We are very happy to announce the experimental release of the 64-bit MechWarrior Online client tomorrow, included with Thursday's patch!
The most important result of this change...
The Skye Rangers Brigade has a long tradition of service and loyalty to House Steiner through four long and grueling Succession Wars spanning hundreds of years. Once again civil war threatens the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere. Our Mechwarriors have been called home, allies will be chosen, enemies vanquished, and battles fought on distant worlds under far off suns...the Federation of Skye will now decide its destiny...
Welcome to the Home Base of the Skye Rangers, located on the dark and beautiful planet Summer, within the Federation of Skye.
We will be having a 2 week cease fire with Clan Wolf. The main line of Clan Wolf is wanting to concentrate more on Jade Falcon. We will still be defending against any incursions by non-participating Clan Wolf units but taking no offensive maneuvers into Clan Wolf territory. The FRR non-aggression pact may now be defunct as the majority of other Lyran units were against it. I will keep you apprised of any further developments.
The Knights of Summer regrouped around the massive overhang of the
Merchant Lords landing pad. They had no assault mechs in their midst, as
the group was pulled together as a rapid response unit. Against 3
Battlemasters with LRM loadouts, it looked pretty bad for the 5 Mechs.
The entire local garrison had been destroyed one by one by the
spotter/LRM teams. In their current location Direct fire weapons were
the only real threat.
CP Leonardo Leonardo saw the spotting Jenner when he peaked to shoot a
NARC at the group. That was the opening he needed, with a quiet command
he got the 3 mediums and 2 lights to pounce. This left the lumbering
assault mechs easy prey for the swift moving group, following the
Corporals Wolverine 6K they got in close and fought through the rain of
missles and laser fire.
Col. Ferrous Idaho was deployed with his command group, the Iron
Knights, to protect the central commerce district of Thilldore III. When
he saw the limping and smoking mechs his spirits lifted, 5 mechs left
to garrison the Merchant Lords citadel, and 5 came back.
