Buy famous player corpses and start your own "Wax Museum"? You can pay people to bring you specific corpses. Imagine a museum full of the games biggest (or most popular) players or the forum's biggest (or most popular) posters.

Find people who love EVE, but for financial reasons due to the economy or sickness, can no longer pay for it. Give them enough money to buy plenty of GTC's, and watch the smiles?

Buy a state raven. Officer fit it, then SB jita 4-4 with it.

Or buy up all the T2 BPOs of a certain ship / module, transfer them to an alt in a shuttle, suicide gank the alt then trash any that survive.

Or be a nice guy, and give a bil to everyone who posts in here, instead of one per page. Imagine how many people you'd make happy? Then you could go and have the adventure of starting again! (keeping like, a bil for yourself or something)

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.

Become EVE's odds maker.

BoB and Goons are slugging it out in Delve? Pay for expert analysis, and make odds on it.

Alliance tournament is up? PL only pays out .7 to 1.

Odds on when Eve Central Reserve will be revealed to be a scam. Base off of prior Bank failure time frames.

Odds on when Blasters will get more tracking.

Odds on the next time highest players logged on will occur.

Alternatively, crash trit buy buying Chribba's reserves and flooding them onto the market, and watch tens of thousands of eve players begin spam-self destructing battle ships. Laugh at EnYoJ (or whatever his name is) as he cries himself to sleep.

1) Give Chribba the trillion isk to hold.

2) Charge players 1B each to participate in a hunting game where you designate an area of high-sec space which you will fly within for a certain period of time. You will not dock or log off during that period of time nor will you fly outside the designated area (could be a constellation, could be linked 20-30 systems of your choice, etc..). Whoever can pod you and present your corpse as proof to Chribba receives the 1 Trillion isk prize (of course assuming they've paid the 1B entry fee already). You may fly whatever ship you want and you can even scatter pre-fitted empty ships across the area in safe spots so that you can jump in another ship if you lose your current ship (but not yet podded). You keep all proceeds for this event regardless of the outcome.

3) If not one manages to kill you within the allotted time period, repeat step 2 as often as you desire or until you do get podded by someone.

Buy 20 fully fitted battleships of each race and have a battle royal. 20 rounds, with the winners moving on to round two which is cruisers with 15 rounds with the winners moving on to round three, frigates for 10 rounds. The winners from that go onto starter ships for 5 rounds. the winner overall gets a billion. youtube it all and share.

First select an entity in eve of whom you are not fond. Consider any who have given you trouble, griefed you, hired mercs against you, or anyone who has done this to those whom you call friends, or even anyone in general that you dislike in eve.

Second, research who can most easily and effectively push back against this entity. If it was a high sec corp of some sort, fund mercenaries or rival corps. If it was a specific alliance, fund whoever is given them the greatest measure of trouble.

Be selective in who you fund, how and how much of course, but then sit back and watch, and take joy in watching those who you dislike be caused grief by every last isk you pump into their enemy. Do not fund them all at once, to ensure that they stay on task. With a trillion isk of funding, an alliance could become quite a nussiance to another.

Such funding could equate to titans that would tip a balance, battleship replacements, spiffy faction toys, or whatever the situtation calls for. Even over a short period such funds could tip a fight for a small area, provide the might to accumulate new allies or even just aggrovate some leaders who thought they had an enemy beat.

There are plenty of sources out of which you could draw to find someone to dislike such as CAOD, C&P or perhaps your lossmail history. It would inappropriate for me to suggest specifc targets, as I am not the one with the hoard of isk at my disposal, but surely there is someone you would enjoy seeing stomped...

Meh, my 2 isk

1 trillion ISK gives you a huge amount of influence over people who play this game. Remember that there are miners out there who will mine in highsec for a few million ISK/hour. My suggestion: pay people to inform and entertain you.

That's the purpose of this thread, isn't it? Nothing's stopping you from doing something similar to this on a regular basis. From time to time, post a question about a topic that interests you, offering rewards for the responses you like best.

You might want to try being vague. Think of how many different kinds of responses you might get if you say nothing but "Bring me pictures of Spiderman!" Comic book collectors will send links to scans, artists will draw sketches for you, etc. Some of those will be clever enough to be worth your ISK, but who knows what else you might get? EVE is a big community... maybe one of us knows a guy who knows a guy who works for Marvel Comics...

Perhaps this is the plan you're looking for. It'd be fun while the money lasts, but even you can't afford to run threads like this every day. I do have an idea for a more permanent way of paying people to amuse you; I'll explain that in my next post.

Start an online newspaper covering real life news.

Why?

1) Whimsy

e.g. Sports section. You don't need to pay for news about the NFL. That's easy to get elsewhere. What your ISK could buy you is information about really obscure sports. I'm sure there is at least one person out there in the EVE community who knows a lot about Jai Alai and who is willing to write a short column about what's new in the sport for 50m ISK / week.


2) RL news you want but can't get elsewhere.

