You can make tens of millions/day with PI. Just leave the extracting to others and do the processing/factory work.

Edited for grammar fail =P

I would call pulling in 8k in taxes a RL success story actually. When you need more isk, you need to work more in RL, which is a positive feedback loop. When you get tired of eve, you can always fallback to your RL success.

The problem with PI isn't how long it takes to click all the extracts.
It's the fact you have to click the extractors.

The sink is based on clicks when it could be based on intelligence and creativity.

Who cares about isk, it's just not a fun game once the wack-a-mole component comes in.

The only real advantage is that you can click your resurveys while in warp etc. [...] When I now log in, I ask myself: 'do I want to zoom in on my planets and restart the extractors?', 'Do I really want to fly over to my planets in a hauler, do the import/export thing and fly back again'? More often than not the answer is a resounding: 'no'.
I agree. The ONLY reason I am bothering with PI at all is because I fly a freighter on a regular basis, some of those warps take a LONG time, and it's nice to get some 'free' fuel for my towers. I'm sure the investment will pay off in a month or two.

I have heard of people making hundreds of millions a week with PI and I don't see how this is possible. Maybe they just have a dozen accounts? Or maybe I'm just dense. Entirely possible.

In any case... CCP, I'm sending you the bill for my RSI.

I couldn't agree more that pulling in $8k in taxes isn't bad but I think the negative connotation is more that spending $1000 on ingame cash is somewhat ridiculous. And it is.

Would you have so strong a opinion on where some else spends their hard earned cash if he had spent it on anything else?

I really don't understand why people have such a big problem with people wasting their money on a game compaired to wasting it on every other unneeded luxury item in our lives.

I set up 3 planets with 15, 14 and 10 extractors...

That comes to 159 clicks to activate them... Rolling Eyes

1) Double click extractor
2) Double click time
3) sumbit

Finished

That would be 195 clicks total... Hardly an improvement...

(15 * 4) + (14 * 4) + (10 * 4) + 3 = 159
The 15/14/10 are the number of extractors. The 4 is two double-clicks. The 3 is a submit per planet.

Must be pretty high on the list of most crappy interfaces ever...



if you dont like clicking, i would think that playing pc is a bad idear..

tbh I would just save up all the RL iskies I make by not doing PI and avoiding wear and tear on my mouse and buy a PLEX thats gotta be worth a few hundred mill a month passively.

I think the clicking should be taken away from PI. Then make PI so that if you just leave your factories running, you make some income maybe like currently or a bit less. But then if you actually spend time doing things in your factories, then you make a lot more money. That way there will be no "boring clicking" anymore. Instead, those who want to do "planetary things", can do them and really do PI for a change, if they get bored about something else for a while.

Real PI could contain things that you land onto your factories and shoot robbers, fix some problems to improve efficiency above the passive efficiency level, install mods into your factories, research something, etc. This would be more interesting and offer proper alternative income source too.
