This subforum is dedicated to Armored Core V, which is a unique environment for the average gamer. Everything related to the game can be discussed here (and likely has been at some point). This community has been around since the Beta of this game, and many of it's secrets have been uncovered here.
Posting mech builds is approved, but only if it is unfinished. They can be exposed to the scrutiny of the community, ultimately improving it (should tips and opinions be heeded). Finished builds are reserved for posting in portfolios, which you can earn if you become a full member. A portfolio is a lovely subforum all to your own in which you may post your favorite builds to your hearts content. Think of it as a showcase.
When speaking of builds, elements of design, or generally anything, pride about originality blended with functionality is highly preferred. We encourage the respecting others' opinions. Refrain from criticising pointlessly (e.g. X sucks, use Y, or don't use that) as this detracts from mature conversation. Give reasoned suggestions, keep it clean and calm, chill with the community and make some friends. We're pretty relaxed about grammar and funnies, but remember to correct yourself if you do something totally imbecilic. Further guidelines and rules can be found in our Etiquette thread (which isn't up yet, but oh well).
Some of the more popular topics are weapon mechanics, special stats, and how game mechanics such as conquest function. There’s a thread for vids, room for complaints, and a special niche in our hearts for rants (cohesive ones…) involving gameplay or otherwise. If you're looking for gameplay advice or want to find a team or opponent, then you've come to the right place. We especially enjoy refining less-used or otherwise unknown things about ACV for the community's benefit. Theories about intriguing properties are always good topics.
If you can't think of anything, you can try starting a thread on one of these:
Who around here is looking for some fights?
Can I join an active team?
How do I get started?
I've come back after hearing about the patch(es), what's changed?
Opinions on the story/missions
Different piloting techniques
An AC setup
Player discussion (be wary of tearing other players down as it creates flame wars)
Custom Territory layouts
Uniqueness of numbers for Team IDs... (like 42, 69, 00, etc.)
