Black Widow Company Veteran Mercs take 7th place in Smoke Jaguar Clan!

Three weeks before the Third Battle of Tukayyid, MWO BWC Veteran Mercs took a contract with the Smoke Jaguar Clan.
With only a days notice to prepare for Battle and as swiftly as the Event started, the Third Battle of Tukayyid has now ended.

The Clans have taken Planet Tukayyid from the Inner Sphere.

Battle of Tukayyid Participant / 1st Most Valuable Faction / Tukayyid Clan Victory

The year is 3052, the place is the Planet Tukayyid. With great loss and the destruction of Clan 'Mechs numbering in the tens of thousands combined, Clan Smoke Jaguar has shown to be victorious, now ranking 1st of the Most Valuable Factions. BWC Veteran Mercs were among the first to sign with Smoke Jaguar and have finished in 7th place within the Smoke Jaguar Clan, being under contract to protect and defend them at any cost. BWC has been awarded in game Banners with that same title and honor. By comparing the final scores to the other Clans and Houses, BWC would have come in 3rd 4th or 5th in those Factions had they been under contract to them. Half way through the 10 days of the event BWC was fluctuating between 7th and 12th place within Smoke Jaguar. But, they were also holding their own at 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th compared to the scores of other Factions at that time. Record numbers of BWC Veteran Mercs responded to the call for Battle, including several past BWC members that joined in to fight along side them. BWC stood against many other top ranked and first place Units within the Inner Sphere and were victorious against them in many battles. BWC conducted 21 Operations in support of the ten day long Epic Op resulting in a 27-24 record for Invasion matches and a 20-14 record in scouting mode.

Incoming Messages from Piddles, MWO RSM:
Faction Warfare hasn't been something that has held much interest across the unit or a game mode that we've experienced much success in over the last year. I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout and commitment our members showed throughout the event. The teamwork and focus displayed throughout all the matches reminded me of why I joined BWC in the first place and the in-game display encouraged new recruits to apply and some older members to return to the game.

The event showed that our membership still has the interest in the game and the capability to surge for events they find worthwhile and rewarding. Our responsibility now is to try find ways to inspire the same level of activity and enjoyment without the benefits of the in-game rewards. However, as the event went on it also highlighted our need to find additional support to schedule and conduct Operations and develop Drop Leaders. We did get a few people posting operations on their own but the bulk of action was scheduled and run by the same people that selflessly shoulder most of the burden in MWO and towards the end of a high activity week the strain began to affect our capability a bit.

I am happy with our win-loss record, even though it was mostly against unorganized PUGs. Faction Warfare is a game mode we've struggled with in the past. We still have room for improvement, of course, and the event helped identify things to focus on to get there. Overall I am proud of BWC for its efforts and accomplishments and see us continuing to rise in MWO.

Where we are, with scores & comparisons !

Currently our score is 691, putting us in 8th place of Smoke Jaguar (no small feat considering how many other units switched to Smoke Jaguar at the start, and even more joined earlier this week. Which caused us to move down ladder but we climbed back up!)

Who are we out scoring :
We beat the second place for Clan wolf.
We beat the 6th place for Ghost Bear
We beat 6th place for Jade Falcon
We beat 5th place for Liao
We beat 3rd place for Davion (HHoD is #1 there with a 2000 score, FYI)
We beat the 1st place for Kurita
We beat 1st place for F.R.R.
We beat 5th place for Stiener
We beat 3rd place for Marik

Fucking amazing job.

I sat down the other day and saw a dozen or so of you folks in op channels, and remembered that you all had an epic op going on with the new Tuka-whatever thing going on and thought "Well, hell, I might as well reinstall and pop in for a second, see what's up." I got steam figured, reset my password 'cause I had NO idea what it was, and jumped in.

Immediately I was dropped into match by a welcoming group of folks who had their shit together, and were completely willing and even HAPPY to have another person along for the drop. We went on to beat the ever-living crap out of the bad guys, and it was obvious we won because our team was organized, listening to calls, and knew their shit. I can honestly say it was some of the most fun I had had in months while gaming, and I know it was because of the people I was playing with, not the game mechanics or because it was some new and shiny AAA title.

And you know what? I thought it was a fluke, I thought, well, it was just a good time to jump in, nothing big, but no, you all did it twice more on the same day. That evening I sat down and saw a group of you and sat in, listening to Comms and hearing the support you gave each other. Everyone had their serious-mode hats on for OP time, and STILL you all were laughing, having a good time, and kicking SERIOUS metal-clad ass. I jumped into game and got in with your third drop and we won that one too, it was a bit of a struggle, but drop lead pulled off some great calls, and everyone worked together to make shit go boom.

I just wanted to say, your effort in making MWO a supremely welcoming place has been noticed, you all (emphasis HPD) make BWC a better place to be a gamer.

Well done, keep it up.

Just wanted to say

Just wanted to tell you guys that the turn out, the dedication and the effort you guys have been putting into the PGI event ; And supporting your MWO Brothers & Sisters is magnificent. Really, you guys have impressed me. Since Friday night, we have had an almost factory-shift like turn out and play.

