MCW: Turn 2 Update

Antonius Rex a posted Tue at 23:44

First off, we are going to be postponing the Turn 2 Initiative meeting a few days. There was some funky stuff going on server side in MWO this Tuesday, and a couple of games were forced to reschedule because of this. Also, with American Thanksgiving this Thursday and many people dealing with travel and family throughout the weekend, Monday sounds like a good plan.

Turn 2 Initiative Meeting:
Monday December 1st at 10 Pm Eastern, on the Mercstar ts.
Pirates should make sure to be there by 1030 for their attack orders.

The plan for the two games that will likely not take place before the initiative meeting is thus: Those remaining attacks will stack onto the following turn. The will go first in initiative order, and will count as additional attacks to their regular allotment for Turn 2. This has already been worked out with the majority of the units involved in this.

Lastly, please send in your best sportsmanship votes for Turn 1 of the campaign to

We need these in by the end of Monday's meeting. Please use something like the below format. I need to know your unit, who you are voting for, and the turn for my records. Units only get 1 pick for Best sport per turn, and it must be for a unit they played in that turn. You do not need to vote for anyone if you do not think any unit you played that turn deserves the vote.

Swords of Kentares votes for Team Hufflepuff for best sports for Turn 1.

MCW: Turn 1 Update

Antonius Rex a posted Nov 18, 14

Couple things to bring to your attention.

So, I'm sure most of you know that the new Swamp map is out (Veridian Bog)

It was always intended to add that map to both the Large map category and the Hot category.

What we are going to do for turn 1 is include it in the Hot Category, but allow units to choose if they want to play on it. If both units agree, play the Swamp map as drop #1 for Hot maps. If either team would prefer not to play on it, just stick with Canyon Network. We will "officially" add it to the rotation for Turn 2.

Map Rotation:
#1 Veridian Bog/Canyon Network
#2 Caustic Valley
#3 Terrible Therma
#4 Forest Colony
#5 Tourmaline

Lastly, We have isolated and corrected the bug for the planets Diedre's Den and Liao. The bug was in those planets having their planet type being "Normal" rather than "Regular". If you see any more instances of that, please let me know and I will correct it.

We are still fixing the bug where House Davion (Yellow) attack icons are not displaying, as well as getting the Arena planets working properly.

MCW Ref + Rules Update

Antonius Rex a posted Nov 13, 14

2 things to bring to your attention.

1. We have our list of Referees for Season 4 of MCW.

Head Judge: Queenblade
Kavi Vetali (NW)
Nanner Hammock (SiG)
Karpundir (QQ)
Demax (BSA)
Beatnik (CI)

More refs will be added as needed.

2. Minor Rules update: Added to the Gentleman's agreement regarding matching unit defenses up with tiers
If a Tier 1 unit chooses to defend against a unit 2 or more tiers below them, they will receive half points for any games won (10 points per win/2 = 5 pts per win)
Example: SwK (tier 1) chooses to defend against a T3 unit. They would receive half points for any games won.
This DOES NOT work the other way around. If a tier 1 unit attacks, and has a lower tiered unit set to defend the attack, they would not score half points for the round, as it was not their choice to get paired up that way.

MCW Update

Antonius Rex a posted Nov 11, 14

Couple of things,

1. A reminder for all factions to report in their selections for their world's restrictions.

Inner Sphere Units
- Choice of Capital World Planet Type and Planetary Restrictions
- Choice of 3 "non-border" worlds to be Fortress Worlds

Periphery States
- Choice of Capital World Planet Type and Planetary Restrictions
- Choice of Planetary Restrictions for front middle world

I need these selections in by Tuesday at midnight so that I can update the map.

Also, something to bring to your attention. We are going to add "No Pulse Lasers" as a weapon restriction. I was going to just randomly add it to the map, but instead, we are just going to replace No PPC's with No Pulse Lasers. We feel that this should be pretty good for the campaign, as PPC's are rather under used at this point, so the restriction is kind of wasted anyways. Also, from a map making point of view, this will be far easier :)

Lastly, just a reminder that we have the First Turn Initiative Meeting on Wednesday night at 10 Pm Eastern on the Mercstar TS server.

We are going to try a new meeting set up, where I go over the notes and stuff last. We will start right away with the Initiative and attack declarations. This will allow us to let the pirates show up at 1030, while we get the fist steps done without them.

So, 10 PM Eastern for IS and Periphery States, 1030 PM for Pirates.

See you all on Wednesday.
