Daily Tip:Don't forget about market fees when buying and selling in EVE. If you buy something on the market and then sell it for the exact same price, you're still losing, once you calculate in fees.

Sins of a Solar Spymaster #64 – EVE is Surreal - Page 3

Posted Tue, Jul 26, 2011 by The Mittani

Now I'm about to fly out to Nevada to speak at EVE Vegas, where more than 200 people are heading for a weekend of drinking, gambling, showgirls and spaceships. I’m supposed to give some kind of a lecture as a speaker, and I have no idea what that will be. Somewhere along the line I managed to lose my sense of perspective on public speaking, having become frighteningly blase about giving off-the-cuff speeches about EVE to large groups of nerds, which is I suppose one very tangible real-world benefit to come from my gaming habit.

I’m not sure if what I’ve penned is a cautionary tale, a lament, or just a feeble attempt to get my head around what’s happened. The CCP Marketing department would probably say it’s an advertisement for the engagement their game engenders. Yet until 2009 I had a rough guide for where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do in EVE - espionage - and now I find that I’ve flown far from my home in Wisconsin four months out of the last five to either speak or engage in political activity for a MMO (“political activity for a MMO” is, itself, complete madness, yet we take it for granted in EVE). From one perspective this could seem awesome or horrifying. Yet most of the time I just find myself wondering how the hell I ended up here - and how long it will be before I, too, build a hut for elves in my back yard.
