Confirming my full support of begging threads by addressing a single point of discussion within it. Confirming that means by your logic you believe the same.

What were we confirming again?

Sounds like a personal problem.

It should be noted that there are some people who are not capable of paying for EVE because they are not allowed to work, and they have a parent and/or guardian who refuses to shell out a credit card to pay for it. I know I had an awfully hard time convincing my parents to use their credit card so I could pay for EverQuest - EVEN when I was paying them back using my own paper route money.

Yeah, you might dislike teenagers, but everyone was a teenager once and simply hating someone because they are a teenager is just plain bigoted.

You do realise that the fuss over this thread is just that, a fuss.


1. The op in no longer in-game.

or

2. Someone gave him the ISK and he no longer cares.

or

3. It was just a potential scam, it is EVE after all.




Anyway, which ever one it was, it's now just a storm in a tea-cup.

Moreover, a MMO provides some of the cheapest entertainment per dollar and EVE is in a position of offering payment by PLEX. So somebody cannot afford the subscription fee. They might be working, but be paying hellish child support and barely scraping by. Spending a few hours a night relaxing with EVE when they can PLEX it might just be a good thing for them. Perhaps even better than drinking away $$$ in a bar. Or whatever.

There are potentially as many circumstances as there are people playing EVE. Yeah, it might be a scam. It might not be.

WTF. I wasn't trolling. I was trying to be helpful without being some elitist min/max idiot. low-level minining and paying for an account with PLEX is just a laborious joke. Incursions and Level 4 missions are easily accessible to everybody even if they don't want to leave high sec and make grinding that PLEX way way easier.

Just re-read what I said without your stupid prejudices.



Trolling or not it was an earlier post of yours that escalated the conflict in this thread, by turning it into the rights and wrongs of the haves and have- nots.


Would you have given him the ISK? If yes, then why didn't you?


The majority of people would not have, simply because they don't know if he's scamming or not.

Plus I think you'll find that any kind of begging is not allowed on the forum.

Yeah, she called out the "get a job" crowd. Seemed like a pretty moderate response to me. (Why the **** am I defending Spank?)

Petition it so you can re-subscribe, saying you thought you had more ISK than you did. They'll be understanding. I'm sure it happens a lot.

Then get back in your barge, restart training to a hulk, and get mining. Minerals are up!
Also, if you need to raise cash in a hurry, contract all that ore to me for 22mil ISK and I'll take it off your hands. That's like two, possibly three L4 missions, depending on what kind of loot I pull in.


What kind of crappy L4 missions are you running? All the >5k LP missions will net me around 20+ m in bounties, salvage and loot.


*chuckle*

It's like watching people debate which kiddie-coaster is the best in the playland side of a theme park when in over in the main park there are a half-dozen real roller coasters going twice as fast and ten times as high.

20M isk is 10-15 minutes in an anomaly on bounties alone in null sec. And that's not even in a haven or sanctum.

Get out of the shallow end of the pool and treat yourself to the rest of the game :)



lul I took some cheap **** of the market and resold it within half an hour for a 150m profit. Bounty grinding, you sound like children bragging about nothing in school.

Making isk in eve is easy, not time consuming at all and those that can't do it, are just pretty stupid. Spent most of my time this week playing Mass Effect 3. Been online at most 10minutes a day, made a couple bill. Its not moon goo rich, but its not like I had to do much.

How long do you bounty grind to make that? Play smart not boring.

Don't ask about Italics, just tilt your head.

If you can afford internet and a computer powerful enough to play EVE then you should probably be able to handle an extra 15 dollars a month of expenses. I know the global economy is bad but unless you live in a third world country you should be able to find something that can get you an extra 15 dollars a month. If you simply can't do that then I wonder how you even find time to play EVE in the first place!

Honestly bud, your really not playing EVE if you are just mining.

You shoot rocks with lasers, so you can make enough ISK to buy bigger ships to use for the purpose of shooting rocks with lasers!

If you just mine you will reach end game VERY fast in EVE which for a game with so many options and paths to take, isn't really a good thing.

In your case you wouldn't even be getting to bigger ships. You will be stuck in an infinite loop of being able to just barely afford a PLEX and then proceed to spend the rest of the month working your ass off so you can afford another plex. If you actually enjoy doing that then by all means keep doing that but if you spend the entire month working just so you can pay for another month of working then you will find all enjoyment sucked out of the game.

My advice to you OP: Keep your minerals and ore, and take a break from the game. Then wait for PLEX prices to (hopefully) drop and use those 3 or so free days to buy a new one. Then sell your ore and minerals so you have a bit more starting cash this time around. While waiting for PLEX prices to drop you can try out any number of free games. I'm probably going to get hunted down and podded for saying this but you could try WoW since it's now free up until level 20. I've never played WoW so I don't know how much game time that gives you but it should be sufficient enough while you get your act together.

Well, I really only access the forums from two computers and when I do I like to post. My passwords are saved so I am too lazy to log out just for the purpose of seeing if I can read the forums while logged out.

You log into the forums, it might be because I have personal info turned to 'no pilots'.

Edit: But of course you can read them logged out, but then you can't post.



Edit2: With this post It was not me be heartless but trying to point out that if the guy was genuine and I can't say if he was or not then 3 or 4 hours for the renewal would have passed already, so the argument was still going on after the event. Hope that explains it better. And thanks to Fred for reminding me that the guy can still read the forums.

Anyway I need some sleep, and away for 4 days so fly safe or not which ever you prefer.
