That's funny.


Why is this funny?

Because being an industrial/marketeer isn't risky.



LOL, now that's funny. But ok, you opinion, carry on.

Obviously never played Market PVP.

If they want to increase risk/reward why don't they just get rid of the majority of ore in highsec. These empires have been plundering highsec for how long? The entire rational for Empires allowing people onto the frontier is to get resources. That's what has happened in the Real World. Their is no need to change station prices etc... simply move the resources and keep manufacturing cheap in highsec. Think of all those convoys of freighters bringing resources in just like they used to from Drone Space.

Being an industrialist is definitely not risky, and being just a jita trader is only risky if you don't know what the **** you're doing and don't keep up on devblogs. Calling it "one of the riskiest things to do in EVE" is just ludicrous.

I am more interested to know if he is willing to pay for the 100,000+ accounts they would lose overnight? Lol

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

I think your response shows one of the major problems CCP is having right now. Because they are worried about losing however many subscribers they would lose they refuse to make truly dynamic changes to the game. It's actually funny how this is one of the worst made games that people love. I'm still trying to figure out why I love it. I think it's really the only massive space option out there at the moment, I digress. CCP needs to make real changes while maintaining a place for the pvp risk adverse.

And to the poster saying the market is risky and or isn't a form of pvp, that's like saying ganking isn't a a real form of pvp because only one of us had a gun. Just because it's not your form of pvp doesn't make it less so. Hell in many ways mining is a form of pvp, turtle pvp, but pvp none the less.

Point out anywhere that I've said, in any way, shape or form, that market fuckery isn't PVP.

What I've said is that being an industrialist and working the market isn't risky if you know what you're doing. That's a pretty goddamn long way from saying "the market isn't PVP".

Isn't there that Russian physical copy of EVE available? It's got a CD in it (I presume), and that was certainly cut by a die.

EVE's dieing.

If you mean that you inferred that by laughing at that comment I meant to say being an industrialist/marketeer isn't PVP, then yes, you did. If you inferred that I meant that it wasn't "one of the riskiest things to do in EVE", then no, you didn't.
