Specific pilots for mechs

Unread postby nobaka » February 1st, 2009, 5:56 pm

Does anyone else use a particular pilot for specific mechs? My usual lineup:

2K SP-1 - Archer
2K - Shirou
BlackComb - Caster
BlackSelena - Lancer
Iris - Rin
Cymbidium - Saber
Windom B - Sion
Vista - Arcueid
Primula - Akiha/Caster/Rin
Vienna - KOS-MOS

You get the idea. Also, any 'finishing' moves you like to use? I'm getting very fond Windom B's grab as a finisher. :')

My KOS-MOS pilot is multi-purpose, so no, I'm not picky when setting specific pilots to certain mechs. It slows down multiplayer games to switch out, as well.

As for finishing moves, I don't really have any in general, as I tend to stick with what works. What works tends to be a superlaser to the face, though.

I don't mean it needs to be an exclusive pairing, but yeah, during multiplayer I'll probably stick to Arc, Archer, or none.

Nono, Saber must go with BlackComb, no other MS is worthy of the pure epic-ness of "ekusu--KALIBAAA----!!!"

I see your point. Although the wave-motion nature of Excalibur is mirrored nicely in the aura blade. Besides, that works with anyone who's got a superlaser.

I use the cats for grunts. Or Ryuusoul. :|

Well, unless Ultimate Knight officially became freeware, I'm sorry to say I wouldn't be able to assign specific pilots to mecha I've never even seen (aside from stilll images). I know I'd assign the magical girl pilot add-ons to magical (or otherwise) girl-esque mecha, assign more annoying or dues ex machina-type characters to the most powerful mecha, and so on... My own Worm-ish pilot would be assigned to more grunt-like mecha like the Millenium. More complainer-type or generic/movie extra-ish characters would get the other grunt mecha.

Primula's a magical girl, Mill-B's a grunt, and Vienna's a stylish gunslinger type. YSK has pictures of all three on the official UKWXP site.

Well, I was generalizing because I don't have it. I just have BFW and the trial version of UKW.
