Put a 1B bounty on a random innocent player, and start a man hunt for like 1 hour.

if the player survive and stays online, get him a nice prize, else reimburse him for his ship (at least)

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

Buy a PVP pilot, subcapital one.

One wich has as much as possible lvl 5 skills in pvp support skills.

Buy a hauler alt, capable to fly JF.

Start flying pirate pvp in lowsec with faction fitted frigates and cruisers, even battleships.

So basically base out anywhere in the lowsec, use your new shiny JF pilot to jump all the fancy stuff straight to your current station in lowsec and just roam in your beautifull faction ships while kicking ass Twisted Evil

Feel the FREEDOM! I must remind that if you truly have that one trillion ISK and you do not play that often, that trillion ISK will last long! Cool

I envy you my friend Rolling Eyes

slightly late, but i'll give it a try anyway :)

(also didn't have the time to go and read all 12 pages, so possibly this has already been suggested :)

Buy as many T2 BPOs as you can afford, and lock 'em up in a dark chamber(or alternatively trash 'em), thus finally creating a free t2 market where everyone got an equal chance.

1) pay several(20-30) people to smartbomb jita at once.
3)pay 40-50 people to have an SB only battle with bombs
4)get as many people as possible to show up in a system in a noobship, and DD them all before dominion comes out
5)make funny shapes with empty ships and or cans
6) and finally, go out to a starting area, find a new player(not an alt) and crap isk on them, thus setting them up for the forseeable future

Industrial Gankers
1) Run as many accounts as you can and/or hire some merc characters into a full fleet fleet.
2) Gear up in as many industrial ships with cap boosters, rechargers, and blasters as you can. Get some webs, scrambers, and maybe some ECM.
3) Go gatecamp crashing in Rancer, Amamake, Old Man Star, etc. Post a video here on the forums for fame and laughs.

Social Experiment
1) Send X ISK (50m?) to 100 active characters.
2) Send them a mail saying you accidently sent to the money to his/her character, and ask if you could have it back.
3) Record how many people send you your ISK back.
4) Post results so everyone can demonize the Eve population (though who knows, maybe you'll get a lot of it back.)

The Largest Disco Party Eve Has Ever Seen
1) Nullsec system
2) Battleships with smartbombs

Mess with the ISK Spammers
1) Use a English -> Chinese translator or hire someone who can translate.
2) Convince some of the ISK sellers to spam people's inbox with your message for a few days instead of their usual ISK seller spam by offering large amounts of ISK (5 billion might work for a couple days.)
3) Laugh as you wreak confusion and laughs upon random players throughout the Eve Universe.
The message I would use (Modified Nigerian Bank Scam):

Jita, The Citadel.
Attention: The President/CEO

Dear Sir,

Confidential Business Proposal

Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the Jita Chambers Of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer the sum of 47,500,000.00 (forty seven billion, five hundred million InterStellar Kredits) into your wallet. The above sum resulted from an expired PoS Mining contract, executed, commissioned and paid for about five months (5) ago by a outside player. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at E-Bank's Central Database.

We are now ready to transfer the funds out of E-Bank and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as E-Bank Insiders, we are forbidden to transfer funds to our personal wallets; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 29% for you and 1% for Eve's transaction taxes.

The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Jita's Secure Trade Commission. If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following information:

(a) your alternate characters and your current liquid assets.

(b) a limited API key for your primary Eve characters

Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take us three (3) working days to accomplish.

Please reply urgently.

Best regards

Imper Son Hatar

Alternatively use an alt character and account and try to scam people. If you could get anyone to fall for the above.. you would win approximately 10 internets.

Down with the Veldnaught
I'm not sure you could even do this with 1 trillion ISK, but hire enough suicide gankers to down The Veldnaught. You might incure massive public outrage, and who knows what Chribba would do.

Biggest Killmail with only a Rookie Ship
Start a contest; killmails between X date are applicable. Whoever can cause the most damage in a single kill using only a rookie ship (no help from teammates) wins.

Above is somewhat abusable though, might have to think of a way to prevent that.
Anyway, character limit maxed.

Ok, I have an Idea that I didn't see been posted yet. (maybe you'll still pay a reward if you really like it)

It's feasible, and not time intensive and would allow you to put a mark on the game that would still be visible years and years ahead if the game persists.

Pay the first 1000 characters to reach 5 million spell points 1 billion isk if they use Leowen as their second name. (sp verifyable by api or post on a site requiring such)

Once a character has 5 million sp's its probably got a good chance of being used or sold to someone that uses it...many woul be likely to continue to have spell points invested in it.

