First of all start your patch ASAP this one comes in at a whopping 7Gb.

Biggest change is an update to textures on older mechs thus the 7Gb.

Also the Archer is released to so keep your heads down LRMs and SRMs will be flying.

New game mode domination (capture the point)

For a complete list of changes see the patch notes below:

So far the game forums are starting to get whining and crying threads about the LRM Beasts and Domination mode.

So far I've found LRM Archers nothing new to worry over. Very few LRM pilots have learned the value of repositioning, maintaining a barrage while on the move, or even dumbfiring. Heck, most don't think to even bring a TAG with them so ECM is easily a bane. SRM/Laser Archers on the other hand, they can be a hazard, especially the more devious ones that run the ECM version of that mech to sneak up on you.

As for Domination, its fairly fun but its also a lot faster of a game than most. Most matches I've been in for this version haven't lasted longer than 6-7 minutes, which I think is in part to the closeness of the drop locales and the fact that we're now fighting over a single point instead of multiples for other game versions. The speed of the cap also means you can rarely afford to delay or sneak around before stepping into heavy combat, so theres a lost less trading opportunities available prior to the actual engagement.
