Greetings MechWarriors,

O Fortuna! Every battle is a chance to win or face demise.

Lady Luck is watching over us and we are warming the dice today with a new Firestarter Champion: Scorching through the battlefield with five medium lasers, shredding past enemy fire with twin-AMS, jump-jet and a swift 295 XL engine. Upping the ante at over 100 kph and named for the largest trebuchet of medieval Earth; The Loup de Guerre will do more than level a stone wall: It will leap over them with its Jump-Jets and stack the cards against defenders with its SSRMs, SRMs, Medium Pulse Lasers, BAP and AMS. Destiny is truly with Trebuchet owners, who will also get to enjoy our first art revision of icons and visual weapon customization on these Mechs.

The original 'War Wolf' may have surprised enemies into surrender, but such good fortune might not happen again today. With fate in mind, we also have five new hanging charms to decorate your cockpit. Unverified claims suggest they originate from mystical wildlife of five worlds far off in the periphery and provide magical benefits to their wearers. While no pixels were harmed in the creation of these accessories, such baubles may still seem exotic to those who take more inspiration from their roots. Many MechWarriors trace their lineage back to that place called Earth, and we have something for those who really feel proud of the place they call home: Thirty-five standing flags representing some of the top homes of our fans, with more to come down the line.

Serendipity moves us from International to Interface. The UI 2.X system has had several auspicious tweaks. Aside from a series of bug fixes, we have the addition of notes on Owned Mechs and the removal of the Shopping Cart Window until changes are made in the Mechlab. We're also taking some of the chance out of matchmaking wait-times with the introduction of a visual Launch indicator for the best weight class to pick.

Whether you are a new recruit or simply looking to fill in your collection, we are fortunate to offer sale bundles highlighting each weight class with the Firestarter, Centurion, Cataphract and Stalker: 3 variants each, including a champion AND hero, their 'Mech Bays, 30 days of Premium Time, and more each for 50% off the normal price.
In the weeks to come, we hope to further your luck with ongoing work in improving matchmaking, gameplay, performance, information on Clans and more. In the meantime, please see the notes below for more details on these packages and other changes.

May the stars smile on you,

Nikolai Lubkiewicz
