You can modify it to be a supplement to the game.

2 Modes!

A. 1v1 (with a random roll on which category you compete) So our lovely players (including me) measure their mech e -peen on Duels that give nice Cbill boost and the usual Solaris visual accessories)

B. Free for All (Self Explanatory but with a twisted Hint: A valid operational mech roll-pick randomly from your inventory or a premade set of mechs you have for this gamemode) and MAYHEM!

NO LEADER BOARDS FOR THIS - Cause stats lead to toxicity and rank shaming.

And yet "Solaris 7" somehow still shown on the login screen and website, guess they should remove it everywhere since it doesn't make sense when it's not there anymore Posted Image

S7 will stay there more likely than not as a trademark place holder in case PGI or rather EG7 want to develop another game. However, yes, a lot of things about the money and development time sink S7 was, doesn't and never will make sense.

You are looking far too deeply into this. It costs less resources (read: zero) to keep the current "MechWarrior Online Solaris 7" branding rather than go through the rigmarole of designing a new brand and updating it everywhere for zero benefit

What we need here is some kind of custom game.
Like... I wanted to play a game with my kids. In MW4 we liked to open up a custom game and just start blasting away.
Neither MW5 nor MWO offer that. This way we (and I guess other people out there as well) are stuck with MW4 MekTek.
Sure, we could just open a group and join quick play. But playing AGAINST another? Not even S7 offered that option in a fashionable way.
How about giving us the option to play custom games? Enable some special rules like... say... only urbies but unlimited jump jets? Limitations on tonnage, heat vision only, multiple drops... you name it.
Forget any XP, C-Bills or rewards whatever and you're ready to go. No need for AI-enemies as well. Just a simple way to play against each other.
Shouldn't be difficult to implement but this would give the game more flexibility.

Sure, this is a competitive multiplayer game. But I see a custom/free game mode more in MWO than I do in MW5.

This is what the Private Lobby is for. You can setup everything you like there.
