We will need to pick a side in December to participate in Community Warfare. So It is time to get the discussion started.

After some research, it doesn't seem there will be much difference between factions and what mechs we can use. It will simply be IS vs Clan.

There is TONS of info regarding CW on the MWOMercs.com forum so please go there.

So this will be the thread where we debate which faction to choose. 
Things to consider:
  • Beer Warriors are currently planned to be a Merc unit when it becomes available. (That means inner-sphere) Unless there is a large majority that says otherwise and it is determined to be the better decision for the group.
  • We will have the option to change factions if we don't like it, but we must stay until our contract is complete.
  • Do we want to be in a faction near the clan invasion front? 
  • Do we want to only fight against other IS factions?
  • Consider what the population of each faction is predicted to be. This will affect wait time.
  • Which group's ideals/culture are most similar to that of the Beer Warriors. And does that matter to you?
  • Some mechs may be cheaper for other factions. So pay attention to which factions are the creators of specific chassis.
  • Keep in mind where groups such as SJR, 228, Lord, etc. are going. Also keep FNCY in mind.


I really want to hear everyone's thoughts on the matter so we can make a decision. So post your opinion and why you feel that way. Also please try to be understanding that we can't make everyone happy.

If we stick with going with Inner Sphere, we should join up with either Davion, Steiner, or the FRR. Why is that?

Davion faction: essentially King Arthur's England, but with mechs (and since there's a heavy English history feel to House Davion, you know they have some beers that'll blow your fucking mind)

FRR: Bascially a combination of Scandinavian and some Asian cultures. Which means Nordic booze + Japanese Sake = Mead Sake bombs!

Steiner: English, Scottish, and German roots. Seriously, you've got your ales, stouts, whiskeys, and porters all wrapped up in 1 faction. Need I say more?

Now if we were to pick clans at all, I'd say Clan Ghostbear. Reason being is that compared to the other clans, they're the most reasonable (they do ally up with the FRR at some point IIRC), and we can make bear noises while fighting for them. Also, bear is spelled very similarly to beer. Coincidence? I think not.

Lastly, I'd say we should fight near the clan invasion zone just so we can have both IS and clan engagements, which will mix things up nicely. Also the sooner I can 'salvage' enough to use my Warhawks / Timberwolves the better lol.

I want to play with my clan mechs. Of the clans...I like bears a lot, and Setun's reasoning of Bear == Beer is awesome.

If we have to play stupid inner sphere...MARIKA.

Cause I LOVE FREEDOM

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO PLAY MARIKA YOU ARE A TERRORIST.

That aside:

I agree that if we go Clan, we go Clan Ghost Beer. Because they have a Bear Spider for a symbol. IT COULD BE A BEER SPIDER. You could do the Beer Warriors skull with bottles surrounding it like the Ghost Bear symbol. PUT THAT IN THE BOOKS.

If we go Inner Sphere, I vote Free World's League (Marik) or Free Rasalhague Republic. Because we need to bring every world some Freedom. Marika-style.

BUT I also think they are gonna give more rewards to the lowest populated faction each month as a draw to get people to play them. So more than likely, we would be best to "game" the system by doing monthly contracts and probably switching between Kurita and Liao and so forth as they are likely the lowest populated factions in the game. I assume it will be Ghost Bear and Smoke Jaguar on the Clan side of things.

So my vote is really for whatever gives us the most space bucks and free stuff. I am good to go regardless of side is picked. I prefer Inner Sphere but if I have to, I will dust off the Stormcrows and Timberwolves.

The faction rewards have been listed. Like seeing a variety of stuff can be earned (Cbills, Mechbays, XP, MC, etc.). I'm more keen on IS stuff but very eager to dig into CW.

Geekken, this is awesome. Can you make a separate post for this? A lot of people have questions about this.
