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.
Congratulations to all who participated in the battle of Tukayyid and earned their Battle of Tukkayid participant banner. Hang on to those things, they are going to be important.*
As the dust settles on Tukayyid it is time to reflect. The battle is lost, the Clanners have won but not all hope is lost. Perhaps, just perhaps it was all a dream? I mean the Clans are on the outskirts of the Periphery...right?
The Results are in and though the IS lost the battle the Sky Rangers did well. Steiner faction came in 2nd place for the Inner Sphere and the Skye Rangers were the #1 Steiner unit. Those that participated received both banners and should hang them proudly in their mechs.
(I am putting my "defeat" banner in a clan mech)
Lt Colisai has set up a battle of Tukayyid Thread in the forums for any and all to reminisce, post screen shots or tell tales tall ones or short ones. You can go to it HERE
ALSO, I am requesting of ALL RCOMS to make a list of all members of their regiments that participated in the battle of Tukayyid. Command is working on a surprise for you all and I am hoping you will like it.
In the meantime, the CW map has been re-set, the Clans are at our borders and not all our neighbors are friendly, Defend the Skye March, Defend Steiner Space and Defend the Inner Sphere!!!
As our guild (re-)approaches the 500 Member mark...and with us firing on all cylinders, I decided it was time to get us a new website Admin to assist with the day-to-day management of the website. SFC:A/LT-GEN Cipher/RCOM Snords has therefore had his permissions increased to Admin.
Accordingly, ALL transfer requests, new recruit assignments, and RCOM reports should include Cipher ont he cc: list (Hrunting, Kusak and I should also be copied).
Skye Rangers 4th Regiment Command Reporting from LZ [edited] Command post on Tukayyid Reporting Officer: Col. The Zipper
Respectfully speaking, sir...this planet sucks.... BUT morale was high at the induction ceremony for Orderof the Tamar Tigers we had for Lord Skippy, Drogra and Tulip Lee! Lord Skippy also recieved his Master Qualification Medal and was promoted to Sen. Cpl. Rochow was promoted to Cpl. and also recieved his Master Qualification Medal AND McKennsy Groundpounders Medal. Solid AU was promoted to Cpl. but I see great things from him, and don't expect him to be there for long. Chapster recieved his Tournament Qualification Medal. ...AND Jennings was promoted to Sen. Cpl. and recieved his Tournament Qualification Medal, and is now starting TRAINING for LCOM (I'll keep you appraised of his progress).
Aside from that the 4th is kicking [edited] and taking names.
The view from the Albion jump ship of Tukayyid was an ugly one.
The Zipper seemed to be nervous. He had never awarded an Honor of Skye to anyone quite so young.
The Zipper walked over to the Comms officer and ordered the Lt sitting at the console to call Carlyle Junior and the 4th Regiment to the Conference room for the award . The comms officer looked up at the Col. , and asked "Is this a gimmick, sir?". What followed was a flurry of words that left the Corperal (now) ashen, and silent.
As The Zipper was leaving the Battle Bridge, he said over his shoulder "Find Manchu on Skye. Tell him his vacation is over. He now has 1st Company as Company Commander."
The Sgt sitting next to the newly demoted Cpl said "Things just got serious. Pissing off the Regiment commander of the 4th is not going to go well for those Clanners...you screwed up in a good way, corperal."
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!
