In late August, MekWars: Legends launched their eighth campaign. This is a great time to grab the client, and play the game. Everyone is at the same level of development; that helps to keep things even early on. Whether you are a new MekWars player or a long time veteran, this is a good opportunity to get in on the action.
MekWars is a program that enables people to play MegaMek online. There are several MekWars servers hat bring people together. You join a faction, track finances, launch attacks, and fight in MegaMek battles. MekWars: Legends takes place in 3067, and it is one of the most active MekWars servers out there, with a great community. Since it was formed in 2009, it has launched seven previous campaigns – so it has a new campaign about every six months.
Every so often, a MekWars server reboots, and a new campaign follows. This often happens when one faction takes out another. The reboot brings everyone back to the same level. Since the relaunched server has been up for such a small amount of time, there are a lot of opportunities for a new player to make an impact and not feel overwhelmed by longtime vets.
