Welcome to the Free Worlds League community website.
This site represents the the single largest group of House Marik players within MechWarrior Online. It is a collection of players and units who have joined in solidarity for the glory of the FWLM. Here, you will find hundreds of players with similar interests. Some players have been loyal to Free Worlds League for years, even decades. Some have pledged their allegiance to House Marik due to the community that has been built up since the beginning of MWO closed beta.
FWLM Information and Application:
If you want to take your first step into the most powerful and organized faction of the Inner Sphere, you can fill out this application form. It will be evaluated and approved within 24 hours after submission. If you want to know more about the history and canon of the Free Worlds League, there are a few sources available such as Sarna, MWO Wiki and Battletech.com. There are members here that will follow the same types of inner politics that are canon to the Battletech/MechWarrior universe. While this adds flavor to the game experience, this is not required for belonging to the House Marik community.
The forums are a great source of information. Members are free to post questions and find answers about House Marik, house units, mech builds, tactics and virtually everything besides. The site is active with dedicated members who have as much enthusiasm about the universe and the game as anybody else. We have information on Introductions, General discussions and Unit Activities.
FWLM Active Units:
The Free Worlds League Military (FWLM) encompasses several House Military Units. These Units are the backbone of the FWLM community. Each FWLM unit is unique, and incorporates different policies and play-styles. You can find the list of current active units and contact information here. Although we encourage players to find a unit they feel best fits their play-style , unit membership is not a requirement of the community. It is however; required that your loyalty be first to the FWLM.
FWLM Private TeamSpeak 3 Server:
The FWLM incorporates a private TeamSpeak server. This is where you would find most of the community when playing MWO. Here you can speak to players and Unit Commanders personally. You will find all players on the server welcoming and helpful. All players who log in will be abiding by a community Code of Conduct. This CoC assures that all players have a positive experience. Once your application is approved, you will have access to the information for our TeamSpeak server. If you have any questions, please contact any of us, we will be glad to help.The FWLM is united by many military units. We work together through our unique skill-sets and play-styles As a result, the Inner Sphere will see the true glory of faction warfare as demonstrated through the power of the Free Worlds League.
Queue Info changes - This represents further refinements to the Planet Info and Lobby screens to more clearly show players relevant queue information. For instance you will be able to see if all the current 15 zones are already being fought over and if there are additional strike teams queued up beyond that. This will allow a unit to better determine if they should also queue up or look to a different planet since they may not currently be needed or fully utilized on the initial planet. This represents ongoing changes to improve player information.
Released Feb 3rd patch. Counter Attacks - When defending territory that you have taken as an attacker you will no longer play invasion game move but a new one were calling Counter attack. In this game mode the gates are already open, the turrets are not present and the generators including the Omega are offline. Teams will engage in a Skirmish game match to hold the territory.
Win conditions are to destroy the entire enemy team as well as to take out the enemy team’s mobile field base. In an auto win situation the win the condition will be to destroy the mobile field base.
New CW map - The third Community Warfare map which is themed after Canyon networks themed map is ready for release players should expect some changes via patches after it gets live population testing
Loyalty Points - The work to properly reward loyalty point packages to players is now complete. This means the complete granting of the bundles first shown to players prior to the release of CW which contains everything from Cbills, MC, Mech bays, Faction cockpit items and Titles.
It should also be noted that this also means properly functioning in game title display for all past and new titles. The titles are selected in the front end UI and will display in game.
New Champion mech - New Banshee 3M champion.
Frame rate increase - We are expecting a noticeable frame rate increase with one change that was made; we will be looking post patch to analyze the amount of improvement.
Faction Chat - Global faction chat with proper turn on and off, block and CSR tracking. If this becomes too much of a problem socially we are prepared to remove it, but our hope is it will become an extremely valuable feature.
Released Feb 17th patch. VOIP - The long awaited VOIP functionality using the integrated team speak SDK. You will be able to turn this feature on or off as well as to mute and unmute players. Upon release this will be restricted to team chat, not smaller subsets. This is also still due for some technical testing as to the impact if any on game play due to the increased network traffic, so there is a chance it will be delayed if those tests perform poorly.
First Resistance mech's - February see's the release of the Panther and Enforcer battlemech's from the resistance pack to all those who have pre-ordered.
Those items I feel represents an excellent amount of content for the month of February and I look forward to releasing each one.
One future item that I feel is worth mentioning is new Looking For Group functionality that we hope to release in March. This will allow players to browse a list of players that are LFG, add themselves to the list. As well groups will be able to fill up their groups using this window and also set themselves to open group status to allow others to join in.
Yesterday we should leave Aldebaran defendless so that we can drop again on it today ? Dont you guys see there is a line of attack algorithm starting from terra to southeast ? Every planet west of the line need to be conquered till we can move on....
