Wouldn’t it be awesome if they surprise released the hornet tomorrow?

completed campaign  ;D i did not need an extra lance or extra pilots. for first phase i used 2 highlanders, king crab and a jagermech-A(LRM boat). second phase i kept the highlanders and crab as kamea came along in her atlas. after completion the credits roll. can mouse wheel up or down to speed those up or go back and read something you might have missed. at end of credits you can press escape and the game will continue. allowing free roam of map. for my pilots i had two master tacticians in my highlanders which let them act in phase 2 and a pilot with bulwark for my crab. my missile boats just need good gunnery. all 4 pilots i brought in last mission were maxed out.

What are your plans now? Will you collect one mech of each type?

hmm not a collector but i would like a couple more highlanders and 3 more atlases for a scout lance!! dont see myself doing multiplayer but would be nice if some future DLC included a co-op campaign. for now i will see what the rest of the map offers.

Double Celebration! Holiday weekend and finally got the Daughter and Son-In-Law out of the house and into their new place.  :clap:  There will be drinking and yardwork followed by drinking and gaming and after that, drinking and running nude through the house again. And drinking. I'm trying to master the mechanics of naval combat in Pillars of Eternity 2 while keeping my ship's crew happy with Fresh Fruit and Grog, the Rice Wine and Hardtack they weren't too thrilled about. Maybe there's an Island of Mc Donald's somewhere in the Deadfire. Have a Happy Memorial Day weekend Grogheads.

Four day weekend starting Friday. Going to finish Steel Division Boot Camp scenarios and then some. Like to get some Stellaris and either some Flashpoint Campaign Red Storm or Command Ops as well

Alan Parsons is one of my al time favourite musical artists.  :clap:

Very exhausting and rewarding week so far. Backyard, gardens, and pool all set for summer. But man it's hard work doing hardworking all day... can't wait to go back to actual work and relax a bit... #:-)
Still more to do tomorrow, then it's supposed to rain all weekend.

Been squeezing in some Stellaris with the new stuff.. good so far.

Got a LnLT game setup with SDR for Saturday.

Have a great holiday weekend 'Murica.  <:-)

You have a Happy Victoria Day!  :) Barth.

As for me,

I'm just in a funk. I have been playing a bit of Tales of Maj Eyal (reminds me of the old Angband days), Stellaris to see how 2.1 Niven is working out. I work Saturday (really short morning shift) and then off for the rest of the weekend including Monday.

Nice pick for song too.

Interesting guide but didn't tell me much.  Didn't even mention a single one of the Mechs I'm currently using.   Also, am really struggling on why you would ever pick a lighter class of Mech then what you can field.  The lone reason seems to be initiative but if you have a tactics specialty, you can get that initiative point back. 
I also tend to avoid PPC based builds for some reason but maybe I should revisit that.

I’ve been having quite a lot of success with my PPC sniper build. I use the Vindicator and arm it with 2 PPCs.
Armor is significantly reduced due to the range it fires from and the available weight is used to mount 8 heat sinks. I use Behemoth and have her “gunnery” and “guts” score high.  I put her up on a hill and watch her pound mechs from waaaaay outside their range. If both PPCs hit, there is almost always significant damage. The only time I don’t take it in my lance is if the terrain is very lunar. Makes it hard to get long range shots.

You DO need to keep your eye on things as without any short range weapons, an enemy light mech close in can be a pain

I love PPCs. You should give them a try. Longest range in the game, tremendous stability damage and no ammo. Trick is managing the heat

Millipede (Axis) vs Nelmsm (Soviet)
Cyrano (Axis) vs Iudi1867 (Soviet)
Ethel the Frog (Axis) vs Yskonyn (Soviet)
Iudi1867 (Axis) vs Anguille (Soviet)
JasonPratt (Axis) vs Shelldrake (Soviet)

Round 2
Patton Drives East - Stalin Drives West

Millipede (Soviet) vs Iudi1867 (Allies)
Cyrano (Soviet) vs Shelldrake (Allies)

Anguille (Soviet) vs TBC (Volunteer needed please!)

Round 3
Pacific Theater - 1944-45 Philippines

NB I have one Steam Code left in the event we get another player. If not then please consider joining Iudi1867 as a volunteer to face off against Anguille. (You will get the best score of your two games to add to your total, so something to consider especially if you do badly in Round 1).
