Greetings MechWarriors! This weekend we're having a Faction Challenge! This is your chance to take your skills to the Battlefield with House Pride! All participants who play 10 matches will receive a free Gazelle Dropship cockpit item automatically! Step 1: Sign-in and choose your House Faction before opting-in by Friday March 21st at 10:00 am PDT on our website at https://mwomercs.com/profile/faction. Step 2: Opt-in on our website before Friday March 21st at 10:00am PDT at http://mwomercs.com/tournaments. Step 3: The contest period lasts from Friday March 21st 10:00am PDT until Sunday Mar 23rd 11:59pm PDT. Compete against your fellow MechWarriors for a chance to win glory for your Faction and MC prize packages! The top five player scores in each House Faction will be awarded an MC prize package. All players who have opted-in and are members of the winning Faction (calculated by the combined score of the top 50 players in each Faction) will receive their House Banner or dog tags as a cockpit item! Important: Remember to choose your Faction early! If you change your Faction House after the beginning of the tournament, your scoring and rewards will continue to be reflected in the Faction you had selected when the contest began. Scoring will only be considered for matches where you drop alone (not in a team).

This is a bit biased...there are no clan faction tags in game...so does that mean lone wolf counts as a faction? I refuse to wear IS tags, even for a contest for a cockpit item...

EDIT: Which raises another valid point, I still have 4 faction tags available from the Overlord Package...will I be able to use those to choose a Clan Wolf faction medallion?

Looks like "Lone Wolf" is a faction, yes.

I want the Taurian Concordat :(. Not only that, as some have stated above, we want more factions sooner rather than later. Some of us just don't like the "big boys". :P

PGI does a test on faction reward system in preparation for CW, and people complain.

First world forum problems.

Could be fun. It's not really a good way to organize tournament play, so I am just going to say it's a good diversion.

p.s. Where is HOUSE STEINER REPRESENTING when you need him?

I'll opt-in, but I don't know what to really make of it because I know I won't win.

Ultimately, meh?

Jeez people, just pick a Faction, win some MC. Switch back to your preferred "clan", "merc", "lonewolf" later...

Crying over how to win free things...

Not trying to ***** but how come we can't drop in teams of our faction?! That kinda takes all the fun out of it. I mean how are we supposed to wage war with out co-op communication? the typing in game system don"t cut it!
Just think: if we could drop in teams of our faction and face teames of opposing factions, why then you would have that house warfare that you promised us oh so long ago!

Just sayin' yo.
