Establish a relationship with a group of assassins/hackers/agents/whatever I need to be able to track down anyone in the world.

I'd apply to goonswarm and pay their "introduction fee" and get scammed of course.

1. Spend a fair amount of money to find out where that person lives and scare the sh*t out of him, like, really scare the living sh*t out of him and tape everything.

2. Post it on the interwebs.

3. Laugh my ass off.

I haven't gotten scammed but honestly, I've read a lot of **** on these forums and sometimes they go too far :)

as I have no wish to be in charge of a company as I would probably screw that up. I would go to the CCP tech department and ask if there was anything that would help that is being limited by budget. then anything I could cover would be covered to make eve a better place.

other than that, I would build my dream house.
small place
entertainment room with en-suit server room
centralized computing with touchscreen terminals around the house
complete wireless coverage for a wireless headset
faraday cage encasing the entire house with a cell repeater to relay into the house
fiber internet line coming into the house
reinforced concrete construction
heavy polycarbonate windows with metal shutters
steel doors
biometric authenticated entry
off-site stored video security
current kitchen tech

and after that, I would pay off any debts that my family or friends owed and get anything that they've been looking at.
new computer (likely built into the new house in the long run)
and save whatever is left and live quite nicely off the interest off that.

I would buy the best damn computer I could get my ritch hands on!

And a car, and a house but those might not be related to CCP. Wait I know, I could buy a house right next to CCP HQ.

actual gold bars or ingots if you prefer will always be a good item to trade with.


Gold will actually be completely useless as a currency if our modern currencies fail. People always say there is value to gold but that's only if there is a society well formed enough to still use a currency. If the dollar went under our society would collapse and any kind of useless money item would be worthless. Gold only works in that thin line between a collapsed currency and a functioning society.

Almost never happens. ;D



Yes. Here is a secret, folks: The most valuable assets(now and in an apocalypse) are food, weapons, and real estate.

A. Buy a big, nice house somewhere far away. And surely a flat in the centre of stockholm, a lovely town.
B. Build an awesome jazz club with weekly live concerts.
C. Blow a few mil on cars / jachts (not that hard really) and a private jet and a helicopter for the lulz.
D. Buy a tank to drive around my 100 hectar garden and mount a huge paintball gun on it.... Invite my friends for a round of paintball...
E. Invest 90% the remaining money in various places.
F. 50% of what is left goes to bank accounts in case I just lose everything I just invested...

I would buy Blizzard and CCP and force Blizzard to transfer every WOW character to Eve.

I'm thinking that would make for a really nice Target Rich Environment.

step 5 - arm them with these http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5218/5387090570_43b021c9ce.jpg

step 6 - sell tickets for normal people to watch the beatings

step 7 - become rich as i make billions

step 8 - Buy EvE

Step 9 - Buy blizzard

Step 10 - Use all the wow funding as EvE funding

Step 11 - EvE takes over the world i become the richest guy in the world

Step 12 - use the worlds wealth to make warp drive and gates and jump drives and cloning and Pods

Step 13 - Turn the worlds population lose on space and know my life's goal is fufiled

All automated intel should be removed from the game including Instant local/jumps/kills/cynos for all systems/regions.Eve should report nothing like this to the client/3rd party software.Intel should not be force fed to players. Player skill and iniative should be the sources of intel.

id buy 10's of thousands of plexes sell them and then crush the market to show ccp how faulty it is to allow players to BUY ingame money.

Also probably sucide titans for lawls
