Posted 30 January 2016 - 12:48 AM

Name: Mike
Age: 26
Call sign: cattabliss
Timezone: Pacific Standard
House/Faction: Been jumping around collecting mech bays. Prefer rowdier ones like Jade Falcon, FRR
Play style: Support, usually aiming for ranges of 200-700 metres, prefer ballistics, lasers and srms, in that order; likes to bring ecm
Preferred weight: medium/heavy
Preferred chassis: Ebon Jaguar (mastered) Marauder (mastered) Cicada (elite) Cataphract (elite). Have 16 mechs in total.
Experience: I've been playing since the Steam launch and my counter says that's 250 hours of in-game time, though actual play time is likely lower than that. I've jumped head first into CW and tallied off a fair share of quick play matches. My typical damage count on one of the above named mechs is 400-600 in a quick play match. In CW it can depend on the team, but I range from 800-1700 in 90% of matches.

I'm looking for a large enough unit that has players online most days of the week. Am tired of joining pug matches where I have little control over the outcome. I can join TS but I rely on my phone for a mic, so it might not be the best quality. Personally, I'm a big fan of the Battletech franchise and have been following the game series on and off since MW2, so folks that are into lore would be a plus for me.

Posted 30 January 2016 - 10:22 AM

Name: Rod
Age: 31
Call sign: Slumber
Timezone: -3 GMT
House/Faction: FRR
Play style: Support and brawler. I love flanking and out-manuvering my oponents.
Preferred weight: Any
Preferred chassis: Dragon (1N, elite), Battlemaster (2C, elite)
Experience: Played it from the early days, and saw many of the new features of the game being roled out. Spent a while away from the game, then came back when it launched on Steam.

I'd absolutely love to go in a match and have a plan that does not consist of "don't die" or similar jokes. I'd rather try some coordinated strategy (even if we fail) than just go with the flow and hope my team is less of an idiot than the other team.

Name: Jick O' Shadows

Callsign: Jick/ Shadows
Timezone: CST (GMT -6)
House/Faction: None so far. No preference.
Playstyle: Fast and harrassing. I typically go for assists and attempt to distract enemies.
Roletype: Flanking. Recon. Light hunting, if in good group.
Preferred Weight: I've only ever tried Lights so far. Assaults seem way to slow for me, and I'm not sure about heavies.
Experience: I've played this for about a week now I think. I played some MW2.
1 game of Classic table top. Everyone else quit after that day without telling me.
I'm actually incredibly crappy.
My KD ratio is crappy since I normally go for assists.
I've so far piloted 2 different urban mechs (1 has mastered basic efficiencies, working on the other now), 1 firestarter, and a COM th at I finished elite efficiencies on, (as well as 2 other coms with only basic, ofc)
I've met the best results so far with a speedy COM using only 1 SRM6 and 1 MPL.

I am currently trying to fill my first semi serious drop deck with my spotter and marauder done, still working on my KCrab and no idea what to fill the last 55 tons with.
Just looking for a group to shoot big stompy robots with our big stompy robots and maybe occasionally point out that that Atlas over yonder is walking around with an open CT for four minutes now.
I shoot straight, I read my guides and I have so many tabletop memories to share that you'll be sick of it in no time.

Name: Schonnes

Callsign: Schonnes
Timezone: CET
House/Faction: Liao / Mercenary
Playstyle: scouting - patient - waiting for the right moment - then hit fast and hard
Roletype: Scout / Light Brawler
Preferred Weight: 35t (Raven Huginn - my absolute favorite)
I'm playing for about 6-8 weeks I guess. 125 games with my Huginn - KDR of 1.51 and 1.10 W/L Ratio... I hit a Match Score of 400+ frequently... Some times 500+ - but that's really good games...
My problem - that's in PUG... And I want to get better in Teamplay - and I guess you only can learn that playing in units... :)

So - I'm curious if anyone will notice - and contact me.

Regards - Schonnes

Name: Kite

Callsign: Valfrey
Timezone: US Central UTC -6
House/Faction: Don't have one right now
Playstyle: Used to snipe a lot when I last played, but I've been brawling recently with hilarious results
Roletype: I can do what's needed
Preferred Weight: Medium or above.
Experience: Played during beta, stopped around 2013. Reinstalled last week.

Mechs I've been using a lot the past week include the jaeger, quickdraw, atlas, catapult, and griffin.

My match scores to seem to vary quite a bit in the public matches, depending on team comp. I can hit over 1k in damage if I'm on fire, or I can quickly can die in a fire and do under 100. Probably averaging around 400-500.

Still really rusty, and I honestly don't know half the mechs right that well now. I don't know jack about CW, but I really want to do that. Please halp.

I use teamspeak a lot for other games, but I have mumble as well.

Looking for a solid unit to run with for both pub and cw. I'd like to get competitive once I stop sucking. Definitely looking to learn, as this game has changed a lot.

