In 2000, MechWarrior 4: Vengeance was released and with it, Clan Jade Falcon moved onto a new era. Through much of this time, JFc (the tags used by the Clan on the Zone) played in a number of stock roleplay leagues. Through leagues such as BattleTech Universe, Shattered Sphere League, and Vengeance and Retribution League, Clan Jade Falcon again asserted itself as a dominant force on the battlefield. It was under the leadership of Khan Talon Drake that CJF reached its pinnacle of lethality. In at least two separate leagues, Clan Jade Falcon stepped foot on Terra, and fully conquered it in at least one, claiming the mantle of ilClan. However, with Talon's departure and the decline in popularity of MechWarrior 4, CJF again entered a period of dormancy. Though there was no danger of shutting down completely, the few left behind were left wondering when, or even if there would be a new MechWarrior game to breath life back into the venerable Clan. In 2009, a promotional trailer for a possible game, MechWarrior: 3015, and the free release of MechWarrior 4 by Mektek did just that. New players joined old die-hards, and though MW:3015 would never materialize, CJF was more than ready to welcome the news of a new game that would launch: MechWarrior Online.
