Title: Chaos March Aug 23, 26-27 20:00 UTC
Post by: duelist on August 11, 2014, 12:10:08 AM
(http://mekmaster.com/images/CM8web.jpg)
What is it:
An ongoing planetary capture campaign. Initial round will be October 31 16:00- at least 0:00gmt. Five factions, led by faction leaders, attack one of thirty planets in a best of 5 map campaign. The event utilizes asset pools to provide asset persistence during a campaign. The drop commences with even numbered teams led by a drop commander. All campaigns add up to one turn of the event. The event continues on weekends until interest fades or a winner is declared. The faction with the most planets at the end will be declared the victor.

Time
Saturdays and most Sundays. 20:00gmt or when 8 players are ready until we finish. Next dates are in the thread header.

How to participate: Individuals
Show up on teamspeak at mwll.mwmaster.com.  Even if you do not have a microphone it can still be helpful to be able to listen to all of your teammates. Please connect to the ready room channel in the event channel. This will indicate you are ready to play and are waiting to be put into a team or faction for play.

How to particiapte: Units
Since there are 5 factions to play for, there is an opportunity for teams to play together throughout the campaign. Bring all of your players into the ready room on teamspeak mwll.mwmaster.com. Inform the supervisor you wish to play together. If you want to lead a faction for a campaign inform the supervisor of your selected leader.

Btw, thanks a lot for this event. It is nice to have one from time to time.

Made some changes to the event. Basically, defenders will have 10 regiments per planet and attack fleets will have 14 regiments. Planets will now be a best of 5 maps. Some other small stuff changed as well. Should make the event more fun. Next date Saturday from 18:00-0:00+gmt. ts3.bks.ca to play!  8)

Sheesh.. I let my team down twice.. :P First Match was a flawless victory, but then I landed on my tail and next time I ran right into their middle with my poor Hephy. I just were too excited and did not think anymore that time. But they still massacred them.. great team.

Now lets see if they can defend that system for good. Good luck guys and it was great. :)

Hey Star, sorry to be so rude but you shot and I could not hear some tactical talk. :P

But so far it comes down to a final battle this night... Mesas standing around, the Capellan Partisans had driven the Militia into the desert. Now it was time to bring them down for good. For the Chancellor!

The Capellan Partisans, having been successful in the last engagements obviously had their luck overstretched in the first battle of Sarna. They ran into a well prepared trap and were shot to pieces by LRMs. The rest was mopping up. It is rumored that the Capellan Commander collected some heads of his subcommanders already for their failure.

Just a quick update on the Chaos March. The event will run this coming weekend in four time slots: 02:00-0:600 UTC Saturday; 20:00-0:00 UTC Saturday; 02:00-0:600 Sunday; 20:00-0:00 Sunday.

Ok another update  8) . Adjusting the times due to feedback from our European and Asia area friends. The event will run this weekend from 02:00-06:00 UTC Saturday. Now the change, 14:00-18:00 UTC Saturday. 02:00-0:600 UTC Sunday. Finally, the other change: 16:00-20:00 UTC Sunday.

Important update: The Regiment system has been swapped with the new Pool system, which is way easier to use and makes things much more interesting and balanced. (if you can't use a Daishi D or Fafnir Prime, don't worry because your enemy won't be able to do so)

Also, the drop calculator is not available anymore

We are hard at work keeping the event rolling. That great Valentines Day graphic Menslo Wolf did a few posts back got me thinking. So I am looking for a graphic or banner to use for promoting the Chaos March. Preferably it should contain the event name in the picture. Open to seeing a few different graphics. Like some to promote the play times on weekends and the event teamspeak. We are working on editing that promo video we shot a few posts up. Anyone interested reply here or pm me. Thanks and I will see you all this coming weekend.

Hello everyone. This past weekend was a blast in the Chaos March. I figured it was time for an update on the event with the fall of the Terracap Confederation and the conquest of Elgin. The event continues to be driven primarily from feedback from players. So post back here or in the feedback thread http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20448.0.html  (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20448.0.html) if you have thoughts on these or any other Chaos March topics .I sent out a voting ballot to the council. The following are the results:

1) Should we adopt a ten minute time limit on the pre made drop lists?
Yes

2) Should we adopt a twenty minute time limit on the asset pools?
Yes

3) Should either asset pools or pre made drop lists become the full time system? Or should both be kept?
Both systems.

4) Should the planet attack process be modified to introduce more variety to the starmap?
Yes

 The event will starting testing the time limits moving forward. I am looking for ideas on how to improve the starmap. Here are some different ideas:

Planets would each have their own unique eighty asset pool or pre made drop deck.
Planets would be assigned factories that when captured would deny use of that mech to the enemy team.
Planets would give out rewards for capture. Some might be easier to attack. Some might reward the team with bonuses similar to the 2v2 bonus. Some planets might have a jump advantage for attacks.
Planets might be assigned priorities that effect the assets used in battle. A barren outpost world might only have tanks and some mechs. A capitol world might have a fully stocked fleet of asf, vtol, and top tier mechs.

So those are some of the things being worked on. A huge thank you to the continuing work of all the volunteers and the players that make this event possible. I will see everyone Saturday to continue the fight!

Okay so some updates to this weekends' Chaos March. We will attempt to bring some order to the between rounds preparation time while testing out some new ideas.

So on behalf of the International Team, I Duelist, Director of Clan Smoke Jaguar ,officially challenge both Eridani Light Horse (ELH) and Russian Death Legion (RDL) to a single 2v2 battle to occur this coming Saturday. The battles can begin before Chaos March or between maps. Each unit may pick a team of 2 pilots.

Saturday 11 April

Round 1

ELH vs SJ
Drop Weights: 170 total tons
Drop Restrictions: Mechs only, No Fafnir/Daishi, No duplicate variant (Don't use 2 Cougar F same match)
Map: TSA_Glory

Round 2

RDL vs SJ
Drop Weights: 170 total tons
Drop Restrictions: Mechs only, No Fafnir/Daishi, No repeating variant (Don't use 2 Cougar F same match)
Map: TSA_Glory

We will see how the test goes before deciding on future rounds.

Sunday we have one event scheduled as a test, a 15 minute TC Round. This will occur during “halftime” after drop 2 while lists are made for drop 3.

TC Test
Map: TC_Sandblasted
125 Tickets
15 minute time limit
Mixed Tech
Tie breaker: Total frags

The traditional Chaos March 2v2 will be played, upon request, following conclusion of drops. Otherwise it will return April 18th. The results of the latest council ballot will be shared as soon as I have heard back from all the members. See everyone this weekend.

Hey everyone. A quick reminder about a special edition of Chaos March: Chaos March Night Owl Edition Wednesday May 27 04:00-10:00 GMT (0:00-0:600 EST). Regular weekend schedule still intact. That is one extra day for players to come that normally cannot. Anyways:

Here is the tentative schedule for Chaos March on Saturday.

Map 1 TC Forsaken
Event Slot 1
Map 2 TSA Desolation
Even Slot 2
Map 3 TC FeralFangs
Event Slot 3
Map 4 TSA Goldenrocks
Event Slot 4
Map 5 TC Thermocline

Those open event slots will be filled with the following depending on the available pilots:

Other events depending on availability of pilots
Clan Smoke Jaguar vs Clan Wolverines Rebirth
SJ Unit 2v2
ELH vs RDL/SJ/WR 2v2
30 Minute Terrain Control Test
Public Last Man Standing

If the first campaign finishes before map 5 then map 1 of the new campaign will be a full, organized, terrain control test. We will then move to traditional drops using the randomizer. Hope to see a big turnout! Enjoy your weekend and I will see everyone Saturday

Update: This is a good preview of the aerospace event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuSSWFkeeL8 Thanks to Khorn for posting that. Great video Viper!

Greetings pilots! It has been a year since the last attempt so lets try this again :P

During the Chaos March this weekend the Invitational Aersopace Tournament is returning!

There will be 2 brackets, VTOL and Aerospace. Each bracket has 4 slots open. Priority given to those that sign up ahead of time. If three is enough interest a second bracket will be opened on Sunday. So here this will work. Players will face off in the semi finals on a single map. Assets may only be used once. So be sure to save that Shiva A for when it counts! Pilots in the VTOL bracket may take any VTOL. Pilots in the aerospace bracket may select a plane from the assigned class:

light
sparrowhawk

medium
corsair
sulla

heavy
visigoth
shiva

The finals will be decided best 2 of 3 maps. Crashes into the map will result in a loss. Crashes into the opponent will be handled on a case by case basis by the supervisor. The champion of each bracket will receive a bonus in a future campaign in the Chaos March for the team of their choice. Just for fun we might have the aersopace champion take on the vtol champion.

Interested in participaing? Reserve a spot by responding in this thread with your name and which bracket you want. Pilots may play in both brackets. Pilots can also show up at mwll.mwmaster.net teamspeak or the Chaos March server and ask to be included. Good luck pilots!

Here is an update on what we have been up to recently in the Chaos March. The Aerospace Invitational continues this weekend. Come have some fun and join us this weekend.

Flying assets will now be afforded the same protections against disconnect as ground assets enjoy. If a flying asset crashes before teams land shots then the pilot may rejoin the server and rejoin the fight. A hold will be given the same as currently happens with ground assets. However, once the battle has begun the flying pilots remain dead no matter the cause.

