Thanks for that Ed.

I'm expecting a bumpy release (they've pretty much said as much), but at this point I don't care if there's bumps as long as this UI 2.0 thing stops being the thing that holds up all the other cool things (tonnage limits, lobby, CW etc).

Onward we go hopefully.

PS. if you get the Founder's Cat working well share the build, I had success with LRM + [PPC/ERLL] builds before the LRM nerf but have parked it since then.

Initially reading through the Clan Tech update, I got the impression that Clan HDS, Clan ES, Clan XL, and Clan FF would be straight up upgrades over their IS counterparts, and replacing all of these on our IS mechs with the Clan equivalent would be required to stay competitive and basically be a "Introduction of Clan Tech CB Tax." However, I see this at the bottom:

Quote:
While the OmniMech rules apply to all Clan OmniMechs as well as any Inner Sphere OmniMechs we may make in the future, there are also rules that apply to all Clan and Inner Sphere 'Mechs, dictating the use of Clan technology.
-Clan 'Mech can only equip Clan weapons and equipment.
-Clan 'Mechs cannot equip Inner Sphere technology.
When customizing a Clan 'Mech, only Clan technology is shown in the players inventory.
-Inner Sphere 'Mechs cannot equip Clan technology.
-When customizing an Inner Sphere 'Mech, only Inner Sphere technology is shown in the players inventory.


So no mixing and matching of IS and Clan equipment? That certainly makes things less complicated, and better differentiates Clan chassis from IS Chassis...

Yeah I'm actually glad they are doing this at least initially until they can get things balanced, which I expect will take a good while.

Also so it won't make all those expensive Innersphere Gauss/PPC/ERLL/AC20 we all bought as useless as single-heat-sinks if the uber clan weapons were all of a sudden available to IS mechs.
