Fellow Mechwarriors,

You thought MWLL was a forgotten casualty, but the Legends Live on!

Several community members have very much kept the fires going and have now revived our Total Conversion mod with their Community Edition (found here). Now with an all in one installer, it has never been easier to play. Simply download and play!

As for Wandering Samurai Studios, we are no longer pursuing future development on MWLL and thus passing the torch onto the Community Edition team and wish them all the best in their endeavors. We are confident that they will uphold the all rights that were granted in the development of MWLL as well as assume any and all responsibilities with regards to the legal obligations of this non-profit total conversion mod.

With great pride, we look forward to seeing where the Community Edition team will take this total conversion mod and what legends may emerge in the future.

Best of luck, Community Edition! May you become the next Living Legends!

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!

Another random person on the web tried to get into our MWLL Wiki trying to brute force their way through our login site. So far we haven’t found any successful attempts in hijacking a user account and no changes to the Wiki have been logged. It might just have been another robot tried to get data it was not supposed to.

This attack was originating from a single address starting at 18/Dec/2010:10:49:14 resulting in 12049 attempts to access the login page. We have added this address to our blocklist denying all and any access to our server.

Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused when accessing our services.

Feel free to discuss this post in our existing forum post.

We have been having issue for the past few hours starting at 5:17 AM GMT with our website being overloaded with requests. As it turned out the MWLL Wiki has been a target of a fake robot pretending to be Majestic-12 (http://www.majestic12.co.uk/projects/dsearch/mj12bot.php) which caused the server to run under very high load. We have been able to identify the offending IP’s and started rejecting them. Server load is now running as low as usual again without any interruptions of other sites.

The intentions of those fake robots are unknown but likely they only farmed same data found on the website. No other parts of the system were affected by the robot, no access was gained during the attack.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Please discuss this post in our forum.

At the request of MWLL community wiki admin Sky_Walker, the lead developers of MechWarrior: Living Legends have completed a community interview.  The interview was composed of questions submitted by the MWLL community and answered by Lead Devs Toth, Seraph and KingLeerUK.  We have answered to the best of our ability and hope you enjoy this look inside of our development process.