Flying assets will only be allowed in twelve player or higher matches beginning this weekend. It was always this way but now it is official policy.

Just a quick update, history records are now caught up.

Promotional Video: Assault on Airbase
https://youtu.be/H8JJALMxWX4

The drop lists are already done. Pilots need only show up to teamspeak mwll.mwmaster.net to participate.

So what have we been up to? Lots! Some minor rules adjustments. Flying stuff can now call for a hold and respawn if they crash before the fight begins. APC now come in a light and heavy variety. Terrain control was first played in an official match Sunday. Flying stuff and battle armor are now much more common in fights. The battle values were adjusted following a recent meeting; See the list below for the changes.

It is Saturday! Time for CHAOS MARCH! These are the battles for today. Please download these maps if you do not have them. The CJW link is in Europe, CQ link is in Canada. Auto downloader will be setup just in case.

We helped to test out the 2 new maps RDL Vitos made. (BTW do yourselves a favor and play them-they are great maps!) We held a special version of the event called Fireworks before Fireworks on the 4th. We even shot a couple really cool promotional videos. You can checkout the first release here:
Assault on Airbase
https://youtu.be/H8JJALMxWX4

Thanks to a bunch of really cool people I have the pleasure of working with-we continue to have a lot of fun every weekend. We are appreciative of the hard work Wandering Samurai did in creating this game. Last but not least-the MWLL Community-for coming back every weekend to play this thing. So eleven months in the book-a few more to go-we are here all summer long for your organized mechwarrior needs. Download Teamspeak client at http://teamspeak.com and join us (with or without microphone) at mwll.mwmaster.net !
The fun starts beginning at 19:00 GMT every weekend!

Meanwhile the Chaos March deployment and game style is totally different vs PUB-game style that the whole concept is out of window

we need:
1. a voluntary council to propose teams (have handy some cannon decks).
2. preserved decks (all the same all ways) that do the game each time (IS deck of 4,5 mechs and Clan spear of 4,5 mechs in few cannon variants (the MAD cat&dog, pumas etc/atlas+awesomes/warhams...)
3. We only suffer from asset limitations so far (one side gains one time, next time all players differ anyway) vs some standard lances each time

we need lance classes (like army) -we take it form cannon?

We might make the cannon three mech lances too?

so we deal with 3/4/5 lances of a class (1-5) instead of re-balancing a myriad of assets each now and then (to the joy of (http://www.abc.es/Media/201503/20/risitas-apple-dos--644x362.jpg)
Starch1ld))?

like:
clan:
MAD cat (pick variant)
MAD dog (pick...)
Cougar (..)
Puma ()
Uller () or Solitaire (pick...)

vs
Whammer (pick...)
Catapult ()
Bwacker (pick)
Ownes (pick)
Osris (pick)

we take the template and pick (for instance) long range variants
the laces would have BV of say 2

where we using assault lances, the BV would range from 4 (electronic heavy) up to 5 (direct fire heavy)
and
we would make occasional special lances (surprise party) with out of line assets (5 BA APC, Artemis  IV, LongTom)

and the council would be in session - after - each C-March day (as it already is ATMOF  ::) )

Anyhow some players always get the "better" assets  thereby doing away with all the BV-picking-unlimited (like having Vic.viper in a Daishy vs having me in the same? - where is the BV then  :-X )

So instead, we would balance by man->asset at game time and save the whole hassle for locker-room barrage instead?

what gives?

you are looking at it wrong , the battle values are within there category  Ryu is Mediums  and Cougar is Lights  the BV is based on how dangerous thay are Vs'ing there same catagory or atleast thats how i understand it

Well more or less, yes.

But only few people know that when I, Kentax and other folks out there tweaked the original values that Invictus gave when he ideated the system, we took into account one more thing: an additional point of rating given to the most used variants in order to descourage teams from taking them. And vice-versa, of course.
That's because we wanted to see more variants in the battlefield, and not the same mechs every time.

It made sense at that time because and teams were actually able to choose single mechs in their drop lists, but AFAIK the system now is a bit different, so idk if that would still make sense.

If assets are still chosen randomly, the extra point will have lost its purpose and may even undermine the system.

Is it true that BV is relative to the same weight-class only? Isn't, for example, "create a team with an average BV of 2.5" completely broken then? If no further criteria were taken into account, this could pit a horde of Awesomes against a horde of Bushwackers (or something similar).

If assets are still chosen randomly, the extra point will have lost its purpose and may even undermine the system.
Not exactly true, because even if they are chosen randomly, the random picker tool you're using would still take this point into account. So we would still see less cheesy assets, like Cougar F, Ryoken B, Epona E and that kind of stuff, as well as more *bad* assets that noone uses in pub games.

Is it true that BV is relative to the same weight-class only? Isn't, for example, "create a team with an average BV of 2.5" completely broken then? If no further criteria were taken into account, this could pit a horde of Awesomes against a horde of Bushwackers (or something similar).
Let me clarify it: t's supposed to work like this: each rating point is just relative to the weight class. A "Medium" point is slightly different than a "Heavy" point.
So, a 2 -points heavy lance it's supposed be able to beat a 2-points medium lance without many problems.

Technology (IS or Clan), instead, is not taken into account: that's why Ryokens and Madcats are rated higher than the other IS mechs of the same weight classes.

Well yeah you would see this but the Tool takes into account of wieght also and it would be like 5 Awesomes vs 10 Bushwackers , i mean theres still thinks limiteing that  like  team numbers Tonnage , BV , control on low number teams like dissallowance of air assets, .... but yeah  in the circumstance that a team had 10 pilots and a team had 5 there could be a 5 awesome vs 10 bushwacker fight .. unlikely anyone would want tyo do that though

It's been a while since I've looked at how things are calculated. Wouldn't it be more like 5 Awesomes vs 10 Chimera's? Bushies are 55 tons. Awesomes are 80. Chimeras are 40 (I think).

Let me run down how its supposed to work real quick, for anyone who wants to know:

The Randomizer is there as a true random value, when I was doing it by hand my judgment was primary, so for instance the best assets were ALWAYS paired with the most trash assets, and I tried to make sure every variant in the game was more or less included equally. But back then, I only balanced for player count. Tonnage wasn't even taken fully into account because it was supposed to be a modular system balanced around taking two or more lists and sticking them together. Problem was, we hardly ever had enough players back then so single lists were used and were terribly unbalanced.

When I got the Randomizer, thanks again Claw, I decided first that tonnage would have to be equalized per list and per player, since I could mass produce lists. Evenso, I have the final word on which lists I pick form the Randomizer, so I try to avoid having a morrigu in every single long list if I'm given a ton of those by the Randomizer, for instance.

Tonnage is the chief balance rule for MWLL drops; it always has been. An Atlas is never expected to equal a bushwacker which isn't expected to equal an Owens.
There are only three exceptions to this rule these days:

The Partisan - Has variously been considered its full canon 80 tons, 60 tons, and 50 tons, which I believe it is at now. Because the devs decided against giving it full 80 ton armor capabilities (main reason was that they needed it to be much cheaper to provide early game AA support) its too painful to consider it the full 80 tons and it will always be a burden when picked and will never be picked by hand.

The Vtols - Are canon 21 tons. But for accounting reasons and based on their generally increased weapons and armor, are considered 25 tons.

BattleArmors - It has never been fully decided just how many canon BA a single BA is supposed to represent. The leading theory has been that BA in MWLL represent the strength of a star of BA in canon, which each weigh 1 ton, thus BA are considered 5 tons. This has changed several times over the years though.

Weight wasn't enough though. The program didn't know how to distinguish between a Ryoken B and a Bushwacker Prime. Thus I created a BV system, something I had been thinking about since the old planetary league days but never got around to. The BV system in MWLL is totally ad hoc not systematic. People are right when they accuse us of implementing and changing the BV based on our most recent observations, that's the point of the system.

I favored the current system over two alternatives. The first was a systematic one where each weapon, ton of armor, piece of equipment, and chassis had its own BV number and added together would represent the variants BV. But that was scraped because unlike Battletech, some configurations would not be a simple numbers sum of their parts in this game. Also it would've been overly complicated. Finally, cbills in MWLL represent more closely BV 2.0 in battletech than they do actual cbill numbers. Then I thought of a 1-10 scale so that nuances could be respected... but I scraped this because some needless grey areas wouldve been prevented and I wanted the smallest simplest integers for the program to work with.

So a 1-5 scale was decided on:
1 = poor
2 = average
3 = above average
4 = excellent
5 = over powered

The usual BV limit I give in random lists is a multiple of 2.25, or 9 BV per 4 players.
BV is assigned based of the perceived historical performance of the asset in its role. Its role includes its weight, range bracket, and function (tank,scout,sniper,etc).

For instance: The Shadowcat F is rated 1; the Shadowcat Prime is rated 2; and the Shadowcat C is rated 4. All three are clan 45 ton jump snipers. The Prime is standard, a jumping gauss with MASC and JJs at 45 tons with a couple CERMBLS is nice to have, but not overly excellent because the MBLs dont match the Gauss range and it runs into some heat problems. The F is considered poor because it lacks MASC, any heatsinks, and the LBX5s are more for mid range sniping than max range sniping and need a little more time to rack up the damage. The C is considered 4 because it is probably the most jump damage for the smallest tonnage (not to mention smallest profile) in the game. Even back years ago when there were hardly any build rules, units would sometimes opt for almost entire lists of Shadowcat Cs because they are just that good.