EVE players can give you this in at least two different ways. First, we live in different countries all around the globe. When wars break out, it's probable that there are people on both sides of the border who would want to tell their stories. More importantly, we have players who speak a very wide range of languages. Wouldn't you be willing to pay imaginary money for a real-time translation of a foreign leader's speech in time of crisis?


A newspaper sounds like a lot of work, doesn't it? Well, with a trillion ISK you don't need to be the one doing the work. Hire editors and a webpage designer. For that matter, you can hire an editor-in-chief to do all of the organizational work for you. Being publisher is an easy job, now that you've earned the ISK to make it happen.

I think it would be pretty cool if you developed a scavenger hunt similar to what Red Bullis doing. They call it the "Stash". Random clues to a box with an item in it. As there are about 70ish regions in EvE you could hide and anchor several cans in space in each region and password protect them. Each can would have a clue to its location and another clue as to its password. Inside the can would be a specific item(s) that would need to be presented to your character via contract with contract title "Eve Scavenger Hunt". The party that locates and presents the item would win a predetermined amount of ISK and be allowed to participate in "THE FINAL SCAVENGER HUNT" (The final scavenger hunt would reward the finder with either a really awesome item or a exponentially larger sum of cash)

You could set this whole thing up at your leisure and develop the clues as you go. Then when everything is in place. You could release either all the clues at once or one at a time and watch as the whole community breaks away from their daily routine to have a go at finding the treasure....

I think it would be really fun to see this go down in EvE. And I hope that you like my idea even though I kinda stole it from Red Bull.

Best idea so far....Would be hilarious to see people crossing enemy lines to find the treasure, Triple A up into Morsus Mihi space and Pandemic Legion into Red Alliance space and vice versa. "Podded looking for THE STASH" ==LEOWEN STASH 4TW==

1. Get a lot of freighters, then block of every stargate in Jita

Something that requires less ships:

2. Give 5 billion to random new corps to help them get on track

3. Go to a random system, Go to local > Click on a random person > Click "give money" > Fill in as much as your wallet allows > Click OK.

Buy some nice officer mods and drop them in cans in high-sec Gravimetric sites. That way there would actually be a point to scanning out these worthless abominations!

1. Setup a buyback system for all the Sov holding control towers that are about to become useless after the Dominion patch.

2. Wait several months for the next patch where they introduce t1 -> t2 salvage reactors and everyone needs a tower again quick.

3. Profit (once more!)

Sounds silly but some sort of good cause?

Use some of your isk and work in conjunction with Chribba and his practice of leaving cans of free stuff about? Help him do it on a bigger scale? Maybe fund some corps that actually set out to help newer players and train them up? Or even start up your own and pay people to run it?

Great power comes great responsibility etc etc.

Or just start a new alliance and be very picky with who joins it and fund all losses and make a huge impact in 0.0 as money is no object?

The fun:
Organize a race in some deeps space with prefitted frigates like rifters. Each with mwd and 2 webs. The race should be a couple laps. Only hostiles actions allowed would be webbing opponents. Watch and film people as they have to make choice of who to web, when to mwd and how everyone webs the guy that is 1 lap ahead of next guy.

The evil:
Browse C&P or killboards and look for multi bilion officer fitted ships lost in high sec. Buy them new ones. Pay mercs to kill them again in same ship.

The good:
Nah. not worth the isk.

Another idea would be a rat race across EVE? From the top to the bottom having to stop off at various check points to collect items so they don't JC form the top to the bottom? Keep the check points secret until the race starts? See who can best use their existing jump clones and is able to kill of the enemy as the race goes on?

Prize for the winner?

Edit: Forgot to mention this is an adjustment from the page 3 suggestion in that there are check points etc.

You ever watched some of the videos on evetube?

You ever seen a video of someone constantly hotdropping several motherships on people? :)

Id take that isk and buy a couple chars (or talk to soem very trusted ppl and buy em a mothership) and roam around making videos of you going into amamake and hotdropping like 5 motherships onto gangs of ppl every day. Take em to rancer...flatten the gatecamp there. Just do crazy stuff with em, would get you epic e-fame and your name would be synonimous with epic mothership combat :)

Imagine...aw look at that cute little rifter...cyno...wtf...5 motherships ZOMFG!!!!

Awesomeness in a can :)

start a weekly or monthly free lottery available to the entire eve community. every drawing you give away 1-12 plex cards. eventually it will get so popular that you will probably get donations and plenty of ideas from other users to help fund new ideas.


Page 4 winner. Hmmm I seem to be quite the philanthropist. I think you need to give me some more 'Leo the Evil One' ideas, I want to do something MEAN!!!! YARRRR!!

Oh, and to Curzon Dax. I can post a screenie if people really want me to, but didn't really want this thread to be all about Leo's e-peen. I've made a point of being fairly obscure in recent years but in the past my main was Bertie who ran EVE's first T2 Component business. Big money was made and I invested it in 40-50 hot T2 prints. No juggernaut needed, just a one-man show playing EVE far too much.
