Some may agree or disagree, but do keep it civil.
Rovo has some valid points, but he missed the interpretation of how things are.Heat isn’t weak, it is just weaker then energy.
Heat works pretty good against some build, but it is really lacking on the 1-2 range:
Energy has last words, epic-myth push wepon.
Phis has terror cry, epic-myth push wepon.
Heat has none… it relyes on either redoking or abomination, both L-M items, hard to find.
this puts heat in a very bad situation against high heat/cooldown zakares dual anihilations, nighteagle builds. They simply shred them to bits.
Also, against energy users, all heat wepons, epic-myth, except desolation, are energy dependant.
I will tell you this, an energy free heat build, with 2 magmas, redocking, and desolation, will lose to 2bunkershell, 2 valiant,buldog build…that is a fact.
In my opinion, beeing a allround player of heat,phis,energy, i can only say this, energy has all the wepons needed to build a perfect mech.
heat : 468/172 cooldown
this build covers just about evry range from 1-8, with incredible dmg potential, i have seen 1k dmg only from 2 valiant shots and drone. While beein hit by dual bunkers and drone, i have seen 1.3k easy.
now the best heat build:energy free.
2 magma blast
heat: 401/277 cooldown
Can you guess the outcome?
The enrgy build can be beat, but using specific counterbuild that leaves you open to heat/phis.
While the energy build, it can strolle around, killing pretty much most of the builds out there.
PS: want to bet the heat mech doesnt get pass round 6, no matter the starting range? and it wont even get to overheat once the enrgy build
