I wish there was a way for WG to make the New Orleans less garbage.

Reimplementing carriers would do it.

He really is. I spent hours dressing him up and letting him go wild.

Link is avoiding Snu-Snu when going into a town of only ladies.

Same, got it in my first game today. I was struggling mightily to get wins last night, and I finally managed to clear the last two battles I needed in my M6. First game I ran today, I chose my M6 again, and nabbed it immediately. When in doubt, monster truck. I do find it a little coincidental that the first mission after the 8-mission threshold is much easier to get. :hiding:

 

I'm going to hold off on the T25 Pilot for now, I'll wait and see how tomorrow's mission goes. If it's fairly easy, I'll try to knock it out, if not I'll just buy the remaining missions credits I need. 

 

 

 

As I was finishing up my last few battles yesterday, one player claimed he had been playing for 17 hours trying to complete the mission.

Maybe if you give the IS mech an axe and let it ambush the Clan mech... other than that... huh?

 

There are only four 100 ton mechs in MWO atm; two IS, two Clan.

 

IS gets the Atlas and King Crab

Clans get the Dire Wolf and Kodiak

 

Of the IS mechs, the Atlas is best for brawling builds while the King Crab can do sustained DPS and pin-pin-front-loaded-damaged builds (King Crab can do brawling build too, but its inferior to Atlas at them). They aren't exactly terrible, but they aren't great either.

 

The Dire Wolf is superior to the King Crab at sustained DPS and PPFLD builds, while the Kodiak is faaaaaar superior at both, in addition to being superior to the Atlas as a brawler, except in fairly niche circumstances.

 

It is just a total joke to say the IS 100 tonners are superior, and is typical opinions of the 'whaa, Clans suck now, PGI is biased in favor of Inner Sphere mechs!' crowd, who are exclusively terrible players.

I didn't care enough to ask, but I assume he took at least short breaks for food and played the majority of the time.  If you think about it, being in the top 3 anything on 10 wins for a bad player is more about luck than anything they do.  They just don't know where to put themselves and how to stay alive in a way that lets them do damage.  Or they can't execute it if they do.

Random car talk.

 

I have one as a daily driver. https://youtu.be/--weWY58mR8?t=571  It's... OK. Not exciting at all, but big, and being a diesel, gets good mileage for my 30-mile-each-way commute. Very practical. Very boring. However, being a diesel, I'll be stupid if I don't hand it back next year for the refund, so I'm currently daydreaming on how to replace it. The problem is I like big V8s. I've an S4 in the garage (Well, what's left of one after 11 years of use) https://youtu.be/2QLgbTcMV1k?t=23, and the fiancee has an SL, both are weekend cars. I want to keep this trend going. The catch is that big (I've a family, and cargo to haul) V8 cars these days (Think S6 or CTS-V) tend not to be the cheapest to buy new, and not the most economical to commute in. Getting a used one a year or two old would be far more affordable, but given I've put nearly 40k miles on the Passat over the two years I've had it, I would blow through whatever was left on the warranty in no time at all, making things more expensive again.

 

I'm giving serious consideration to replacing it with two cars, one of which would be electric. The two lead contenders right now are the e-Golf and Focus Electric. Both are pretty normal cars (unlike, say, leaf or i3), which are cheap to start with, cheap to run, and given the serious advantage that the Bolt has over them (with the Tesla 3 presumably on the road by next year), they'll probably get even cheaper in order to make sales: Face it, Bolt is a far better car than either of those two, and less than $10,000 more. However, for pure commuting, I don't need the extra 100 miles of range, cargo capacity (which sucks in the Ford) can be dealt with by another vehicle.

 

I'll 'net' about $20k in my pocket on the VW when I turn it in next year. The Ford is about $31k new on the road. The tax rebate will be some $10k between the State and Federal electric bonuses. So for the following few years, commuting will be basically free, especially if I do my charging at work. With that, I can then get a large V8 sedan, maybe with no more than two years left on the warranty, and keep that for the family excursions, long-haul cruises, fun drives and the like with far less wear and tear, less frequent visits for servicing, and so on.

 

At least, that's the current plan. It has changed several times over the last year.

 

 

 

I've been driving Mazdas since 2002. My Protege' LX and 3S have been the nicest cars I've ever owned.

Why not a Dodge Charger? A V8 under $40k...

When I'm inside the car, I want to enjoy the car as well as the engine. Dodge just doesn't do much for me on the interior fit and finish side of things.

You could do a V8 Mustang GT.
