Upcoming Patch - Friday, November 28th
Patch Number:  1.3.352

Greetings MechWarriors!

We are only 2 weeks away from the last patch of 2014 and the team is crushing it like a King Crab claw!

Today’s patch features cool new content and a couple tweaks to hold you over while we get the next patch ready for you!

Clan Invasion Wave II Loki and Man-O-War Collection purchasers and Hellbringer a la carte owners will receive their 3 Hellbringer chassis in this patch. 

This Heavy chassis is sure to intimidate and eviscerate your enemies. If you want one you can still buy a package this morning, and with the hourly injections it should be in your ‘Mech Bay ready to enjoy by the time you get home.

A new Champion is joining the ranks of the Inner Sphere ‘Mechs! The Raven RVN-3L(C) has a custom loadout that takes advantage of the ‘Mech’s quirks, along with the standard 30% XP boost to accelerate leveling the mech.

We’ve also rolled out a couple tweaks to Viridian Bog and a radius change for BAP, so continue reading for all the details.
See you on the Battlefield,

- The MechWarrior Team
