The other day I was playing with a Lightning Attack Hovercraft on my side in a battle in MegaMekNET. Since that campaign is set in 3025, having a LosTech hovercraft with medium pulse lasers was something I wanted to protect if I could. Plus you have those two one-shot SRMs. I was rushing past a target and I had a chance to fire the right-facing SRM at a distant heavy unit that had moved towards me. I needed a 9 to hit. I got lucky, and hit the target, which was taking damage elsewhere as well, and did some good with the weapon. But I was really tempted to hold off on the SRM4 and hope for a better shot against a better target. Holding off for the cool play.
Have you ever noticed a tendency to play BattleTech for the cool play, rather than the smart one?
