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.
I am proud to announce that the next article on Zeece's great interview series is up and ready to be read! And this time it is about me! Yes - you can see an interview with the one and only Friedrich 'DoctorDigital' Nix ;-)
"Sir, we have a coded report from the 25th Regiment.”
Arturus Steiner walks over to the Comm. officer on duty and says "You
are momentarily excused Lieutenant”. He then sits down and proceeds to

"Any word from the 4th on New Caledonia?”, to which the officer replies
"Nothing as of yet”.

The communications officer at the console appears as excited as if he
just gave birth, and burst out an exclamation, "We have a coded message
from New Caledonia!! It reads as follows”.

PGI has some down time planned
for MWO this next coming week for some maintenance and a patch;
A new enemy draws closer to the Inner Sphere. We are taking defensive initiatives to prepare for this onslaught with a series of server-side hardware changes and data migration, which we would like to prepare you for as well:
Wave 1: Monday, March 31st @ 10 PM PDT - April 1st @ 10 AM PST (Est. 12 hours) This is a significant Data Migration. So that Pilots are not left idle throughout this period: We have scheduled our next Public Test to take place during this 12 hour window.
Wave 2: Tuesday, April 1st @ 10 AM PDT - 12 PM PDT (Est 2 hours) Upon completion of the Data Migration, we will be deploying our April 1st patch with a focus on stability fixes.
Wave 3: Friday, April 4th @ 10 AM PDT - 12 PM PDT (Est. 2 hours) This is a minor maintenance to upgrade server hardware.
During these maintenance periods, the game servers will be unavailable. You will not be able to login to the website/game, nor purchase MC until the maintenance is completed. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Active Premium Time will be reimbursed upon completion of the operations.
We are eager to take in your feedback for both the Public Test and Patch on the forums upon the completion of these operations.
He has displayed great enthusiasm in assuming greater responsibilities
to help improve and strengthen the Regiment, and I have decided that
field command of the Regiment's full strength will be well wielded by
Okay boy's and girls our cartographers are in need of some assistance. They are back to work attempting to get names on key geographic location's on the new map's and to finish up some of the older ones that were never keyed properly. This is your opportunity to help and also in the process put your twist on some of the name's that Rangers will use to ID these locations.
Currently up on the map table is Alpine Peaks.
So get your backsides over to Brigade Tactics and lend a hand. Or else I will be forced to assign some work party's. And seeing as we have a whole bunch of mech's that someone decided to slop up on jungle planet. I think you would much rather work on this then the mech's.
To be considered an "Active" Mechwarrior of the Skye Rangers, a
Mechwarrior must login to the SR website once every 30 days at a
minimum. If communications are ignored or the Mechwarrior does not login
within a period of one month or more, that Mechwarrior may be named
Absent With Out Leave ("AWOL") and transferred to the Dropship Reserves.
If the Mechwarrior further does not login to the SR website within 3
months, they will be removed from the Roster, at the discretion of the
SFC. A RCOM and Members of Command Rank (i.e. those at the Position of
Lance Commander and above) are REQUIRED to be more active, in accordance
with their unit needs.
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!