The performance of the Catapult or Thor at jump sniping have no effect on the scats rating. However, the perceived performance of the Hollander at jump sniping may be effected by its inevitable comparison to the Shadowcat, as it shares the same tonnage.
The tonnage and BV of a list will always be equal for both sides so long as the player count is equal.

The final piece is that lists are also balanced by Cbills. This is to balance the two techs, as that is the mechanism MWLL uses to balance their relative value.
Historically clanvsIS was dealt with using a tonnage modifier favoring IS, I think it was 360v300? This doesn't work in a mixedtech scenario and I think cbills are a better system anyways.

Each list will be within ~1.5% of its counterpart on the other team. Meaning that, brawl 1 on attackers and brawl 1 on defenders will be within ~1.5%, usually less, which is really really close to equal when hundreds of thousands of cbills are taken into account. They will not be balanced between the other lists, so brawl 3 might have 5% more cbills than brawl 1, but both brawl 3s will be within ~1.5%.
So yes, clan tech is taken into account and the cbills are not there on the lists for show. A BV 3 Daishi takes up more space on a list than a BV 3 Atlas, robbing the list of up to 50k more cbills to spend on other assets.

The reason I change the cbills up a bit from week to week and list to list is that, if I don't, the program will favor the same builds over and over and over. But know that both teams always have very close to equally valued lists available.

Taken together, the three parts of this system are supposed to work together, tonnage being the main hardlimit, BV being the flexible performance gauge, and cbills being the techbase balancer.

So take the latest changes to the BV on the Partisan B as an example. From 5 to 4. I initially put 5 because it was decided to be 50 tons rather than my suggested 60 tons. So it had all the rape of x4 RAC2s but on something more survivable than the rifleman variant and at a cheaper cost. Had it been 60 tons, or equal to the rifleman, I would've brought it down along with some of the other variants. However, everyone else pointed out in the meeting that 5 just sucks too much away from the list and causes the partisan B to rarely ever be included in the lists and a bit of a drain when it is. Thus it was changed. So, the system is tweaked to refer to itself in addition to battlefield performance.

BV 4 and 5 are generally reserved for the higher weight classes as they are expected to do the heavy lifting in a norespawn scenario.
So to starchilds concern over the Cougar F being reduced.. the Cougar F is insanely powerful in Solaris Arena and the early stages TC/TSA matches, but in a norepsawn chaos march type scenario? We haven't really been seeing it destroy any worlds. It fills its role admirably, but is that last BV point REALLY worth it on the cougar or would it better be spent in the medium or heavy category?
The Cougar D had its fans at the vote and it was argued that the differences between the effectiveness of the two are not different enough to warrant the extra point. In other game modes the F will always be better because it is cheaper and thus available sooner. Furthermore, I pointed out that I've seen the Cougar E destroy worlds in chaos march drops. I've seen it multiple times be on the winning team AND have the highest score. It is only rated at a 3... so it seemed the F was overrated.

The BV scores will be continually tweaked as more information is acquired. Remember that everything changed in the 0.7.0 release balance wise and we're still figuring out just where everything stands. Outside of Chaos March prime time, the game isn't played as much as it used to be so assumptions can still be proven wrong on the battlefield.

So, Starchild, the following suggestions aren't out of the question entirely;

Shiva A 5->4
Donar A 5->4
Thanatos D 4->3

I think the latter two are possible.
The second was harshly voted down because we've seen it carry just as hard in norespawn as in other game modes. However the way air is used in the random system now, the warnings that a Donar A might be available to the other team could prompt AA to be taken, and good AA shuts down the Donar A pretty hard. Where-as in a double blind scenario a wild Donar A showing up just rapes so much face compared to the other variants it just seems stupidly broken.

I agree that the Thanatos D is riding more off of reputation than proved performance these days. The SRM and heat changes hit it pretty hard from its glory days. The C is the one I always compare it to and that is BV 2 now, is it really that much better these days?

The Shvia is unlikely to happen, but I can see the argument. In an organized situation the Shiva A does not have the unstoppable reputation it does in standard pubstomp game modes. When utilized with a proper ground distraction though it is still amazing. When compared with the Fafnir, it is far more vulnerable. However, it also brings x2 Hgauss 20 tons sooner and can approach from angles the Fafnir could only dream of. Seeing as all of the Hgauss Fafnirs are rated at 5... given the trade-offs... it would be a hard pill to swallow to say that a flying fafnir (albeit with far less armor) should be a lower BV than one stuck on the ground at 53/kph.

Finally, for anyone interested, I have a couple more rules I use in the random lists;
No more than one tank;
Never pick the Partisan E;
No more than one Chevy; (it isn't considered a tank in the program)
No more than one hovercraft;
Price is usually around 70-80k per person;
Brawl variants are disallowed in long and artillery lists;
Artillery variants are disallowed in brawl and medium lists;
Long tom is only allowed for 7+ players and only on artillery 3.

We're currently working on how to have more BA in the drops... but its proving controversial.

Nice breakfast read. I didn't know there was so much thought put into everything.

No more than one Chevy; (it isn't considered a tank in the program)
That is taken directly from MWLLs nomenclature and can easily be changed, though. You could change the type to Tank or filter for category instead, where tanks should all be listed as Tracked.
But I suspect you already know your way around the generator better than me by now. Just wanted to make sure.

By the way: Are the Chaos March events recorded? I have been using Linux for a long time now, whith no ability to play MWLL. Thinking back to some of the events during the heyday, there often were recordings, sometimes even narrated like sports games. I might have overlooked it, but is there anything like that for Chaos March?

I know I haven't played in a long ass time, but those BV changes seem right on to me.  Last I played there were some pretty wonky things in my opinion, especially the Demo Prime at 5, which I think was more than the UAC10 version.

I think everyone should trust Vicky, he is a hardcore no nonsense, pretty unbiased dude when it comes to these things.  I think he is just trying to make it fun and workable.

I would have just put a bullshit spin on it and say, Hey guys the Battle Values have change do to production cycles in the Inner Sphere/Clan space. :P

so, in short:
The BV values are Orgaised Event specific adjustments to the Tonnage & C-bill rating?  ???
They are introduced to faciliate more fair team balance? :)

For the purpose of more even fun for each side? ( I can live with that)

How about organized "Thermophiles" type of games, where (volunatry) players would be "underdog" side and try "die hard"? 8)

Just don't tell me wars are fair, so why war sims shuld attempt to be? ???

Come join us today in the Chaos March. Stop by the teamspeak server for information, mwll.mwmaster.net . Need to download the free teamspeak client? Go to http://teamspeak.com .

Here is a quick an update from the latest vote of the Chaos March Council. There were seven questions voted on:
1) Shall heavy APC allow up to three simultaneous pilots? Each additional pilot would consume one space on drop list at bv of one. Answer yes or no.
2) Should question one pass, should each extra ba weigh 5 tons or 10 tons? Answer 5 or 10.
3) Should question one pass, should:
A) each ba have a total of 4 respawns in a heavy APC?
B) the APC comes with a pool of 12 total spawns shared among the pilots?
Answer A or B
4) Shall dead pilots be allowed to respawn solely with a small beam laser from an APC and count toward the pool of remaining BA lives? Answer yes or no.
5)  Shall the existing draw rule be amended to award victory to the defending faction? Answer yes or no.
6) Shall aerospace be allowed to land and rearm from bases when an APC is fielded?
7) Shall a ba that cockpits a mech be allowed to steal the mech to pilot for the rest of the match? Answer yes or no.

The results are that heavy apcs will now support up to three pilots. Each additional pilot will weigh 10 tons and count as bv 1. The battle armor pilots will each have four total lives. The tie rule will remain unchanged. Teams will still be awarded a tie with a sixth map played when necessary to break the tie. Aerospace will now be allowed to rearm at bases when a team fields an apc. Battle amor pilots that cockpit a mech may choose to pilot the remains of the stolen mech.
Most of these changes will be implemented by next weekend.

This is correct.
1 MWLL BA = 1 Canon BA Star

As designed.

Post by: Vic-Viper.v1 on August 03, 2015, 06:20:13 AM
The idea i proposed was

battle armor be = to 10 ton   

Rational-
              : In a  light APC the battle armor count be 4 BA countable lives resulting in a 40ton with a  lower battle value

              : A heavy APC with a total 12 BA countable Lives Resulting in a 120ton With a  higher battle value

The reason for the Higher ton is to also include the APC in the tonnage, so that  the APC does not have to be calculated separately

this would also result in Balance for the teams so that  one side doesn't have a APC with 3 pilots - 4 lives each  and 3 assault class mechs on one side but rather a balance in the tonnage - this based on a 6 man drop list  with the current tonnage of 35 tons

it changed to a 120 ton will diversify the tonnage giving the Risk/Reward usage of that  Heavy APC

Id also like to note that  APC should if not already does allow for Rearming this too would be accountable for the higher tonnage of 120 tons

Pros of the APC with 12 total lives
      Hard to hit small targets
      Stealth due to radar ranges being very  short
      All equipped with the possibility  of support, attack , and reconnaissance. Ba can  use PPC , and or Tag laser to supportive roles
      When  not targeted the Ba pose a large threat to units ignoring them for other more juicer targets
      If apc is un-found the Ba are free to re spawn
      Rearming, need i say more?

