I made an interesting Nova build that I'm doing way better in matches than I thought I would. It's just a swapping of lasers, and keeps the 4x MGun build in check. 2 LLs and 2 MLs. Work the perks and get those Elite bonuses, and it's a really solid escort mech. I literally find a friendly Assault class mech, and basically guard it while supporting at range with LLs. I mostly run with my Mad Dog: 6xLRM5 2xLL 2xML, Artemis, Probe, and a targeting computer Mk I. Have you done any of Conquest mode? It takes way too long to get into matches, and you always seem to be going up against pre-made groups which is making it quite annoying
You know, the new training mode they added in where you can do target practice and the sort, has this "out-of-mech" moment when you switch to another mech to try out. It's the ONLY time you get a feel for the real sense of scale, and I really wish it would feel like that when we pilot them, as opposed to them feeling like you're just a robot in an FPS. The teaser trailer for MWO gave a great sense of how I wish it felt.
Seriously, I don't understand why we don't have this yet. I am seriously confused about it, because everyone has wanted it since the first nightmare Reese had in T1, Sci-Fi battles have been in for the last 2 decades, and instead we got whatever the hell Salvation was trying to be and now Genesys (which I have not seen yet I should mention.)
I want to see some Animatrix-like mega battles between humanity and the machines, and a subsequent MMOFPS and 16 player survivor horde mode game of some sort. I HAVE SPOKEN!
