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.
Harebrained Schemes is pleased to announce their return to Kickstarter this Fall to partner with Backers in co-funding the creation of BATTLETECH. Jordan Weisman, the creator of BattleTech and MechWarrior, is back with the first turn-based BattleTech game for PC in over two decades. Steeped in the feudal political intrigue of the BattleTech universe, the game will feature an open-ended Mercenaries-style campaign that blends RPG ‘Mech and MechWarrior management with modern turn-based tactics.
~Kusak eyed the pile of requisitions on his desk that were all filled out precisely and couldn't help but question how many hours were spent filling them out as he looked back up at the officer across his desk with his perfectly pressed uniform as he tried to tune out the officers tirade about the other pile of requisitions that had come in from the line units and in particular about the requisitions that were on post it notes written in crayon that graced the corner of his desk. With a sigh Kusak leaned forward steep ling his fingers in front of his face as he looked intently at the way to perfect uniform of the col across from him. He couldn't help but notice his admin assistant getting really small as she recognized the gesture of her boss~ So you mean to tell me that these requisition from a line unit that is in contact on the front line <he makes a gesture at the post it notes> are inappropriate and unacceptable and that you are not going to follow my orders and fill them? Do I understand you correctly on this? ~The Col not catching the deadly tone of his commanders voice nodded and continued on~ Yes sir they are completely unacceptable and I refuse to fill them till they are done correctly. ~Kusak Nodded and leaned back opening his top desk drawer and extracting the ancient Colt 1911 that rested there and laid it on his desk~ Col you are fired. Be off the planet by nightfall if you know what is best for you. ~ He watched the mans mouth move with no sound for a couple of seconds before he managed to make his body move and depart from Kusak's office~
~His assistant waited till the man had left before she spoke~ You do remember Sir that he was a noble correct?
~Kusak Grinned happily~ Yup I sure did why I didn't just shoot him instead. Would you please be so nice as to run down to the comm office and have someone politely advise Col Zipper that he just got himself promoted to my QMR:A it appears that I need a new one. And he would seem to be just the person to make sense out of these Post it note requisitions that he keeps submitting. And make sure he does not bring the crayons into his new office and that he has an appropriate supply of pens and pencils because if higher up see's this.
~His admin giggled softly before she disappeared out of his office like a ghost on her latest assignment~
Id like to thank Zipper for being drafted/volunteering to be my new Attache. He will remain the CO of the 4th but with his new title he is now also a member of Brigade command. It has been a long time coming but it is well deserved. In the coming weeks months. Years. Centuries we will be working on getting the mech bay and other projects back on track
Collision Changes From July 21st Are Being Reverted Posted by Alexander Garden on Today, 06:09 PM in Patch Feedback - 1.3.413 Hey all,
As outlined in this sub-forum by a few players so far (and noticed by many more), the changes to collision that rolled out in the July 21st patch had some unfortunate side effects. Increased leg damage and 'Sticky Mech Syndrome' are the two most critical issues that were introduced by these changes.
As a result, in the August 4th patch we are going to be rolling back those collision changes to the way things were prior to the July 21st patch.
to remind everyone that 'Mech stacking is considered an exploit. Stacking 'Mechs in a standard or CW match can lead to moderation action against the accounts in question. Private matches are generally up to the participants to decide what's acceptable and what isn't.
The changes to collision rolled out in the July 21st patch had the side effect of greatly increasing the stacking potential for 'Mechs, but for that and other reasons we are going to be reverting those collision changes in the August 4th patch. Those collision changes also led to increased leg damage when colliding with 'Mechs and geometry, along with something I'm calling 'Sticky 'Mech Syndrome'.
Just so that this post isn't entirely a downer, here is a glimpse at the Final FormTM of the siege tower.
THIS MEANS IF YOU SEE A TEAM USING IT>>> REPORT IT!
It is my firm belief that Lt-Col The13 is long overdue to receive the bump to full bird Colonel.
His work with the 25th, specifically his efforts to integrate the Polish Mechanized Hussars into the fold of the SR and his continuing work running one of the largest and most nationally diverse regiments in the Brigade can easily be seen to justify this salary increase. (Plus he would qualify for dental )
Thank you for your attention in this matter.
HPT-GEN Alexander Fury MaA 22nd Skye Rangers RCT Commanding Officer Sanglamore Academy of Skye
Congrats, The13, and thanks for all your hard work !!!
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!
