I've been playing mine a lot lately. This is like Clan Smoke Jaguar's answer to the Timber Wolf and Hellbringer combined. Except unlike the others in MWO it actually has armor quirks which make this omnimech pretty tough IMO. At stock armor it has 30 tons of pod space since it mainly skips leg day, but who shoots at those anyway? Posted Image I just wish it had a canon configuration with jump jets!

Nice.

LOVE my Ebon Jag, I run this fairly common build which rewards active, yet smart, play very well:

https://mwo.nav-alph...82ca90af_EBJ-A

It doesn't have the ECM of the recent TBW release but it's cooldown quirks allow it to output a lot more damage for those that are careful or able to stay safely engaged.

Looking forward to adding another to my stable (although might set this new one up for long range in the hopes of seeing Faction play becoming viable again).

Link is broken my dude, Not doubting your skills but you kinda need a build to begin with to do damage Posted Image

I've been running the Bucaneer Jag in ostentatious colors as my primary mech for a good year now. Glad to see everyone else can now come be as cool as me Posted ImagePosted Image

Are the events working properly?
Played two games and still all progress is 0


the event started only before about 7 minutes since you posted that, playing 2 games normally takes longer then that, at least one of those games are likely outside of that time frame thus was before the event started, try playing a match and see if you got any progress.

Kewl. Another free Clan heavy is always a plus. That and the GSP rewards.

Ebon Jaguar has very nice (read: high) shoulder mounts for hill humping!

Very nice indeed ;)

Nice mech but tends to fall apart fast under combined fire.. I like them but they can feel a bit paper thin.
