Who we are
We are a group of veteran and elite captains from all walks of life, formed into a tight-knit fighting unit, dedicated to winning wars wherever we go. We strike unannounced and leave just as fast. We are BHG, and you won't see us coming.
Why 'Battlegroup Mercury'?
What is behind this name? Some say it's a nickname we earned in battle: we show up quickly, are deadly even in small numbers, and are harder to track down and even harder to capture. Some say it's because we strike from our base on the inner planet Mercury, hidden even from the AI Council. What is the truth? That is for us to know, and you to find out...if you dare to join us.
We are a group of pirates. We share goals, but we do not have to share styles. As such, Command makes no recommendations or prohibitions against playstyles (onlining, raiding, etc.). We will make every effort to support our members against any aggression or retaliation they encounter; however, captains are advised that their own actions are at their own risk, and the fleet cannot guarantee safety from retribution.
We are an active war fleet, and we need active pirates. Inactivity of over 1 week without prior notice (for reasons such as vacation, etc.) will result in a kick/re-invite. Re-invites will remain active for a further one week, after that you need to request an invite. Command is not unforgiving, but we cannot afford to have a fleet full of inactives if we want to win the type of wars we plan to fight.
As a war fleet, we expect our captains to become stronger. Naturally, this means research. Command will periodically (every 2 weeks) conduct a review of the stats level and progress of all affiliated pirates. Those not making sufficient progress as deemed by Command will be given notice, and then upon a second inadequate result will be asked to consider transferring to our training fleet.
HP is Life, at least in wars. We want to level the fleet as much as possible, and this requires contributions from all pirates. We do not believe in “crunchy” and “squishy” as meaningful adjectives. Higher levels always mean higher research. To this end: attack, attack, attack (or deep belt, deep belt, deep belt, or foray, foray foray)! We want to see you gaining levels and advancing the fleet at all times.
As a war fleet, we seek to have the most advanced research equipment and weapons that money can buy. Any and all donations to the fleet armory are appreciated. Once donated, equipment of lesser rarity may be liquidated to facilitate the purchase of higher-level gear.
Fleet taxes will remain at 10% excepting a dramatic unforeseen change. Donations to the fleet vault will be used to acquire labgear and VR-and-up equipment.
