Greetings MechWarriors!

Is it October already?! Time to break out the spooky 'Mech patterns and colors, cockpit items and warhorns! Speaking of spooky, don't forget to check out the 2021 Trick or Treat Loot Bag Event and the Scary Good Sales - lots of fun, prizes and great deals in the store! This month we have the new Hunter Booster Pack with the new Phoenix Hawk PXH-7S and the new Stalker STK-7D variants, as well as the next rebalanced map from Francois, Viridian Bog Reborn! Also included in this patch are more Weapon and Equipment Adjustments, 'Mech Agility and Loadout Adjustments, Bug Fixes, and 'Mech Quirk Passes including updates to previous Quirk adjustments, and the Third Quirk Pass!

Look for our sixth map coming in December, but this will be an all-new Quick Play map designed by Francios, based off of the Faction Play map biome Hellbore Springs. Can't wait!

As with everything, these updates are subject to further balance changes in the future, especially as more variables are brought into the equation with future updates and changes.

So get out there and do the science, and get us your feedback for future iterations!

And now, we hope you enjoy the patch.

-The MechWarrior Online Team


HUNTER BOOSTER PACK
The Hunter Pack is here! Check out the screenshots of the Phoenix Hawk PXH-7S and Stalker STK-7D below, and don't forget you still have over 30 days to purchase this pack and qualify for the Early Adopter Rewards! Almost forgot to mention, BOTH of these 'Mech chassis received Quirk Passes in this patch, so be sure to check those out in the Quirk section below!

PHOENIX HAWK PXH-7S






STALKER STK-7D





VIRIDIAN BOG REBORN

Viridian Bog is the latest map to be reworked by Francois with feedback from the Caldron! Check out these screens and let us know what you think of the map adjustments once you get a chance to play on it!










WEAPONS ADJUSTMENTS

As a continuation of our assessment of weapon performance since April, the following change has been made:

ATM3:

  • Decreased cooldown to 3s (from 5s)

ATM6:

  • Decreased cooldown to 4s (from 5s)

MRM10:

  • Decreased cooldown to 3.9s (from 4.3s)

MRM20:

  • Decreased cooldown to 4.1s (from 4.3s)


EQUIPMENT ADJUSTMENTS
In this patch a small adjustment has been done to MASC MK I, in order to bring it more in line with other sizes in terms of intended function. Also, this patch includes reverting ECM stats to pre-August values.

MASC:
In this patch MASC MK I is adjusted to have more “burn” duration in order to cover a longer distance in a single burst. This is done in exchange with reduced boosts to agility stats. It should be noted that mechs able to equip MASC Mk I will remain by far the most agile mechs when utilizing MASC.

MASC MK I:
  • MASC fill rate decreased to 0.064 (from 0.09)
  • MASC acceleration boost decreased to 1.8 (from 2.0)
  • MASC deceleration boost decreased to 1.7 (from 1.9)

ECM:
The goal of changes to the ECM was to shift more weight from the skill tree bonuses towards the base stats of the equipment to help reduce the reliance on skill nodes for an acceptable performance. However, changes made to the base stats of ECM didn’t seem to take effect while nerfs to the skill tree nodes did. In this patch, ECM and ECM nodes in the skill tree will return to their pre-August stats, until we’re able to do a proper investigation into ECM base stats tuning.

ECM:
  • Enemy radar range reduction reverted to 30%
Skill tree adjustments (Enhanced ECM nodes):
  • Enemy radar range reduction reverted to 22.5%


MECH AGILITY ADJUSTMENTS
In this patch the following mechs have gone through agility adjustments to their acceleration and deceleration stats

Griffin
  • Acceleration normalized to 47.71 across all variants
  • Deceleration normalized to 45.91 across all variants


MECH LOADOUT ADJUSTMENTS
This patch includes adjustments to maximum engine limits on a number of underperforming mechs, as an attempt to maintain balance between variants of the same chassis and/or same weight class and roles.

Thunderbolt
Max engine has been increased on following variants:

  • TDR-5SS: Increased max engine to 350 (from 315)


MECH QUIRKS
This patch includes the third quirk pass as well as small adjustment to quirks that were released in quirk pass 1 and 2. More chassis will undergo their own quirk pass in future patches.

Patch Files (Direct Download)

To make the patching process easier for players with limited download caps, we'll be providing direct download links for the patch file(s) that comprise this patch. This will allow you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, for manual injection into the MWO patcher through a Patch Cache folder.

Aside from allowing you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, on another connection, there are no additional benefits to performing the patch this way; the patching process itself will be the same.

This direct patch download process will only work for players running the standalone client. It does not apply to players running MWO through Steam.

Patch File(s): - http://patcher.mwomercs.com/patch/Production/frontend/FrontendPatch_393.zip

  • Download the above file(s)
  • For sake of ease, we recommend creating a dedicated folder for the patch file(s), such as 'MWO Patch Cache'
  • You do not need to unzip or unpack the patch file(s)
  • Launch the MWO Portal
  • Select the three horizontal lines in the top left of the Portal Window
  • Choose the 'Specify Patch File Cache' option
  • In the field that appears, paste or enter the location in which you saved the patch file(s) and hit OK
  • For example, C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MWO Patch Cache
  • Click the blue Patch button
  • The launcher will now check the Patch Cache folder you defined. If it locates the required patch files, it will unpack and use those files to apply the patch.
  • Once the patch is complete, launch the game
