    mechwarrior 5 sucks

    • 12 months ago
      Anonymous

      "You will never be a Battlemech Merc. You have no mechs, you have no PPCs, you have no Double Heat Sinks. You are a russian thug twisted by vodka and snow into a crude mockery of Mechwarrior's perfection. All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back Putin mocks you. The Oligarchs are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “countrymen” laugh at your mobiks operating frames to pretend they are mechs behind closed doors. Mech fans are utterly repulsed by you. Years of Battletech have allowed people to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even teams of mobiks using giant cardboard mock models look uncanny and unnatural to a man. Your lack of myomer is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a vatnik to hire you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your diseased, infected prison recruits instead of a fusion reactor. You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, soon mighty Russia will have real battlemechs, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight. Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll order a drone operator to drop a grenade over you and plunge into the cold abyss. Putin will find you, actually relieved that Russia no longer has to live with the unbearable shame and annoyance. They’ll bury you with a headstone without any mechwarrior designation, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know an ordinary mob boss is buried there. Your "volunteers" will rot away and go back to the dust, and all that will remain are skeletons and rusted frames which are clearly not mechs."

      Yet Another Mechlab and such things do a fantastic job of giving the game the extra bit of customization it should have had.

      I feel like what sucks the most is just how dumb the AI are. Even with mods they're so stupid. Really drags you out of the game. Wanted to try coop only to find out it requires a direct invite... gay.

      What the frick did you just fricking say about me, you little surat? I will have you know I graduated top of my sibko with 3 confirmed kills in my trial of position, I have been involved in numerous trials of possession, and I have over 4 trinaries worth of confirmed kills in Operation Revival. I am trained in zellbrigen and I am the best mechwarrior in the entire Jade Falcon touman. You are nothing to me but just another freebirth. I will wipe you the frick out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before, mark my fricking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the HPGnet? Think again, trashborn. As we speak I am contacting the clan watch spies across the invasion corridor and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, savashri. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You are fricking dead, eyass. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that is just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in elemental combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the heirs of Kerensky and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your chalcas ass off the face of the Inner Sphere, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy batchall your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fricking tongue. But you could not, you did not, and now you are paying the price, you dezgra idiot. I will shit ATMs all over you and you will drown in it. You are fricking dead, stravag.

                It has a RAC/5 build that's very good for the weight class because the narrow CT/ST hitboxes let you spread damage very effeciently. As far as mediums go it's somewhat common for that reason.

            I don't really have one. I like most Mechs and think that almost all of them have a good reason and niche they fill. I mean, even the OG Charger does. Okay, it's niche is graft. But still.

            Closest is probably pic relevant. I just find it funny that GM found out that trying to build a Clan Omni without Clantech doesn't work. Also its later variants actually are pretty good in their own right, if expensive.

          The way unity and Battletech function is a bit of a shit show. It's constantly pulling data from the hdd even between button presses and turn calculations. So if you're running that game of anything but an nvme hard disk then it's going to run like shit no matter what. With mods the issue is exacerbated massively because the jank ass game will have to parse through potentially a dozen or more GB of extra content between most of it's in game actions. Resulting in hitching and mini-lock ups almost constantly.

YAML, coyotes mission pack, the AI fix, various graphical improvements. You can tweak the sandbox campaign to your liking.

        I dunno what you mean by that but for mods I'd say the essentials are
        VonBiomes,
        VonHUD (because it allows you to switch to a top-down view to command your lance),
        the YAML suite,
        TTrulez AI mod,
        career mode customization,
        Most people like Coyote Missions
        Plus whatever visual mods you prefer and your PC can handle, most actually aren't that much more demanding than the base game because they just unfrick the bad optimization and artistic choices PGI made in the base game

        I also use a mod that disables artillery because the way it's implemented makes no sense and is annoying af

          The troony drama was buried and done long before BLP got himself dumped. In fact, I think the tyranny came out and admitted he was just a straight man pretending to be a lesbian for clout before BLP got fired. The number of people BLP has had very public slap fights with was the problem. Critics of his work would get long aggressive rants trying to discredit them no matter how merited their criticisms were. It's not a good look for the holding company that actually owns the brand. Also he was a freelancer, they didn't actually "fire" him, they just declined to continue hiring him.

