Re: Mech Warrior Online
Thanks. If you want, you can have an Aftershock Lance or Company, depending on how many join up.
This is how units are arranged in the Inner sphere:
4 Mechs = 1 Lance.
3 Lances = 1 Company.
3 Companies = 1 Battalion.
Currently with the upcoming changes the most we'll be able to field until they put in some truly 'epic' scale maps will be 1 Company in a game. One minor canon change - the Hussars refer to companies as banners. Typically the Hussars were light mech, medium, and light heavy pilots. I don't really care too much what you pilot so long as you enjoy it and are preferably good at it
Typical company organization in the Inner sphere:
Lance 1 - Recon/Scout/Harrassment lance
Lance 2 - Battle lance (heavies, assaults, brawlers, etc)
Lance 3 - Command lance. Typically this group is used as a mobile reserve and is used to plug the holes as well as issue commands. Each lance has a lance leader, but command lance leader is highest up the food chain. Others in command lance are effectively no better unless commander dies and someone else has to designate targets/orders. Call it a field promotion. :P
Also if you're interested, this is my 'mechpit'. It's basically a work in progress but you can see what I play MWO in:

What's the largest map size and what kind of game modes are they trying to introduce to the game?
|reply to Jobbie |
Arch - alpine is about 3x larger than the other 4 maps in rotation and my understanding is that is a 'medium' map. So the next map "desert" is supposed to be large, which should be 2-3x larger than alpine. That is to say, pretty damn big.
Jobbie - I enabled the application system on the 1st Hussars website. I'm still working on content, but feel free to apply guys.

That sounds fantastic.
I need to learn more about the MW lore--what little I know, I really like. It's very similar to The Black Company military/dark fantasy books set in the future.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