Cons of the APC 12 lives
         BA are very squishy, one shot kill normally, this is a risk worthy of the spoils
         APC being found will put a hult to BA spawning , this is a IF scenario Apc's are rarely found
         Take up pilots that can be in other assets Light,Med,Heavy,Assault

the 120ton with a battle value of say 4 will keep it fare and keep it diverse for drop decks

Chaos March News Wire

It has been a week since the alliance between the Saiph Triumvirate and the Capellan Partisans defeated the Duchy of Small. Procyon was the final of the thirty planets to fall before their might. The Sarna Supremacy, Terracap Confederation, Styx Commonality, and Duchy of Small have not been quiet since loosing the conflict. Rumors have always been persistent, but unsubstantiated, that their involvement in the conflict was not finished.

The successor states have officially paid no attention to the sector over the past year. Privately, anonymous sources have indicated the states are heavily concerned about the outcome. While no one faction was favored, the interests of unknown external parties match sightings of lone star ships throughout the sector. Now it seems the factions are no longer alone in the conflict.

A large group of unmarked ships came out of a jump point on a path toward the planet Sarna. Reports are coming in that the successor states have provided a hastily-assembled fleet of ships to resupply and rearm the fallen factions. They intend to challenge the Saiph/Capellan victory in the area. The size and mission of the fleet remain unknown.

The response from the Saiph Triumvirate has been swift. They have mobilized their first strike fleet to intercept the unknown enemy. The Capellans are further behind as the majority of their forces are still deployed on Northwind and Procyon. But local reports suggest a quick mobilization as drop ships are landing across the planets. None of the successor states will go on record about the operation.

Military analysts expect the conflict to begin in deep space between aerospace fighters before mechs make landings on nearby asteroids and moons. A successful offensive would likely proceed to the moons of Sarna before advancing to remote areas of the planet. The Saiph forces will be heavily entrenched by the time the attackers make planet fall. Regardless of the Capellan/Saiph victory the Chaos March may not be finished just yet.

The Epilogue

Consider it the epilogue. There is unfinished business between the factions. There will be puretech action most of the weekend. One side will receive one copy of every clan asset. The other will get one copy of every inner sphere asset. The teams will swap technology trees between campaigns. Some campaigns will feature the same trees such as IS vs IS. Play will alternate between a majority of drops and some terrain control. Factions will alternate roles based upon the next stage of the campaign.

The event starts at the scheduled time with gameplay suited for the number of players on hand. The smaller conflicts will tie into the overall campaign. Attacks are linear and progress occurs both based upon outcomes of matches and factors determined in the meta game. Play will continue for the next few weekends until the endgame is reached. A special engagement is planned for the final stage of the conflict.

The noble freedom Fighters of Capella have fought their irresistible and righteous fight. No one can stand before them and survive. The Capellan People will be free!

Rumors have it that the Celestial Throne condones the action of the Capellan Partisan Resistance and is preparing to support the victorious forces with much needed war material. No official word has come about though and it remains to be seen how this plays out on the region.

i was thinking lately could we possibly do a multi-view battle video? ???
Like mixing few players into a tension packed sequence?

I can do this stuff, but if we want good video quality, we need 4k resolution, and uploading a decent 4k video on YT would take a lifetime with my connection. Plus, the software I use for video editing doesn't support my video card (cause it's too new), so I would take another lifetime to encode the video.

if ever watched a football game (or any team event) the main moment of any TV broadcast is the multitude of viewing angle (zoom, total, critical points)

So i imagine a TC game with:
- free-flight spotters on "main" bases (one person switching position)
- a team follower (not spectator rather a "dead" player) each side
- and a commentator in spectator mode- following  the game heights and "doing talk"
- a "journalist" asking questions re: trivia, culture  (could be the 1st above man)
so this makes a team of 4 crewman to do the "filming"

or a CM (Chaos_March) game:
- a top flying spectator "spotter" and commenter seeking total angles covering "the best overall"
- a "dead" each team-side with detailed angle (both "following" and "free flight")
- a "journalist", one  from the upper two crew mans.
after the production is to cut and mix the material to get "real-time" timeline with the voices in the background
The mix is to balance out the boring moments of the timeline in each match with interesting conversations and better yet footage during that time (for instance a glimpse on how the particular map and time of day really stand out?).
 
NOTE:
I only discovered the true depth of MW:LL immersion by spectating organized matches with TS voice-overs
Had there been produced multiview videos it would hit the nail on the head IMO :-X

of course, once a crew is established,there could be more promotional videos type:
- n x BA vs Y category Mech
- particular game tactics:
   -LRM camping
   -poop-tarting :o,
   -base-rape,
   -BA ballooning (on Hellsgate),
   -Sniping (BA and/or LtGauss)
et cetera?
BEWARE: it might be fun :o to do :(

So a radio array technician is sitting around doing her business. A nice cool autumn evening, she is suspended 400m off the ground of the desert. Clouds are below her as the sun starts to set. She is leading the work of decommissioning satellite dish number four off the Ivory Tower Array. She thinks about the history of this array. It has brought numerous discoveries of the cosmos over its storied history. The donations to the volunteer project have been declining for years since that new commercial array was built a few counties over. She recalls that her array carried on as fewer and fewer people paid attention to it as she finished dismantling the control box. Before she cuts the power to effectively shut down the array for good the dish begins to move by itself. She checks the tower to see who is playing around-but there is no one there. She is alone on the field. Curious, she disconnects the harness and climbs down to the ground control computer. Horrified she sees the computer running alongside the still adjusting antenna-right next to the severed master power cable… but all her attention is solely on the incoming radio message, originating from a seemingly dead planet, asking her simply “Ever been to Mars?”….

Late 3067: Fedcom civil war is over. During the war several petty wars were fought in the Chaos march by small powers. In the wars, two main outcomes emerged.
Firstly, the Duchy of Small took the civil war as opportunity to declare independence and cut a large state for themselves in the north of the march.
Secondly, in the south Capellan sentiments ran high and the Liao Commonality has been born... on paper anyways. To enforce these "legal holdings" which the planets have voted for of their own accord (with the help of a few coups) the Capellan Commonality of the Confederation has stepped in to enforce the demands of the new Liao Commonality's existence.
While the Saiph Triumvirate and Terracap Confederation survived to some degree, their influence was limited and they merely survived.

But real chaos has only begun. Thomas Marik (the false) has attempted to have the star league recognize the new Blake Protectorate after the events of Taskforce Vengeance. The request was denied and in the following turmoil, this and other events have caused the star league to break up. Seeing the attempt at legitimacy, the Duchy of Small has demanded that they be recognized as a state and potential member of any new star league. Only one house expressed any interest in the idea, the Draconis Combine. The Federated Suns, with the civil war ended, were going to deal with the Duchy of Small diplomatically but have now sent a full task force to Tikonov to reclaim the Duchy and "control" the Liao situation. The Duchy itself has been fractured by sudden Blakist coups and terror attacks shortly following the outrage at Outreach but has been promised support from the Combine. The Jihadists have suddenly carved out a state around Terra and have set up a command at Sirius to oversee the glorious expansion into all space around Humanity's capital. In the horror and confusion following the events at outreach the Free Worlds League has suddenly broken out with symptoms of the blakist disease it has been carrying for some time. In opposition to the Captain General's "wishes" the parliament has voted to create an emergency protectorate (in direct mock of his blakist proposal) to protect the freedom of the remaining independent planets in the region, mainly focusing around Saiph and Styk via the Zion Provence.

Hoping to grasp the March once and for all the Capellans have mobilized their full attack capability to liberate all worlds in the Liao Commonality while the rest of their border with the Federated Suns holds in defense. On top of all of this, small units from several different clans have been arriving into the region following the crimes against the wolf's dragoons.

Foochow has just experienced a Jihadist coup; forward units from the Federated task force have just brought order to Terra Firma; exultant citizens of Liao are mobilizing and preparing to hold out for their Capellan saviors; the Saiph Protectorate has declared Arboris a protected planet; the the Duchy's forces on Elgin, under Combine advisers, have crushed an attempted Jihadist coup and executed thousands in the street; the Chaos is in full swing!

Want to share the news? http://cq.mwmaster.net/index.php/57-the-chaos-march  (http://cq.mwmaster.net/index.php/57-the-chaos-march)

"We thought the Clans were bad; the Chaos March is worse. Don't look at me like I'm crazy for saying that- I've been there. I know. With the Clans, you know who your enemies are. You never know in the Chaos March. The enemy could be the one your employer says it is, or the folks you're supposed to be protecting. Or even the guy whose contract you just signed. You never know."   - From an interview with Cal Ecchardt, former lance commander of the Cold Steel Cowboys, a now-defunct mercenary unit, Outreach channel 2, March 3058.

Welcome to the Chaos March. This is a weekly event hosted by the MWLL community, for the MWLL community. It features a persistent campaign spanning  the whole canonic Chaos March section of space - a place where mayhem and destruction are just another day's business. Four factions face off against each other on the countless maps MWLL has to offer in engagements meant to recreate the spirit of Battletech, to be experienced in first person.

As the pinnacle of the previous community meta games held by the MWLL community in previous years, Chaos March 2.0 is launching this weekend on Saturday, 31st October, 16:00 GMT, leading into two more game nights on Sunday and Monday.

