Noob question: How do I install/run the patch? I'm assuming I need to extract the files to a certain location.

You shouldn't have to do anything, the patcher will run the update for you. Piranha just gives people the ability to download patches and install them manually, for people who want to do that.

Yes, thank you!
I sold my regular NVA-S a long time ago when I needed C-Bills and a mechbay, so I still have 91 historic SP, and I just saw that they can be applied to the NVA-S(C) :-)

They were empty color categories in the camo spec section... They just removed the categories.

So what about Grim Plexus? Any Words on why it is still in the Faction Play Queue and there are still mass disconnects on it?

Hello.
I agree with the new Privacy Policies but no battlemech was added.
Should I wait for some time before I get the battlemech?

Thanks for your attention.

Note to PGI --- It just took me on the order of FOUR HOURS (thanks to about 15 Real Life interruptions) to read through the entire Terms Of Service and Privacy Policy. It would be appreciated if a Condensed, Smaller Version were available to read for those who simply lack the time and/or focus to read the Full Original Documents unimpeded. Right now, I feel like I've been driven half out of my mind, and that's totally not a good thing at all... I guess I'll just be thankful to have that New Free Mech in my Mech Garage. :mellow:



As for this...

How long ago did you Accept the New ToS and New P.P.? If the clock hasn't crossed an Hourly Line yet, then that would explain why you haven't received the Free Champion Mech. However, if it has already done that at least once, and you don't have your Mech, then you'll need to Contact MWO Support, just as noted in the News Posting. Right now, as I type this, it's crossing an Hourly Line for me, so I need to go 'play a match'/'use testing grounds'/'use academy'/'relogin' in order to get mine. Pardon me while I do so... :huh:
