Interstellar News Network Update (10/15)
« on: October 10, 2015, 12:31:58 PM »
Below is a summary of NBT changes starting from October 1st:


Gameplay Changes
  • The map Caustic Valley is currently banned reportedly due to drunken crews who mistakenly/intentionally fire on their own forces.
  • Want great deals on mechs you don't build or can't buy? Visit the Black Market! The Black Market now contains the following: Black Knights, Crabs, CDA-3Fs, WVR-7Ds, ZEU-9S2, and Hero Mechs. Brian Cache Star League vintage IS mechs are available to the Clans to purchase on their BM in lesser quantities.
  • The Outworld Wastes have been added to the Starmap and the League in preparation for eventual pirate use. The release date on Pirate factions is still to be announced, but when they do come into the league they'll have better places to hide than in leagues of yore.

Faction Updates
  • Clan Ghost Bear is now played by Clan Ghost Bear International
  • The Grey Death Legion has been filled by the 228 Mercenary Group
  • The following factions are now active: CDS: Russian Clan Diamond Shark; CBU: Restless Adders; CSA: Smoke Adders. We welcome them to the league and wish them good fights.


League Jobs

  • The ongoing quest to find those to record NBT matches and upload them to the internet continues! Please visit this thread to contribute!
  • Looking to make some extra money, get a few free mechs of your choice, or perhaps even a factory for your faction? Then contribute to the Planetary History Project. The better the input, the better the reward!


In Other New

  • The New Avalon Press is abuzz about the opening of an Arby's within the Fox's Den. When asked for a comment, Prince Hanse Davion was quoted as saying "(he) was thinking of it for a long time" and that "(he) lives for curly fries".

In Other New
  • Rumors state that there has been a lot of noise coming from Humanity's cradle. When asked to comment, the Primus began to laugh maniacally. INN was later informed this was due to a funny joke regarding scorpions.
