Welcome to join the fun!



I think you're confused with people who compete for things. We get paid and THEN we kill them. We don't do half-assed bounty work.

If you wanted that dude killed you could have paid us and we'd have done it. We're not going to do a job for free on the assumption that we'll be paid afterward. We're mercenaries, reliable ones, not small time bounty hunters.

I think our total lack of professionalism in this thread might give people the impression that we're just a bunch of weirdos. While we are pretty strange we are actually very effective at killing all kinds of junk, be it entire mining ops in dead end systems with a scout posted one out, dickstar POS towers or other merc alliances.

Recently we made both Failed Diplomacy and Whores In Space look really dumb when they became involved in wars with us of their own free will then we killed a bunch of their stuff.

So yes, pay us your money and will we make the object of your hatred explode to the best of our ability, and our abilities are about as extensive as they get for highsec mercs.



This man speaks the truth. We were lolly gagging around looking for mission runners while they were hunting us with t3's and logi gangs.

Professional group that stays on task!

Recently we have learned that faction warfare people are awful at highsec and their response to highsec PVP is either to fit up some terrible shield thing and instantly explode as soon as you lock them or do anything you can possibly imagine to try and avoid anyone shooting at them in what they percieve to be a "non-PVP zone" like fitting enormous numbers of stabs or flying 15 jumps into a camped lowsec gate and dying rather than fighting their highsec hostiles who were right next door.

So we're definitely willing to accept contracts against FW people. It's astonishing how funny those dudes are.

Friendly bump, for what is Definately the best Merc ad thread.
If not best C&P thread.

I am seriously considering hiring you, just to support you. I just have no idea what the hell I need mercs for.
I'll come up with something soon I hope.

An entertaining use of spare money would be to hire 3 merc corps.

Hire merc A against merc B
Hire merc B against merc C
Hire merc C against merc A

I'm frankly surprised that bored people with too much disposable isk don't hire highsec mercs to screw with eachother/random people for entertainment.

It's standard practice when someone contacts you with a contract you don't really want to do to give a really outlandish quote assuming that the potential client will be deterred by it, the "Aww crap" moment comes when they agree to pay the outlandish fee and now you have to do some terrible crap.

Another good idea would be to set up a really horrifying deathstar POS in highsec,hire one really large, reputable merc alliance to take it down, hire another, less effective group to defend it, a third group to shoot at the defenders and then man the guns yourself.

The war reports alone would be extremely funny, plus highsec mercs hate fighting eachother because it sucks for a variety of reasons but will often still do it to maintain their reputations so yo know you're causing a bunch of people a major pain in the ass.

When people post "I have loads of money what should I do?" threads I'm always either aghast that they couldn't think of anything, or convinced they must not be nearly rich enough to finance that kind of entertaining bizz.

roughly how much would that be?
For the cost of a week

Caldari ones.

Each merc group prices contracts differently so your cost will vary and they may quote you more because they consider it a high risk contract.

The whole thing could cost anywhere between 750 million to 6 billion depending on the quality of the merc groups involved.

You'll find a different type of FW pilot in the Gallente Militia. Especially in Nennamaila.

That seems unlikely. Unwillingness to engage targets in highsec is a pretty uniform trait among people that primarily play in pretty much any kind of space bar wormholes.

Anyway, it's unlikely that we'll be putting it to the test any time soon. We're currently based out of Nourvukaiken and the locals are of a distinctly caldari nature.

2 types of FW pilots. Those that live in lowsec, and the "casuals" who live in highsec and subject themselves to lowsec entry gatecamps on a repetitive basis because they are really just plex farmers. My guess is that you are encountering the casuals. You will be seeing more Caldari FW pilots as we continue to flip their station systems. Twisted

I'd really rather see less of them, they're really obnoxious and stupid with poor language skills, really like racist and homophobic epithets and they whine endlessly when you blow them up/declare war on them/sit in space suspect flagged/send them duel invites.

Basically they never shut up whining about everything you do but are totally unwilling and unable to do anything about it.

They remind me a lot of miners. Except mining corps usually try and kill you when you declare war on them and they save the complaining until after you've actually done something to them, rather than complaining before during and after.
