oh, 1 more thing. Abought what mech to take......

Take whatever 1 your the best in. I recomend trying the Thor config. The nice thing abought the thor is the torso twists 360 Degrees! Oops!! I see you can only drive a 55 ton mech in VL. Hummmm......

My shadow cat config is a good one. You might want to ask tempiic to E-Mail her Uziel configs. The Uziel is fast & hard to hit. It is a kick butt mech!! Tempi still rocks in that thing. :D

Witch ever one you pic..... Drive it as often as posible!! This is the ONLY way to get used to it.
Hope this helps. :D

Your perspective of how far up on a hill will change depending on if you are
looking up or down. So be careful how far up you go! :) You can actually
see over the hill by looking down. When you look down just look at the top of
the screen. Same goÂ’s for looking around corners to. Say you want to see
whatÂ’s around the corner to the left...... Get close to the corner, stop, then
turn so you are facing the direction you want to see..... You ca “see” around
the corner by looking at the right side of your computer screen. This only
works in 3rd person view though.
I always use 3rd person view. It gives you the best view of everything. 1st
person view is to restrictive. It’s OK I guss if your into the “realism” thing.

IÂ’m not. :) :)

Hope this helps. :) :)

oh yah......

Just thought of another thing. :)

When you are coming around a corner..... You can shoot & hit them BEFORE
you are all the way out!! :)

This one has been a secret I learned a while ago. :) Just fire your “ARM”
weapons 1st. Then as you come the rest of the way out, shoot your torso
weapons.
This game is realistic.......

Your arms are the 1st to come around the corner. You wonÂ’t hit them with
both arms but........ You will “jar” them enough so hopefully thay miss there
intended target. ( Example: Your center torso, or a kill shot ) I have done
this many times & seen them shoot there wad into the ground, or miss all
together! :) Some times you will still take a hit. Ushley not were thay
were aiming though. In any case, you will get the 1st shot & hit. Getting
the 1st shot will be the thing that keeps you alive the longest. What gets
you killed is the guy ( or Woman :) in TempiÂ’s case :) ) that you didnÂ’t see.
Meaning..........

Thay shot 1st.

Hope this helps. :) :)

Med is 40-55 tons.
Next time we are online & doing training.....
I'll take my shadow Cat & show what thease small to med mechs can do for the team. When you are in a small mech, you MUST work with your BIG lancemates!

You don't pack the fire power that you can fit on the bigger mechs. BUT....
You are faster & more maneverable than the big boys.
When you are driving a small to med size mech, you probibly wont be at the top of the kill list.....

But that isn't your job any way.

Our job as a team is to WIN!!

The job as a small to med size mech is to pack enouph fire power to be a threat!
Or more to the point.....

The big guns should be in a posision so when the little guy distracts them.....
Thay CAN take full advantage of the fact that the enemy guns are not trained on them, & wop the living crap out of them!! :D :D

Example: Have 1 or 2 jumping MK II's & a shadow Cat. The jumpers jump & shoot as the little guy ( Or Girls :D oops! WOMAN :D ) Distracts.

The only thing that the big guys need to watch out for, is not to have our own team mate to close to our intened kill. This is to avoid getting a "Splash Kill" on our own team mate!! Care must allways be taken NOT to do this. It is then concidered a "Suicide" & is -2 kills in Team Distruction.
On that note.....

Here is a tip, If you are allmost dead, & you are close to an enemy, GET IN HIS FACE!! Don't let him move, MAKE him KILL you!! Be carefull not to kill him as it will kill YOU to!! MAKE him KILL you!! :D
Why???
You will cause MAJOR splash damage to them!! :D Making them an easyer kill for your team mates! Not to mention thay will get no score for the kill!! It will count as -2 aganst them!! :D :D :D :D

Warn your team if you are abought to die when you are in close proxcimity to them. So thay don't take splash when you blow!
Better yet, Keep a little distance from your team mates when you are realy messed up.
Some times splash damage can't be avoyed. From frend or foe.

BTW
Check out my post in the MW4 "general Discussion" Thay are comming out with an expanshion pack for MW4!!! :D :D :D :D
