When Community Warfare is ready, the Clans will only occupy a small number of planets. This is where players will have the ability to follow a recreation of the Clan Invasion by forcing their way down into FRR territory and harassing House Steiner and House Kurita along the way. However, if the Inner Sphere players are organized, they can even change the course of BattleTech history and try to stop the Clans in their tracks.


should/can i believe this .... :P

Thank you Paul. I realize that this must have been a tough decision to make, and it is a decision I can respect. Hopefully the left out clans will get to amuse themselves with trials and raiding amongst themselves.

Thought: let players take the part of ill equipped periphery bandits to be hunted by both clan players as all as inner sphere pilots. I, for one, would not mind running an alternate account with stock mechs and providing some amusement while you guys do community warfare right.

Hmm. I wonder if they'll run CW in seasons? That way the FRR doesn't completely get ruined within a month.

Change Battletech history? A bold move, and an interesting one. Brings some real weight to the upcoming CW, and anyway we should have seen it coming. They went and made the Jags a playable faction, and If we stick to the timeline, things don't go so well for them...

Now the big question is how much of the inner sphere will we get a real crack at?

Hopefully the follow through follows this. Good start. It's exciting.

It matters not, the clans will decimate the cowards of the Inner Sphere and take back what is rightfully ours. Soon we will claim our birthright!

Thought to keep the clan players interested:
Intra-clan competition to be part of the first wave of the invasion. Invasion happens as planned, but who the il-khan is and what clans could be determined by the players.

sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

I've been calling for this since I started playing: GREAT move.

Who wants to play after most of the action has happened? Then again, now I'll have to fight off the Wolf Clan as they barrel through. Hm...

I still want to start as a Periphery bandit...be the one-man tarpit on Santander's World or something.

Can we get a dagger star icon for non-big 4 Clan players to rep the Clans with? IS has Lone Wolf and Merc Corp tags - it'd be nice to not have to get pigeonholed into one of the 4 in order to play on the Clan side of CW when it hits.

Bleh another what year before we can rep Nova Cat? It's already been 2 years or so.... I was fine with waiting when CW and the invasion was suppose to hit 2 years ago since I figured sometime last year Nova Cat would be rolling out.

Just sucks that PGI is crawling along with MWOs production..

Interesting decision, obviously I can only hope that you all can pull off a meaningful and fun community warfare. Understand we aren't 100% believing right now so you guys need to make sure to do it well to win people back.

Nice move, PGI ... I would have preferred to start with something in an older part of the timeline first (maybe 3025), and then introduce the clans, and advance the timeline accordingly, but this is a significant part of the vision you promised two years ago ... hopefully you can achieve it this time!
