All firing phase effects resolve at the end of the firing phase, so the smoke won't show up until every other shot by everyone has been fired.

Ok, good.

Hm, if my tank buddy went over the hill, it'd just barely be in range of targeting the Manticore, yes? What's my tank's gunnery score? If he is veteran, it might be worth it, that's three PPCs.

Long Tom explosive round for 3522, hoping to catch the Vedettes if they head around that way. If I understand correctly, I could not move and go hull down for additional defense, but not impede my firing? If so, I'll do that and try to target the Drillson in 4619. If I'm calculating correctly, it's not ridiculously harder to hit than the Spartan when range penalties are taken into effect, is it?

Correct and correct - the Drillson moved a lot faster but the range penalties going from long to medium make up for it.

Thank you.

Not moving. 4x ErPPC @ Griffin 3610. Buddy will keep on slacking for now.

Sorry Nick but I've got to go out of town by noon today EST and be back (and have access to my PC) till sometime Monday late afternoon if my transportation all works out.

Can you or someone else take control for me till then, and I'll resume control (if still playing and alive) once I'm home, please?

Again sorry guys.

Mackie moves to hex 1028 with the intent of engaging the Shadow Hawk or Hatchetman on the edge of the map in the future. My Drillson stays put for now. For targeting purposes can it use targeting data from any friendly that has eyes on a hostile unit? Would like to put it to use where needed.

Thanks!

I'll take over for Akalon, at least for this turn. Now it's time to dance, puppet, dance, clear open a spot for me to be promoted to! *cough*

Move Akalon's Vulkan to 3328 and fire at the lightest unit in range. 4 Medium Lasers should peel some armor off of that. The Drillson will move to 3629 and fire the LRM's at the wounded Griffon currently at 3611.

I'm going to stay put again. Now that they're closer, I'll fire my LRMs, my AC/10, and three large lasers (which I believe should be 46 heat, bumping me up by two more heat). Since I have multi-tasker I'll scatter the shots among the vehicles in range depending upon what makes sense in terms of what other people are also firing at.

My L'il Behemoth buddy will climb the hill and open fire as well.

Looks like you're *just* out of LOS - the hex in 3115 blocks it (the line passes between two hexes and it's defender's choice). You could go 4028 and fire large pulse lasers at one of the hovercraft next to the Vedette, or continue to 4129 and use LRMs to target those.

Looks like LOS is blocked to the Drillson by the very edge of hex 4625. You can still fire at the Spartan just fine or move for a better angle.

Boo!

Guess I'll move to 4028 then. I'd still prefer to hold the LRMs until things are getting closer to the sweet spot for range for me.

"Here they come!"

WestOrEast's line of sight is obscured slightly by an AC/2 round dinging off the hill in front of his mech and kicking up a small cloud of dust. Still, it lets her see enough - "Jesper, back the hell up, you're going to get ripped to shreds!" our mechwarrior tells our Phoenix Hawk pilot, watching with some discouragement as a Crusader-launched LRM cloud blasts chunks off the Phoenix Hawk's armor. One of SgtSoldier's lasers connects solidly with the distant LRM Carrier, burning armor off the left side. The vehicle returns fire, sending LRMs careening in at the Phoenix Hawk. The anti-missile system engages, shooting a few out of the air, but a substantial number land, causing the mech to rock unsteadily as it moves forward. SgtSoldier compensates for the shifted center of mass, however, keeping the mech upright.

Siljanus snaps off a gauss shot at the Hatchetman advancing to the west, spanging it at an oblique angle off the right torso armor. "Yeah, or at least move faster." he adds to WestOrEast's comment. The Mackie's cockpit rocks as a small salvo of LRMs from the Shadow Hawk connect with the head. "Sonofabitch." Our mechwarrior comments.

El Guapo designates multiple targets through the Dire Wolf's targeting system and opens fire, scoring hits on every one, hoping for mobility kills. However, the damage is pretty minimal, mostly just armor melting and peeling off under laser and autocannon fire.

Leraje, meanwhile, continues firing at the Griffin he'd previously targeted. This time, the PPC fire is a lot more effective, melting most of the remaining leg armor off, as well as most of the left torso armor, causing the 55 ton mech to stumble again. This time, combined with LRMs from TheMix's buddy Manticore, the mechwarrior can't keep the mech up and drops to the ground.

