The Epona
« on: February 09, 2011, 12:54:50 AM »
Hi, just wanted to know if the Epona hovercraft will be released before 0.5.0 or will we have to wait patiently for some time before we can get a hovercraft that has more fire power than the current hovers (who has barley 40% the fire power of most light mechs or next to no armour at all  :-\)?

/Andreas Wants something else to do when mountain climbing in a hover besides calling himself a mountain goat and charging down from the top to ram some poor tank driver  ::)

2x mpl hephestus is currently the best starting craft for almost any map. i have faced down a uziel prime 1v1 in a 5 min duel and won. Its armor is better than almost any 49k lv mechs and its speed is fast enough that you can easily cap 1-2 points and get some easy cash. i will always level at least 2 times in it and i have gone all the way up to 85k rank, though i did switch to the 2x ERMBLAS version.

I would like another well armored craft like it in the medium mech range though. 2x sbl, 2x mbl and a LBX10 would be so fun at 90kph  for 70-75k range. maybe make them ER lasers i if it had the heat management to do so.

I do love the hephestus on thunder rift though. RAMMING SPEED! knocked a mauler off a bridge by ramming it. so much fun.

RAC speed adjustments should only be limited by imagination, ever increasing, ever higher!!!!

condor comes to mind there O.o

It's in the shop getting sexier.  It'll be worth the wait.

I don't think I've ever seen a new chassis released before a major update. So no, you won't be seeing it before 0.5.0. You'd be seeing it at 0.5.0, at the earliest.
