Code of Conduct and other general rules/questions.

What is MechSpecs?

MechSpecs is a community platform based around the free sharing of builds in MechWarrior Online.

MechSpecs differs from other MWO build sites in that it aims to be a completely community-run platform, making anyone able to share and comment on builds they enjoy playing, while other sites will generally only list builds that are 'meta'. Since piloting a good mech vastly improves your chances to win, see this as a knowledge base for people who are looking for builds that are not only efficient, but also fun and/or original!

What are the Code of Conduct on MechSpecs?

Welcome to the MechSpecs forums
, an MWO discussion forum, targeted towards topics regarding high-end mech customization, mix/maxing and analysis of game mechanics.

First, a point of clarification. We work on a Three Strikes System. Your third strike will be your last.

The people that participate here at MechSpecs are some of the best pilots out there. We have high standards for the discussion that occurs herein, and are quite unapologetic about it. If you feel our rules are stupid or arbitrary, we don't really care. If you don't wish to follow them, you are welcome to return to the official Mechwarrior Online forums and participate in the chaos over there.

The following is our Code of Conduct. You are expected to adhere to these protocols as they are put in place to make this community run smoother than some of the other MWO boards out there.

Please keep in mind that our goal is to promote good old fashioned clean(ish) fun, as well as informed discussion, or even debate, on all things related to MechWarrior Online; however we wish to do this in an environment free of toxicity and bullshit.


While this Code of Conduct is a guideline to help our moderation staff deal with problematic issues, it is by no means final; each case will be weighed by the Moderation Team and dealt with according to the actual severity of the incident. While we generally utilize a Three Strikes Rule, if you break these rules to a degree, that warrants immediate banning, trust that you will receive it.

What is a 'Benefactor' or 'Star Lord'?

Benefactors and Star Lords are people who supported the site by way of a donation.

This is a 100% non-profit community-run site, so all donations will be used to keep the site going for you as long as possible! We highly appreciate the support given to us, so in return we provide our supporters with Premium Content not available to regular registered members, which is handy for frequent visitors.
This includes things like the removal of all google ads, premium sale and build guides, a personal Bookmarking tool to help you keep builds readily available for reading and tracking and widespread discussion in the Benefactors' Areas of the site and the discord.

For more information, check out the 'Donate' tab!

How can I get rid of the Google Ads on MechSpecs?

Why would you want to?

It takes money to keep this site going; currently around $500.00 per year in hosting and bandwidth costs. Why not contribute to keeping the community open by clicking on an Ad every once in a while (assuming you find them interesting). Do your part in keeping the #1 MechWarrior Online non-official community alive!

Another thing you can do is upgrade your account. This WILL get rid of the Google Ads as you are helping keep us open through a membership model. Premium members get different things but that is outlined in a different FAQ ;)
