In the darkness of twilight, they say the Fan Creations sub-forum is haunted.
It's time to go bump in the night, and show how Mechs can be undead!
Zombie Centurions, Phranken...
We are proud to announce the re-introduction of global payment options to our purchase systems.
Which options are available depends on your country of residence:
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.
Was doing a bit of work on the Brigade Tactics section of the website today.
First I would like to say thanks to everyone who has been adding links and guides to the Tactics section of the website and or contributed to the Brigade Tactics section of our site.
Second I am doing a bit of house cleaning. Some of the pinned threads are getting pretty old and many have not been updated in some time. I need a bit of help from all of you who drop much more regularly than me with these theory threads. I would like some opinions on which ones are completely out of date and need to be trashed vs can they be updated and brought back in line with current tactics and build information.
Third up I have added a new sub forum to Brigade Tactics that is titled Tutorial's and guide's. With the pure number of resources that have been found I decided they were to the point they deserved their own area to be kept in. Over the next few days I will be moving the various guides and tutorials that people have created or found and posted into this area. I have set the access on this section so that Members of the 22nd should be able to access these. (I may have not gotten it correct. Subject to Ashuraa verification of did I get it right or not)
http://www.skye-rangers.net/forum/m/3241960/viewthread/16510118-patch-notes-1021-new-mechs-reward-system-20-bug-fixes PATCH #32 Patch - Tuesday, October 21st @ 10AM – 1PM PDT Patch Number: Change Log Greetings MechWarriors! Two of our customer appreciation awards are now in-game!
The limited edition Atlas AS7-S and CN9-AH each come with custom camos and geometry, new loadouts, and a 30% C-Bill reward bonus.
As a quick refresher from the anniversary E-mail and forum thread: The AS7-S is being awarded to players who have purchased any tier of Founders, Phoenix, Clan Wave 1 or Wave 2 pre-order package in their MWO career.
The CN9-AH will appear in the Mechlab of anyone who had purchased an MC package or any founders collection. For more info, please refer to: http://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/171445-anniversary-faq/ . We have even more prizes for all players to benefit from with the introduction of Rewards 2.0: These new rewards are designed to encourage even more engagement, teamwork, and role warfare. Many of these are new designs and have several requirements to trigger in-game. Please take a moment to review the list and table below but keep in mind further tuning may occur. (We will let you know if and when it does!)
In Conquest game mode, point capture has been accelerated significantly. A tuning pass has also taken place on jump jets, fall speed, and LRM5 weapon-systems.
A number of major bug-fixes are appearing in today's build, including one where Post-AA was being forced on despite player-selection otherwise, fixing the out-of-bounds in River City and resolving a memory corruption issue as well as others listed below.
The much anticipated Inner Sphere pack has arrived, code named Resistance.
Players will immediately notice the high value comparable to the Phoenix program where packages range from 20 to 80 dollars. This is primarily based as always on the C-bill to MC ratio which describes the difference between IS and Clan package pricing.
Fans may wonder what our process was for selecting the Zeus and Grasshopper after the forum poll results. In both cases voting was close enough to 50/50 that we felt we could go either way. In the end we felt these 4 ‘Mechs in particular seemed to fit very well together, with other, future packages seeming to be better fits for inclusion of the Black Knight and Cyclops..
Since it is unclear in the graphic: Panther, Enforcer, Grasshopper, Zeus
This package will go on sale Wednesday Oct 22nd at 4PM PDT
Full variant details will be provided on Wednesday when the package is made available for purchase.
*Special Note: We do not yet have mock-ups for the Inner Sphere faction skins/content, we will work hard to supply these images as soon as possible, with a commitment to have all of those details view able before the Dec 16th delivery of the King Crab. Any purchase decisions in the meantime will need to be based off of past content.
The world posed some remarkable challenges for the first settlers trying
to colonize the world. The local lifeforms are virulent and dangerous,
and those plants and animals imported from off world were quickly
consumed, killed by disease or otherwise destroyed by the local flora
and fauna. It took years for scientists on the planet to find an opening
that would allow imported lifeforms to survive, and by the thirty-first
century the imported species had managed to gain a foothold on New
New Kyoto was largely settled by Japanese expatriates, and the world
became a major center of the Buddhist religion in the Lyran
Commonwealth. It possesses the largest statue to Amidha Buddha in the
Inner Sphere: The statue is over 110 meters tall.
The industrial base on New Kyoto was initially only capable of
supporting light industries, but during the era of the Star League New
Kyoto was one of numerous worlds which saw increasingly large factory
complexes appearing on the planet as a result of the Commonwealth's
industrial base expanding.
During the First Succession War the Bolson Shipyards in orbit above New
Kyoto were the target of a massive assault that in February 2787
destroyed what had been a major naval production facility during the
Star League era.
A ban on exporting native New Kyoto lifeforms off world remained firmly
in place as late as 3025, and while New Kyoto was reasonably free of the
larger hostile life forms such as Armor Bears and Ki-rians by this
point, visitors would have to have been extremely foolish to travel into
any of the wild areas of the planet alone or unarmed. As late as
3067 thousands of deaths a year on New Kyoto were attributed to just
those two species, despite the armor bear being limited largely to the
remaining woodlands on Asharu and the Ki-rian being subject to
massive hunting campaigns all over Kalaska as the local population tried
to contain the species.
The Endo family of New Kyoto was responsible for leading the Rahneshire
region of the Federation of Skye during the Succession Wars, and
embodied the ferocious corporate spirit and warriors for which the
Rahneshire was famous throughout the Commonwealth.
By 3025 several spaceports were being built on New Kyoto to boost trade
with the Free Worlds League and a number of major industries had been
constructed along the coastlines of the four continents dotted around
New Kyoto. New Kyoto was a centre of the Pure Land Sect Buddhist
tradition within the Commonwealth as well as being the centre of group
of planets with a population largely descended from ethnically Japanese
settlers. The Toshodai-ji temple on New Kyoto housed the largest
sculpture of the Amida Buddha known to exist. The distinctive
Japanese influence on the culture of New Kyoto is such that visitors to
the planet have frequently questioned whether New Kyoto was actually the
subject of an extended occupation by the Draconis Combine at some
By 3067 the Kyoto College located outside the city of Yonei on Kalasaka
was at the forefront of research into myomer technologies used for both
medical and military applications. Discoveries made by those studying or
working at the College had led to a host of improvements and
developments in a host of areas ranging from BattleMech and
IndustrialMech design through to myomer-based personal armor for civil,
military and governmental agencies. The College also offered a wide
portfolio of programs in engineering and medicine that allowed for work
experience and internships with technology and firms and hospitals
throughout the Isle of Skye.
In response to the recent raids and assaults on worlds within the Word
of Blake Protectorate, the Blakists launch raiding parties against
various worlds around the Protectorate border in early September 3076.
Making use of weapons of mass destruction to augment the damage
inflicting, the raiding parties - few of which were larger than a single
Level III struck at the worlds of Algorab, Alnasi, Amity, Bordon,
Connaught, Hunan, Kessel, New Hessen, New Kyoto, Ronel, St. Andre, Styk,
Tsitsang and Wei. Of the worlds hit, the Capellan Confederation took
the brunt of the fighting.
*HPG Update* Please disregard the last two msgs. I have been asked to follow the PGI timeline instead of Canon timeline for the invasion: So I am pressing the RESET button and starting fresh with the next one.
