but it works pretty well atleast for me. LB10X and ERML at midrange, and switch out lasers for the SRMs when it turns brawly and the lasers are too hot to use. o7

So I've been occasionally playing a stupid, ridiculous and largely pointless build that nevertheless is comedy at its finest when it "goes off":

Take a VGL 1 and add a gauss rifle. Throw in three tons of ammo and an xl 245 engine with its spare heatsink and a couple of jump jets. Sprinkle with 4 heavy medium lasers and layer with a decidedly thin topping of ferro fibrous armour. You will need to shave the head and right arm, and probably the legs as well.

Now, for the final touch:

Pop that second gauss rifle in there, it ought to fit nice and snug.

Simmer to within 300m of your target and fire everything at once. As soon as the lasers stop burning take your finger off the trigger as the gauss rifles will be finished charging.

Cons:

If someone shoots your left arm off, you will die from the resulting chain reaction.

Pros:

70 point alpha strike on 55 tons without over heating; people asking in chat how much the VGL weighs.

Guess that's a build i have to try next... Posted Image

I'm quite happy about the VGL-2. Even on announcement that mech screamed PPCs and MGs! With 6 JJs and those quirks you can poptart all over the place (outside of Solaris City). Posted Image
That's how it has ended up and that's the way it works.

So far, only VGL I've actually liked to pilot has been the VGL-4. 1 LPLas and 6 ERMLas, 23 DHS.

VGL-4

A^;D4:61|5f|l^|l^|l^pb0|l^|l^|l^|l^qb0|l^|l^|l^|l^rS0|lB|lB|lBsS0|0C|lB|lB|lBt^0|l^u^0|l^v70w202020

Runs pretty cool, hits pretty hard, and if you have speed tweak is pushing close to 100 while doing so. Can get two alphas off without shutting down, and can throttle the heat bar with the three weapon grounds (left arm ERMLas, right arm ERMLas, LPLas).

I found the arms come off really easy on the vgl.

Running 3 lpl now in the torso and it works well.

I like this one. VGL-1. You can fiddle with ammo and engine, etc.