          Functionally things seem to be mostly working, but the early missions are completely impossible under the new rules due to merchtech giving vehicles a large boost. The manticore in the first mission was a brick wall to a lot of testers for a long time

            Seen this one too. Playing lights with high ping is generally extremely fricky.

            And accidently did this one myself.
            I mean, MWO is not a zero sum game like Tarkov (which has even worse netcode) or something, so it is not that big of a deal, but it is still very annoying. When I was sniping with my dual gauss Thanatos, I've seen the rounds going through the model without doing any damage a bit too often to my taste. This is especially problem with arms and legs. I blame desync.

            Shnoz allows excellent damage spread with minimum twist. Nose stays close to pointing at target while not having to loose sight of the target.

            But really what you are doing is finding a corner or a ramp to damage dump the UAC-20 and Heavy Peep alphas as fast as they can cycle and dip back into cover. 70pts of near pinpoint damage. Oh, and its asymetric so you get a shield side. Misery rocks at brawl.

              Man, UAC20 or AC20 makes my peepee feel very good, but I can put one on a Centurion (with 3x SRMs) and do pretty good alpha too, WHILE being 90 speedy boi. I would say LPL Fatlas is even better brawler. But yeah, those hitboxes with Stalker do look great.

        Neither in lore or any game is the Stalker squishy. In MWO it is easily among the hardest mechs to put down. In lore, two of them go dowm swinging taking out the better part of a clan galaxy with them.

        That’s the Stone Rhino, a clan assault mech. It’s insanely lethal and at 100 tons the heaviest a mech can be in the setting and still be practical. It has a pair of Gauss Rifles that can remove heads from mechs at long range, and two clan large pulse lasers, which are ton for ton the most efficiently lethal weapons in the setting, combining good damage, superb accuracy and manageable heat generation together in one package, there’s also a small pulse laser for knife fighting ranges and telling infantry to frick off and die. It has 18 tons of armor, and jump jets too. Only downside is that for a clan assault mech, on the slow side - which means it matches standard IS speeds. It can also get a bit toasty if you jump and fire both large pulse lasers plus your rifles, but simply either picking to fire the large pulse lasers only when standing still or going with a 2-1-2 firing pattern with them means it can manage the heat load well since it’s a clan mech with double heat sinks. Extremely dangerous, but much less so once the Gauss Rifle ammo runs dry.

      There are: reactive (Blazer) armor is invented by the snakes in 3063. It cuts physical damage in half, but runs the risk of catastrophic failure. There's also Ballistic-Reinforced armor from the Dark Ages, if you care about that time period.

      >ERA

      Most weapons would make ERA a liability in Battletech, as most damage is directed energy or heavy mass which completely ignores the mitigation from reactive armor and just would add tonnage which is the greatest sin in Battletech.

          the only semi plausible way I can think of making battletechs magical ablative armor real is making a composite armor system consisting of powerful electric reactive armor, conventional armor, and actual real life heat ablatives nasa uses on their reentry vehicles all sandwiched together in that order with several repeating layers.

      It definitely had the best intro cutscene. For gameplay, though, it's really hard to top the "Overlord" mission from MW4:M. Your lance plus 2-3 lances of allied NPCs has to fight through a full battalion or more of enemy mechs. You get to watch an Overlord losing thrust in mid-air and plummeting into the ground. Enemies just keep coming, and they're mostly Steiner Scout Lances. It's completely nuts.

        MWOgays, hows my boy Uziel? Does it stack up at least a little?

        Since the reworks Uziel's been pretty good, some variants have gotten really strong quirks but the issue is Uziels body itself, the arm mounts are really risky and like anon said convergence kinda sucks. So the versions with strong ass perks like 3P and 2S are really still sort of risky builds. That said overall Uziels are still fairly solid.

