I am sorry if this is not the appropriate place but I've been out of the loop and don't exactly know where to find the answer.

Can anyone explain to me in a few lines what happened to MC and why they disbanded? Did they become something else? Are there any good 0.0 Merc Corps out there that replaced what they did so well?

It's a shame they're gone.

quick summary

huge coalition attacks bob and pushes them back to 1 region

MC says erm well... and goes independant.

MC takes their area of space and kicks out bob

Huge coalition is eventually defeated by bob and it breaks up and goes home which surprised even some bob fanbois who thought we were watching the dieing days of bob.

Bob attacks MC

MC die.

MC embarked on the ambitious Tortuga project in which they, KIA, Daisho, Outbreak, and a few other entities sought to carve out an independant Period Basis from which to run their merc outfits.

BoB reacted to this unfavorably and when the war turned around MC bore the brunt of their wrath. Leadership disagreements followed by a disappointing contract performance vs Smashkill resulted in their disbanding. The other tortugans also split, with only KIA and Daisho continuing to hold space as Goonswarm allies in the newly "liberated" Geminate region.

That's the short version anyway.

No mega cap fleet merc units have emerged in their place that i'm aware of, however Atomic Battle Penguins, TNT/Noir., SMERG, and REPO have risen to fill the void left by KIA and company.

Thanks for that. So MC were defeated by their own masters, classic.

So is there any alliance that resembles MC in what they did today?

Thanks for the quick answer. I find it difficult to follow all the politicla changes and although you would think CAOD would be a good place to do that, it's so full of **** finding the real information through the drama.

Thank you again!

PS. Sad that MC is gone though, they were good at what they did!

Yes, we all liked Seleene's banners on CAOD announcements, and their forum signatures, alas ... these have passed. :(

I'm also shocked something new wasn't born out of it. I mean, they did have a good number of caps and supercaps, so where did they go?

I was hoping to find the name of a capable 0.0 merc corp so I could hire them!

Oh well, guess these days are over!

The good ones joined BoB.
The bad ones didn't join BoB.
The very bad and useless ones even left the game -Krall Amarr.

Some of the good ones are still pirating/involved in FW.

Not that many. BDCI is still active as a corp. They were one of the founding corps of Requiem Alliance who tried to invade Fountain until PL beat them up (hi five). SERA is still active as a corp AFAIK, ETNY, I have no idea, FRICK is still doing something, not sure what, CONIN is currently sleeping, Dri Kulsane (CONIN CEO) is my real life boyfriend, and he is doing my vacuuming as we speak, most of the better known CONIN pilots joined BDCI, a few went to pirate corps, and even fewer joined SNIGG.
So, not very informative but thats what I know.

I personally feel Eve has become less rich in Character as of late...

When I first started, ASCN getting crushed by BOB, reading Inno's 0.0 experiment, the epic struggle between UK and CVA, Goons and co vs evil overlord Bob etc...

Lot's of character and appealing to especially new players.

Now, even a Titan kill doesnt surprise anyone anymore, large alliances crumble and their ashes blown with the wind... within a matter of days.

We need less "we just want good fights" conflicts, but we need serious E-hatred, there should be a nemisis, a looming threat and above all some sense of E-honor that pulled so many of us into Eve and captivated us for years.

I miss the figureheads posting on the forums with their personality cults formed around them.

this is a really good post, and I feel the same, there isnt enough drama lately at all, some mega-wars, corp thefts and maybe an invasion or two would be nice, but its all seemed to stagnate the last 3 months or so

FRICK came to lowsec and murdered the **** out of some gatecamps for a bit. Not seen 'em recently, so they're probably murdering the **** out of people in an entirely different region.

Mad props to Constantinee, that man loves to fight. Extra mad props to Psychorabbit for suiciding his Mach into a fight when I was with Dark Water. Top fights.
