---Begin Transmission---

Fellow Clansmen and honored enemies, I bring you all greetings. I am Galaxy Commander Jep Jorgensson, founder and leader of the 12th Bear Guards and I have come before you now to introduce ourselves to everyone.

We are a unit of loyal Clanners that enjoys Role-Playing and are completely dedicated to the revival of Clan Ghost Bear. We give priority to Faction Warfare (FW) whenever possible in order to defend and expand the borders of the Clans. Our stated mission is to strengthen the unit so we can conquer the Inner Sphere!

Honor, loyalty, courage.


Q. What are the experience requirements to join?

A. None. We all started out greener than a Jade Falcon and have no problems training new cadets.


Q. But what if I do not own any Clan mechs and so cannot finght in CW?

A. Not a problem. We have other roles you can fill to help the unit. Besides, you can still bring whatever kind of mech to pub battles.


Q. But I do not know anything about Clan lore. Is that alright?

A. Aff. You can learn. We have a list of the more common Clan terms and are willing to teach.


Q. What kind of perks would I get if I joined? Do you give out free mechs to new recruits?

A. Neg! We are not that crazy! As for the perks, you would have:

Access to our website and forum;

Access to ALL of the original Battletech novels, about the first half of the ones from the Dark Ages, and animated series for free;

And a friendly and helpful environment with a real Clan feeling to it.


Q. You said something about having a Clan feeling to it. What did you mean by that?

A. We speak Clan, we use Clan ranks, we hold Trials of Position to promote our warriors, weekly Clawing Rituals, and Trials of Bloodright to earn our Bloodnames. We are loyal Clansmen to the end.


Q. Where are you based?

A. Most of our members are in North America but we also have members in Europe and around the Pacific as well. So obviously English is our primary language.


Q. What if for whatever reason I do not fit in. What then?

A. If you do not wish to stay then you can say your goodbyes and leave (just please do not leave without saying anything, that would be rude). We do not want you to stay if it is going to make you unhappy. That would defeat the very purpose of any game.


Q. How do I join?

A. Very simple.

1. You need to apply on our websiteat: http://12bg.enjin.com/home by filling out an application (remember to use your in-game name!).

2. You can leave a post here asking to join and someone will get back to you. This also helps since it shows that you are diligent and serious.

3. You need to then drop into our teamspeak channel at: STRANAMECHTY.INFO (PW: StranaMechty) and ask someone in our channel about joining us for some drops so we can get to know each other.

4. You may be asked to pay at least part of recruitment cost after joining (less than 2 million C-Bills right now).


Our unit tag is 12BG.


This is who we are. If you wish to join us, then so be it. We and the Clan will be all the stronger with another competent Mechwarrior at our side. If not, then we wish you well in your search and may Kerensky smile upon you.

---Transmission End---

I've been looking into CW for awhile.. Interested in learning more about the lore and getting into it. You guys seem like a really cool rookie friendly Unit. Thanks for the FAQ's too, they answer a lot actually. I was just wondering a few more things if I could ask...

1.) I have a pretty demanding job and a lot going on right now, so if I were only able to get on to play 1 or 2 nights a week or some weeks not at all would that be a problem?

2.) I have a couple friends who may not want to get into CW, so would I be able to now and then group up with them and just play regular matches?

3.) I am also sortof unclear on the temporary and permanent membership status's and how they work.

I guess overall my main question is requirement of time on my part and consequences if I am not able to play in CW all of the time. I know next to nothing about CW right now..

Other than that I played a lot of MW4 and the Black Knight updates but not much outside of it. I've been playing MWO as well of course for probably a couple years on and off. As a pilot i'm probably at my best in a Shadow Cat. Though I do have a few other larger mechs, LRM boats etc. Thanks for your time guys!

i also got a few questions here :

1: Is regular activity a must have for you guys? right now i got quite a few RL things going on and i don't know how much time i can put into MWO CW.
2: how commited are you to CW? now i know that CW is more of an Comp. setting, but do you guys mind if someone goes "nah for today" on it?
3: are there enough EU guys to form a team? if not i might only have time on Weekends.
4: Finally and for me more or less most important, overall just how talkative do i need to be for you? i am not shy, rather introverted so i might not talk much/ at all unless it's important.

now that this is out of the way here are a few things about me :

I am a solo player that has decent understanding of the game and i know some teamwork from playing other games that require it (mostly Moba type games here).
As of now i prefer medium mechs, but i am willing to test out all the positions till we find out what works and what does not. With that in mind i am not a long shot when it comes down to light mechs... i pretty much hate them with passion... but even then i am giving different builds a chance on this one.
I do not know Clan lore and that fuzz, but then again i would have stuck with World of Warcraft more if it still had actual roleplaying going on.

