I would like for the current mechs that are less frequently used now to be updated or revised to make them more desirable to use. I think there are some mechs that players don't use them because they are difficult to use effectively. It could be quirks, hard point arrangement or hit boxes.

The Civil War addition missed a couple of weapon systems that would have given the Inner Sphere some advantageous options, the light autocannons. These could be added with little disruption to the game, using AC/2 and AC/5 ammunition respectively, and using the same visual assets as their standard counterparts. Just less weight for each and a 2crit profile for the light AC/5. Their optimal ranges could be set at 500m for the Light AC/5 and 560m for the Light AC/2, with their maximum ranges at twice their respective optimal ranges. Hence, they would pair nicely with PPCs and Large Lasers.

Further, this would make the Mauler 1K an available variant in the game, which I am sure snake fans, um, the Dragon, would appreciate. Posted Image

The problem is that Light PPC has made Light AC-5 effectively obsolete.

Light PPC:
  • it is significantly lighter
  • it offers better range
  • it does more damage
  • it needs no ammo (i.e. additional tonnage)
  • it can not run out of ammo
  • it has no ammo that could be critted
On many light, medium and faster heavy 'Mechs it is easier to find 6-9 tons for 2-3 Light PPCs than 10-15 tons (plus 2-3 tons of ammo) for 2-3 Light AC-5s.



And I guess that slow heavies and assaults would go either with standard AC-5s or with any other heavy energy or ballistic weapon.

Light PPCs, may have a comparable weapon profile, but how many heat sinks do you need to stay cool? Larger mechs with the tonnage to spare and easily heat capped by multiple energy weapons may opt for a cooler, ballistic alternative. Additionally, mechs with more ballistics than energy weapons can't boat the Light PPC. Consider the application to the following mechs:
  • CHP-1NB - 4xLAC/2 4xERML LFE280
  • CHP-1NB - 4xLAC/5 4xERML LFE255
  • JM6-DD - 6xLAC/2
  • MAD-3R - 3xLAC/5 2xLL 2xERML
  • RFL-3C - 4xLAC/5 2xERML
  • RFL-LK - 4xLAC/5 2xERML
  • RGH-BLT - 4xLAC/5 2xLPPC
  • WHM-BW - 4xLAC/5 2xLPPC
  • ANH-2A - 6xLAC/5 2xPPC
  • COR-5T - 6xLAC/2 2xLL 2xERML
  • KGC-000 - 6xLAC/5 1xHPPC
  • MAL-MX90 - 6xLAC/2 2xLPPC

IMHO, Clan mech's should be made less dense (i.e. larger for a given tonnage) in order to make them a bit easier to hit - and give room in terms of game-balance to further enhance clan weapons... bringing them more in line with lore.

Also... Inner-sphere Omnis? That is what I'd be excited about.

Cygnus

I would like to see some more weapon options as well...Arrow missles, mountable artillery, X-Pulse...rotary 10's and 20's...larger selection of machine guns. I heard someone complain about the supply drops you earn after so many missions once...how about putting lost tech, or new tech not avalible in the lab in those drops to make it more interesting.

Sunder and Avatar, all variants. This will save the game, fix balance issues, and increase your efficiency in the bed room, guaranteed.


I don't care if it makes my "flesh like that of donkeys and issue like that of horses", I'm not paying for it.

Someone also said in the game they buy stuff because it supports the game. This is owned by Microsoft. They are not starving. And they over-enforce rules to make this game as dull as possible, in my opinion. Probably because they are all Canadian.

PGI could code every mech that actually exists, which would make it look far more genuine, and it would make no difference to the general weak feeling of the game. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: tweaking exactly how long a ER Medium Laser fires on Mech X and Mech Y one thousand times, back and forth, to get it "just right", are a bunch of overpaid programmers wanking for your hard earned C-Bills.

Long live the text fixes!

You seem to have an axe to grind with canadians. You should stop that.

We did get one of these, the Crusader, which has turned out to be a pretty popular mech within the game currently so GJ PGI, some of these would be really cool to have: the Stinger and the Wasp would be cool light mechs to see, I have seen fan artwork for their MWO designs but it would make sense for them not to add these because of the whole Battletech vs Macross stuff. then again, they did get away with the Warhammer, Marauder and Archer.

I can't wait until the Longbow is released and ported over to MWO. Finally, we get to see a classic in its classic form without that MW4 artwork bulls--t.

Longbow. A dedicated LURMER. I would love it as an MRM-monsta (I hate IS LRMs)...
For PGI's honour their Longbow already looks x1000 times better than the horrible MW4 abomination...

When I hear the sounds of laser gun like «Pew-Pew», it reminds me of sounds from children's cartoons. When a laser gun is fired, a low-frequency hum of the operation of power transformers and other devices for pumping the laser beam should be heard.

I know this mod, as well as other similar ones. This mod has good laser sounds, but I don't like the rest of the sounds. In addition, the volumes of many sounds are not optimally set. PGI's sounds volumes are well balanced, so I don't use sound mods.
