When the legendaries go on sale for MC, I feel morally obligated to buy the longbow to run 14xLRM5 in two chainfire groups.

Will it be effective? No. Will it be fun? Also no.

That is going to happen in Summer 2024. Who knows what quirks it will have.

Look again... LRM5 Weapon Changes:
IS: LRM5: increased to firing 6x LRM5 weapons at once without ghost heat penalty.
IS: LRM5: Now in its own separate ghost heat linked penalty group.

ie: 6xLRM5 can now complement 2xLRM20 without any Ghost Heat, on any normal mech!

- - - - - - - - - -
==> As for LGB-0H(LGD), it's got +6 HSL for LRM5, meaning that it can fire 12x LRM5 at once, no Ghost Heat!
==> Or it can fire 2xLRM20 + 12xLRM5 (if you can fit all that into one mech... did not theory-craft it yet) with no Ghost Heat.

Enjoy Posted Image

I would like the patch note to include comments on changes to weapons, equipment and mechs. It is not clear why these or those changes are being introduced. For example, why were the rotary cannons redesigned? Less damage and higher rate of fire. For what? To make it more difficult for the game engine to count damage?


Rac change is to fix an issue with macros.

D'oh, I forgot to send those to be included in the patch notes. They're in the patch though. My fault for not getting those in for the writeup.


This mech was chosen because it's Daeron's favorite mech and he wanted a Christmas themed one. So that's the one we went with. We usually check against previous free mech events since I made the GHR-5H blunder, but this one is a special occasion.

Is there any chance of a hunt the streamer event, as I note that the 12-Days of Christmas Treasure Hunt is for content creators only. As we all found out recently streaming on twitch doesn't count as content


Can only work if rewards get uploaded to your google drive. And you don't have one.

Hello. You have done a lot of great things past year, but one thing you refuse to count - why diveaway same mechs as was given before?.. WHM-6R was september free event mech in 2021...
Anyway, I hope You will keep it going, dear devs, and on next NY we will be able to say "hell, 2023 was great, but that 2024 was amazing!" :) Thank you for all your job and happy new year!

CLAN DOUBLE HEAT SINKS
  • Clan Double Heat Sink dissipation rate has been reduced to 0.2 heat per second per heatsink (from 0.22). This affects both internal engine heat sinks and externally mounted heat sinks.
Simply wrong

What is it?

That means that your RACs will fire slightly faster - 10 projectiles per second instead of 7 projectiles per second as it is now - but since that one tiny projectile will do less damage, the total damage and heat per second will stay unchanged.

yep but you or me don't make those decisions, only the cauldron in their third party site. behind a closed but not locked door...

Though i gotta ask do we have to do balances EVERY MECHIN MONTH? can we instead focus on game engine stability? or other bugs??? maybe game optimization??? Do people whine that much about "this mech is OP?" that you can't focus time on making the game engine better?

Love the holiday themed mechs and can't wait to deliver holiday cheer with a happy helping of AC10s and lasers : >

Question: why the RAC changes? I like the ammo increase but why the RPM increase and DMG decrease only to have the same DPS? kind of feels like digging a hole just to fill it back in.

I dig the UK Spitfire theme of the longbow, LOL, and love that it's based on the LGB-0H since I even left a comment about including that variant in the original Longbow post for MW5. If PGI wanted to do a custom theme for a Longbow, do an A10 Warthog. Put a RAC in the CT with a compliment of missile HPs in the side torsos and arms.

The move to fix a RAC exploit without nerfing RACs is appreciated - nice to know there is ongoing behind-the-scenes work to stamp out exploits when possible.
