It's a war dec ;p

We had an employer deceide they wanted to do their contract at a later date and our scouting contract was...a scouting contract Rolling Eyes so we have been saving up isk on account of that confusion.

There's also been a good deal of recruiting going on, as we're about twice the size of last week.

I would like to contract you. Could you give me a quote on what it would cost me to have you pod yourselves until you either quite eve, or you stop adding to the Merc spamming of the forums?

I'm willing to pay quite a bit.

From Local:

Inspector Recon > atleast out of the 3 mercs that dec'd us you cause the most damage

Well the war is over. They were tough targets, small size, big ships, high-sp, and very disciplined. While our loss level can partly be explained by alot of my new recruits not being used to working together, honestly they were our toughest targets yet and just plain "won".

That said, while they "won" we fufilled our contract instructions of causing maximum damage possible, easily doubling what we were paid.

New contract will be announced shortly.

So you got spanked and still took the employers fee. Go back to your day job, you obviously don't have what it takes to be a merc

Decent mercs have greater than 90% success rate on isk destroyed/lost..that is what they are paid for...

Actually in my experience clients only care about isk killed, and really couldn't give a crap about how many ships the people they pay lose, unless part of the contract conditions are that the client covers those losses.

Put it this way, if you hired a merc force would you rather they killed 1bn and lost nothing, or killed 5bn and lost 5bn? Mercs who think first about killboard ratios are, in my opinion, spending too much time bragging to the community about how good they are, and not enough time getting the job done.

I'm inclined to agree with Khul. While we are, of course, concerned with keeping a good and constantly improving efficiency, the contract and the employers satisfaction comes first. Always.

You can look at it the other way around, though. The more time a merc corps spends on the logistics part of replacing lost ships etc., the less time and members they have to actually do the job they've been hired for. So trying to keep losses balanced makes sense both for the client and the merc corp.

Don't know how its for you guys, but my peeps have to get at least 4 decent PvP ships each near the hostile base. I know thats boring and time consuming, but what else to do in the 48 hours of war deccing -_-

I'm not trying to justify poor K : D ratios, and I would agree that low numbers could well make a client think that had he hired better mercs then they would have made more kills for the losses they had incurred (if you are going to lose 10 ships in a fight, better to take down 15 enemy than 5), in addition to the higher pressure and intensity that losing fewer ships puts on a contracted target. However I think there's more to be said than just "your ratio is crap, how can you call that successful?".

Contract history updated with our first OPFOR contract.

Working with SROCK over the past week has been really cool. After some issues fine tuning the difficulty level the constant fighting was fun it was very rewarding to see SROCK pilots improving with each sortee.

Would definatly do an OPFOR type program with another corporation in the future, so i've now officially added it to our list of available services.

I think you are ... well, very off.
First of all, you've never been in MH low-sec and had to deal with Inspector Recon, have you ?
If you had been there, you would know that it's very hard to get good stats against those guys.
They never fight unless they have a 2:1 ratio at least, they hide their real numbers through a series of NAPS with other corps/alliances, and because of the way minnie stations are, they're usual tactic, is to use Rapiers with triple webbs, webb you off station, and then get 10 bs's plated and gank fitted on top of you. They are not easy to fight because they use scouts and the MH intel channel, and they will only engage/undock if they have superior numbers.
Now, for the other part of your post.
Most requirements from mercs are to cause grief. 90% efficiecy i don't think was achived even by MC, unless it was versus a very very disorganized and stupid target - you don't get many of those. The only merc outfit that managed a constant 90% efficiency versus almost all of their targets is Burn Eden, by using the damp-cruise-raven / damp-sniper-bs with support ships in NPC corps. But their outfit is aimed more against denial of a chokepoint in 0.0 and their fee is probably also very consistent.

Personally, if i were to hire mercs, my requirements would be a 70% efficiency in the war at least, and to cause them grief. Camping them with superior numbers, and making them go off-line for 1-2 weeks while i pay, and they play GTA-SA/WOW is not what i'm aiming for.
Them losing ships left and right, and losing members like crazy would be what i'm looking for. :)

That being said, i have no ideea how good Noir. are. :)

dont see the problem with a merc corp having more losses than kills, the reason i say this is the fact that the merc's are paid to complete a goal.
And even if they lose more than they kill they have inflicted damage and disrupted the daily operations of the target.
if im gonna go a bit historical on you the mercenary line of work is the most shure thing to get you killed, the employer tend to put you on the hardest and risky jobs. romans tended to put the mercenary foot soildiers in the army center due to the heavy losses and to keep them in line.

so even is it's not a total pwnage as long the employer is happy with the result then its a contract well done. Wink

I truely appriciate all the interest shown in hiring Noir. over the past few days but to save our valued customers alot of time, I'll reiterate that we're booked solid for a while.

I'll be updating this thread when we're free for more contracts so just keep your eye on this thread if you want Noir. for an operation or campaign.

The one exception to this is consulting; this I can fit in. So if you want a detailed, intense, and confidential constultation on corp management, corp developement, quality control/objective assessment, PVP, or devising a strategy for an upcoming military campaign contact me in game.
