BOMBADIL'S BIRTHDAY BASH & THE RETURN OF THE MASTER'S CHALLENGE!



Greetings MechWarriors!

So exactly 50 years ago tomorrow, something happened. But even more exciting, 12 years later I discovered BattleTech, and the rest is history! For almost 10 years now I've been working with, and then for, Piranha Games AND hanging out with all of you incredible people! Life is good!

So to celebrate half a century of being alive, I have a fun day of festivities planned, the schedule of which is posted below. Hope you enjoy it, and I'll see you on the battlefield my friends!

        I like the bonus armor... I'm actually liking how you guys are tweaking things with these events, perhaps they will find some things that are a more fun way to balance.

        Happy birthday!

        A bit sad to see more and more restrictions placed on the master's challenge prize every time it's posted, would've been really nice to have the ability to get some of the mechs people missed out on over the years.
        IMO it should either be only standard variants and heroes or everything except Gold, Founders and Phoenix (Limited edition purchases.)

        Thanks for hosting the event, and thanks to Bows3r for trashing everyone! I didn’t get my turn at bat to become a smoldering wreck, but I hear there will be some next times coming up… so I’ll have to drop in then too!
