Greetings MechWarriors,

A Hot-Fix is scheduled to occur today, February 4th at 2PM PDT (10PM UTC), to address the following fixes:

  • 'Mechs equipped with the wrong Jump Jet class can no longer launch into a match.
  • Macro software should no longer be able to output more than the standard damage rate on weapons such as Rotary Auto Cannons and Machine Guns.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

V1.4.195.0

I'm sure it'll be scienced within 30mins of patch going live haha. Keep an eye on Reddit.

THANK YOU! This was really needed. Even when not shot by RACs it felt frustrating because it might have been the case of cheating.

How about RAC heat, not that it's that important as extra DPS but still?

How about finally banning external programms that can do unhuman inputs into the game? That is cheating per definition.

PGI defines what is cheating here, and they have decided macros are fine. Abusing an exploit to deal bonus dps and take less heat thankfully is not.

Did that really need fixing ? :)

Super spiders are hilarious... and to do them you have to sacrifice almost all your firepower to fit heavier jump jets. And the people putting the class Vs into assaults...great... so you have 3-4 jump jets with half the thrust so you get half the distance. Might as well just using a single class I. Same height and less heat.

add to that, that it's quite simply impossible to discover a macro, if they guy using it really wants to. their policy is fine. racro was only a thing because it exploited part of the codemagic behind the rac/mg/etc - and that is simply buggy coding.
which they're (hopefully) fixing right now.

Any chance the invasion event could be extended a bit because of this? I'd normally have enough time to wrap it up after I got home from work, but this hotfix will be dropping right as I get home. With my internet, I don't know that I'll have time to download the patch and finish up the flamer damage I need.

I second this... Please Add the "All Systems Nominal" Event to the List Of Needed Extensions. I just had a miserable weekend that kept me offline. Just when I can finally take a good swing into it, I'm now getting smacked in the face with even MORE downtime through this much-needed HotFix Patch. :(

Truth is ever since the rotary exploit was officially confirmed by PGI, I haven't seen anyone use it : Not just the exploit but even the weapon.

Although I heard it was abused in Solaris before it became an official exploit.

That is programmer speak. Translation, "This seems to work but due to some specifics of production environment I can't guarantee it 100%. Push it and lets test it live, it should work."

I use a macro that came with my razer keyboard but only on one mech and that is the Dragon 5N.
have you tried using the dragon 5n? With a macro, i can make the 5N more feasible and run LF250, 3 UAC2's (take advantage of -40% UAC jam chance), 7 tones of ammo, and 2 medium lasers on the other arm. Without the Macro, the mech will have to run 3 rac2s (waste the -40% jam chance perk) with 6 tons of ammo and a LF250. Then the mech is suddenly easier to disarm and is crippled with long RAC JAM cool downs.

"Should work" in programmer speech means "we have not properly tested it" which in return means "it will work exactly only in the way we tested it which will not fix the issue in its entirety".
Doing software for all my life myself... that's why I am worried about the wording.

Love the patch during EU prime time.

So, server will register less damage just like in good old times? Posted Image
