The timber wolf's agility has been crippled even more than most clan heavies. I would advise you stay away from the timbet wolf for now.

Consider the ebon jaguar or the warhawk trial mechs. They are available during this event and are pretty good loadoutwise.

Ebon jag will let you get a taste of clan lasers too. If you don't like clan lasers then you likely won't enjoy the hellbringer very much.

Just calling in to say that I clicked with the Ebon Jag and made enough to afford the Hellbringer. May have been able to make good with the assaults, but I don't think I could have handled the embarrassment of being nibbled down by a single Light, which was bad enough in the Jag.

I'm still ferociously bad, but I managed my first kill with a well placed Gauss shot last night.

Nice. I'm glad you are having fun. Getting good gauss shots is very fun.

And don't worry. Everyone gets murdered by a light sometimes.

Murdering multiple assaults as a Piranha is a right of passage. There really isn't any embarrassment to dying to most light mechs if you are an assault or heavy. If your team isn't there to help you, there is very little you can do.

The best advice I can give is to either stand still and turn, or walk backward and turn if a light is shooting your butt and hope you have weapons in your arms. You turn slower if you are walking forward. Spam the help voice line, and sometimes a light may come to your aid.

Edit: Or go in the discord and see if anyone is on. Having another player you can reach in voice helps a lot, and having goons play across multiple weight classes usually means you will get someone watching your back.
