Dr. Q. I've never played a game of Jagged Alliance 2, or SOG'69 without him. He has a very lovely way of speaking, and always seems to have an inner calm about him.

He's also the best butt kicking medic I've ever had. Despite his 66 marksmanship, he preforms as though it were much higher. Also, since I am a huge fan of stealth and close quarters combat, its not hard for me to raise his marksmanship anyways.

When I first had him knock someone out, steal his beaten up old pistol, and had him go on a killing spree with a glock and a desert eagle, I knew I had a keeper.

***

Since playing SOG'69. Igor has become another one of my favorites. I got him two modified Pythons, and it was very easy for me to imagine him as a Russian cowboy.

*Igor draws his handgun and fires it at an enemy sniper on a rooftop, hitting him in the head and causing him to fall off*

"Rock und roll!" (thats what it sounds like)


One thing I love about Jagged Alliance games. Characters aren't funny because of what they say, but how they say it.

I'm sure Ivan must be very proud of his nephew.

***

My favorite from the series is Ellio from JA1. He moves REALLY fast, and can throw grenades and plant explosives like noone's business. His 21 marksmenship was never an issue for me, he more than makes up for it with his physical stats and uncanny speed.

Boy, that's a tough one. I guess I have to go with Grizzly - I just love his attitude, and his large weapons expertise is nice towards end-game. Buzz is a very close second, though I have a disturbing attraction to her...

Heh, I searched through forum, nice topic;)

My fav merc is Scully, mate. Jack of all trades and master of blades.

And yes, I'm surprised. Strange no one mentioned him:)

Buzz. How can one resist that crazy lady. And the ability to run into the middle of a firefight with an RPK-74 firing from the hip on auto and come out on top is quite nice. She is the one reason my tactics dramatically altered from using snipers to turning up with as many LMGs and AW mercs as possible.

Magic is the greatest.

I like Grunty, Hitman and a couple of others, among them Biff, Gasket, Gumpy and Larry.

How could you people have not chosen Stephan?

He's professional, night ops, the perfect mid-late game killer!

And ,of course, treinable in every skill and attribute, plus he start at level 5 and asks for only $10.000.

Only Thor could match him.

But now we get to the splitting point: his personality.

His proffessional talk sound great to me, but that's my opinion.

My top 5 mercs are:
1. M.D
2. Vince
3. Ivan
4. Igor
5. Gus

I like M.D. He's a good medic, learns fast, and with a little training turns into a superb sniper. I also liked his personality: He's an idealistic kid in this crazy world of hired killers... but damn he learns how to be a tough guy quickly. Vince also was very likeable. I liked his enthusiasm. "YES SIR!"

Ivan and Igor work so great together, even though Ivan is a tough old cuss who's likely to swear at me and talk about taking everything for himself in russian. Igor I liked very much. His speech when Ivan dies makes me very sad and reach for the quick load button.

Gus is just Gus, and that's why he's awesome. Also he likes using big guns on burst fire, which I like ver much. "The name's tarballs. GUS tarballs!"

Oooh. That's tricky.

Overall, I think I'd have to say Ivan. A little tweak in the XML and he carries around an RPK with a GP-30 attached, denying large areas of the map to the enemy. And the constant muttering in Russian - complete with Cyrillic captions - amuses me to no end. And what the hell is his positive exclamation? It sounds a lot like "Starve!".

As far as the lynchpin goes, though, it's Len. Hard for me to imagine liberating Arulco without the steady core of the team that is Corporal Anderson.

Playing the demo I loved Shadow and Ivan and Shadow. I hated Vicky and Bubba. But now that as I've played with every Merc, I like Nails and Trevor best. Remember this is not about the best mercs, but about the best liked mercs.

mercs i like the most:
Nails, Trevor, Thor, Wolf.

mercs i like the least:
Conrad!, Fidel.

