Question about groups names...
Posted 07 May 2012 - 08:32 AM
As many groups that will be joining MWO are previous clans, houses & merc units from past Mechwarrior games, How will it affect the useage of group names in MWO? Seeing MWO is going to follow the Mechwarrior timeline, Clan groups would technicaly not exsist until the clanner invasion correct? As well as some houses, merc units etc.
Will we be allowed to start up using our previous group names? or will we have to wait till our spot in the time line catches up before we can?

Turned out to be a monster thread so I located the post...
Players will NOT be able to claim canon units as their own. When it comes to Mercenary Units/Corps/Companies, these names will not be available during MC creation. Trying to circumvent the naming system will result in the Merc Corp being renamed/denied.
Faction units are being handled slightly different. When a player aligns themselves with one of the major factions, say House Kurita, they will have the opportunity to join famous house units as the rank up by earning loyalty points. Some house units will require additional feats of excellence and challenges to achieve before membership is granted. Since these units are not run by the players, and we can reserve/restrict access to very active/famous units for sake of preserving the BattleTech timeline.
Our general stance on player run merc units is simple - create your own legacy! It's very unfair for players to stake ownership over a canon unit, and creates a host of politic and pr issues. So we're avoiding the complexities and edge cases associate with players assuming the role of these units by encouraging you to forge your own destiny.
This is our launch POV. As always, we listen to your feedback and ways to improve the system.
