So how do you farm components destroyed? Laserboating off legs and arms? I’ve completed all the objectives easily except for that one lol

Anything with lots of mgs will make open components disappear. Just hide behind your biggest friendly can opener and steal his beans.

I've done all of the objectives except for "shoot down 10 UAVs", since none of my mechs can look up.

I usually take my Scorch with 2x LB 20-X + 4x SRM-A or one of my 4x LB 10-X mechs and aim at side torsos. Blasting a fool with a Scorch alpha normally blows off some part of their mech. The LB 10 mechs tend to rack up components without even trying.

I use my ERLL Raven for that. I'm able to safely hang back under a nice ECM bubble, no one will notice if I'm ignoring the fight to farm UAVs, I've got the range to take out both mid-brawl and scouting UAVs, and I'm fast enough to reposition (keep up with the Nascar).

I need to do the kill UAV one still. I have a kit fox with a pair of ER large lasers and triple AMS, don't remember if it has ECM or not. Hang back and enjoy. I just need to get to it.

Anyone have a good loadout for the TBR-C(C)? I got one from an event who know how long ago and I'm still rolling with the stock loadout since I can't figure out anything I'm that happy with.

Timber isn't what it used to be. Try the 4xSRM4a + lb20 brawler. Season with lasers to taste.(srm+spl used to be okay, but then the nerf to spl happened) Keep in mind the -s torso's have hardlocked jumpjets and take up space and tonnage so they're not always the best option even though they have the most hardpoints.

If you like peek n poking the -A lt pod has 3 high placed mounts. LPL and ML's synch nicely. Two ppcs could be a thing if thats your preference.

Basic laser vomit is the best it can do: TBR-C

You need the Hero RT to fit the 6 ERMLs in, otherwise, you gotta go down to 5. It's not a good mech. The mounts on half the lasers are too low, the engine is too big, and there are half a dozen other Clan Heavies that run the loadout better. No reason to drive it other than it being an iconic chassis.

Someone blasted my KGC in the back today on the way out of spawn and it was the first time I had ever considered trying to TK someone. I think seeing him run by my 54kph mech at 100kph afterwards really triggered me

There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always— do not forget this, Winston— always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless.

Yep, 100% worth it. I've only played a few matches with it so far but it's a ton of fun. I kept the stock engine and didn't change anything other than armor and weapons.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6oiyJUQcgs

Going to remove the soundpack I have. It sounded okay in game when I recorded but I think there are a few other issues it's causing. Also for those of you that use Shadowplay, what's the best way to stop it from automatically setting the recording resolution to 720p? It always seems to go off the launcher size.

I always have to toggle shadow play off and back on once the game gets to the right resolution. If I alt tab out or otherwise leave the game, I have to remember to do it again.

Should report it to PGI, I think there is an API McCall they can make to get shadowplay to follow the game res if it changes.

I really love the rocket javelin, but if you care about tier or you just want to play the rest of the match out after your free rocket kill the Osiris is great for it.

Sometimes it doesn't quite one-shot the same way the javelin can but that's just down to picking the right target.

Dump an alpha into someone and then run around popping quirked and skilled AC/20 rounds at people.

Thanks. I alt-tab constantly so I'll try to remember that I need to reset it when I do so. I'm assuming if I report it to PGI they'll have it fixed sometime next year at the soonest.
