Well after a few months of cashing out (>8m T2 components took a while to shift!), I only have a handful of T2 prints left but now have just over 1,000,000,000,000 ISK cash. Yay!

But errrr what now? I don't play much so I won't be doing anything at all high-maintenance. I want lots of ideas please, so to that end I will pay a 1B ISK prize to the best idea per page on this thread. Best might not be most profitable, it might be easiest, most innovative, most outrageous, most vindictive, or just plain most funny!

Bring on the ideas.

Oh, and if you believe yourself to have a truly genius idea that can make oodles of money, feel free to mail me privately in-game. You have nothing but my word that if I use it I will reward you handsomely, and if I don't I won't mention it to anyone else.

EDIT: Closing the 1B ISK offer after Page 10 - I think we've got it covered Laughing

I'd beg for forgiveness for having that much capital liquid. It goes against every Caldari bone in my body.

I'd buy up freighters, they've been a lot lower lately than I've seen them in 2 years of playing EVE, and they're probably market manip capable.

Get some friends together, get titan or two (and characters), blow up station hugging capitals in lowsec. Keep going at it until you lose said titans or people become too afraid to play the station games.

It never hurts to help new players enjoy this game with a little financial boost.
This would in turn make them stay longer = more consumers for your future T2 products.
Go to new player schools and give out free BS to all week old toons.

I'd create a new thread on eve forum and encourage people to generate 1000 pages of responses, paying 1bn on each page.

Go to Jita, and buy everything. Then move it all to a low sec system. Then sit back and watch the carnage. Very Happy

Awaiting my billion isk....

It depends. How many accounts do you have available?

I should probably be posting these ideas over a few pages in order to have a better chance for the 1bill's. But hey! Here's some crazy ideas that might be fun, even if not profitable.

1. Cause enough of an impact on the market to be mentioned(Even if indirectly) in a QEN.
2. Attempt to stop supplies of high-end moon minerals to enter Jita.
3. Buy enough accounts to get onto the CSM, or somebody you want on there.

Slightly more profit-orinated ideas:
1. Buy a ****-ton of freighter and mother-ship blueprints, research and copy them!
2. Sell Capital BPO-sets that allows people to get straight into building Capitals, with optimal ME and PE on them.
3. Fund a micro-loan service to somebody you trust. If done right, it will help the EVE economy and turn you a slight profit.

Might have more crazy ideas later.

Start a new MARKET Location... Think we are all sick of Jita and Rens as the main hubs of commerce.... Might I suggest Trer... Shoot You could buy everything from Rens and Jita Contract to a system close to your heart and now you have your own market in your private system.

Posted - 2009.10.16 13:39:00 - [16]

eves largest lottery.

buy and sell at the super capital ship level

start your own trader/market corp with a good friend (due to time constraints on your part) and invest the money into the corp and do what your doing at a larger level all over eve with many different characters.

obtain some more pricey mods/ships and sell them at a higher price (come expansion due to changes and need/want for moms and mods to fit them)

And like someone said buy a rather large collection of multiple supercap/cap component BPOs research em, sell BPCs and when bored the BPOs

But my #1 suggestion is lotteries and prizes

You could do a type of scavenger hunt through out new Eden with a nice prize in the end. Get people to make alts and place BMs with clues in a station hanger (a lot cuz of ******s taking them all or some other method) and have them going around to find stuff etc etc.

I got more but at work and just got yelled at by the boss. So will prob be back

Well, as you've won the game you now have two choices: play it again but this time instead of playing it on Easy, you should up the difficulty level to Hard or Nightmare. The second option is to buy another game.

Nice work,

If I had so much cash I didn't know what to do with it (aka 1 trillion) I would probably head over to the Eve Online Holdem tables, learn to play and have a bit of a gamble. Something different and from what I have seen the games are usually (at max) only 100m each. Lower end ones are there too for the newer players. But with 1 trillion you should be able to have a lot of fun without it even denting your wallet.

I might see you in there one day. Holdem is a game I love playing but I don't want to head in there till my wallet supports me sufficiently :)

give some to GHSC to infiltrate a corp of your least favourite forum ***** / competition / whatever and wait a couple of years then revel in the glory. it's low maintenance.

Good idea.

Fund a few poker players and have them play together. Chances are that they are going to be able to double their ISK repeatedly, if they do it right.

Take a cut of the profits.

It depends on what you are after.

For some, money is a tool, not an end.
You might strive for power or fame.

One easy way to have the game be changed due to one individual (you) or to surge to a top dog position would be to hire a powerful mercs corp to completely perma camp Njaria, Sivala and maybe Balle (and Rens exit to Derelik) and prominent low sec bottlenecks and to downright kill *every* ship going thru.

At the same time, you'd be selling the looted stuff and generally try and monopolize in an harsh way as many now starving market niches as possible.

After a while they'd have to nerf suicide ganking because of you alone making the high sec game economy exceedingly expensive and nasty (you'll be interviewed in blogs as "the guy who singlehandedly caused a game change).

In the mean time you'd have huge returns due to how gankboats are almost free and you being a semi-monopolist you'd basically earn a good part of the spent money back.

A T3 ship Free For All. Contestants fund their own ships, enter a single corp together, and on the set date reserve a highsec system as an arena and fight it out. Last Man Standing wins like 10 bil isk.

If people start taking sides in a FFA, organize a ladder with 1v1 matches. But I'd like the "giant crazy battle" aspect of the FFA.

Bankroll as many mercenary corporations as possible and set them all against a single 0.0 alliance. Let 0.0 burn!

Otherwise acquire all the Spirits and Prostitutes you can and hand them out to every yarrin' flyboy out there. Merry X-Mas!

Hi there.

If I had 1 Trillion ISK I would create an alt for myself and then go to the newbie starting areas and ask players for help (not beg) and the people that go out of their way to help you then reward them nicely. Like a secret trillionaire thing. I'd make it into a blog too. So people know who the good people are and who the people are that are just un helpful people. Everyone knows the EVE has the biggest learning curve of all games so people there to help with the learning curve would be a good addition to the game. :-)

And here in lies the sad part.You have 1 trillion isk and don't know what to do with it so need to ask others YET you are so greedy to search more.

The reason you don't know what to do with it is because you are blinded by your search for wealth but one day you too will see the light my child.

Buy the naming rights to a whole constellation out in nullsec.

Or cut down the "good idea" prize down to 500 million ISK to make it last longer.
