ThomasMarik - Since we are able to freely modify our mechs anyway; How are Omnimechs going to work?

A: At this point we are not ready to discuss Clan Technology. We are getting very close to a final design, so look forward to a more official announcement in April/May.


Taken from the new ATD 31. This all but confirms that concept art and implementation will not begin until April or May. At the current rate of concept to implementation I would believe a fall invasion is more than likely.

Maybe Mid Summer at the earliest. They seem to be getting quicker at adding content now that things are more stable. But they probably won't be added until 12 v 12 is in.

Not what I am saying, if I had it my way we would be getting ready for our "Timberwolf", but it is what Bryan is saying.

Also, didnt know you still played or cared for MWO Skadi. Thought you all were playing PS2.

I think it would be really cool if it was off balance and say, you'd face 2 clan mechs vs 8 IS mechs. Like your typical boss fight.

In a previous discussion on the Clans, I speculated that we wouldn'r really be a part of it until Wave 4 or 5. It wasn't until Wave 4 that the IS really offered any stiff opposition.

I would really like to see introduction in the Wave 3 window. Whatever they decide I hope it is sooner rather than later.

Quoted from: http://www.sarna.net...eration_Revival

First Paragraph:
"The Clan Invasion (known to the Clans as Operation Revival) refers to the massive Clan invasion of the Inner Sphere... in August, 3049."
Therefore, if Sarna is any indication--and provided PGI is still sticking to the timeline--we should be looking toward August if not later for the invasion.

"3049" was last year. the invasion is underway, we just arnt aware of the clans actualy attacking ATM because no one has reported back of their arrivals since the first attack. Expect more in April (2012 = 3049, 2013 = 3050, just for future reference)

you do know in game time is 3050 right?
Wave 4
(July-October 3050)
fits that time and is a likely time to open to players

So then possibly we may see a Fourth wave push, and then they have no real Clan-IS boundries to play with until November next year. This is actually pretty smart of a play out. Though I am sad to think I will need to wait until August or more likely October.

So, maybe Community Ware fare lunch, until October will be test phases, and then come October, real outright Community Warfare is initialzed and the boundires are stuck for a year. Contract for Inner Sphere players, Fight 12 man drops vs Clan, or Inner Sphere. Same goes for Clans. No borders really change too much, just the continual battle for each planet. Gives them a year to tinker and get a handle of Community Ware fare and the bonuses for planets, resources, what ever. A good two years of IS mech development and Map development, and a year of Clan mech development.

Then BOOM Clans come back in November 2014(3051) for Wave Five and PGI Gives us the continuation of Clans Operation Revival/ Clan Invasion.

Clever girl.
