In anticipation of the Galactic Strongholds release later in August, the epic operation “That’s No Moon” was held to raise funds for a guild flagship. Huge thanks to those members who participated and donated, the operation was a resounding success with in excess of 80 million credits being raised! (more…)
In the grim darkness of the not so far future, there will be only war… Eternal Crusade has launched their pre-order Founder Program!
Victory is not a thing for a single warrior to claim, but the result of the fury of armies. Join your Battle Brothers in BWC, as we dive into the shifting front-lines and crush our foes by cutting off supply lines, laying siege to walled fortresses and striking deep into the heart of enemy territory.

We have some new mechs coming in, MechWarriors, but as we all know, they’re going to be a little different from what we have now. We’re looking at Clan Omnimechs here, and they could prove to be game changers. At the very least, they’re going to shake things up.
Omnimechs won’t quite be true Omnis as per Tabletop Battletech rules, but will still have a different feel from battlemechs. Their engines (as of last update) are still fixed as to type (standard or extra light) and rating, as well as the presence or absence of all ‘upgrades’ (Ferro-fibrous armor, Endo Steel structure, Artemis FCS, double heat sinks). But unlike tabletop, it looks like the amount of armor can be adjusted. They will also have several permanently placed pieces of equipment, be they heat sinks, jump jets, MASC, or the occasional weapon.
So for all the restrictions, what are the advantages? The real potential advantages lie not so much in the ‘mechs themselves, but in the new weapons that come with them. (more…)
From extravagant celebrations on Nar Shaddaa to arena pit fights, prove your superior wealth and power in Game Update 2.8: Spoils of War! Going on NOW through August 19th.

Join us July 4th – 6th for an Epic Operation: That’s No Moon, and help us raise funds for a Guild Flagship! There will be plenty of action including Kuat Drive Yard (KDY) Runs, PvP Op Runs, Galactic Starfighter Operations, and Dailies.
It’s finally here! The moment we’ve all been waiting for patiently since December: Arena Commander has launched! Black Widow Company members have been zealously playing the Dogfighting Module since it came out this past Wednesday, and you can join them in the TeamSpeak Star Citizen lobby for the fun.
To celebrate the release, our own SpawnoChaos will be holding a 24-hour Arena Commander Launch party this weekend, starting at 10 AM EDT (10:00 OpServ) on 07JUN and going until 10 AM EDT the next day. Currently, the base hornet, the 300i, and the Aurora are available for use, so if you bought an Aurora only or an Aurora along with a whole collection of ships, it’s a great time to start on the path to becoming a master pilot.
To download the Dogfighting Module, simply update your current Hangar Module, or go to the Star Citizen download page.
Tune in tonight, Monday, 02JUN at 10PM EDT (22:00 OpServ) and support your fellow BWC members for WarwitchTV’s first eSports broadcast of Titanfall. Black Widow Company will be competing against =VX9= for a friendly scrim in 5v5. Phr33ky and Warwitch will shoutcast the match, which will include multiple game modes.
Since there’s no Spectator mode currently, each caster will be on one of the teams to commentate. More details can be found by clicking here. So hop into the TeamSpeak Twitch Theatre for the match, and while we encourage you to root for the BWC team, it’s probably in your best interest not to do so by barging into their comms channel. That’s an easy way to get a rocket fired at your face.
We’re moving on from the practice rounds, cupcake. Tonight at 12:01 AM PDT (03:01 OpServ) the real battle for Nexus begins with Headstart Access. Wildstar has been cleared for recruitment, so start tagging as many new friends as you can rely on and send ‘em our way. And if you’re reading this and not currently a member of a gaming outfit with over a decade of experience that emphasizes a cross-game community, you should definitely look into joining today.
Even if you’re only picking up Wildstar right now, we have plenty of members waiting for the launch tonight, so hop on TeamSpeak and find us in a channel to chat, party, or ask for help—several members played closed and open beta extensively. BWC members, if you want more information, you should go to this forum. Official launch is 03JUNE, so join us then if you haven’t yet purchased the game.
Buckle in and brew your coffee: It’s time to take Nexus for the Exiles.
Black Widow Company and BattleGroup Mattherson promised to be out in force this past weekend, and we were true to our word. We now have some preliminary numbers to show you for the overall results of the Fallen Heroes Charity Alert.
All three factions on Mattherson stepped up to contribute to this awesome cause, and none of them disappointed. For the NC faction, Clan Magnus Legio [CML] donated an (awesome) total of $1,337. Black Widow Company [BWC] collected funds through our official charity, Play To Give Back™, from primarily BWC members, raising $1,500.
Play To Give Back™ will continue collecting donations for the Fallen Heroes Charity alert for one more week, so if you still want to donate, you can do so by clicking “Donate” on the PTGB™ website. Simply indicate in “Add special instructions to the seller:” on the PayPal donation page that you wish your donation to go towards either the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund or the International Rescue Committee.
And now, for the big tally and the funds collected by the CrowdRise page. (more…)
As a veteran founded, owned, and operated military-style gaming outfit, we’re anxiously awaiting the start of the Memorial Day Weekend charity event. Our veteran and active-duty members, acutely aware of the meaning of this US national holiday, proudly participate in it while also having a blast with friends, as has been the case in all of our marathon operations.
Our civilian members understand the weight of the holiday, as well. Many have brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, or sons who have risen to the call of duty, and membership in Black Widow Company gives us new brothers and sisters to call our own.
Intrepid Fallen Heroes provides care for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress or from Traumatic Brain Injury. The International Rescue Committee aids parts of the world hit by crisis, providing for basic needs and leaving only when they’ve rebuilt and restored safety to the area.
In recognition of these excellent causes, Black Widow Company, in conjunction with BattleGroup Mattherson and Nightmare Battalion, intend to celebrate Memorial Day all weekend with a 72-hour gaming marathon and fundraiser combined. (more…)
Name Reservation Page Here
Wildstar’s Open Beta has been in full swing since 8MAY, but the biggest question on everyone’s mind revolves around name reservations. We’ve known the date for awhile (13MAY), but now we finally know the time, so grab your keyboards and limber up your typing fingers.
After several days of anxiously awaiting further details concerning Wildstar’s name reservation plans, Carbine has announced the time on Wildstar’s official forums. Wildstar name reservations will begin at 11 AM PDT (14:00 OpServ) 13MAY, tomorrow. They will continue until 23MAY at 11:59 AM PDT, at which point the window of opportunity to use your name reservation pre-order perk will be gone.
Names reserved will be available to each person until 14 days after official launch, until 17JUN. When 17JUN arrives, any names that have not been claimed will be released and up for grabs again.
EDIT: Name Reservations are now live! The link at the top of this post is for people in the NA region. Go here if you’re in Europe. If the Reserve or Login buttons do not work for you, it seems that spam clicking them will eventually cause the desired pop-up to appear. Good luck!
