Im ammazed how many Mercs there are in EVE, do we have anything else?

I miss the read of a good pirate story, have all pirates turned into Mercs now?

Someone give me a good read, a real pirate story and not "HI WE ARE ANOTHER WANA BE MERC CORP FOR HIRE"

I found myself making an unplanned dock in Jita 4 - 4 recently, whilst camping a war target. The intergallactic space loo's were all busy. I boarded a traders obelisk and left him a nice surprise in his cockpit's glove box.

Does this appease your appetite for dastardly tales?

It started in 06' after warp to 0, when pirates started claiming to be honorable. We honor ransom's and so on, for lack of targets perhaps.
I miss the good old days when my original pirate would puke black blood up in amamake and consistantly kill after recieving ransoms, whilst being chased by mach mercs who didn't have easy mode probes to track me between sniping 100 gate noobs a day and sitting in 1 of 50 far off grid bm's. Then being ganked by sniggerdly. Very Happy

Apperently, your a Merc if you get paid to WarDec a Indy Corp.
And "if I understand my hate mail correctly" a AssHat when you WarDec a Indy Corp for fun.

In all honesty, even though my opinion means ****all, there are truly very few merc corps. Alot of them pretent or think they are Mercs, but unlike me I have no delusions what I do in game. I am a asshat, and if I get paid to do something I will.

Maybe I should just break the mold of Threads that say " HELLO WE ARE MERC... HIRE US" and start posting threads of "HELLO, WE ARE ASSHATS, Hire us if you want those you hate to ragequit or close their corp"

Since the bloodmoney cartel went into stasis... I am still here.. But not pirating as I used to. Well, at least not at the moment. I havent found any pirate corps worth of joining.

My corporation are dedicated to anti-crime although this often leads to clashes with the authorities over differing operative tactics.

Pirates today are just after easy kill more than actuall fights which. They wardec any noob corp randomly for such, so why not get paid for it? Get paid and your a merc more or less. But a merc with rep? Nevah ;)

Pretty much this if you consider Piracy PVP for earning ISK. Too bad it's just about as boring as mining or belt ratting.
