Usually when we at Skye Command award our pilots a medal it is usually for an accumulated kill total. It is rare I have the honor to award our highest honor/medal, the Commonwealth Medal of Honor (MoH), for valorous combat prowess. LT-GEN Cipher won a hard fought engagement while in a Spider against 5 to 1 odds...pulling victory from the jaws of defeat...Accordingly, I offer SSG CaptCoffee's rendition of the battle for your enjoyment...
Hi Arturus Steiner. I recently had an unusual battle with cipher42
in which I feel most pilots would not have been able to overcome the
odds. He was the only mech alive against 5 enemies and he took them all
down. The screenshot is in my photo folder "cipher victory". Here is the
The Battle of Alpine Peaks
'Twas a cold day as usual on the frosty hills of alpine peaks. A full
12 mechs stood towering on the top looking down on what can only be
described as a bloodthirsty mass of bulking metal, steadily advancing.
Our team fired away as enemies came into view, but it was a short time
before we faced a firing line as strong as our own. This lead to a
fierce yet fast battle as it can happen when two forces collide in an
Mechs dropped quickly on either side, but ultimately it was the enemy
that got the upper hand and the last few mechs retreated to the nearby
city for a last stand. All except one.
While the remaining forces duked it out in the city an enemy victor
stayed behind to finish off a victor. What the victor might not have
counted on was that the spider was an expert pilot. The victor,
realising he was losing, called upon a timber wolf to assist.
The timberwolf only arrived to see the victor explode before him and an a
spider quickly closing in on him. The timberwolf, damaged from the
previous fights, could not match the speed and precise shooting of the
spider and quickle fell as well.
The enemy had by now finished off the remaining forces and one of them
had run back to hill. It was an enemy raven, trying it's luck against
our spider. There was only 1, quick exchange between him and it left the
enemy raven weaponless and running for its life.
The 3 enemies that were left, a raven, timber wolf and jagermech decided
the best move was to take our base. This gave our spider enough time to
sneak up unnoticed and disarm the jagermech. This left the timber wolf
as the only enemy with usable weapons. Once again the spider, even
though notably damaged from previous engagements, still manages to
overcome the timber wolf.
The jagermech was then destroyed, but the raven went missing. It was
assumed the raven had left for its own base so the spider went in that
direction. This left our base unprotected and the raven had its last
laught as it got on our base, but in a teethclenhing run, our spider got
there in time and saved the day.
Cipher42 stood victorious that day as the only survivor of a quite memorable battle.
I have decided to turn the Match Maker to Clan vs IS matching for a few hours this afternoon/evening. I think it is time that we collect some new data on the current state of balance between the two technologies.
We will of course be keeping player skill and other factors in mind when looking at the data, while compariing it to the previous IS vs Clan tests.
When: 3:00 PM PDT and will last for an estimated 4-6 hours depending on results and the quality of play.
Expected Behaviour: Players should expect to experience Clan vs IS matches or when necessary the MM will release valve IS vs IS or Clan vs Clan matches.
I may also consider creating a test window tomorrow during our peak European times.

Skye Front Commander General Arturus Steiner sat in a massive throne,
surveying the assembled Battlemechs and warriors of the Skye Rangers
17th Regiment. His black tunic was bedecked in medals and both it and
the huge cloak sitting on his shoulders were lit by glowing red piping
at their edges. To his right, the CO of the 17th and to his left KM-Gen
Ashuraa deathdancer, a few menials behind the trio to assist in the
Parades finale. The MechWarriors of the 17th marched past the dais in
full dress uniform, trooping the Colours with Lances sporting their
This event gave the whole regiment time to recuperate and celebrate
their victories. After months of gruelling battles along the Kurita and
FRR boarders the haggard look about the command staff had finally
started to wane. Their deployment had taken them on a campaign to take
back pirate bases near the Tamar March home worlds, Kurita held planets
and clearing out Davion separatists for the Lyran Alliance. They had
faced House units hired on by their respective backers and Merc company
after Merc company, even contesting a planet garrisoned by the House of
Lords led by Lord Heimdelight and taken away a huge number of victories
and salvage. They all knew it would be only a brief respite, but it was
Standing stock still the MechWarriors of the 17th looked stern and proud
to be so honoured by the Skye Front Commander. One by one LT-COL
Ferrous Idaho called up those for promotion and handed them their new
pins. Then GEN Arturus stood and in a clear deep voice called up the
fighters that had achieved the Ground Pounders medals. Once they had
been cheered by their team mates and fallen back into line he called up
Lt1 Killarney, HPT ManusDei and KM SoggyGorilla. To the resounding
cheers of the 17th he handed out the McKennsy Hammer to Killarney, and
Order of Tamar Tigers and Honour of Skye to ManusDei and SoggyGorilla.
Before the din had even begun to subside, alarms rang across the
citadel. A new threat had reared its head and needed the 17th to deploy!

Hey guys sorry I have been gone soo long. I have been battling another back injury and this one kinda took it's toll. I hope to see all of you later today...it has been far too long since we went bashing.
Uhh thats nice info for the 26th: By Example when you create a unit it will take on the faction of the individual that created it. Therefore if a clan Ghost Bear member starts a unit it will be a CGB unit.
