Massive PI production comes to mind. The skills are cheap and quick to train so that would be 12 characters all pulling in materials. Or the more traditional time honored research alt passive income army of doom. Trading becomes hugely profitable with so many alts in haulers to move stock around. And thats just the carebear side of things. A few scout alts seeded around the gates of a nullsec system of your choice as you rat or explore is rather nice not to mention having your own personal cyno chain for the cap fleet is pricless. The possibilities are endless tbh.

So I just created 3 accounts that I will have for 51 days. How do I make the most profit out of them in that time? :P

Go for the trade characters that give you the good trade skills at creation and then train for a mammoth that can use t2 cargo mods and well, trade. After you get going with the trade routes skill up for basic pi and set up at planets along your routes. Pick up the materials as you haul choice goods around the hubs and Profit! Most of it can be done afk as you play with your main so its pretty easy to do and if you do well then maybe enough isk will be left to buy a plex and keep it going so you can set them up as self perpetuating with research alts and such over time.

Train them up for trading, hauling, cloaking, transport ships. Learn where people produce datacores (check out the Profitability of R&D Agents service) and make sure you can buy stuff at the stations where those agents live. Grind standings with those corps in order to reduce broker fees - with your hauling training you'll be able to find Manufacturing or Production agents who will give you mostly courier missions.

There are, of course, other items on the market that are more profitable than datacores - it's just that datacore hauling is dead easy due to the limited number of places that people can create them.

Reinvest your profits into a blockade runner & covops cloak, expand your arbitrage hauling empire to lowsec.

thatbloke, thanks for the heads up about the special offer and the great instructions. It does work as I received an extra 30 days for $1.99. That's one cheap PLEX.

Another thing to think about when creating a second account. If you can't afford maintaining the second account, you can always transfer the character from your second account to your main account. It will cost you $20, but you will have a train up character without having to pause skill training on your main. Just make sure you give yourself 4-7 days before your second account expires for the transfer.

thatbloke, once again thanks!

This is awesome. So far, 2 extra months on my account - thanks to the Buddy Program - for just $4 USD. I stuffed up and used a third key on a trial account I'd created just prior to the 14 day window, without doing the required reading first. Oh well. Only $2 blown, cheaper than what I pay for coffee on campus.

I'm thinking of buying another 3 copies to try and store the CD keys for when I get my next set of Buddy Program invitations.

Meanwhile, 51 day duration PI alt army (EDIT: well, more of a squad sized unit) chaaaaarge!

Only a few hours left to decide ...

EDIT 2: I'd been bumping into a fraud prevention error after the second purchase, so for the third copy I switched from Credit Card to PayPal but on the forth attempted purchase the PayPal was blocked too (though possibly due to a connection on that account to the previously used card) HOWEVER I've found that I can gift EVE to the new account from my main Steam account using my Credit Card again. I'm trying it for 5 & 6 now.

EDIT 3: The easiest way I've discovered to do this if you're hitting payment errors:


  • Make a new Steam account.

  • Logout from it immediately.

  • Login to your existing Steam account.

  • Use the "gift" option to buy EVE and send it by the email address to which the new account was registered.

  • Logout of your existing Steam account.

  • Open the email

  • Login to your new Steam account

  • Click the email link to add EVE to the new Steam account.

  • Repeat as often as you find necessary.

I just got this, but it was more because I wanted to be able to eve through steam without my everyone in my friends list seeing "Eve Online: Demo" whenever I was playing. It's a small thing I know but it annoyed me ^^; Does anyone know if you have to use the code within a certain period of time? I might save it for some time when I can't afford to buy a GTC ^^;

Thread locked.

This process of gaining extra days is considered a billing exploit as stated in the terms and conditions of the Buddy Program.
