1. I don't' mind the price increase, but then again I have been working on being self-sufficient for a while.
2. Jack of all trades with a fairly diverse skill set. I log in and do what I want to do. I started out as a miner and will return to it as I feel after Hulkageddon.
3. The changes to the mission loot tables are painful (just finished scrap metal reprocessing two days before the change). The size and power of the Noctis is now overkill, hell I've fitted an armor tank since I don't need the cargo space anymore.
4. I've been playing for a total of two years (on and off over three years)
5. I have 4, only 2 are active, soon to be at 1 when the sub dies.
6. Hi-sec, but roam to Low and WH when i feel like it. I prefer to be solo right now so there is little point in going to 0.0

1. Do you personally like or dislike the increase in mineral and follow-up costs and why?

Don't mind. I can still afford to do what I do. A dynamic market mixes the game up. It should bring opportunity for someone, and shifts money around to the people who are paying attention and adaptable. Too bad I'm hopeless at trading.

2. What is/are your profession(s) in Eve?

Conquistador. (Low-sec exploration mostly, with forays into null.) But I try a lot of different things and have had the pleasure of failing at a variety of eve activities at some time or another. This month, it's forum posting.

3. Do you feel you gained or lost from the change?

My game hasn't changed, so neutral. Monetarily, I suppose my ISK is worth less, but it's just filling a shoe-box under my CQ bed anyway, so what else am I going to do with it?

4. How long did you play?

Coming up on 5 years now. Usually pretty casual.

5. How many accounts do you have?

One account, paid with cash. I suspect that inflation is much less of a problem if you are not part of the PLEX rat-race.

6. What sec status systems do you mostly live in?

Ghetto sec. (Low)

1. Change is always good, it creates opportunities.
2. As far as this topic is concerned a humble arms dealer in backwater Gallente space.
3. The price of manufactured goods has risen more than the price of minerals so I've gained some.
4. 8y 9m 1w
6. Mostly high-sec

I like them. They're a side effect of making mining a viable profession again and encouraging miners to leave high sec for high end minerals. The effect on me personally is negligible. The price of stuff I buy went up, but so did the price of stuff I sell.

1. It's not a matter of like and dislike. It's 'dealing with' the increase.
2. Miner/PI/Mission. Basically anything the mittani hates.
3. Gain a fortune, comparatively, from Grav Sites
4. Have played for slightly over 2 years.
5. 3 Accounts, 6 Toons
6. I've resided in most of the ".5 Clusters".

1. I love it. I bought most of my ore when it was cheaper, so my margin on the minerals is higher than normal. Even with the prices inflated, the ore prices always line up to where I can make a profit.
2. Refiner, minor mining on the side.
3. Isk, plain and simple.
4. This is this character's 3rd month.
5. 1
6. I live in a .6, but am opening operations in some .3 and .4 systems nearby.

In the cat-and-mouse game that is low sec, there is no shame in learning to be a better mouse.

1. I don't like it(look at 3rd answer to see why). I may like it in the future though. I'm thinking of becoming a miner, what with all this BS hapening and prices inflating.
2. Mission / Incursion runner.
3. Because of the dramaticly risen prices since about autumn / winter and now with the inferno changes every time I will buy something I will loose more isk BUT there's no way to gain more isk in the professions I accupy, they won't be buffed, only nerfed it seems.
4. About 4 years though I haven't been active some times for extended periods of time.
5. 2.
6. High sec. I though that this summer I would go to do low / 0.0 roams but the prices are kinda making me think twice.

Are you going to fight me or do you expect to bore me to death with your forum pvp?

1. Do you personally like or dislike the increase in mineral and follow-up costs and why?
I approve of the rise, ships have been way too cheap for a long time, making it feel like throwaway ships(up to BS) Granted more expensive to buy T1 ships now, but people should take more care for them now as well.

2. What is/are your profession(s) in Eve?
been through alot of professions, currently transporter/explorer

3. Do you feel you gained or lost from the change?
Bit of both, lost some due to higher ship-prices, gained as well as I used this as my stepstone into the mineralmarket, so far profits have been steady.

4. How long did you play?
This is the 3rd year I'm active.

5. How many accounts do you have?
Just one, dabbled on a second but ended it as I preferred to play just use one.

6. What sec status systems do you mostly live in?

You'll usually find me in lowsec, trips through highsec is mainly pickup as I'm shoot on sight.

Neither.

4. How long did you play?

since August 2008.

5. How many accounts do you have?
