If we get to vote for anyone, I want to throw in a vote for some of the worthwhile of my game youth:

EYL (the original)
Lone Trek Scrap and Salvage


Those guys did great work back when this game was about fighting.

From my personal experience I would say the god squad was in the top ten at least. The CEO screamed at me lots, but all in all it was exciting.

They aren't anymore? What happened? Sorry, was pretty out of touch with both the game and C&P.

I've just been looking at some of the top merc groups I know about on zkillboard and it makes interesting reading. Marmite have been displaced from the top spot by a long margin now, if you go by performance so far in 2016. They are still somewhat of a force, but to a lesser extant than they were in previous years.

There are many flawed ways of measuring performance based on zkillboard stats.

Total ISK Destroyed so far in 2016

1st - Vendetta Mercenary Group - 1.75 Trillion
2nd - Complaints Department - 1.27 Trillion
3rd - P I R A T - 957 Billion
4th - Archetype. - 439 Billion
5th - The Marmite Collective - 373 Billion

Total Points Killed so far in 2016

1st - Complaints Department - 126,376 points
2nd - P I R A T - 125,647 points
3rd - Vendetta Mercenary Group - 123,936 points
4th - Archetype. - 114,413 points
5th - The Marmite Collective - 87,881 points

Total Kills so far in 2016

1st - P I R A T - 10,725
2nd - Complaints Department - 7,945
3rd - The Marmite Collective - 6,000
4th - Vendetta Mercenary Group - 5,911
5th - Archetype. - 4,321

Overall I'd say Complaints Department, P I R A T, and Vendetta all seem to be doing significantly better than Marmite, with Archetype performing perhaps slightly better than Marmite despite having less than half the member count.

Sorry if I missed anyone.

That all depends on how you look at it and what the client's wishes are. Marmites banned the trade hubs (6 months+ ago or so), where most of the others get their kills. We actually hunt our targets down (even in frigates). Want max damage, yes, then you have a point. Just like we use to do the last 5 years, but after a few years it became boring as hell.

Wont do any name calling (Complaints Department), but some are whoring on another merc alliance's kills 24/7 too. Blink

it would be nice to see the percentage of isk destroyed from a merc alliance based on clients paying a fee.

Alot of merc wars are generated internally from members in the merc alliance wanting to just dec somebody

And 90% of your kills are in Dodixie or Jita. Or are you saying Zkillboard is incorrect ? I dont mind you doing it, if you think it's fun, but dont think people are stupid and dont see.

Come back when you've killed 29 trillion, top 10 killer on ZKB, been running for 6 years and haven't been disbanded once. Then you play with the big boys. P

OK so tell me how P45 managed to destroy 7% of your total kills in the small time it existed?
And why we have better numbers all across the board, for an Alliance that's 80% the size of yours?

P45 is what you wanted your alliance to be with Marmite 2.0

Come back when you could say you were undocked for all of that... No.... You can't say you were, cause you remain docked up now... Continue to stay docked.. Using your alliance like tools to inflate your own self worth, posting is a crutch for your ego.... I think you personally lack the ability to play the game it's sad.
