Oh god, i built it, i went all out with double heat sinks, endo steel, the works.

45 continuous rounds before i got to 90 heat single firing. It never stops

I killed something. In my book that makes it totally worth every c bill.

Game number 2 with it, i found an atlas and just pegged him. So satisfying.

Here is the problem. Cicada is 40 tons.

You broke the medium mech threshold, so your equal opponent is a medium mech. Chances are they are not a Cicada, given it is a glorified light and there aren't a few thousand players bopping around in one like Centi's and Hunches.

Given that your equal opponent is a 'medium' mech, you are better off taking the Hunch 4G for 50 tons of AC2 goodness. It can also slot 3, except have enough tonnage left over for armor and heat dissipation.

I understand the appeal of the joke mech, after all I built a 4G with three UAC5 back before the jamming mechanic; but if you are looking to min/max the AC2, you should go with a bigger mech.

If you just like dorking people in a 40 ton Cicada, then rock rock on. Like their cockpit.
