And now the ultimate isk sink proposal:

My wallet.

My wallet is always empty and everytime I undock and fly dangerous, people come together and form gigantic fleets to rid themselves of the biggest thread to faction warfare and nullsec alltogether - me.

Since my income has been lowered I can no longer produce isk like Incursions do, so if you really are so desperate to rid yourself of your overfilled wallet, mine is empty, please donate.

I accept any donations in Caldari, Gallente and Amarr ships and weapons and ammo, isk and deadspace gear.

You will be listed as donator in my video once I have enough footage.

Eve Minions is recruiting.

This is the law of ship progression!

This will only be a sink if you were to leave the game with all that ISK. Is this your way of telling us goodbye?

hmmmm


1- addition of market effecting event eg..

-a fuel cell blew in cargo bay 8 the ensuing station fire consumed 40% of you're cargo
-an asteroid hits jita station causing it to crash into a moon where a giant space dragon ate it and then threw it up...60% of all commodities and jump clones/medical clones lost

2-ship based cargo risks eg...

-fuel cells explode ...taking any form of damage esp kinetic will risk the cargo
-mwd can explode ect ect..

3-astroid famines

4-a decent crackdown on illegal botting

5-a concord weakening for ganking

Very Simple -

Make it so that Blueprint Originals are learnt, like skills, you right click on a BPO and your character learns it, and will have it with them forever.

If they were organised in a nice UI on the character sheet, thousands of players of the collector/completionist mentality (a particular prevalent demographic from what I see in eve) would run out and start spending billions on BPOs.

If I could learn a blueprint and it became an item I could build on the character, I would go out and learn all the small ammos, then the medium.. then the large.. then I would learn to make all frigates.. cruisers...

Simple ISK sink that encourage BPO purchasing, one of eve's largest existing ISK sinks. It would give more value to characters, give more people value to their characters and give industrialists a bigger feeling of accomplishment than simply having a cargo hold full of small containers filled with BPs that are a pain in the ass to move, organise, research etc.

Obviously not someone who does any capital production.

Or someone that researches BP's

Or someone that copies BP's


Also has holes you could drive a tank through. How do you then research BPO's? How do you copy them? Does a single char need to inject 11x the BPO's to run 11 slots or does only one suffice? What happens to invention, which uses BPC's?

On one hand it would mean a single titan BPO could be used to produce 11 titans at once. On the other hand, services that supply BPC packages so people can build their own ships elsewhere is awesome.

TLDR: No.

Next sov related stuff.

1. Whenever you online SBU in enemy system you have to pay 5mil to concord , but when you online this SBU on your own territory you need to bribe someone in concord office , and this cost you 100mil.
2. Each time your station or ihub exits the reinforce timer owner not only have to pump it above certain level of armor or shield, but also approach structure and pay fee for the new timer .

So if your ihub went into armor reinforce and you repaired it to all 100% , you have to pay for all new timers.

When you move out your smartbombing fleet and clear a heaven every 2 minutes ( including warp time ) this makes more damage to eve .

I have literally no clue what you're trying to say here.

That ship insurance is less damaging to eve than excessive isk flow from ratting.

Dead Battleship = 100mil payout = 3 cleared sanctums.


Make ratting more difficult. As a WH guy a constantly hunt ratters (when there is no good fight in WH that is) but large corps intel, local and little to non scram on rats make it almost impossible to gank someone (fortunately there are many idiots out there who are too stupid to run).

So make all rats I null sec use warp disruptors maybe?

Its enough to make most lucrative rats tougher, maybe small rebalance to make all rats a bit harder to kill.

That would probably end up being a "nerf" to the existing isk sink as no-one would ever really have to re-buy BPOs as they could not lose them while hauling them or if a POS get's destroyed...

WIS should be very good ISK sink (furniture, captain quarters only after buying it with monthly fee etc)

A complete reset of ALL WALLETS IN EVE. Just to see what would happen.

In all seriousness, a regular tax on all wallets would sink isk. People may turn to hoarding commodities to avoid the tax, but that would involve buying them, the seller incurring sales tax and, when wanting to realise the value in isk, selling the commodity incurring again sales tax.
