DEFINITION : LEAGUE
Welcome to NetBattleTech: MWO! NBT is one of the oldest planetary resource leagues in existence. It has evolved through several incarnations starting in the mid-1990’s with Activision’s Mechwarrior2: Mercenaries and continuing on through Microsoft’s Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance, Black Knight & Mercenaries. Now, with Mechwarrior:Online, NBT has reinvented itself once again.
NBT-MWO has an automation, comprehensive rules set, and a BattleTech Universe map that has no equal. The goals of the new NBT-MWO league are slightly different from past NBT leagues. They include (but are not limited to):
It is the aim of the NBT team to provide the online gaming and BattleTech enthusiast with the ultimate planetary resource league experience; from exciting simulator battle to the challenge of managing a House, Clan, Periphery Kingdom, Pirate band or Mercenary unit. We hope that you will enjoy your stay in NBT-MWO. And, once again, welcome to the best planetary league on the Net!
With all of the BTech History available to build upon, NBT is requiring that its major member units role-play their selected unit to the best of their ability. This will mean knowing your units history and motivations, and bringing those into the new league. Your unit name is not just a label, it is an entire identity.
We are NOT requiring that our member units play out the BTech timeline after 3050, whether from CBT sourcebooks, and definitely not anything as regards the Dark Age timeline. NBT makes its own history. We are expecting you to role-play your units as you feel they should have acted in the BTech timeline. Alliances may be made and broken, battles fought, borders change. But all must be done with at least a minimum of RP and backstory provided.
There are a wide variety of units available to choose from: From the Major Houses and Invading Clans, to the factions of the Periphery and Kerensky Cluster. There are also dozens of BTech Merc units available to choose from, as well as various Pirate and Periphery units not listed on the main site.
Please take a look at our Unit Application page for more information on the units available.
The ruling body (Administration) of the league will be called ComStar. ComStar, as a unit, does not participate in the league. The various members of ComStar are listed below. They should be contacted directly when you have a question that falls under their specific area of expertise. Group Address: NBT-Admins
As the league is populated by a variety of personalities and people from all areas of the world and walks of life, disagreements sometimes happen between units. In the event that you find yourself at odds with another unit for any reason, there is a certain process to follow in order to bring about a quick and painless resolution to the problem.
Only if a mutually satisfactory agreement cannot be reached, then proceed to step two.
The Admins will then follow up on the matter and tender a decision, informing both sides of the final outcome. Any complaint may also be escalated directly to the Complaint Board, at the discretion of the admin handling the matter.
The Complaint Board will then discuss the matter amongst themselves. If they feel the matter requires action, they will tender their decision, which shall be binding upon both teams involved. They may choose to uphold or disagree with the admins decision.
In review: The process for handling league problems is:
The following actions can cause a complaint to be invalid: skipping steps, not CC'ing the other team, rude or profane language. We request that you follow this procedure as closely as possible. It will help promote league cooperation, as well as keep the league running as smoothly as possible.
Once again, we would like to welcome you to NBT-MWO. We wish you many battles, victories, and just a lot of general fun. If you have any questions, please ask, or view the HPG Uplink for more information.
