Fellow Living Legends,
As we all know, GameSpy services have been shut down for quite some time. This has made playing the Greatest Combined-Arms Battletech Experience quite a challenge. There may be a learning curve to the game, but there shouldn’t be one to install it! It has still been possible to play MWLL thanks to the dedication and perseverance of our community, and now, once again they’ve made even easier to get back in action than ever before.
Simply running the patcher is all that’s needed to let you play MWLL right now.
No more Gamespy accounts!
No more hostfile editing!!
Just install and play!!!
Check out r/mwll too, where updates for community events like the Open Merc Night and Chaos March will be posted, as well as the upcoming New Player Guide.
The updated installation guide with the GameSpy Fix can be found here:
See you on the Battlefield Mechwarriors!
