From time to time, I admit I get an itch to fire up my account again. But the subscription model just doesn't mesh well with my limited play time, and I just can't justify it to myself. I really like the game though.

Do some trading, use PLEXs.
Finally, my long-term gamble paid off: in 2011, when i was quitting the game, i bought 4m units of Thulium at roughly 2.5k ppu, for a total of 10b.
Now, thulium is getting a rework, and it's worth 17.5k ppu. That's 60b of gain, which, in PLEX-euros, is something like 1800€.

OK, so now I know what a bubbled gate looks and feels like.

Next task: Learn how to bypass one.

If only EVE wasn't like a second job. Things like this make me want to play: https://www.kugutsumen.com/showthread.p ... post549980

Or, at least, none that are fit to be used in polite company.

Imagine sitting in a gridlocked traffic for six hours. Halfway through, you get an announcement on the radio that you and everyone you know are already dead. That's what it was like.

I used to play DAoC (Dark Age of Camelot). DAoC was created by Mythic, before they sold out to EA, and their pvp was absolutely amazing - it's the single biggest reason I can't stand wow pvp at all.

This story reminded me of that pvp. I mean sure, the servers couldn't handle it (EVE is a much smaller game and has much lower capacity for high numbers in the same area), but it reminded me of watching two zergs collide there. For other DAoC vets, imagine a hibzerg (of legendary proportions - most zergs were limited to the 250 members you could have in a battlegroup) crashing into the albzerg in Emain at AMG. Then multiply that by oh, I dunno... a hundred?

And in space. With lasers. And instead of just risking a run back from the bind stone or graveyard, you're risking things that took you months or years of your life to build. Talk about high stakes wagering.

For those who get stuck in the "traffic jam" I can see it being frustrating. But isn't that frustration at least partly caused by not being able to participate?

Heh. If it was done with lasers, lag wouldn't be half as bad.

Alas, modern space warfare is done with drones. So in addition to 4000+ spaceships, the server also has to calculate trajectory, velocity, coordinates, hitpoints, AI settings and other constantly changing parameters for 30000+ combat drones.

After the HED-GP battle, many have wondered how it would have gone if the server did not crap itself.

Now we know.

So, not sure if anyone else brought this up... But, I've been giving the 14day trial a spin and been enjoying things. The pacing is just like Invis said, real laid back, tutorials are helpful (only gripe is not getting a mining laser and having to go buy one, whatevs). I REALLY like the passive skill-up system, especially having a real-deal job and a 2 year old.

But yea, I just had some random GM ping me and ask how I was finding things. That was pretty cool. They weren't very chatty, but I asked if they were a robot and they seemed legit. They were all like 'hey, can I send you an in-game mail with some helpful links?' and I of course, excepted. Once again, can't stress how neat something like that is.

I think I need a new income source. There are too many unfriendly gangs roaming through my ratting haunts these days.

This and system being full at times is the primary reason I moved operations to Amarr relatively quickly after starting playing. Also, Passionario, if you're looking for a decent income source that's low maintenance, Planetary Interaction has been treating me well so far. It took a long time to figure out where to set up at and nail down the details of having a functional colony, but after that, straight money print.

I've dabbled in PI at one point, but it involved too much clicking and relogging for my tastes, and the profits (after the 15% tax and shipping the stuff to Jita) weren't all that impressive. Besides, the interceptor gangs are just as happy to kill an Epithal as an Ishtar.

On the one hand, I respect CODE for the way they(Or t least their site) roleplays.

On the other, I just wanna roam and countergank the fuck out of these bastards.

I agree that it's time consuming (about 2hrs a day to keep my 5 planets stocked with mats for P3 production), and the margins aren't great in high sec (about 9mm a day), but it fits with my available play time and I run Iranian centrifuges, which is hilarious.

For me, I spent a legitimate amount of time researching what sells in Amarr (Jita is way too crazy to be bothered with and the prices aren't too off). The most time investment was in doing the scans of the planets and flying to them to see what kind of tax rate I would have to pay at the customs office. I made a lot of choices on where to set up shop based on that last point. I can't express enough how important Customs Code Expertise is! Basically (at lvl4) I don't bother with anything over 11% at the very worst.

On where to look for planets in high sec, I'd say being 10+ jumps from you hub of choice is clutch. The less traffic in system tends to mean lower CO tax rates and less competition for prime planets.

All in all tho, it's just different strokes for different folks. I'm really just killing time on this high sec gig until I can get my cruiser skills to lvl 3 and head on out to the low-sec for some hawt manufacturing action.

In my case, the combination of 15% corporate tax rate and all available planets being permanently near-depleted means that the only viable PI setup is extracting P2s (mostly Enriched Uranium). As for Jita being the sales hub of choice, that's where all our jump freighter services go to.

Such is the price of living the life of luxury in central Deklein. :)

Find a wormhole with a highsec static and do PI in there. They're the best planets. You just have to be a bit sneakier on getting your export out.

If you are looking for more ISK I do suggest trading as a nice source of safe income. If you are station trading you will never have to undock your trade character. If you do inter-regional trading between hubs you can use 3rd party hauling such as Red Frog Freight, Push-X or public courier contracts. I started up my own inter-regional trading route about 4 weeks ago and turned a 500 mil initial investment into 4bil in assets for sale. The total time I spend on my trade ops is less than an hour a day and mostly taken up by the fact that I do my own hauling most of the time. I tend to use public contracts to do my hauling if I happen to have a load over 1 billion ISK to move.

Fly Safe!