        One of my most played machines is the UZI-6P, because she's got upper mounted torso energy slots. Which means you can use her as a sniper with ease and usually put up pretty well. I run a simple 3 medium laser, 1 heavy ppc on the 6P and just run around legging lights, or plinking bigger guys from the rear line and I usually do ok. I'm pretty shit at the game in general but i've maintained about a 1.23 win ratio with it after nearly 20 hours of gametime

                They've rebuilt their touman from the ground up twice already. They've literally come back from the status the JF are in right now (reduced to a special force of the Wolves) to rise to the top again.

People try to claim Alaric and Clan Wolf are Mary Sues, but really they're just ambitious and they earned what they wanted (Terra), and now have to deal with the consequences of how much that weakened their Clan. Sooner or later some event is going to expose how wounded they are and put the Wolves in a survival fight. Anyhow, I suspect the Wolf/BLP haters are just trannies and/or filthy Capellans.

                that just feels like bad resource management
                they wanted an inter-clan conflict so they have the wolf/falcon refusal
                wolf in exile is created out of it, probably to give a clan tech boost to the eventual inner sphere counterattack
                and then... nope, thats it they're not doing anything else
                same goes for the dragoons
                they introduce this 5 regiment strong merc force and then they never do anything
                at minimum their involvement in the clan invasion should have been more prominent, which would prompt a strong reaction from the clans, and this ought to have resulted in significant losses for them
                instead of spending the 3050s and 60s twiddling their thumbs

                It was poorly written, largely as a consequence of the death of FASA and the WizKids clickytech era. We went directly from 3067 to 3130 in a timeskip that handwaved lots of stuff and crammed far too many events into far too short a time period. When clickytech failed and CGL took over, they had to deal with making the Jihad make sense without retconning all of the stuff mentioned in the clickytech era.

                The Jihad needed to be spread out over a longer period, with more political and military maneuvering, and less Idiot Balls For Everyone. WoB got a massive army out of practically nowhere (at least their navy was somewhat legit), and somehow nobody figured out that they were behind all of the strife being caused for several years, despite them, I dunno, orbital bombarding Tharkad and New Avalon under their true colors at the very beginning of the Jihad. And the Successor States kept assuming that each other were behind the mysterious attacks and betrayals, and not the mustache-twirling villain?

                Start the Jihad slowly and quietly, spread the whole thing out until 3090ish, let it build up naturally, and you've got a much more believable story.

      Because it hasn't, and never will. It was once a peer competitor with 40K, has a storyline rivalling Dune and Star Wars in scope and content, a hundred novels, is so iconic that people recognise a Timber Wolf despite never having heard its name or the phrase "Battletech", and is practically the founding father of original American mecha design.

      But the IP has been criminally mismanaged to the ground, and it doesn't look like it'll get any better ever. So much for that.

    Then what is the point of Ultra Autocannons? If your ACWhatever achieves it damage by firing multiple shells rapidly (800-1000RPM) why not use those instead of the more expensive and jam prone UAC's?
    >AC damage per ton
    Autocannons really need a ammo per ton boost, when a AC10 only gets 15 rounds per ton and has to face the absolute devastation of ammo explosions there's a reason why everyone goes laserboat. Lasers and other energy builds should be situational, not as a general solution for the game. Autocannon builds should be more viable, along with mixed armament builds, enough with this "boating" bullshit.

        I actually quite like MWO's (and MW5) approach to balancing laser (and pulse laser) damage. Ghost heat can die in a fire though.
        I wonder how players would react if MechWarrior as a series implemented more dynamic piloting as depicted in lore, things like crouching/going prone to take cover, slipping on rough terrain, bracing for weapon impacts, active melee combat, etc. as opposed to the literal tank with legs gameplay that it has been historically.
        War Thunder style armor penetration and subsystem damage could be interesting too. One of the supposed big advantages mechs have over conventional vehicles is that their critical components are spaced out within their structure and unlikely to all be destroyed at once. Imagine having to strip pixel perfect ablative armor all over a mech (not just per broad hit component), and then penetrating shots damaging components being physically implemented with a bunch of dead space structure inside that could contribute to structural failure (whole limb/torso section comes off) but the critical components and subsystems function unless directly hit.

