In a move that surprises absolutely no one, I’ve started expanding my ISK empire in EVE Online. I’ve been watching market videos by Oz_Eve and even though I’ve never been a long term EVE player, I understand the basics of what he’s saying because of the economy I deal with in World of Warcraft. The items change, but the basics stay the same. I’m using A4E for most of my market needs, combined with a spreadsheet that comes from Oz_Eve’s discord. I also now have two dedicated market characters, each dealing with two separate market hubs. I plan on only keeping two Omega accounts (we’ll see how long that lasts) and letting one lapse back to Alpha on May 30th. That gives me 6 characters to play with. A lot of my income still comes from not-so passive activities, like exploration and a bit of ratting. I’m attempting to move one of my PI alts into a Wormlife Freeport, but that’s taking a bit of time.

In the meantime I also decided to take advantage of the MCT sale that’s going on right now, 40% off and I can train multiple characters at once. I need to get some cloaks on the PI alts, especially the one I want to move into the Wormlife Freeport. Like every single game I’ve ever played, there’s a bit of a market standstill in EVE right now as we wait for June 11th and the new ships that will be releasing. There’s a lot of controversy over these hauling ships so far – having risk in EVE is something that is absolutely required, but I feel like one of the ships presented is going to determine the future of hauling, and it’s going to make the other ships redundant – which is not a good thing. There shouldn’t be a ‘one ship to rule them all’ when it comes to EVE. A lot can change between now and release, so I’m not going to be all doom and gloom, we’ll just have to see how it pans out.

I’ve never tried to do any station trading before in EVE, so a lot of the concepts are new to me – like placing your orders in a player station 1 jump away from the major hub to help cut down taxes. I had no idea that was a thing. It’s going to take me quite a bit to learn all of the ins and outs but I’m excited about it. Just another method of game play to add to the things I’m already doing.

As always, fly your way! o7
