Been fun fighting this war. I lost more than I killed
and I got no problem with that because the Merc coalition
is a bunch of skilled fighters.

I didnt know much about the mercs before the war, but Kudos
goes out to Seleene. You have introduced you coalition as
a mature, and team oriented group of people that takes care of buisniss.

If both parties are so happy about the war, wouldn't that result in the MC getting fewer contracts in the future since the target is only going to enjoy it? ^^

(unless of course the target is the one hiring you guys .. ;))

TBH... when you declare war on a Pirate Alliance... (be it that we did lose a lot) we got what we yearn for. I like PvPing more than I do NPCing or anything else. We do have... well, a lot of nOObs that as you can see lost us a lot of BS by running around solo thinking they're hardcore. And I was noticing that most of the people that died, wore WCS. More people die wearing WCS than don't when they aren't wearing WCS. Kinda a weird twist there. Anyways, to me both sides won. Kill-wise, we lost yes. but it's a game... if you at least had a tiny bit of fun it was worth it. Props to MC, much respect!

There's a funny twist on this whole "who won, who lost" thing: to really know that, you'd have to know the starting goal not of the MC, but of the people who hired them.

If their goal was to break FOE, they lost.

If it was to spend a ton of isk so MC and FOE pilots could have fun for a month -- then we're all winners!

Very Happy

Awesome war, MerCoal!
RL kept me away from eve more than usual, unfortunately, but at the same time it was one of the more challenging and fun times in EvE for me..ever!

It is clear that this was one of the most successful wars for you in terms of ships destroyed, but it looks like we gave you one hell of a run for your money! :) This makes me very proud!

After a few minutes of number-crunching:
You increased your prior kill record of 409 ships to 1,149, which is 2.8x
We increased your prior loss record to 219 from 45, which is 4.8x

You destroyed 13.47 billion isk worth of ships, which is 6.2x your previous record of 2.18 billion isk worth.
What would your losses be in isk using the same calculation?

I can't wait for the video, I'm sure it will have an unusual tone because of the sheer mass and volume of ships that were destroyed on both sides!

Good work, nothing but respect, and thank you, MerCoal, for the best time i've ever had in eve!

If you look closely on the page with more details, you'll see that it says how much we lost isk-wise Very Happy Total Losses: 219 Total ISK : 1,386M. So there you go Very Happy

LOL!! Mari, I think you just did more math on this than I could ever want to! Very Happy

I can only speak for myself, but I don't really think of it in terms of how we've done before. As I said in my statement, this was actually a war. It's easy to look at the numbers and try to say, "Oh look at all the ganks!" but the truth of the matter is that FoE made us work for a large majority of those kills. There were a lot of 3 on 3 type fights that were just awesome.

Our losses are represenative of the fact that we had an enemy that actually came out to fight. We were more than happy to fight back! We fought outnumbered, we ganked, we blobbed up, we did hit and runs, we crashed gate camps... it was a great war with which to forge our newly formed Coalition into a sharpened sword.

As for the video... ugh!! We have footage from about ten different pilots. The sheer volume and quality of it is fantastic. The only problem is that Leafo and I are commited to trying to make something that will not be just one explosion after another and keep the viewer's interest over a 15-20 minute period. That means that a lot of good clips are going to be left out in order to make the overall product flow better. It may not be what everyone wants or expects, but we're going to try like hell to show the different types of fighting that takes place in a war like this in Empire. Cool

ah, thank you cabadrin. i even saw that page, but forgot about it when i was making my analysis, hehe.

You lost 1.39 billion isk worth of ships, which is 2.7x more than your previous loss record of .51 billion. Still much less than what you destroyed of ours, lol.

lest we forget that this is the first time you have all been involved in the same war, so thats one major reason the numbers are so inlfated. udoubtedly, whatever your next contract is, it should really tell a story!

Good work!

