Also, will a Clan mech continue forward and leave a potential enemy behind them? Both my decoys are prone, but not necessarily out. Assuming, of course, that the Clan mechs haven't figured out that they can ignore them. If they do stop to "finish off" the decoys, will they still be able to explode? (i.e. would the signal have already been sent?)
The way it works out is that the clan mechs move, then we move (and also declare self destructs), then the clan mechs get to move once more. So, effectively you'll see one turn's worth of movement after declaring a self destruct.

If a mech is destroyed "for real" (i.e. center torso or head section destroyed) before completing the self-destruct cycle, then it won't be able to blow up.

As far as figuring out what can be ignored, the Crusader decoy has no arms or legs, so even if it had weapons in the torso, it wouldn't be able to use them, so it's being ignored even if it's twitching a little. "TheMix decoy" is also going to be ignored as it has no weapons and is prone while facing the wrong way.

Okay. So, basically, the whole self-destruct thing was pretty pointless.

It's not the most useful tool in your arsenal, no. Mostly just an "if you get lucky or swarmed by elementals" type of deal.

But you can operate your mech after self-destructing a remote, so it doesn't cost you a movement phase or anything.

Looks like I won't be able to process the turn tomorrow, either, so anyone who wants to get their turns in can still do so.

"Hey, you guys ever feel like we're the mooks here?" Moley pipes up, firing up the Thunderbolt's jump jets to clear Siljanus' Mackie as the big mech gets briefly bogged down trying to go down the slippery river slope.

"What do you mean?" Siljanus asks.

"You know, mooks. Disposable henchmen whose only purpose is to demonstrate how badass the main protagonists are." Moley responds, splashing down effortlessly.

"Uh..."

"Well, you know how most of the time we're driving superior mechs while fighting swarms of tanks and hovercraft? Well, they're the mooks. But here, we've got a swarm of disposable decoy mechs and the clanners have much better pilots and tech."

"Think I see your point." Siljanus responds, firing the Mackie's PPCs and gauss rifle, only scoring a hit with a PPC on the target Ryoken. "But jeez, can you just focus?"

Moley grunts as return fire from the northbound Ryoken melts armor off the Thunderbolt's center torso while the rest of the lasers simply hit the water.

The rest of our attacks against the Hellbringer don't go too well. It may be out in the open, but it's going pretty damn fast and at range. Plus, with its ECM running, it makes it harder to target and thus, all shots against it miss, while it cores out Stefan's decoy, which tumbles to the bottom of the hill. The connection to Siljanus' decoy goes out as an LRM salvo blasts the head off. Isgrimnur's decoy is the only one whose shots would have connected, but the Loki's anti-missile system engages and shoots the LRM warheads out of the air.

The Kurita forces report direct engagement with their part of the clan force, scoring a few hits and losing at least two LoaderMechs, which El Guapo acknowledges as his shots fail to connect with the rapidly jumping Thor (the Loki being an even more losing proposition). The surrounding forest heats up rather unpleasantly as a PPC shot from said Thor goes wide of the Marauder but ignites a swath of trees. Between the extra fire and all the extended range PPCs, the Marauder's cockpit is getting pretty hot at this point.

"Come out, surat, let us see how well you do in the open!" comes the taunt over the general frequency. "You too, little Griffin!", as a salvo of LRMs from the Thor wallops Lich's mech. Out of the corner of his eye, he notices a squad of elementals attempting to climb up his decoy. That's not great, if they figure out that the decoy's a decoy... well, it probably won't matter too much since most of the decoys have been taken out already. The Man O' War runs up to the river, setting off vibrabombs to the side along the way, dropping off a squad of battle armor at the river bank, presumably with the intent of having them jump across. The other clanners continue darting back and forth on the other side of the river bank, although it's pretty obvious we're going to be flanked from both north and south.

3, 4, 4 and 7.

We are rolling 2d6s, right? Why are all our rolls so bad?!

My griffin is unfortunately too exposed for me to be confortable leaving it parked, can't waste time having my decoy blow up.

