500mil for your opinion!

Friends have been taunting me for years to get back into the game and my willpower has now given out, so here I am. Anyhow, I have to start over because I sold my character to a friend before I left. It is now his main (with which he runs a small corp) so I feel as though asking for her back would be rather rude and in any case, not in the cards for me.

So my situation is thus: I have around ~50 billion in liquid isk, another ~10 bil (rough estimate) in various assets which I kept on a throw-away alt and I am looking to re-establish myself.

I know there's no right or wrong answer, but I'm quite curious to know what you would do?

500 million isk to the answer that I find the most insightful or amusing. ;)

Thats more than enough isk to buy yourself a decent character from someone alse tbh. Thats atleast what id have done, think about what kinda skill setup you want this time around and have a look on the forums for a neat char that suits your need. And welcome back!!

Buy a freighter. Fill it with hookers, drugs holoreels, a couple addicts and homeless, lots of booze, and a few random trinkets and oddities. Name it the Party Cruise Ship, and autopilot it in a course to do one lap through lowsec.

Double it by saying the same story in local and adding if you send me x-amount I will double it. Twisted

Buy a bunch of good skilled characters in various pvp/industry roles. infiltrate 5 alliances in opposite coalitions etc. Work your way up in power in each and obtain ultimate knowledge of everything and then trade knowledge for more isk

Buy a bunch of PLEX in Jita, buy an equal number of frigs or a shuttles, fly out with 1 PLEX each time and TAUNT people into shooting you up.

Hours of fun, and with the price of PLEX rising up you shouldn't have too much trouble getting pilots to take that 50/50 chance the PLEX will drop.

FRAPS it for the rest of us to enjoy watching later, and it you have VENT or TS then invite the lucky contestants into your channel to chat, whine, curse, and/or laugh it up while they try to shoot you.

I've just started a supercap building business that is capable of pumping out 4 supcaps a week. Invest with us & see huge profits. Invest enough & we can increase production which means more profit.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

I would use the money to purchase a toon you like from the Character Bazaar, and join your friend's corp.

I would literally murder anyone, anytime anywhere to have one of my RL friends playing this game.

Options are buy a character from the bazaar, or buy 8 years worth of game time in PLEX and stay on the path of starting fresh.
You could get 4 years worth of plex and use the rest to fund yourself in t1 ships for FW for the foreseeable future.

You could invest into an industry character and buy some BPOs and build stuff.
You might have enough to build an outpost in some backwater 0.0 system =). That is pretty much like throwing it away though.

Firstly, welcome back. Secondly, personally, I would invest... Not in anything to do with anyone else though, I would invest in yourself.

Although you haven't stated what it is in EVE you're interested in, I will give you an idea of what I would do/plan to do eventually. Start a corp. Not just a small one that has a few members or only specialising in one aspect. I mean the full shibang, with different sectors of the corp. Combat Division, Industrial Division, Logistics (remote repair, shield/armour transfer) Division.

A corp that offers things like ore buyback, ship replacement, incursions, pvp roams. I mean really think about this and do it properly. Invest into recruiting manufacturing directors for the Indy side and FC's for the combat side. Hell, even invest in a load of BPO's and the like.
Also have a hisec, lowsec and nullsec presence. A corp like that, that actually does well, will get you your money back, because afterall, its an investment, you take the money back from an investment.

Obviously dont put all your isk into in. Save a load for yourself so you can just have a laugh losing ships or whatever. Or accumulate it.

Just an idea...

It's human nature to want to explore. To find your line and go beyond it. The only limit, is the one you set yourself.

I would post on the EvE forum and ask other capsuleers, whose opinions don't really mean jack, don't care about you or your situation and ask them what I should do...then sit back and read all the BS and do what I want anyways.


Welcome back to EvE.

I, too, came back to the other game like it. Gotta love it.

Play this new character until you're settled back in and use the time to decide what to do next.

Send me the money and I'll double it and then you buy several chars with your 120b.

Id spend it all on livestock, wait for the prices on livestock to inevitably shoot up in a couple of years, sell with profit and retire rich!

BoBwins Law: As a discussion/war between two large nullsec entities grows longer, the probability of one comparing the other to BoB aproaches near certainty.

I'd pretend to be scamming but in actuality be giving it away in local.

The people who respond - who normally would be called stupid to do so - would get a nice reward.

Maturity, one discovers, has everything to do with the acceptance of not knowing.

Re-establish yourself in what way?

One option could be to join Rixx Javix's "Stay Frosty" corp, and just have fun with casual small fleet PvP for the rest of your natural life Big smile

Form a PvP corp, recruit like mad, then hire mercenaries to throw themselves at you to ensure a plentiful supply of good fights :)
