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.
A loud knock sounded on the door frame to Lt-Col Dimentox's
office, followed by heavy steps that could only be Iron Idaho. "Yes
Ferrous, what do you have to report?", quizzed the young commander.
Ferrous saluted, "Sir! I have reviewed this months data in from the field, sir" He looked more ragged than usual somehow.
"Alright, anything I need to know about?"
"The drops seem to be getting worse out there boss. The damage our mechs
are taking is placing a huge strain on our repair crews. The teams sent
out to the Periphery are fighting daily with pirates looting any bit of
scrap they can lay their hands on. Definitely too much trouble out
there to be just another Kurita paid for raid. The Marik combats are
going poorly as well.
It means the men are getting a lot of cockpit time. I am proud to verify
we have 3 MechWarriors that are due their Tournament Qualification
medals. PFC MolsonCanadian, PFC Obtineret and PFC Killarney have all met
Dimentox took a quick look over the data and replied, "There is one you left out. Seems you are Master Qualified."
"Sir, I was only processing the data from out on the Lines. I will do a more thorough processing next time."
"Well you won't have a choice in the matter Ferrous. I am retiring from
active duty to spend time with the family and all that. You are now the
RCOM for the 17th, here are the papers from HQ already."
Ferrous looked over them with disbelief.
Ferrous snapped a salute and lumbered out of the office as his bionic legs would allow with a huge grin on his face.

Those who know me well may take a couple cracks at a joke given the subject line
I am currently finishing my teaching term and doing my marks. If anyone is a teacher they know that this means I'm living off little food and spending countless hours with groveling students and mile high paper stacks.
I should be done all my marking by April 24th or 25th. Please feel free to message me , but understand I may be delayed getting back to you.
My attache Haze05 will be at the ready, but please copy both of us on any messages.
Thanks for your help and understanding my situation.
The SR 22nd is looking for clever , cool-headed , caring pilots to help our new mechwarriors succeed out there on the galactic battlefields. This coalition of willing pilots will have several goals with the SR ;
1. Greeting new pilots and making them feel at home.
2. Helping any pilot with strategy and information about weaponry etc...
3. Transfers of pilots
4. Creation of SR training materials
5. Running with new SR 22 pilots and reaking mayhem!
Send Leif 777 a private message if interested. Remember you will be representing all of SR if you are chosen, so serious inquiries only please.

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!
