I see the title screen says Mechwarrior Online Solaris 7. Is this like the season? I've heard there is a game mode that you can 1v1 or 2v2 someone. Do you unlock that after like 15 quick play matches like faction?

Would be really cool if there was more information about where it is.

Solaris was a failed game mode introduced in 2018 and removed when the Event Queue was established in 2022. You will see 1v1 or 2v2 matches on the S7 arenas as possible matches during Event Queue now.

I think Solaris would have been **** galore if only they didn't decide to scale 20 ton mechs to your average bar refrigerator height.

hmm SOLARIS FAILED, because many pilots like me could not bring in the mechs we had built already, only 1 i found i could bring in was a stormcrom, and it was banned from scouting missions, and then after 2 wins i could not play him again weird.

SAWK CLANNER --- bring back scouting : )

It sounds like you didn't understand how the division system works (truth be told, the UI was absolutely AWFUL at showing you what division a mech might be in so I'm not saying it's entirely your fault). All pre 2021 mechs were able to be used in the mode

To say the stormcrow was banned from scouting is disingenuous... for a very long time there was a 50t limit on the clan side for scouting matches, so yes any 55t clan mech INCLUDING the stormcrow was never going to be an eligible mech. This limit was lifted to 55t at a later point, but seeing scouting is a dead mode the point is moot

Solaris 7 was fun only for a small number of players. The rest of the player base refused to play it.

The Solaris maps are still playable in private matches, and it's even possible to see which mechs could be matched against which, as the Solaris divisions are still displayed in the store.

So unlike Scouting, you can still kinda get the same experience if you have a friend to do private lobbies with, but the actual gamemode with matchmaking is long gone. (...Think we lost the Duncan Fisher lines too, but I'm not sure because my friends who liked Solaris left the game, so I haven't actually played the lobby version.)

We did lose them, unfortunately.

Without the stats tracking and rewards, it is a kinda pointless.

The Solaris 7 game mode was supposed to be the competetive game mode, remember? Posted Image

As PGI admitted some time ago, the small group of players farmed those rewards season after season, year after year.

Not many other players were interested in Solaris 7.

In theory, PGI could offer something like scouting (or maybe even something like Solaris 7) in the Event queue.

Honestly, just the giant pile of global XP was worthwhile.

Solaris was the 2nd biggest failure of PGI right behind behind Faction Play

The 55 tonners were removed for a reason, it could boat Streaks and at the time, they destroyed everything.
