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 23rd 4:00:01 PM (PST) / Feb 24th 12:00:01 AM (UTC) Ends: Feb 28th 3:59:59 PM (PST) / Feb 28th 11:59:59 PM (UTC) Time Left:93:36:51
Welcome to the Supernova event! This week we're running an event more specifically catered toward Supernovas and Supernova pilots.
Why so exclusive? Well, we are also planning on running the Skill Tree PTS during this time with the latest and greatest Skill Tree build and we want your feedback. Some details regarding that upcoming update to the PTS build can be found here.
That said, everyone can still earn 3 Days of Active Premium Time during this Supernova event by completing the Star Destroyer Personal Challenge, because hey, we need to keep these Supernova pilots on their toes!
Supernova owners have a bounty of goods to collect, so if you don't own a Supernova Package now might be a good time to buy one!

Lt-Gen The Zpiier started off with " I see that our regiment is a casual group...as in plays part-time. I'd like to see some kind of coordinated effort to get together on a regular basis. If you are an officer and hold a position, this is your JOB. If you'd like to surrender your position (LCOM, CCOM, BCOM) , let it be known you will maintain your rank. I just need a suitable replacement, so present to me someone willing to do it." "With all that said, promotions are as follows":
Jonas Fenmore : promoted to SSGM Lord Skippy : promoted to LT1
Sincerely, Lt Gen The Zipper AS, HoS, OTT, KOS, GPM , McH, RBW, MQ, and QMR
All, I just wanted to update everyone. I just checked our TS server billing statement and we are paid up for another year:

It was time to make up for lost profit opportunities during December, but that was expected when most were on holiday leave. The new year opened with immediate contract assignments to the majority of the regiment, even COL Sevronis joined in on several of them. As the days passed on, many of the contracts required special care of varied degrees. It had become obvious a group for special operations was needed. Sevronis already had two pilots in mind to lead this new group, the problem was deciding which one. Zimobog had rank over Kurbeks currently, but the latter had been the the Legion much longer.
"A Trial of Position," Sevronis stated calmy, standing with Zimobog and Kurbeks in the barracks, while other pilots gathered around. "You want us to have a what?" Kurbeks replied with a puzzled look. The Colonel smirked and gave a chuckle. "Sorry, old habits. What I mean is a duel. In this case I'll say it's five rounds, one for each weight class with the final round being the choice of whoever is losing after the fourth match." "Sounds like fun. I'm game," Zimobog approved with a nod and crossed arms. Kurbeks nodded his approval as well. "Excellent, I know just the place," Sevronis added gleefully, wringing his hands.
Everyone had gathered at a small canyon a ways outside HQ. The opponents faced each other down in the center with the spectators up on the ridges, and their Phobos dropship nearby. One point was to be awarded for engine desctruction, while crippling a leg or neutering an oponent's weapon bays each awarded a point as well. The duel began with light 'mechs, of which Kurbeks took the first round win, adding another win in the medium class round to his total. Zimobog managed to take the win in the Heavy round, but lost a second win to Kurbeks in the Assault round. With Kurbeks currently in the lead, it was Zimobog's pick for the final round, of which they remained in assaults. Unfortunately, luck had not been with him this time, as Kurbeks pulled in another victory. After the matches, everyone gathered near Phobos.
"Well that was entertaining," Sevronis announced higher up on the entry ramp. "No better way to solve a mercenary dispute than with a duel, and with this I proclaim Kurbeks the new LCOM of the Black Ops lance, with Zimobog and Durando under him. Just need to find you a fourth." Cheers roared up all around until the Colonel held up a hand for silence. "From this point forward, I'm also going to allow sanctioned duels between Legion pilots and anyone can be challenged. Hell toss in a wager or two while you're at it." The cheering grew again, and it wasn't long before Sevronis felt a small instance of regret at announcement. Several pilots immediately challenged their RCOM, all waging on a promotion if they won, or lower pay for a month if they lost. They all won.
"And this is why I don't gamble...", Sevronis sighed to himself as he watched the last 'mech he lost in being dragged into Phobos by the salvage team.
It is Skye Command's distinct pleasure to announce the selection of SenSGM William Slayer of the Snords Irregulars as 'Mechwarrior of the Month for February. Concurrent with this honor, he has been awarded the McKennsy's Ground Pounders Medal (GPM) and his name will be prominently displayed on all of our Roster pages for the entire month.
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!
