Greetings MechWarriors!

This Patch has been a long time in the making. Some of the features included in this update, specifically the Event Mode Queue and the Skill Tree Improvements, have been in the works for almost 2 years! There's a lot included in this patch, so take your time reviewing the Patch Notes, and have a great time exploring these new features...and if you enjoy them, tell a friend or two or ten!

Included in this patch are the NEW Event Mode Queue, Skill Tree Improvements, Quirk Display and Information Update, new Platinum Collection 'Mechs, Quirk Pass 10, Weapon, Equipment and 'Mech adjustments, and a lot more. Check it all out below!

Coming in June: The Crusader 'Mech, a New Quick Play Map, and more!

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 really hope you enjoy the patch!

-The MechWarrior Online Team

EVENT QUEUE MODE
The launch of the Event Mode Queue is here! This gives us the ability to mix and match our Game Modes, Maps, 'Mechs, and Special Modifiers to provide variety and create new gameplay experiences that will change regularly.






SKILL TREE IMPROVEMENTS
We've updated the Skill Tree to hopefully make it more fun to skill your 'Mechs, make it easier to understand, significantly reduce the number of clicks and time it takes you to skill a 'Mech, and removing the need to take skills you don't need or want.








QUIRK DISPLAY AND INFORMATION UPDATE
We've updated the 'Mech Quirk Display and Information so that the Quirks are color-coded and categorized by the Quirk Type, and to visually separate the Default 'Mech Quirks from the Skill Tree Quirks.






NEW PLATINUM COLLECTION 'MECHS
This month we release 2 new Platinum Collections featuring the Spider SDR-5D, Cicada CDA-3M, JagerMech JM6-DD, and King Crab KGC-000 for the Inner Sphere, and the Incubus INC-4, Vapor Eagle VGL-3, Hellfire HLF-A, and the Kodiak KDK-3 for the Clans. Each Platinum Collection comes with 4 Platinum 'Mechs, 4 Mech Bays, Platinum Pattern Unlocks, and the (P)latinum 'Mechs get a 30% C-bill Boost!

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_400.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
