Don't expect much about theories; this isn't that kind of article.

Joram, I don’t think I’m ahead of you. I’m getting ready to try the 4th story mission where you try to take the ammunition depo. I’m getting waxed. My problem seems to be my lack of heavy mechs. I have a jager but the others are all mediums. Seems that I can’t win the battles against heavy mechs to salvage them so I’m stuck fighting medium mechs which i have a ton of.

I use a Trebuchet as my LRM boat with 20’s and 15.
A Centurion with a mix as a brawler and a Humpback with AC 20 and M laser as a brawler as well. Neither seems well suited. I have my Vindicator carrying 2 PPEs for long distance sniping and then a Blackjack. I can’t seem to get the builds right so that I can win against an enemy lance with a few mediums
Hmmm, I think I am just on the 4th mission.  I haven't read what it is but given that I have 3 heavy  (albeit all on the small side) already, guess im doing all right.  I do a lot of side missions and try to make sure my drop weight is worth a half star more than the number of difficulty icons.  Then I move to the story mission when I'm either low on cash or feel I have enough weight to handle the story mission.  Not always possible to wait but so far that strategy has worked.  Even level missions are usually winnable just fine but  not always profitable even if the payout is more.

That all sounds horrible. It will probably be a gargantuan cluster-relationship when it rolls out the door, but I'm really interested in seeing what 1.6.3 or so plays like.

Thanks. But I knew about that - I just didn't like that tool

8GB download installed - now the 13GB map  <:-)

I'm installing the map right now too...

Really, really wish I had a hornet to fly over it with.  :'(