Nick, El Guapo can give the Archer a clean line of fire to the Thor and Man-O-War, yes?

Question, why did I only fire the LRM/10? The target was within 9. Shouldn't I have also fired the MLs and the streak SRMs? Is there some kind of computation that happens elsewhere that determines there is no chance to hit, so no point in trying?

I believe that anyone with a free "command" slot can give that order.

Edit: My Kurita Crusader can probably give the command. It doesn't look like there are any opponents in range for it.

I need some advice. It looks like I could move my Crusader up to 2421 or 2522, which would put me to within 3 of the Thor and/or Man-o-War; but would that leave my back too exposed to the south? There is a hill. But having never played, it's tough to know what is a stupid move and what isn't.

You can actually self-destruct the decoy without wasting your turn - you just say "self destruct", and then pilot your regular mech and it'll try its best to blow up. And yes, although it's a moot point as the Archer (Kurita one in 3113) has line of sight on both of those anyway (being up on higher ground lets it ignore the woods at level 0).

Right, if your "target number" is worse than 12, I forego firing to let you conserve heat. Unfortunately with 8 players I don't quite have enough time to give everyone a heads up on that. But, to give you an idea of what firing at that Gargoyle was like when it was in 1819:

3 gunnery
+2 intervening and target hex light woods
+2 medium range for LRMs / +4 long range for medium lasers and SRMs
+2 target movement modifier

So you're looking at 3 + 2 + 2 + 2 (9) or 3 + 2 + 4 + 2 (11).

... that and I completely whiffed on which target I had you shooting at (Loki vs your actual declared target of Gargoyle). Unfortunately, I can't go back and re-do the attack correctly, but so far you guys have two "whiffs" from me. I'll let you pick how to apply them (El Guapo gets one too because I messed up his movement with the Awesome vs Awesome decoy earlier)

For this turn, you designate a Clan mech. The mechwarrior gets butterfingers and four (randomly selected, non-MG) of the mech's weapons become unusable for a turn.

El Guapo, since I screwed up your movement with the Awesome earlier, you get to pick a clan mech. Next turn, it will only be able to move at walk MP.

The Mad Cat can take a shot at your back. He'd be in medium range with a large pulse laser, gauss rifle and LRM (the first two will punch right through your rear armor, the LRM will hurt), so with your movement mod (if you walk) and him running, you're looking at +5 to hit your rear arc. +6 if you jump (but then you take a +3 on your attacks). Not the best shot, he'll probably target something else unless one of his buddies already called all the juicy targets.

(I'm using a "not the strictest" version of the clan rules of engagement, which allows a mechwarrior to switch targets if the target leaves LOS or is at a really crappy shot, but they'll avoid doubling up on targets as much as possible).

Well... @#%^.

This is what happens when there is no strategy.

I wasn't even looking at the Mad Cat. So either he gets to shoot me in the back, or the two closer ones do.

Looks like WestorEast or Leraje may be able to at least make it out. :(

Since this is ridiculous and no one seems to want to discuss any kind of strategy...

TEAM KURITA
Crusader >> move to 2707; attack anything in range
CRD-3R DECOY >> detonate

TEAM OO
THEMIX >> move to 2520; attack Thor 2519
THEMIX DECOY >> detonate


And if I understood correctly, impair the firing of Man O'War 2319.

Hey, I'm trying to coordinate efforts!

Unfortunately, we can't hit shit.

At this point, we got pincered good, we should try and pull back. There's a Thor and a Man-o-War up north. Both are tough customers, but the Man-o-War Prime is not actually a big deal. A lot of SRMs up close, but we can safely duel it long range.

Thor is in the open, and while it has moved a bit, it's not an impossible hit for close and medium range guns, we are pretty good gunners overall.

Steffan might want to turn south and fire at the Mad Cat, he can get a perfect line of sight on it and it has a low movement mod.

Hopefully, third time is the charm.

> LICH DECOY: Blow up.
> LICH: Jump enough to get +3 evasion, stay within 9 of the 2519 Thor with clear sightlines, fire ERPPC and LRMs.
> ARC-2R: All LRMs on the Thor.

