Which does nothing to address the fact that specifically the Ultraviolet, the one, you know, pay real money for, is now obsolete as the other comment says. You can run it with a different (read: worse) build? Sure, but everyone and their grandmas got that hero to run 8 UAC/LBX 2s with it's omnipods. Now it needs some kind of buff like the other comment says.

the Longbow urgently needs more Quirks:

For example :
-10% to missile heat
+10% speed on rockets

The one with +6 LRM5...is rather suboptimal


In addition, you can't attach decals properly like with the other mechs of this type (Stone Rhino + Longbow), because they constantly jump up and down but can never be placed where you want.

Do players who bought a legendary pack get access to the battlepass if we buy the pack from steam? I bought it yesterday and it does not seem to be unlocked. Ive played a couple games and gotten xp so it cant be that. sorry if the solution is obvious and i did not see it!




EDIT: ive looked at the page om my phone and it worked there so problem fixed! ive redeemed my items!

They finally released a hero/legendary mech called the Spitfire, so I can finally make an MWO version of this meme

Is there anyway PGI can allow the Spitfire to equip an AMS when all the hardpoints are used? I know there is a 16 hardpoint limit but is there anything that could be changed that would an AMS to be equipped?

You don't run the UV though, you run it on the C with ECM. That's the advantage to the DWF.

I'm not saying this is awesome, but totally obsoleted isn't fair either.

LGB-0H is a BattleTech Longbow variant armed with 26 Rocket Launchers and a pair of PPCs. Since you can not arm your 'Mech with so many weapons in MWO, its loadout had to be adjusted to become MWO-legal.

Unfortunately, in MWO it has been saddled with the absolutely mismatched name, since that WW2 Supermarine Spitfire typically carried autocannons and machine guns, while being a very agile dogfighter. The MWO Longbow "Spitfire" is unable to carry either the former or the later, and as for its agility ...

you need the uv arms to make 8 ballistics on the dire

also if the dire had high mounts ecm wouldn't be so neccesary, because right now it requires full exposure to bring all weapons donwn range

Yes. I know. You buy the UV and use its pods on the C. That’s what I was saying.

Why is cheaper on steam? It shouldn't be the other way around?

Ok, I don't how if this relevant, or not. I tried to place Decals on my Longbows, and the Decals will not stay in place. This includes Spitfire. Please fix the decals. Cause to me, it seems this was a rushed job, and a damn sloppy one at that.

Heck, I couldn't even place the House Insignias on the front of the drums of the missile launchers. All I got was a crossed out line in a square. So please fix this.

Ohh and these two guys are not joking :

I have seen the poor DWF underperform during Quick Play games and maybe one or two players even looking around like "What the heck should I do now ?!" Posted Image

LURMageddon is upon us already ?!

No need to buff that kind of lame gameplay at all !!! Posted Image

It's in there somewhere but could have been clearer Posted Image Posted Image

Also the DWF-C with ECM is a relatively new addition to the game so in the past the DWF-UV was all we had Posted Image

Full Exposure + Low Speed = Sloooooow mech that goes down waaaay too fast! Posted Image



Something totally different :



Why are these 2 mechs modelled so small while they seemed to be really large mechs when I saw them on SARNA for example ?!

Some pictures posted on the forum here in the past suggested that they should be very large too ??
