Feared. Tenacious. Victorious. Indomitable.
Steel Jaguar is a collection of competitive gamers who are as dedicated to victory and the play-to-win philosophy as they are to each other. Alongside holding themselves to a very high skill standard, +SJR+ members take pride in maintaining a level of respect for each other and for their opponents. +SJR+ is not just a gaming team, it has become a family of like-minded competitors - hence the tongue-in-cheek moniker by which initiates of the team are identified: "Jagbro".
Reborn from the ashes of its decade-old MechWarrior 4 incarnation, +SJR+ began a new reign in November 2011. From the first moment following MechWarrior Online's announcement, +SJR+ members made themselves active in the community by promoting competition and the need for a league scene in MechWarrior Online.
Originally known as Smoke Jaguar Reborn, the team made a decision in May, 2012: to abandon BattleTech roleplay in the unit's identity, and to embrace a unique identity. The team remodeled itself from the ground up, to mimic the structure of modern successful pro-gaming teams, and Steel Jaguar was born. This enabled the team to retain its decade-old "tags", +SJR+, but to forge forward without any copyright issues or conflicts of interest with other teams. This allowed +SJR+ pursue its main goal as a MechWarrior Online competitive team: to be the very best in the game.
+SJR+ was present at the very first official MechWarrior Online tournament on July 27 2012 at the NVidia MechMadness Tournament, where X.O. Eagle Furey competed as a member of the victorious Team 13. He took home a prize package of an NVidia 680, a Razer Naga mouse, a Razer Goliathus Mousepad, and a MWO Legendary Founders Pack.
As the MWO community grew, +SJR+ made the creation and promotion of a true competitive community its mission, and to further this end founded the premiere MechWarrior Online competitive league - Run Hot or Die.
In MWO Closed Beta, +SJR+ hosted and administrated the RHoD Closed Beta tournament, and took 3rd place behind finalists KaoS Legion and the victors, Eridani Light Pony.
In Run Hot or Die Season 1, +SJR+ finished undefeated in the regular season in both its North American and European divisions, and entered both NA and EU Playoffs as first seed. +SJR+ was the only team to have both its EU and NA divisions reach the Playoffs. +SJR+ NA is currently competing in the playoffs.
+SJR+ members have shown their colors in the PGI-hosted weekend solo tournaments:
