7mil tick’s are no where near sustainable thou, lets take for example the event that is on now it costs 500mil for a bs - the 100mil for doing 15k damage and -80mil from insurance that’s 320 cost, lets say you win 50% of the time that’s an extra 30mil in container loot every 2 deaths and half’s the cost of your ship, with matches being 15min and que + dock time about 5min lets saw you can do 3 matches an hour that is 3 x (160) - 45mil (1.5 x the container loot).
about 435mil / hour cost to pvp in the arena lets say you are getting those 7mil ticks
that is 62 tick’s, 3 ticks per hour 20 hours of pve at that rate to pvp in bs arena for 1 hour
20:1 farming to enjoyment time ratio.
7mil/h ticks is a problem and not worth anyones time.
Ship’s skyrocketing in cost and reduced incomes are going burn everyone who rat’s out on pve and force everyone to think eve online is not worth it anymore.
