    As in the topic..
    Ouer Leader Told me, to choose a Lance, but I see that all existing Lances is full, and the 4Th, is not in my interest, because I'm strictly face to face combat pilot, and My "Atlas" is created to one on one combat, ore one on 2,3,4 or what ever i will face Wink..
    So.. I'm looking for a space for my and my 'Mech.. I also can play a defense role..
    If someone need an agerssive, but inteligent pilot, I'm waiting.
    Best!

    Hail, Panther! Given what you've said here, perhaps you would like a place with Sickle Lance? While the two slots are listed as Defense, Sickle Lance is slated to be diversified between Strike and Defense roles, meaning you would be able to perform either or both roles. Interested?

    If that's not to your fancy, we do still have one Lance awaiting construction (there's a lad interested in leading it once he gets himself on the site), which will likely be pure Strike.

    Hail Keegan!
    I'm very much interested in joining the Sicle Lance.
    As i wrote, I can be an Attacer and also a Defender..
    So, I will take place in Sicle Lance with pleasure.
    But, also, I have something to say about whole organisation of Lances, but I don't know where I can wrote about this?

    No problem.
    I belive we all have some others thing to do, than managing/playing/talking about MWO and 275th Wink

    In a fact, I have something on my mind, about Lances, they whole organisation and such..
    I will try say this as simply as I can, than we might discuss this further or not.
    Each Lance have some particular role to do.. They are specialized..focused on atack or defense..or fire support... and such.
    I belive, that each Lance should be more flexible on battlefield. You know, suitable to do many different tasks.
    Not only defend or attack..
    At the moment, this configuration of Lances is good if You assume, that those lances will support each other in battle. When tehy will face enemy alone, without support from others, they will be in serious danger.
    And this affect even the most heavy Lance made up from heaviest Mechs..
    I think, taht every Lance should have an scout and fire support unit, even if this Lance is strictly made for attack.. hmm in this case i belive that those unit MUST have scout, because the good reecon is very important for sucesfull attack..
    Defenders, and fast attack units should too have scouts in their ranks, cause they too need good reecon.. In fact every unit needs scout and the same is with fire support..
    You know,, as an Merc Corp, we need more balanced, self sufficent units then specialized like some House faction.. and MWO is game where every role is important and is needed on a battlefield...
    I'm very couriouse what You guys will say about this.. and I really belive that You will understand what I have wrote here.. ( I'm sure i made maaaany mistakes Wink and for that i apologise)
    With pleasure i will answer and discuss every question You may have about this topic..
    Best to all of You!

    although i think you made some very valid points i don't think the strategy you provided is any better than the one that is currently being used in the 275th. I think we should experiment with your idea as i believe it has a lot of validity. Me and my Lance were actually originally set up with this idea in mind. We have a scout, a mid range brawler, an atlas, and a long range support. But at the same time i think the way the other lances are set up are very well based in themselves. They create better synergy that commands unit cohesion which is better attained through the setup devised by Aderas. Both ideas have strengths and both have weaknesses. The hard part is playing to those strengths and that is what is going to have to be worked on, tested, and evaluated. For my part i would be more than willing to help with your idea and help it come to frutation and see if it is a viable strategy that could compete with the Setup Aderas has done.

    The 275th was created on the foundation of Balance as a principle, in actuality. I agree that diversity is key in maintaining that- both a battlefield balance, as well as inter-Lance and Company balance. With that said however, each unit also has a specific role. If every unit is diversified, we become set up in a way that makes us, while not weak in any area, not strong either.

    Most of Hyperion Company is entirely diverse, with the exception of HellBorn Lance, which is a dedicated strike force.

    Shadow Company, while still being fleshed out, is likely to fall under a similar principle of having a diverse selection of 'Mechs and setups.

    Both units, if needed, can be meshed together almost seamlessly- HellBorn Lance is still just as self sufficient as any other unit because, while they have a very niche role, they do it very well and can compliment any force.

    As well as that, the Lance/Company set ups are only primaries- if we were operating optimally and had every pilot online, that is the Company/Lance they would be a part of, and even then, roles are not static- just the preferred role is marked down.
    However, we will in most cases be operating sub-optimally. Units will be conjoined with what troops are available, with a preference towards same Company, of course. Companies, eventually, will be part of Battalions, where a preference will lie, and etc. I'm sure in many cases units from Hyperion Company will be operating in Shadow Company, and vice versa as the situation requires.

    There is also the matter of reinforcing weakened areas, once faction warfare becomes available. I've taken all of that into account in that units will need to be shifted from one area to another in order to hold a key area, for instance.

    So! To sum it all up for you, what you've said is entirely accurate- we do need diversity, just as we need specialization, but I think it's a flexibility that we already have, even if it's unspoken. If we had a Company set up that, by chance, was comprised entirely of Strike troops, we'd shift roles for the people that have cross training.

    I hope this has cleared up any concerns you have, though I encourage you to make your opinions known. I'm nothing if not open to the thoughts of my troops, and I consider their thoughts highly important to the efficient running of a mercenary unit.
