Two good mechs , my Mad Dog is already starting to itch Posted Image

Minor issue : The HLF-C looks like a copy-paste of the HLF-A with one less ballistic mount ?

Lets see how long it takes for the MASC variant to get 'fixed'.

Minor issue when comparing HLF-A and HLF-C :
- HLF-A has an extra ballistic mount
- HLF-A has an extra ballistic quirck
- HLF-A is cheaper (uses standard armor)

So there's no point in having an HLF-C around : Just buy the HLF-A instead.

At least add a quirk or change the location of the weapon mounts or something ?


A similar statement could be made regarding the HLF-1 and HLF-2/HLF-B, but take note of the max engine on these variants.

Uhm... Pardon me, but... WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?!? I'm sorry, but your short thought isn't very constructive to everyone's collective knowledge. :(

The Hellfire caaaaan be a decent mech. But I've only found 2 variants/builds that I like. The C variant I use as a light chaser in faction warfare. Max engine and with the MASC it'll do about 132 kph.

How many variants did you need ? One is plenty for me :)

Thanks Security Blanket : That's a huge difference.

I use the Hero mech the Void a bit too. It has a UAC jam chance quirk...only -10% but that's still pretty nice to have. So 2 UAC-10s, 2 medium lasers, MASC. No point in running the Hellfire if you don't use MASC. All the other variants I just couldn't get to work well at all.

@ PGI Staff ---

Uhm... something's wrong with the Sale Rack... WarHorns and part of the Colors which were released with the Flea do not appear to be on Sale currently. Didn't check the Bolt-Ons myself, but I think everything that's supposed to be On-Sale needs a double-check to make sure it is! :(

I can highly encourage to try out the Flea! It is a Joy to pilot.

There are those who said the day the Flea would be included in MWO would never come...
What do they have to say now?

Yeah, I might pilot them more when I muster up enough interest to play again. Im on a... hiatus/ vacation from MWO for a while, burnt out Posted Image

Y'all want the FLE-17 or the FLE-20.

The rest range from "lol why" to "wish it was 25 tons"

I watched a FLE-20 take 6 kills and win our team the match after the rest of us were dead. I want one, even if I know that I won't be even half as good or lucky.

Add the fire ant to that. 3 er smalls + 6 machineguns + MASC = awesomesauce.

The standouts of the bunch are definitely the 17, 20 and fire ant though. the hero also isn't bad srm4's plus small lasers can put on some hurt but it lacks MASC for the turbo charge.

The Fleas without MASC are too slow, and the ones with MASC are too slow outside of MASC.

And the hero is a missed opportunity, it should have jump jets.

Maybe there will be a Future Holiday Gift Hero of the Flea with JumpJets? Stay tuned! ^_^