The center of the new Chaos March is the Star Map (https://i.imgur.com/0oDxLAE.jpg (https://i.imgur.com/0oDxLAE.jpg)), the base for a persistent campaign, tracking each faction's fighting assets, and progress amongst the stars. Every planet captured matters, be it for industrial manufacturing, c-bills gained from trade worlds, or insight into the enemy fleet by helping your spies gain control of strategically important worlds.
Each player or clan is part of a faction, fighting for their own ends, control, and ultimately, dominance over the Chaos March.

Here's how you can join:

Get on to our game servers or Teamspeak 3 Server under mwll.mwmaster.net any Saturday or Sunday between 16:00 GMT – 0:00 GMT. Teamspeak 3 is a free program that is required so you can hear your team's coordination, a mic is helpful but not at all required.

You can get TS3 here: https://www.teamspeak.com/downloads  (https://www.teamspeak.com/downloads)

The Battlelog and all other related materials about Chaos March are in this thread: http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20442.0.html (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20442.0.html)

The lines have been drawn. The fleets are in place. The attack will commence on Saturday, 31st October, 1600 GMT/1200 EST.

- Will you be a forgotten casualty, or a living legend?

So the 2012 planetary league had more than it's fair share of problems, but one problem it didn't have is a problem that "Chaos March: Jihad" does have: difficulty in preparing drop lists for each weight restriction and for different numbers of players. In the 2012 PL we had 360 tons for IS and 320 tons for Clan and then a different tonnage for mixed lists. You were allowed to take between 4 and 10 players so we had (at times)games of 4 v 10, but even tons per side (or at least 360 tons IS puretech vs 320 tons Clan puretech). Because of this, we weren't restricted so heavily by asset tonnages.

During this week's Chaos March, I had 1 pack of light mechs, 1 pack of aircraft, 1 pack of medium mechs, 1 pack of medium tanks, 1 pack of heavy tanks, 1 pack of assault mechs, 1 pack of light APC, 1 pack of heavy APC, and 2 individually purchased heavy mechs.

I purchased a very balanced list of assets but between BV and tonnage, I could not construct an effective list. I had to drop several LRM assets on TSA Sandblasted all because of the inflexibility of our drop list creator. I had to drop ryokens because of too high BV. Had to drop LRM Atlas because of tons. Put the Ryoken back in because of tons. Downgraded LRM owens to MRM owens to accommodate the BV of the Ryoken. We could have managed this if we'd been allowed to run with one fewer player to save on tonnage or if we'd been allowed to save on BV and tonnage simultaneously by allowing one player to switch to battle armor. Current rules, for some reason, don't allow Battle Armor to operate without APCs.

The Planetary League did BA better, but it wasn't without flaws. I'm sure we can learn from the Planetary League and make a rules system that is simpler, more fun, and more fair than either Chaos March: Jihad or the 2012 Planetary League.

Quote
(6.5)      BattleArmor and APCs.
BattleArmor are purchased in packs of five. When included in a drop, packs of BA weigh 5 tons and are not separated, all five BA are committed to the drop together. BA that are deployed as a pack in this way are allowed to take any weapon loadout from the available BA weapons in MechWarrior Living Legends.

Though all five BA in a pack are committed to a drop together, all five BA do not necessarily need a player controlling them. If at any point a player that was already playing as BA dies, he/she may respawn at any APC or back at the hangar as a BA (with a full loadout of weapons), doing so uses up one more BA from the pack of five. BA Players need to pay close attention to the number of remaining BA on their team as it determines the total number of respawns they get. The total number of respawns may be split between the players playing as BA in any way. Players that did not start a drop as either a BA or APC driver may never respawn as BA.

Example: A faction brings one pack of five BA into a drop and there are three players playing as BA. This means that there are two BA respawns to be shared between all three of the players. This can mean one of the three players respawns twice or that two of the three players each respawn once while the last player gets no respawns.

Example: A faction brings four packs of five BA into a drop and there are four players playing BA. This means that the sixteen BA respawns to be shared between all four of the players. This can mean one of the players respawns sixteen times, that four players each get four respawns, that two players each get eight respawns, or any other combination that totals sixteen.

APCs require a driver at the start of a drop. The driver may eject at any time and fight in the drop as a BA. The driver of an APC only gets the standard loadout of weapons for BA (Small Laser, SSRM 2, 1 C8 Charge, 1 Inferno Charge). Teams that include one or more packs of BA in the same drop as any APCs no longer get one standard equipped BA per APC. The team must instead assign one of the BA from a pack of BA to drive each APC. In this case the drivers of the APCs are allowed to be equipped with any weapons MWLL allows.

Example: A faction includes two APCs in a drop. The two drivers of the APCs are allowed to eject and may only use the standard loadout of weapons for BA.

Example: A faction instead includes two APCs and one pack of BA in a drop. The two drivers of the APCs are allowed to eject and may use any BA weapons they wish.

Any faction that includes packs of BA in a drop loses a pack every time five of its BA are killed regardless of which packs those BA came from.

Packs of five BA survive any drop that they are in so long as there is at least one remaining carrying asset and at least one BA remaining at the end of drop.

Example: A faction brings two packs of five BA into a drop. At the end of the drop, the faction lost nine individual BA and the faction still has a carrying asset. This means that the faction lost in total one full pack of five BA. The second pack of BA will be back to full strength after the Repair and Rearm Cycle.

Quote
6.7)      Carrying Assets
A carrying asset is any asset other than Aerospace, VTOLs, Battle Armor, APCs, or immobilized ground assets.

BA and APCs count as carrying assets so long as there is at least one surviving BattleArmor and APC on the same team and the 30 minute drop timer has not run out. Once the 30 minute drop timer runs out, APCs and BA no longer count as carrying assets.

Also, some of the ELH players would like to have salvage. I don't know if it's that important, but if it isn't too doficult we should probably do it.

Quote
(6.10)      Salvage
At the end of every turn dice will be rolled for each faction by a PL Admin for each battle that happened during the turn. Odds will be 1 in 4 for the winner on each planet and 1 in 7 for the loser on each planet. Battles in limbo will receive no salvage rolls.
A second die will be rolled to see how many of the drops during the turn there was salvage for.
A third die will be rolled to determine which destroyed asset will be salvaged.
The PL Admin will include salvaged assets in the EOTR.

Can we have an asset buy-back program? Like we lose half or 75% of the value of the sold asset. For example the Corsair D and Shiva G are almost completely useless. So after we bought these assets, maybe on the following turn, we sell them for just a tiny bit, because otherwise they are worthless.

Battles for the Planet Ashkum, Capellan Partisans attacking.

1 Map:
~ unnamed source


The Capellan Partisans took a daring assault on this planet. However, they drew together not their usual, successful and streamlined force, but rather a "foreign-legion" style force made up of excellent Warriors, but with not enough experience fighting together. It remains to be seen if they can still do it, because their first engagement saw them walking right into a trap. Their long-range units were slaughtered, and they had to regroup with extreme casualties. It is certain that the Chancellor will be fuming when he will get the news. Should this not be turned around, heads will roll, that is the only thing that is certain by now. By now the spirit of the Capellans seem shaken, but not broken, another of these outcomes however, can put this operation in serious jeopardy.

***
2. Map: Dustbowl

Intercepted Radio transmission:

".. shit, are you sure? Unbelievable. If anyone's listenin', the Capellans kept a fighting unit, but seems they already scraped the bottom of the barrell, what's this? Really? Kidding? Ok, it seems they split up but what I heard is that they had some problems getting their Mechs full. Nice machines, no doubt, but when they put Tankers in Mechs, that means either they have enough Mechs or someone at the Quartermaster's really messed up. I guess there will be some kind of duel(ist) to reckon for it. Provided they survive on this planet. At least they.. Many PPCs!, they seem to be able to keep up with the defenders. Losses on both sides now. Gotta get in cover. Out."

"HA, that one Mech just froze just when faced with the enemy. They took it down with pleasure I gues. Must have been a total green Mechy, or if you will a tanker that was strapped to a Mech's cockpit. In earlier times, no one would have even thought about such bullshit. At least it got the rest going and they are getting into a good rhythm. Seems the defenders try to split them up. Means they still got the upper hand.

I know I said they had quality pilots in the rest, seems it pays off."

"I can't get over that tanker-for Mechpilot, though. Should i feel sorry that he died there, or was he even proud to be a Mechpilot once in his life? Won't buy him anything now, I guess. They do some cat and mouse right now. Exciting if you discount all the dead."

"Ok, seems they hunt now for the last heavier defenders. Ammo must be low, but they might pull it off. Unbelievable. Imagine that with a real Mechwarrior instead.. they would have overrun to the HQ by now. Perhaps.
There falls the last defender. They did it.

Capellans are weird. I go back to hiding."

***

3. Map: Extremity

Intercepted Radio Transmission:

"Seems they have secured their foothold on the planet, now there's a big relay station in the Asteroid field, they wanna get. Might be their original target, too. It is a hub. Anyway, seems they go Mech only, fitting for this environment, but of course, vehicles would need some special treatment and be viable too, but who cares. They seem to have enough able pilots up there. I hear a strange language being spoken, is that chinese? No, russian. Remember before Xin Sheng? Yeah, seems there are still some left who talk this ancient language. Was once the biggest country on Terra. How I know, well, I do."