Lich scores the first kill on our end, drilling a distant LRM Carrier with the Timber Wolf's large lasers, the beams burning through the right side of the vehicle, then connecting with something inside that causes it to disappear in a fireball.

Isgrimnur and his Manticore buddy engage the Spartan to the north, but it's awfully mobile for an 80-ton mech and avoids most of the weapons fire - what it doesn't avoid, its anti-missile system shoots down.

Am I missing the movement modifier for the Drillson in 4619?

Explosive round in 4724

Shoot at the Drillson if there is LOS and not crazy movement modifier, or the Spartan if not.

Gah, those Vedettes are shitty, but enough AC/5s rolling attacks is going to chip us to death.

Watch out Phoenix Hawk friend, that's a lot of damage very early!

I'm of course going to 3029. The Archer is just outside medium range (from 3029) for my ERLLs and LRMs, yeah?

Damn, if you can't step on them, heavy tanks are silly tough!

Is the artillery at 3013, 3018 and 3522 falling this round? Because those would be amazing strikes.

Hey Guapo, I'm thinking of putting a couple of ERMLs and an LRM on the Drillson that has its right/rear turned towards us, can you put a couple of medium guns there to help? It's "only" got 19 points of armor on the right side to chew through, but I'd need to land everything to get that in one go.

Archer is definitely at long range (I count 19 hexes)
4617 and 4013 are landing this turn, with the understanding that they may scatter some distance in a random direction
If your line of fire passes through 3122, 3222 or 3322, you can't target the vehicles in 3221 (height 1 unit at level 0 adjacent to a level 1 hex, meaning LOS is blocked). Similarly, the Vedette in 3121 can't be targeted if the attack passes through 3021 or 3122, and same goes for the 1418 Vedette. The exception being indirect-fire LRM attacks.

You had two 9+ shots at a Drillson hovertank, and both missed. 9+ isn't the best odds, 1/4 chance (66, 56, 65, 46, 64, 45, 54, 36, 63). This round, though, you'll have plenty of close targets to choose from.

Ow.

Alright- So I'm gonna try to use my jumpjets to move towards a slightly more advantageous position- namely 1526. Gonna take a little bit of a potshot at that crusader on 1511.

I'd like my Drillson buddy to start shooting at that vedette on 1314.

Brief recap please (from the last time we did this)...

Movement is good, right? It makes one harder to be hit? But if we don't want to actually move to another location, we can "shuffle" in our current cell? Or should I always be trying to move? If my movement is 5/8, then I'd want to try to move 5 so that they have +2 to hit me, and I only have +1 to hit them due to my walking?

Ending up in 4129 will break LoS from the units on the east side of the map, correct? But I'll still have visibility to some of the enemy units (falcon, griffin, ???).

For those with experience, it actually looks like moving up one to 3928 would put the Griffin at 14, which is medium range for my large lasers and LRMs. Would we be better served by my going after the Griffin, or should I try and take out a vehicle or two? I'm not very good at figuring out how much of a threat the vehicles are.

Nick, what's my LoS situation on 3121 and 3221? If I move back into some cover at 4129 will I be able to target them? That would give me those 2 targets and the Falcon. That should be enough. Assuming that's an option, I'll go with that approach and target whichever ones make the most sense.

3121 yes, 3221, no (due to it being adjacent to 3322). If there was a mech in 3221, you'd have LOS on it, but vehicles are shorter.

Okay, so I'll still have the Vedette and the Falcon. That seems like enough targets. I'm assuming that it's unlikely that 2 LP lasers and LRMs are going to be able to take out more targets anyway. So I'll take whichever target is juicier.

Movement is good. Shuffling won't help though - the modifiers are in hexes moved. At least if I am remembering correctly.

Exactly. As they say, "speed is life". Or, in the case of Lich and those guys up on the central hill, heavy smoke is a good substitute, so dropping some Long Tom smoke rounds is not a bad option. Partial cover is good if you can get it, while going out of line of sight entirely so you can only be shot at by a limited number of bad guys is even better.
