Hey how did Pandemic Lunchbox get on with their desperate attempt to re-engage their PVPers after the napfest of blueing everything in sight? They were swarming all over CAOD announcing that they were now open for mercenary business.

This should be in the crime and punishment forum...

But if Hydra's infiltration of Ushra'Khan was a merc job then I'd say they're the best atm.

Untill the appearance of mercs willing to take contract against major alliance including POS bashing, hot-drops etc. - no one deserves "BEST" title.

Even MC during it's best days never did so against "old" RA.

At MC's peak they were steamrolling regions pretty damn fast. Nobody stays at the peak for long though.

I can clear that one up since I used to be an officer in Noir. Noir. doesn't stockpile contract money. It pays it's pilots from the contract payment from employers and from their loot pool after a contract is over. The way they pay is by kb participation. The scouts x up on kills so that leadership knows they were involved since they don't show up on the kb otherwise. Has nothing to do with whoring kills and everything to do with getting paid.

To put it in another way: "It's all about the benjamins"

I don't see "mercs" workin out much now a days, or at least a BIG merc corp/alliance like Old MC. To get all the loads of isk and nice Toys 0.0 is a must for most of it
(contracts pay for most of it, but not all of it and members want to make personal iskies as well)
and we all know you can't have 0.0 with out a ton of blues. and with a ton of blues you are not really true mercs.

I would give my props to old MC if i would give it to anyone.

some people laugh at what happen with them at Tortuga, but ya whatever they gave a try to get some space with very few blues and it didn't work... I can think of much bigger fails in eve than that so umm ya.

If you add all the PL posts together it will still be considerably less than your own compulsive forum spamming efforts.

these so called "new merc's" would be a compliment if they were to actually fight instead of lookin for the easy gank,(talking to you noir) they just sit cloaked up, with scouts in each system and waite for the easy fast gank, scared to loose a ship, even if you go in with 1/2 the numbers of them, a bit pathetic imo, simple tactic just dont go through a gate solo, unless your baite, but of course they use scouts(p***y's), but to each is his own, and we play the game the way we want to..., we had to send out a bait orca with a cyno fit lol, was funny, managed to kill a noir legion and save the orca so was well worth it.

come back now, yah hear! Very Happy

There hasn't been any noteworthy mercenary corps since the fall of MC, as when they died, quite a few of the other merc corps gave it up as well.


Kia was always been the butt end of quite a few jokes, mostly because of Eddz. Not sure how many of the good pilots are still remaining in the corps in said alliance.

The game mechanics really started to kill off Mercs sometime after all of the Sovereignty was introduced. The MC taking space (we thought it was the way to go) could have gone better but in reality holding sov as a merc corp makes you vulnerable (depending on where it is.) Having a collection of pilots of similar caliber as the old MC in today's EVE would put you on top if you had the money to fund it.

I give props to those corps in EVE who continue to try and keep the mercenary business alive today. It's not an easy road by any means. But the time requirements to be really good at it are ultimately what end up burning everyone out. (Alarm clock ops and devoting all your free time tends to eventually eat away everything else in life.)
