My question would be more like:

Shouldn't Amarr VIII be orbiting the Emperor Family Academy by now, considering how much Feldspar Chribba has placed there? Lol

I mean, think of the gravity well this mass generates...

Depends, are we talking about richest in pure ISK or in ISK + Assets?

Not really, no.

That's the person most willing to leave 200b isk of their wealth in raw isk form, and have it all in one wallet, and back it with API.


The population it's measuring is even more restrictive.
It's really not a good measure.

The premise of the thread is the liquidation of assets.

Still going with Chribba. When that guy decides to cash out... oh boy.

That, or all the veldspar he has stored up is him trying to figure out the theoretical upper bounds of the cargo limit in a station. He'll reach it one day, and crash the server to hold CCP hostage. One way or another, he is playing the long game...

Did I mention I love Chribba conspiracy theories?

Probably because it puts a target on their back for nasty people.

At the last EVE fanfest they had some statistics on this on a screen of the players attending Fanfest concerning this, and seeing those numbers in EVE online i was part of the richest 1% attending the fanfest. And i do not consider myself rich. Maybe just wealthy.
I think the richest players in EVE are well within the trillion catagory, maybe even multi-trillionaire. I am just a lowly multi-billionaire.

If all assets were liquidated and all isk into 1 wallet, who would be on the very top? also who would be on the top 10

I have no idea so i thought i would ask you guys


I have a HUGE amount of fun with the time I spend in this game.
I'm not sure you can put a value to that.
It's the only reason I play this wonderfully insane game.

Gevlon would claim he is the richest, then he's do some creative math where he divides a bunch of stuff and multiplies it again until he's got a number for "everyone else" and a number for him which is greater.
And still it couldn't stop TEST going broke.

given a game that doesnt even veil the fact that it is possible to make yourself rich beyond imagining if you possess enough wealth in RL i think this question is moot.

Yawn,  I'm right as usual. The predictability kinda gets boring really.

im guessing you are a baby boomer? one of the many who's legacy will be that of the most selfish, self-entitled, destructive, and ignorant generations humanity has seen in centuries.

the generation that came before you, the generation that made sacrifices so that you could live in air conditioned comfort all your useless life, had the right to make claims like the ones youve made.

get off your high horse, baby boomer. your generation made the world around you the cesspool that it is. its your culture, not ours. get off the TV and interact with some young people and maybe you would see that. continue to sit around on your butt and watch the tube (your generations favorite opiate) and you will remain delusional.

"Parents who wonder where the younger generation is going should remember where it came from."

in all seriousness baby boomer, get off the TV, its rotting your mind.

Without a doubt it is Chribba, but you can't really count him since he earned enough Isk long ago and bought out CCP. I recall hearing something about CCP couldn't add enough zeros to the game to allow Chribba's wallet to update so they started giving him CCP shares. Wasn't too long after that and CCP realized they had no more shares to give Chribba. He now allows CCP to continue running the RL portion of EVE and Chribba runs the in game portion.

T2 BPO owners, members of the old guard with hundreds of T2 BPOs. I'd expect the top mark is 5-10T in assets.
