First Design Challenge
Message Author
Post: #1

The Challenge:
Must use the Ettin hand weapon. Can be used on the left, right, or wielded simultaneously.

Specifics:
No overweight ACs.
No underweight ACs.
The only allowable legs are: the Cougar, LH99XS, LH81AP, LR04-Gazelle, CR-LRJ90A2, Gavial2, CR-LT78A, and LN02-Sealion.
Must have a back weapon, but no Nymphes, 69Ms, 69ROs, or 69RAs.
Must have extensions or inside weapons.

Also, I'd like to make it clear that although we are designing an AC with a (relatively) crappy part as the centerpiece, these ACs must be battle-worthy. That is, while they are wielding less-than-top-tier parts, the total summation of these parts must produce an AC that is still viable for play.

Designers will be given until the end of the month to submit their designs here. Post your entries in a reply to this thread. After that time, a poll shall be made for everyone to vote on the ACs they liked.

Good luck everyone!

Well, I'll start off by saying that the Ettin is truly a monster in attack power, but meh against a real person who knows what they are doing. So without anymore distractions, let me show you what I've got:

<span style='font-size:10pt;line-height:100%'>Bellerophon</span>

Frame and Tuning:
S4 | U4 | XS | 90A2
0,0,0,10,0 | 0,0,0,10,0 | 0,0,0,10,0 | 0,0,0,10,0
Internals and Tuning:
Vulture2 | F73H | Kongoh | R92
0,10,0,0 | 0,0,10 | 0,0,10
Armaments and Countermeasures:
- | SS2 | Siren2 | Siren2 | Ettin | Nix | Wraith | -
Optional Enhancements:
Amino, ES, SS, EC, Kissyoh, Codon, Marishi
Paint Scheme:
General: Red Sample Color
Weapon Color:
General: Red

Alright, so basically it's a boost hopper. Not much else you can do on the Kongoh... Vulture2's there for some low charge drain while still keeping a bit of mobility. The 90A2 was chosen for it's low drain as well, while U4 was picked because of its awesome defense. Still, energy resistance gets left way behind in this... it's almost on the level of a light to midweight, which is always a bummer, and it gets even more pronounced with the side shields equipped (I already tried the Iwato, it just didn't work).

The dual Siren2s were put more for looks than anything else. It helps with the stability though, always nice to have that. Tongue

This AC has enough firepower to down most anything (including a tank, since most tanks are stacked heavy on shell and not energy def; however I am aware that some exceptions do apply though), so there's not really a need for extensive back weaponry. You just have to careful on the trigger, you really can't afford to miss and waste precious shots.

Let me give it a shot...

Head: H81S4
Core: CRONUS
Arms: 82SL
Legs: DINGO2

Booster: Vulture2
FCS: F73H
Generator: G91
Radiator: ANANDA
Ext: SS2
Inside: None

Back R: RA3
Back L: none
Arm R: ETTIN
Arm L: R3
Hanger R: Wraith
Hanger L: Wraith

Ops:
Amino
69ES
EC
L+
Phage or Codon
Golgi
Marishi


I wanted to be original with my design... pero ang LR talaga... meh. There aren't a lot of designs to choose from to allow originality. It's so stupid.

Anyways, eto ang design ko. I equipped the ETTIN on an AC that's relatively speedy para madaling ilapit sa kalaban para gamitin yung ETTIN. R3 is there for general-purpose shooting. Yung SS2, pwedeng i-drop if more speed is needed. Low drain yung frame and high-capacity yung generator para pwede mag boost around while firing consecutive shots of ETTIN. Dual wraiths are in their to finish off whatever AP the enemy has.

P.S. How will the ACs be judged?
P.P.S. ETTIN sucks.

EDIT: Oops di pala pwede Dingo2. Hahah sige I'll edit this nalang some time this week.

Whoa, its already over? May ihahabol pa sana ako eh.

Oh well, as long as i'm already here.


Mjolnir

Frame

DRONE (50 cooling, 50 energy defense)
C89E (50 cooling, 50 energy defense)
A72F (100 aiming accuracy)
COUGAR (50 cooling, 50 shell defense)

Internal and motive parts

GULL (100 booster heat)
VOLUTE2
G91 (100 energy output)
R92 (100 cooling)

Weapons

FUNI
DRYAD2
ETTIN
HP

Optionals

069ES
071EC
079L+
GOLGI
PHAGE
MARISHI

colors - general
B - 30/30/30
A - 100/100/100
O - 20/20/20
D - 200/200/0
J - 80/80/80

The attack plan here is quite simple. Use the HP for weak foes and the DRYAD+FUNI for airborne ones. For harder targets, use the ETTIN on them. If there's anything still standing, then use the HP to sweep up the remains. Pwede rin vice-versa, HP muna then ETTIN to finish them off.


Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave, may live forever.

Puchit~~
Ipopost ko pa naman yung sa akin...

Anyways...

AC: Nephilliam
Serial Code: ExA-010-NPH

CR-H065R2 [0-2-4-4-0]
YC07-CRONUS [0-2-4-4-0]
CR-A94FL [0-2-4-4-0]
LH05-COUGAR [0-0-1-1-8]

CR-B81 [0-5-0-5]
CR-G91 [0-10-0]
ANANDA [0-0-10]

MF02-VOLUTE
CR-I78R2, E02-GAR
WB04H-NYMPHE2, WR03R-SIREN
WH12PL-ETTIN, CR-WL88S2
WH06PL-ORC, WL14LB-ELF2

O01-AMINO, CR-O69ES, CR-O69SS, CR-75LA, CE-79L+, O02-ORGANELLE, O06-PHAGE, MARISHI

015-020-030-200-100
010-000-000-000-050
015-020-030-050-050

As to what I remember... Volute has 12 Locks, making it best used with both Nymphe2 and Gar, but if your target has lock jammers, make sure that the lock i at a minimum of 4 to get a good effect.

The 88S2 shotgun is chosen to provide back to Ettin while it's charging. I find a good weapon too, because of its attack and spread.

Orc serves as an extension weapon, to still let the AC attack with plasma even after ejecting the Ettin. 78R2 is a back up weapon to be combined with Elf2 at melee range. The Siren is just there to enhance radar range and ECMresistance.

This is more of a mid-range combat AC. I liked this design so much, I decided to make it part of my ExA Series...

I left whether or not to continue this contest up to Nix. It seems that if we get around one or two more entries, we'll be able to make a poll, then everyone can vote on the design they liked the most. PM him for more details.

Like Grimoire said, when two more designs get posted here, then we'll start the judging (by poll).
