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 former Wolf's Dragoon, until they ended their contract with house
Steiner. At that time Raudulfr choose to stay alined with his home land
in a manner of speaking. So he went to one of the local bars where he
heard of a another Steiner house merc group was organizing and
recruiting. Even though the Dragoon's did not give him his accustomed
Phoenix Hawk they let him take some of the weapon systems with him,
which helped grease the palms to be allowed to join the Kell Hounds.
Since then Rad has accumulated over 1,000 kills gaining him the Ground
Pounders. As for such I request he be given the award based on his
service so he can use the bonus to buy his over priced coffee from the

Just months ago in January 3050 Nobodie was working his shift as night
watch where he got a coded transmission of a battlemech's schematic. The
schematics where labeled Daishi, and ever since that day Nobodie has
been grinding C-Bills from odd jobs the Kell Hounds have received. With
this and his 30 years of previous service to the Kell Hounds Nobodie has
accumulated 4238 kills. Thus rewarding him the bonus pay and awards

accumulates the small fortune for this mech the sooner he can go back to
his perverted ways of girl watching.
Tomorrow here in the US is Memorial Day. A day to remember those who have given their lives in the line of duty. Originally it was a day to remember those in the Armed forces but now it is also a day to remember all of those who put their safety second to protect and help everyone else. Fireman, Police, Emergency Medical Responders and of course those in the Armed forces.
For those who have given everything who have gone on to the other side. Thank You. To their family's who are left behind. I would say they are and will forever be Hero's in my eye's.
Take a moment tomorrow and remember those who have paid the ultimate price. And if you bump into a current member of those service take a moment to thank them for the risk they take to keep the rest of us safe when we need them most. As long as we remember they will never be forgotten.
O Fortuna! Every battle is a chance to win or face demise.
Lady Luck is watching over us and we a re warming the dice today with a new Firestarter Champion: Scorching through the battlefield with five medium lasers, shredding past enemy fire with twin-AMS, jump-jet and a swift 295 XL engine. U pping the ante at over 100 kph and named for the largest trebuchet of medieval Earth; The Loup de Guerre will do more than level a stone wall: It will leap over them with its Jump-Jets and stack the cards against defenders with its SSRMs, SRMs, Medium Pulse Lasers, BAP and AMS. Destiny is truly with Trebuchet owners, who will also get to enjoy our first art revision of icons and visual weapon customization on these Mechs.
The original 'War Wolf' may have surprised enemies into surrender, but such good fortune might not happen again today. With fate in mind, we also have five new hanging charms to decorate your cockpit. Unverified claims suggest they originate from mystical wildlife of five worlds far off in the periphery and provide magical benefits to their wearers. While no pixels were harmed in the creation of these accessories, such baubles may still seem exotic to those who take more inspiration from their roots. Many MechWarriors trace their lineage back to that place called Earth, and we have something for those who really feel proud of the place they call home: Thirty-five standing flags representing some of the top homes of our fans, with more to come down the line.
Serendipity moves us from International to Interface. The UI 2.X system has had several auspicious tweaks. Aside from a series of bug fixes, we have the addition of notes on Owned Mechs and the removal of the Shopping Cart Window until changes are made in the Mechlab. We're also taking some of the chance out of matchmaking wait-times with the introduction of a visual Launch indicator for the best weight class to pick.
Whether you are a new recruit or simply looking to fill in your collection, we are fortunate to offer sale bundles highlighting each weight class with the Firestarter, Centurion, Cataphract and Stalker: 3 variants each, including a champion AND hero, their 'Mech Bays, 30 days of Premium Time, and more each for 50% off the normal price.
In the weeks to come, we hope to further your luck with ongoing work in improving matchmaking, gameplay, performance, information on Clans and more. In the meantime, p lease see the notes below for more details on these packages and other changes.
I'm starting fresh with a team to help out the SR 22 with our new vision. Of course all implementations will be ran by command.
All this being said I'd like to submit my promotions and have someone post the below on the front page for me. I need to fiddle around with the front page editor more. I tend to make images too big ... sorry Kusak (hangs head in shame) What size picture is maximum for the website?
Could someone please post the below?
Leif was still unpacking the last of his office when Waeo politely wrapped at the door. Leif welcomed him in with an offer of coffee , donuts and bacon. After pleasantries were exchanged Waeo expressed a devouted interest in helping the SR and the 22nd inparticularly. Leif smiled and hesitated for awhile. The mounds of paperwork on his desk were a testament to a need for help.
Waeo and Leif had a plethora of drops together and started recanting their stories together. The time whisked by when finally Leif was interrupted by a phone call from his domestic RCOM back at homebase. After a curt transmission Leif addressed Waeo. " We are all fortunate to have a pilot such as yourself eagerly seeking to help the SR. Welcome aboard." With that the men shook hands. In the few days inbetween this message Waeo and Leif have already begun drawing out new plans for our new recruits and the SR overall.
We are always interested in hearing from and helping our community. Please welcome Waeo aboard as the new SR 22 attache.
Promotions for the SR 22
Fodder is hereby promoted to Corporal (CP)
Waeo is hereby promoted to Sergeant Major (SGM)
We also welcome aboard Fighder as a permanent SR 22 member. If you're looking to help the Skye Rangers and want to be a permanent member or commander in the SR 22 please message me and Waeo
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!
