As far as I have seen in the raids the physical mech users are completely disadvantaged.
There is no way for a physical mech to complete the later raids perfectly.
Therefore I would suggest a separation in the raids into 4 different competitions.
One for energy focused mechs, one for heat focused mechs, one for physical focused mechs and one for mixed mechs.
The raids would still be the same for everyone but in the raid menu there would be 4 differently framed raids displayed - one for each type + one for mixed types.
Then players could choose which one to take and in those raids only weapons and legs of that type would be allowed to be used.
E.g. in the physical challenge you can only equip physical weapons, drones, hooks and legs. If your mech has a different type of equipment than the challenge allows you cannot start it.
To point it out: Type restriction would only apply to weapons, drones, hooks and legs!
Torsos, modules, charge engine and teleporter would not be affected.
Also every player could only participate in the mixed type challenge and one of the specialized type challenges.
The other two specialized challenges would be locked when choosing the first raid of a specialzed raid.
With this separation into 4 types of raids the physical mech users would also have chances to win as they could compete with other physical mechs only.
And the mixed typed raid would still allow a global competition amongst all players.
So do you think this idea would be viable or have arguments against it?
