1. Create character named Batman.
2. Create your own corp. Suggested name: I AM BATMAN
3. Create a killboard.
4. Only fly Bantams, since its really Batman but with letters switched around.
4. Bribe people, telling them you will pay them for their ship loss/modules plus 50% on top, if you can kill them in PVP.
5. Be the greatest Bantam pilot, ever. Or at least fight crime.
6. Maybe get a sidekick. Up to you.

Start the games’ biggest financial corporation. Essentially, be an AIG or Goldman Sachs. Develop effective ways to loan money, ensure money, have many arms of your group that do many things, controlled and initially funded by you but effectively managed by others. In this way you will make a fortune if successful and become the biggest name in eve, controlling a ton of the market and production of the whole game. Pay managers and a board of executive’s salaries and come up with pay schemes for management, recruitment of business partners and producing reports to give to superiors, protection services; essentially provide every in game economic function under one name.
Eventually you will be the head of a group that manages trillions of ISK and manages a lot in the economy. The synergy savings and trust price setting can gauge the economy and cement your role as the most important player in EVE.
To grow even more you could sell stock, but to keep control maintain 51 percent.
Given the vast resources you have, you can grow without having to make a profit at first without having to deal with shareholders. In this way you can preserve long term goals. Also, your continued existence ensures long term services contracts and people will deal a lot and on the up and up expecting long term relationships.

Just my idea :D kind of ambitious but I hope you like it.

Give all the money to Goonswarm and see how quickly it takes for them to conquer the entire southern half of 0.0 space.

Use half to buy one of every unique ship in the game (Guardian Vexor, Tribal Tempest, etc). 400bil i'd invest, and the rest? buy a lot of expensive faction ships to pvp and die horribly in YARRRR!!

One more idea. I was reading Jita local and some guy was giving free stuff away. The catch was he would give an item always to the one who wrote fist what he told them to wrote. It was surprisingly fun to wait when would next say something and try to write it as quickly as possible. You could of course expand the idea and use the forums to ask people to do all kinds of activities, the first one succeeding in it getting some amount of isk. If you would scatter the posts to various different forum categories instead of just market discussion, it would bring an exciting twist to reading the forums. Although the GMs might not like this part of the idea. :)

EVE and getting laid aren't mutually exclusive. Seems like Fleet Commanders get a lot of rl tail.

I have an idea!! Hire historians to compile a great history of Eve/Encyclopedia (not online, a real thing you can put on your coffee table). Have interviews with heroes and legends, write the exploits of alliances past and present.

Have it compiled into a great tome, like Lord of the Rings (except with pictures!) and update it yearly. Maybe partner with CCP to get it printed and sold in the eve-store.

When Eve-Online finally dies, or the great year of 2003 is barely a legend, we will have this great piece of work to remember our shared history, thanks to you!

Hell if Leowen gave me a substantial amount of those iskies I would write a history of Eve that made History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire look like a piece of crap. Besides I need something to actually use by B.A. on :D

Fund an Eve Nobel literature prize, but named after yourself, if you like.

Hire a jury of people with real world credentials; i.e. an English major or 2. Have them solicit and evaluate fan fiction for a periodic contest with an isk prize.

Consider doing this in other languages in addition to or instead of English, hopefully changing the prize jury as needed.

Wait for Dominion to come out, hire lots of Mercenary corp's, topple Goonswarm and every 0.0 alliance that gets in your path, and make 0.0 for carebear's.

The Horror.

You could have gate camps on every gate into your carebear kingdom, and flock the newbies down to you, setting up your own empire, then, when your ready, catalyze them for war, and lead the charge of the carebears as they finish what your mercs started, and take over the entire of 0.0.

Should be fun. Would shake things up atleast.

Do what I do.

Trade on the markets with long term movements and use those profits to fund wars against random carebear corps and pit the pvp plebes to fight amongst themselves.

...thereby using more materials

I call it the great circle of life.

Get in your friends, form up competent and loyal pvp pilots around you, prepare everything, gather info, pick spaceholding alliance wich already has some natural sickness, take their space, well funded army wich is actually good at play will be a nasty surprise any major eve power. Take moons and sort out logistics asap so your new economy won't be easy to break.

I don't really care about the money but your knowledge is what i seek! I would love to have you teach a few classes on how to make money. I am in EveU we often have people talk about tackling and PvP and such, but to have an industrial type talk about what it takes would be very awesome.

