Three possible ones.

A: Invest in tons of long term IPOs.

B: Bail out EBank on the condition they will pay you back 200%.

C: Invest all your money on Shuttles, proceed the crash market prices in an attempt to undermine the Goon war effort. (Cause we all know they buy shuttle futures)

I would see how stupid peaople are.
First I'd post a thread saying I'll send 1 billion for the best idea per page.

Then I would sit back and see how long it would take for someone to post 30 blank posts from 30 new trial accounts.

offer 1 billion isk for the best haiku about your socks

buy one of the the last remaining silver magnate's or guardian vexors and give it to a new player you like on the condition that he must consistently use it until it is destroyed or he outgrows it, in which case he must give it to another new player he finds deserving. They must send you a recap of how it was destroyed.

create a "thanks" thread, give any character that is thanked 10 million isk

buy a titan, self destruct it

I would become a reverse pirate. Build yourself a few well equiped PvP ships, and set a course for low-sec. Become a lone wolf pirate.

Lock newb's down, scram em, and start negotiating their ransom. Each time you ransom one have the convo look like this:

You: 50mil or your ship
victim: I cant pay 50mil!
You: (transfer isk) You can now...have a nice day.

And then warp off. If someone actually pays the ransom, then double it going back to them for being a good sport. If they whine/go emo...then burn them down.

Actively disruptive cap ship market manipulation. You could play this in any number of ways, but I would suggest that you create several alts in several regions, and, waiting until Dominion begins and brings conflict with it, purchase every dreadnought available on the market, as well as all in contracts. Additionally, I would place as many orders with major alliances and producers as you can afford for these ships, using different characters, and I would keep them tied up in stations for as long as possible.

Make it your goal to, through your network of buyers, to make Eve a war of capital attrition for a month or two.

Is this feasible? Maybe not, but if it is, you would become an extremely powerful man.

You could try something similar with faction ships, working to keep them as low priced as possible. Snap them off of contracts and let it be known that you'll sell them at massively reduced prices on a first-come first-served basis.

Basically, see if you can remove an element of the game for even a short period of time.

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.

♥ Desolation Angel


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==


I think this would be pretty awesome. I actually found one of the red bull stashes last week. OMG to be able continue my hunt in EvE would be Epic. Even if you don't select this guys to be the winner you should at least get with him and figure out how to make this happen cause Me and about 10 other buddies were talking about this exact idea last week and someone needs to do it for sure.

I also like the lowsec 'Robin Hood' idea, but it needs scaling up. Not enough noobs in lowsec, and needs some expertise the OP might not have. I propose hiring mercs to invade CVA space and play Robin Hoods to the CVAs Sherrif of Nottingham. Put the RPG back into MMORPG. Same idea, larger scale. If the 1B thing is legit, please credit the original idea.

If I were you, I'd do anything I could to mess anything up.

Heavily disrupt Jita's market

Heavily disrupt the market

Completely close off the low-sec of one region through mercenary corporations

Buy every limited item you can. Tourny prize ships, T2 BPOs, etc. After completely controlling the 'rare' market, slowly sell everything for 50x what you bought it for.

Make your own market in a non-trade hub system. The most risky, but possibly extremely profitable.

The best:
Hire mercenary corps (the best you can find, and enough of them!) to move into and take control of a 0.0 region owned by a 0.0 alliance, preferably a really big one. Inform all of them that they'll be working together, have them formulate their takeover plan (or if it's even feasible), and completely take control of the region.

Make sure your money continually grows. It's better to have 10 trillion after a month than 10 billion left and a war you have to fund by yourself.

Edit: On an earlier page, someone suggested hiring mercenary corps to take on CONCORD, in the mother of all fleet battles. Sounds like a good idea to me, if it's possible.

I have 2 idea's

1> Fun/Costly Idea: Pay goon's to get rid of TCF, RAZOR Alliance and Wildly Inappropriate(I.E Get goon's to attack TCF, RAZOR, WI to lose sov) I think that would be one fun and awesome thing to hear about and watch on the maps.... Just think you could start:Well: A "Super War" Could you image all the mayhem?

Wow that' sounds awesome anyways to stir up some new war action, Tired of hearing about all these Bank scams. That map shift would be amazing!

2> : Support my future plan's to make a "Player" Time line of all major event's From WARS to x-pack's etc. A goal i have told a few corp mates about, a super time line rather. Something so i can keep eve in my life even off-line! WinkQuestion

3> Look at my skill plan and tell me what i should do with my life.

