So at this point I'd assume most people have heard about the EIB Scam, so let's shift gears a bit.

We were having this conversation in our corp chat a bit ago. If you were the benefactor of such a large scam, what would you do with the 700bil ISK? Build a fleet of Outposts? Put MC on a retainer for a year? Let's hear some wacky thoughts.Laughing

Edit: Make sure it's stuff you can reasonably buy. All the T2 HAC BPOs sounds fun, but not everyone is going to sell theirs, especially not for low prices if they know your goal and how much money you have

I'd build a chain of stations in BoB space, then hire out MC and every other Merc corp for a full year to defend it.


That amount of money can literaly break this game.

First, I would buy all the T2 BPOs I could get my hands on.
Second, I would buy a full Halo set.
Third, I would start PvPing with faction Battleships. :)

Try to see if I could somehow manage to collect 1 trillion units of Tritanium. Just to see if the game abbreviates the stack with a little 'T'.

ugh

Edit: Jeesh, the filters on this forum are obnoxious.

Use it to buy up 5833 30-Day GTC's @ 120m each.
Resale those 5833 Codes for RL money @ 12$ each ( 2$ off normal price )

--

So turn that 700b into around 70,000 USD
Put that 70,000 in a high interest non taxable account.

Keep goin to school and dont touch it for around 30 years. Retire.

Cliffs:

1) Player Cally starts the EVE Investment Bank in early 2006
2) A lot of drama goes on in the mean time with people sticking up for the EIB and others calling it a scam
3) Cally's owner decides it's been long enough and cleans out the bank, netting around 700bil in ISK and another 100bil in assets

That's really all the high points.

I think this is what I'd do to. But have BoB declare war on ISS, Goonswarm, and ENIGMA

1. Buy all T2 BPOs of a kind and cartel it.

2. Mothership with faction mods.

3. Slowly spend it.

I would buy every T2 BPO available, then just let them sit in my hangar forever and see if any new BPOs are seeded.

Then I would buy a titan and a character that can buy a titan and an alt to set up cyno fields and set off the superweapon on gatecamps, just to see the look on their faces when a Titan jumps in.

And then I suppose I would set up outposts in 0.0 free for everyone to dock in, just because I have the money to do so.

Build myself a Minmatar an Amarr Outpost and BPOs of every T2 Ship I fly. Then also get a Mothership kitted out with the best stuff and just pirate in it.

I'm surprised, really I am, no seriously I am, honest, why can't a bank in EVE work with upstanding people like the GHSC being its posterboys, why oh why cruel world!?!?