(Blackwind Lancers was my old beta unit)

Name: Sean
Age: 29
Callsign: PersestheTITAN
Timezone: EST
House/Faction: Jade Falcon (I only have clan mechs right now)
Playstyle: Mid-range, support, assault
Roletype: Team-player
Preferred Weight: Heavy, assault
Preferred chassis: Dire Wolf, Timber Wolf, Ebon Jaguar
Experience: ~6 months on MWO, Mechwarrior 1-3, many hours playing strategy games and shooters on Xbox and PC.

I'm married, have a full time job and am taking graduate classes...so on days that I do have time to go on it will usually be for 2-3 hours max. I've been playing MWO solo for a short while now and am what you would call addicted. I would say that I am an above-average player, and prefer playing CW however it has really sucked recently in clan Jade Falcon. I'd really like to start winning CW matches again. I could quote some of my stats in quick-play (positive K/D and win ratio) but since I play CW a lot more often it doesn't really mean anything.

I'm looking for a large enough unit that is online on the weekend and most weeknights, but is not serious enough to demand a big time commitment.

Name: Stuart
Callsign: gearheadstu
Timezone: EST
House/Faction: definitely IS, no faction in particular
Playstyle: SRM brawlers or mid-range laser/ballistic support
Roletype: Team cohesion
Preferred Weight: Medium, Heavy
Preferred Chassis: Blackjacks, Griffs, and Quickdraws. Eagerly awaiting Riflemen.
Experience: Started playing the day before Steam launch.

In Solo PUG land, I generally do pretty well; top 1/3rd in damage, lots of KMDD/assists. Of course, sometimes I get roflstomped, but that's how things go in PUGs. I focus a lot more on helping secure the overall win than I do pushing for individual kills; I have the Johnny Five achievement but am not really expecting Ace of Spades.

I want to be part of a team that plays well together. Good comms, good coordination, and good fun; good results can come as a bonus.

(UPDATE: 13 March 2016) For those of you who have contacted me, I am grateful for your care and your interest, but I think I still have to step back for a while. There's still enough about this game which doesn't exist, yet, to keep me from doing more than a few matches here and there. My interest, otherwise, revolves around trying out my new Archers and the new map this coming Tuesday. Until there's Objective Based Warfare, an actual system for mercenary unit management, actual contracting -BattleTech style-, and a real reason for playing on the Inner Sphere map, I may not be joining anyone. My apologies to those who've put forward the effort.

Name: Paul / Kay Wolf

Callsign: Redwolf
Timezone: Pacific Time / West Coast U.S.
House/Faction: Mercenary, through and through; I utterly despise Liao, but I won't mind as long as someone else is calling the shots, I think.
Playstyle: I'm an LRM guy to the core, and I work almost exclusively in support of my team mates. If someone calls a target, and I'm not already tuning up a bad guy close to death, I'll switch focus and help out. With those two things in mind, support and LRMs, I try to stick close behind the pack and support. Once I'm out of LRM ammo, though, I'm not a bad stick with lasers; I absolutely stink with dakka.
Roletype: As stated, primarily LRM support.
Preferred Weight: Heavy, though I've no qualms going with Medium or Assault, and have what I feel are good 'Mechs in all three categories.
Experience: I am deeply experienced with tabletop BattleTech, since 1984, with NetMech 95, starting in 1997, MW2: Mercs, and all MechWarrior and MechCommander computer games since, without 'Mech Assault. You can see my service record with my own unit, here... http://www.wolvesau....mbers/Wolf-MSR/ (look at all the tabs across the top), and my history with BattleTech, here... http://www.wolvesau....U/rwhistory.php .

I am not looking for a command at this time, and would prefer to find a unit of old timey Army and Marine Corps guys who understand PTSD and really weird work schedules, and who are martial enough to be organized, but who also understand real-life is not cool, much of the time. I am forty-four years old, will turn another year at the end of July and, like I said, I have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder -a bit on the serious side- and a job as an Instructor with no set hours at all. My most likely times to be able to play will be on Friday and/or Saturday nights, and then allowances for Holidays and days off.

Feel free to PM me, though I check my PMs in accordance with my life schedule, as well, and may not catch up with you for several days. If you're young, dumb, and full of ..., especially as a leader, please do not contact me; you'll just end up wasting your time and mine. However, if you have a freakin' clue and know what you're doing... well, let's just say that, before I was able to afford to upgrade my desktop, my Tier 4 rating was in free-fall. But, now that I've upgraded, it's been pretty steadily climbing ever since.

I am the absolute best LRM guy you will find, by the way, and I have a tendency of putting those "easy mode" and '"n00b weapons" BS comments in their place. No Faction Warfare for me until PGI fixes it to be something more than forty-five minute shots of the PUG Queue, such as with Objective-based Warfare, actual contracts and not "choose a house", among other things.
