Hello Solaris Fans!
Welcome to the Factory! The old building will be the launching point of the 1st ever Solaris Olympiad. Mechwarriors from across the inner sphere and beyond have come to Solaris to to represent their nation, clan or employer in a year long series of Battlemech contests.
In this evening's event we have Eleven mechwarrior's squaring off. One contestant from the Lyran Alliance (Larry) was delayed in the Lancaster system on his way here due to Jumpship issues. Our lone representative from the Draconis Combine (Lee) will also miss our opening event due to a Battlemech computer core issue.
That brings us to our 11 competitors. They bring a wide range of mechs, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The odd makers have chimed in and here ar the current projections on the chances they feel each contestant has on winning this evening's contest.
That Outworld Alliance mechwarrior must know something that we don't about bringing a Locust into this match. He is massively under armored and under gunned compared with many of his competitors. Most all outweigh him at least two to one. He is the favorite to be eliminated first.
The Top Spot goes to "Viper" from the Federated Suns. That upgraded Watchman is a fine machine, and he should be one of the last few standing.
Dark Horse of the match will be "Irish" in his Brigand. Those Rocket Launchers can bring a world of hurt to one target if he so chooses. He might not be around at the end, but he can have his pick who will be joining him on the side lines...
