It would be awesome to see the wealth distribution of EVE verse real life.

Grrr ... 1%

Prob solved. Twisted

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.

I could probably manage to break 200mil today if I stopped posting on the forums and actually played.

Most of my ISK comes from very lucky loot drops in combat anomalies.

I think it would, it's strange but IRL I'm very much a socialist who would rather share with others and not horde wealth or material possessions as I often feel that when one does they become more of a liability than they're worth, but in EVE I tend to be very miserly, mistrustful, and consider things in terms of their profit/counter profit potential. In EVE when others ask for help my gut reaction isn't to freely offer help as I would want to be helped, but to wonder if it's a trap or wonder how much I should charge.

Not quite sure what to make of it, in EVE I find myself expressing many characteristics that I despise IRL, and as illuminating as that is, I also find it slightly disturbing.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Only about 2.5b liquid and maybe around 7b assets. Not much at all.

Given how easy it is to make a modest amount in EVE, and how low repeat outgoing are (at least for subscribers), I would expect EVE has a much, much more equal distribution of wealth than RL.

Once you have 1 million in EVE it is relatively quick to fit out a frigate and make 10 million, then turn that into 100m with trading. And getting your first 1m is just a matter of doing half of the tutorials. IRL though, someone with $10 cannot quickly use it to make $100, much less $1000.

So you make 1 quarter of the value of 1 PLEX each week? Damn, you're really poor.

Either way if we use the logic of Gevlon Goblin, you're his moral superior.

To answer the OP, I'm not a super rich guy by any standards, I'm actually really ashamed of my total net worth. I only have 17 titans in build right now when I wish it could be 30. I've only scammed a total value of 1.3t in my EVE lifetime when I wish it could be 10t. I only make 254b a month off reactions when I wish it could be 800b. I only make 7b a month from 1 character PI when I wish it could be 15b. I'm only in the 2% of the wealthy elite when I wish it could be the 1%.

Why is life so cruel?

Yep. The logistics of it is pretty painful though.
