What kind of weopom type do you like the most?
And why?

Since i startet the open beta pretty late i have only have time to test out missiles, and i think its kinda cool how they follow the ground when shooting from an hill or an cliff big_smile
Buti really like the look of the lasers big_smile so now before the real thing it would be nice to know what you people like. and why.
so i can make up my mind big_smile

I'm sorry, but this is what I saw when I read your post.

I like missiles.  They're cool.  I also like ewar because it makes your enemy useless if done correctly.

hehe, Beer and my bad grammar, well.

btw do you know Neoxx is a she?

Re: What kind of weopom type do you like the most?

Missiles are the clear winner if you don't like raging at the terrain.

p.s. You guys are jerks.

Huh?

Re: What kind of weopom type do you like the most?

I like using missiles. Mostly because they where the first weapons I tried. They also look cool.

Re: What kind of weopom type do you like the most?

First I wanted to go missiles. But then I messed up and picked EM guns. So I tried out EM guns since it is beta. They are terrible about hitting the terrain. Even at less than 20m I still hit dirt too often. So then I tried missiles. They are so much better. I hardly ever hit terrain. I can hit things from much farther away. I tried lasers with no EP. Again I hit dirt too often. They need to change LOS rules. Too much hitting dirt with lasers and EM guns. No wonder half or more of the players are playing missile bots.
Top 6 combat characters IMO
1 missiles (they don't have to worry about hitting dirt)
2 EM E-war (strongest, but not aggressive enough for me)
3 missile/drain (still very strong)
4 laser E-war (would be second best, but too many missile users out there)
5 EM (no range, los is horrid, only reason they are better than laser is rock/paper/scissors)
6 laser (feel sorry for these guys, every missile mech out there will slaughter them)
Please fix LOS for EM and laser users, I'd say fully 25% of their shots are wasted on terrain. Add any lag/latency at all and they are fully terrain kitable by the other 4.

A high number of people will be sporting a resist plate of their lowest, if not 2 lowest, resistances, often swaying the balance of resistances in almost the opposite direction.

Dont take the bot resistances at face value.

Re: What kind of weopom type do you like the most?

I think the LoS calculations need to be a tiny bit more relaxed somehow. Whether its tweaking the height that calculations are taken from or some other issue with terrain.

I can vouch that most of the time when you are shooting your feet, there is an actual obstruction, its just you aren't aware of it becuase you don't have your cam locked at your bot's head.

The real question is can missiles remain balanced in terms of dps whilst having this distinct advantage? Not one that I can answer.

From what I can tell, the LOS is determined from tile to tile in a step like fashion, but it seem like it stretches in a platform from the middle of the tile, so even on a slope it could calculate like you're shooting down steps, sometimes hitting the end of a step causing it to miss.

Just imagine those mining scan saturation cubes extending slightly above the ground... everywhere.

Maybe they'll get a more smooth LOS calculation that draws straight lines between the center point of each tile or something like that would help immensely.  Good luck to the devs getting this sorted.

Re: What kind of weopom type do you like the most?

The LOS just needs fixing. Then I'd say it's quite balanced currently.
