So...


Let us say 1t veldspar (this being Chribba Blink)


1t ISK is worth about 1,176 ish PLEX
1,176 PLEX is worth about 23,520 DOLLARS Shocked


That is a lot of dollars worth of veldspar Twisted

But not even close to the $$$ I could have earned the last 11 years if I didn't play - so not even a tempting number to ruin 11+ years worth of investment for.

Wat?

Can't be.
Since when you can exchange PLEX bought for ISK ingame to dollars in real life legally?

RMT is bad, m'kay?

Highest i hve seen is double digit tril. It was last year christmas eve and he was giving away isk in the noob channel. He asked: does anyone want some isk? I sayd: yeah sure. He asked how much. I was sure he was talking bs anyway. So i said a bil. And he send it. Loool. So i convo him, chatted a bit to try to get some more isk from him and the ss his wallet. I almost fell of my chair..
I forgot his name. Really stupid, i should have added him to my contacts. But i do remember, he said that he used to sponsor some old triple a corps and fc's back in the days. Maybe someone could track him down that way.

No you're not, you're making **** up because you're not a mindreader. Go find some quantitative data, with some qualitative surveying to support the data, and support your assertion with some evidence. Especially if you're going to be so specific as to provide a percentage.


There's an 80% chance that you agree with me but have chosen to be dishonest about it because you so desire the respect and admiration of the masses. I have indisputable evidence of this in the form of hard documentation but choose not to disclose my information.

Definately not. I know someone in the game right now with over 1.5 trillion and they know people with more.

There's a 100% chance that you don't know anything about me and are forming conclusions based on preconceived ideas generated by personal expectations. TL;DR, you're full of ****.

rich people needs to put 80% of their isk into the economy by spending 80% or more of it that way the economy can thrive more!

same with real life, the more you spend the more an economy grows
hoarding money will just hurt the game in the long run

Just wait until Chribba strikes. I have a feeling it will be the biggest heist in Eve history.


And to the poster above me: Rich people do not "hoard" money. Having diversified assets is much safer than pulling a Scrooge McDuck. Especially with how weak the US dollar/economy is, and the impending economic troubles facing Russia. Better start brushing up on my Mandarin.

Your post is the equivalent of an American trying to smugly correct someone's spelling when they type colour. Morons are an international constant Ugh

And they give us **** for using the imperial system. At least it's not ambiguous like their dumb contention that 1 billion = 1 million * 1 million, 1 trillion = 1 billion * 1 million, etc.

Thankfully the long scale is falling quickly out of favor.

Except in Eve Online we just print more isk by shooting red crosses.

Although this mystery man may have convinced you I'm a bit sceptical because :

"CCP released a tweet of the two largest wallets. One was 5 trillion, one was 1 trillion. Both were alliances. While they didn't say who which were, a quick glance at the sov map clarifies that bit of research for you fairly easily... "

It has been the pattern for EVE since day one. Some times it's RMT driven, others it's just greed but yea, you want to be a trillionaire in EVE online? Build a successful alliance, then sabotage it by starting a war you can't possibly win. You inherit all the booty from making it successful.



Just like in reall life it's nott he thieves that steal your money ,





it's the ones playing the markets that are .

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
