Default Be a mercenary!

In another thread the use of mercenaries was discussed, and as i already posted there; why not take it a step further and offer yourself and your army (maybe a small, limited army) as mercenary and let people hire you to help take down a fortress?

Would this be fair in regards to current game mechanics?
Would you like to be a mercenary, with your only loyalty being that to gold?
Is it a good suggestion?

Anyway since the other thread was about mercenary troops for hire i thought this deserved its own thread.

If you have to take down a fortress you might need a big army. Also I dont see why anyone would want to hire someone else. First of all, if they actually do have enough money to hire someone why dont they just attack themselves with their own money. If they have the money to hire an army, im sure theyll have the money to pay for their casaulties. Also, it would make them look bad in front of the enemy.
I wish there was some kind of an assassin feature though... Although there's noone to assassinate. Wait, maybe heroes? Although it depends on how hard it is to make them.

I could see how this works, for instance you might hire mercenaries if you only have a small portion of your army attacking because they are at the other side of the world map. Would also allow for a unique gameplay where players can focus on fighting than building up. Of course the mercenaries would need some home base though to train new units and actually allow the player to play in MMORTS mode.

It takes time and effort to build up an army and more time to get it skilled, also i dont doubt that many people will not find waging war easy, paying a merc to do so may change the tide of battle, and also it would increase the odds if you too were to attack also, 2 armies vs 1?

We plan to have transfer of resources between players, so this is definitely possible.

What is best about this is after they pay you to kill someone else, you ignore that and betray your hirers and kill them all,,, loot the dead!

Sorry, the Orc race has gotten the best of me, I'm starting to think and talk Orcish.

Nooo, a good mercenary is the one that sticks with a contract, good opinion is very important, no new jobs without it. Am I right? of course I am hehe
