Time to jump the fray?
Currently (0.8.2) there are few spotters (and we had quite few LRM fests lately):
I tend to open with Owens prime:
2x ML 2xLRM5 TAG
for it's good backup of ML and comparably powerful armor. (Also it is capable to engage targets beyond 1400m currently)
As soon as practical (read -killed) I try to swap to Owens D:
2x XSPL 2XSRM6 TAG
for it more securely
supports my money printing campaign
Therefrom I wait to accumulate enough for Clan mediums:
Enter Shadowcat D
ATM(HE) ATM(ER) cNARC (with free tons)
While not impressive at firepower, I-JJ and MASC allow it to evade and escape quite dense fire, while deploying NARC
Even more so by spare tons of NARC missiles
Excellent Black Lanner D:
3xSPL LPL LRM10 and NARC
While lacking anything but MASC, it really packs punch and quite often so
And best ever pest: Black Lanner G:
3xMG ERLBL LRM10 LRM15 TAG
You name it and it has it: C3, MASC, E-optics, top speed 166kph - doesn't get any better than that...
And I tellin'ya boy
, if this one had any jump jets, Bat-man
would certainly acquired one for its avid collection!
as lately clan LRMS fire with a slightly upwards ark, they are able to damage at point blank, adding quite some close quarters protection for clan LRM boats.
But i had best results with teammates using Arrows *_*
