16AUG2016

New Company Structure and Direction

After some serious problems disagreements over CW/FW, and its viability the Aces Wild disbanded several defunct companies and placed all remaining companies under 1st Battalion, and a switch from being a dedicated Davion Loyalist Unit to a full mercenary faction within MWO.   This was in response to many pilots disagreeing over the importance of faction play and the departure of an entire company to form its own unit.  Additionally there were no games to be had along the Davion border so a change was necessary for the unit to continue faction play.   The change was also done to ensure the longevity of the Aces Wild as fun, mil-sim unit that stresses camaraderie over all else.  (This ultimately proved to be a bad decision and the unit has returned to its original configuration).