"Good mix of Mechs, the defenders of Ashkum (Space division) might have heard of the loss on the planet by now. Let us see what they are made of. If you dont know, the HPG array is an impressive sight, they send almost constantly. There is money and influence had whoever controls this stuff."

"You should give the advantage to the defenders here normally. They know the terrain. However, the "day/night" cycle on this rock is remarkably fast and completely hostile to life. Without a suit you die. In the shadow you just freeze in seconds, when the sun burns, you just cook like a sausage. I won't envy any of those poor bastards who'll get shot outta their machine here."

"They split up again, this time a heavier and a lighter group. I did mention the heat and the freezing, right? Add some of the small meteorites and you almost get it. Now, dont fear for the HPGs, they are LosTech and are well protected."

"They stare each other down in the heat, seems both fear the temperature."

"Now it gets dark again; did I mention there is a sea of liquid at the HPG main base? That stuff freezes immediately after sunset. When it is hot, the stuff cooks and all the shit from the asteroid wants to vaporize. Could be beautiful if there weren't so many Warmachines.

Now they ran into each other. Already some deads. They gettin' slaughtered! Whao, so many Autocannons on the defenders, vs Energyweapons. That was quick. The defenders were better equipped for this field, well, those poor Capellan bastards that live will probably run and try to turn the tide on the planet.
Tell you what, the defenders even had ground vehicles, go figure. I better get outta here."

@whoever created the new retarded garrison system: please try refreshing your head with this. Giving worse assets to one team (and stacking all the vets in the other one) is one of the best things you can do, if you want to kill this game once for all. We already lost a big number of players in these latest days, because of this.

No, Invictus. I'm pretty sure you took me wrong.
This system makes sense, and it would definitely be a good one if we had a solid and stable playerbase.
But using this system for a game which is played also by pubs who don't care about assets, garrisons and so on, it's a big nope, cause they will get what other people chose.

This is the same problem that the first ruleset of chaos march had. Always designing things for a solid playerbase, with stable teams / units / whatever. It's something we can't just afford now.

tbh I don't even understand why did you even came up with a new system
If you really wanted to make things more competitive, you could have just rolled back to the very first regiment system that you created, which was actually good. I'd rather use that one than the current one.

But as we all know, we had to change it, cause we didn't even had regular players at that time. So Burner and I came up with that fancy asset pool system, which worked very well, because pools were assigned in a very specific way that both teams always had similar assets. With the current implementation, the pool system is completely useless, cause it was meant to be used in a very specific way, and that's why it worked. Now it's broken and messed up, that's why it doesn't work anymore.

That's why it is retarded.

Whatever, man.

"No Invictus. I'm pretty sure you took me wrong"

This was the point of putting criticism in quotations, all I got to go on was a semi rant and a picture of a shampoo bottle. :P

You're correct actually, the older systems were created for quick open merc type battles with little to no set up. But over the months I have been asked repeatedly for a more involved system giving more and more control until we've reached now where its a league system which as you said, is really designed for a larger player base.

Could you elaborate on "broken and messed up" when it comes to pairing the asset pool system with the random generation of pools?

Also, team balance has always and will always be a separate issue than whatever asset system we use.

I've always advocated the simplest and quickest of systems to get as many battles played. But many players want their mind at ease that they did ALL possible to win when they lose a match, and its very easy to just say "we only lost because of worse assets thrown upon us".

I don't even know how things are going at the moment player population wise, I never get to play anymore more than perhaps 1 or 2 battles every other week.

Post by: Warlord Kentax on November 30, 2015, 01:44:38 AM
I think we should remove coup d'etat as a game mechanic. There are a lot of reasons.

1. Espionage points, while it would be fun in an automated planetary league, it adds more work for the battle supervisor and forces the faction leaders to be present at drops in order to remember to use them.

2. Drafting assets from a mutual list is very time consuming and makes things even more difficult. We already have a c-bill economy, tonnage limitations, battle value limitations, and player count limitations making it difficult to build droplists. Swapping the c-bill economy out for a draft system doesn't make things less difficult or the same, it makes it WAAYY more difficult. We could have fit in another drop or two if we hadn't had to deal with the draft system.

3. Coup d'etat are just a point sink for espionage points. There's no real advantage to investing a lot of points because they all get lost after the coup attempt. How is it that I lose all of my espionage points if the coup fails? I spent 2 whole turns worth of espionage points on a single action and got exactly zero benefit. All it did was destroy assets that were garrisoned at the planet, but that doesn't matter because that doesn't actually hurt our enemies. If we go next turn and try to attack that planet then they'll be able to defend it with their main fleet. All their losses from this turn don't affect their ability to defend at all.

Another thing, the espionage points that I put into that planet, they are all gone. That's two full turns worth of espionage points, gone! We failed our coup, but there was a coup, it should have some effect. Less money for their next turn, dead assets from their pool, tonnage penalties for the defenders on that planet for one turn, random asset pools for the next round instead of the normal purchased assets, no benefits from that planet for the next turn (in the case of Terra Firma it would be the loss of the depot for 1 turn). Something. Come on.

Post by: Warlord Kentax on December 08, 2015, 11:05:04 PM
If we keep coups in the game, I'd like to see them cease being random. Besides, they will seem random enough when you consider that two factions are putting intelligence points and espionage points on the planet. Let's say it takes 6 espionage points to cause a coup and your faction puts 6 points on a planet. The next turn comes around and *surprise* no coup because the other team countered with intelligence points.

Alternatively we could make it way, way more difficult to cause a coup and instead of creating a single random garrison that is drafted or mirrored to both factions, you could generate the garrison from the defending factions purchased assets. I suspect, as this Chaos March keeps going on, that some factions with limited losses and strong economies are going to start overflowing with assets. Coups would be a good tactic for loosing or straggling factions simply to put a dent in the overall asset pool of the other faction. Of course this would need to be balanced somehow like drops are played until all assets are dead (becomes neutral planet) or until the attacking faction loses two times, or loses 3 times or something. The sheer number of assets lost would probably be pretty high so it should either take a lot of espionage points to cause a coup to happen and/or be very difficult for the attackers to actually take the planet.

The council has voted to eliminate coups from the game for the time being. We had a meeting last Sunday and a lot of good things will be coming from that. We also redid the BV values starting today for some assets:

The weekend is here!

Here is what we have been up to in the Chaos March recently. There is a council of members that work alongside me to find ways to improve the event. Here are some of the things that have been done.

Coups were a way to attack any planet on the starmap with few restrictions. Capitol worlds were immune to this tactic. But there were a number of implementation issues that led to this feature being removed from the event. Currently factions may only attack a planet that neighbors one under their control. This feature may see a return to the event but in a heavily modified form.

The removal has led to a stockpile of points for all factions. Points are generated by planets each turn. There currently are espionage and intelligence points. These points may be merged into a single system in the future.

Rules were added that aim to balance the distribution of new players between teams. At least one member of the attacking faction must be present during a campaign. This can only be waived with the permission of the faction leader ahead of time.

TC games are called raids in the event. TSA raids were recently added. They last for 30 minutes. A score based system is used in place of tickets. The team with the higher score at the 0:00 time is the winner.

Raids sometimes disable repairs and money transfer between pilots. Only planets that have enough infrastructure enable these settings.

Turrets were originally turned on or off depending on the infrastructure. But this was changed to turrets always being enabled.

Raids are open to the public without requiring teamspeak. The drop modes require teamspeak for coordination purposes. Players may join at any time during raids. Teams are kept as balanced as possible.

Raids can now be called for by either team. So defenders can change a map to TC or TSA mode. The team must have enough points. Raids cannot happen on back to back maps. Raids cannot happen on map 5.

The battle value system assigns a ranking from 1-5 to all assets in the game. This helps to balance out games alongside the weight restriction. The values have been adjusted a few times since the start of the event. These values change both for balanced game play and to encourage use of rarely used variants.

Defense fleets are a group of 10 assets that are available for use on every planet defense for a faction. The assets are transferred from the attack fleet. New assets can be assigned only when something gets destroyed in battle. This system has helped to increase the strength of planet defenses.

The carrying asset rule specifies that the match ends once a team has no remaining mech or tank. Flying stuff and battle armor cannot be the last things alive for a match to continue. Recently a test was held to see how game play was impacted when everything alive allowed a match to continue. There is a possibility battle armor may become a “carrying” asset at some future time. But the rules have now gone back to only allowing mechs and tanks to carry. 

Warlord Kentax is working on a new “escort” game mode. It has been a lot of fun to test. Checkout more information about it here: http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20672.0.html

Some other small rules clarifications were also addressed.

The game server has been running without a password recently. Players are welcome to come check out the action at any point. Just ask for the current status before entering the battlefield.  Raids can be joined at any point in time. But the drops require players at the beginning.

Teamspeak is encouraged and required for drops. It is free to download at http://www.teamspeak.com/downloads . It is great if you have a microphone but it is not needed. Many players participate only using speakers. Our teamspeak server address is mwll.mwmaster.com . The game server shows up as ~SJ~ Chaos March|Altanta.US (hmm that is a type  8)

A lot of us are pubbing on funbocks and huntress for an hour or two before the organized stuff starts. So hop on during the weekends and you will probably find some games. Thanks to all the awesome volunteers that make this event possible. The  Living Legend Community is just the best! So come play with us and long live MWLL!

