    This is where you post those wonderful cringe build you see.
    Funny they seem to be a bit less common nowadays.

    Remember, we are making fun of builds, not players.

    The good ones I find recently

    The engine size and ammo count is a guess, it is quite fast so I suspect a stock cXL315. But he may be smart enough for an engine swap, or even cXL255?
    Either way it is sad to see a J IIC turning into a missile turret.


    Engine size is a guess, but weapons are real.

    Ohhh, nice idea. Here's something I saw yesterday.. the exact amounts of armor, ammo and heatsinks are a guess, but the weaponry and speed are, sadly, not.

    You can't launch a mech with only 8 heat sinks. Upgrade to endosteel, swap for an XL engine, and you should have your build.

    I must confess my soft heart for LRM lights. What make me cringe about this Locust is not the weapons, but the speed. Because lurming at 150kph is AWESOME! Try it! I plead guilty, I tried them all, from the LRM5 Locust to the double LRM20 Huginn.
    Same for this 6 LRM5 Jenner I saw few days ago, it's more of a troll build than a cringe-worthy build.

    Ah yes, my bad. As I said, just a guess. But yeah I definitely saw him running around at only 81 kph. Painful to watch.

    Probably something along the lines of "Yay! Heat neutrality!!"

    6xLRM5 Jenner is kind of fun to mess around in.

    I found a few last night, and now that my account has finally been approved, I can share 'em!

    Shoutout to Final Caesura for complaining that this Raven wasn't flying quite right...

    @SkiDog Thank you, thank you. I've got many a build to share, including my own Misery setup which is cringeworthy by all your standards. Fun, but only if you like five fire groups... with each having it's own weapon. Might share some of 'em soon enough.

    There is always room for improvement. Takes us quite a while sometimes to cook up those perfect meta builds. :)

    Funnily enough... I haven't actually modified it since I did that build on it. I'm aware that it takes a while, I just set a build and master a mech with that... and then normally leave it like that. I'm actually a lot better than the build will indicate - gimme a sec, I'll grab the actual setup for you to gasp in horror at.

    There it is, in all it's cringe-worthy glory. Despite the build, it's still managed to amass 114 kills since I got it and set it up like this, including 62 after being fully mastered.

    Fire group setup:

    1: ER PPCs (Chainfire)
    2: UAC
    3: MPLs (Chainfire)
    4: ER Large Laser
    5: SRM 6

    Would do your build this way instead.


    Faster, SRM4 being more accurate, and reduce heat problem with ERLL. You can replace with 3x LL if you like shorter ranges though.

    Let me guess... STD engine?
    Remember the good old days with repair cost, I was running something like that with commando... good for digging cbills...

    Anyhow it takes some skill to be worse than stock, really. Oh and for the first time in forever I don't even know what to do with the extra tonnage in a locust...

    I don't think you can assume FF and ES. Or even DHS. With a standard engine, the guy might just be going as cheap as possible.
