A Mech Commander must prove that he is a true mechwarrior, but also must prove that he has the skills necessary to command in battle.
In order to Join Clan Fire Mandrill, you must pass the ToA [Trial Of Acceptance]. ToA(s) can be conducted only by a FM member of rank 8 or above [Galaxy Commander, SaKhan or Khan]. The ToA consists of two parts
Part 1 - The Blooding
This part of the ToA is designed to show your ability to range your opponent and your ability to pick appropriate weapons layout(s).
You will bring/buy one mech of your choice, layed out with the weapons of your choice. Your goal is to try and win 3 rounds of 1v1 mech combat with a single mech. Each round you will face a different mech with different weapon layouts. You are not allowed to capture any turrets, sensors, door controls, arty crates...etc. However, you are allowed to repair in between rounds.
Part 2 - Commanding
This part of the ToA is designed to show how well you control a your mechs in combat situations.
Mech Setting: Stock (you are not allowed to change the weapons on your mechs).
