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.
Starts: FEB 18th 10:00:00 AM (PST) (6:00:00 PM UTC) Ends: FEB 22nd 10:00:00 AM (PST) (6:00:00 PM UTC)
Welcome to the Rifleman Leaderboard and Challenge Event! It's time to see who among you can claim superiority in a Rifleman.
This Event is comprised of Leaderboard components for each individual 'Mech variant from our Rifleman Collections, along with a cumulative Personal Challenge reward component that all players are eligible for!
If you don't own a Rifleman 'Mech that qualifies for the Leaderboard event you'll still have plenty of opportunity to earn some rewards in the cumulative Personal Challenge component, or you can pick up a Rifleman Collection if you want to throw down the gauntlet against other Rifleman pilots.
Cumulative Challenge Details and Conditions
The Personal Challenge portion of this Event is based on cumulative achievements in Quick Play only! Faction Play matches do not count toward these cumulative goals.
Check out the Goal and Rewards tables below for all Reward items and conditions. These Goals are cumulative, so achieving a total of 5,000 DMG before February 22nd at 10:00 AM PST would reward you with the .50 Cal Hanging Item and 50 MC. Likewise, racking up a combined total of 2,000,000 C-Bills through the course of the event will reward you with an additional one-time reward of 500,000 C-Bills.

PGI have just released the patch notes for next week!
Four brand new 'grey block' test maps are being released in this patch, intended purely with future competitive gameplay in mind. We'll be actively seeking your feedback on the layout and sight lines in these maps from a competitive standpoint. To that end we'll soon be establishing a dedicated sub-forum to compile feedback and centralize discussion not just regarding these new test maps, but toward competitive gameplay in MWO as a whole. We intend to iterate on these maps with every patch.
This patch additionally features an array of gameplay-related fixes and changes, including Quirk adjustments for both Inner and Clan 'Mechs, improvements to MASC, Clan Targeting Computers, and Flamers, and a number of general 'quality of life' improvements, such as a fix for the random assignment of leadership, a fix for an issue with the Capture Accelerator Module, a fix for extra fall damage being received when Leg Structure Quirks were present, and more.
This patch also includes a number of fixes and changes for maps, 'Mechs, and miscellaneous, including an array of Jump Jet animation fixes, the addition of breakable objects to the Crimson Strait and Canyon Network Quick Play Maps and breakable trees in the Sulfurous Rift Faction Play Map, a retrofit of the Stalker weapon visuals, collision improvements to Caustic Valley, and much more.
Whether we've been seeing each other since Beta, or we just met, we're so glad that you're spending time with us this Valentine's Day weekend. As a thank you, we have a bunch of Valentine's gifts for you to obtain.
We're trying something a little different this time around: the Prizes are a mystery! Achieve them to discover the Reward, or check the forums for revelations from other players.
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!
