Damnit Leowen, always silent for long periods. Then poof, threadnaught =D

Originally by: Felix Jugo
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.


Having talked to you for a little about this many months ago, I think this is probably what you're looking for. Or something similar at least. What would you like to see happen in EVE? What would you like to see added? Personally I want more third-party websites and software, and if I had a few extra hundred B to blow on making a coalition of developers to do things, I would (or will).

At this point you can easily afford to pay people to start and run corps for you for whatever purpose you desire, and you can pay people to gather information for curiosity, espionage, or simply to broker knowledge (think, people paying you to know about X or Y since you'd always be kept up to date by agents). This would really switch your focus from the mainly solo-play with T2 comps and marketeering and focus more on not only meeting and interacting with other players in a fun way, but in making their game and EVE itself more interesting and fun. That sounds like a damn worthy way to spend ISK.

I also can't complain about the several posters who told you to buy the State Raven. =P She's pretty, but if someone was going to use it for reals, I'd sell it in a heartbeat.

Originally by: Leowen 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!!!! [:pirate:



Mean?

1) A roaming fleet of combat badgers.... soon your name will be synonymous with the most feared ship of all.... imagine all the gate camps crushed by the might of the badger, all the 'leet' PvPers forever having their killboards tainted by losing their HaC to a horde of badgers....
2) Put something valuable in a low-sec can and let everyone know where it is and what's inside, then have a few
friends/mercs waiting around it with stealth bombers
3) Create an in-game version of takeshi's castle! - this one isn't quite evil but would be great, imagine
hundreds of players trying to get through the gate camp of doom, or trying to dodge torpedoes in a ship with a
massive sig, and in the end put the winners up against some T3 ships while all they are allowed are shuttles...Twisted Evil.?
4) Move everything in jita to a 0.0 system... a really, really remote one....

good luck with it! Cool

For the Meaner side of you:

A Trillion ISK will buy a lot of things, including people. If I were you I would 'hire' some of the most powerful corps/alliance and make a mega alliance, all your involvement would be is paying the people, they would orchestrate the biggest, most powerful alliance EVE has seen, just stomping through the galaxy, there will be no need for sov or anything, just go through space and anihilate everything in your path.

All space, not just one though, use the idea from page 3 to hotdrop hundreds of cap ships, titans and motherships on random POS'es throughout all eve. Alliances would cower in your midst and be in total clamity in your wake. The sheer number of people that work for you would be enough to crush everything in front, to the side and to the rear of you. The mere mention of your name would case locals to dock up. You would be, dare I say it...

The Chuck Norris of EVE!

It would be epic, the amount of posts about how much destruction you cause, how many pos'es you took down. You could basically make EVE 'start over' there would be no alliance that had any space because as soon as they did you would demolish them, then when all the alliances have disbanded and gone through sheer lack of money, you could just disband the Alliance and watch EVE rebuild itself from scratch. This ending also falls inside the idea from page one 'Rediscovering EVE' you could fly through the 0.0 systems in a shuttle and no one would be there for a few weeks at least. :-)

1) You could buy a few amazing characters, and get people to pay you to pod them back to 900k SP if you forget to upgrade their clones.

2) You could buy all of the highsec capitals and go on a suicide ganking spree with a dread or Carrier until CONCORD owns you.

3) You could donate some of the ISK to the people who make EVE a brilliant place to be (Chribba, Darknesss etc)

4) You could buy all of the Tabacco in the universe and be the first person to get an EVE smokers cough (RP Style)

5) You could donate ISK to the newbies in the starter system when you see them mining for their first Cruiser/Destroyer.

6) You could fund an epic PVP movie where people are flying epicly fit Faction stuff and Fraps it all.

(Just a few ideas, but they might work Very Happy)

Run your own version of 'The Black Box"

Once a day:


>Leowen chooses an obvious carebear, hisec dweller at random. He opens a convo.

Leowen>> "Hello Daffyd"

Daffyd>> "Hello"

Leowen>> "I'd like you to make a decision, Daffyd. I am going to leave this convo open for the next 1/2 hour. At any time during that half hour you may close the convo or you may type "Push the Button".

Leowen>> "Should you close the convo 10 new-to-Eve players will receive a 10 million ISK gift and your life will return to normal. Should you choose to type "Push the Button" 10 random new-to-Eve players will be suicide ganked and podded and you will receive 100 million ISK."

Leowen>> "You will receive no further communication from me ever and anything other than a closed convo or "Push the Button" will be ignored. You have 30 miutes."


There's nothing "meaner" or more evil than messing with people's sense of their own morality.

Oh, one more idea that fits "mean" -- Pay mercs to pod anyone who suggested you do something kind or decent in this thread.....better yet pay to have everyone who responded in this thread podded.

Buy enough t1 fitted torp ravens and pay enough people to hunt down every marauder/faction ship in major missions hubs. This could probably double your isk from loot too:P

Well, it'd be his game so he could run it any way he wanted but the point would be to have no ramifications to a "Push the Button" choice other than any guilt at condemning 10 newbies for 100mil ISK.

Of course publishing results and having word filter through the community about the Black Box game might be interesting to watch.

Hey Phoenix

I prob hit the trill in assets a year or two ago actually, just never had it in cash before.

