I just received a news burst from our forces from the 25th regiment. I gladly pass on their greetings to you. Now with no further addo....
From LT-Gen Darkhuntress RCOM 25th Regiment Skye Rangers
To Skye Front Command
I would like to post the following seperate as to honor the mechwarriors that have participated and taken the extra step to defend the Honor and Name of the Skye Rangers and the 25th Regiment in particular.
Over the last several weeks a Clan Invasion Tournament was held in which the 25th Regiment participated.
In the first of which the Team of the 25th Skye Ranger Regiment was able to obtain the 4th place in the overall competition (out of 19 Teams)
Just this weekend on the 12th April 3050, the 25th Skye Rangers had to step up again, against the enemy Teams.
2 Team stepped up to defend the name of the 25th Skye Rangers, 1 Lead by QuimMorius and the other by Demoulius
It was a 3 part competition requiring to drop within Conquest, Skirmish and Assault modus... (3 of each with 1 open drop)
Not only were the amount of drops given, but the time allotment was also restricted allowing for no additional drops.
Under time pressure, and heavy enemy competition, the 2 Teams of the 25th Regiment adchieve the 3rd and 4th place out of 21 Teams in the overall rankings.
It need to be stated that in the individual ratings the Team lead by Demoulius adchieved the 1st place within the Assault matches with a large lead over the next teams
The Team lead by QuimMorius adchieved a 3rd Rank within the Skirmish competition.
In addition to this brief discription, the matches were recorded and can be viewed within the 25th Regiment forums...
I want to congratulat everyone and wish them good luck in the future...
The House Steiner Hub and Clan Wolf Alpha Galaxy present:
Prelude: On 22 March, units from all over the Inner Sphere rallied to defend their worlds for an invasion by several clan units. The Inner Sphere crushed them. But it's not enough just to stop them. It's time to kick them out of the Inner Sphere once and for all! And so, we are putting out a call for both Inner Sphere and Clan players, mercenaries, and lone wolves to participate in this grand event.
Saturday, 12 April 2014.
The afternoon session begins at 19:30GMT. (Lance leaders must be there 19:00GMT to claim a lance channel and hear the rules.) This time is specifically set up for our European friends, but all can participate.
The evening session begins at 8:30pm EST. (Lance leaders must be there 8:00pmEST to claim a lance channel and hear the rules.)
BE THERE EARLY!!

For more details check out the post on MWO or in the TAC forums.
Due to some real life events Rigger is unable to be on and get this
through to you three great leaders; Arturus, Ashuraa, and Kusak. So I
am here today to send these up the line with Riggers rubber stamp of
approval (also he is attached to rubber stamp again if needed).
For Posidon67: Tamar Tigers
Posidon67 47 years of age and still trying to save up for the Battlemech
WARHAMMER, and now after he reached his 2502 kill and selling of some
of his woodworking he can hopefully afford it. Otherwise he might drone
himself in booze and scantily clad women before he gets that chance. So
with out further wait I recommend Posidon67 be given the award of Tamar
Tigers so he can use the bonus to get the mech. Otherwise he might get
lost caving which I call getting lost in a cave due to his depression of
not having his WARHAMMER.

For DisasterArea: Ground Pounders
No one is really sure how old DisasterArea is, except that he is older
then dirt. He joined the Kell Hounds in its founding not as a mech pilot
but originally to pay off his gambling debt to one of the pilots and
members of the Kell Hounds. While doing so one of the bases where
attacked by Kurita and so Disaster got called upon to pilot a crappy
Urban mech, which has now been long retired. With the current piloting
of the Griffon and Locust by Disaster he has finally reached a mile
marker of 1,000 confirmed kills. Even though he would love to pad his
stats with being a lady killer but we all knwo the truth to be the
opposite. So now when not working on his own mechs you can usually find
Disaster toying with his brewery setup he has stowed in general barrack
closet. Other then that infraction which we choose to over look Disaster
Area deserves to be recognized for his achievements and should be
honored with the Ground Pounders Medal.

For Clownwarlord: Tamar Tigers
Losing a bet, Clownwarlord was off on patrol one day. had his torn up
Timberwolf on autopilot during a long stretch of nothingness. He sat
asleep dreaming that he was fishing, or hunting instead of course, don't
we all? Alarms started to whistle and sound off suddenly, set off by a
contact on his radar. Clown jumped up trying to wipe the sleep from his
eyes, and slightly still hung over from yet another night of drinking
with the rest of the Hounds. Squinting and trying to focus his eyes off
in the distance he spotted to the top end of what seemed to be a much
smaller mech headed the other way about 900m and moving further away
rapidly. Radar and his tactical computer confirmed it was a Panther. It
was pointless locking his LRMs onto it due to it being already out of
range nearly. Clown popped up his Dual Gauss rifles, steadied his aim
and shot both weapons at the intruder. He sneezed as his pulled the
trigger and missed, allergic to Kurtia scum. He re-steadied his aim
aiming just a little high now that this Panther has now gone out to
around 1100m. He fires once more Nailing the Panther directly in the
back of the head with both shots. Clown steers his Timber wolf towards
the wreckage to confirm his kill. After getting to the downed mech he
confirmed one headless Panther, radioed out for a salvage truck to come
pick it up and deliver it for the scrap its worth. (gotta pay for all
the lost bets, and beer somehow eh?) Taking in the sight of a good shot
he rummages through his bag and eventually pulls out a fairly good sized
marker. Turning his alarms back on he gets out of his seat and opens the
hatch climbing out. There is a huge set of marks off to one side of his
mech, he sits down and starts counting 1, 2, 3, 4, finally settling on
2499 with a huge and almost tearful grin on his face he makes the 2500th
mark. Grinning to himself "Guys lost that bet! tell me I'll never get
2500 kills in this lifetime! they're buying tonight!"

If these could get posted and medals be awarded please (some of them
have been waiting months ... Posidon67's has anyway. And lastly thank
Clownwarlord BCOM of the Kell Hounds
so I log on to MWO just now and my son says," oh you're playing MW? did you here they're making the Urbanmech available. Man I'm getting the on with the twin rear facing AC/20's!" Lol, had to convince him it was a joke.