Oh, another thought just as i refreshed and read your post, seleene. A lot of us use eve-files, so if there is anyway to allow you to access some of our fraps you'd have even MORE material, LOL.

could this be the first video that requires a "director's cut?" Laughing

Laughing Not only that, I forsee this:
1. Official Release
2. Directors Cut
3. Directors Cut - Extended version
4. Coalition Remix, double disc version
5. The FoE War Bloopers - Never before seen fotage of MC pilots doing crazy stunts with Concord!
6. The Ultimate MC vs FoE Rumble In The Djungle 6-set Veldspar box + sound track. And poster.

I dont want to turn this into a who killed what thread - but i can see from the MC killboard thing report that LEGION only destroyed 5 merc ships. Well thats *******s because i alone was involved in the destruction of more than that and i was only in the war for the odd weekend here and there, my corpmates did a hell of a job carrying me as well as the others and id like to give shouts out to Madgaz, Raggy and Samba in particular who ****ing owned - and they killed way more that themselves, kills are accurate on a killboard not losses, i think youd have to check our killboard for how many of MC we killed and ofc the same way around - no one likes posting losses after all :P

(btw im drunk so my usually outsatnading grammer and sentance structure is probaly somewhat lacking and for this i wholeheartedly aplogise)

If we are missing losses, then let us know about them :). We aim for 100% kill and loss accuracy.

Note: according to the Coalition Killboard, LEGI0N Killed 14 Coalition ships and 4 pods.. Check it here..

1. Were this Coalition or "enemy" BS? Remember your friends were also at war with XETIC..
2. The difference between the Coalition killboard and other killboards is that we want it 100% accurate and I'm sure we are about 95% accurate on both our kills and losses. People not posting their losses are disciplined.
3. If you're missing kills, simply evemail the killmails to one of the coalition CEOs and it will be added.
4. According to the FOE killboard (kills are accurate, right?), you have participated in 3 kills against the merc coalition, look it up here: Weeman's stats on FOE killboard
5. According to the Coalition Killboard, you participated in 4 (!!) kills against us, guess we're more accurate in our losses than the FOE killboard is in their kills... Weeman's kills vs merc coalition on Coalition Killboard. Please also be so kind to add your BB and Arma loss to the FOE killboard, thx. Weeman's losses to Coalition forces

Weeman,

1.) Did Waagaa's post clarify what your corp did and did not do? What the heck link did you click on that showed your corp participated in only five kils?

2.) I know for a fact that the Coalion Killboard is where your leadership goes to get an accurate picture of the war. It is much easier to get eighty-odd pilots to be 99% accurate than the thousand+ of an alliance. We do not need to refer to the FoE Killboard as I assure you it does not contain the information you need. It does not even have all of the kills FoE made against us, much less losses.

3.) Posting losses in the MC is not an option. Those pilots who fail to do so have a very unpleasent time of it on TS. Twisted Evil If you or anyone in your alliance has information that you feel will increase our accuracy, feel free to contact any Coaltion CEO.

4.) Alcohol is bad for you. Very Happy

Not to pick nits, but you might ask Velsharoon about the Taranis he lost in IMK-K1 on 9 March 05 at 21:11 game time. It doesn't appear to be on his stats. I'm sure there are other omissions, but that's to be expected.

Anyway, it's not really what matters. It was great fun and good times all around!

I am not a real experienced eve player, but this war has taught me some valuble lessons(spelling not one of themWink) but any way, I had a f.o.o.k.i.n blast I got in on 3 kills learned about targetting neautrals on accident while in combat..... dang gate guns hurt.But to the MC props yall elite frigs are hard to catch chased 3 of yall around obe for 2 f.o.o.k.i.n hr's was fun.

No. It is not to be expected. If you have a kill or loss mail that we are somehow missing, please send it directly to myself or any other Coalition CEO. Thank you. :)

All MC pilots are under one golden rule: If you get owned, you get owned. Logging off is NOT an option. I cannot speak for other the Coaltion CEOs, but anyone who does it in my corp risks being podded and then booted. Twisted Evil
