how about Trial Mech Mondays instead? No barriers to entry, nobody has to invest in a mech and/or mech build they don't want.

Maybe Stock and Trials together, if the trials aren't too OP compared to the stock, and there are sufficient stock mechs with endo, DHS, etc that trial champs aren't really much better than an expensive stock.

Fortunately, the trials are all Champions nowadays - which is good for new players in the MWO Main...but trials would far outperform stock Mechs in the stock scene.

But going stock is cheap! Buy the Mech. Done. No upgrades needed. Or you might consider dusting off an old Mech you don't really play and set him up as your stock play go-to. Restoring an old variant is relatively cheap: moving from DHS to SHS isn't 1.5 million C-Bills...it's actually around 750,000!

Personally, I'm now maintaining:

retrofit Commando 1B one LL, one ML, one SRM2, 106.9kph
new Spider 5V two ML 142kph
new Hunchback 4H one AC/10, four ML, one SL, 71.3kph
retrofit Griffin 1N one PPC, one LRM10, 89.1kph
retrofit Wolverine 6R one AC/5, one ML, one SRM6, 89.1kph
retrofit Thunderbolt 5S one LL, three ML, one SRM2, two MG, one LRM15, 71.3kph
retrofit Battlemaster 1G one PPC, six ML, one SRM6, two MG, 71.3kph

for stock matches!

MechForce: Classic isn't a league with rules...it's just a hub for people who want to play at stock values to meet up, organize, discuss, etc. So, if you set up a thing with friends and wanted to include Trials, good on ya!

I really really really like the stock mech league idea. I know I will be joining, but I do have one suggestion: armor values were doubled while ammo values were generally increased by 50%. While this doesn't affect ballistics so much, since we can pick our shots better, LRMs will be rather negatively affected due to spread. If I were recommend anything, I would say allow mechs to bring one extra ton of ammo to compensate for the armor doubling.

I'll still be coming, regardless, since my ON1-K has enough ammo stock :-D

That's up to you! Could be a fun night of "Okay, everyone is authorized Ferro...use that tonnage wisely!"

On the MF:C site, we have a "Master List" of Mechs if you wanted to see what you might want to pilot. In the stock scene, you don't pick Mech...Mech picks YOU!

Again, this isn't a league with rules...just a place for you to organize with others seeking the challenge of running stock values!

As far as Stock Mech Monday, we'll be using the following:
- DO use Mechs "as is" when you purchase them or retrofit them to their stock loadouts.
- DO NOT use Mechs with Double Heat Sinks in their stock form. IE you can use all of Tech 1 and most of Tech 2 from that list)
- DO NOT use modules or consumables! Exception: The Atlas D-DC may use Modules and Consumables.
- DO unlock efficiencies
- Free Private Lobbies DO follow the 3/3/3/3 class matching. Maintaining a Mech of each weight class is advisable!

Sorry...that would be EST. I'll get the OP edited.

If that doesn't work for you, please convince your friends to pick up a stock Mech and set-up your own weekly thing! MechForce: Classic is just a place to organize and discuss those interested in stock stuff!

Is there a chance for 8 on 8 or 4 on 4 even?

We at the Atlas Hunters would love to get in on something like this !

Yes, that is possible! If the group leader of each team is running premium then they will be able to launch without a full 12! Please, toss this out to the rest of the Atlas Hunters and join us! xD


First Stock Mech Mondays is only 9 days away!

We're trying to give people a week of notice to grind out some c-bills to buy a Mech or retrofit an old one! Look at the Master Mech List to get an idea of what stock Mechs have for weaponry and pick one up!

It would also be very useful if anyone interested joined the MechForce: Classic site and then went to the page for the event and set to "Attending"! It would help us know about attendance, etc.

Hell yea! What Mechs are you thinking of running? PS, stop by the MechForce: Classic site and sign up for the first SMM (it'll be helpful to know attendance and all that)!

I like the classic medium 'Mechs a lot - I've got a couple that I can make stock without too much investment in cbills like my founders hunchback/phoenix griffin. Also reverted my 3S banshee to stock configuration to pay homage to my favorite ride in MPBT.
