I have noticed of late that the mercenary business is getting flooded and as a result many of the mercenary corporations have started to point out the faults of the other mercenary corporations in an attempt to get more jobs.

This has got to stop.

People are coming in here and looking for quotes and every single thread is degenerating in to a ****ing contest. While this is hilarious for the rest of us its not making you look very professional.

So please, all merc corps, find a representative and post in here why someone should choose you over another merc corp. Make this your time to shine and show off how good you are.

I agree. That's why I suggested a merc contest / tournament thingy, months ago. But fighting each other in pitched battles was quickly dismissed as a means to judge them back then. But how about:

1. Randomly pick a suitably large alliance from a list of potential targets (or even multiple ones)

2. Wardec them with every merc corp for a few weeks

3. See who gets the best stats on them (relatively, so also looking at the number of active members on this 'contract')

4. ????

5. Profit: an 'official' ranking for a year + lulz & plenty of C&P forum drama about it

Any suggestions for targets?

edit: of course killing opposing merc corp members or remote repping war targets and/or making secrit agreements with them would be *coughs* frowned upon severly. But no doubt the merc channel guru's can come up with rules to govern this and work it out some more.

I smell an opportunity for a niche market here: corporations/alliances that offer merc-benchmarking! (damn, if only the IEEE hadn't gone up in smoke!)

But seriously, for a reasonable ammount of isks, I'm sure my corp is willing to put merc-services to the test. Heck, we're already testing Snatch and R.E.P.O. at this very moment!

Of course, a merc corp won't hire us to test their own services. No, we would be hired to test the services of the competition, and give an objective report.

For a few isks more, the report can be...errr...adjusted to contain slightly less objective results. YARRRR!!

For a billion isks, we expose your competition's incompetence to the very scrutiny of everyone that wants (or not) to hear about it. Cool

Yeah, in the light of recent events, this might actually be a viable business-model! =)

Orphanage dropped the war against us. Their efficiency is down to about 36% now. But I will say this, you guys did make it a tad more difficult to chase down our other targets by cutting off the Jita - Amarr pipe.

As for the 0rphanage they donít seem like the Privateers from the recent past. They werenít just pipe camping / Hub station tactics.
They actually had some nice fleets hunting down targets. I was happy to see this. Not sure where there going or planning but the picture looks good so far for them. Locking down the major pipes as well as the major trade hubs while still having a decent fleet out hunting.
It was a good war for a change in my opinion. Heck They even engaged when they only had 1 to 1 odds. Which is a huge statement these days in eve it seems very rare in empire wars for targets to actually fight without logistic alts or 5 to 1 odds.
Donít get me wrong there were those who did still employ the old tactics but meh. I look forward to our next war with them.

Albatheron has confirmed that Methods of Destruction will also travel as far as Geras w/ prons and gravediggers to engage an enemy. I won't acknowledge Jesslyn being there, she hurt my feelings several years ago and I haven't fully recovered. A pretty rainbow pic in this thread would make those sad feelings go away though!! And cheers to the good fights w/ you guys. We've crossed in the past and as already noted, we'll cross again. You guys are always good sports on both the winning and losing end of the fights.

TBH I blame the recession. That or cheap immigrant mercenaries.

Or most likely more people in eve = more people wanting mercs, and more mercs to be wanted.

Lets face it if mercs can't get jobs or aren't able to do those jobs, then they don't stay mercs for long. Forum smacking aside, this isn't really a problem. If you've been to see and pee once before you know that there will always be shiptoasting and thats pretty much it. Its like discussing your billion dollar merger in a monkey pen. Sure there's some serious discussion, but theres a fair chance it gets drowned out by screaming, and you can bet your ass everyone is coming out with a little poop on them.

As much I want to believe your statement my realty with fighting them has been far different then yours.

"They werenít just pipe camping / Hub station tactics."


For the most part, most of them can be found on a daily bases camping the Jita to Amarr pipe, usually on the mad gate 2 jumps from Amarr. Depending on the Corp within the alliance they will be either in Rens, but again usually found camping the Middle Amarr Station or Jita 4-4.

For the last 2 weeks they where informed by Alliance mail from Pitboss to stay out of Jita and to not engage our gang because they would not get a "fair" fight Laughing

Our whole alliance consisting of 3-4 people was too much for there 300 man alliance, it came to the point where we had to made an effort and get out of Jita Razz and go
hunting. Anytime we did that, they would have there alts sitting 5-6 jumps from Amarr inform the alliance via there Intel channels and either go somewhere else or dock. Til we left or gave up.

As for RR they have there RR alts and plenty of them, when you undock from Jita 4-4 when there outside expecting a fight look behind the station and u will see there neutral RR.

The biggest problem with the 0rphanage like most people I have encountered is that the left hand don't talk to the right hand, you will have 2 different corps sitting outside Jita 4-4, one will be shooting there other one running away, our biggest advantage has been they don't work as a team just like the last alliance they where in.

There either afraid to lose there ships or just don't like following orders and do whats in THERE best interests rather then help there gang out.

As an example...

The 0rphanage talk about how they won't get a fair fight from us, either because of.. I fight with rare ships or Loki has 10 RR alts lol ( that there always complaining about, which is does not own).

If you look at there Killboard one of the last loses was a Tempest, In order for them to engage, it taken 45mins of station tricks me downgrading from a T1 BS to a T2 fitted Cane and them able to get neutral RR in position behind the station ( as expected).

Finally fight begins 8 Vs 2 there either in BS's or Hac's and 1 CMD ship, fighting 1 Cane and 1 Vindy, I start to engage the EOS, shoots back as there "gang" undocks, what I notice is there all locking me shooting, my other gang member undock and this is what I was talking about some of them are not all on the same page, Vindi undocks and 1-2 of them stop shooting.

EOS is going down but as expected he gets RR we decide to switch targets to the tempest again same thing his tank is failing getting heavy RR from behind the station. Since where masters Coolof killing ships before they dock who have stopped shooting and getting RR our usual plan goes into action, and just before he is able to dock he goes down.

By this time most of them either have warped of or docked, again all of them are not on the same page and just looking out for themselves.

I'm not crying nor do I care, but I have a very different experience of fighting the 0rphanage.

Sure they are a funny crowd and provide lots of entertainment, a few might do roam around depending on what corp has joined there alliance, but at the same point in time it's no different from there last alliance.

All Pitboss cares about is how much he has made for the current week from the corps that are in the 0rphanage, since there required to make sizable "donations" on a weekly bases, either for the Wardecs or/and his wallet LaughingLaughing

I'd put my reputation as a fair, no scamming, honest player in-game up against yours ANY DAY.

DON'T EVER slander my motivations / efforts in-game just because you're still BUTT HURT over the loss of your POD ...

We dont bother with you because all we can expect is a buffer tanked faction bs and playing station games with you and the horde of neutral RR alts and friends you call in every time, REPO on the other hand will engage us in a fight that doesnt involve humping a station
As i stated before we dont consider you a real threat and you dont pose any real threat to our operations
And as for slating pitboss Evil or Very Mad
He often stumps up the cash for a dec himself, if the loot pinata gods havent been kind to us in our nightly hunts so going there isnt going to work :)