Almost 3 weeks ago now, we took the Smoke Jaguar Contract. The decision was based around the fact they had a 30% contract bonus, and no other Merc units were currently playing under that Clan. When the Battle of Tukiyyid began, it was just us. Before Friday night was over Smoke Jaguar had become one of the most staffed Clans in the event. In other words, the competition to be recognized under Smoke Jaguar went from guaranteed to cut-throat over night.

Keep this in mind because it means we are competing against a lot of people under S.J. A lot of people...

And despite the odds, BWC has maintained a visible presence on the S.J. Leaderboards ! While we have slipped here and there overall BWC has maintained a top ten position for the last 4 day cycles and including this morning. As I type this we are currently #9 in the event. Competing against Units like -SA- and Federation 420 Mercs.

I also want to give a pat on the back for how damn well we're doing in Faction Warfare over all. I don't like to admit it, but we were losing our edge and began slipping in the quality and ability of our team. That's over. I'm seeing effort, I'm seeing dedication, I'm seeing people who have really stepped up their game and try. TRY ! We won't win every match, every time but you guys are giving 110% and I'm proud of it!

Last night BWC went head to head on Boreal against HHoD. They are a very fine Unit with a lot of skill. We fought them to a stand-still with a lead in kill-counts while carrying two PUGs. Through-out the drop we maintained a 5 or better kill lead on HHoD, and ran the defense clock down to 6 minutes left. At the end, a well orchestrated light rush was able to drop the generator while we dropped in new mechs.

Final score was 43 to 46, and I'm not ashamed of that.

You guys are doing good, and you deserve to hear it. Keep it up.

The Black Widow Company Moves to Nullsec 0.0 on May 18!

BWC's EVE Online Corporation has been planning logistics and preparing for an epic move from the Corporation’s previous base in the lowsec system of Thelan, to their new home in EVE Online’s Nullsec space. Nullsec is what players call the area of space that is not patrolled by the game’s NPC police, CONCORD - and players are free to engage each other at will. This area of space can sometimes be the most dangerous, but with that risk comes great reward. Miners will have an infinite supply of the most valuable ores that the game can offer, combat PVE pilots will have a long list of pirate sites to warp in and clear out, and exploration pilots will have an entire constellation of signatures, anomalies, and wormholes to explore. The corporation will be joining a player alliance called FUBAR, a large Nullsec alliance which is allied with EVE heavyweight alliance Fidelas Constans. Black Widow Company will be entering in the alliance as a full member of FUBAR, with all the perks and requirements that come with it. The move is planned to begin on May 18th.

Previously, BWC tried to stake its claim in Lowsec, an area of EVE Online space that has a reputation of being the stomping grounds of pirates and lone wolves looking for a quick kill. The reputation is correct, and BWC had quite an interesting debut into the game. In true EVE fashion, many BWC players learned through trial by fire - losing ships, and then coming back with a new one. Shortly after our introduction in lowsec system Taff, we joined a Lowsec Pirate Alliance called It Burns when I PVP through contacts within the corporation. Activity stagnated, as much of their corp’s membership were industrial players - and anyone who has played EVE any significant amount of time knows that Lowsec is not the most friendly place for miners. However, BWC’s PVP pilots flourished, participating in many intense fleet engagements.

Links to some of the kills made by BWC members can be found here:

This move is part of a larger reorganization of BWC’s involvement in EVE Online. The previous OIC of the Company, Technique, recently stepped down and is being replaced by Tarlo7. Tarlo, along with Xzenocrimzie and Hornet1314 have had their noses to the grindstone organizing the logistics required to make such a significant move. The team has overhauled leadership organization and corp logistics, made a set of shiny new doctrine ships, and set in place an ore buyback and manufacturing plan to build capital ships for the alliance. The team is also in the midst of writing a comprehensive training plan for new pilots and veteran pilots alike, to make sure that the process of learning the game is as quick and pain free as possible. For a game such as EVE Online, this is no easy task. The game has over 450 unique ships and over 4,000 unique modules that can be fitted to them. EVE Online has been named, whether lovingly or disparagingly, the most difficult MMO to play - often joked that EVE does not have a learning curve, but a learning cliff. Nonethless, BWC hopes to have a program in place that will help players new to the game to join in on the fun as quickly as possible.

BWC’s focus after arriving in Nullsec will be to establish a core of industry inclined players in order to manufacture many of the ships and tools that the corporation will require such as combat ships and industrial command ships. When we’ve settled in, members will be free to make in game currency in whatever manner they prefer - whether it’s mining, ratting, or PI. For those that are more PvP oriented, BWC is expected to participate in Alliance deployments and fleets - which there will be plenty of. FUBAR is currently engaged with Test Alliance Please Ignore in friendly border skirmishes, however the idea of a full deployment is not far out of the question.

BWC’s move to Nullsec is an excellent opportunity to get involved in the meat of EVE Online, and the part of the game that makes it truly special. Many games allow you to have guild holds or strongholds where you can meet up. In EVE Online, our corporation will own a real section of space, unique from all the others, and not instanced off or private. Its benefits and its responsibilities will be ours to bear, and that is a position that not many corporations ever find themselves in. The best opportunity to join in on what EVE Online has to offer is quickly coming upon you. If you played EVE with us while we were in Taff, or have never played the game before with BWC - now is the time.

Add the game to your jacket, and read the EVE Online section on our forums for more information, or approach Tarlo7, Xzenocrimzie, Hornet1314, or Facefisted.
