Demon Spawn, or, where the heck do all these merc come from??

Recommended Posts

I am having a devil of a time with all the bloody mercs out there. It seems like every time I jump in system there is a merc chasing a diplomat. I get to watch the whole bloody gory mess unfold while watching the HJ meter slowly creep up. And I get blamed for it and lose ep.

The diplomat did not log flight plans with me. I just happened in system when the dip got plastered. Why doesn't the dip get a bloody escort before roaming around all God's known space into hostile territory. You'd think they bloody well knew that there were mercs out there with as many of them that get destroyed....

No matter how many mercs I waste they keep comming back. They are pesky vermin. Is there a way to eliminate or hamper their spawning?

Fighters, if you have them. Launch and order to attack the mercs. When the mercs attack the fighter either let them duke it out or have the fighters high tail it back to escort the CC and you take out the offensive merc.

Okay. Now I know why their tac designation is "DIP"....

I was flying past, what was it, "Baran"? The merc star-station in the Credian quadrant. Guess who shows up? A diplomat.

Not unlike watching a suit and tie executive walk into the Bronx at midnight with a $100 bill taped to his back.