Oh right the normal updates :)

So here is you video of the week:

Welcome back pilots!
     We have old and new business this coming weekend in the league. First here is a crappy promo video: https://youtu.be/78LXR1nF_lw and another one: https://youtu.be/F6OzHBlafnM
Now the video of the week: https://youtu.be/m0YS0s2HKHI and a longer fight as bonus: https://youtu.be/CJaj83UyfyA

We are now playing public games between the drops. So drop by the server and ask what is going on.  Need teamspeak for the planet fights. Mwll.mwmaster.com is the address.

We need to finish off two planets:

Saturday

Battle   166   Battle for planet   Arboris   
Saiph Protectorate   attack   Arboris   from   Poznan
Map 6 (if needed)   TSA_Marhes   winner: TBD Raid

Then we finish:

Battle   167   Battle for planet   Capolla   
Duchy of Small   attack   Capolla   from   Epsilon Eridani
Planet defended by   Tikonov Task Force         
Map 4   TSA_Cobra02   winner:   Not played   
Map 5   TC_Inferno   winner:   Not played   
Map 6 (if needed)   MAP_NAME   winner:   Not played   

If we still have time a new campaign will start. Otherwise this leads off Sunday:

Battle   168   Battle for planet   Jonathan   
Capellan Commonality   attack   Jonathan   from   Ashkum
Planet defended by   Blakist         
Map 1   TSA_OutpostV2   winner:   Not played   
Map 2   TSA_Vista   winner:   Not played   
Map 3   TSA_Alshain   winner:   Not played   
Map 4   TSA_Underground   winner:   Not played   
Map 5   TC_Enkeladaus   winner:   Not played   

Should be action packed and busy this weekend.

Hello players!

It is a major holiday weekend in the USA. So our American player population is unknown this coming weekend. But we will have Chaos for you.

There are a few changes to note about the event. VTOLs, the Donar and Hawkmoth, will increase in weight from 25 to 30 tons. The Long Tom artillery will decrease from 95 tons to 65 tons. The money that planets generate each turn will decreased. The percentage has yet to be set.

Here is a promo video: https://youtu.be/ktrJfCvA-58
And your video of the week: https://youtu.be/4KsouifzuTM

Our action this weekend sees Tikonov Task Force fight to gain factory planet Poznan. The other campaign sees if the Saiph Protectorate can conquer planet Acamar. The schedule will depend on when and which players come to fight this weekend.

Warm up in the public games before Chaos starts. Or join us for the public games between the drops. Come by the teamspeak server to say hi or to take up arms for the drops. The address is mwll.mwmaster.com . We will try to launch the event at some point after 20:00 UTC .

Welcome to the arena,
   The weekend is here and we get to see what a champion looks like. Your video of the week takes place in the Broken Vista arena:

https://youtu.be/0Q4O2fgTX48 (spectate)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omVsPoMJiQY (attackers)

Chaos will be played on Sunday only at an undetermined time. But the arena calls so come by at one of the four quarterfinal times. Players simply need to be connected to the game server to participate. There will be a practice round or two before the qualifier for each weight class.  The last remaining 3 pilots from each weight class for each quarterfinal qualify for the semi final. Pilots may attempt to qualify in each weight class. But once they make the top 3 for a certain weight they will not count towards the top 3 in other quarterfinals in the same weight class. The top 3 winners from the semi finals qualify for the grand championship. The grand championship will be open class. Other mini events will take place as time allows. There will be an air, infantry, and possibly tank championship event.

Please note the Grand Championship will take place either Sunday or Monday. Leaning towards Sunday.

In a quick Chaos note, the economy has been cut by 30% starting next weekend.

It should be a fun weekend. Take it safe out there during the holiday and come play with us if you get some time. The teamspeak will be up if you want to come chat at mwll.mwmaster.com . It is not required for the arena event.

Sunday Chaos
Saiph Triumvirate attack something!
Chaos starts after the Grand Championship finishes.

Hello pilots,
   Your video of the week follows the action on TC Taiga from three different angles: https://viewsync.net/watch?v=Pw4JRRkwb00&t=14&v=WFO0cUjlofA&t=4&v=71eEG4eY8iM&t=4&autoplay=false

Click on each video to start buffering then hit the play button on the bottom.

Play resumes today to determine the fate of the capital planet Small World. Duchy of Small needs a single victory to close out the defense against the Blakists. The Capellans then attempt to regain some territory on planet Tunnah. Finally Saiph drops into action on Sunday if time remains.

So come on board early for the public games around 18:00 UTC. The organized action starts around 21:00 UTC. Come find us on the teamspeak server at mwll.mwmaster.com . Teamspeak not needed for the game breaks or for raids. Drop by and check in to see what is happening. Have a great weekend pilots!

It seems to be an unusual weekend beginning. It is a major holiday weekend in the states. Will it bring more players? Action begins around 18:00 UTC with the pubs and 21:00 for Chaos. Come chat with us at teamspeak server mwll.mwmaster.com . The Threev3 event will continue this weekend at some point. There are some new rules changes listed in detail at the bottom.

24 players on TC Towne is your video of the week:

Battle   195   Battle for Planet   Algot   
Saiph Triumvirate   attack   Algot   from   Pleione
Planet defended by   Duchy of Small         
Map 1   Cobra - TSA - V02   winner:      
Map 2   Forest Valley - TSA - V2   winner:      
Map 3   Kagoshima - TC   winner:      
Map 4   River - TSA   winner:      
Map 5   Dam - TC - V006   winner:      
Map 6 (if needed)   MAP_NAME   winner:      
            
Planet is successfully   Not played   Planet belongs to   Neutral   
Battle 196 Turn 17 begins

New rules summary:

Coups, or the ability to attack the planet beyond your normal attack lines, have returned in a new format.  Effectively, faction leaders can now attack the non capital planets that are at least two jumps away.
All flying assets may now refill ammo at the runway without the need for an APC.
Raids are now 40 minutes long.
Faction leaders now have an opportunity to block a raid.  But a limit of one block for each team in a campaign ensures that we still have a variety of game play. 
Moving forward mercenaries will receive a universal benefit of -1 battle value.  As an example, the value of the Owens D is three and a mercenary Owens D has a value of two.
Finally, similar to the raid block, faction leaders will have an opportunity to prevent airpower on one map per campaign.

Hello again pilots!
   Chaos March invades the late nite this coming weekend.  A special edition FRIDAY campaign will start after the public games end. This will be a very late start compared to normal weeks. Saturday continues the fun at these late hours. I expect the Saturday campaign to begin around 4-5 hours later than the normal start time. The event returns to the normal schedule on Sunday at 20:00 UTC. So drop by anytime this weekend with every single one of your friends. Fill up Funbocks and Huntress for all you can eat public games. Then stick around for the late nite shift trying to conquer planets! Come coordinate with your teammates or trash talk your opponents at teamspeak mwll.mekmaster.com .

So here is your video of the week:
20 player battle on Glory:

Greetings pilots!
   Just a reminder that Saturday's Chaos March starts at a special time late at night. Expect it to be around 8 pm Eastern standard time. Chaos resumes its normal schedule on Sunday. Next week is Chaos March Week. More details coming on Sunday but set aside your schedules- we have got a lot of planets to conquer next week at all hours of the day. See the older post for the video of the week.

Saiph attacks on Saturday night. Capellans attack Sunday.
A special thanks to the pilots who came and fought in the middle of the night this Friday!

Long live living legends!

Welcome to the weekend warriors!
    Chaos March returns today at 20:00 UTC . Players can participate by joining teamspeak server, mwll.mekmaster.com (199.233.247.149:9987), and parking in the Ready Room channel.  Server password will be handed out close to game time. Custom maps will be used so consider downloading the map packs. The latest version of each map available in the repository makes up the pack. Unzip then copy all the folders to the right directory.  The actual maps we are using today are at the bottom of the post. Players please remember that daylight savings time has ended. Faction leaders note that a cbill limit replaces the BV system for this weekend. Mercenary units will have a 20% lower cost. Planets will set cbill limits based upon their wealth. A huge thanks to theClaw and Star Wraith for updating the drop calculators. The event will launch some new features in coming weeks. Event details can be found in the first post of this thread. But for now grab that headset and meet up for some league action!

Happy Holidays Warriors!
    The calendar lands just right this year to provide some interesting scheduling for this weekend. We play Today, Friday 23 December, at 23:00 UTC (4 CST) or earlier. Tomorrow, 24 December, we might play. I will be around but I won't set any start time due to the holiday. We are off on 25 December! So, drop by for Chaos (or other organized gameplay). If we hit 8 we shift to Chaos. Otherwise open drop night? Something... anyhow enjoy your time off and don't hog all the cookies!

This weekend continues with our special holiday hours. Come by today, FRIDAY, for Chaos starting around 21:00 UTC (4 pm Central). The Tikonov Task Force, down to just 2 planets, tries to capture neutral planet Chesterton. Saturday the fights continue early to avoid conflicting with those New Years Eve parties. Deliver 8 pilots and we can start but gunning for about 19:00 UTC . Duchy of Small go after planet Ingress or Liao. Meet us at teamspeak servers mwll.mekmaster.com and wr-clan.no-ip.org. Game servers will be Chaos March Atlanta and Sxooters 12VR.

Come for the Robots, Smile for the Cameras, Dodge Incoming Fire

Welcome back pilots!