Teach me to be your Industrial Protege~ so to speak. I mean I don't have a RL job so I have a ton of spare time.

buy remaining tourney ships (guardian vexor, raven state issue, etc); go outside jita and self destruct 1 by 1 until they are no more :)

Posted - 2009.10.23 03:18:00 - [317]

buy titan, fully officer fit it and fill its cargohold with faction loot, hire out all mercenary corps you can to kill it in rookie fleet of doom on nov 30, sit back and play epic classical music to it while swirling aged scotch in a fine crystal glass, lounging in a smoking robe while in a throne like chair and laugh like the evil mastermind you are.

Once the titan is dead and the noob fleet is trying to grab the loot have 2 more titans warp in on the fleets location and double doomsday entire fleet, making it the most massivle gank of all time while ending the aoe dd in the most epic of manners.

Not sure why you feel the need to earn ISK if you already have a trillion ISK.

If you're some massive industrial juggernaut that I don't know about, my apologies - but people with a trillion ISK aren't looking for good ways to make ISK because they've got it figured out already.

It kind of makes me doubtful that you have a trillion ISK. *shrugs* To each their own. Want to do something fun? Copy the last two years of my Eve life and do the same with your ISK that I have. Contests, giveaways, "Who Wants to be a Billionaire" contests, fit out 100 billion ISK officer fit ships.

But if you have a trillion ISK, you have no reason to be looking for more. And if you're a greedy trillionaire, then you know how to make ISK better than 99% of the Eve population. And being in that elite 1%, you KNOW who the other 1% are, and how tightly they/we/whomever guard purse-strings, and know that you'll get nothing out of it.

Well Leowen, i'd pay this guy ^^ to quit faster.

LOL... if this is for real, there's a couple of things I would do.

I would spread the joy out over time, by paying out isk to people who will do various embarrassing things. Have a karaoke contest for isk using EVE voice in the local channel. Go to a gate, and find two (or more) people who will duel, instantly, in what they are in when they jump through the gate. Make people write a 10 page single spaced essays on why they should get isk, what they want to do with it, and why they think you are the bomb. Make the price high enough and you should be able to do this. Go to local and offer a billion isk for the first person to create and post a video of themselves doing some particular stupid activity on youtube and link in local (like making out with an office chair... bonus isk if you use tongue). (set a time limit by which they can participate).

Best of all would then be to Fraps the whole thing, and create an epic eve video about how there is no limit to what people would do for isk. (Obviously the easiest thing to do would be to hire someone to do all the frapsing and editing using some of that isk)

Wins Page 8.

You'll need CCP's permission to do this, but you might be able to pull it off. Spend a trillion buying up PLEX. You'll net about 3500 of them at current prices. Hand the PLEX to CCP, have them take them out of the game, and donate the cash equivalent - almost $62,000 US - to a charity of your choice. Make it something big and reputable, so that they don't think you're trying to RMT, but they might just go for it for publicity's sake alone. And hey, money to a good cause.

Wins Page 9.

You Could make a prize of some of the isk to go to the first person to run butt-naked (streaker) over a major football match with "eve-online" written on his/her chest and "Leowen made me do it" on the back Very Happy

Then gleefully enjoy the publisity in both eve and the real world as newspapers and sport-channels show it day after day Twisted Evil

w00t!!! I've never won anything before!

I'd like to thank Leowen of course for being an absolute sport with his earnings and setting me up with the funds to stop my grinding. The universe has suddenly opened up for me with this windfall. Cheers.

I'd also like to thank Curzon Dax for originally trolling the thread and providing me with the ammunition. Priceless m8, priceless.

It is most, most appreciated fella's.

Thanks again Leowen. Very Happy

Make your own EVE sports league. A few options for this really.

Capture the flag: 2 teams, all in frigates. Each team has a cargo container, the containers are 125km apart with some cheap item in them. Frigates have guns, ABs, and webs. First to get the other team's item to within 50km of their own container wins. If a frigate gets blown up, hey, its a frigate. Hope in a new one and keep going until a victor is declared.

Wheres Waldo?: Make an alt with a very distinctive name, and set him loose once a week. The first person to ram your ship (so they are in the same area) and convo you gets the prize.

The maze: Get a ton of cargo containers, and place them in a maze format in a secret location. Have several entrances, then give some ships bookmarks the separate instances. The once that gets to the middle first is declared the winner. Package them all up in a freighter and do it again later.
