Due to my urge to help keep the Eve economy stimulated by new players who are struggling with making ISK, I've decided to offer financial assistance (in the form of small loans) to a few new players who genuinely need it.

Sure, you should earn your iskies like any other hard working pilot, but we've all been there - so new to the game and overwhelmed that you just had no clue where to start - and the argument can be made if you have better ships/items to begin with, it can launch you ahead of the curve so that self-sufficiency is easier to obtain.

Anyway, no scams or anything here. I'm going to loan an unknown amount of isk to new players (by new, I'm talking about a month old or less).

I ask that you at least try to make an effort to repay the loan when you can (when you get going in your Eve career). That way you don't feel like you're just getting a hand-out without at least making an effort to make good on it.

So how do you claim your stimulus package?

Post in this thread why you need a loan (are you trying to save up for a mission running ship? Mining vessel? etc etc). The more specific you can be, the more likely you are to receive help.

Also, I know other players will flame away, but perhaps there are other kind souls that would be willing to join me in helping stimulate Eve's rookies? If so, feel free to contact me or fulfill requests directly.

This is more of a pilot program right now - let's see how it goes and maybe we can go somewhere with this Very Happy

I wonder how long it will be until someone starts 20 trial accounts, roll 60 new toons, take out 60 loans from you, wire all the money to their main, and then let the trials run out.

@ Jacob
A long time considering you can not wire money on a trial any more.

Cool Idea bro! I see the possible gain for you, but eve will still be a better place for your actions

Bleh, then just abuse the buddy system to get plex for converting some trial accounts. Or simply keep rolling and biomassing toons on existing accounts.

I'll let you in on a little secret.

I think a better version of the stimulus would be to rob those players of everything they have, then laugh at them, and give them a t1 fit rifter telling them to come to lowsec and find you.
