Fellow 'Mechwarriors,

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 story:

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 all-out assault.

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.

[LT1] Kreedo I was proud to have witnessed this. Well done!
[KM] 007mither007 you finaly get it before me ! welldone cipher ...
[LT-GEN] Cipher w00t w00t! Thanks for the great write up Coffee- what a great match!
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.

Update: Solo Queue only

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 personal heraldry.

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 enough.

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!
