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.
As you may already know, PayPal Credit is not yet available for MechWarrior Online purchases under the new Xsolla portal. When attempting to process a transaction with PayPal Credit the majority of players receive a message that they need to return to PayPal to select a different funding source.
We are in the process of working with Xsolla and PayPal to resolve this, as there appears to be a technical issue preventing integration of PayPal Credit.
PayPal is currently requesting that PayPal Credit users provide us with the source code of the transaction failure/funding source error page.
If you have recently submitted a ticket to email@example.com regarding issues with PayPal Credit, we may follow up with you with the steps required to get the information that PayPal has requested.
If you are a PayPal Credit user, but have not recently submitted a ticket about these issues, and if you're up for running through some minor technical steps to help us get the information required for PayPal, please send off a ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading 'PayPal Credit issue'."
I hear from our XO (GEN-KM Hrunting) that he is getting daily requests to update folks' ranks in game. As such, it's getting to be that time to update our in game SRoT Roster.
As such, over the next 1-2 weeks, I will be personally going through the MWO in game guild (SRoT) roster and updating positions and AWOL checks manually.
Unfortunately, there's (still) not a robust guild management tool in MWO Faction panel, so I will do it the old fashioned way.
However, ALL SR members MUST make sure that their in game names match their SR guild website roster name (to avoid inadvertent MWO roster deletion by yours truly). Your main account display name here on the website MUST match your in game MWO pilot name or you risk removal/deletion from the in game roster (i.e., I am not going to try and guess).
You can change your SR website account display name easily on the website under your Profile panels. Not sure you can change your name in MWO, but you may be able to change it there to match as well.
Feel free to shoot me an email with any questions.
::Hrunting, readies himself to leave his enormous office for the day, the duties and demands of the Brigade XO are not all that bad and the perks like this office and the secret cavernous stash of Steiner 69 Hans left behind the portrait of the Archon and bright shiney ban hammer Ashuraa left in the drawer aren't bad either, he checks his appearance in the mirror and remembers for the first time that afternoon that he is wearing his dress kilt::
Hrunting> hmmmmm, I believe I may have forgotten something…
Lovely Assistant> Um sir?….The promotions ceremony sir. It’s now….sir!
Hrunting> Oh….yes, quite right!
::Hrunting grabs a folder off the corner of his desk marked in oil and tape that says 10th RCOM stuffs, it is covered in dust and has a June date on it, he then grabs his cap and rushes out the door and up to the podium outside. Hrunting nods to Parduke who is sleeping behind him, then to yerdead who is looking in the other direction and then frantically to M4sterfl4sh and nods his head to the assembled crowd::
M4sterfl4sh>oh, uh….Black watch, 10th Skye Rangers Regiment be at...A’TEN-SHUN!
::The regiment snaps to attention resplendent in their dress uniforms and kilts::

I have taken a poll from among the tournament players and it has been decided that a removal of the two loss elimiation rule would benefit everyone and the tournament as a whole. Instead there will be a total of 5 weeks of play as shown in the ladder/standing graphic below this paragraph, and each win will give a team 10pts. A loss awards 5pts. Totals at the end of the 5 weeks of play will determine the tourney winner. All teams will continue to fight for the right to enjoy that return safe voyage back from clanner territory to the innersphere systems.
As usual all matches will be played Saturdays, @ 9pm EST, unless otherwise scheduled by team leaders.
Now for the updated standings. Good luck in Week 3 teams!
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!