ON1-K >> 2904, fire @ Stormcrow 2301


Also, promise a sacrifice of a few Astechs to RNGesus in order to shoot better :twisted:

Sorry about that - you actually had a better shot if you stayed still though ( moving gives you a penalty). Turned out to be a moot point. If you had a different plan, you can take a “bonus” identical to El Guapo (pick a clan mech, limit it to walking speed it’s next move)

Bad enough to be the “mooks” but to not even shoot straight is just too much. :(

FYI, you only have 5 MP (running), so you'll be one short. (either turn right, back up, turn right, back up for 4, which you can't do because you can only "walk" backwards or turn left x2, forward, turn right, forward for 6)

Ok well to be honest I think we should have moved south and ganged up on the mad cat but everyone's squaring up for 1v1s for some reason so I think the most helpful thing I can do is try and get in behind them, maybe get one or two to turn around, so

Jump to 2025 facing the the nobori nin and fire everything at it except the long-range missiles and whatever is in my arms because I want to try and punch his damaged legs

Trigger the self destruct on lich and mix's decoy, The whammer and phoenix hawk too unless I can't or someone disagrees?


Please don't leave me hanging guys, Leraje and west or east you need to join the fight, I'd recommend the mad cat to try and blunt the flank.

I think hooking south to turn their flank would be an option as you mentioned. I figured the clan units at the bottom of the map would continue east and after punching through that nobori we could advance through that gap between the two hills and roll them up (yeah rather optimistic but hey why not?). By the same token we could have perhaps engaged the two mechs to the north of the OOers while a mech or two keeps the Clanners interested in the south of the map then hooked downward along the river to engage the forces in the south but the minefield kinda limits our ability to maneuver forcing us to slog through the river.

FYI, you're a 4/6/4, so you're 1 short of 2926. You can run there, but you can only face south.

I think breaking the flank from the north is easier than doing so from the south.

We could eliminate (well put in a spirited fight anyway) those two mechs in the north while those mechs in the south advance then pivot south staying behind the hills and hit them in the rear...if there's anyone left. Are the Kurita forces really unavailable or can one or two swing down so we have a pincer of our own?

The ones you guys control directly can certainly help you out, especially if they have nothing else to do. They might have an attitude about it, though.

Just spitballing here but we have three zones of conflict which I outlined on the map. If we can rely on at least some Kurita mechs to the north I propose a pincher move against the two mechs in the center zone to clear them out. The other Kurita mechs in the far north seem to be pinning down Clan forces in the northern zone or need to aggressively engage them to pin them down. The mechs I've circled in the south zone can make a fighting withdrawal to defense line yellow and hold there. We can hold the two passes against any mechs that come through and any survivors from the center zone conflict can join us. Or if we've taken a lot of damage conduct a fighting withdrawal to secondary defense line blue to tighten up our front and anchor ourselves closer to the Kurita mechs. Also we can fall back through hex 3517 and reposition behind the hills if needed.

I'm open to other suggestions but just wanted to have some fun with 3D paint! :D

Initial pincer movement vs those two pesky mechs in the center zone. Slow withdrawal of the circled mechs taking opportunity shots if possible to defense line yellow. Decoys doing some decoying. I assume that if they say “jammed” next to them we can’t even send a self destruct order? Decoys suck.

Tightening our front and path for withdrawal and regrouping if necessary:

"Why don't you see how all of us do, jackass?" TheMix taunts the mechwarrior in the Thor as El Guapo slowly wriggles the Marauder out of the burning forest. Our 65-ton Crusader charges forward, opening up on the Thor with lasers and a leg-mounted streak SRM launcher, saving the other leg for a physical attack. Twenty LRMs fly off to the north, targeting the distant Daishi there. One of the Crusader's lasers grazes the Thor's right leg, while the LRMs impact. The streak SRMs beep negatively to indicate a failure to lock on, then don't fire at all. As designed, although still disappointing. TheMix clangs the Crusader's leg against the Thor's, both mechs losing armor, though the Thor's left leg is looking a little beat up.

