Greetings MechWarriors

2014 and still no flying cars? Well at least the Clans are invading!

15 seconds left on the clock and your team is on the 10 yard line! Who do you send in? The Hunchback Hero ‘Mech “Grid Iron”! He won’t fumble and he won’t stop till he wins! Like most pro athletes, he gets a healthy salary boost of 30% C-Bills for each match! Get some bam and swoosh with your pew pew today! Also check out the Limited Edition version with an exclusive cheer leader cockpit item!

The Cicada champion is here! This is as close as you are going to get to a “Garth” Hero ‘Mech. Its available to pilot now in the Trial ‘Mechs and will be on sale Jan 14th. Don’t forget the 10% XP boost so you can power level this fast medium mech.

We have some weapon tuning in this patch as well as some bug fixes too. Read on to get the full details

See you on the battlefield.

P.S in the Dec patch notes I stated “*there are currently no C-Billionaire’s in the game” Well since then we had a player reach this milestone. I’m not going to reveal who it is but I will say this “you’ve changed man… The C-Bills have changed you! You used to be so down to earth.” Wink Congrats.

Bug Fixes

- Fix to a very rare deadlock during reloading the shaders.
- Changed capping the FPS from 30 to 60 in the front end. Reason for this cap is we took off forcing vsync on in the front end and we have to cap at some frame rate so certain users will not have 5000 FPS in the front end and overheat their GPUs. Users who also want to change the sys_MaxFPS can once again.


- Greater visual weapon customization for the Hunchback variants. Their appearance will better reflect the weapons that have been equipped on them.
- New MechLab icons for all Hunchback variants.

We thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!
