As an EVE trillionaire I promise that the war against Star Fraction will never go unpaid.

The edge is REALLY hard to see at times but it DOES exist and in this case we were looking at a situation where a new feature created for all of our customers was being virtually curbstomped by five of them

Oh thats precious, a whole 8 billion? Aren't you sweet. *rolls around in 300trillion isk money bin*



Well hey, I'm just an average eve gamer rather than some kind of superfreak uber numbers guy. 8.7b is quite a lot for me, its about the most I ever made with PVE to be honest.

Will keep me in fleet stabbers for a while Cool

what you mean by playing the game for 4 hours.

It really wasn't that onerous and I'm obviously not as greedy as you guys Blink

It's unseemly, man, as one of GSF's hardest working members, to have claimed to have earned this. I know that for the jobs you do, you pull in literal pennies comparatively.

Perhaps you missed the bit where they made sum of ISK greater than the value of every titan in the game put together.

Dearest Market-Interested Space Tycoons,


At downtime today we made an adjustment to the average price of some items in order to curb a situation whereby the average price of an item could be manipulated in order to create a disparity between the value of an item in Isk and its value in Loyalty Point payouts. There will be additional changes in how this system works in the future. We will be monitoring for attempted manipulation of the LP market and will reverse any proceeds deemed to have been obtained through manipulative means. We are watching you. Don’t be That Guy.

So close...

The takeaway from this, of course, is that any minmatar LP-bought item could be utterly crashed at any time by any of the people involved.

You're welcome!

I'm glad to hear that this wasn't some magic exploit, no isk was created from thin air, this money came from other people.

Really this is taking lots of isk being injected into the economy by ratters and mission runners and storing it up safely in the wallets of individuals who clearly understand the Eve economy and have a vested interest in keeping it healthy.
