Build Emergency Room / Re: Help with KDK-SB PPFLD
« Last post by theholylancer on February 14, 2017, 04:16:23 PM »
Hmm, what if I switched over that to a KDK-2 who can actually poptart unlike the SB without JJs and then ran something like

maybe switch a couple heats out for srm-4s or something?


I am not sure on dropping to a 380 XL just because of how much the speed helps in getting into position, but granted with PPCs I guess that won't be as big of an issue.

Yeah the problem with the SB running long-range stuff is that a Gauss rifle and 2 PPCs is literally the maximum PPFLD you can get out of it. As such, I do recommend throwing in some backup weapons. 4 SRM4s are super light (relatively speaking) and can be surprisingly devastating.
Build Emergency Room / Help with KDK-SB PPFLD

Yeah, I am an idiot, I got the standard pack and thought hey the hero isn't that much more.

I love the KDK-3 and the dakka playstyle, and wanted to whale it up a bit (no not that whale, yes the other one).

But then with the SB, I found that I am not that great of a brawler, even tho my time with SRMed lights was fine, that was more like flanking and surprising slow pokes than this kind of actual brawlers.

So I am thinking of trying to do something I love to do, PPFLD with the SB, even if its hard points is suboptimal and all. Until I learn to brawl more effectively (doing 300 dmg and killing 1 guy then going out is not my definition of good...) in something maybe a bit faster, I want to try this:

anyone have any idea on making it less sucky, since I know that the SB was not really mean to be a PPFLD boat unlike the whale.

I was thinking of using a C-Streak SRM for possible anti light / additional firepower, but thought that its kind of useless with the slower torso speed and since the hard points are not on the arms, not that great.

Also was thinking of a LRM option with the PPCs and Gauss, but just said more armor for the trade... Maybe that is a better idea?

Also, I think I am going to learn to brawl in something like a timberwolf (because I mastered it, and have spare chassis that I am not using) or some other slower heavy to learn the ropes. I mean I have thunderbolts mastered too and I seem to do a LOT better with LPL / laser based builds and they are kind of brawly given the relative lack of range LPL and medium lasers from IS. But they are still FAR better than SRMs and AC20s...

Hi, the clan drop deck seems to suggest 250 tons (for 2x timberwolf and 2x hunchback IIC), but atm I am seeing 240 tons as the max limit.

I was wondering if that was outdated? I was hoping to look for a 4th mech after 2x timbers and 1x hunchback in PPFLD config and then something to compliment that with only 40 tons to work with (likely light, don't think there is a recommended medium in that tonnage).

Also is the drop order always start off with your heavies? as a solo player I don't think I got a nice group to tell me what exactly they need.

I don't think I have that kind of reach lol. It's not like I decided that gauss/ppc should be good, the devs did that and the comp scene caught on quick.

I also haven't seen it be quite that pervasive. If anything, I'm seeing more LRM boats lately. Your english is fine, though :)

Hi G,

I made this account just to get rid of my frustration. I don't know if it's your fault or phils (sean), but the Gauss-Peep-Meta is killing the game for me. I droped for 10 matches tonight and 70% of them, the majority of our heavys and assaults are sitting way back gauss-peeping the asses off ; while the lights and mediums try to hold the frontline and get slaughtered. This is getting worse and worse. Please tell your followers to stop that.
I know the combination is trendy right now and an assaults can equip more of those guns; plus the extra armor for survivability - but that is not their role on the battlefield.
I am kinda shy and not well connected, so I only play solo-quickplay and your gauss-peep-meta is killing it for me. Hope you see my point.

Thnx, Bob

p.s. - pardon my english - I am german

Hard to say; the Misery's fallen off since the Kodiak's introduction but there hasn't been a whole lot of heroes to replace it...Sleipnir and Spirit Bear come to mind as the main other options. Spirit Bear is pretty fantastic, but it's a brawler, so...

Hey there, first time poster but love the site, very useful information.  Thanks for taking the time to put in the effort on it.

After reading your guide on making C-Bills, you recommend the Misery as number one.  Is that still accurate?  With the current sale and the expected skill tree changes not requiring three mechs I was thinking about grabbing it.
