Yeah, the best part is more often than not you don't need to say a single word and some people will rage. It is a silent troll. I have had people call me all sorts of names, murderer, hell one guy accused me of being space Hitler. The hard core clan sperg lords challenge me to honor duels saying I soil the game by using such a vulgar name on the honorable Kerensky name.

I always tell people who give me poo poo that I rightfully earned my Kerensky blood name in a Trial of Molestation. If they want to challenge me we can meet in a public restroom and fondle each other until we have a winner. Needless to say it does not blow over too well.

By far the funniest thing is pubbies rationalising their poo poo fits when you question them. Especially machineguns, there is no logic behind carrying a weapon with such terrible dps and such dangerous ammo.

It is only surpassed by the gun that floods the enemy cockpit with fart smell. Why do damage to the giant death machine that is trying to kill you, when you can briefly annoy it instead?

This doesn't stop running a Flamer Hunchback from being a drat funny time. I might be doing poo poo for damage while I run in circles around big, clumsy assault mechs, but I'm having a hilarious time while I do it. (And pubbies are stupid enough that you stand a non-zero chance of cooking off someone's MG ammo and blowing them to hell and gone. I await that fateful day.)

I use this. Its stupid fun, as people seem to ignore you as AC2s are crap. Yet its crap that lets you never stop shooting, putting 400+ rounds into enemy mechs. Not a serious bot, but it is fun.

Running Flame Lance is always good times.

Running with pubs is just plain silly. Though honestly, trying out hilariously ineffective builds like the Flammando or 4MG/1ERPPC Cicada can force you to become a better pilot.

For a while in closed beta, during the summer, flamers were absolutely overpowered and generated no heat for the mech using them. You could go up to a mech and then overheat it and keep it overheated indefinitely. Jenners would dominate anything but other Jenners and Atlases were worthless. This was also when Atlases had huge headboxes so a few volleys of LRMs would kill an Atlas reliably.

The OP (post 1) is still talking about release schedule, closed beta etc. as if that was something going to happen in the future. Maybe shorten that part down to "game was first announced on <date>, a closed beta started on <other date> and on <date again> the game entered open beta."

(I need to start playing again.)

To be fair, he was basically in his own kung-fu movie where the mooks streamed in one at a time and in the end, he killed 6 guys. Then they made flamers bad.

Pretty sure that the point being made is you need to be a real goon and actually post enough to be part of SA community, rather than just trying to join MWO. If you can't make a post more often than 3 out of 10 days in an 8 month period, you probably haven't accomplished that.
