As an active trader, I'm sitting here with an evil grin on my face and a bottle of Crown Royal, and wondering what the most effective ways of getting hatemail tears from other traders would be?

For anyone who is willing to contribute, please share your best market PvP tip.

Mucho gracias.

Enter into a market and when you get .01's raise it by 500 per. Make a 3000 per profit item into a 500 or so per profit item. Find the right market of course and the right high volume product. Ive recieved a few hatemails from this. Mind you it won't work on a trader that doesn't consider a market their personal territory or a given margin their right.

And make sure when you do it that your order is big enough to take a week or two to fill.

Find what's being sold in the Modules Trade channel, buy them from contracts and start re selling them in that channel 1 mil cheaper than the rest. If they lower, you lower. If they start *****ing, troll them.

I got someone to buy something I got for 111 mil off contracts for 120 just cuz he wanted 130 for it. Mind you, I only had tears in mind like you did.

I don't know about the other complicated market stuff Neutral

go into a minor trade hub, and buy everything.... i mean minor, not like jita or amarr, i mean one of the smaller mini hubs that pop up sometimes.... buy all the minerals, drones, ships, weapons, ammo.

OK... OP, you're welcome to do this to any of the minor trade hubs I trade in. I'd be very happy to haul some more stock out and set my orders up again. I'll be sure to send a completely genuine sounding hate mail about how long it'll take me to count the profits and haul more goods out there.

Crush the margins on high volume items like Cap Rechargers. Only list a portion of your stock at a time. That way if anyone tries the buy and relist strategy you just pop another order on the market.

Become a scammer, those always yield tears.

Or

Find really profitable erm, stuff, and post your findings right onto the forums, your sure to get both ANGRY tears and happy ones... but the question is, if you do find something Nice, will you be tempted to haul/resale or whatever yourself?

Market trading, its like the beginning and the end, cant deal with it and cant deal without it.

Another thing, Week trolling will only incite pointy fingers and laughter at you, because most of the traders are experienced and tearz can only be extracted if you cause more then several hundred KK loss in revenue, Im still somewhat of a new merchant with less then half a year under my belt and even 50 million loss of revenue wont phase me, so ya... think hard before you speak and 10 times harder before you put your money where your mouth is, it just might be a trap!
