Suggestion, Most Valuable Merc

Most Valuable Merc

Clicking on a Merc's Chat Message or Mail Message will bring up the character interaction menu (Inspect, Whisper, Mail, etc), add to this a "Most Valuable Merc" Button. Clicking on it will list the Last 100 Guilds they got a Top 3 Finish in (including their own).

When this character uses Raid Finder, if one of these Guilds has open/ password protected Merc Slots available, they will have a MVM in silver next to their Guild Name.

If the character joins the Raid, they will have MVM after their name in the Raid Leaderboard.

Since Top 3 can be due to poorly run Raids, a character can remove any Guild from their MVM list, but can only add by getting a Top 3 Finish (This includes GG Ties).

MY PERSONAL OPINION
Venan seems split on the Merc issue.

The Default for LEGS Raid is 7 Merc Slots with no Password. This seems to encourage Mercs to drop by the LEGS Raid and say "Hi".

But Venan's only official statement is (Bold added for emphasis):

Little_Mike wrote:There are also some common complaints such as the skunk merc issue. We will implement something in the next client update (v1.6.1) to mitigate this issue. We recommend only opening up merc slots when absolutely necessary since mercs generally have a lower efficiency. You can also password protect your raid so only people you want can join your raid. https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?p=14933#p14933


Why is the default not 0 Merc Slots? Why does the Manage Guild page not include a "Default Password"? Only Venan knows.

What did they actually implement to mitigate the issue? Don't remember anything that generally improved mercing, just the PM P2 issue.
