Enough is enough! There is currently little to no risk involved for the vast majority of isk making in EVE! From Moon mining to planetary interaction and even research there is hardly ANY risk involved. Please remove all passive isk from the game!

Many players use these tools to plex accounts.

There is little incentive to do anything else.

Passive isk is killing the game.

Hell, there's no real reason to log in anymore.

Please put an end to passive income!

You forgot the worst form of passive income.

Skill training.

You can make 5 or 6 billion logging in for an hour total over six months. If you are going to rage, that's where you should be directing it.

No-no-no, you don't understand. The good man says that there are no incentives to do anything else and no reason to log in any more. The poor soul seems to be trapped inside the vicious cycle of tremendous passive income.

I'd rather see all active forms of ISK making removed so people can spend more time gleefully clubbing each other. Primary income streams via looting players/ransoming, and a bit more competition in the 'passive' markets.

While i disagree with pi needing to be changed on the eve side (it need to be linked more to dust/legion damn it) Moon mining should become active.

The ore should be found in comets (see what i did there?) new astroid belts, or just in places that can be mined by players.

Will get players to the feilds and cause more pew pew.

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

So you want to end one of the most beautiful aspects of EVE. I have a feeling they won't comply.

... with a dock up or die game?
There isn't much pew pew. You dock up, grab a cloaked ship, watch the exits and do your PI in the meantime.
If PI is removed, you sort out some mails, chat a bit, check what needs stocking on the local market.

Pew pew + miners is a joke. Ratters have more challenging pew pew.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

i dont think OP understands moon mining requires military supriority, which means that "mad profitz" has to be split up to maintain that military superiority, after all, why would they defend it if it didnt benefit them?

and as for PI, yeah, set up PI in highsec and see how much you make, then set it up in low and see how long its "risk free" once locals start seeing T2 transports regularly in system with the same pilot by the same planet

Um thats bearly above 1 plex per month... that figure in the 2 plex transfer fee? I guess. But still


5-6bill over 6months is basically breaking even dude.

Who uses T2 transports for PI...

Badger.

Also I think I get 250-300m/month from PI in HS, depends how the market is that month. On 2 Chars thats 75% of a plex for doing pretty much nothing.

And it is very much risk free. In all regions of space. Transport ships don't tank any better in HS than they do in NS. If someone wants you dead. You dead.

(I think my WH PI pulls in almost 1B a month if you looking for a comparison).

I am just finishing up Economics 202 macroecon class. With plex like 8-850 and 5/6bill per momth over 6months.

MINUS INFLATION
MINUS OPPORTUNITY COST of gettin the isk at the end, not begining so you can invest/gain on it

That almost comes to a net loss once you make adjustments dude.


Go wiki up some econ scrub

Making what and which planets are you using to get 250-300 million per month per character, doing pretty much nothing. My experience getting to that level of income from PI in nullsec requires more than pretty much nothing?

How many characters are you using to make 1 billion a month on PI in J-Space?

So, why didn't I get the memo? "Blitz the forum with 'no risk no ISK' demands!
Is this going to happen all week, or can we look forward to something slightly resembling literate?
Intelligent may be a reach these days. Shocked

There just isn't anything that can be said!
