I was a pour unable to even afford the monthly payments on a Commando. Then my good friend DeadlikeRev told me about how to shoot robits and get space bucks and now I am a successful internet grognard and own my own fleet of metches and am one of World of Lowtax's greatest enigmas!

I'm not convinced "enigma" is the right word.


Also, the Wizard is undergoing refit and is not available at this time. Roger. Copy.

I thought it was just tricking them into it (by referring to it as third person). Did they eventually crack down on people shouting DON'T PRESS ALT+F4 at the start of matches to get pubbies to disconnect?

That's correct, and if you look at the OP it does not in any way suggest that people should do this now, just that it has been done in the past.

As an aside, I have seen someone inform pubbies that "Pressing Alt-F4 closes the active window" and had that result in several disconnects, and I can't imagine that being against the CoC.

If you're not buying them to "collect" them and you actually care about things like "relative worth vs other mechs in the same weight class" then PB is a waste of money. It's an Awesome 8V with fewer and worse hardpoints and a bigger max engine size. If you long for the return of the Mawesome while also thinking the Mawesome was too good, go for it. In pugging/4 mans it's fine, but then so is literally every mech in the game as long as you're not filling it with machine gun ammo, stripping armour and crashing it into terrain until it explodes. In 8 mans it's pretty pointless.

Also it's more than $20 I think. The Marmoset is about $25 if I remember my maths correctly and it remains King Best Hero Mech. If you already have a marmoset, spend your MC on paint instead of the PB.

Ah, yeah, it'd be $30, give or take. Blech.



One further question, because I've apparently been gone this long. Camos and cockpit decor; per mech or per account?

Camos are either per mech (cheaper) or per chassis type (i.e. all your hunchbacks or all your cents or all your etc etc etc). The per chassis type is reusable, the single use version isn't, so if you paint your mech with the cheaper Urban Block, then if you repaint it with another camo you'll lose the urban block. If you have the expensive cross-chassis one, you don't lose it and it sits in your inventory. Paint is unlocked across all your mechs, so it's a one time purchase.

Cockpit decor is per account, but you only have as many as you buy. So my classy urbanmech bobblehead has to be moved from cockpit to cockpit if I want to see it all the time.

The whole point of stats are lost if you keep it a secret. Why Didn't you tell the world eh?

Cockpit items are just like any other item, you buy one, you can put it in a mech, pull it out of a mech, and put them in any mech. But if you want to put them in more than one mech at a time you need to have bought more the appropriate ammount.

Colours, I believe, are per account. If you pay the 1000MC you can put them on anything, as many times as you like.

Camos, come in two forms. First is a cheap single use form which is pretty self explanatory. Then there's a multi-use form, which lets you use that camo as many times as you want on that chassis type: i.e. if you pay for the multi-use camo on a catapult, you can use it on any catapult as many times as you want but you would need to buy it for your atlas if you wanted to use it there.

Anyway that's my understanding.

I do not recall saying you should fire any of the machine gun ammo. Actually putting guns on takes up tonnage and crits you should be using to fit more ammo in.

Just so you know: http://money.cnn.com/2013/02/10/new...s-mark-bourbon/ Going from 45% ABV to 42%. Believe me, I too am dismayed.

Also I guess that's a pretty nice OP and newbirds keep signing up because this game is still getting better as time goes on. Pick up groups in Mumble are still going strong and playing solo is not worth it. It's much better to play your first game in a goonlance and be able to ask questions from knowledgeable people right then and there (that can also win the game for you, too).

Seriously, if you want to play this game, you need to be playing it with goons. It's casual, fun, and easy to pick up and play (with goons) and you're more or less punching yourself in the dick if you play this game with pubbies.

Start a new life with the Power Girl Diet&trade. It worked for me!

I noticed one error in the first post. Under the atlas section for building, the line

quote:

...mind that the AC20 is in your right torso and SRMs in the right.
should be 'mind that the AC20 is in your right torso and SRMs in the left.'.


Also, I didn't see mention of the leg turning causing convergence issues. When pressing A or D to turn your legs, torso mounted weapons won't converge correctly. Always release those keys before firing torso mounted weapons, otherwise the shot may not go where the + is pointing.

Started playing again after a while (2 big patches maybe? I stopped before the spider) and I'm getting greatly improved FPS. One of the reasons I stopped was running lights was becoming unbearable, every patch making my FPS slightly worse like a slow slide down to hell. So I'm pleased, what did they fix or was it just "performance tweaks" in some patchnotes?

I don't think that we got specifics in the patch notes, but I can remember a few dev posts talking about things like the HUD having a big overhead and them cutting some of that down. The last patch really made things a lot better for a lot of people in that respect.
