Welcome Euro warriors, i'm glad to see this catch on. There's only 2 ways that I see it that they will incorporate Merc's into the game,
Either A: Closed registration - meaning that only certain members can be affiliated with that name (maybe through invite) so if that's the case then we all invite each other into the WD's because we are all WD's at heart.
B: Open registration - Anyone can be a WD's which still gives us advantages as combined unit. Like WoT, they have platoons (for us we'll say lance) within the matches, say BW's field's 1 lance and Alpha field's another lance and the remaining are individuals for the battle of WD's vs Acme Merc's. We know through constant training and fighting along side each other that the 2 Organized Lances will have a leg-up over the enemy due to communications and fighting beside each other for awhile like any guild/clan/unit.
I run another clan for Red Orchestra 1/2/DH, created realism campaigns and a admin at Forgotten Honor Campaigns and believe me, when you have a bunch of under-powered units, together when they fight as 1 is just as effective as a single unit. Just to clarify this, this is not a way to take over each others units or i'm trying to take over units. What would happen basicly is say Black Widows has a battle coming up and say each side can deploy 25 mechs but they can only field 21 mechs. They can ask Alpha, Bravo and whoever else is available to supply a lance. The commander of the BW's could tell them to hold/capture objective A and would listen to their orders since it's their main battle/force. This has worked perfectly in the past in other games and i'm sure would be benefical for us to do so here.
Since there is so many WD's units I think it will give us more members then most other mercs comp. and means we'll be very organized/effective for battles.