      Without double heat sinks, auto cannons have more of a role. When having more that 12 heat sinks on a mech is a rarity, being able to sling 10 damage downrange for only 3 heat is worth the ammo explosions. Lostech kinda screws around with game balance.

      • 11 months ago
        Anonymous

        Lostech is fine if there is an extra strategic layer to it, e.g. in campaign play where you will find 1 IS-era weapon, or scrounge together enough supplies to maintain 1 mech with double heatsinks.

        • 11 months ago
          Anonymous

          Double heat sinks turn some mechs into absolute monsters. DHS on a Marauder allows for you to drop two sinks, add another two tons of armor, and still be almost heat neutral. DHS on a Warhammer creates a nasty mech if you ditch a sink or two for armor, while on an Awesome allows you to go down to say, 16 DHS and throw the rest into medium lasers for when someone decides they want to get under three PPC’s minimum range, at which point they eat an absolute frickton of pew-pew.

          • 11 months ago
            Anonymous

            Just did some theory work on that awesome. 16 DHS allows for a spare Large Laser plus 7 medium lasers, creating an absolute disco death mode up close, or a pair of large lasers and medium lasers for close in backup. Alternatively you can just make the Awesome a 4/6 mech, which is kind of fricking terrifying - imagine a 4/6 mech with 15 tons of armor and a trio of standard PPC’s that doesn’t need to ever stop firing them. Alternatively you can add a fourth PPC, 18 double heat sinks and a trio of medium lasers and keep it a 3/5, just one that has a decent punch up close and a 4/3/4 ppc firing pattern.

              Not much reason to make an awesome 4/6, it's the apex turret mech, anything that wants to shoot it has to expose itself to fire or get around its rear, improving its speed won't help much besides the ability to backpedal faster.

                I guess my point was that the PB is so good also because of its speed, which allows it to hunt lights and mediums and trade really effectively with anything heavier. There is this sweet spot with playing it aggressively that can give you some good results.
                >rotato potato
                I hate it. Why do people keep doing it, especially since there is absolutely no rational reason to do it. Like there are morons who rotate/nascar even though they are getting btfo'd from the enemy already.

                >absolutely no rational reason
                There is unfortunately plenty of rational reasons to do it. Aggressive players leading the rotation get to flank and tend to get big damage/kills/score/SR off the enemy. Since the enemy team is doing the same, the mechs that get left behind are easy targets for the flankers, and the flankers don't suffer the consequences of being left behind and outnumbered and eaten. They are individually highly incentivized to play this way, even if through the course of the game, their team gets eaten up faster and they lose. The aggressive players will often get enough score that even when they lose, they aren't suffering major SR penalties because their aggression is recorded as high performance relative to their team anyways.
                I'm not sure what the solution is. I'm inclined to blame objective design combined with a relatively low skill and low knowledge player base (lots of mechdads out there who simply don't give a shit), which means low organization and little ability to convince the team when you want to coordinate. Lots of maps have good holding points outside of the rotato center feature, but teams tend not to use them. Objective modes that intentionally spread the team to force more smaller scale skirmishes could help. Conquest is 100% the best mode because of this, no matter how much the fatties complain about having to walk.

      Modern guns would be designated as 'rifles' in Battletech balance calculations. Also going by bore size is really iffy; the Marauder's AC/5 is a three-round-burst of 120mm.

        yeah AC/5/10/20 are in universe generic terms for weapons that do a specific amount of damage "per turn". Some AC10's will be a rotary 30mm cannon, a 120mm low velocity hesh thrower, a high velocity 90mm gun, etc. There is no single caliber taken into account for AC class weapons, only the damage they do per turn. Lets lore writers have more fun with fluff that way and keeps gameplay simplified.

            Ultra/Rotary fire *even faster*. Rotary also is always depicted in art as being large and multi-barrel (a giant Gatling).
            >why can you buy AC ammo everywhere
            A/C ammo is also low-tech, and can be readily produced even by most frontier worlds. Planets that have trouble maintaining battlemechs can still run tanks armed with A/Cs and a few missiles, plus the occasional energy weapon. Now, a frontier world isn't going to produce enough ammo to keep a RCT supplied, but it can probably support a lance or two.

