Well for me it's pointless to have so manz accounts :/

1 = was too few, I lacked an industrial alt
2 = perfect, got one pvp/pve person, one industrial alt
3 = a bit of a waste, can't efficiently manage 3 at a time, unless they are just mining
4 = can't even have 4 clients on at the same time undocked or the client gets unplayable fps rate, plus it's not really fun to have so many toons really
5 = never had so many before now, now I got a few dozen because of the plex-for-buddy system, cyno alts everywhere, but those won't be too useful once they expire, may be needed one day...

So yeah, most fun and most efficient playing - 2 accounts tops, at least for me. With 5, stay with mining. Orca + 4 hulks and you can mine a lot, refine a lot and thanks to that build a lot. I'd go for capital production if I were you.

You don't need a bot to run that many characters to mine with. I ran 3 miners and an Orca character without a bot before. It isn't as difficult as you think if you run eve windowed so all you have to do is click the icon for the proper character in the taskbar.

Obviously selling the toons on the accounts is not an option. As far as the need for a lot of isks. My isk goes to my expensive hahits which is PvPing in expensive ships and gears. And GTC's. Thus the need for isks.


Either PvP in expensive ships, or pay for your account using GTC.

Alternately, join a mercenary corp so someone else will be paying you to PvP in expensive ships.

Missions I don't see how I can make more isks doing that then mining.


Mining in hisec will top out at about 7M ISK/hr. Mission running in hisec will net 10M ISK/hr in a T2-fit T1 hull, with minimal interaction, with the income rising from there as you spend more on offensive weaponry, pirate hulls instead of standard T1, or move into Marauders.

Or run incursions, earning around 60M ISK/hr for the one character, and leave your other characters harvesting ice.

Mining is what I been doing atm and its still only earns me about 1-1.5bill a day and that is if I mine for 8hours+.


You know, any "normal" person with 1 account (?) and playing in some reasonable way does about 1 to 3billion PER MONTH.

I've already got a lot to do with a single account, but I do have a second one witch I can't play at the same time for every thing else than put in some belt and take a look time to time -when I remember- if he's cargo's full or if he got ganked once again by some Anti-bot batmobile just because he's afk or he has 1M fees for convo Laughing

Why don't you just sell 3 of them and try to do something else? - I mean other than run for isk, seems you already have some piles of it so why don't you try something else?

Miilla, I know you get alot of flak on these boards at times, I dont post as much as I read... But I will say you took the words right out of my mouth. You need more than 1 Bil+ a Day? WTH kind of witchery is this? I guess you could be losing ALOT to some 0.0 war (/snicker) but seriously if you have been making that much in a short time let alone a long one... you need nothing but to have your head checked, and lay off multi-accounts. Makes you look like a "player".


I could try and explain to you why I need it but if you have not yet managed to grasp the why trough all of my other replies, then I feel its a waste of effort on my side to even attempt to do it so I choose not to do so. Instead I'll ask you to contribute to a solution to the problem I am inquiring about instead of going off topic and if you find yourself unable to do so then I'll have to ask you nicely to just stay silent. And keep your own off topic thoughts to yourself.

Thanks


Trust me, I am right on topic... What are you using those flasy billions and billions for, really? I mean do you suck at PvP or something, your Corp is failing so you need more?

Maybe your bored cause your running 5 ACCOUNTS!

Seriously if you can't find another way to make money (I shouldn't nor should anyone here have to tell you how)other than mining, its new game time bro.

Random thought that might help, put in profile. "Not a bot, I probably just distracted on my other account and forgot about this guy."

If you want you can even put your mains name.

Trust me, your not... What am I using those flasy billions and billions for, really? Seriously is not of your concern and I don't really see how knowing that would help you come up with a solution. Do I suck at PvP or something, my Corp is failing so I need more? Maybe so, maybe not, again whats it's relevance to my original question of what would you do if you had 5+accounts question? You starting to look like someone with a chip on his shoulder. Why do you need to know the reason behind it if you cant come up with a better solution then what I am already doing then why even bother? Reason behind my inquire is to see if someone is able to come up with a better solution then what I am already doing. Not why I am doing it etc etc..

Give me some good ideas and if it works better then what I am currently doing then there might be some rewards for you.



Why don't you mine 18 hours per day? This would improve your income!

This is where I am right on topic, there are so many ways to make money in this game, more money than mining... I suspect your short-sightedness is from all that brain numbing 5 account playing, mining crud. I don't have a chip on my shoulder, you just smell fishy man, real stinky like a ****** who has his hands cut off maybe?

Being someone who has 5+ accounts, the best way to make money without doing much, would firstly be PI, takes like a week to get okish skills and 5 planets, so with 5 accounts, your looking at 25 planets, which is about 5mins work a day.

