Faction Play Improvements

Faction Hero Rewards for Loyalist Players:

  • Loyalist players now have access to a new Faction Hero track that starts after Rank 20. This new track is a series of Loyalty Point milestones that unlock rewards as the player reaches them.
  • While Hero track is separated into each Faction LP path, the way they operate is identical with identical rewards.
  • Upon completing the track the first time, Loyalist players unlock a Faction Hero title and badge.
  • The Faction Hero track will loop indefinitely as LP continues to accumulate.
  • If the Loyalist player breaks loyalty with a faction, they lose the Faction Hero title and badge. In addition, the Hero Track LP earned is removed and Faction LP is set back to Rank 20.

Faction Play End of Round Rewards:

  • The default C-Bills payout for winning a non-Scouting Faction Play match has increased to 300,000 CB.
  • The default C-Bills payout for winning a Scouting Faction Play match has increased to 30,000 CB.
  • The default Loyalty Points payout for winning a non-Scouting Faction Play match has increased to 50 LP.
  • The default Loyalty Points payout for winning a Scouting Faction Play match has increased to 10 LP. 
  • The default Loyalty Points payout for losing a non-Scouting Faction Play match has increased to 25 LP. 
  • The default Loyalty Points payout for losing a Scouting Faction Play match has increased to 5 LP. 

Faction Play Leaderboards:

  • Loyalist and Mercenary Unit leaderboards have been brought back.

Patch Files (Direct Download)

To make the patching process easier for players with limited download caps, we'll be providing direct download links for the patch file(s) that comprise this patch. This will allow you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, for manual injection into the MWO patcher through a Patch Cache folder.
Aside from allowing you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, on another connection, there are no additional benefits to performing the patch this way; the patching process itself will be the same.
This direct patch download process will only work for players running the standalone client. It does not apply to players running MWO through Steam.

Patch File(s): To be provided on patch day

How to use these patch files
• Download the above file(s)
• For sake of ease we recommend creating a dedicated folder for the patch file(s), such as 'MWO Patch Cache'
• You do not need to unzip or unpack the patch file(s)
• Launch the MWO Portal
• Select the three horizontal lines in the top left of the Portal Window
• Choose the 'Specify Patch File Cache' option
• In the field that appears, paste or enter the location in which you saved the patch file(s) and hit OK
• For example, C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MWO Patch Cache
• Click the blue Patch button
• The launcher will now check the Patch Cache folder you defined. If it locates the required patch files, it will unpack and use those files to apply the patch.
• Once the patch is complete, launch the game