El Guapo turns left as well, holding one of the extended-range PPCs to let the Marauder cool off while the pulse lasers, the other PPC and the gauss rifle continue firing. Concentrating, the mechwarrior drills the Thor in the right torso section with a PPC blast, punching through the armor and sending the heat readings spiking. "Nice." our mechwarrior comments, even as a PPC shot removes almost all the right arm armor.

Lich adds to the party by grazing the 70-tonner's head with a blast from the Griffin's PPC. Even the Kurita Awesome to the north helps out with a little center torso damage.

Moley jumps west along the river, getting a couple of good laser shots on the Nobori-Nin's left side armor. This distracts the 50-tonner long enough for Siljanus to fire both of the Mackie's PPCs and the gauss rifle at it - both PPC shots hit the right torso, punching through the armor and blowing out a jump jet along with some engine shielding, while the gauss slug jams in the mech's hip, severely impairing its mobility. The 50-tonner returns fire at the Mackie, taking a good chunk off the armor on the left arm and left leg with LBX slugs and a PPC blast. Miraculously, Moley's Thunderbolt avoids all return fire, but this occupies the mechwarrior's attention and he's unable to land the punches he intends. Still, the Nobori-Nin is in trouble, having had to take a knee.

Leraje and WestOrEast focus fire on the Mad Cat that has crested the hill to the south, stripping away armor with laser and PPC fire. Stefan adds a few LRMs to the mix as well, spreading them out across the thick armor. WestOrEast smirks as a gauss slug impacts the hill in front of the Hatamoto-Hi instead of the leg, but a series of bright flashes from a pulse laser and some LRMs take armor off the side torso sections. Still, this exchange forces the Mad Cat to the ground.

The Kurita forces report continuing to engage the clan units to the north, with some success. The guy driving the Warhammer seems particularly happy with his PPC marksmanship, but then starts complaining about pulse lasers and damaged heat sinks. They also report losing basically the rest of their remote drones

We could eliminate (well put in a spirited fight anyway) those two mechs in the north while those mechs in the south advance then pivot south staying behind the hills and hit them in the rear...if there's anyone left. Are the Kurita forces really unavailable or can one or two swing down so we have a pincer of our own?
That's my intention with focusing on the Thor, yeah. He is the most dangerous combatant up there, and surprisingly fragile... at least for Clan standards.

So close.

Did my decoy fail to blow up?

Ah, cool.

So, the Thor being an ACE, does that mean we will get to fire at where he is right now and then he moves, or does he move before we fire?

He'll get to move before you guys fire, so feel free to put in conditional orders as far as firing is concerned.

Ok, that's good. We are making some real progress now.

Nobori is looking like it's in bad shape now. That Black Hawk scares me, it's looking to be in range of a devastating alpha strike.

Being on a higher level means you ignore all cover from a lower level, yeah?

And another question: can I make it to 3420 with a jump or run?

Yes and yes, although the run will have your back towards basically every clan mech to the southwest.

So I guess I can try to limp my way to some kind of cover for my Kurita Warhammer but…

The Kurita pilot’s mech has taken damage and perhaps should disengage for a bit but he thinks that those greed driven mercenaries with that ridiculous name for a company are fighting hard and he could do no less so…

Warhammer-K to 2208 (does that wreck block my way?). Targets Mad Cat in hex 1611

Do I have enough MPs for my Mackie to get to 2624 turn and fire at that Black Hawk in 2627? If not I’ll risk moving to any clear hex that gets me a shot.
Black lives matter!

Wise words of warning from Smoove B: Oh, how you all laughed when I warned you about the semen. Well, who's laughing now?

My Kurita P. Hawk will move to southeast and fire at the Man-o-War or the Thor, whichever still has its back turned. If both or neither, at the Thor.

My H-H will move to 3731 and fire at the Noburi if possible, then the Mad Cat at 2429, or finally, then at the Loki
