[PFC] Ghaltero Correction, MWO forum says Wolverine Champion, not Wolverine Hero. You had my hopes up there for a second, lol. Although ...

[SSGM] SuperNobody That's awesome! This might actually be the first cockpit item I put in besides the CW medallions.

CW oriented guide.

First of all let me draw you an example.

Let's think about a team as a body. Drop commander is a brain, lances are legs and arms.
No imagine this body standing in the middle of burning house, surrounded by fire. One foot is bare, one in shoe. The bare foot is one lance (snipers, lrms, paper-mechs), foot with shoe on is lance with brawler type mechs.
What will happen if one foot (without shoe) decide not to move, because it will get hurt?
Other foot - part of the whole body will be able to move only a little and whole body will die in the fire.
So what to do? Body need to work as one.
For such situations team have brain - commander.
Commander gives order, just like brain, takes responsibility and send one foot without cover into fire for the sake of whole body, one foot will get burned but the whole team will escape the fire. If everything will go smooth maybe even the bare foot will survive.

Nazgoth took his precious time off work, to write this little 'team play' oriented guide for us. If you liked the introduction and want to know more. You may find it, if you follow the link below.

In the times when we need to defend our home planet, everyone needs to perform to the best of his abilities. 

Cheers friends,
Shaman

Defence of Skye!

Operation: Screaming Wombat!

Ok People, this is the brass ring! Skye is under threat from the FWL.

All Skye Rangers Personnel are asked and encouraged to drop in CW in defense of our home system. If you are new to MWO or have difficulty with any aspect of CW please contact your RCOM for aid. We Can Do It!!!

For the Archon

Free Skye!

Fellow 'Mechwarriors:

I have to relate some sad news to post today. Ashuraa has resigned as Executive Officer (XO) and requested transfer to the SPM, effective yesterday. Coincidentally, the day before, Hans also resigned as XO:A. Both due to RL commitments, MWO 'burn out' and other personal reasons.

Personally, I will miss Ash's wise counsel and ability to bridge my wishes for the guild vs. reality and what needed to be done. She was also an excellent website admin and our site would not look nearly as good nor be as functional without her tireless hours behind the scenes.In many ways she was my right hand and really did build this guild as much as any of us...I will miss her being around dearly.

Hans has kind of been the heart & soul of the SR, especially in his early days...He was our first Duke and came up with the phrase "Brigade Up!"...I will also miss his wise advice and common sense approach...

Kusak, as the other remaining website admin and to his credit, has been picking up his activities to assist, but that is not really his 'job' in the SR and is burdensome for the QMR...

As such and since we have no time to mourn the leaving of these two fine officers (we have a war to wage after all), we need a new XO and XO:A...Someone who can 'keep the troops in line' and act as a website admin to assist Kusak and I. With the SR approaching ~500 members again, we're also going to need serious help with guild admin, in-game roster management, website stuff, forums monitoring, not to mention being very proficient, well-respected and visible in MWO CW...!

Brigade Command is currently evaluating candidates for a replacement XO (Zeece, Greyfoxx and Hrunting are already in the running, as nominated by yours truly) and we hope to have someone selected as the new XO within a week or so. In the meantime, Kusak and I are still diligently processing new recruits, transfers, promotions, etc. so guild members should not notice a day-to-day change.

For their hard work and tireless service to the Skye Rangers pretty much since we started, both soldiers are hereby awarded the Honor of Skye (HoS) medal...(I was actually surprised neither had this one already)...and I hope you all join me in wishing these two fine mechwarriors the best of luck in their retirement!

Please feel free to reply to this email or send one privately to me with any questions or concerns...

.../Brigade Up!

Thanks!

p.s. For all his hard work recently in assisting me with all things website admin related the past several months...not to mention his wise (and often blunt) advice, Kusak is hereby promoted to the Rank of Kommandant-General (KM-GEN).

DAY 2 of 11
Hanging Item.
      When piloting an UrbanMech, these 8-bit sunglasses remind your enemies they are just going to have to  "Deal with it". The standard edition UrbanMech Package gets 1 of this hanging Item while the Collectors edition will get 3. Oh Yeah!

Welcome to the Countdown to the UrbanMech release.
We will be sharing info, images, screenshots or videos each day leading up to the April 7th Release date.
You still have time to pre-order and enjoy your UrbanMech day one on April 7th.
DAY 1 of 11
The UrbanMech Stein.
This Stein was part of the early bird special and was represented by an image of the UrbanMech pasted on our standard Stein model. Well, our art department decided they could do better than that and this is the result. We really like the upgraded look and hope you will too. If you didn't get in on the early bird rewards these steins will be also available for 500 MC on April 7th.
Stay tuned to this post for daily updates as we countdown the days to the UrbanMech release.
[PFC] Jaraii Can't wait to see what the Urban Camo and the limited camo look like.
[LT-GEN] Alexander Fury I love that PGI encourages the image that we are all drinking while playing this game!
