SM skipped new item yesterday for some reason =P

E-M day or L-M day? Yes, I know that this thread is about the best builds in the game but those few words that I showed in the quote in this post really made me curious about that since I think my drone's the next E-M lineup to be added... If there's going to be any new additions to the game from now on, I mean.

I'm a backfire item magnet. I don't know why but it likely has something to do with the fact that I keep dying.

I blame Ramboy for this.

In this thread, I’ll post what I believe to be the best builds in the game (meta builds). Everyone is welcome to post and debate meta builds. META = Most Effective Tactics Available (i.e. what's

I think 2 resist drainers is unnecessary - 1 really is the max. With 2, you waste 2 hits shooting them off (versus doing heat damage) and you lose hp twice. I think only having 1 is probably best buil

That build is fine, but yes, weaker to energy versus 4.1k hp version. Reason why I think mercy version is better is that it's energy free with no backfire and higher damage. I found that for this buil

L-Ms are released every odd # Saturday (so 1st/3rd/5th). Sometimes it doesn't happen for some reason (usually around holidays). E-Ms tend to be released via portals (I think it's every other Wed or Thur, can't remember off the top of my head)

Oh, I was just referring to how monkey torsos are no longer the best in game. This balance, things only got buffed. And on your point of no more new items, SM skipped new item yesterday for some reason =P

This thread is designed for the absolute best builds in the game, and I feel pretty confident saying that monkey no longer is best torso in game.

Ah, got it. I understand now. My bad, I think my post it is irrelevant then. It should be deleted. 🙃 But yes, Vest is doing great.

"No longer the best" as in "find a new torso" or "no longer the best" as in "now there are some torsos that are equal to the monkeys"?

No longer the best as in MPV and LPV > Monkeys

Great, and I had used my LPV to myth something that was in META.  Just great.

In my opinion: if you buff something too much, you nerf other things.  This is an indirect nerf then.  All that time and effort I spent working on items that were META at the time, now gone to waste.  Great.

I'm trying not to be frustrated, but I spent a lot of time researching and trying to align my stuff with META so that I could try not to waste time improving items that have no future.

When will this be updated. Also, can't all builds with a basalt dissolver use the new and better L-M dissolver?

Hopefully this week, sorry work has been busy for me

Is this meta?
Can this get rank1?

HP/energy resist is a little low. It could get rank 1, but not meta

@CleverName hey I noticed recently it looked like you were testing a heat hugger using molten platinum vest.  Is that what you were doing?  How did it go?  And do you think that configuration will become META ?

Yes, the heat build I play is the best build in the game that I've seen so far. I'll post later tonight.

1922248015_supermechs421.thumb.JPG.859d5e9f35ce32d7569d256d8b358d21.JPGmaybe 2 of the L-M dissolvers if they were in WU. I feel like this works better then what you currently run

Yeah I thought about using a resist drainer, but don't think it is better. HP is already low and bf really hurts at this level. Additionally, the resist drainer is kind of useless if you can't get it off within 3 turns; for heat huggers generally you want to keep opponent at certain range and having to use a resist drainer kind of hinders that (as well as having the overheat threat). 

Adding resist drainer would also hurt elemental stats; I don't think the original heat hugger loses to any energy builds; this new one could lose a few. Same for heat/boilers.

I think it would be a very strong alternative, but imo not the best heat build.

Best Energy

Awesome!  I suspected that config would become best (but I expected the torso would be Rusty Energy).   (See my reply on January 2: I also expected Bulldog, not Lightning Cutter).

Now I can officially REALLY be SAWZ-ALL by using saws in almost all of my mechs.

(I am named for the SawzAll Reciprocating Saw, though: at the time I didn't know there were saws in this game.)

Thanks for all your hard work and help, @CleverName !  You rock!

Besides the physical section, almost nothing is relevant here. 

Just rename the thread "my favorite builds (of which, many have never been in the arena)", thatd be more accurate.

 

👍

All builds seen here have been in the arena by at least me 🙂 

I haven’t really updated this thread fully except best builds. I’ll do that when I have the time

      Similar to the old forum, feel free to ask me anything. (I do reserve the right to not respond to some questions/give vague answers where applicable.)
      Some quick FAQs I usually get:
      Q: How much have you spent on SM?
      A: 5 figures USD.
      Q: Where do you live?
      A: NY, USA.
      Q: How old are you?
      A: Mid 20s.
      Q: Where do you work/what do you do?
      A: I work in private equity for a firm on Wall Street. Private Equity is basically investing in companies, improving them, and then selling them (so basically investment banking + consulting). Feel free to learn more about it online!
      Q: What's your name?
      A: Sorry, I'm trying to keep my identity secret. (So that is why sometimes I may not answer some questions too clearly.)
      Q: Do you have a YouTube channel?
      A: Yes, you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/c/CleverNameSM
      Q: Can you give me tokens/items/accounts?
      A: No.
      Q: Are you a SM/TS/GG/Forum Mod/Dev/Admin?
      A: No.
      Q: Can you help me with builds?
      A: I prefer giving build advice to Rank 1 players, as that's where I have the most experience. There should be a Build Help section on this forum; I'd recommend you go there to ask for help. I made a topic on Current Meta Builds - I always play the best build in the game.
      Q: Why do you play SM/why did you spend so much?
      A: SuperMechs for me is something I enjoy playing. I enjoy playing it not so much for the technical aspects, but it’s more of a nostalgic game for me as I played it when I was a bit younger and really enjoyed the game (and with nostalgia, comes happiness). I don’t remember why I quit, but when I found the game again, it’s really been great. I also really enjoy the community here, being able to be creative with builds, and having a close fight every now and then. =P
