This just made my day….

Posted by wars128 on June 26, 2007

I was going trough a scenario in MegaMek, with an all level one lance(a stock Panther, Valk, wolfhound, and Firefly) versus 3 of the PP Locusts, the 5Ms. i was only in control of the Wolfhound. I lost the Valk, then the panther, and then myself, without the other side losing any. So I think I’m done for. but, somehow, lo and behold, the firefly got lucky enough to have 3 kills and win the senario for me. It just made me laugh so hard in disbelief!

I finally got around to downloading this program, played a few matches in it, and I like it. I feel that this way I can perhaps provide better reviews now that I have played soem matches, even though so far they have just been against bots. I wa thinking that maybe eventually I might start a tournament, or just have a time one day of the week when ill be on and you, the listeners, can go against me or something….

2 important website announcements!

Posted by wars128 on June 22, 2007

I have learned recently of two new and interesting developments in Battletech Webites. First of all, my favorite Battletech website of all time,, has gone wiki on us. That is really good, because it means it is much easier to upload designs, and to have discussions on them. also, the TRO hosting site www.mechground.comHas started up a newsletter, to let people know when the stats to the updated mechs in the updated TROs, i.e TRO3055U, will be added on to the website. I can’t wait for that!

I severely Dislike….

Posted by wars128 on June 21, 2007

Hey all. i got a message a long while back from someone saying it would be cool if I ranted about battletech stuff that i disliked. I have been going through Total Warefare on my computer over the past couple days, and i have found something to rant about: The support vehicel rules. Today i wanted to make a car. Just a plain, average car. Could I do it? nope. didnt get very far. The names for a couples things changed on me, I got cinfused, etc. Theres just too much math/ things to keep atention to at one time for me to do it. I would love to be able to do it, as I really like the idea of it all. But, I guess the way everything is written/ the rules is just to ….I honestly don’t have a word for it….
In other news, on a walk I came up with an idea. Every Monday, i’ll poll you guys on favorite Mechs, of varying types each week, like one week would be whats your favorite light Second line cla mech, etc. I also came up with every Wednsday i’d list a weapon, and you guys could post memorable/funny/odd stories involving that weapon. Sound interesting? Like it? Hate it? Let me know!

Posted by wars128 on June 1, 2007

I tried to record a show today, but for some reason the software that I was using kept on acting up, for no reason. i apologize for this, and I am trying to figure out the problem.
