Battle for the Inner Sphere

Footage of the first match here. Sorry for the low-volume commentary.
#mwll, where all the anuschat happens
(2:46:59 PM) Pytak: vicious anus
(2:47:09 PM) haarp: it hungers
(2:48:01 PM) Pytak: for moar

(11:38:04 AM) Merf: I can touch everything.
(11:38:07 AM) Merf: Prepare your anus
(11:38:50 AM) Merf: It is okay. I am your father, which makes it totally not creepy

What was the criteria for the mech set ups?

Did you do it by mech cost, or by tonnage?

In this game you cannot do it by tonnage, as even 100ton IS mechs are ... less usefull.

I don't know what i would have done in the IS situation.  The IS team is heavily out classed in every category if based on tonnage.

I think the IS team could have done better had every single one of them taken RAC5 Bushwhackers and Awesomes with LBLS, and if light mechs were required then Owens for the light mechs, and maybe a single light command mech (such as a Raven).

I simply don't know though, on that map?

Maybe did a RAC 5 bushwhacker flank.  Just have them run BY the clan team and unload there RAC5 to overheat then go for cover.

The Bwhackers could probably do this while Awesome provided medium to long range laser support.

Taking atlases though?  Atlas mechs are sort of a joke, maybe 1 of them for an entire team is useful, and only as a Hammer to Anvil.


I hate Aircraft in this game, if I die from one, I leave.  I wish I could just fire back at them from a Mech.

See over here for background and discussion on the match:

Hm, there was also a bit more cut out than just standing around.

Yah the video I recorded was crap. (I don't understand the lag I had going on, my FPS was fine but the server connection was iffy for some reason and I kept getting lag spikes.)

Still a good match to watch though

Interesting how the situations/maneuvers which finally decided the match had been cut out as '10 min of standing around' (...)

Anyway, good frapsing and interesting to see that clan had been by far more mobile than I experienced it from the cockpit view.

It wasn't actually a big silly zerg at all tbh invictus.

We had 3 groups split off doing specific jobs on that map, can't really tell from the video though.

Anyway good round.

It was 85k x15 players. No tonnage limits or anything to that effect.

If you are referring to the inferno match in regards to your awesome/bushwacker concept. Our Clan list was designed with a warthog rush in mind. We even practiced it. Anyway it's pretty is easy to play Desk Chair General with a video in hand illustrating how the clan side chose to fight.

no joke, battle time chaos is biznatch.  Mental fatigue can play a role too, all the resets and waiting make ya anxious.
