When i believe it was trinity came out and they made it so exploration sites dropped the loot more often. I was doing alot of exploration sites at the time. and with the increase ammount of drops. and the prices still very high because the change has just happened i made about 2billion in about a day or so. Thats when i really got the money ball rolling

COSMOS Implant, followed by invention (spent a billion on the decryptor, interface and SB and made a billion back in a month), then did T2 component manufacturing for 6 months with 4 bil in seed fund and made approx 14 bil total, repaid mostly back to investors.

The first Billion I made by ratting in 0.0 with my main.
Than I was lucky to get a Barrage M,Barrage S and LADAR tech II BPO at the lottery in 2 weeks time which I sold all together for 4,5 billion.
Once you have that kind of money you can start trading and make profit by 10's and 100's of millions in the market.

Also, this was the point where EVE started to bore me.

Hard work and care.

Mind you, I don't own a double digit amount of billions.
Same here. The trick to making money is not to waste it and be careful how you spend it. Harder to practice in RL but in Eve I've played the markets, manufactured, mined and missioned (the four 'M's Laughing).

Mind you, 11 billion isn't all that much for someone who's been playing for over 4.5 years.

Government bailout application form.

Have you ever:

[ ] Failed to understand what you are doing?
[ ] Gambled with other people's money?
[ ] Made money by moving numbers around rather than proper work?
[ ] Waited until the last minute before 'fessing up?

NB:Obtaining government money requires a score of at least 3 out of 4

I made my first billion within the first month of playing Eve, I entered the game with the goal of getting together a lot of isk fast, so I concentrated on trading. Mainly buying 250mm railguns and hauling them to sell for over 100% profit.

I also got lucky with two faction spawns in empire and got over 100m out of them, gotten a couple of billion out of pvp loot, well over a billion from suicide ganking, ratting/missioning/plexs, but by far most of the isk I've made comes from trading.

Gun trade between empires, implant trade, and BPO resell.

This days I would also go for Datacore and skillbook trade.

This is a question for any billionaires out there. How did you do it? No specifics of course as you dont want others to cut into your bread and butter.

I trade and manufacture.

If you dont feel comfortable, dont post with your main.

I'd cry a little inside every time someone paid back their loans after I double scrammed and droned their faction fitted mining ships, but at least I made my first billion! Laughing

0.0 ratting, had a couple of faction spawns, and made about a billion in about a month Shocked

Now im a pirate and **** broke, so i made a mission alt, which pays the way :P

Posted - 2008.10.03 12:46:00 - [86]

I asked my friends for ISK and it added up over a billion. Then I went with my other account which is in a real corp I have been since day 1 of EVE and picked up all the items in stations that my CEO forgot to pay bills on and made a few billion off that. I love my CEO. Surprised

Not going to tell you for free.

If I would tell you, you would be stinky rich.. and I am not talking about a few billion... Twisted Evil
I only allow you to become rich of my information if you are willing to invest Wink
Usualy it requires an investemt of about 500M isk that you have to make and I can make you golden. (asuming that is what you are after by asking this)