            >uac's and ultras fire even faster
            So Rotery Autocannons and Ultra Autocannons have fire rates that are 1500-3000 RPM? How do mechs even remain standing at this point? To me this is a lot of mental gymnastics while the easiest answer is that regular autocannons are single shot, while ultra autocannons are scaled up ARES autocannons and rotery guns are just that.
            >AC2
            20-50mm, best for aircraft and light targets.
            >AC5
            75-90mm, long range and multirole.
            >AC10

          Inbreeding. Aidan Pryde's sibmate (clone sister) deliberately sleeps with him with the intention of getting knocked up because she washed out to the scientist caste and can edit genetic defects out of the child. Aidans daughter drops on Tukayyid with him and witnesses his last stand within the same moments she learns she's his daughter. Clanners have basically no incest taboo at least among the warrior caste, but that was a step further even for them.

        These are my favorites. BoK I must have re-read like six times. Also I can't remember if it's BoK or the jade phoenix stuff that has all the HOT sex scenes, but those were very titillating to me as a 13 year old nerd and that probably started me down the path of being attracted exclusively to very capable women

      ComStar is my favorite "purveyors of lost technology" faction in sci-fi
      the shit that the ComGuard did on Tukayyid was hilarious, literally tricking the Clans into getting obliterated after they rampaged through hundreds of worlds. the parts in the books where the elementals are getting schwacked with artillery and they're like "Nooooo! This is illegal!!" are great

        It's actually the opposite, ComStar declared all of it's assets and capabilities and the Clans agreed anyway, forcing them to commit and agree with everything ComStar wagered, which was exactly the point.

      They weren't superior in logistics, common sense, keeping their egos in check, and (related to that ego thing) recognizing that the clan forced to do most of the heavy lifting against its own political will might not have the best interests of the invasion in mind. Clan Wolf was basically bullied into the invasion and then intentionally rushed it to force the other clans to also rush or else lose face. This caused them multiple frickups, and some of their biggest advantages were intentionally bid away by Clan Wolf, and since one clan bid them away, all of the clans had to bid them away or else they'd be pussies who can't win on sheer skill.

        Entire invasion is dependent on the Intel brought almost singlehandedly by Wolf intelligence (which, they are pretty much the only Clan with an intelligence arm anyways), but they are supposed to share all of that with the others?
        Wolf Dragoons could have taken a vacation trip to Earth from the start and claim the win.

        The logistic meme is pushed, Clans had infinitely better logistics than Spheroids outside of specific ground engagements, simply due to how much larger their fleet was. Its only in large scale ground battles in developped systems that spheroid logistics win. And obviously, Tukayyid.

          LMAO, no. The whole damn invasion was essentially dependent on what they could load onto their ships for one trip. (The SLDF designing their WarShips to serve as mobile depots with gigantic cargo holds was the only thing that even made the whole attempt possible.) Exodus Road was such a bottleneck that the whole thing was on a timer from the start.

          The Feddies and Snakes could lose whole regiments and then just rebuild them and throw 'em back into the fray again. The invading Clans? Every man, every Mech, every autocannon shell and armor panel that was used up was effectively irreplaceable in any timely manner. The moment engagements turned from one-sided blowouts into attritional contests the whole damn invasion was doomed.

                A Warship is a logistic line on it's own. It has more cargo space than just about any other ship out there, including cargo haulers.
                There were dozens of SLDF caches used as resupply points/staging grounds. That was the Dragoons and Wolfnet's doing.
                Sure the Exodus road is a long bottleneck but the simple comparison between The Clan Invasion and Bulldog should fricking show you how much better Clan logistic was.

                It's not. It's a depot. Depots are finite. The Clans tried to wage an invasion with their industrial base months upon months of travel away from the frontline and nowhere near enough shipping capacity to establish a permanent supply line. What they brought in the initial push in their fleet's holds was effectively what they had to fight with, because the trickle coming down the invasion route after that was little more than a rounding error and utterly insufficient to keep up high-intensity operations.

