The term "Mech Lab" is used in two ways. First is the actual [MechLab], where you configure your BattleMechs. Second is a general term for the game interface when you are not on the battlefield. Working with the second definition, this section will break down the screens and menus piece by piece. Because this interface must work on many different monitors and resolutions, it is very modular.
After you login to MWO and after every match you are presented with the MWO Home Screen.
1. Pilot Info - Your pilot name, Title and Pilot Skill Rating (PSR). The bar at the bottom fills as you get closer to the next higher rating. Your name and title are displayed above your 'Mech on the battlefield. See [Title/Badges] for more information on titles.
2. Unit Info - Your Unit name, Unit tag and number of members. If you are not a member of a Unit, this is left blank.
3. Currently Selected BattleMech - Information about your current 'Mech: class, tonnage, chassis, variant, nickname, assigned skill points and your experience in this 'Mech.
These three windows may be minimized to give you a better view of your 'Mech.
