Event Highlights

Greetings Mechwarriors,

Welcome to the Supernova event! This week we're running an event more specifically catered toward Supernovas and Supernova pilots.

Why so exclusive? Well, we are also planning on running the Skill Tree PTS during this time with the latest and greatest Skill Tree build and we want your feedback. Some details regarding that upcoming update to the PTS build can be found here.

That said, everyone can still earn 3 Days of Active Premium Time during this Supernova event by completing the Star Destroyer Personal Challenge, because hey, we need to keep these Supernova pilots on their toes!

Supernova owners have a bounty of goods to collect, so if you don't own a Supernova Package now might be a good time to buy one!

Click on the tabs at the top of the event page to view the details of each section.


PGI has released patch notes and the new Supernova 'Mech final details!

This patch is mostly bugfixes and new items. The 2016 loyalty 'Mechs are going to be available for purchase soon as well. It's definately work checking out here

[LT] Kurbeks I know that skill tree was supposed to be here. But still there are many issues that shouldn't require too much tim...
[SSG] 3GOON3 Really looking forward to the new skill system, shame it's delayed but am glad they are making sure it's tuned...
[ARCN] Arturus Steiner a Beat me to posting this...thanks much, Agatheis!!!

Lt-Gen The Zpiier started off with " I see that our regiment is a casual in plays part-time.
I'd like to see some kind of coordinated effort to get together on a regular basis. If you are an officer and hold a position, this is your JOB. If you'd like to surrender your position (LCOM, CCOM, BCOM)
, let it be known you will maintain your rank. I just need a suitable replacement, so present to me someone willing to do it."
"With all that said, promotions are as follows":

Jonas Fenmore : promoted to SSGM
Lord Skippy : promoted to LT1

Congratulations gentilemen.

Lt Gen The Zipper
AS, HoS, OTT, KOS, GPM , McH, RBW, MQ, and QMR

.../Brigade Up!

It was time to make up for lost profit opportunities during December, but that was expected when most were on holiday leave. The new year opened with immediate contract assignments to the majority of the regiment, even COL Sevronis joined in on several of them. As the days passed on, many of the contracts required special care of varied degrees. It had become obvious a group for special operations was needed. Sevronis already had two pilots in mind to lead this new group, the problem was deciding which one. Zimobog had rank over Kurbeks currently, but the latter had been the the Legion much longer.

"A Trial of Position," Sevronis stated calmy, standing with Zimobog and Kurbeks in the barracks, while other pilots gathered around.
"You want us to have a what?" Kurbeks replied with a puzzled look.
The Colonel smirked and gave a chuckle. "Sorry, old habits. What I mean is a duel. In this case I'll say it's five rounds, one for each weight class with the final round being the choice of whoever is losing after the fourth match."
"Sounds like fun. I'm game," Zimobog approved with a nod and crossed arms. Kurbeks nodded his approval as well.
"Excellent, I know just the place," Sevronis added gleefully, wringing his hands.

Everyone had gathered at a small canyon a ways outside HQ. The opponents faced each other down in the center with the spectators up on the ridges, and their Phobos dropship nearby. One point was to be awarded for engine desctruction, while crippling a leg or neutering an oponent's weapon bays each awarded a point as well. The duel began with light 'mechs, of which Kurbeks took the first round win, adding another win in the medium class round to his total. Zimobog managed to take the win in the Heavy round, but lost a second win to Kurbeks in the Assault round. With Kurbeks currently in the lead, it was Zimobog's pick for the final round, of which they remained in assaults. Unfortunately, luck had not been with him this time, as Kurbeks pulled in another victory. After the matches, everyone gathered near Phobos. 

"Well that was entertaining," Sevronis announced higher up on the entry ramp. "No better way to solve a mercenary dispute than with a duel, and with this I proclaim Kurbeks the new LCOM of the Black Ops lance, with Zimobog and Durando under him. Just need to find you a fourth."
Cheers roared up all around until the Colonel held up a hand for silence. "From this point forward, I'm also going to allow sanctioned duels between Legion pilots and anyone can be challenged. Hell toss in a wager or two while you're at it." The cheering grew again, and it wasn't long before Sevronis felt a small instance of regret at announcement. Several pilots immediately challenged their RCOM, all waging on a promotion if they won, or lower pay for a month if they lost. They all won.

"And this is why I don't gamble...", Sevronis sighed to himself as he watched the last 'mech he lost in being dragged into Phobos by the salvage team.


TL;DR version


Durando - SCP


ZeWolfie - SG

Aerei - SSG

Griffster - SSG

USTheComedian - SSG

Makeciau - SSG

Kurbeks - LCOM / LT

Congratulations to the above! Strength through unity!

I would also like to welcome Shuben who came to us from the Kell Hounds recently! They didn't seem too happy at him...for some reason.

P.S.- I actually recorded the duel matches. I'll post them when I get around to editing.

[SSG] GDL Griffster NICE! Congrats to all.

Fellow 'Mechwarriors,

Congrats and thanks!

BattleTech: Campaign Operations ($39.99USD)
Forge your forces and prepare to fight any battle across the Inner Sphere! Campaign Operations completes the core rulebook series begun in Total Warfare. While previous rulebooks detailed game play at various levels—from a single MechWarrior, to a BattleMech company, to entire armies—this final volume focuses on the forces a player will build and run through any level of play.

Campaign Operations contains rules for creating and running forces, whether a down-on-their-luck mercenary battalion, or a fully-supplied House regiment. The volume also contains complete rules for devising solar systems, allowing players to recreate existing star systems or craft all-new worlds to challenge each other. The final sections of the book bring several options to the table for campaign play. Building off of previous sections in Total Warfare and Strategic Operations, the Narrative Campaign, Map-Based Campaign and Chaos Campaign rules allow players to build exciting, fun campaigns of almost any stripe for their newly-minted forces!
