    Guess I'll go ahead and start this. Don't forget to describe or post what build it was with, as well as whether or not you used any Art/Air Strikes. ;)

    Got this one tonight. My first 1000+ so far in a Banshee, and it was without any Arty- or Air-Strikes, or any other type of consumable. I barely made it past the mark before I died, but I did make it! And it was enough to get me my last Basic for the 'Mech too! :rofl:

    I know there's some even better scores out there already, so let's see 'em! :cool:

    wow, first Banshee, still not even elited and already 1K+. Damn this Mech is awesome!

    [​IMG]

    (2x AC5, 1x AC2, 1x LLas, 2x MLas)


    Unfortunately we lost, because they used endless Arties.. damn suckers! But at least at the end i could take down their 1K+ Guy 1v1 close range - Zombiemode with a Headlaser! :rofl:, before i was cored from behind.

    Every single one of these is a 3E. :mellow:

    Protoform, that is a very good point, which has not escaped me either. THIS MUST BE CHANGED!

    Got a 3M build I think should be able to take it; had a run in it the other day and got just under 800, with no strikes involved. I will have to run it more regularly, as I'm certain it has the potential to make 1000; it just needs the opportunity. ;)

    Gave up on my 3M :mellow:
    Basics then sold... couldn't get into a good groove with it or find a build I liked... my BLR-1G does nearly everything the BNC-3M can, so it's a redundant mech for me at least. Maybe I'll revisit some day, but no day soon. Too many other mechs to get into. BNC-3S might be the next to go :( but i'm giving that one more time.

    Honestly, there is no comparison of efficiency when comparing ballistic weapons to anything else. That's why it's so easy to see 1000+ games with the 3E. It's also why the most effective heavies and assaults usually have at least 2 ballistic slots...

    Yeap, I haven't finished my Basics on the 3M yet, but it will likely be shitcanned as soon as I'm done. I'll probably get rid of the 3S if and when I need the mechbay, though the addition of the free mechbay last weekend has delayed its execution for a while.

    Decided to play a quick game before heading to work this morning, running the BNC-3E AC5 Punch build (2x LLas, 3x AC5, STD325)

    [​IMG]

    Was only carrying 7 tons of ammo, and ran out way before the end. Died trying to hold off a BNC-3S and BNC-3M with my remaining 2 LLas.

    Ok, someone complained about only 3Es being present here ;)
    This happened while leveling up my 3S
    No consumables used, just Imp. Seismic and Target Decay.

    Very well done Neograf! I was considering a similar build to that as well

    3E Banshee is a great mech to run; here's one of my many 1000+ matches. Note the PGI kill, strangely satisfying:


    [​IMG]



    Standard AC5 Punch build (3xAC5,210 ammo,2x LL) No consumables.

    Was a good match, though our team lacked a bit in weight (trial Victors don't count). I used one arty, but no other consumables.

    I know, most people think STD300 is too slow, but it does work. The PUGs were so scared, I ended up sitting on the front lines of our team anyway!

    Another good run in the 3E: 2xAC5, 2xAC2, and 4xMLas, with a STD300. No strikes, no coolant --- though advanced-seismic came in handy. :)

    [​IMG]

    Here's a video of the match. 'Twas a good one, though I tended to use my Lasers a bit too often, thus wasting precious heat! :)

    Another one in the 3xAC5 + 2xLLas. Can't afford consumables since I still have to save up for the BNC-3S.

    [​IMG]

    Somehow survived with no ammo and only one leg against an almost cored Stalker (dark orange CT armor), a nearly fresh Cataphract 3D (mostly yellow and orange armor), and a cored Victor (bright red CT internals). I think the Phract was trying to leg me but kept hitting my destroyed leg.

    had no fun to level this chassis because imho only the 3E is a real killer machine. But this mech and config is one of my absolute favorites now. No consumables - just pure manual devastation:

    XL380, 3AC2, LBX, 2ML, AMS

    See you on the battlefield!
