ISK per hour

I was reading some of the tears over the incursion nerf on the forums. Many, many tears poured about how the incursions are not worth doing and that blitzing level 4 missions makes the same amount of money.

And that made me think of ISK per hour. Its a huge thing in Eve and often argued over the value of PLEX. Because PLEX has a real world price (20 USD) and an in game price (500mil at the moment) people say that its silly to grind for isk because you are making only a dollar or two an hour.

For me, ISK making is a lot of my game play. Oh, I love my pewpew to death but its not a 24/7 action. Pulling large amounts of isk from the game to become filthy space rich is my main personal in game goal (outside of becoming a badass). I do it many different ways and try things out. Some days I am wildly successful (in my opinion) and others I don't make shit.

This month, for instance, I am positive 1.3 billion isk. If I add in my expenses (hurricanes, rifters, covops, another oneiros because why not...) I spent about 450-500million on stuff. I am positive 1.3 billion regardless of that. That means I effectively made around 1.7 billion this month. I'm proud of that.

People running incursions were making that in a day and saying it was what they deserved.

Eve is a very 'money' rich game. More so then many games. Yet, it translates well. Think of how much a car costs... now turn that into a spaceship. We're talking spaceships that are miles across. They get pricey. So I like the big numbers. They also make me feel special.

Anyway, the fact that someone feels that it is their Eve given right to make 100mil isk an hour doing something because they have fancy ships boggles my mind endlessly. And that if they don't get that, its not 'worth their time' and as such 'Eve if broken'.

I ponder this. I'm to sleepy to finish my thoughts for now...

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
