I would agree if the missiles didnt explode 5 feet from my mech in three matches with closest enemy over 600. Dont fix things that arent broke , there is plenty broke with this game that they choose not to fix. My guess is there will be a hot patch within the next few days to fix the stuff they screwed up with this patch , just like always.

Conversely I've been playing a fast and jump LRM30 or 40 Griffin and still managed to put up 350-600 damage. Did great in the tunnel on Crimson, did great on Mining even.

Stick to the edges, stay mobile. It's a DPS weapon, not a sniper weapon.

is 600 damage even good for LRMs? They spread like hell.

For a medium in QP? It's alright. Not great, but alright. They don't spread nearly as bad, mostly it's CT damage now if you've got LOS.

I'll be honest, I've been having fun playing with the new LRM mechanics. The trajectory for direct fire is just like ATMs and it's interesting to get used to again.

One thing I have noticed is that with the new buff to AMS, Artemis is useless weight. Not even worth it. Neither is group firing to get a huge initial kick. Chainfiring does seem to sandpaper them down, though, so it all works out.

Not really worth firing in line of sight unless you're part of a charge, then it's pretty funny to watch.

Expected stupid threads like this to pop up.
Apparently you forget to take into account all the AMS currently fielded by everyone who hates LRMs and their moms before you opened this thread.
All AMS got was a buff to range. Mechs with AMS quirks even lost those quirks. Damage or RoF on AMS was not buffed.

Less Missile Health is still an indirect buff to AMS.

AMS also shoots through hills and obstacles. Could have been someone on the other side of a hill you may not notice.

Take lurms get the direct fire low arc and watch ams kill your missiles through terrain. Don't believe us test it yourself.

Missiles(all types) got a nerf to health(stealth ams buff) and ams shoots through terrain killing direct fire shots they shouldn't.
