Change Log

Greetings MechWarriors!

It’s an exciting day! Today we’re releasing pre-ordered content to all players who purchased Project Phoenix. You’re among the first to pilot these mean machines! Project Phoenix is still on sale for a limited time with an end-date to be announced soon. Moving forward, Project Phoenix packages will be delivered during the regular maintenance period following your order (typically Tuesdays and Fridays around 10am PDT). We’re already drooling over Sabre Reinforcements...

Phoenix Loyalty Rewards hit the third and final phase, which means you're getting extra goodies as a small token of our gratitude. Please note the "Flame" pattern has been renamed Hotrod. Project Phoenix Faction Medallions can be claimed by visiting your profile on the website and selecting your preferred medallions.

More about today’s patch:

Halloween items have arrived! Deck out your cockpit with some spooky business. I'm excited to pilot my BattleMaster with our raging Hotrod skin and a smiling pumpkin to keep me company.

We've been reading your feedback and have tweaked the end-of-round screen. We hope you'll find that it’s easier to read the breakdown with this revision. Bug fixes include a slew of map stuck bugs and visual issues, so be sure to check out those in the verbose notes below.

Our special thanks to everyone who continues to submit feedback and bug reports. We've seen posts from many players giving us their suggestions from all over our forums, tickets and social media and we can’t reiterate enough how much we appreciate your contributions.

And of course, a huge thanks to our Talon, Storm, Guardian, and Overlord owners for your overwhelming support.

Tonight we’ll be raising a glass to you… and then we’ll be blasting-out your cockpit.

See you on the Battlefield!
