Battle for Tharkad
Start Date: Wednesday, Nov 22nd - 00:00 UTC
End Date: Sunday, Nov 26th - 11:00 PM UTC

Tharkad Is under siege! Clan Jade Falcon and Steel Viper have carved a path into the heart of House Steiner and now look to claim the Capital of the Lyran Commonwealth. Seeking to not be the first of the great houses to fall to the clan onslaught, Archon Katrina Steiner has called on allies from across the Inner Sphere to defend Tharkad and push back the invaders.


Participate in the Battle for Tharkad!
Ties are extremely unlikely!
Ends During Peek Population Hours on Sunday!
Choose a Side and Win a Mech! (not Victory Dependant!)

And for the Loyalists...

I almost wish I was Jade Falcon so that I could go stomp on Tharkad for awhile

Make it so Mercs can not take Clan contracts and give the Mercs free faction-changes to compensate.

Clans might just lose this one because of how badly they've been getting stomped lately.

PGI, please be clear about win/loss conditions on this one... ...and "tie" conditions for that matter.

It should be illegal for clanners to kill Steiner, only the Draconis Combine can kill those no skill cheesers.
The Draconis Combine wont tolerate this nonsense!

Can someone please tell PGI that Katrina Steiner died in 3040 and therefore cannot call on anyone to defend Tharkad. Unless they are able to raise the dead...

True, but the writeup specifically says, " Archon Katrina Steiner has called on allies from across the Inner Sphere to defend Tharkad and push back the invaders."

Yep, just like the Inner Sphere lost Tukyyid and therefore Earth three for three. I predict the clans will win and not be allowed to actually have the world. Then the map will reset and we'll all pretend it didn't happen.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

MY GODS HOW DID I FORGET THAT! I am really ashamed of myself right now.
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

In 3057, Prince Victor was still Archon of the Federated Commonwealth, though in 3057 she did take power, BUT it was the Lyran Alliance. The Lyran Commonwealth technically no longer existed.

So really he was First Prince of the Federated Suns part of the Commonwealth, but still Federated Commonwealth.

It is already lost. There is no chance people let PGI pull this "tie" nonsense second time, as well as there is no chance of win bar dropping below 98% clan. I'll take free money for autoloss though.

IS reward should be a Steiner scout - The Atlas
Clan rewards...an hell, PGI is going to fix it so the Clans don't win. Just like for the last IS vs Clan planetary battle.
4 million cbills for everyone at the end, I'm calling it now.

I hope faction cockpit items or camo patters for a chassis are available prizes for this event!

Please for the love of God, don't input a system that allows for last minute dunk-a-trons to tip the scales in the final hours...

Please implement a system that calculates total wins per Faction and use THAT to decide who wins.

Please don't create challenges based on mechs and systems your enemy brings-only the individual player's personal performance should be taken into account.

Please don't end the challenge during phases and times when no one is playing.

Please learn from the mistakes made in previous competitions.

I'm really losing faith here...
