Mercenary Corporations can bid and fight for occupation rights of border worlds throughout the Inner Sphere. Merc Corps must bid on a planet’s occupation rights via a system of contracts generated by the game.
A match or series of matches are set up between the defending Merc Corp and the challenger. The victor is determined from the results of each match, and takes control of the planet. They are rewarded with an immediate contract payout, and will continue to earn rewards while they occupy the planet.
Mercs have "occupation rights". Mercs outright occupy the planet, and are charged to defend it from any chanllengers. This sounds almost identical to WoT and GA's system.
However its sounds like ANY merc can challenge the occupying merc. So for example, a merc loyal to DC can be challenged by another merc loyal to DC ...(DC not caring as long as the most capable Merc gets the contract and defends it in their name). Which again..all of it resembling WoT and GA's system very closely.
