** Edit 23rd February 2018 **

I may as well change the title since most nights there's a little group if [IDI] running and we've picked up 7 players in the last 6 weeks, the Irishman's vocal talents is obviously the reason. Taco you're a living legend.... or leg end, I think Devlin might have said something that sounds like leg end but legend is nicer.

** Edit 11th January 2018**

For the moment we're not technically recruiting and will remain Davion Loyalist for a little while yet. However, if you are currently in an IS contract and are looking get into a group drop feel free to throw myself or Tacorodwarrior a Friends Request or PM. Perhaps we'll hit it off and you'll get an invite ;-)

Exert from MRBC Report 09/11/3062

Independent Defence Industries has reported heavy combat losses in the months leading up to the current situation between the rival Davion and Steiner factions. It appears that as of now they are placing themselves as "combat ineffective" and closing their doors for further contracts. It is the opinion of this board that if any former member of this unorthodox unit shows interest in further employment with another Mercenary or House affiliated unit that they would be a boon to that outfits combat power.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Independent Defence Industries [IDI] is a small group of experienced MWO players, many of whom have been around since Closed Beta and the inception of the game. IDI has been setup as a group of friends first and foremost; we are here to enjoy the game and each other’s company. The majority of the unit are based in the UK/EU with a few NA members that play in the off-peak hours.

We are mainly focussed on Faction Play; however private matches, Quick Play drops and general shenanigans have been known to happen on a drunken Friday night. We are a mature group with the bulk of our pilots in the 25-40 age bracket and while age is not a restriction for any who wish to join us, having a slightly thicker skin may be required; the jokes on TeamSpeak can get a little (18) rated Posted Image

Being mercenaries, we rotate our contract to wherever we feel the action will most likely be thick and fast. We have a mix of Inner Sphere and Clan orientated pilots and as such move from one side of the faction divide to the other on a semi regular basis, normally staying for no more than two weeks in any one faction. While we do not have a complicated recruitment process we are looking for pilots that are willing to group up and enjoy themselves in our company. We’re looking for pilots whose first instinct when logging into the game is to check to see who’s online from the unit, get on TeamSpeak and get involved with his or her unit mates: this is a team game and especially Faction Play rewards those willing play as part of the team.

While we do not have a dedicated training programme, we do have plenty of experience and will gladly offer advice on builds, tactics and overall strategies but sometimes the best way to learn is to do.

If this sounds like the type of unit for you, check out our website at www.IDI.enjin.com or you can contact me by PM here.

See you on the battlefield.

Freelance Nightly News Report


Bensinger
Federated Commonwealth
December 11th 3049

For months rumours of a marauding army from beyond the Periphery has been circulating in the back rooms and bars of many Inner Sphere outlying worlds. Stories from bedraggled refugees of huge armoured soldiers, unrecognised BattleMechs and almost completely outmatched defenders have been giving the locals restless nights.

With little word of confirmation or denial from official channels, that rumour mill has been running riot. Some have told that these invaders are an alien life form, intent on the destruction of the Inner Sphere. While others have asked if this is the vaunted SLDF returned to enact vengeance on the House Lords for their abandonment of the Star League so many years ago. Whatever the truth is, one thing is certain; a vast area of space covering the Greater Valkyrate, Oberon Confederation and Elysian Fields has gone quiet. More than twenty worlds, some of the most lawless and dangerous of known colonised planets have simply dropped off the grid.

No ship that has gone out has returned in almost three months and the planetary governments of border worlds have started to snap up Mercenary commands to bolster their defences. The House armies of the Federated Suns, Draconis Combine and Rasalhague Republic all seem to be gearing up to fight and tensions are at an all-time high.
What we all must be wondering by now is; when will the invasion come to us?

Tamer Peterson,
From Bensinger freelance press.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phase 4.1 is nearly upon us, do you have a team to face the coming onslaught with?


We are looking for active players in the EU time zone, that's if you mainly play between 7pm and around 11PM GMT. Although we don't have any strict rules on how often our pilots drop, we realise real life is more important at times, we DO want pilots that look to drop with their team mates when they CAN get online.