Finally as i mentioned above, i don't talk much for various reasons, but if you bear with me ( no pun intended) and let me get to know you, i usually open up a whole lot. it just takes time.

anyways. i hope you can answer these questions. and have a nice... well whatever time it is when you read this ;)

Hello,
I'm going to answer these, and if some of the vets of the unit want to add something they will.

1: nope not a problem ..... obviously we would all love to spend 5-20 hours, every day, playing games we love. the reality is 'life happens' ...... that being said, the ore active you are, the better for everyone, but 2 nights a week is not a bad start.

2: if you want to do PUB drops with your friends i don't think any one will complain, as long as you show for unit specific events

3: i don't understand the question, can you clarify further?

hope this helps ..... look for some of us in game and say hello :D

hope i answer your questions, and if the vets of the unit want to add something i am sure they will.

1:the more you are on, the better. we understand real life happens, and we understand that moods happen ..... no one can play all day every day ..... but being active is preferred

2: some folks are committed, some are not, as long as everyone is willing to do at least some CW, and specifically events, it's not much of an issue

3: we have a good 40%-50% (+ / -) of our members in the EU and Eastern EU

4: just like any good tavern, some folks talk, others do not, and most float in the middle depending on the situation ..... so, no, you do not have to talk a lot .....

hope this helps
track some of us down in game and say hello

I would love to join up if you all are still taking recruits. I am EST time, but unfortunately have limited time to play (mostly evenings after 10). I am still fairly green, I have been on for about 5-6 months, but this is my first "PC/Keyboard" game, so getting used to the controls took me a bit longer to grasp in game. I feel I have been getting it done and it's time to join up! I just grabbed up my 4th clan mech and now have a full lance to configure and build up. Currently, I do not use a mic, but I am always listening.

Cheers, and let me know where to sign!

I'm pretty sure you guys giving out "free access" to all the Battletech novels and cartoons is literally theft since I doubt any of you are the copyright holders or authors.

I am very interested in joining up with the Bear Guards. Just started MWO but am an old school mechwarrior player, was always in Ghost Bear, and you seem like a cool group of folks. Please hit me up in game, or PM me with instructions on how to go about joining.

Thanks, and I look forward to fighting with you!

Greetings, Galaxy Commander Jep!
I wish to inform myself about your unit! I only recently got back into the cockpit of my mechs, since i was taking a break for the game to settle itself in a nice, balanced state, which, in my opinion, it currently is. And i'm having loads of fun. However, i am missing something from this whole experience. Since this is very much a mech simulation, I started getting into clan lore, since those are the only mechs that interest me, plus the whole clanner personality is just so fitting!
A bit of personal information. I am from Germany, however i am speaking english quite fluently. I am into MechWarrior since i was a little kid, starting out at MechWarrior 2, together with my dad. And i have been playing MWO for quite some time now, with the occasional pauses, the last one being a bit longer. I may not be the best, but i sure am trying! You can usually find me heavy or assault mechs, however i do not shy away from piloting smaller mechs. I like to be faster and agile, but still pack a punch! Which is why the timber wolf is, was and will always be my mech to go!
So, here i am, still very much green with the whole terminology of the lore and a very rusty clanner vocabulary, looking for some fellow minded brethren (and sisters, of course) to trash IS scum!
If you are still recruiting, i would be very interested in joining you!
Thank you very much, Galaxy Commander, AkumaSlayR out!

Hello! I'm very interested in learning more information on the Bear Guards and potentially joining. I've been in the battletech universe since the offshoot tabletop strategy game and started playing Mechwarrior at the second installment. I've had an account with MWO since it first released into open beta, but haven't started seriously playing until the steam release. I'm generally on in the evenings and in the morning, but my availability will become more limited when I get back to school here in a few weeks.

I look forward to talking with you guys about joining up.

I had the pleasure to work with some of your warriors yesterday in a pubic battle. It was good to see so many Ghost Bears on the field! I shall look for you in other matches. Honor to Jorgensson and Tseng!
