Greetings MechWarriors,

The servers and website will be coming down for maintenance today at 10AM PST for a duration of approximately 3 hours. You won't be able to log in to the website for a duration of 1 hour.

Patch Notes:



Greetings MechWarriors

The day is upon us! UI 2.0 is here and it is glorious! Cue dramatic music! … Hold on just a minute.
Yes UI 2.0 is here and that is a good thing however It isn’t perfect. It almost wasn’t shipped today due to some issues we discovered at the last minute.
So I need to tell you about these issues and what we are doing to fix them.
  • First - We have a log in issue that can affect a low percentage of users. If you are hit with this issue please be patient as you can restart the client and attempt another log in do this until you succeed. Skipping the video intros with the ESC key also seems to lower the chance.
  • Second We have an issue with consumables that are used during a match not being unequipped, yet they are not valid for the next match. You can avoid this bug by not leaving matches early or equipping modules for the time being.
  • Third – Activate BANKED premium time currently doesn’t work– so if you have banked time and you were going to activate it today you’re going to have to wait for the HOT FIX!
  • Fourth - we have an issue with Camo Spec not showing up correctly . This is fairly minor so just leave the screen and return and it should be fine.
See the quick overview and get acquainted with the new UI 2.0 Interface:





Did you say HOT FIX? Yes I did. The team has been burning the midnight oil to get UI 2.0 out to you, and while it isn’t perfect, it is a step in the right direction. The above issues are our number one priority to get fixed asap. We’re going to address the most critical issues in a hot fix once we have confirmed fixes.


There are some other cool things in this patch so let’s talk about those.

Firestarter hero ‘Mech Ember is here. As Doge would say! WOW, SUCH HARDPOINTS! MUCH POTENTIAL, VERY 30% C-BILLS. I don’t pilot light myself but this mech has converted me. I MUST MASTER THIS MECH!
2 maps have been updated with Turrets in assault mode. Crimson Straight and River City so when you play there maps watch out. We’re going to watch the match data and looking for your constructive feedback on the current implementation before we move ahead placing these turrets in other maps.
Finally Tier 1 Weapon Modules are here! These modules affect range and should make for an interesting tradeoff for certain types of builds. Again were going to be watching the data and listening to feedback.
This is the start of UI2.0 and its only going to get better. See you on the Battlefield.
Matt Newman

Known Issues under immediate investigation




The following issues are under investigation for a potential hot-fix later this week
  • Players may on occasion become stuck shortly after login with a 'Connecting' message displayed onscreen. This issue will normally manifest if the client was closed immediately after changing the selected `Mech. Attempting to log in again will normally resolve this issue.
  • The Activate Button for Banked Premium Time is currently non-functional. A fix is in place that will be deployed at the earliest opportunity.
  • Used consumables may rarely behave as if they were not consumed within the UI after a leaving a match. When attempting to re-equip a consumable module in this condition, a error message will be presented. This issue can sometimes result from quitting matches before they have concluded. In testing this issue does not present itself if the player observed the match end. Current workaround - log out and log back in again to ensure correct consumable module behavior. Alternately, play through a second match and the Mechlab should behave normally.
We thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!

That's the normal time window they usually give. Rarely goes that long.
