    If you like Dragon's, you might just like this. But with only 4 tons of ammo, your going to have to use speed to your advantage.

    In about 6 matches, I haven't lost an arm yet, so I'd rather do this build using the A arm to put all the erml's together. I also cut some armor/.5t ammo just because I always feel the need to take a tc1.



    Def shaping up to be the 3rd place variant, but each one can't be a pure laser boat.

    4/5,
    Levelled up with LT's arm based version of this build and found it very solid even doing basics - using the ERML range/cooldown due to the ammo amounts. Will add the cooldown LB20X once mastered.

    5/5,
    Great 1-2 punch with the ERMLs followed up by the shotgun, had a lot of success, including a 4k game before it even had all basics:

    Getting mine through the elite states, with only full regular basics it is already getting nasty:

    This thing is a core ruiner if you roll in with 2-3 teammates. At the end, I had a 6 MPL firestarter picking at me, and still managed to down 2 TBRs and a LCT, then the Firestarter died, and their last guy/TBR managed to finally get my CT down. Ignore this build at your peril, for it almost makes me like the Gargoyle ;) (Video inc soon)

    Roll out! This is the best video I could get to show the power of this build. I die in the end, but I bring half a team with me.

    5/5,
    Undoubtedly the best Garygoyle build, however i prefer an Ultra AC-20 to the LBX-20.

    What about using two cMPLs and both GAR-Prime arms to double the LB-X quirks?



    or using an SRM to maintain the firepower rating?

    Your link's broken (not sure what that is, that string doesn't look like a smurphy string), but losing 12 firepower by going to MPLs only is too big of a trade for this build. The LBX20 is powerful, but its greatest ability is its crit potential on exposed components...by losing 2 ERMLs, you make it take that much longer to get past the armor, which means the LBX is not going to be as nasty as it could. The extra 10% cooldown means it could fire more, but you're still going to want the lasers to get the armor off that mech faster.

    5/5,
    Ok, good points. The firepower rating appears to only take alpha damage into account, but I think you're still right.

    Other than that, one can pick the GAR-D CT for faster acceleration/deceleration or the GAR-A for slightly better turning.

    Use ERSL for higher damage up close. You like it up close, right?

    Yeah, this mech still GOES man. Pulled it out in a Stream, and never did under 400 damage with 2-4 kills XD
