What I want to know (the above mentioned thread being the catalyst for me to post) is how are people supposedly "laying claim" to clans and even other IS houses and units? I've not seen anything official about this actually being allowed yet, especially where the clans are concerned because thus far the only pseudo-confirmation we've yet received that they will even be in the game is a "wink" in the FAQ.
I'm quite sure I can throw out old stats from past leagues which are every bit as legit as anyone elses (Ice Hellion Star Commander in Grand Council in MW2 and MW2 Mercs, saKhan and then Khan (and co-founder) of Wolf Clan in original NBT in MW2 Mercs era, Lieutenant in Wolf's Dragoons in a league whose name I can't even remember, and XO of Excalibur RCT (merc unit) ten years later in the NBT again in MW4 Mercs), A lot of us have a lot of experience "back in the day" of the Mechwarrior heyday in the mid to late 90s, as well as table top and reading every source book and novel etc, and that is all a very good thing. Heck, I was still in the infantry in Germany when I first played Crescent Hawks Inception and the original Mechwarrior (1) in 1989.
So just how will Piranha be handling this?
At any rate, I'm thinking there will be far too many of us to be able to just "lay claim" to any given unit. It will be a serious and contentious thing that I'm hoping Piranha will come up with as fair a way as possible for this to happen.
(That's not even beginning to cover the time when/if the Clans are actually announced and 75% of IS units get abandoned in the mad rush to claim clans)
