UPDATE:

Greetings MechWarriors!

The Jester is here! Finally a Catapult Hero with a 30% C-Bill boost to add to your collection! The paint job won't scare anyone but that load-out will! Just look at the energy hard points on this 'Mech and double AMS all the way! Whoa!

A new Champion has arrived! The Blackjack BJ-1© affectionately known as 'Bam Bam". This 'Mech is joining the other Champions in the Trial 'Mech line up. Try this 'Mech out all week and buy it on Nov 12th with its 10% XP bonus.

Other cool things in this patch, seismic sensor gets some tweaks, UAV gets some rewards, some new screen shake events and some bugs get squished.

See you on the battlefield!
