    As is often the case, you are clueless.

    I had a Commsndo, Blackjack, Shadowhawk and Vindicator. Getting better mechs is deliberately much harder in my game.

    - 5 parts needed
    - No salvage from CT kills
    - much greater repair times and running costs, so you canít just go max salvage every mission or youíll quickly go bankrupt.
    - many new canon variants make it harder to complete a full chassis

    On top of that the increased sight ranges make longe range mechs like the Catapult far more dangerous.

    Your SRM and laser spam is meaningless here.

    It may have been backing up your saves if you have steamcloud enabled.

    What's that shit about ?
    The default fit is terrible, Assault Glacial slow, has one PPC and loads of MLs, melts after one salvo and, um.
    Am I missing something ? Should i refit it or just bin it.
    Please don't teach me what to do with my pc.

    Its one of those mechs you use because it looks cool.
    2-3 PPC's and some JJ's and it'll be good on cold planets.

    If you are good at keeping it back as a sniper platform, it will do fine with low armor.
    Or you can just go LL's on it, if your not into the knockdown business.
    Not to mention all Medium Lasers. Their range isn't bad. And very heat/weight efficient.

    it's not that slow and actually fairly well armored for a 3025'er. it's also rather deadly up close and, in TT it can drop it's gun for extra kinky rip-and-tear action.

    I suppose you haven't seen Banshee yet

    BLR works alright as a jumping CQB medlaser boat.

    You can make just about anything work fine, game's been shockingly good at flexibility in my experience.

    Grasshopper MVP though.

    Always refit unless you're going for some sort of challenge run. Swagmaster has been a fucking MVP for me, no JJs needed.

    This, if you're on a ML and SRM power trip it's just fine, it's not like their range is terrible and the speed works just fine.

    Medium Heroes:
    Shadow Hawk/Griffin/Wolverine

    Heavy Fighters:
    Orion K model is the king! (1V is just as suitable)
    Jaeger JM6-A easiest heavy missile boat you can get. 4x LRM15 4tw. (No point "upgrading" to an Catapult)
    Thunderbolts also common and very good, use those while you chase Orion parts.

    Assault Masterrace:
    King Crab! Lots of hard points for any weapon class. Is slow, so it can do fine as a tanking/lrm platform.
    Highlander! For me this is the #1 assault Brawler. IMO 733 > 733P since it can use an AC10
    Stalker, your goto assault LRM boat. 4x LRM15 with enough ammo for everything (I use 7tons of ammo).

    Honorable Mentions:
    Grashopper, just overall good mech.
    Zeus, love its design, good hardpoints. Think I used 2xAC5 + LRM20? Superb range and mobility.
    Battlemaster/Banshee for Medium Laser spamming.

    5S thunderbolts, K Orions, C1 Catapults (fuck the jager-cult, they look awful), the 55 tonners (Griffin, Wolverine, Shadow Hawk) Grasshoppers and Highlanders. the Awesomes are too hot, the Zeus is too lightly armoured and the Banshee is a "guns optional" styled mech.

    edit : and the Stalker, it's so damn obvious it's barely worth mentioning, it's a legged gun-turret.
