This is my other addiction. The game...Mech Commander. It is a stategy game that requires a lot of forethought and planning before each mission and is playable online by various providers. My personal favorite and the place you will find me at most of the time is on MPlayer.

In this game you are put in command of a squadron of up to 12 mechs of which you have to buy, buy and place the pilots in them, Modify their weapon payloads if you wish, and command your squadron through each mission trying to meet the mission objectives.

For your online gaming, You can just go in and play for fun or you can join one of the many units on the web by visiting a place like Starlance. I am in the Wild Dragons unit which is classified as a Mercenary Unit.


The Raven is a 35 ton Light Mech that can move at 27 meters per second and has a jump distance of 100 meters. It is usually used as a scout mech or due to it's ability to carry Clan active probes, ECM suite, and long range sensors...which gives the Inner Sphere warriors some of the Clan Technology at their disposal.

The Vulture is a 60 ton heavy mech that can move at 24 meters per second and has a jump distance of 83 meters. It boasts a fairly good weapon payload for it's speed.

The Thor is a 70 ton Heavy Mech that can move at 24 meters per second and has a jump distance of 83 meters. If you arrange a lot of these mechs together and are in a short range battle, you are usually in pretty good shape.

The Mad Cat is a 75 ton Heavy Mech that can move at 24 meters per second and has a jump distance of 83 meters. This is an excellent Mech in most cases. it can carry a large amount of firepower while still being able to move reasonably fast and has a very good armor structure as well.

The Masakari is the largest of the Clan mechs and labeled as an Assault Class weighing in at 85 tons. It's speed is somewhat sluggish though at a mere 18 meters per second and it's jump distance is 67 meters. However, this mech is about an even match for the Inner Sphere's Atlas which is 15 tons heavier and a bit slower. This Mech with the right pilot can stand back and pound the enemy from long range.
