If I didnt make so much ISK mining I would try PvP. Everytime I think about trying PvP I think about all the ISK I will lose waiting arround trying to kill someone.

If you go 50-50 you should end up plus minus zero?

What good does the stockpiled ISK do you?

I thought the sole reason for making ISK was to blow it on PvP.

Okay? Thanks for telling us I guess.

Maybe you could look at what you need all that isk for and think if you'd have fun doing something else? There are 'quick' fights like in Red vs Blue or other more random/lopsided 'encounters' on the test server both of which are low to no cost and take virtually no effort to get a 'fight'.

So, can't you just mine while you wait?

If I didn't have so much fun PvPing I would try mining. Every time I think about trying mining I think about all the fun I will lose waiting around for my mining lasers to cycle.

When I mine, I think about what I'll do with the isk I'll make. I think about the other people in the system, that guy over there creeping closer, the pirate that just popped into local and who they'll blow up next. Then I begin to wonder. Do they like beer and burritos as much as I do?

Making the assumption that you have multiple accounts (or else, how can you claim you make ISK mining Confused )

Just PvP while mining. Cool

I have three accounts. One Orca and 2 mining ships. You cant make good ISK with only one account. I am actually thinking about adding another account so I can have 3 mining ships.

Why does everyone think pvp ships cost tens of millions? I mean you can take a T1 frigate fitted with T2 modules and you're pewpewing. Costs like...5mil when properly fitted. Of course you will loose it (most likely) , but you will loose a T2/T3 ship also. Ok, so you might not get a T2 kill, but that doesn't mean there isn't other people to kill.

Think like this. How long does it take you to earn 10mil while mining? You get at least two frigates that are well fitted with that price. Also, don't wait around. Head into areas where you know you can shoot anything that moves. If you are waiting for reddies to come to you in a safe area....you'll be waiting for a looonngg time. Just head out into their parts and keep moving.

Assuming this isn't a troll (quite likely though), what are you going to use all ISK for if you don't PVP?

Nah. Everyone and their stepmother measures success on the size of the wallet. So a thick EVE wallet tells about a fair success in EVE.