Even if you get 10% of those 1000 staying very active after a year or so some wold be bound to be very visible.

If you had 1000 children certainly a few would rise to grand promise?

Certainly 100's more of your progeny would be around as hauling, cyno, and trading, alts for the years, living less glamorous live but being productive to society before the player goes inactive.

You'd have left your name in the game. 1 billion would more than cover the isk it would cost to buy the game time and train them. Waiting 3 months for a promised payment might feel risky although all they'd be risking would be a skewed character name. Maybe you'd offer a partial payment along the way.

Checking a web page and sending isk would be far less time consuming than creating 100's or 1000 new accounts and checking their training frequently (to build make their sp distribution good to make them more likely to be used).

Long Live the house of Leowen !

Do a Eve version of "The Running Man"!

Have it just like the book,

-The player has 24 hours head start.
-The player must stay in .4 or lower sec. (Or could have them in a corp and your hunters have a war dec on them so they can be killed anywhere, mind you. You would have less random people hunting the person also.)
-Have a group of "Hunters" 30 players payed to hunt down the contestnet.
-The player must be online at least 6 hours a day (only gets payed for online time).
-The player can not dock for more then 10 min at a time to resupply.
-The player is payed 1 million a hour for staying alive.
-The player gets 10 mill per kill of a hunter
-The player must make a 10 min Youtube video every day and post it to make sure it is for real.
-If the player lasts 30 days, they get a grand prize of 1 Trillion Isk! (was 1 billion dollers in the book which was in the 70's)

You could have a group of people doing reports and updates in its own chat channel.

This would be a crazy fun event. Who could last the 30 days! Only the Running Man!

I'll give this an entirely altruistic bump.

There should be some things you could do with the Eve blogging community. There's a lot of bloggers out there...

- Buy as many T2 BPOs as you can, then trash them, making EVE a better world to live in for us all.
- Start and fund something like Eve university, but for pirates.
- Use it as prize money for the alliance that manages to kill/remove goons. You could also use it to foment intrigues inside of them till they failcascade, making EVE a better world to live in for us all.
- Fund suicide ganking macroers + run an intel channel for easy reporting of macroers. Basically do what CCP hasn't/couldn't (except for unholy rage), making EVE a better world to live in for us all.
- Time intensive but fun: Drive MD elite out of business. The tears would be priceless.

1, Abandon POS's in wormholes for explorers to find :). be sure to put some officer/deadspace items in them.

2, Buy a state raven, and selfdestruct it outside Jita 4-4.

3, Spend all the money on alts, and move them all inteo jita at the same time. and crash the system :D.

4, Buy a system/ region. lol.

c) Give me some Wink

You can build the indestructable ship:\

Here's a start!

Can sustain that for 2m 30s or so. That's 219,649 EHP!!
NO Overload
Close that Kin gap by overloading just that module:
97.6/96.6/96.7/95.7 lasts 8 minutes, for 130,047 EHP

1.Train for/get a Nightmare or an equally sought after ship
2. Fit it with the best PvP mods, stuff the average PvPer wouldnt dream of risking
3. Join a PvP centric thing; FW or RvB or something of the sort
4. Melt serious face with the facerollingly high amounts of DPS you have
5. Cause QQ with said lolDPS

I would come on the forums and say I have a trillion isk to stroke my peen. But tbh I am close to that number and use this supersecret alt because I want exactly the opposite of what you do. Next, if you need to ask what to do with a tril isk, you are fixing to lose it.

Make it all a bounty, NOT on a person, but a ship... But a 1 trillion ISK bounty on Chribba's famed Veldnaught and require a YouTube vid as proof of the deed.

Personally I love Chribba, but option this would stir things up in empire Twisted Evil I mean, entire corps have gone after it for glory alone, but glory AND 1 trillion ISK is probably the best incentive you could ask for...

Edited for grammar.

First idea: (outrageous)

Fund the most ambitious and largest quest in EVE.
Helping me (1 man project not corp or multiple player project) to get 1 of each T2 BPO's ingame.
This would even beat Entity's collection. Razz

Be part of this mighty quest i'm on since i started it.
Big part of this collection is already accomplished!

Second idea: (temping)

Offer Voogru 1 tillion isk for his Opux Laughing

Third idea: (Funny)

Offer Entity cash to get 1 corpse of his and sell them for an epic auction!

Regarding first idea (my prefered ofc Razz) get in touch with me maybe we can work something out.

Donate it to The Fighting Republicans. Your donations will allow us to represent the principles of individual liberty, a strong national defense, and free-market capitalism by campaigning for conservative candidates in local, constellation, and regional elections. Also we will blow up lots of Communists.
