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.
Welcome to the 'Weight of the World' Personal Challenge and Leaderboard Event!
We're trying something a little different for this Event, with four Personal Challenges and four Leaderboards to cover the four Weight Classes.
Cumulative Challenge Details and Conditions
The Personal Challenge portions of this event are 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 2,500 DMG in the Medium Weight Class Personal Challenge before August 23rd at 10:00 AM PDT would reward you with 2 Supply Caches. Likewise, racking up a combined total of 2,500,000 C-Bills in the Assault Weight Class through the course of the event will reward you with an additional one-time reward of 25 MC and 500,000 C-Bills.
Your progress in a Personal Challenge component is specific to each Weight Class! Matches in which you've used a Light 'Mech will only contribute toward your progress for the Light 'Mech Personal Challenge, for example.
However, you are not limited to playing in a single Weight Class for this Event. If you wish you could simply attempt to achieve only certain goals for certain Weight Classes.
Each Weight Class only has a single Leaderboard. All 'Mechs within the same Weight Class will contribute to the same Leaderboard.
The 'Most Contributing Mech' column is automatically populated according to whichever 'Mech chassis has contributed the highest cumulative Score (in the least amount of matches) across the 10 Best Overall Matches for that player.
'Total Score' is the total score for that player as a whole in the associated Leaderboard, according to the standard Formula listed in the Leaderboard Event Conditions.
Reports of the ongoing invasion blasted from the television across the office. Then came the news about a group of Grey Death mercenaries assisting with a retreat of steiner forces. He sent them there knowing it would be a losing battle, but that was not the mission anyway. The mission was complete when the retreating mechs managed to reach their dropships and pull out. Sweat rolled down the side of his face as he watched tensely at the live feed from the orbiting sattellite. Two of his mechs looked badly broken but held on long enough to barely make it into Phobos.
"Damn it all! I should be there!" LT-COL Sevronis exclaimed as he slammed down an empty glass. It was bad enough his crew was stretched out thin and repair costs mostly outweighed the income, but right now he couldn't even join the fight. His left leg was in a cast, propped up on his desk. It wasn't log before he realized what made this situation worse - he was out of rum.
"Well at least they put up a good fight." He reached over to his keyboard, and rested it on his lap. "They deserve their pay at least. Report is about due soon anyway," he stated and started typing.

The battles have been hard fought, but pulling through. My crew have successfully assisted in the retreat of Steiner forces against Clan onslaught on...a planet I cannot remember the name of. I have attached all documented papers for assigned engagements as well as award submissions and changes. That will be all.
P.S. - May negotiate additonal resources on next contract. I'm out of rum over here.
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!
