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.
Our Teamspeak (TS) server annual subscription is coming due January 1, 2016. We only have $25 banked against the new year (which costs us $254.49/12 months)!
As such, I need to ask that all of you that regularly use our TS channel, to pony up some $ for the renewal next month.
If we do not meet the goal I will try and cover the difference but everyone needs to be advised I am not paying for the whole thing myself
Please go to the link below and donate what you can.
Thanks & Brigade Up !
Update 12.01.15 - we hit just $322 positive balance after only 15 donations over the past 48 hours! Color me impressed! I will unstickify the call for donations but please remember donations are open at all times...just use the above graphic link in the right hand column module on our main page to go right to the TS donations page. Thanks, all !!!
Thirdly, a challenge event is running, with the chance to win premium time, consumable packs, fully unlocked colours and MC. The event rewards from both public drops and faction warfare, so there's a lot to win!
Finally, all XP gain is doubled over the weekend! XP can also be converted for double gains.
This looks like a great opportunity to make some MWO money, buy some top mechs and skill them up for future Faction Warfare!
Don't forget - We are still collecting C-bills in the MWO account. Please remember to make a donation if you do well.
PGI has announced the release of four Performance Packs for MWO. These packs each consist of one Champion Inner Sphere 'mech and one Champion Clan Omnimech with mechbays and a Phranken pattern and colours applied to them. The packs also come with 30 days premium time and a good handful of MC (1500-4000, depending on the package). PGI also threw in a handful of C-bills as well.
These packages are clearly aimed at new Steam users and come in light, medium, heavy and assault versions. Since players will still have to buy two other varients in order to master the mechs, they are clearly going for aesthetics over performance!
I want a BILLION C-BILLS in our unit Coffers by the end of the year. To that end we will be haveing a fundraising CONTEST. The Skye Ranger who can screen shot the biggest donation and post it HERE will be declared the winner. Past donations DO NOT COUNT. Only Donations made from this date forward.
We will also track our progress HERE! and with occasional Front Page posts.
Now We have a CW event this weekend and I am aiming for us to break 500,000,000 before the end of the weekend. Lets get out there and raise some C-Bills for the cause!!!!!!
UPDATE 11.17.15: WE DID IT! We got over the 500,000,000 million mark and are on the way to 600,000,000! Awesome work Skye Rangers! Now some of you have asked Why Donate? The unit Coffers don't DO anything yet. Well folks Drops Ships ain't cheap, and we need to have the cash in hand for when the times comes. We need a Billion in the bank, so lets get there!
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!
