You should be able to change your fighting faction temporary now, without it having any impact on your loyalist identity. At the end of that conflict, you should return to your loyalist affiliation. (Provided you didn't break contract to realign... depends upon how you make the change.)


OK, so thats a tricky clicky then. I will sty out of this phase then cause I am less than 20k LP away from the "Hero of Rasahague" and I will not be risking that one...

It shouldn't reset your LPs for your current faction (unless you fight against said faction), unless you are on the "extra" progression bar for loyalty ranks.

However, (I don't have the game up, so I don't have this confirmed), if you go to the FP tab, you should see it pop up with a selection of two contracts. If you see that from the conflict, you are fine. If you see all factions available, that's the wrong faction pledge selection for what you are looking for.

I tried searching but couldn't find a forum post about it. I have been away from MWO for quite some time... before solaris kicked off in fact. My question is what is the ACC reward that one can get from patrons and what is it used for?

It's some kind of reward system. With every match, you gather accoladepoints for the division they were gained in that fill a bar visible in your main solaris screen. When the bar is full, you are awarded a special solaris supply cache. These often contain bolt-ons.

You can activate that banked time in two different ways, either in 30 day chunks or all at once. I'm not sure how it works within the client/game, but I know if you go to your profile in this website you can activate your premium time in 30 day allotments.

What skills are trash or not depends upon what you want your mech to do, and what you enjoy doing. So take any opinions you hear and put them to a test. See if it holds true for you, as most of what people say are exactly that, opinion and not fact.

For example, I really enjoy and see a lot of benefit for taking the Jump Jet skills on mechs I intend to jump a lot with. My Black Lanner, Hellfire and many light mechs enjoy speed tweak, but that isn't true for all mechs. Often times you want those survival skills to keep yourself alive longer, but for light mechs you want more speed and can often ignore the survival tree.

So, determine what you want your mech to do better, and place skills in those sections. If those skills don't seem to benefit you as you would like, you can always unlock more and reassign your skills later. (As a note, it only costs you to purchase a skill node the first time. After that you can turn that node on and off without farther costs.)

Well I find I do best at mid to long range with direct fire weapons (lasers, lighter autocannons, etc.) so I guess that might mean that some sensor nodes would be beneficial to me...

Range ones may be helpful, but sensor skills typically are better for Enchanced Target Decay for LRMs/ATMs. The skills there you want are problem Radar Deprivation, to protect yourself from homing missiles at long ranges... and maybe the ECM ones if you've got ECM on your mech.

Beyond that, experiment with a mech and see which skills benefit that mech most. Eventually, you'll just know what skills need based upon their builds after time.

If there is a post or thread or sub forum that lists what mechs are suited to which roles, or what mechs fit my play style of preferring to sit at range and provide direct fire dps at range, could some one please point me in the right direction?

For mid to long range you are looking for mechs with high placed cockpit and weapon mounts. Stalkers, Ravens, some Thunderbolts, Blood Asp, etc. I don't know all the mechs that could work for what you are looking for, but just look for the tell tale signs.
