I'm glad to see both the bonus pre-order mech challenge and the 'Log in and get stuff' Hero challenge as well.

They should make a parallel challenge like "kill Warhammer IIC Variants" ;)

I don't know. This mech is pretty squishy.

That’s the same way any time a new mech comes out. People focus down the new shiny. Wait a couple of weeks before you pass final judgement on its squishiness.

Believe me, knowing this, I held back from saying much more.

we shall see. The laser vomit variant seems good but I was hoping for a ballistic variant that I could count on. The Hellbringer does the same High Alpha at 15 less tons. This is a major issue in Faction Play.

I will hold out for the future.

I'll agree to that but only if its done with a regular ol' IS Warhammer...

And Matt must come up with crazy names for each part of the events like:
- "Lets get Hammered!"
- "Its Hammer Time!"
- "Lets Rock the Hammer!"
- "40 Ks with any Warhammer..." Posted Image

Hmmm but he'll end up making one for the "hammerless" anyways and call it.......
"If I had a Hammer..."

frankly loving this mech for what it's capable of and how popular it is. i started playing shortly after the kodiak hype started to die down so this is the first time seeing games after games of 10 of the same chassis all over the field.

speaking of the chassis, from the bit i've played (stadard pack, early adopters, and holiday bonus) so far it's a really solid mech. it's capable of moving like a 70- or 75-tonner while packing more heat and health. this new whammy, in the numbers i've been seeing it in, is shaking team dynamics up and i'm loving the unpredictability of matches now. great mech so far!

<*sees New Event... realizes they can only take part in one Challenge...doesn't let it bother them*> :huh:

Heh... This WILL be fun. And there's a little Something Extra for providing PGI with data based on saturation of WHM-IIC Mechs in the battlefields? Plus, there's beyond ample time? Also, this only asks for normal gameplay that you don't find happening in the usual Events at all? Thank you, "Mr. Awesome" (a.k.a. Matt Newman) & PGI's Events Team, and count me totally in on this. :D

Well, pardon me, Everyone....... I need to go design me a WHM-IIC that will arrive in my bay soon! :o

PGI, if I can be so greedy, they next time you do a 40 or 50% off sale... any chance you could throw in the HGN-IIC-C or the TBR-A? Really any TBR with torso mounted energy. It would super help me out with some builds I want to make, thanks!

Sorry that it's Audio Only, but I couldn't find better... Unfortunately, "Lecrae" hadn't published a Video Version on the same level as "MC Hammer", so I went with what I could find. :mellow:

Anyone else feel the "Bludgeon" is really lacking, best config I've setup is dual PPC and triple er mediums. Is it problem that the mech is hardpoint starved or is it time clans got some form of a heavy PPC.

(I love PPC's btw).

This is how I am running my Bludgeon
https://mech.nav-alp...8866_WHM-IIC-BL

I know it's not PPC's but I hope it gives you some ideas. I have tried to maximize the damage with the small amount of hardpoints.
Why ER Smalls instead of ER Mediums? I do that as they are a lot cooler & the cooldown matches the Large Pulse cooldown nicely, I also prefer the Large Pulse to PPC's on this build for the same reasons. The 15% missile cooldown quirk also brings the ATM12 in line with the other weapons regarding cooldown.
You might feel like dropping the engine to suit(I like the speed myself), Then the ER Mediums would work a bit better but would mess up the cooldown thing.
I hope this helps, builds are pilot specific, what I like others don't. Maybe others could post their Ideas also?
