I'm looking to put together a comp team. Been playin' MechWarrior since the 90's. Wife asked why I'm not competing since im playin' it so damn much. She's got a point.

I take chances and although I'm not a gambling man i'll jump jet my 45t Vindicator into a wave of enemies to get our team moving during FP (have the vid) to try and swing the match back our way. The term try hard does not exist in my reality it is very much a do or do not (queue yoda reference here). Let's just say that if MWO were baseball we would be The Sandlot meets Major League. I fully expect us to win every match because I know we wont.

If you're interested then send me a message or drop by my stream. If this doesnt work out then I guess im going to have to try and join a pre-existing team. Thanks for your time.

No rigging.

A lot of tin foil hats though.

Good to see you are still wearing yours.

I'm still looking forward to you sending me a link to prove my team was hacking in that game we played a few weeks ago. You were adamant about recording the match to prove we were cheating, and said you'd share the link with me when you uploaded it. Where is it? I wanna see the proof you recorded.

These are video games. **** happens. I've been around too long to know that hackusation never stick. Even with what you think was proof. I've ran servers where people were banned for hacking, even with "video evidence", but it wasnt difinitive. This post is to inform people I'm looking to start a team. It is not a medium for you two to air your greivences with each other. Take that **** somewhere else.

As for the luck, I'll take as much of it as I can get. I've decided to torture myself by skilling out my mechs in stock form in QP. It makes for a horribly bad stream but it hilarious when my KTO-18 gets killed from an ammo explosion. This will be known as the gauntlet, a true trial by fire.

Don't do that, the stock mech gimmick is a one off thing from PGI for the World Championship, and qualifiers are over. If you want to try your hand at competitive play, Battle for Midway is about to start. Find 5 other people, and go sign up here:

Signups ended yesterday for battle for midway, but ash might allow a late entry if it's done like right now.

Maybe, we placed 2nd in div b last mrbc season, so I guess it depends how many really good teams are signed up. We probably arent a match for EmP, but I think we could give a decent game to most teams there.

Guys, i think we are getting ahead of ourselves. Before I even look at an external league I need to get pilots first.

Speaking of late entries, I wonder if its possible if one could join an existing team after registration ended.

That's definitely possible, teams are allowed to modify their rosters.

That's crazy talk. How do you believe that Comp could be rigged?

He's bad and can't fathom the time/effort/skill it takes to win a championship.

OP a few things you can do

play FP and take a tour of the IS collect friends and if they are good send them an invite

I been playing FP since day one and every once in a while you see guys/gals as good as proton

another idea is to join a team that is already good (or fun)

or you can look at the leader board and send messages to the top 20 pilots
IMHO

We took a last min after closing entry today... More the merrier, starts in a week so can't take many more late comers TBH.

You can, yes. Team leaders are aware of rules. They are public too - read thread on it.
