Interview with Mercenaries Part One - Featuring Max Leadfoot, Buhhdust Princess, and Alekseyev Karrde

I mentioned in my previous post that I had reached out to various other mercenaries in my initial research on the current state of mercenaries. I wanted to see what their perspective on the issue was, specifically from a contract numbers standpoint. When I received their replies and noticed they were all so similar, it really piqued my interest. Why? Why were all the mercenaries in the game seeing similar trends. I decided I was going to prepare a more detailed set of questions that focused on a lot more than just contract numbers, and tossed the idea out to others about doing a live session.

That idea received pretty positive responses, so I went ahead with that plan. I've never done this sort of thing before, and I have to say that there are certainly better interviewers in the EVE community, but it was a lot of fun. Most importantly, this interview showed even more similarities between the mercenary groups, spreading across multiple different sectors of space.

Have a listen and let me know what you think in the comments.
