Most newer players won't remember many of the older groups, the game has changed so much over the years so it's hard to assess who is best.

For me the best merc group pound for pound was Cult of Cthulhu and later Omniscient Order. While CoC was a small group it was very well organised and at the time very innovative with ship setups/fleet comps. Omnor was built from the ashes of CoC and became a bit of a celebrity eve who's who with famous pilots such as Mitchman, Jamesw, Drunkenone, Noobjuice, Altai Seeker etc all flying under the banner.

I had some of my best times and fights flying with those crews and learned so much. There is a cool end video to Omnor here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHOyQ0k7jPA


I first flew against MC when they had a contract against Force of Evil, by that time they were expanding out of high sec and as Seleene and other old school MC guys will tell you it was to be their coming out party - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbVIM8fdog8

I joined them some time later when Eternity Inc was formed as the fifth corp, they were the most professional and organised group I've ever flown with and come a close second for me. I'm so glad they've reformed now as eve was missing a true powerhouse mercenary group, I'd love to fly with them again some time in the future.

As for current merc groups, I flew with CD awhile ago and have come across most of the current crop of empire mercs. While they all have their pro's and con's I don't think they carry the same WOW factor as the three groups I've mentioned above. Vendetta probably have the potential but aside from blops onto JF's don't seem to be overly active outside the Jita area (maybe that's changed as I've not been too active in the last six months). Would also add that in general they have good members but they also have one absolute utter t*** who Ifeel lets them down a bit.

Hey, thanks! Just did a 1 month subscription to see if I can come back to the game now. NJ not playing anymore, eh? If NJ felt rusty, I´m 3x that I gather after being gone from the game for 4-5 years at least. Last time I logged in, I noticed they had changed my beloved Armageddon significantly. I don´t dare to think what else has changed :) I guess I will be skill reading and ship spec reading for a few days now.

Mitch!!! Good to see you back. I've been a bit inactive myself, NJ is in my current corp but he's currently picking up the ladies with his tractor and not in eve. I'll see if I can find a way to get a message to the old boy. Yeah RIP the gankageddon! I'll drop you a line ingame, welcome back!

I remember fighting Snatch victory. They thought we were an industrial corp until we had a mad punch up with them and kept coming back until we were double out numbered.

Greorik had a laugh with us after he jumped his curse in to engage then suddenly realized we switched primary to him.

Even Babarr actually laughed and said something in french like he normally does

In my opinion the corp where someone was willing to camp me at an off trade hub station for 12 hours a day for a few weeks... "cup of conkrete" the other year I think.

best ever mercs were Somali Coastguard Authority


it was original and one off
although after it closed it did spawn several copy cats
notably by fybes and kanibal kane

how many other corp can say that


...bringing traditional Somali Coastguard services to the citizens of New Eden


Jambo!

Coastguarding for one year bring great riches and many customers delighted with our traditional Somali services. In fact 5,424 customers contributed to our village fund.

Now time come to sell dinghies and take up other jobs. I buyed two new stud-beasts for my Hyena-breeding! Very costly beasts but my bitches like it heh! So this is my fortune now and I settle down with my captive women also.

Maybe we see you again some day! If Hyena business not so good lol. Till then fly safe!

maybe im a bit nostalgic :)

Somali Coastguard Authority is a pretty good use of pop culture. It's edgy, relevant, and sets a lot of tone for people in the group and outside. And I'm not just saying this because the era of Somali Coastguard Academy I'm familiar with had Cannibal Kane as its personal benefactor, like some kind of orphanage for wee little Somali pirates.

I have no idea who you are or who you represent. And as your too scared to post with your main I doubt you would install any fear or respect from me.

All I can say is ty for the free publicity you bring vmg.

I agree. The fight they had with just a logistic fleet was hilarious
