Socratic was to Arnon what Holey is to Amarr. Except that instead of spewing his ego on the forums, it was in Local.

He met his pod doomsday before I had chance at him, sadly.

Anslo made an attempt at being coherent. That's a slight step above Holey who tries not to be coherent imo. Socratic was a very special person who we all chuckle at when we think of that story where he went instant neg 10 Twisted

Socratic actually came back a couple years ago and gone low/nulsec, I could see him log in from time to time when Watchlist was still a thing.

He came to Uedama for like 2 weeks at one point during a war with POHvsMarmite. Literally the only time I ever sat in Uedama (logged off with 4 characters waiting for somebody to jump the gate camp)

I'll be blunt.

None I consider being the best.

But as a recurring phenomenon I'd say those small temporary merc corps that pop up every now and then and wreck havoc for a couple weeks are the most memorable quality wise that I've faced (also some of the worst). Specially those that know how to farm individual wars efficiently for quality fights and not just blob in way to heavy scaring everyone off with mere presense and overwhelming firepower. Depending on why they got hired it might get the job done, but it don't exactly scream skill deserving of the best merc group ever since anyone can do it.

But I'm not a cliƫnt type so I can't really say who in particular is or was the best. I can only judge from being on the receiving end of wardecs by merc groups. And some of those small ones seemed pretty good while they lasted.

The biggest obstacle you'll encounter doing anything is yourself.

I have a Socratic corpse.

I had a valve installed so on particularly sunny days I can pump it up and use it as a lilo.

I have some old socratic killmails...he was fun to wind up and troll and bait into a fight. Sadly it was back before podding was legal, so no corpse for me.

The dead swans lay in the stagnant pool. They lay. They rotted. They turned Around occasionally. Bits of flesh dropped off them from Time to time. And sank into the pool's mire. They also smelt a great deal.

Wasn't he the guy in the the Sisters of EVE system that would constantly lose dumb **** to can flippers?

They were relatively organized in a 'we're all in teamspeak- shout if you get in trouble' kind of way. Which is helpful if you frequent Jita => Amarr and back again. The Rens crew was pretty good, not that most of you know who those dudes are these days.

As for that, I suppose - but they didn't have enough organization to hunt anything off of an undock. I got wardecced by them a few times - never saw one in space because I didn't live anywhere near Jita or Amarr...so it wasn't particularly scary nor awe inspiring.

I'm sure they were terrifying if you undocked from jita into their sebo-ed insta-blapping fleet Blink

Yeah, Alpha Bar. They fell apart after Ace Gunnery's crew fell apart to.


Dodixie had a pretty good thing going in the Dodi Liberation channel, and the Dodixie Peace Fleets.

Amarr had a channel as well but I for the life of me can't remember the name.
