What merc do you hate so much, that you could... that you could... that you could? Aw, geez, which merc do you hate the most? I think I hate... -if DL mod is included- it's Jubilee, but if not it's... umm... Meltdown! Yes! Meltdown! That's who I hate.

Well, a nice interesting statement. For me Meltdown is a great merc. Cheap with good fighting abilities. Personality rules, too. (In my opinion)

Maybe you would explain W H Y you hate her ? Would be interesting you know.

Mostly I go to like or hate mercs beacause of their personalities and not so much because of their stats or traits. Don't like Raven, MD or Raider. Both to "clean" no edges or something. No passion for the job. But that again refers to taste.

Steven Rothman and Thor - They just irritate me too much. Thor I can put up with, as long as I don't hire him, but I replaced Steven Rothman with Igmus "Iggy" Palkov Smile
Rothman looks like too much of a pansy to have the big bodytype, and Thor just... I don't know.

Meltdown is cool, but I don't have her on my team very often. I Don't care so much about stats, as personality - you've gotta put up with whoever you pic for a reasonable amount of time. Stats improve, personality doesn't.

I know she's cheap, she's got okay stats, but I think she's just a bastard. I mean, her face, such a fat ass, looks angry. When she's out of bullets her words are annoying:
"My goddamn gun run out of goddamn ammo!". She brings Weasel from DG to my mind. The word "goddamn" belongs to their every quote. And yes, her personality kills me. She should be a psycho, and I can't understand how Stephen and Metldown are a pair. All right: Meltdown's quotes are annoying, her voice is annoying, her face is annoying, which means she is annoying.

What do you mean by big bodytype? Stephen's body is normal, not a big body like Steroid's or Grizzly's... and Thor? I love him! He's the best. He's only lousy at explosives. And I forgot to add, I kinda hate those Dolvich's. Ivan is annoying and Igor is even more annoying. I can't stand Igor, but Ivan I can stand as long as I don't hire him.

I don't understand how you hate Maddog. Well, Maddog's not my favourite merc, even if my nickname is Maddog. Still he is one of my favourites. But, mostly, I like Haywire. He's my definite favourite. Very Happy But Razor is kind of irritating.

Stephen "Smorgasborg" Rothman... worst voice and dialogue in the entire game... I would rather hire Elliot to be my point man, than to have Rothman following me around...

Hmm? Elliot's one of my favourite NPC's and I'd like to have him to be hireable. But I wouldn't like him to be my team leader, though... Wink
Yep, Rothman's voice is kind of irritating, but I can stand it and he's stats and experience are good for his price. He sure is cheap. Smorgasbord Rothman is sometimes in my team.

I always find it intersting that people choose there mercs more on personalty then on stats, I guess that's because you can change the stats through your adventure but the personalty stays the same from beginning to end. Infact that might be something to add to JA3 a personalty that changes based on how you use your merc. Oh well I always just though that was strange thats all.

I think it's one of the coolest things about JA2, and a testament to the great writing and design. It really shows how much personality the Mercs have... that you make your choices based on that!

It's one of the reasons I keep people like Hamous around... "Me see dem! Me see da naughty man!"

To say nothing of Carlos. "Do not move, and no one will die!" "Santa Maria... she protects me!"

if you want to recruit a boring merc, liven them up by making them psycho.
I used ProEdit to "psyche-up" the team I intended to recruit in the S.O.G. campaign, to make a more trigger-happy Nam experience. Amusing & disturbing to hear solemn guys like Len just lose it with an automatic weapon.
For Meltdown, I gave her Psycho + "large body type" - F'ing hilarious!

Have you realized that Meltdown has the face of one of the game developers (like Dr Q for example). It is just a real life face and I like the irony to put yourself on the screen with some pretty rough character features. I also don't like her quotes very much but she is a good merc. When I went for a "six imported guys at the start and no-one else" game in UB, she was for sure in my team.

