Sins of a Solar Spymaster #43 - Rethinking Profit in EVE

Posted Tue, Apr 27, 2010 by The Mittani

EVE Online has one of the most detailed economy operations of any MMOG and making isk, the game's currency, can be a tricky thing at times. Some players choose to measure their earnings using the isk/hr scale, but The Mittani believes this a sorely ineffective method and has a few tips for EVE players on how to earn their isk with minimal effort in this week's Sins of a Solar Spymaster #43 - Rethinking Profit in EVE.

EVE is a game based upon an idealized capitalistic economy, a place where every market participant is immortal and cannot starve, where goods always work as advertised and there is no regulation whatsoever - a post-scarcity dystopia. For the vast majority of EVE players, confining themselves to the illusory safety of Empire space, the game is like a gigantic market simulation, and the goal is not to destroy your enemies, but merely to get rich. There's nothing wrong with that goal, per se, but every time I visit Empire space I'm struck by the sheer foolishness of the methods used by 80% of the playerbase to make money.
