25 cruizerhulls and 25 frigathulls, worth 50*130b (yah they sell for that) = 6,5 tril

In Euro's @ 1b=15Eu (easy calculating) = 6500*15eu= 97.500 Euro


Whats people's opinion on this?


My opinion is that ships are only worth what people are willing to pay for them. If somebody is willing to pay 150 bil ISK for a ship, with ISK they either spent hours and hours of time gathering, or spent real money purchasing via PLEX, that's their business. If nobody who plays EVE wants to purchase those ships, making their value zero, that's fine IMO too.

Those are the new "Tax Man" interceptors you're going to see at the gates soon. As soon as you jump in, a 500km, x100 scram strength bubble pops up.

Better have your paperwork in order. Big smile

They say most of your brain shuts down on the EvE forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.

Well... put aside all that stuff about how those price is or is not actually owned by winner, how its cost is only reflection of market and any other game related stuff as it is ingame price, not actual money... 97500 euro pricepool for major tournament held once a year? To me (who sometimes watch for example Starcraft or LoL leagues) it seems completely OK.

AT teams work very hard for up to a year to earn those prizes. Its a deserved award.

For UP TO a year? Its more than that for most of the good teams particularly the ones you see year after year

Let's not ignore the fact that the AT has been a rigged scam from the second one onwards.

I wrote some true EVE stories! And no, they're not of the generic "my 0.0 alliance had lots of 0.0 fleets and took a lot of 0.0 space" sort. Check them out here:

Well I personally lurves it when the Tourney eventually comes round, good telly is good tellly yeah.
Just for the hours I have enjoyed viewing, whilst minimal to those that have actually prepared to provide the spectacle, it is imho time well spent.

Would really like to see how many teams would actually show up, and in what ships, if NO PRIZES were offered.

All macho bullshit and epeen posturing aside, it would be alot fewer.
