So while aping thru amarr i notice a small fight on station and to my suprise snatch victory are having to use a corp for nuetral rr. Which i have just found are the 1's paying for the war dec so is this now a viable tactic for all mercs to use nuet rr to win a fight.

Thanks for youre time

No, not really. Anything but epic to be frank.

Stop bumping your own shiptoast with alts.

Yeh definately dont hire people who win fights that would be terrible plan. Basically yes some mechanics in this game are stupid (neut RR is not one of them) but you shouldnt refuse to use them due to some e-honour rubbish.

No, this wasn't ours. We troll them for not doing their job, not for using neutral remote repair.

Plus we call them out with our mains. There's no need to hide behind alts when someone got paid to dec you and they have a 31% ISK efficiency against you.

Neutral dock hugging RR that instantly docks when it is in trouble is lame, however, it is one of the most effective tactics in highsec. It doesn't take any skill, and it is very risk-free and more often than not creates boring stalemates or situations where very few people die. Since these issues ranked quite highly on the CSM November Priotisation poll, I hope that CCP stops insta redocking neutral RR.

That said though, Expecting a mercenary alliance to fight you on your terms and give you good fights is ******ed though, they are being paid to kill you and frustrate you as much as possible, if it means using neutral RR, they're going to do that. When I was in highsec wars prior to trinity, mercs used to deliberately CONCORD when they were going down to prevent you getting a killmail (and then never posting it), used to do login traps all the time and adjusted killboard prizes to better buff up their contract history. Nothing has changed really, people are going to abuse dubious game mechanics as long as they are not declared exploits and exist.

Link the stats, lets have a look at that one. From what I have seen of SV they are not afraid to risk their expensive ships. Most of the time when I have seen them with low efficiency it is because they lost one very nice ship whilst killing (numerically) loads of enemy. Having hired them in the past (yes I'm a fan!) I was impressed that they risk their nice stuff on behalf of the client, more than can be said for most who never leave docking range Laughing

If you are referring to the war in which a French guy lost a nicely fit Vindicator to three carriers (a situation often seen in some dudes eve videos, and people think that guy is kind of cool), it was retracted at the clients request. Unfortunately I can't keep shooting someone after they have made a deal not to be shot at anymore. We can always put it back in though if you feel you haven't owned us enough.

I hear your client had to borrow isk Laughing topay for the SV deck against this particular wartarget in question and dropped it when he ran out ....although im tryign to fathom why he paid for a merc corp in the 1st place, though having said that he did want a 3 man corp to lift a deck against his own corp >.<
Anyhoo....i would gladly exhange a handfull of bc's if it meant killing a multi-billion isk ship, would hurt the target more than it would hurt my guys :P