Thanks for the ideas. I will indeed be running with some of them, though not always necessarily the ones that win the 1B, and not always in their full original form.

I will also need to make the ultimate decision soon I guess - am I going to find something(s) interesting enough to do to keep on playing, or am I going to quit? I know large-scale industry is done for me, I won't ever again be "tied" to the game as I used to be. But on the other hand it's a bit depressing somehow to close the door on around 1.3T worth of hard graft. Come on, somebody break out the world's smallest violin Laughing

Anyway, I will choose winners for the last few pages and pay out a little later today. Keep the ideas coming.

Oh, and it's been quite heartening to see hardly any negative posts on here. I genuinely need some inspiration and thought this the best way to get it, but this thread could have easily become a "put your e-peen away" flame-fest. So thanks.

I think it's more along the line's most of us see it past the "e-peen" stage and onto a "Great Feat" Which really it is. Cool

Pay players to write Leowen with secure cans at every gate in the Eve universe. It will be impossible to travel anywhere without being reminded of you.

After they recover from their fanfest hangovers, CCP will remember they said something about the need for speed some time ago and alter the game to make this behaviour impossible on the basis that it improves database speed. The change will become known as "The Leowen Patch".

Forum trolls will start more threads on the topic than they did on unholy rage thus ensuring that your name lives forever!

Go on a Roaming op with all the best Movie Makers, have them all fraps it, and have every one in gang to be in a pimped out faction BS, and try to make a really epic pvp movie out of it

Something like that will make thousands of people know who you are and remember you

i have a few ideas:

1) fly out to an active 0.0 warzone and buy ALL of the ships on market, along with ALL plates, shield extenders, and weapon unpgrades.

force em to go fight in active tanked ships Very Happy

2) anchor secure cans around the eve galaxy, with bookmarks inside. have bookmarkes named with a code, and have various prizes. for example, isk. or a faction battleship. or 5-10 merc corps wardeccing the person for 2 weeks.

its all good.

3) ****SHAMELESS PLUS**** play poker with it, go all in on multi-billion hands, have lulz.

4)open trade randomly with people in 4-4 and drop 1 tril in the window. don not hit accept, just sit there and laugh as they try to claim it. make a bookmark called "lol noob" or something.

5) its been said, but i cant restate this enough: buy all the plex cards in 4-4, relist for either a huge price or a tiny one, depending on how nice you are.

6) randomly type in a 3 letter combination into the "people and places" window. convo the people who show up. give them a mothership and a mothership pilot. then watch as they struggle to deal with a supercap and no logistics Laughing

7) buy several faction battleship in jita, offer to eject from it at planet one, self destruct/smartbomb. rinse and repeat until you feel content and/or are -10.

8) do trivia in jita local. youd be surprised how much fun it can be.

9)have curzon dax commission a song for you based on a ridiculously stupid track (may i recommend eye of the tiger just to **** with him?)

10) officer fit a t1 frig/noobship, go pvp.


i think thats it for now, ill post more if i can find some.

It's been tossed out before, but it could be done really well, with some help.

1. Recruit a serious PvP fleet, offer best ship of their choice with best mods. Form new corp with this group led by a noob alt.

2. Have noob alt just travel around to well known gate camps and get ganked. Have him emo raging against the guys who killed him. Then he comes back with some more noob alts and fights and epic loses, vowing to return with whole corp tommorow.

3. The "trailer park trash" gate campers must be goaded to come out in force...and now bring in the ringers! MELT the gate camp, their stations and everything dear to them.

4. Move on to next group of Happy Gate campers, new corp of noob alts, rinse and repeat.

You can tell I hate gate campers and would love to help out in the organizational and time consuming stuff.

If my math is right........

300,000,000 isk x 500 = 150,000,000,000 isk
30 day's x 500 = 15,000 day's
15,000 Divided by 365 = to about 41 years


Umm that isn't even half his money and thats half the plex market GREAT IDEA hahaha...

Edit: There's roughly an avg 2,000 plexs on the market at an avg of 280 mil isk = to about 600 billion, I think you can buy the whole market of plexs :P

build a PlayerOwnedStation, but with a difference, a station designed to be selfsufficient(as much as you can) with the focus to be defensive, that cannot be destroyed, and put it into a highly populated area of 0.0 space? (or least populated) consider it a homage for pirates, the ultimate test? and also youll come back online and more often than not, run about with a salvaging vessel, hoovering up even more cash?
