MechCorps is locked and loaded for the 2017 Convention Season!

posted Jan 4, 2017, 8:24 PM by Muerte MechCorps   [ updated Jan 4, 2017, 8:28 PM ]

Our fireworks are primed and ready for a whole new year of convention explosions!  MechCorps will be launching on expeditionary missions throughout and we want to see each and every one of our pilots from throughout the region. 

We have some conventions already confirmed for 2017. Starting things off will be CyPhaCon in Lake Charles, Louisiana on April 7-9, 2017!  Our Mechjocks have flown escort for this convention since the very beginning and CyPhaCon 2017 will be no different.  MechCorps is always a favorite at MechaCon in New Orleans, Louisiana so be sure to look for us there again July 28-30, 2017.  While MechCorps may attend many conventions throughout the year, the biggest convention that we attend would have to be Atlanta’s own Dragon*Con - September 1-4, 2017!  Dragon*Con is the largest fan party in the south and MechCorps will be right at the center of it all, providing the finest in giant robot gaming!

If you are not able to make a convention or just want to get some more personal time with the pods, then be sure to come out for Regular’s Night at MechCorps HQ!  We offer all the fun you have seen at conventions plus even more pods for even more players in game at once.  If Regular’s Night is not enough destruction for you, then why not rent our HQ for a private event!  Be sure to check our Convention Tour Schedule and our Regular’sNight schedule and information on MechCorps' private parties.

See you on the battlefield, Mechwarrior.