I never hire Reaper and I do not like Ivan. Igor is ok but not more. Biff is the most useless merc imo. Flo is a lousy merc but kinda nice as a team mascot esp when you have Gaston around (he really gets a kick when she finishes off a baddie).

Personality development: for sure on my wishlist for JA3..

Well, her stats are okay, but so what? She's cheap, I don't care. I don't hire the mercs only for stats, for their personality too. Like Haywire and Razor, they're stats aren't the best stats on the game, but their personality is so colorful, that they're must-haves. BTW, Haywire learns fast. Sometimes I have problems with Razor, but I can keep him around since Haywire likes it.

Stephen got outstanding stats for that cheap merc, but he is as gay as that tattoo-maker, so I can`t stand him.

He even beats Biff in hating. Judging from your posts Stephen is the most hated mercenary in the whole game. I'm wondering no one posts here: "I hate Biff." My brother hired Biff and put him swimming so long that he'd drown. That happened.

I hate Larry the most. Mainly because I hired him, trained him up, then his stats went all to hell.
I gave him all the booze I could find and he still fell to pieces. I finally sent his drug addled ass back home and hired Flo. :angry:

The point with Roachburn is to NOT give him any booze, keep him away from large med kits and generally anything that can be misconstrued as a drug.
I've heard of people doing this successfully but as for myself it's just too much ass wiping. That's a shame, Larry seems like he could really shape up to be a pretty good merc.

I don't particularly like Razor or Haywire, even though they have great potential. I've hired them before and know that their marksmanship improves very quickly. I have also succesfully completed the game with them (well, Razor at least). However, their personal atttributes (Health, Agility, etc.) are just plain mediocre, and hardly improve as time passes, and their personalities/voices are annoying. Both of them sound like illiterate rednecks.

They are cheap and cost-effective, though, if you know how to use them properly and have a little patience (they are still bad shots in the beginning of the game). They just don't suit my temperament.

And Meltdown, with her screeching voice and profanity-laced quips, comes across as a harpy (unfortunately she also reminds me of an annoying loudmouth I know). I avoid her at all costs.

Have to disagree with you there. Razor especially, but also Haywire provide me with a little comic releif as well as being very quick learners. I am loath to fire anyone and pretty often Haywire and Razor get whacked sooner or later.
Their most annoying thing to me is the psycho full auto bursts. I've learned to deal with this in several ways and find that aspect now a sort of interesting challenge.

I hate Biff and Flo as well. Happy now? Right then moving on.

Stephen: just annoys the hell out of me.

Buns: voice and personality are irritating. Also, she went psycho on me and shot a bad guy (dead), my IMP(critical), and a civillian (dead). Gave her her walking papers as soon as the battle was over.

Maverick, Rokkr, pay attention what you write in your posts.
Miguel doesn't forget it's Dimitri.
Buns is not a psycho, but Buzz is definitely a psycho. Guess, she gone crazy when he and Lynx broke up. Very Happy

I agree you on Razor, he's annoying and he's uglyness is extreme, at least I think so.
But, Haywire is cool and also my favourite, too.

Strange. When I hire them, with me they almost never die. I mean, Haywire almost never dies. Razor has his skill getting killed.

From her accent, I'd say Ira is a New Yorker, probably from Brooklyn. The Brooklyn accent can be grating for those who are unaccustomed to it. I also get the impression, somehow, that she's Jewish (it's probably the name. Ira was the name of King David's chief priest in the Old Testament. It's also a masculine name, which fits Ira Smythe's tomboy image).

As for the ethnicities/origins of the other locals:

Dimitri: might he perhaps be...Russian? Wink
Miguel/Carlos: Latinos!

Maddog, Dynamo, Shank: all sound like norteamericanos. Maddog is a Southerner. Shank's from the Midwest, and Dynamo...who knows? Chicago, perhaps?

Looks like Arulco has a very international population.