This weekend sees the Duchy of Small on planet Ruchbah, the Blakists on an undisclosed planet, and lots of other action. See the interesting battle strategy taken on TSA Alsahin from last weekend: https://youtu.be/yD50Ki4YPfI  But first Saiph tries to finish off Capellan planet Tunnah leading 2-1. A single victory awards the planet to Saiph.

Saturday matches may be covered live by a news crew.  Check back for updates to this post as they stream in. Play in the event with teamspeak client pointed towards server mwll.mekmaster.com in the ready room channel.

Welcome back players,
   Once more it is the weekend which means time for more organized gameplay. First, enjoy this epic 28 player battle on Northwind from last weekend:

https://youtu.be/uqMaVAPaELU (original replay needed one, attackers)
https://youtu.be/g-mLWUHdyB0 (replay, defenders, super awesome video)
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/120030691 (attackers)

Action comes to you live at 21:00 UTC both Saturday and Sunday. Only requirement for play is teamspeak client pointed at ready room channel on server mwll.mekmaster.com. It is a Saiph kind of weekend as the Triumvirate defend planet Almach Saturday and attack planet Liao on Sunday. The Capellan Commonality leads the Saturday attack. There is nobody leading the defense on Sunday except a bunch of random factionless people. The Tikonov Task Force stands by with a ready campaign for overflow. Lastly, we begin all the Chaos with the decisive map 6, TC Urban Jungle, to decide planet Deneb Kaitos between the Blakists and the Duchy of Small.

So lots of moving pieces. But everything is ready to go for organized mech action. Players are free to come and go as they please. Just try to stay put if you are in the middle of a drop. Drop by, get in a mech, and see if you can kill the entire enemy team without any assistance. Or more likely die within the first 20 seconds of the battle…. Long live MWLL!

Chaos Players!
Changes are coming. But first we must have some spring cleaning. We have no less than four campaigns to get through this weekend. That is a lof of planets! So let's get right into it:

The rare lanner rush against Wolverines Rebirth!

Saiph looks to take down the political coup causing issues on planet Liao. Duchy of Small tries to stay relevant by launching the kitchen sink at factory world Tigress. Tikonov Task Force tries to triple their planet count on Styk. Blakists defend Tigress while Saiph defends Styk. There is a secret campaign somewhere in there as well.

4.15a - Emergent factions

Should a Coup be successful,
A new faction will be created on the planet. The Defense Garrison that existed on the planet at the time of the coup becomes the Attack Fleet of the new planet. For as long as the faction holds only that single planet their Attack Fleet will also function as their Garrison. In the following turn the faction will receive the planets benefits normally, including any Intel/Esp points or Merc groups/Factory benefits. They are given the planets base economy per turn in money every turn they own the planet.
If they successfully attack a neighboring planet and then own two planets, Garrisons are generated for both planets. From their they will function normally as their own faction

4.16a - Gambit

Should two factions attack each other’s opposing planets from the same jump route, then a Gambit will take place. A Gambit is battle fought on Neutral Ground. The game is a Best of Seven game. No Raids. Only attack fleets may be used, no Mercenaries or Defense fleet assets may be used. A coin will be flipped. The winner of the flip gets to choose the first map and their spawn side. The other team will get their pick of map and side on the next map. This will go back and forth until the match is decided. Both teams must agree to the gambit. Each team will inform the referee of their intention to go ahead or pull out of the Gambit independently without informing the other team of their intentions (the two teams must be blind to each other’s feelings on the matter). If one team does not agree they will forfeit their attack for that turn and the team that did not backout will commence their declared attack as normal. If both teams wish to backout then a coin will be flipped to determine whose attack will commence as normal and both teams will be charged X Intel points.


Manufacturer contracts:
Teams purchase an entire pack of any one asset using the pack system. This represents bulk contracts with manufacturers and provide appropriate discounts so long as the team owns the appropriate factory to generate discounts. All Clan tech is imported but via trade small discounts are provided.
Each team starts with five factories as follows:

Manufacturer Discounts  IS/Clan
Light
Medium
Heavy
Assault
Vehicles
33%/15%
20%/10%
15%/8%
10%/5%
20%/10%
Discounts of the same type do not stack.

Prices are also affected by Backorder: A 300% modifier for every subsequent purchase of the same pack. The modifier decreases to 150% if one or fewer packs of the mech are ordered on the next turn. The price reverts to normal if multiple packs are not purchased for two straight turns.  

Black Market
In the Black Market, ALL variants are ALWAYS available. Teams can pick any variant they wish and purchase for the cost of the asset + a BV modifier + a fee.

BV modifiers are as follows:
BV1-2= -10%, BV3-4= +0% BV5-6= +10%, BV7-8= +20%, BV-9-10= +30%

The transaction fee is 15% of the purchase. Each subsequent purchase of the same variant in the same turn results in an additional 50% fee. These fees can be reduced by holding depot worlds.
Work begins on the new map rotation this weekend. Come play with us or help out with the changes at mwll.mekmaster.com teamspeak! More to add later.

Don't include TC_Knolls. Worst map ever created (it's a Crysis Wars map with Mech Factories and Repair Bays slapped on it...).

Chaos Jobs Board: Help Make Sectors 3 and 4
Update: A quarter of the way done! Keep it up!

There are 60 planets that need 5 maps for each of the new sectors. Information is in this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1E8znO9bhp7VF16mRl3sVoZBx2gggiRNZSCK4RgfxzeA/edit?usp=sharing
Planets were given environments to choose maps. Possible emphasis on inputting existing maps that are not often in sector 1 or 2. Sheet is editable anyone with time have at it! Input maps for the planet in sector 3 and 4 on the far right of the spreadsheet. Chaos team will meet next week to finish the job. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Weekend!
    Our volunteers are so cool. Thanks to them all for finishing the map rotation. Each Chaos March planet now has four distinct areas to attack. We are about three quarters done with the rulebook update. We will meet again on Sunday to finish it. Saiph Triumvirate will play for planet Tunnah today. Duchy of Small will attack something to end the night. We played two raids at once yesterday. I am still working on scoring that map. Come join us for fun at mwll.mekmaster.com teamspeak. Action begins later today at 20:00 UTC (2pm CST). Here is the video of the week while you wait: https://youtu.be/eUqZSUbTyx8

Welcome back warriors!
    Chaos March comes to you later today with Duchy of Small struggling for survival. Their single remaining planet puts them near extinction. Meanwhile, the Blaksit forces have kept their plans closely guarded. Tikonov Task Force also remains a mystery. The revised rules will be in force starting today. Review them at this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qhj5qLQ51o1uWGp5dvH6gzfnTahIioBfTaSDclMKpKU/edit?usp=sharing

A special FRIDAY edition will be held on 14 April. The start time is being finalized. Drop by for our "big" meeting 15 April at 20:00 UTC to discuss all event related items. Come for the fun this Saturday and Sunday. Meet up at teamspeak server mwll.mekmaster.com for the play by play.

I'd like to thank you know whom for the selflessly dedicated and fantastic effort! (which organizing Chaos March always been!:-)
Phlegeton and Desert Sun were awesome picks, imho.

But herein lies the rub and let me rub some into it.

The lists both for Clan and IS were hardlocked all the way (I assume). And so the last drop of Saturdays CM

Saiph defense of Pleione versus Tikonov, TC Inferno
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnUCE6d9qsI

Like 2 mins before the start Saiphs suggested having no air assets (if Im not mistaken?). So maybe they had plenty of AA stuff themselves and it was some kind of strategic bluff? (I'm seeing some Oros in that video, havent seen their actual setup for that fight, so can't tell, maybe!)

And so we roll into this one with 3 partisans = rac2 + rac5 mxpl + 2 dssrm-6. So that's only 50 tons of pure AA and we know that there wont be no AA and we can't change it. Erm, ok...

But the ensuing hilariousness of 3 partisans (+ G one) bumping into each other and the demo and other mechs within the base entrance trying to somehow attack IS (Saiphs) hiding behind buildings in the base - that was pure :'(

Hello Council Members and Warriors!
   Chaos March will be played this weekend! But the Saturday edition becomes Saturday NIGHT edition! There is the huge meeting at 20:00 UTC and will last several hours. Chaos will begin late that night. My best guess is 8 PM Central Standard Time. 01:00 UTC Sunday. But that will depend on how long the meeting takes. Sunday is at regular time. Everyone is welcome to the meeting on teamspeak mwll.mekmaster.com Chaos March Meeting Channel.

The council has officially approved the publication of version 3.3 of the Chaos March Rulebook. There were some proposals that did not make the cut in time. The council will take a vote in the coming weeks to address those. A huge thanks to {12VR} Warlord Kentax, =KOS= Invictus, [W-R] Gnomeking, and the Chaos March Council for getting this project done.

Chaos both days this weekend. Teamspeak should be up. If not assemble at wr-clan.no-ip.org teamspeak server around 20:00 UTC. I ask that Burner fire up the WR game server just in case we need it. Special plans for the upcoming 3 year anniversary are in the works. Note! Likely gone for Chaos Saturday August 26. If there is anything held it will be "special edition". Note! Possible Chaos WEDNESDAY in prime time August 23. A council vote is coming soon. Yet another meeting is coming around September 9.

Faction leaders bug me about testing the new order forms as we get them ready. Also bug me about improving communications and strengthening faction teams. We are headed back to our regular pace starting September 10!
