    EDIT: I just realised that I put an age-limit thing on this particular video, because of some of the content (language). I'll take it off and add a note to the description. Thanks for pointing it out Areen.


    Seems fine now; thanks.

    Please, might you upload this somewhere that doesn't want to hump my leg over getting a Google account for age verification?

  • Loan for Plex in EVE Gameplay Center

    Well, I don't have many ships right now. All of my ISK will like in next month's incursions, for which I will buy a battleship to use for. Until then, I have a Myrmidon that I can put up for collateral. I'm putting my reputation on the line too.


    46 million of Myrmidon's neither here nor there against a loan of over a billion, and if the rest of your capital is tied up in an incursion ship which you might lose, you're kind of a terrible risk. How are you going to make the billion back again?

    (If the answer is "sell my friend's ships when they quit", well, wait for them to quit...)

    I just got a friend who is quitting EVE. However, since all of my ships are Omega, I need a PLEX for next month. That means I need 1,250,000,000 ISK. Message me or contact me in-game for any questions. Interest rate is completely negotiable.


    Why not sell some ships or specify which PLEX-worth of ships you're putting up as collateral?

  • Loan request for Rattlesnake dualboxing in EVE Gameplay Center

    Personally, I hold no hard feelings over this. Manbun created content. A sandbox like EVE would be boring as hell if it was not for people creating content, in whatever shape and form. This is not a moral endorsement of scamming, but just a practical view of life in EVE.


    That's the spirit, but let's go further; it's completely moral to scam in EVE, just as it's moral to lie in Illuminati or betray a trust in Diplomacy. We're playing a game, and this is part of the game.

  • CONCORD / Police in EVE Gameplay Center

    A criminal act occurs, you're in your ship doing whatever you usually do and suddenly up comes the CONCORD cyno alert. Maybe it's delayed by a few seconds, depending on the sec status of the system involved. You've only got seconds to respond to the cyno alert or it's gone.


    This is a pretty cute idea, actually. It largely overcomes the "I shoot my criminal alt to collect the payment", because of the lack of control over whoever else horns in on the kill.

    However, it does let one get free jumps by judicious use of prepositioned alts in rookie ships. I guess some sort of lore nonsense would have to establish that CONCORD anticynos you back to where you started once the incident's over, you can't jettison cargo while it's happening, and probably some stuff to block some other clever dodges. Given that CONCORD's magic already, I guess that would be OK.

    Spaceships move very quickly; on collision, might not both vessels simply explode (given the high energy amounts locked within them)? I suppose that might start a new playstyle of suicide-bumping...


    And I'll bet every other null bloc would be utterly delighted by the prospect of a dozen bees in inties being able to kamikaze a super off the field. :-)

  • Loan request for Rattlesnake dualboxing in EVE Gameplay Center

    Well, well done. I'd say I don't know how Jita Pu fell for that, but having fallen for an obvious-in-retrospect Sabriz alt a few months ago, I can't talk. :-)

    1.) They might, but like I said in several posts above, I'd like to solve this without my corp. The emphasis was on the "I don't want to" part, and I told you why.


    That's the part that makes no sense. Who knows your main? Who already has to trust you? Who knows these Rattlers and ratting setup actually exist? Who knows the arrangements for security of the hole are good? Who will benefit themselves to a degree if you get this cash? Your corpmates. They're so obviously the first choice to borrow the money from that "I don't want to" doesn't really cover it.

    You've also mentioned your plan is to dual-box. AKA - both Rattlesnakes will be in space running missions at the same time. How can you guarantee you would only lose one?

    I think these lines of questions mainly boil down to not understanding how wormhole space works.


    I don't. Your explanation of wormhole space details how it's very unlikely to lose one (if your corp is competent) but it doesn't, at all, address the issue that if you _do_ lose one there is no particular reason why you shouldn't lose the other at the same time.

    Of course you do. I'll bet any number of MD regulars will be posting in here about how this seemed like an excellent deal and they offered. Any day now.

    The trouble with any such scheme, like the old bounty system, is the potential to game it by shooting your own criminal alt.

  • IPOs - What percentage do YOU think are scams? in EVE Gameplay Center

    Dunno, but it's worth remembering they're at best Schroedinger's Scam; the organiser can start in good faith but there's nothing stopping them waking up one morning and deciding to steal the lot - or just burning out on the game.

  • PLEX change : Cancel PLEX orders and reimburse broker fees?! Really? in EVE Gameplay Center

    Zarek Kree wrote:
    Sure...and then there will be those who scream about having their orders summarily changed to a different item against their will.


    While of course you are right (someone will scream about any change whatsoever), I think CCP should favour making people whose complaint makes no sense be the ones who do the screaming.

    Provided the minimum quantity is set to 500, the conversion of an order for PLEX into 500x as many microPLEX makes no actual difference whatsoever, so if someone complains, they're being silly.

    Even the forums have scope for PVP if approached in the right way, but I don't think the killboards collect nosecoffeemails yet.

  • New minime PLEX discussion. in EVE Gameplay Center

    Bad Bobby wrote:
    PLEX price might dip temporarily, due to the one-time injection of extra PLEX converted from Aurum, but the increased functionality and usability of PLEX will counteract this.


    Presumably the end of destruction-in-transit will lower the price somewhat by increasing the supply... but for all I know only a tiny fraction of PLEX bought are destroyed by the loot fairy.

    Leaving aside the latest round of "make EVE like every other MMO and surely subscriber numbers will rise because reasons", I'd like to know why Hello Kitty Online doesn't actually exist. I'd play it, so based on extensive market research (myself), it would be a roaring success.
