...still in the grand scheme of things i imagine im dirt poor compared to the people that make a living of raking in ISK..

Raking ISK, now that must be a well paying job.

I remember reading a post about two weeks back by a mate claiming to have 3 trillion isk. Shocked

Whether or not that's true, I can't say, he never provided a doctored screenie. You could, like, PvP forever and never give a rat's ass about dying.

according to my own evaluation I am closeing in on 30bisk in assets.. - however I know people much more wealthy than me... so who really is the most wealthy person - I guess we will never know.

(just try to think of a person who owns a cap recharger II bpo)

Mining, selling, building, scamming, trade - whatever. My personal favorite is missions (carebear, away! Bug off :P).

Best I have ever had was 2 billions and some spare money...Selling a tachyon II BPO ^^
Now I've only 350 millions more or less.
Before the sell, I used to have 20 millions max.

He probably Ebayed it all in the end, but for a while, Morbor (the pyramid scheme investment scammer dude from 18 months back) must have been the richest person in Eve.

Maybe a grand total of 1 Bill for me, in ISK and assets. Perhaps a bit more.

Heres my version of the question: what the heck drives people to acquire much more than a billion? With what I've got now I simply have no desire to continue accumulating wealth. It would take a MASSIVE stroke of bad luck to put any kind of dent in my personal wealth, so why bother? I can spend a few hours here and there NPC'ng to replace any losses. ISK bounties and named loot sales, plus crap loot recycling means theres almost no reason to spend ISK, least for me Very Happy

All you massive money people are nuts Wink

I had 7 isk 4 weeks ago. Count em 1 2 3 4 5 6 7. ugh

Luckily I have played eve a year and have never recycled anything or sold anything - was probably why I have always been skint. My hangers were bursting at the seams. So it has been sell sell sell for a month. I almost have enough to buy some torps now .. Smile

You reach a point in this game when you can't help but make money.

I took a break from printing ISK, to go kill something.

4 hours later. 15 mill in bounties and rewards. 10 mill in loot. 25 mill in in zydrine, megacyte and nocxium.

Thats 50 mill having fun, not trying to make a profit.

Yeah but what, was that pvp? pvp is the REAL fun / isk sink.

Mine goes up and down depending on what nice things appear on the market and escrow, but never goes below 500m. Total assets probably 4bn if I counted them up.

Wealth needed to collect each standard (for now) ship available. Cool

Can check my homepage for status on that project, started to kill boredom. Very Happy
it's a bit outdated atm though.

Nope, but we do PvP. Have to be in the mood for it though, for quick hits of PvP the corp hits our COD UO server. PvP is not as big a money sink as it used to be with the insurance changes. I can remember BS loss being a game stopper for some people. Now you can recoup insurance loss in no time at all. You don't have to be in 0.0 to do it either. Once you're at a certain level, if you played for 8hrs in a day you can lose 4 BS in that period without any worry. You can end up sat in the same BS at the end of the 8hrs. Standard equipment and a few tech2 items only mind you. You don't have to be in 0.0 either.

It's pretty easy to make a consistent 20mil an hour in Empire, it's just boring. I found a 27m/hour money maker last week so a few tedious hours of that got me a new equipped BS which I took straight into 0.0 for some fun Very Happy

Making money in 0.0 space can be much faster though, with a bit of luck.

Originally by: Susie Homemaker
Well, I personnally make over 100 million a day so that's 3 billion a month.

You do the math. Very Happy

I would LOVE to know how the heck you make that sort of cash so fast!!??

Posted - 2005.02.09 14:22:00 - [83]

I have only 500m at the moment, plus 5 battleships (scorp, raven, geddon, apoc, megathron) and about 400m in mods (named and tech II). I think I'm pretty average in terms of wallet size.

Those with many billions probably either got a nice tech II blueprint or don't mind mining every day for their whole lives. Personally, everything I do in Eve I get sick of after a while and have to go do something else. Mining last month. Agent missions this month. Next month, who knows.....

I keep swinging between 1 mill and 100 mill in ISK, not more then 1 BS a few cruisers and frigates.
Rest get's invested in corp and corpmates.
I have a few very good friends in my corp so I reckon I rather have 2 or 3 people I can trust 200% then a few bill.

I don't play enough and I'm too lazy to make ISK. As long as I've got enough to pvp I'm happy!!

247mil isk, 30k Megacyte and two interceptors

Havent really made much isk from Carebearing in the past, mined for about 10 hours in cache and did some npcing for about a week somewhere in curse.

I just seem to generate isk in strange ways, maybe one day someone will eject from his battleship, thats enough isk to allow me to lose another 2. Another some items i have had might rise in value and i am able to sell them for a lot more than i bought them for.
