I think I'll opt for this build - https://mwo.nav-alpha.com/mechlab?b=ffffabc2_HBK-IIC-A

Played a few games last night in preparation and found this nice enough, ER Large flavours of that felt a little too hot in comparison, but last time I played those was years and pre-Cauldron patches ago.

Well, now I have a new PC to play on, and just in time to do this event!

Too bad I had a rather nasty losing streak today. lol

I feel like large pulse/medium laser vomit is the way to go for energy builds right now.  I have a Dire Wolf configured as such with UAC/2s and SRM18 as back-up and it's absolutely a terror!

Well, while boating in a Supernova A to rush all that missile damage, ATMs finally clicked for me. I think I have a much better understanding of them than I did last year. They feel a lot nicer than boating LRMs alone, or even primarily. ;D

Now I need to come up with a ballistics boat. I have a Dire Wolf C I could use...

Just won it yesterday, any tips for which skills to pick?

I am currently (temporary) running it as this:

Little disappointed it's a A variant and not baseline.  I'm still grateful it's free machine, but I'd like to have armed thing with Gauss Rifles to ping people from distance given it's armor profile.  Skills or no skills, it's think armored machine (better than canon one but still...)

So, I'm rather curious now, seeing as I can now play MWO more freely than in the past... When do monthly free 'Mech events typically get announced?

The events usually hit early in the month and last for about 3 weeks. They don’t announce too far ahead, last one was announced on the 7th and started shortly after

Added to that, this one will end in about three days. The next Free 'Mech event will probably start a few days after that
