Liberation of Yestadan complete
From: CONCORD
Sent: 2012.10.13 13:57

[REDACTED]


Yestadan has been freed from the invading Sansha forces. Your efforts in this matter have not gone unnoticed and we are awarding you loyalty points. More details can be found in the Journal.

In addition, we wish to honor the following pilots, whose individual contribution exceeded everyone else:

1 Tim fromaccounting 315915
2 Miyoko Asukai 315915
3 Robaeus Invictus 299831
4 BaT21 255360
5 FiercelessTiger 250292
6 Mischka C 234272
7 Staples Optima 223518
8 Katarina Musana 215180
9 jugshot 203839

CONCORD


Now for some math. It's amazing how people cringe and get defensive when you have math to back up your claims.

Lets assume for the sake of argument that "Tim fromaccounting" was present at all the incursion fleets that happened in this constellation. He would have gotten about 8400 LP per incursion (TVP attempts to go for consistency by running the same sites as much as possible) so we can figure he did about 37 incursions.

Thanks to TVP's efficiency and standardization he probably made about 31m isk per incursion so he made 1.1 BILLION isk from this particular incursion set.

Now it takes an average of 39 people to run an incursion in TVP, so we can multiply that by 39 and discover that 45.5 BILLION isk was injected into the butt cheeks of the EVE economy from THIS ONE SET OF INCURSIONS!

I believe there is no evidence that incursions are inflationary for LP and ISKLol

EDIT: Yes that was sarcasm. Incursions are terrifyingly efficient at destroying the economy.

Yeah... in fact, humans seem to be responsible for most of the "bad" governments rather than the government type.


Maybe we should give in now and just let the cats rule.

How long did it take to run each site?

How much downtime was there waiting for new pilots as people went to bed, got disconnected or otherwise interrupted the fleet?

From the time he started looking for a fleet to the time he finished for that session, what was his average ISK/hr?

How much of the ISK earned in incursions is going to be burned up by purchasing items from LP stores?

How much time do these people spend waiting for a fleet?

Come back to us when you have the answers to these questions and perhaps you will be able to figure out for yourself that incursions are no longer the ISK flood they were back when spamming 2-minute OTAs all day was the highest ISK/hr occupation for spaceship pilots.

Now contrast this income that requires large organised groups to the income from running havens and sanctums in a fighter assisted tengu, in the perfect safety of a nullsec blue shield.

Pffft, I was there. It took at most 20 minutes per site and that most was because the FC botched the targeting order and made something spawn too soon.

Oh yeah I only waited for a fleet of 10 minutes.

Now lets take the stats from CCP Diagoras on payouts from last Febuary & compare them to the presentday payouts per month & what do we get? CCP Soundwave admitting CCP broke Incursions Cry
It'll be interesting to see3 what Dr E says about the popularity & success of Incursions pre & post Escalation next fanfest Shocked

Incursions now inject maybe 1.5 trillion per month in payouts WormHole blue loot is still upwards of 9 trillion ISK per month
Bounties probably close to 38-40 trillion per month.

maybe you should come to nullsec and run havens and sanctums in a fighter assisted tengu in the "perfect safety" of the nullsec "blue shield"

unlike incursions there is actual risk in wormholes and 'bounties' includes everything from shooting frigate rats in newbie missions to killing battleship rats in nullsec

But that would be off topic (yeah, troll thread, but still off topic) as in that risk has nothing to do with ISK inflation.

Posting in stealth incursions advertisement for noobs thread.

P. S. There are ~ 100 people farming incursions at any given moment of time(40 ppl fleet of TVP + smaller fleets in ISN, GIP, TDF, DIN) who getting ~ 50mil ISK per hour. That's ridiculous compared to thousands of people involved into null-sec ratting @ 50-90mil / hour in bounties.

I don't know WH or Incursions, But I thought that stuff was lp and salvage. My understanding is lp and salvage can be exchanged for stuff that can be sold for ISk. Injecting ISK would be bounties from rats and missions, right? Wait what's the point of this thread. I'm out.

Do not assume anything above this line was typed by me. Nerf the Truth, it's inconvenient.

and still far nothing compared to the more ridiculous thousands of people involved in hi-sec mission running.... Big smile

of course the high sec mission runners are making much less than 50M isk/h on average.

With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

You want to see something that is "terrifyingly efficient at destroying" a market just look at FACTION WARFARE & THE IMPLANTS MARKETAttention Especially the attribute 'plant deflation & the reduced ISK sinks per item of this inelastic demand.

You need to recalibrate your clock. Use an actual clock next time, not your innate sense of the passing of time.
