The Skye Rangers Brigade has a long tradition of service and loyalty to House Steiner through four long and grueling Succession Wars spanning hundreds of years. Once again civil war threatens the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere. Our Mechwarriors have been called home, allies will be chosen, enemies vanquished, and battles fought on distant worlds under far off suns...the Federation of Skye will now decide its destiny...
Welcome to the Home Base of the Skye Rangers, located on the dark and beautiful planet Summer, within the Federation of Skye.
Here is the newest update for the Kell hounds promote SJstorm to Bcom, move Rad to Ccom
Top to Bottom:
The Bman: Accrued Medical Leave (grin)I will be gone for 2 months Raudulfr: to ccom away for real life issues SJStorm: Promote to bcom HPT-KM (based on 32 mos) Posidon67: Promote to HPT-KM (based on 31 mos) Jud583: Promote to LT (based on 31 mos) Morrow: Promote to CP (based on 60 days)
Art. I will be away for a 2 months at the VA and Radaulfr has to take care of real life issues so Sjstorm will be taking over in the interm. If you want him to move to rcom because of my extended absence I am okay with that if that is what you want to do.
We'd like to thank everyone again for all your support and amazing feedback during the MechLab PTS this month!
We're excited to show you the changes we've made and the feedback we've integrated since the MechLab PTS ended. We think you'll like the changes we've made to the Warehouse in particular....
NGNG will be running through a sneak-peek of the release build of the new MechLab during this weekend's Weekend Update!
If you don't have a chance to catch that peek this weekend, you won't have to wait much longer...we're releasing the new MechLab overhaul onto the Live servers in the June 2nd patch!
The new MechLab is a huge improvement over the current system, and we will continue to make additional improvements and refinements moving forward. As promised, we are still going to provide a rundown on the feedback we received during the MechLab PTS, to let you know what we've already integrated and what might be integrated in the future.
The Public Test Forums have now been closed. With the new MechLab releasing in Tuesday's Patch, further discussions regarding the MechLab can be held elsewhere on the forums.
We have great plans to use the Public Test Server in the near future, so stay tuned!
