like weather reporters, they don't get fired for being wrong, in fact they shore up their credibility by explaining to ten decimal places what else happened other than what they predicted.
Money is a form of rationing.
What amazes me is how the economy doesn't grind to a halt with everybody having three of everything, the resources spawn most days and no way is the ship/structure loss covering all that.



The decimal places just show the economists have a sense of humor. P

EVE is probably experiencing slight mudflation right now. Everything is overproduced to a significant amount and market prices slowly fall. Meanwhile the rare unique items that you can no longer attain except through players constantly rise in value.

for an established character it is pretty easy to make 100m-200m/hr. All that income -> plex prices go up, also unique ship/item prices

massive null empires collecting more moon goo than we can blow up -> long run t2 price deflation
tons of mining -> mineral deflation
tons of ratting -> meta mod deflation, salvage deflation
tons of escalations -> dead space mod deflation
tons of pi -> commodity deflation


I almost feel like it makes more sense to say we have material/item inflation,

why not, lets just whip the market and everyone clean of items and start from scratch while we're at it

That would lose most of the playerbase all at once. Mostly the ones which really didn't care about accumulating wealth at all would stick around, and there aren't too many of those.

In a way, seeing the supply of ISK go flat is somewhat good. It means ISK is kept under control for now. Of course, that will likely change since capsuleers are always clever enough to figure out how to turn that around.

TL;DR

EVE needs more things to go pop...
Not enough popping going on here...
EVE is too safe....
EVE is dying(TM)...

You mean invent ISK that's not in the game to buy crap from players who build it with stuff from in the game?
Talk about a major new ISK faucet...

It's all part of the Carebear elite's plan.

More ISK sinks = less ISK in people's wallets = more people whining when they get blown up = more calls for gank nerfs.

As with all Carebear plans, the people it hurts the most are themselves, but they can't see the forest for the trees.

Drain the swamp of the Carebear elite's and make EVE great again.

Shaetads for CSM!



I saw it as easier isk earning with independent industry groups that don't use market materials to produce, People still need ships. EVE losing ganking would probably be the first step to death.


I also don't know words I've never had to use. At least I've seen superlative before.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

Shae, you have succeeded!

I am not an "elite" of anything, but I do not care about PvP at all. So I guess I fit your definition of carebear.

My annual subscription will expire soon (on my main) and I will not be renewing.
Because of you and likes of you!

Never cared about isk, just wanted some fun with spaceships.

You are one step closer to making Eve great again. Keep up the good work!

What does believing in pvp have to do with being a Carebear?

Plenty of PVEers are not Carebears and plenty of PVPers are. PVE v PVP isn't what defines a Carebear.

However take responsibility for your decision to not continue your subscription. That's great for you and everyone's right to make that choice. Nothing to be ashamed of and no ones else should really claim success for that. I don't even know who you are, so I feel a bit unworthy of the praise. However, not wanting to disappoint, thanks anyway.

You explicitly and willingly consent to pvp engagements when you click 'undock'.

Why do people not understand this one, small, simple thing.

They do understand it, they don't like it and think if they complain enough it will change. The last 14 years of evidence that it won't means zero to folks like that.

I rather see a forest cut down then have to deal with ONE wolf......

Unwilling and unaccepted PVP is not part of a modern mmog.....it was 14 years ago but we have 2017......

Time for a change.....

You accept PvP when you click undock. If you have an issue with that, Singularity is open for you.




I see the indoctrination programme is still in full swing....
