1. Thanks for all your efforts with rating recently! You have helped a lot with making this site more user-friendly! There are still many builds that have not received a single rating though, so if you see a build with no stars, you know what to do ;)!

    Not doing FP for the longest time. Payload mode sound interesting though.
    Weapon tweaks seem interesting.
    Marader IIC sound ok... isn't there a historical famous IIC?

    The Inner Sphere and Clan Gauss rifles have been nerfed to have their maximum range reduced to 1320 meters. Unbelievable. Clan Gauss also too squishy with 5 health and 100% explosion chance. Gauss rifles are much less viable now, IMO.

    Here are the stats, showing us that 2 AC2 is essentially better than Gauss on paper. So basically unless you only have 1 ballistic hardpoint free on your clan mech, you'll want to go with 2 AC2's now.

    I just don't understand these retarded developers.

    12 tons
    1320 max range - WTF
    2000 velocity
    1 heat
    5 health - WTF
    Explosion Chance increased to 100% (from 90%) - WTF

    5 tons
    1640 max range
    2000 velocity
    0.67 heat
    10 health

    10 health (a flamer has double the health of a Gauss rifle... WTF)

    I thought the new skills tree thing was going to be released with this patch? What is everybody's thoughts on the new quick play game mode. I can't make mind up my mind whether I like it or not. Still need to adapt my gameplay to it I suppose.

    I think they reduced the max range in preparation of the new escort mode, i can already see people trying to leg the Atlas VIP at the start for an easy win.

    Escort mode is a mess of people trying to figure it out right now. One of the big things is players are trying to play it like skirmish, seeking out weak points and nascaring to the back of the enemy formation. It doesn't work when you're going after the VIP. If you get behind the enemy, you can't get to the Atlas and a simple delaying action is all they need to win.

    Not sure about the new Escort Mode. Personally i would have had a Player controlled VIP Mech with Extended Command Functions.

    I remember reading years ago (literally years ago) that this game changes too often, pissing everybody off. I'm really amazed that after all this time, this is still the case and the game has been nerfed even more to make an AC2 a sniper weapon yet the Gauss a retarded fuck boy weapon

    I guess I have to reevaluate every build I have which features a Gauss rifle, now. I'm honestly very annoyed right now