Somerset
Federated Commonwealth
December 12th 3049

The wind ruffled her blonde hair as she gazed up at the avatar of war with crystal blue eyes, the movie star good looks she had inherited by genetics somehow belied the heart of a warrior that pounded in her chest. The sight of the Griffin stirred her at a level she had never experienced in any other aspect of her life. Sure she had experience with the odd par amour but none of them came close to thrilling her to the same level as when she was at the controls of a BattleMech. Right now that attachment was cutting her to the bone and she fought the scratching at the back of those blue eyes. Oh baby what have I done to you? The laser scorched armour plating across the centre torso and the missile launch tubes mauled by explosive ballistic impacts on the right torso spoke of the heavy energy and autocannon fire. The missing right arm highlighted the enemy’s accuracy, even at range they had effectively disarmed her pride and joy; the errant strands of Myomer musculature and dripping coolant looked like the mangled remains of a humans own humerus.

A deep male voice from behind broke into the woman’s melancholy “Well Captain it looks as though you ran into much tougher resistance than you thought.” A heavy silence hung for a moment as she continued to study her machine, just before the silence turned awkward she nodded and turned to face the man. He wasn’t unattractive, the broad powerful shoulders and square jaw coupled with the thick brown hair gave him a rugged, wilderness loving look. The sharp, well-tailored AFFS uniform contrasted this and the Colonel insignia over the red background on his epaulettes told her he was a MechWarrior. “I’m not sure what to make of them Colonel but they called themselves Jade Falcons, certainly they were no ordinary pirate band” for a moment her eyes focussed distantly, remembering some painful memory “We lost seven of our Company and we barely even made a dent, probably one scrap and half a dozen lightly damaged”

“Well whoever they are it seems they have taken the full Coreward Periphery along the Fed Suns border. Many of the local Lords are having a conniption fit. They are screaming about invaders sitting on their borders and have even started snapping up Mercenary contracts. It looks like whoever these Clans are the whole of the AFFS is taking notice, notice of Merc units and line Regiments moving Coreward is coming through in the dispatches everyday”. Turning back toward the Griffin Captain Tamara Cole had a cold, hard look on her face “I received word that my sisters Unit was hit a few months ago, they had one casualty but managed to extract themselves back to Bensinger. The last I heard they were planning to go back out there and get some payback but I get the feeling that this is only the beginning.”

“If this ‘Clan’ is out there in force, very soon we will need every able bodied warrior on the frontline”


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[IDI] is looking for a few MechWarriors to join our ranks for some fun and frolics in Faction Play. Who will have your back when Phase 4.1 kicks off?

Check out this video "Mishtakes were made....." http://www.twitch.tv...12917?sr=a&t=43


I love my unit and the lads in it...... (in a gruff, manly way obviously)....and the shennanigans in between drops makes the difference between having a "group" to drop with and a "group of friends" to enjoy your time playing. We have a laugh, take the mickey out of each other but know we have each others backs in a fight.

It makes playing the game worthwhile.

Do you wish to learn the secret of the Gauss Panther?
Ever wondered why the Phoenix Hawk prances?
Wondering why Tacos aren't people?
Baffled by why the posh Englishman keeps waffling on about people's faces?
Curious about seeing a Viking diplomat in action?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then IDI holds the answers! Jump onto our Teamspeak and say hi. We absolutely super duper promise to be super serious and never ever shoot friendlies..

You may or may not see a shadow from the corner of your eyes if you decide to join IDI.
Don't worry, there's no one stalking you or mimicking IDI members there.

As Devlin said, Phoenix Hawk is just the best and I heard that they like every member of their unit to have it. 3 times. All variants. Sanity not required.

[IDI] Is looking for a few more active pilots to join us in Faction Play drops: if you're based in the EU or simply play in the normal EU time window, then look out for us in the new FRR/Kurira TS hub. We'll gladly get you into a group a get a few games. If you like what you find then check out our website at www.idi.enjin.com.

At the moment [IDI] is running as Kuritan loyalists and will be until the New Year but come January we will be returning to our normal rotation of two weeks Clan - two weeks IS to give our pilots a chance to play with their shny Clan toys.

Dear Coordinator is baffled by his top unit being made up of long term Davion Loyalists and Mercenaries whose idea of tactics involves shooting the enemies of the Dragon slightly less than each other.

Don't be daft Movin, Irishers count as a half, each Welshman past the first counts as a minus, a drunk Scotsman counts as 4 (but is barely a third when sober), a single Colonial is a force modifier, but the Vikings are twitchy at best. So between the 6 of you buggers we're lucky if we get a Lance.