Bert is still around, need to get him a PLEX or two actually he has expired atm. Back when Bertie made his billions from selling comps I didn't want my customers to know how much money I was making from them, so I made Leo and this corp. Of course I was also bidding against my customers (inc you) to win BPO's in auctions... I carried on doing comps on and off with this char for the last couple of years and Bertie was an FC for Caldari FW for a while, again anonymity was a good thing, he probably would have been primary'd even more if those Gall scumbags had known he was minted Laughing Finally sold off all my comp prints a few months ago, 15 chars running 24/7 production was a bit painful really.

Good to see you're still around.

Leo (Bert)

idea for your evil side:

start up and fund a corp that suicide ganks freighters in high sec. i am sure you will get 50 people that would want to join the corp just to be a part of this. if handled well, you could probably put a few people out of business and keep your throne of being one of the richest players ever in the eve universe.

I'll humor you.

I believe that you should assist us in seeding Providence with Stations. Join us in our crusade to make 0.0 a better place for neutrals. All those newbies that want to find out what 0.0 is really like view Providence as an area of new exploration. As part of CVA, we try to protect these delicate citizens of the Empires from marauding wolves. So, if I had a trillion ISK, or even a billion, I'd donate it to either some new stations or for better disposable PvP ships for the Alliance, to aid in our quest to make our little slice of 0.0 better for those who desire new horizons.

Posted this in another thread previously and thought I would expand on it.
Hire as many mercs as possible to kill anything that moves in all the trade hubs... Jita, Rens, Amarr, Hek and watch the chaos.
or buy large number of tech 1 fitted ships and advertise a huge roam through 0.0 killing anything that flies(kind of like an agony roam). See how far it gets before every ship is taken down

U can invest it in me so i can do some more market manipulation and spend all my isk to killing goonies and make eve a better world for us all Wink

or i would buy 15 titan bpo's and start copy them for a 15x 4 x 13-15b profit each year,

Or u could hire me too do that for 20% of the yearly profit. It would work exelent if u start up a corp and lock down the bpo's Wink

Oh, so it's evil you're looking for. The worst thing I can think of: kill all the newbies.

Make it known that you're offering money for killmails of characters on a trial account. Offer a token sum for each kill -- 5 or 10 million, let's say. That's enough to motivate a newish pirate to go for the gank, but low enough that you can keep doing it EVE wide for quite a long time. Be lazy; hire people to go through the killmails for you.

Careful -- it's so outrageously evil that you'd probably get banned. CCP wouldn't like it if a whole generation of new players quit the game in confused rage because they couldn't leave a station without being ganked.

suggestions:
1) Buy two Faction/officer fitted "solo" titans and 2 alts to pilot them, hire out a solar system from a large alliance so its completely empty and fight with them, make a video. I for one would LOVE to watch that (EVEmail me with a link if thats already been done) then once one is killed/neither can break the others tank, sell them to the Alliance for a large chunk of your money back.

2) Buy one of the remaining high-sec capital ships and put all remaining ISK into a bounty on the pilots head. Then Leave station and advertise your where-abouts. Then watch the fleets roll in. (ps. join NPC corp so you cannot be war dec'd) Sit back and watch the fireworks as fleets of ships are vaporised by Concord.

All in all have fun, after all its just a game. You could always buy Time codes and sell them for real money, but thats a pretty obvious suggestion in my opinion.

I see you liked my idea, and TYVM for the iskies...was an awesome thing to login and see some extra isk :P If you really really like the idea.....I know a guy with 2 mothership ready (carrier 5 etc etc) pilots if u wanna try it...*wink wink nudge nudge*...are you actually gonna take any of these ideas? :) Maybe do each idea once or twice? (if affordable)

I dont expect even moar isk...but it would be nice..and I love giving out ideas :)

Another fun idea would be to take, say a dread guristas large tower..anchor it smack dab in the middle of goonspace/razorspace/pl space/ w/e space and load it up with hardeners. Hire a merc corp or take a bunch of friends/ppl with carriers and see how long you can keep it repped/surviving against their horde of dreads. Would be fun to skim the shields with like 20-30 ppl with chimeras repping the pos like nuts :)

If i had 1tri i would go and buy all ships in the game and officer fit them all.

as a show off :)

or you could give some to chribba and ask him to make some kind of event with big prizes in

or you could try the thing most ppl will think is scrams where you fly to a system and write in local that you got a big amount of isk and you will send the back the amount they send to you dubble up just to see how many thay will try to see if you was scrammingRazz

I know it might seem a waste but...

Go around and get yourself ransomed (on a different char).

Found out which pirates are "honourable" and release you, see who just kills you.

Then hire mercs to kill the "dishonourable" pirates.

Alternatively, buy yourself a spy and/or high-level char in an alliance.

Hire people to help you, steal all that alliances stuff.

Or

Assuming Yih's Goon plan isnt a fake, give him money and you will be party to a very historical event.

This may be best as you dont have to do anything, you can just have your name on it. Very Happy

Support new PvP'rs! Pay out large sums of money for trial accounts that get kills, vs non trials,

have a "trial account" tourney, 900k SP chars only, 4v4 or something along those lines, and pay out a hefty prize to the winners, and a few other prizes, funniest teams, most unusual chars, something along those lines.

wouldnt be something you would need to run even, im sure for iskies you could hire people to take care of the logistics and actual running of the tourney, put up the money for prizes, and ships for the teams, should be interesting
