There is a bug, you actually need to cap win on Assault. I'll let you decide whether that is better or worse, but yeah lot of base rushes/cap wars all weekend with people only going to get more desperate towards the end as people who've gotten it stop voting assault to avoid being forced into that.

The weapons fired ones, well...

Ballistics and Energy are easy - machine guns and tag count and have no cooldown. You can use a macro or even without just manual taptaptaptap can breeze through them all rapidly in a couple of matches.

Missiles its SRM-2s, LRM-5 and ATM-3 spam all weekend I guess.

I had a feeling that was you the other day. :P

Honestly, the assault matches were some of the best I’ve ever played, mostly because people actually cared about the objective rather than turned it into Skirmish with extra steps. The base rushes I tried didn’t work; to succeed, my team had to get a little creative. A small capture lance to go to the enemy base through flanking maneuvers, while the heavy hitters keep the bad guys occupied.

My problem that game was that I was trying and failing to keep up in a 64 kph Black Knight, got intercepted by an Ebon Jaguar, and ultimately never made it to the enemy base. Though it might’ve helped in the end, as I kept that Ebon Jaguar busy with me while my team captured the enemy base. You decide. ;D

Anyway, I’m not complaining about this weekend event that got extended. I unironically wish more of my Assault matches were like this. Maybe with less deathball base rushes that sometimes turn into base races, but still with a focus on completing the objective. Skirmish is fun sometimes, but I don’t want it to be my entire MechWarrior Online experience. I like fighting over and completing objectives much more than I like deathmatches.
