i still fire up MWO a few times a week. Having a blast with the Phoenix Hawk mech right now and the game balance feels better for the most part.

I'm trying to revisit MWO to get ready for MW5, but got my butt kicked in the solo queue with my old reliables (King Crab and Banshee) so noticed alot has changed...

So I have to figure out the new skill system and unlock the right stuff and trash a bunch of redundant old mechs and build something useful.

Been chatting with Mojo, Feetwet and Snapdad on Discord and it seems like a few of us interested in revisiting but we all have bad memories of the group queue matchmaker.

No nope

Life has wrecked me for the last 4 years and I don't have the requisite time to have fun anymore.

Miss the good times.

skill tree- max out survivability, take a few mobility nodes, and then get the radar derp nodes. the rest makes very little difference

i'm still playing and having a blast. the phoenix hawk is the most fun mech i have ever played in the game. not great, but super fun

Thanks for the skill tree info Clyde, I hadn't been on since that change happened.

Just been running a Hunchback 4SP and actuallly having some fun in random pug drops.

Trying to watch for what mechs are being run to see what I should invest in purchasing or refitting of my existing mechs....

Hunchy 4SP is still viable and with the addition of MRM there are a lot more build options

Good to see you guys here :-)

Thanks for the info @Clydewinder, what build are you running on the PH? I've seen someone running PPCs on it effectively.

yeah IMO it doesnt have enough tonnage to really rock ballistics. all of my best builds are large lasers on the right side and mix of small/med pulse and machine guns on the left. fast engine and max jump jets, and a couple of them have dual AMS. simple left/right builds for the most part but the mobility and speed make it a blast to play.

a pair of snub nose PPCs is a good option too

this screenshot is from the PHX-KK hero mech but nearly all of the phoenix hawks can do similar builds:

The skill stuff is weird and overly complex, but I’m giving it a go. Converting historical SP, got some XP I don’t remember and generally starting all of that from scratch. Got my T16000M throttle set up and trying to remember controls. It’s coming back, but I’ve just done the testing maps. I’m sure I’ll get my ass handed to me in a real match. LOL

the most important thing to remember: you only need 91 skill points max per mech. any thing else can't be used.

The historical SP is for the mech line, not each individual variant, right?
I see with the MW5 preorder, you get some MC for MWO, and that’s doubled for founders.
Beta should be in Aug, full game in Sept. An earlier beta would be nice.

Did they ever fix the crappy matchmaker in the public queue? Last time I played MWO, nearly every game was a 12-0, 12-1, 12-2 or 12-3 stomp. I get angry all day long, but when I'm relaxing, I want to feel calm, peaceful and happy. Losing like that does not help those feeling flourish.

I played some earlier, and although I got stomped, the rounds were pretty even with some good finishes. Of course, that's solo, not groups, so that might be different.

it's per chassis.... so if you have 2 identical mechs ( Stalkers I assume LOL ) that you could buff one out for lasers and buff the second out for missiles

you also don't need to own 3 of a mech type anymore to boost them up.

Great fun last night! we had some great variety of drops in the group queue even and it was great to see you guys make some old mechs work well (@feet/Cataphract 4X, @raw/Warhawk, @mojo/Hunchie 4SP)

Here was the Dragon Flame build I was running which was pretty fun:
