I'm interested to hear how often pirate corps find themselves at war with mercs, particularly the more well known corps?

Don't want to go into details about our last war as it will result in flames, but I'm interested to hear your stories.

I hear that Cult of Cuthulhu have taken several jobs on pirate corporations. That was kind of their first modus operandi, if I recall correctly.

Otherwise, I assume that pirate corps are far more often hired to do somebody in than they are at the recieving end of the same. After all, hunting a small, mobile force can be an excercise in futility, as I'm sure you know very well.

why would anyone want to war dec a pirate corp? If they are any good they are all below -5 anyway. If they are above that they are probably working in 0.0 and there's no need for a war dec.

Many good mercenary corps are anti-pirate anyway.

Buy yes, mercenary corps are often engaged to deal with pirates, commonly by industrial corporations who are random empire dec'd by opportunists.

Aye Huff tech is currently at war with GH-SC so yes we have been contracted against but we raise a lot of hell so its understandable.

Being it's mostly new players none of them have money. Me and my fiance will head to 0.0 and it's the same boat with a alliance if we get a few kills on them. Everyone cooler is just docked or throwing rocks at us behind a fleet.

When we used to pirate we were often threatened with war but it didnt come about. We had a few guys who would try and break up our camps such as marcopollo, smeagol and kinsy.

After the new gates were added we had G members attack us now and then aswel

In the recent past, two separate industrial corporations that we were having some disputes with did hire mercs: Celtic Anarchy and Pilots of Honour.

Both outfits were excellent PVPers and ended up adding alot of excitement to some rather stale wars.

We've had numerous threats in the past, but I never paid much notice since they're often just disgruntled "non-combatants" who are outraged by our griefing.

OK, the last corp to declare war on BURN EDEN was FRICK in 2004. That was their only contract where they lost more than they killed. Since then, nobody has war dec'ed us.

We usually get about 1 war dec for every 1000 threats.

I can't think of any big merc corps that have come after us in a long time. Kia came after us a few times in aunenen, but I don't think they were paid for it.

I think the last corp that was hired to kill us was Battle Angels, and that was about 8 months ago. I'm not 100% sure they were hired though because they would generally try to come after us anytime we were around anyway.

TunDragon never got a war declaration since the game started. It might be that it simply doesnt make much sense to declare war to a corp that has only members with a -10.0 standing.

But we get attacked, nearly every day and nearly any alliance or pirate or pirate hunter corp attacked us. Only few succeded. Most died in our defence lines or wasted a lot of time because they came with a fleet we werent able to handle.

All in all piratehunters are our highlights when we go farming. The carebears bring the ISK, the fun comes when pirate hunters show up - as long they dont show up in gangs 10-100 ships.

We had merc's from Battle Angels, Holy Inquisition and vogan deconstruction attempt to engage us. We also had intelligence that xbollox had us on the voting block. It'd be nice to get a loose coalition of pirates together and shut these mercs down.

That was not a contract, we were just going after you for fun. Between contracts we actively pursue pirates to keep the space lanes clear and to keep sharp on the old F1, F2, F3. It wasn't anything personal, just a way to enjoy ourselves during downtime!

I fought quite a few mercs in 0 sec back when I was in DIE. They seemed to think that they were doing a public service or something. Most of our kills were those mercs and other pirates, ironically.

We've been dec'd by MC twice (I think), Sharks once (I think that was for fun) and Cult of Cthulu once.

We must be doing something right (or wrong)Very Happy

I believe we were merc'd in my old corp, but I have not managed to get a definitive answer out of anyone. Some random people war decced us and camped our station for a few weeks. After dishonoring a 1on1 we decided not to give them any more fights, and eventually they left. They were not from a local corp, and given the time they showed up, I think they were hired.
