My assault is a bit of a tank at this point...you were right, buffing repair mods is one of the best things to do right off the bat. Gets you back in the action really quick, and you can often just sit and absorb damage until a teammate shows up when someone tries to chase you down.

From what I'm seeing, Infiltrator with HEAT Cannon and maneuverability mods is the go-to competitive setup. Huge up front damage, and you can work corners and snapshoot to take slower mechs out.

On another note, I watched a competitive MW:O vid...it looks terrible. There's a tactic called "mech bowling" where you just run into each other and knock each other down.

Last I checked, you can no longer tackle a mech in MWO, unless they finally fixed it. IT was a fun tactic in a light, but if you took the Dragon, the 2nd heaviest, it was bowling. Not too fair.

When does Hawken go open beta?

the next and final closed beta is Nov 20th - Dec 6th, not sure the schedule between then and 12/12/12.

Can't wait to see what else comes out in the next beta, there is so much stuff to be released as they get the core balances and engine/UI stuff out of the way. Apparently there is massive changes coming to the current progression system, I expect to see a huge number of changes in the next version
