After Stephan Amaris destroyed the Star League and General Alexander Kerensky lead the SLDF into it’s exodus, the lords of the great houses cannot agree to a new First Lord of the Star League.
When Minoru Kurita steps forward by declaring himself First Lord, all other House Lords do the same and fighting errupts throughout the whole Inner Sphere…

  • All 5 great houses will have the exact same economical strength at start, which is 19 planets consisting of total 180 sectors
  • All factions will have unique Mech building queues for factories and markets:

  • Mech markets can produce light to heavy Mechs and cannot be sabotaged

Rules updates
Player Combat tickets
Each player starts with 2 combat tickets. After a fight, a ticket is removed from the player and all other players of the given unit are set back to 2 tickets. Spread fights evenly among yourselves to prevent players from running out of tickets! A player without tickets cannot fight! He will need to wait, until another player of his unit has fought a battle.
Attack Limits
A unit can have a maximum of one Planetary Conquest, one other attack and one counter declared against the same unit at the same time. This means that Unit A can declare one Planetary Conquest + one Raid,Theft, Recon, Sabotage Run and one Counter against Unit B, and Unit B can do the same to Unit A.
Round Limits
  1. Counter, Recon, Theft, Planetary Conquest drop 1: 20 rounds
  2. Sabotage, Planetary Conquest drop 2: 25 rounds
  3. Planetary Conquest drop 3: 30 rounds
  4. Landing Zone Raid: analogue to Planetary Conquest drop 1
If a match is not finished uppon limit, following procedures take place: If both players agree, match goes on until resolution. If not, the party, which has the higher BV value still standing goes out as winner. Mechs, which do not have any weapons left are reduced to 1/3rd of their BV, Mechs which lost a leg or side torso to 50% of their BV.
Mech XP
  1. Rookie Mechs earn 0% BV reduction from Mech class default BV
  2. Novice Mechs earn 3.33% BV reduction from Mech class default BV
  3. Average Mechs earn 5% BV reduction from Mech class default BV
  4. Veteran Mechs earn 10% BV reduction from Mech class default BV
  5. Elite Mechs earn 12% BV reduction from Mech class default BV
New Fight Type: Theft
You attempt to steal Mechs from your opponents faction, which your faction cannot produce.
2d3 dice chance to salvage a Mech. ( which makes 2 to 6 Mechs )
updated fight type: Landing Zone Raid
LZR are attacks against an enemy staging area, which can be conducted 36 hours after enemy landing (no matter if ships unloaded or not). It is fought like a Planetary Conquest but all 3 drops have a 20 rounds limit.
30.000 C-Bills per won drop.

Start up BV table.

This is the BV value table after the map reset spawn script.
There are some outliers, like the Spider, Zeus or Locust, which are caused by the garrison spawning.
I suspect those values to survive not even seconds, after Season start, when all units will be able to buy additional Mechs.

Another reason is, that no unit currently has Mechs, that are part of the next HBS Battletech update or Urban Warfare. Still, those Mechs influence the calcualtion of course.
I left them out of the unit spawn, to prevent issues, if the update – for any reason – will not include all of them.
