Let's do some quick math here...

If we assume that a 60d GTC is going for an average of 750m at the moment (whatever, It's just a number), and Haar moved just under 14 trillion liquid ISK from BoB to Goonswarm, and one month of game time is valued at about $15.00 US... that amounts to approximately $315,000.00 equivalence in real life money.

This isn't including all of the other hard assets like the ships, the BPOs, and who knows what else, much less the sov issues and capital construction yards and so on.

How long do you think it's going to take Goonswarm to launder the ISK into real life cash? How many characters are they going to have to buy with ISK and Ebay? How much money did Haargoth get paid to sell out his buddies, if indeed he did sell them out in the first place? (Who knows, it could all be BS at this point, we'll see how permanent things are in a month from now)

And on that note, Haargoth, if you didn't get PAID, in real life cash money, then you missed the boat buddy. I'm sure Walter Mitty, er, Mittani or Mittens or whatever he's called could afford to throw you a few grand or so for your gift, no? Hell, I'd be asking for fifty large for something of that magnitude. Easy. Even if there's really only a thousand or so warm bodies behind Goonswarm's numbers, that's only $50 per member tossed into a paypal account as a donation. Pocket change.

How deep does the rabbit hole go?

Actually, it was 14 billion isk (so not that much) that was taken from BNC. However, the greatest part about it all, was that he didn't have to get paid anything.

He just flat out thought it was more fun in GS than BoB.

LOL. That's what I get for reading big numbers at five in the morning. I thought it was trillions, not billions. Doh. Embarassed

Ah well, I guess I expected something a little more grand out of BoB. 14b is crap. Meh. I guess the real loss is in their cap ship production line then.

Mittens has to be the luckiest person in Eve right now. I mean, seriously, for something this easy to simply fall into his lap? It's a once in a lifetime experience. Bad luck for Bob, good luck on Goonswarms part. But that's the really funny part- it was just blind luck, if you're to believe Mitt's audio of it. No months of planning, no scheming. Just some ******* who want's to hose Bob (and get's ensnared in a goon recruitment scam? WTF? What a MORON.).
