Greetings MechWarriors!

As with everything, these updates are subject to further balance changes in the future, especially as more variables are brought into the equation with future updates and changes.

WEAPONS ADJUSTMENTS
As a continuation of our assessment of weapon performance since April, the following change has been made:

Clan Large Pulse laser:
  • Heat penalty multiplier increased to 4 (from 3)

This patch includes an increase in C-LPL heat penalty. This is mainly done to address the current situation where firing 4x C-LPLs are proving to be almost consequence-free when compared to the damage output potential.


EQUIPMENT ADJUSTMENTS

ECM
Currently, one of the shortcomings of ECM is its minimal effect (in terms of enemy radar detection range) versus its tonnage cost. To compensate for such a small effect, Mechs often need to spend a large number of skill nodes in order to bring their ECM to a baseline functionality. Considering the fact that mechs with ECM often get fewer performance enhancing quirks, this is particularly punishing to new players who choose their first ECM mech with no skill nodes unlocked. To improve upon this issue, this patch is shifting a portion of the ECM performance from the skill tree to the base stats of the ECM module.

ECM (Clan and IS):
  • Enemy radar range reduction increased to 50% (from 30%)

Skill Tree: Enhanced ECM Nodes
  • Enemy radar range reduction decreased to 12.5% (from 22.5%)


ENGINES
This patch includes a fix to the XL100 engine weight in order to make it consistent with the rest of the engine line up and with MWO mech construction rule set.

XL 100 Engine (Clan and IS):
  • Weight decreased to -0.5 tons (from 0.5)


MECH DEFAULT LOADOUT ADJUSTMENTS
This patch unlocks the fixed active probe on the Mist Lynx OmniMech. This change brings about more possible pod space on this chassis to allow it to utilize its hardpoints in a much better way.

Mist Lynx (All Variants):
  • Clan active probe is now unlocked and can be removed from head component


GAMEPLAY ADJUSTMENTS

Missile Hardpoint Doors
Missile doors in MechWarrior Online are one of the unique features only available on a limited number of mechs. Missile doors, when closed, offer extra durability in their associated components by providing a received damage reduction effect (currently 20%). While this is an interesting and useful feature, it’s implementation leaves quite a bit to be desired. Currently, closed missile doors introduce a long firing delay between every trigger press. This often creates confusion (mostly for new players) and has a detrimental effect on gameplay especially when used with short and medium ranged missiles, or cases when losing missile locks can be imminent. A workaround to eliminate this delay is currently opening the doors manually which turns off the damage reduction effect, and in some cases can give away your mech’s position through extended geometry.

In order to make this feature better suited to its purpose, this patch is eliminating the firing delay for missile doors. The missiles will fire immediately after trigger press and doors will open right away, and stay open for a second, before going back to a closed state. This will maintain the doors protective properties while eliminating the detrimental effect from gameplay. It is noted that during the limited time the doors are open when missiles are being fired, protective effects will be off, before doors are closed again.

The following mechs are affected by this change:
Stalker - Archer - Catapult - Dervish - Hellspawn - Kintaro

Changes:
  • Missile door firing delay changed to 0.0 (from 0.5)
  • Missile doors now stay open for 1.25 seconds after firing (from currently ~4 seconds on different mechs)


Faction Play Conquest Mode
  • Faction Play Conquest mode max score increased to 1750 (from 1250)


KNOWN ISSUES
  • We are aware of a few small visual/graphical glitches on the new HPG Manifold. These should not affect gameplay and will be fixed ASAP.


Patch Files (Direct Download)

To make the patching process easier for players with limited download caps, we'll be providing direct download links for the patch file(s) that comprise this patch. This will allow you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, for manual injection into the MWO patcher through a Patch Cache folder.

Aside from allowing you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, on another connection, there are no additional benefits to performing the patch this way; the patching process itself will be the same.

This direct patch download process will only work for players running the standalone client. It does not apply to players running MWO through Steam.
