You will learn a lot from going from 25m to 1000m. Don't PLEX, as you'll lose out on learning.

The first option - and the fastest - is theft. It's usually the best way to get your first ten billion ISK - thefts larger than that are very difficult to pull off.

The second option is simple old buy low, sell high.

By theft, do you mean via false pretenses? Or is there a way to actually reach into someone's pocket, break into their storage, or the like?

Not that I'd actually consider doing that. Just curious.......Roll

There's no way to reach into any other player's wallet directly.

Player corporations, on the other hand, have wallets (7 each) and hangars (7 at each location they rent or own) that are managed by the CEO and the Directors via granted permissions, and the interface is somewhat like setting up file access permissions in Windows. Most CEO's don't make mistakes, a few do. Mostly, though, it's about convincing everyone that you're trusty enough to get access to the wallet and the hangars with the juicy stuff.

Some people enjoy the thrill of it, I guess, or the feelings of superiority. Or the infamy for setting a new record of how many things were stolen. Personally, the PLEX system makes it possible to get billions with no effort, so why bother? Why ruin a whole bunch of other people's enjoyment of the game?

In any case, corp theft is one of the reasons why nobody trusts newbies, and why we have API checks and recruitment interviews and all that stuff. It's hard to differentiate between true newbies, and "newbies" who are really veteran alts specifically created for theft.

or espionage.

My choice of pronouns is based on your avatar. Even if I know what is behind the avatar.
