To my knowledge, Washington has no anti-copyright troll laws.

It's kinda interesting that Harebrained is named throughout the document, even though all their designs come directly from PGI and MechWarrior Online.

Well, HBG could probably try to get a venue change.

Also since PGI is being sued as well, I magine Microsoft will probably step in since they still have the rights to Battletech.

HBG is based in Seattle. Washington is the most appropriate location.

Microsoft owns MechWarrior. BattleTech is owned by Topps.

At least the back story is believable and realistic, because if your main is pole dancing, it's easy to convert to nin-jutsu, kung-fu and street practical martial arts.

With Paradox finally announcing that they are overhauling the combat balance of Stellaris (naked corvette spam for dddaaayyss!), I started up a new game to refresh myself. Having a good time, crushing my enemies, bringing democracy to the heathens, you know, all that good 'Muriken stuff. Then suddenly...

aaawwww how cute! Oh wait, Awakened Empire, I'm so fucked. Guess I'll bend the knee, for now.

Think you have what it takes to enlist into the military? You sure about that?

Confucius say balance without design is void.

Or maybe it was Lao-Tse. But you get the idea.

Well, I'm the thrall of this Awakened Empire for now, but not for much longer. The TyranidsPrethoryn Swarm has shown up, and my "merciful overlords" are not having a good time with them. They went from dominating about a quarter of the map to their original starting area, and the their home worlds are starting to get chewed on. For now they are making for a nice buffer between the Swarm and me.

Once their latest doomstack gets wiped, I'm rebelling. After that? Well, who knows how I'll do against the swarm....
