Nitrogen isotopes 511 on jita buy orders
Helium 610

Prices this low after 1 week. Set for 250 per isotope in another week?

ROFL, gankers got the last laugh, any gank on a miner at this price would set them back weeks of income. Miners will soon see that the patch was more of a curse than an improvement.

Unless they are making income while afk.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

Wrong.

Miners have :annoyed: face on at dropping mineral prices.

Gankers who now have to put out :effort: to kill barges also have :annoyed: face on.


Now all those people who like blowing stuff up and getting blown up, who didn't lift a finger in the barge argument, and are seeing ship prices drop rapidly?


They are laughing.

A little of that and maybe a little of market manipulation? -then if it's not really interesting they can always switch to another activity to win more isk, thus leaving place for those who will then win a little more.

How much do you think all those banned bots were dumping the market? -reading you I could think it was close to nothing. Blink

and how did you win exactly?
you didn't need topes to gank miners to begin with.

that's like saying the cows won because monkeys now eat lettuce.
and aliens don't wear hats because purple.

Cheaper ships?
If players can buy more ships and equip them to loose them it's good for the game health. Happy players in a pvp game actually like to pvp and spend the less possible time grinding rabbits.

Less time grinding rabbits = more time killing ships = good for the game. Market? -to hell with click fest, nerf them to the ground.

seems like you mean the last cry, I'm still making craploads more than any ganker while afk or watching movies. Posting in a stealth crybaby thread. Seal-clubbing days are over, deal with it, scrubs. Real pvpers love crimewatch.

Stealth crying? Over what? I've ganked quite a few miners since the patch.

0/10, for making me smile irl, as a miner.

If anything, these price fluctuations are making me filthy rich.
Price changing or not, i'm not going to mine any more or less than i normally do.

Here is why:

When price is high and going down you sell your entire stock (sold it all at ~900isk/isotope)
While the price is low, i just stock it up, until price goes up, then i start buying while it's still low.
Repeat .

The higher the difference between low and high, the more i'm smiling, so i'm rooting for it to go down.

obviously you wouldn't be making this thread if you weren't upset about miners making craploads more isk than you with much less effort or afk. This is just a feeble attempt of another awful player, claiming victory while being simultaneously curbstomped by CCP. The last bastions of the cowardly scrub high-sec pirates in EVE is finally being dealt with. You tears of jealousy and butthurt are very delicious. Guess its time to go back to camping low level quest hubs in WoW. Lol

Cheaper ships mean gankers can buy bigger and badder gankmobiles.

I fail to see how this patch affected ganking in any way.

Sure Procurers and Skiffs have truly awesome amounts of EHP for thei class, but from what I've seen 3 Catalysts can still pop a Macki.
If my knowledge of prices is correct, thats still a cost effective gank.


EDIT: Speaking of cost effective ganks. Was looking at the kills on EvE-Kill. Someone was carrying 7b of implants in a RIFTER.

People gank for profit? Really?


I thought it was because its amusing to just randomly pop a miner.


EDIT: I mean gank miners. Ganking something like say a freighter or a hauler will most likely be profitable.
