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.
It is my disctinct honor to announce the selection of COL Xenon54z as the new Regiment Commander (RCOM) of the Skye Province Militia (SPM). LT-GEN MrDoggss is stepping down as RCOM of the SPM. Although it is with regret that MrDoggss' is resigning as leader of the SPM, as he related to me, he's been doing it for so long (and a damn fine job I might add), he's ready to move on to something different in the SR and to take a much needed vacation to Mizar :)
COL Xenon54z is already a longstanding RCOM of our MegaMek Team, the 4th Skye Guard and has also been a member of the SPM for ages. As such, Xenon is perfectly qualified to fill MrDoggss' large shoes.
I wish Xenon much success in the new post. MrDoggss has elected to remain in the SPM and to assist in the transition of the day to day trudgery of a RCOM's duties.
Thanks MrDoggss for your assistance to the guild and to Xenon for stepping up to assist the SPM !
March 15th brings a lot of new goodies to MWO. First is a huge patch, fixing many issues and adding a new map to the game.
The patch also includes a new game mode called Domination for Quick Play, new Champion mechs for all players (including different drop decks for default Faction Warfare), some changes to how Flamers work and much more! Read the patch notes here.
Second, the Archer has arrived! This is a classic missile-based mech. Get those AMS units out of storage and prepare for LRM rain for the next week!
LT-COL Sevronis plopped down into his chair and shuffled around a few sheets of paper. He leaned over to his intercom speaker, turned it on, and tapped on the head a few times. "Attention all GDL crew. I have a quick announcement of promotions, though a bit later than I planned due to communication interruptions," his voice boomed over the speakers. "Araevin, Jaqknife, Arcarius, Lugerron, and Ctank and promoted to Corporal. Griffster and Theman are promoted to Senior Corporal. Lastly, Collosai is our first new LCOM."
He could hear a mixture of cheers, shouts, and (unsurprisingly) fighting. "Those who I just called out, report to my office. The rest of you get to the maintenance bay, we have new salvage comin' in. That is all."
Leap year. For those born on February 29th, just think you've only aged 1/4 of the rest of us. Congrats! lol
Things have been quiet in the SPM offices, with people just doing their thing. Taking the fight to the enemy, supporting the brigade, and generally having a good time. Keep it up! Last month I was able to hand out the first award in many months, and I hope to see more opportunities to recognize the efforts of our members soon.
Garrick Kael has been awarded the Master Qualified badge. A great milestone for a mechwarrior!
Now for the Time in Group promotions.

Thank you, to all who support the Skye Rangers, and congratulations to these members!
May your aim be true, and your weapons strong! Good hunting Rangers!
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!