                And yes, the logistical masterstroke that was the preparations for Bulldog - which led to unqualified success in all of the operations's goals - does stand in stark contrast to the shoddy and insufficient logistical planning and hopeless optimism of Revival that doomed the invasion before it had ever begun.

                Inner Sphere logistics allowed them to rebuild their forces and wage a victorious war of attrittion against the Clans. Clan logistics left them incapable of keeping up with that very same war of attrition. QED.

                Ffs just the fact that most military regiments of the IS cannot jump systems on their own and have to rely to merchant ships kills the whole idea of IS logistical superiority.

                Gee, of which the IS has orders of magnitude more than the Clans. Which allows them to utterly outperform the Clans at logistics in every way relevant.

                The undiputable fact of IS logistical superiority over the Clans is proven by little more than a single look at the actual numbers of troops in the field, logistical throughput capability and industrial prouction capabilities in play, all of which the IS utterly outmatches the Clanners in. When the other side can bring an RCT for every battalion of yours while you're stretching your logistics beyond their limit, your logistics are just plain objectively inferior.

                Trashborn larpers play at being "warriors" in their LARP trials. IS soldiers win wars. And REVIVAL was never anything but a delusional pipedream based on the Clanners overdosing on their own kool-aid. Deal with it.

      Spheroids learned enough of clanners ways to lure them into an ill-defined honour battle which would alone determine who would win. Spheroids the proceeded to use dishohourable tactics like using logistics, artillery and terraforming the whole goddamn planet to get enough small tactical advantages as to pretty much guarantee a win. Wolves won their part because they always had more logistics/intel than other Clans. Bears negotiated themselves a win because they wouldnt quit fighting or accept to die, so the Spheroids offered them victory if they accepted to end the fight, thus freeing troops to send after others. Falcons got the brunt of those and got carried by Aiden Pryde being there, and argued for a draw, since both sides lost so many. Since all the other Clans lost, Falcons were granted their draw.
      Wolves forced the other Clans to accept the result, which essentially meant that all the other Clans made them target #1, ultimately leading to the Refusal War.

    I think it's not unreasonable to say that Clanners are OK at logistics, but the nature of the invasion meant that they had to pack a LOT of supplies for one big run. They simply didn't pack enough supplies in the same way they didn't pack enough troops, they vastly underestimated the Inner Sphere. Saying that they're better than the IS at logistics is taking a look at a feat that the IS has never had to attempt but the Clans planned to do for hundreds of years (invading from the deep periphery), pointing at it, and claiming based on nothing that the IS could never do something like that.

        As shown by them running into the limits of their logistics capability while supporting a military that is dwarfed by even the CCAF.

        >muh Warships

        The average Clanner WarShip could be able to transport twenty times as much as an Invader with a couple Mules (it doesn't btw, it's closer to 4x; and let's not evne talk about bigger cargo haulers than the Mule), and that still leaves the Clans with orders and orders of magnitude LESS hauling capacity than the IS.

        Having a dozen supertankers doesn't mean you're suddenly better off than the guy running a fleet of hundreds of Liberty Ships.

        >They had a supply line.

        A supply line implies a logistics network capable of CONTINOUS THROUGHPUT. And the supply line down the invasion route was utterly pathetic and insufficient for what it was supposed to supply. One big load taken along on the way in doesn't change that. Everyone can spend years and years to amass one big starting stockpile. Real logistical strength is in being able to keep flooding in more materiel even after your initial built-up stockpile is running low in the face of continous attrition.

        By your definition of it, Imperial Japan had marvelously great logistics in the Pacific War. LMAO.

        >The undiputable fact of IS logistical superiority over the Clans is proven by little more than a single look at the actual numbers of troops in the field

        LMAO. Both incorrect and not even trying to actually adress the point anymore. PS: The invasion was dead long before Tukkayid. All the phone company did was make it end with a bang instead of a whimper.

        And yet that IS invasion succeeded utterly, while REVIVAL not only failed utterly, but was doomed to fail utterly before the first shot was ever fired.

        SERPENT for all its imeprfections showed nigh-infinitely greater operational and logistics planning skill, unity of command, sound decision-making and choice of goals and just all-around strategic competence than the clownshow that was REVIVAL.
