We have had a recent influx of questions about a November preorder Mech and questions surrounding what Mech would be shipping in January. We thought it would be a good idea to share...
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.
Okay boys and girls. I find myself in need of a little assistance here. I have been trying to finish our mech bay up. And well I have run into a road block . I am in need of some screen shots from the in game Mech bay. Here is what I need images of. Griffin's, Wolverine an Firestarters. I need images of all of the variants of the mech with their base weapons loadout and I would prefer them in their Factory color's. The images can be uploaded to the brigade image Gallery in the Mech bay section. I just need a note that they are present. I am attaching an image of what I want just ignore the technical data that I have already added to the image. I would like the Mech to be turned a little bit one way or the other so it has a bit of a profile image.
Thank you for your assistance. I would like to have these images by this weekend so that I can work on them.
I will also add the Victor to this list. The images I have of the Victor are terrible.
It was exactly one month ago today that I stepped in to take
the reins as RCOM of the 17th Regiment of the Skye Rangers Brigade. Since that
time the 17th has experienced tremendous growth and activity. We have been
scrapping with the best of them on the battlefield, fought some amazing fights,
and will continue to do so. We have only gotten our feet wet.
As a result of continued bravery and support on the
battlefield, it is my honor to report the following changes, promotions and
commendations for the 17th Regiment:
reinstated as LCOM
CaptainCoffee to SSG
• CP Zolack
Fractal (Shadow1) to SCP
Werewolfmaster to SCP
Bregan to CP
MacheteJezter to CP
awarded Senior Qualified
awarded Tournament Qualified
Please join me in congratulating the aforementioned pilots
for a job well done and continued commitment to the 17th regiment and the Skye
Rangers as a whole.
The night was growing long and all the office lights seemed to be out except for the young new RCOM's. Leif looked around his office at the stacks of paperwork. It was clear to him that Skye was growing. The stacks of applications , transfer papers and wide eyed new pilots were all proof of this. He was happy to help Skye as Skye and its members have always reciprocated without hesitation. He was finishing off a few papers when his wife called the office line. He had avoided her calls earlier in the day, but had to answer now or she'd be worried sick.... that or furious. Any RCOM must admit that at home he is the subordinate at times. After a hurried conversation Leif sighed once again looking at the the work to be done for tomorrow. He rested his head on a mound of envelopes. His mind was just drifting into past battles in his triple black HGN - 733C. He could almost hear the sound of his AC20 shells impacting and sending lights flying into burning heaps of twisted metal. Suddenly a rather light knocking sound came from the door. He beckoned for the late comer to enter.
Haze05 stood humbly at the door. This SJ1 pilot was always known for being polite and helpful and Leif was happy to see someone he had ran with in the past. He beckoned the pilot inside. "What brings you here at this hour Haze?" Leif proceeded to roll a cigarette and offered one to the pilot. Haze replied while accepting the smoke in good faith. The pilot detailed how he wanted to help the new SR 22 pilots on the battlefield. That he wanted to help them with not only strategies , but the basics. The two lamented about how they were in their green days and all the questions they had asked. Haze upon looking around the paper packed office added that he'd be happy to be active with communications and transferring new pilots as well. Leif's dishevelled face gained a wiry smile. He pushed forward a draft version of a press release for a Master at Arms Attaché. He stood up and extended his hand to the pilot. "It is with great honour that I accept you immediately for the position. Your pro activeness , positive attitude and battle skills are all commendable. All of us at HQ appreciate your dedication and work ethic in the name of Skye." The two shook hands and finished their congratulatory cigarettes together. The humble pilot thanked Leif on his way out.
Please send congratulations and any MWO questions to Haze05
Thank you for all your efforts towards Skye and making it an even better organization. o7
Last Month our Battalion Commander KM JokerPW informed command
that life was going to require him to step down from his
responsibilities to focus on the family and school. This in addition
to our rapid growth since December triggered a Regimental wide
reorganization that I think puts the "Freedom's Star" in a much stronger
position to continue its growth and foster the brotherhood and
excellent pilots its famous for.
It is my honor to announce the following changes:
HPT 007mither007 to BCOM with promotion to Koomandant
LT Dyvim Slorm/Wodzinski to CCOM 2nd Company and promotion to Hauptmann
SSG Alexander Fury to CCOM 3rd Company and promotion to Hauptmann
CP NOTIME to LCOM and promotion to SG
KM JokerPWM to LCOM
LT1 WarOrk to LCOM and elevation from the 3rd's Ready Reserves
LT1 The Reaper Beckons to LCOM

MWOWC EU-Team: today seems to be the last opportunity to grab em prices for participation in the MWOWC. So in case you CAN attend tonight, it would be appreciated highly! I want at least one EON-component as a hanging cockpit item!
You kids with your newfangled toys! Back in my day, we had to push the AC grenades into the enemy armor by mech-hand! Our cockpits never went below 40° Celsius and our lasers went PEEEWW instead of pewpewpewpewpew!
Also important thing for those who didn't know. After this patch you can now take any mech from mechbay into training grounds with unsaved loadout. Bascially allowing you to try out different builds/skills without spending cbills/xp.
Hey William! Nice to have ye back! Can you invite Gri3f3r and CrashSteel into the academy please so they have a bigger bunch of ppl to play with? Pretty nice folks from what I have seen until now. Thx!
Tonight (EU-Time): Team Bravo does MWOWC18 drops to get the games needed for prices! Show up + participate, so we can spread PGI's blessings between as many Rangers as possible. Check the thread in TacCom-Subforum, contact via PM or show up on TS!