My votes are all about who I like the best. My mad Russian is far and away the cornerstone of my capture/hold teams, while Len is just the most rock-solid professional soldier I've ever had the pleasure to employ. He's good with an automatic weapon, physically fit enough to carry a full combat load and sneak in with the backup team, and brings valuable experience to my militia-training efforts. He's a good man, a better solider, and certainly deserving of a higher rank than Corporal.

I seem to gravitate towards the following mercs most of the time:

Spider. Gotta love a doctor with Stealth and Night Ops.
Grunty. One word - "Superlative!"
Cougar. Best MERC merc, period.

Since 1.13 came along I also like to hire Tex, he cracks me up, plus he's camo.

Shadow, Wolf, Ivan, Vicki, Red, Haywire, Maddog.. There's so many. I love most of them. But I have just found a new love! My current favourite merc of all time (although he's not exactly a merc is he) is

Devin. I'm just a sucker for the accent. Very Happy

well ultimate team for me (thorough this post, ultimate means "not-so-bad-but-as-cheap-as-possible-and-yet-ultra-cool" )

Razor, Haywire, Dimitri, MadDog, Blood, Barry, Hamous

(Every merc in the game can achieve the "perfect merc" status, just give it some time) (i usually get to kill deidranna having Ira at lvl 7 without fighting a single battle)

Quotes:

" I'm here, i ate everybug on the way, there were many "

" Blood's Bleeding Blood "

" They're trying to kill me. But i am, Professional! "

" I'll be boss in no time "

" Yes boss man "

Others: Steroid, Scope, Trevor, Reaper. (IMO Reaper is the secretive one, not shadow, shadow's just sneaky, reaper is the cold crazed and yet very "professional" killer).

I think i must have finished JA2 like 15 times, and yet i only played like 7 or so of AIM's mercs, only used reaper, gus, ivan, shadow, scope, lynx, stephen, trevor, steroid, barry, bull, MD, wolf, fox, blood. "tried" some others for like 10 mins...

Fav Merc (as 2 other people said): "Maddog"

The 3 B's. Barry. An ethical killer; can't have a game without him. Prefer Buns to Fox these days. & Biff! Yes I have only discovered just how fun it is to use Biff extensively. He cracks me up (and lets face it kiddo's most of us would be just as scared in a real firefight).

There's just something about Hamous that makes me absolutely love him. The way he talks, mostly.
*A horde of enemies appears, one by one*
Hamous: "Veery baaad, veery baaad, veery baaaad..."
*Hamous drops the first one with the PSG-1 I gave him*
Hamous: "Veery GOOOOOD!"
Very Happy

Then there's Igor. "Barbaric! As Tolstoy wrote: 'War, what is it good for!'" cracks me up. As does "I salivate in anticipation!" Kicks ass at night, too.

I also love Red and Devin just for their accents. I'm just such a sucker for Scottish and Irish accents. (largely thanks to so many cool movies they've appeared in)

Malice is also really hilarious to me, for some reason. (see sig.) He's just so wonderfully weird.

The list could go on, but I'll leave it to this for now. Razz

The most named ones are good: Kyle Simmons, Ivan Dolvich, Carl Sheppards, and so on... But if we don't want to choose a superman (The top line descending by price) I'd say Nails is kinda good, and his personality is also fantastic

Lines like:

Hmm... having just to choose one merc as favourite is harder to pick than a broken nose. However, here are my selection of favourite mercs & they would be Trevor, Hamous, Razor, Haywire [Time to kick some ass!] Grunty, Ivan & Igor.

Think I place them that way
1Mike - high stats, can do pretty much everything, fun to play around.
2Magic - Great character, good stats, nice humour
3Lynx - not the best stats but best mrk and nice guy to have in the team
4Shadow - quite stealthy, when bleeding cares more for trace leaving than his own state.
5Scully - like the image of the "surfer dude" of his...
6Ivan - I liked him more when he spoke entirely in Russian, he's still fun but takes a lower place...
7Reaper - kinda philosophical, religious too...
