Re: HBS BattleTech - Five Days In

Okay, an actual strategy post, specifically about the business side of the campaign: Having put a disgusting amount of time into the single-player campaign, I'm starting to think that the Argo is a white elephant. At the very least, if you indiscriminantly buy all the upgrades, the ship will become ...

HBS BattleTech - Five Days In

Did I take time off for the BattleTech release? https://i.imgur.com/i7ScRuW.png Yes. I might have missed out on some sleep too. By way of a review: I regret nothing. By way of a deep strategy post: Find a pilot with the sassy, Russian-accented voice actress and hire her immediately. She's got some g...

Cauldron Born

I wasn't going to write a build post this month. I wasn't going to do it. But I'm weak. I was sitting on ~25 million C-bills, and there were Cauldron Born builds already rolling around in my head. Now, I've got two of the things and enough builds to talk about the chassis. If you're looking to make ...

Six Legs Short

What kind of doofus names a mech Sun Spider and only gives it two legs? :rolleyes: I've been hyping up the Sun Spider for a little while now, and it's largely living up to expectations. It has very large side torso hitboxes and only tiny arms with which to shield the sides, so it can feel a little e...

Of course, you can't just do a ...

Thoughts of the Moment

So I've been slowly redeveloping the itch for mech violence. (It's like a rash.... I'd see a dermatologist, but I don't have health insurance that will cover that at my age.) I'm not ready for a proper return to MWO yet, but I've got a free mech coming in March that will fill a hole in my Clan CW dr...

The Sale has me Thinking....

Before I start in earnest, some context: Since the Founders packs went on sale, back in 2011/2012, I've spent $495 on MWO. I took a hiatus during the open beta period, but from 2013 through 2015, I was a pretty steady spender. That's not a brag. If anything, I feel like a sucker for having put that ...

Queue Jumper

The Linebacker doesn't have a separate Inner Sphere name, but if it did, I think that Queue Jumper would be appropriate. It's big and fast and can just muscle its way around, where ever it wants to go. That makes for a rude person but a great omnimech. General Notes I've mentioned in the past that a...
