Brilliant, you deserve a medal for that video; I lol'd so hard :D

Btw, is there a similar video of a 6 PPC awesome anywhere? If not, you should totally do that! I'd love to see that especially with such background music ;)

I second that! Real men don't use heat-sinks. You've shamed me into squeezing more weaponry into my builds.

Do the same thing in a Hunchback with a 250XL, have more heatsinks and go faster?
(You end up with 35 free tons after structure, engine, and mandatory heatsinks. An XL 125 cicada only has 31)

I'm kinda tempted to try this on my hunch SP now...

For that matter in a K2 you could do over 60kph with 18DHS and 8 tons of armor.

trolling like a boss.

I wonder wether I could pull the same shxx in a cat, too.

At 4:05 when the Hunchie teammate looks at the "Noisy Cricket" like, 'Over-heated again huh?'

Love it.

That video was just hilarious!!! I was rolling every time the jeopardy music kicks in. I think my mech needs a sound system.

Do you get sick of always using a good mech ? This might be a build for you:

I like your style. We need more threads like this.

Back before engine limits were added (maybe you can still do this?) I put a 400 engine in my Atlas and filled every energy slot with flamers for shock value. I don't think I ever accomplished anything in it that would be notable for even a dragon, but there was hilarity abound.

EDIT:
Sir! Your attention please, this is urgent. After some research I have found a fatal flaw in your design. The cicada is cursed with an unusually large cockpit, making headshots on this slow variant a major problem. What we need is to reposition one of its flat, wide arms, over the cockpit itself. This way there will be a large blocking piece of armor to protect it. While this will severely limit visibility, we can overcome this with the ninja senses that all who recognize this variant's potential surely have.

Yes you could build this better with an Assault or Heavy, but the point is the other team seeing a cicada and thinking "awww, how cute" and ignoring it then....blamo!

Atlas falling over with incredulous look on pilot's face...priceless.

Also the Cicada possesses vastly superior kicking power to ward off predators when startled.

it should have a 100m jump, instead of jump jets...or at the very least, never take damage from falling down if it lands upright.

A mod needs to be made so that the Jeopardy song plays whenever you overheat.

You know how a good song can be completely ruined? The "Noisy Cricket" video demonstrates that it can go the other way, too. "Awright, dramatic technoviking time! PEW! Awright, teatime! Awright, doof-doof raver time again! PEW! Okay, now I need another break..." Exposed to that song any other way, I'd just hate it. This way, I can't get it out of my head!

I choked on myself with the soundtrack. What's the name and artist of the "F.T.W." song?
