No.

Why should I do your work for you? Figure it out on your own. Also, these shenanigans belong in Market Discussions.

It entirely depends on the market for where you are. You can't really say "Go self-destruct Ravens, they make great insurance fraud ships!" because it really isn't true everywhere or all the time. In fact when certain ships dig into the "red zone" their pricing is only there for a matter of hours because people take notice and start doing exactly what you plan on doing.

Good question. Any Marauder is a great ship to use for insurance fraud. It's a big investment, but you make a nice 10% profit.

At the moment navy dominix's will get you about 200% profit when you explode them, I know because I have a few stashed away. Unfortunately I can't fly them, therefore I can't self destruct for the insurance. Mail me ingame and maybe we can work out a deal.

Any ships you hold a well researched bpo for. Anything else its not worth the time doing unless you really are a bottomfeeder.

edit: post above me is true as well. So either make any ship you have a BPO for or buy and blow up some marauders.

Well, the cat's out of the bag... Any faction ship can get you a tidy profit when suicided. Normally, however, they don't.


See, there's this feature whereby, if you take your faction ship to the Jita 4-4 Navy undock ramp, and then grab from any can you can reach, your ship automatically self-destructs. Only then will you get a profit from the insurance.

This, incidentally, is why it's always so busy on the Jita 4-4 Navy undock.

As for the profit; get battleships. A Navy issue Raven easily nets you a 100 million profit,

While we're being really obvious about this, be sure to get your faction ships from one of the many honest traders in local Rolling Eyes

With normal hulls you can just self-destruct them and get a meager payout. The real money rolls when you max-insure faction ships and let them die!

The glitch with these ships is that they're very powerful. If you're going to self-destruct it anyway, you can also take it to a lvl-4 mission with, THIS IS IMPORTANT, tech 1 drones to match your bandwithe. This will cost you like 40k isk, and will earn you more ISK by killing npc rats while your ship is dying.

The deal goes like this: You fly into a mission with your hull + drones, you kill 3 or 4 ships before they kill you. Dying takes about as long as the self-destruct timer, but while you're self-destructing you can earn so much extra since the powerful factionships can do a lot of damage on the rats while they're getting killed. When you die you get both the mission bounties, and the full insurance payout, while you hardly spent any extra time!

We all know, time well spent = money!

Dramiel, Gila and Cynabal. There's a REASON why these are so expensive. Most people will give you the smokescreen "they're very good ships" but in truth there's an issue with them which CCP holds quiet till the next patch; you get an inflated insurance payout on them.

The thing is that you get the inflated insurance as a second mail which has like an hour delay, so you self destruct the ship and get the normal payout and 60 minutes later you get another payout wich is 10 times more than normal.

So you're best off to buy a whole bunch of those ships, do NOT insure them and then self destruct them asap (takes 2 minutes for self destruct and another minute or so to (un)dock) so you can do 20 of those ships in an hour. Then after the first hour the extra rewards start trickling in.


I expect CCP to delete this topic now so if you read this, be quick about it as the patch that'll fix this is around the corner.

Any ship that sells for less than 70% of it's base value, using platinum insurance (costs 30% base value, pays out 100% base value).

If you buy a ship for 1 million ISK less than 70% of its base price, platinum insure it, blow-it up, then you make 1 million ISK.

Tier 3 tech 1 battleships are most popular (like the Rokh).

You can look-up the base value here.

hi, this only works for industrials and freightors maxed out, so a full cargo hold ( cargo expanders included. depending on the item you make more money, reason is insurance pays 90% of whats in your hold but it mistakes every item for more than what it is, example, it gives you 5isk for tritanium. market value is around 2.6isk elsewhere.

This should be in CAOD. Self destructing is how many of the large alliances are so rich.

Or this thread should be in market discussions, since selfdestruction is how traders and industrialists might earn their money!

There's a new game mechanic which has just come out where any T2 BPC's destroyed with your ship will payout 100m per blueprint but ONLY if they completely fill the cargohold of a T2 ship.

I suggest getting a marauder, filling it with T2 BPC's (should take roughly 100m BPC's to fill) then self-destructing. You'll automatically be the richest person in Eve.
