This is a new collection of guides and tutorials that the community created.

Updated for Steam release!
I added a short explanation for every guide to make finding content easier.

Welcome to MWO! The first step is always the hardest and that's why the community prepared some help for you.

New players will find a collection of help threads here that will answer the most important questions.

Have fun and enjoy your stay. Don't give up in becoming a fierce mechwarrior.



Three parts:


1) Getting started (Guides for new players)


2) Basic knowledge (General guides)


3) Advanced knowledge (Strategic guides)






Tutorial collections:

Kanajashis cadet video tutorials

Spike Braves video tutorials: MWO User Interface Tutorials
Categories, just start the first video to see the playlist with more content!

Maybe you remember the thread, created by "miSs" with the same name. It was a collection of interesting community created guides and help threads. I want to renew this idea and make these help threads viewable for more persons than before. This happens with knowledge and encouragement of miSs, wo helped me with collecting the links again. The old thread was hard-deleted and the work begins again.

This thread also needs your help.

Are the guides fit in the right section?
Do they need a explanation and are you willing to write a short describtion for this thread?

This is why I opened the thread for everyone now. Help me to help the community by supporting the work of these users.

As for this thread we have the following rules: for the reasons of clarity, all posts will be deleted if I have put your suggestion into the previous posts.

Please also suggest new guides (maybe with a short describtion). I will put them into the previous posts and delete your advertising post later.



Thanks for your help, making this forum a better place.
And thanks to miSs, this is your legacy. This thread wouldn't exist without you.

Added two more guides. Please post missing help threads here. Such a collection is very helpful when used.

@Sarlic: It won't become a pin unless there is more attention for this thread.