Second thing, takes a little more time, but deffinatly worth it! R&D agents, take for example Lai Dai, run missions on one account and get level 4 missions, then have the other accounts in fleet when you finish level 4's, this will boost the standings of all your chars, train up the skill for more agents, voila, each account, 5 R&D agents, passive income of datacores.

Since the OP seems to consider playing the game a hassle in many activities, then just set up your bot and let tehm mine 24h/7d like most botters do.

Your income for expensive pew pew and GTC expenses will triple!!! you can have 15 accounts!!!

I am not sure how good this will do but I'll make another attempt in hopes that your mind can comprehend anything of what I been trying to convey to you all along.

I Am Already Mining And I Am Bored With It However Mining So Far Is The Only Thing Capable Of Providing Me Over A Billion A Day Thanks To Me Using 5+ Accounts. My Question Thus Is If Someone Else Can Come Up With Another Solution For Me To Make Isks Utilizing 5+ Accounts Other Then Mining? Obviously I Am To Shortsighted To Figure Out On My Own And Thus I Ask In Here In Hopes That Someone Less Shortsighted Can Provide Me With A Solution Rather Then Just Asking Stupid Questions That Borderlines To Interrogation And Name Calling Due To His Own Short-Sightedness.

I asked you nicely to lay off on my earlier replies to you unless you have something actually on topic and so far you have provided me with none. Instead you resorted to continuing with this ridiculous inquires of your own and name calling. If someone stinks in here Sir then that is you.

That's basically the same idea I have PI and R&D agents. Makes for a nice passive income and I can do some mining on occasions. Still looking to see if there are any other viable options.

Bot running I don't even consider as a viable option for obvious reasons.

Multiboxing is fun actually. You should try it. It's not like an "i win" button, I've gotten myself into situations where I almost lost, or have lost ships because I'm trying to manage the tank on 2 different characters at the same time. I blew through 3 drakes on level 4 WC and almost a Maelstrom one night lol.

I like dragging my alt along in an Orca as a mobile base when I want to scan down sites too. You also get the ability to try more parts of the game by specializing your other characters' skill sets without having to stop training your main.

One of these days I want to try multiboxing a gate camp lol That will be quite interesting I'm sure.

Since the first time I multiboxed an MMO, I have a hard time not multiboxing now. It's just boring to me to play 1 character at a time.

Trading. Buy low, sell high. You have significant capital from your mining activities to run a trading venture on a high level. Put characters from your 5 accounts into 5 different regions with high trading volume (Forge, Heimatar, Domain, Sinq Laison and a fifth of your choice). Watch the market, find the items with biggest profit and adjust your buy and sell orders in the trade hubs. It's not as free of work as PI and R&D though, but there are rumours that in trading is the big money.

Bloody hell, can't anyone take a joke on these boards any more? Rolling Eyes I used to quite happily mine / mission with 3 accounts across three machines (each was just good enough to happily run one client) and PvP on 2 accounts.

That said, it is the mining for 8+ hours per day that was the bot giveaway.

I am a reformed multi-boxer myself. Couldn't keep up with the extra characters anymore and it seemed a waste. Used the accounts to train bazaar characters for a few years then slowly canned them one by one as the characters sold this year. Currently down to two accounts and I really agree with the legion poster, it feels like the sweet spot. One industry focused character to take care of logistics, trading, building, and whatnot with a main for all the actual spaceship stuff.

I have 5 accounts and I use them for different uses. I Treat EVE Online as a hobbie than just a game like BF2 etc. EVE online is so deep compared to move games. Also I been playing since 04.

So what Do i use them for?
Mining
Trading
Production
Missions and starting to branch into research.
Time to time Ratting

I had a IPO and I really enjoyed using share holder investment to get the ships I need and start off. I enjoyed working hard getting isk and earning money like a real corp money as well. I also help using my resources to make a good environment and help to other players.

Now going to sound lame but EVE makes me happy as RL just freaking sucks. Sure I can make alot of money in 2 accounts but again I like my way of playing.

These so called people who are coming over righteous pricks "why don't you play eve with one toon like normal people" I am sorry but Narrow minded much? I say most eve players have 2 or more accounts.

"I only make 1.5 billion ISK a day"

Waah, I can only buy one Nyx a month, waah.

Go away. Serious, what the **** do you need 45 billion ISK a month for? More according to your belly aching. Try playing the game. P-L-A-Y-I-N-G it. Its a game, not a god damn job.

:cripes:

Most eve players have more than that and it's tragic. More alts, less teamwork, greater odds to overcome for every single-account player out there.

TL;DR: Cancel a few accounts and make some goddamn friends, you sad person.
