I get up every morning early to get online and stream. Faction play is the best way to get viewers for me at this time. Scouting only not only hurt my stream but everyone as well who likes to game before they go to work. I really think if there is scouting it should be in an option not the only choice to make for 4 sinking hours. Fix this I am still contributing to yall by giving out free mech packs to my viewers. If you want me to continue....

And also 2nd day of non stop IS vs IS to boot...

The 2018 Faction Play with it's clear Tug-Of-War mechanic and separate scouting OPTION was working fine, why was it replaced with this antagonizing mess ?

IS has lrms too; often with even more range with which you could backline.

But a flat arc. That's barely servicable for leech-locking from 800m+.

On topic: Hot Damn! Why is Scouting always on when I am occupied with real life stuff?

You were LRMing just fine in IS mechs?

Although you were not doing much damage because you can't run around in your Clan ATM boats with ECM and sneaking up on the Tier 5s.

Was funny to see you actually avoid me couple days ago, you knew full well you'd get dunked if you came near me. Just 4 waves of skillboats... Lulz.

After grinding 51k damage with exclusively IS mechs, followed by 2 days of exclusively IS Faction Play, I did end up using IS LRMs : Turns out IS LRMs perform way better then Clan LRMs.

They produce less heat, have a smaller cooldown, a tighter spread and their tight missile clusters is much better suited at both cutting through AMS and focusing damage instead of sprinkling that damage all over the place like Clan LRMs do.

I mean I was performing better at long range without using Artemis with IS LRMs, then when I was using Clan LRMs at mid range with Artemis...

And cherry on top, when fighting IS vs Clan you're unlikely to be facing any mechs with more then 1 AMS on it.

The difference is so big I have no idea what's going on as far as Clan/IS balance goes.

Well yea, I've been avoiding IS the whole year, when it's IS vs IS I just take the day off.

Then I spent a ~week buying, grinding, reselling IS mechs instead of going FP, and when it's finally time to go back to FP I get stuck with 2 days of non stop IS vs IS...

And after the second day of IS vs IS, I "ended up" going for IS, which took me ~11 months to do.

Only to find out that IS LRMs perform a whole lot better then the clan ones.

I didn't ask for your story.

It was funny seeing you in a single game, in an Anni.
That required you to actually expose your mech and aim... ofc course you were promtly disposed of.

Next game? Back to parasitic LRMing from behind your entire team, never exposing.

Hilariously bad.

Clan LRMs work poorly from the back, even with Artemis.

IS LRMs work great from the back, even without Artemis.

No reason to expect me to be using IS LRMs from 200m away, anymore then I expect you to be using machine guns to snipe from over 1200m away.

Nope, I did surprisingly well with the Annihilator, 3 solo kills on my first FP match, and because I just purchased it during the "grind 51k IS damage" event it's not even skilled yet.

And neither is the IS LRM boat, and it's already overperforming any fully skilled and finely tuned Clan LRM boat I've ever used as it is.

I watched you walk out into the open and get torn apart.

Thats what happens when you've become so used to LRMing while hiding behind 11 other players that you dont understand positioning.

Well that does sound like the only game I played with it : In that game I walked out in the open 4 times, tore apart my 3 solo kills and scored over 5583xp, allowing me to unlock 6 skill nodes for it.

In comparison when I play my fully skilled up Kodiak you can safely remove 2 or 3 solo kills.

I don't believe you have mechs that aren't lrm boats, pics or it didn't happen
