Greetings MechWarriors!

A Hot-Fix is scheduled to occur on Thursday, April 19th at 3:00PM PST (22:00 UTC), to address the following fixes:

Faction Play fixes:
- Unit Leaders can now cancel contracts properly on the Mercenary screen in Faction Play.
- Fixed a bug where double clicking on "Cancel Contract" caused an error message.
- Fixed the issue where Freelancers could answer a "Call to Arms" Faction Play match from the Solaris match making screen which would then cancel the Solaris match and move the player to Faction Play which then resulted with some missing UI.

Solaris fixes:
- Fixed an issue with the 21:9 Resolutions that caused the inability to close the Solaris overview overlay.
- Fixed a bug in the Solaris map 'Ishiyama Caves' where a bugged wall would teleport a 'Mech running into it.
- Fixed a bug where the Solaris match Group leader was able to select more than one server region.
- Fixed an issue in Solaris where the preferred server region automatically resets back to NA after every match.
- Fixed the issue where 'Mechs with Jump Jets can get stuck in Mech Factory B2 area around the crates.
- Fixed an issue where the Division drop down list goes blank after switching resolutions.
- Fixed an issue where some players would be stuck in match maker launch queue without a displayed launch countdown.
- Fixed a bug where the player can start moving forward before the camera intro sequence is complete at the start of a Solaris match.
- Fixed a bug where the exiting transition from a Player Card locks for a short time.
- Fixed a bug where the Solaris 7 title overlapped the header button when set to 21:9 resolution.

Other Fixes:
- Fixed a bug where Ballistic weapons on the Rifleman RFL-DB were overlapped by Energy weapons on the right arm of the 'Mech.
- Urbanmech UM-K9 Deputy Dog's police lights Bolt-On is now on the 'Mech by default and correctly displayed so. Other Bolt-Ons can also now be equipped on it's head without issues.
- Fixed a Quirk bug on the Fafnir FNR-5 where the Cooldown Quirk did not apply to Heavy or Light Gauss Rifle.
- Fixed an issue where the Urbanmech UM-K9 would cause the game to crash upon selecting it and attempting to initiate a match.
- Fixed a bug where a Bolt-On sometimes blocked UAV's from firing.
- The Supply Cache progression bar overlay will not appear after each Quick Play match unless it has been rewarded.
- Fixed a bug where Dropships were missing their blue flame effects during the flight sequence.
- Fixed the issue where Supply Caches items were not showing the full name or item category
- Fixed a bug where the Warhorn animations and it's sound not synced.
- Bolt-Ons tab in Camo Spec screen will now have the name of the 'Mech Chassis which the Bolt-Ons are available to equip on the variants of.
- Fixed an occasional dedicated server crash


Additional Notes:
- Bolt-On's rewarded through Supply Caches from Solaris may not be Bolt-Ons for the same 'Mech Chassis or Division which you have earned them from.


Thank you for your patience!

I am welcoming the patch. However I have to criticize PGI's quality assurance that gave a go to the new content with quite a few bugs in it, that an emergency hotfix was nessesary and now a minor patch right behind it. I am quite tolerant to bugs (I'll just say: Gothic 3 without the community patches ... ... ) but I'm sure PGI can do better than what we have seen the last couple of days.

This is cool, but can you at least tell us what mech they're for when we open them?

Also, could the awarded bolt-on be for a mech that we don't actually own?

So does this mean the bar at the top of the screen is gone or that the popup window is gone?

Also, still no fix for the load in times, enh?

But actually, a great hotfix.

I am especially glad the region will stop resetting to NA. I have an unplayable ping to that server and kept losing matches purely due to ridiculous lag.

I could not see any update to https://status.mwomercs.com/ during the patch? Although it clearly said "offline" or "maintenance" on the front page, the status page was all green the whole time.

The "now" is supposed to be "not", correct?

Do not see anything about the King Crab fix or needed to, but wow. Now when torso twisting. The sound is annoying as heck. Sounds like it is windy. Not using the KC for awhile. It is bothersome, I just can not use the battle mech anymore because of a annoying torso twisting sound.

Can you guys fix the bug where clicking on a playername in the Solaris leaderboard and then closing his profile page brings you back to the first page of "All" rather than the page you were just looking at?

It's really annoying if you're trying to look at a few people in your division.

You need to click CLEAR then Clan mech will appear. Right now your Deck is IS mechs so ONLY IS mechs will show.. I replied with the same information to your thread in another location. Anyone can test is. It would be the same for someone with a CLAN deck, in that only CLAN mechs and no IS will show up until you have clicked on the CLEAR because PGI does not allow MIXING of techs.

Again, click on the CLEAR button first to clear out the IS mechs. The button that is Highlighted in BLUE at the lower left. As long as you do not SAVE, you can hit the RESET button to bring those mechs previously selected back to that Deck.

In fact, with your current filter All - Clan /Both, hit Clear and tada Clan mechs then hit Reset and tada, they all disappear...... Posted Image And no contracted needed. Mercs are used to this, as well as those who swap Loyalist contracts like their undies.. many of them anyhow.... :)

1) How do I find a 2v2 partner? Nobody's in LFG.

2) When and how do you get sponsors? Minimum ELO required?
