Welcome to the home of A.C.E.S.

Armored Combat Escalation Service, better known by our acronym A.C.E.S. is a mercenary company which focuses mainly on the game MechWarrior Online, but we also plan on playing MechWarrior: Tactics.

A.C.E.S mercenary company is built around a community focusing on having fun while playing competitive MechWarrior and we are always looking for players who share the same mindset of having fun, being friendly, playing as a team, and able to complete objectives given to them in a competitive and also non-competitive setting.

A.C.E.S was founded in 2011 with the announcement of MechWarrior: Online by Phil “Sean Lang” & Daeron “Bombadil” and was promptly turned over to Founders/Aces Adam0 & Cattra Kell.  A.C.E.S. has been operated by Adam “Adam0” & Brandon "Cattra Kell" since 2011. Wil “IronWarsmith”, Ty “Mechakaiju” & Nik “Pancakeman” are currently helping with daily operations.  This does not make us a new group though, and many of our Leaders have been playing together in various video games for a long time.  Do not let this discourage you; we are very open to everyone interested in joining the A.C.E.S deck of cards.

We at A.C.E.S. strive to be both a Casual and Competitive Group.  That may seem like a contradiction to most and to some extent it is, but we have a place for both the serious and casual gamer within our ranks and there is always someone to Drop with in our channels.  We do not carry or enforce any type of military rank structure here, but we do have Officers that have either proven their dedication to the Corp through initiative and effort or have been with us since Inception. These individuals are expected to be shown respect and consideration when advice is given. Most, if not all, have been playing MWO since closed Beta or come from other highly ranked competitive online games so give them deference when and where necessary.

See You on the Battlefield MechWarrior,
-Adam O’Dochartaigh A.C.E.S. Human Resource Management & Official Sulfur Mine Slave

    Hello A.C.E.S. Members & Guests!

The recent August 18th Patch had many elements to it that have changed various aspects of MWO.  One of these is the replacement of the ELO System with the PSR (Pilot Skill Rating) System.  This new system is designed in a way to more actively reflect the fact that MWO is a team-based game and not a single-player, 1v1, game.  While we don't know the exact formula for calculating a person's PSR, we do know that many of the actions that you and your team take in a match factor into it.  This means that the weight of your PSR is more evenly distributed and affected by not only your actions but also the actions of your team.  From the Patch Notes:

With the new PSR system:
  • If a players' team wins, and the player did well during the match (achieving a high Match Score), the player will rise in skill rating.
  • If a players' team wins, but the player did not perform well (achieving a low Match Score), the player will not move in terms of skill rating.
  • If a players' team loses, but the player does exceptionally well (achieving a very high Match Score), the player will go up slightly in skill rating.
  • If a players' team loses, but the player performed well (achieving a high Match Score), the player will not move in skill rating.
  • If the players' team loses, and the player performed poorly (achieving a low Match Score), they will drop in skill rating.

Your PSR will put you into one of five Tiers for Ranking, with Tier 1 being the highest and Tier 5 being the lowest.  PGI says that this will help make Matchmaking a fairer proposition where a Tier 1 player will never face off against a Tier 4 or Tier 5 player.

With this now in-game there have been many players asking whether the PSR should be publicly displayed, wanting to know both their own as well as those of their opponents and teammates.  PGI is considering the matter and is asking the MWO Community for their input by putting up a PSR Display Poll on the Forums.  The Poll runs until September 2nd so try to login and let your opinion be known by casting a vote.  Please note that any display of the PSR will be according to the Tier Ranking (the Tier that you as an individual place in) and not your actually PSR value.
