EVEologists, I seek you!

I sell liquor, but my at-work gaming is limited to one or two hours a day, and only in small segments.

I was told the medical community has "status monitoring" positions where your watching all the good stuff on the monitors, but also can devote 5 or 6 hours to online gaming.

Security Guard also came up, since they don't really have anything to do, its just a matter of brining your own hardware.

My buddy is a "Day Trader" but he also lives on my couch, and he plays a LOT of EVE, but he is also broke so day traders are apparently just failures overall =P

I need a job that will pay me at least $25 an hour, and allow for gaming.

I am willing to go "Full Effort" and get the appropriate degree to attain the position.


Thanks for helping me out, and remember helping new players is what EVE online is all about!

as you pointed the medical community can help a friend of mine work on a laboratory doing analysis, she can spent most of the night shift playing and almost doing nothing job related.

Also i owned a cyber-coffee for a while as long there is not much clients checking in and out you can spent all your work hours playing at comp.

but imho best job it's filthy rich you know when there is no need to work at all you can play non stop all day until you get bored

I was told by a friend who is in the Air Force that there are quite a few gamers within America's nuclear silos Rolling Eyes Not sure how much I actually believe it, but I have spoke with a guy who is a friend of my friend who is supposedly one of the officers in a silo. He 'confirmed' it.

They have frequent drills but beyond that, they just sit and wait for an attack. So what better thing to do than play EVE!

/Again, I don't know how much truth there is to this. Just something I had heard.

Sysadmin. See "nuclear silo watcher" above for similarities.
Freelance coder. Probably not paid 25$/hour unless you're really good and also fully work for that hour though.

The income is lowsy (700/month, if you're getting paid for it then it's a job right? Razz) but being physically disabled has the perk of being able to play whenever you want Razz

There was a network admin a while ago who posted about playing eve all day. He said his boss new about it, but since he was there to deal with any network issued and if he did his job right there would not be any his boss did not care. Not sure how true that was, but does have some advantages.

1) no one else monitoring your network use
2) Can make sure that the forums and the ports eve used are not blocked by the firewall
3) having an admin account for your work PC so you can install eve on it.

not sure how well paid it was.

Humanities Research Fellow (work from home) Cool

The only problem is you'll need multiple degrees (about 10 years in the US although it's possible to do it in 6-7 in the UK). Hopefully eve will still be up by the time you're finished but the Ph.D. stage is just like the job work-wise.

Isn't a pimp the one who gets slapped rather than the one who slaps? Also, in that case, a pimp can't play because his hands are always on the move. Maybe you'll get to play during downtime but I think that is the last thing you'll be thinking about.

Isnt the whole point at being at work is to be doing work? I can understand if the job is like menial and boring where all you do is baby sit a box, but hte be rather horrible to lose your job to eve if something bad where to happen to the box. Closest job that can probably meet your demands is however probably a Eve online developer but your more likely going to be playing on the chaos server than tranquility.

I used to work nights as a security and customs offical for the port authority in my hometown. Mostly it involved monitoring anchored cargo ships on CCTV, once in a while we'de get a cuban/phillipian/hong kong sailor and/or deckhand that would make a run for it and try ninja-immigrating to canada, other than that 99% of my time was spent playin EVE.

/confim I used to game like crazy while doing night audit at a hotel.

Actually anything nightshifty would be really decent. Just don't get fired for playing EVE and not working!

I can play and work at the same time, and pretty much do it all day.

Most of the time on shift as a firefighter/paramedic you can do whatever you please as long as you're not on call and you're ready to leave whatever it is you're doing immediately when the tones go off.

Any time that a half-decent freelancer devotes to playing Eve is time that could be dedicated to working/getting new business etc. So not the best job if you want to play loads of Eve..

Lol, the professor of Eve... I thought 'multiple degrees' and dedicating yourself to a life of scholarship and research would mean that there'd be little time for Eve during normal working hours?

I'm surprised no one mentioned the IT helldesk. All you do is sit in front of a PC waiting for calls to come in. And the jobs are mostly repetitive and mindless problems to solve. I got numerous hours of EVE in while I was doing a stint in IT support. There are some environmental requirements though, such as having the privileges to install EVE and not getting crap for it from coworkers.
