One of the biggest obstacles for new MechWarrior Online players comes in the form of the absolute trashing they tend to get when they play solo and find themselves against an even remotely organized team. It can be a frustrating experience, as many tend to charge in on their own relying on false advantages like speed and armor and get obliterated by focused fire in mere seconds.
Piranha Games just tried to help by releasing a quite useful video starring MechWarrior veterans Phil and Daeron from the No Guts No Galaxy blog as they give some basic survival pointers. Aspiring MechWarriors should really heed the advice, but keep expectations of success in check, because most of the times when you’re by yourself against an organized team there’s only so much you can do. The best way to enjoy the game is still to find a team of like-minded players yourself in order to tackle any challenge.
That said, if you really really want to play the “Lone wolf” you can enjoy the video below. It’s really good advice.
