-We are Skye Rangers First! 1st Skye Jaegers (Hunters) Second. -North American Time Zone (This will change with growth.) -A competitive ('hardcore') regiment of the Skye Rangers Brigade. We are skilled, highly motivated, coordinated and dedicated.
This is a sport to us, not 'just a game'. Teamwork and tactics are paramount; personal glory is secondary to the win.
What we do:
Our goal is to compete in tournaments inside and out of the Skye Rangers, with an eye on the official Mechwarrior Online Planetary Meta-Game (Community Warefare). We currently compete in player run tournaments.
When we practice:
9:00 PM Skye Time (9pm Eastern) Mon./Wed./Friday:
Mondays: Bring your 'A-game' be ready to roll at 9PM sharp (mechs built, decks set by DC, game patched, etc.) it's tournament drop time!
Wednesdays: Play to our strengths, bring your best mech, DC's will choose from your approved mech builds & make a deck based on what you bring (with-in reason, decks will still be optimized, some adjustments may be made) trying new ideas, tactics, while polishing our skills.
Fridays: Fun Drop Night! There will be no less focus on doing our best, but we 'let our hair down' and play with some different mechs, tournament restrictions (i.e. no PPC's, all energy, non-jumpjet mechs, all trial mechs, drop weight restrictions etc.)
After official practice time is done, this is also the night we take the time to invite prospective SJ1 members, or other Skye Ranger pilots who would just like to experience a few 4-man drops with SJ1 members, or if we are able, take 50/50 (50% SJ1, 50% non SJ1 SR members) and sync drop 12-man's to show them how we do things.
For more information, check out the 1st Skye Jaegers Forums, and join the 22nd SR (Recruits) Regiment, Tournament Try-Out Battalion specifying your wish to join SJ1. We'll see you on the battlefield!
