Though calling them "mercs" is a bit of a stretch - as about 90% of all their wars were never paid for by anyone!

I'd have to say Repo Circa 2005 or Noir. Before they joined MC. somewhat recently and went null. Both always reputable and great groups.

So throughout eve history who is the best high sec merc group to have existed and why?



I've had the pleasure of flying with or dying to many of the mercs out there in the game. Here's my list of those IMO who have shaped the mercing game as we know it in High Sec and deserve mention ...


Alliances


1) Mercenary Coalition [MC]

AFAIK they were the actual first alliance that gathered PVPers under one banner to merc. They set the standard for mercing in-game and turned it into an actual business. They were professional, organized and would actually drop corps from the alliance to dispatch them for a client when the whole alliance wasn't needed.


2) Privateer Alliance [PA]

The Original War Dec Alliance. Hated so much by CCP, a dev was quoted saying they were out to get rid of the alliance and their type of game play. CCP s[ecifically nerfed their style of play (P-NERF) making war dec costs compounding cost wise and thus hobbling war decs with astounding isk prices. Last war dec cycle before the nerf saw OVER 500 war decs Shocked


3) The 0rphanage [AD0PT]

War decing morphed into this alliance and station humping and trade route killing was mastered by these guys. They were made famous for a kill that destroyed 74 PLEX (At the time about $1250 US). CLICKY



Corporations


1) m0o Corp [MOO]

CCP changed the game mechanics due to these guys. Their indiscriminate killing spree in yulai (Center of the game at that time) made them infamous. They were the first to tank gate guns. CCP upped gate gun damage and CONCORD response because of these pioneers.


2) Guiding Hand Social Club [GH-SC]

I'm sure these guys are the reason CCP made corporate hangar access safe guards as we now know them. They were made famous for espionage and theft, these guys stole 13 Billion isk in assets (At the time about $1600 US). CLICKY


3) Captain Morgan Society [EBII]

Probably one of the best small gang/Solo PVPers from the past.

BAW imo..though there are many who follow closely. Alliances come and go..what's hard about choosing is most, at some point or another, have all had the same members. Mercs get around. Most merc players have been in most, if not all of the merc alliances/corps at one point. Except maybe Raz and Tearz..who have pretty much always been Devils.

If I had a nickel for every time someone said women don't play eve, I'd have a bag of nickels to whack the next person who said it..

If I remember correctly there's a few wars with marmite where you gloated your ass off and we killed 3 to 10 billion isk of your crap while in pod repo.....

And clearly 7 guys do not outnumber an alliance but we sure out-thought-strategied-piloted-smarted all your tactics.

Of all time? The 0rphanage; a ragtag band of random murderous corporations who could band together at a moments notice and work cohesively (somehow). The whole recruitment method was pay 50m a week and your corp joins, or you just join solo into MBALM.

Not quite sure why a disorganized group that crumbled the first time real pressure was brought to bear on it would be considered "the best" ever...

But I guess they did kind of pioneer the modern hub-humping strategy?


I'll vote for Snatch Victory, with Break-A-Wish in a not too distant second place - Just based on my personal experience fighting assorted merc groups over the years, they were the scariest.



I would also go with Snatch Victory, but I am a bit biased.
