I’ve been thinking.
over the last few days I have been reading a lot of chats and having a lot of discussion over how “safe” eve has become.
in short, we are sitting on piles of isk with little incentive to undock and put it to use. we even have faction titans now.
at the same time, there is little fear of losing stuff, for a replacement is easy to find.
It seems we are in short supply of Consequence.
So here’s a thought:
What would happen if, overnight, something like 25% of eve’s assets were to disappear?
I’m talking minerals, materials, goo, salvage, ships, items, ammo… name it. what if we would just take it off the markets and destroy it?
I have no idea how much people have in storage right now (probably a LOT) but what if we were able to drain eve sufficiently to induce some volatility? A lovely moment to try this would of course be in the time leading up to the moongoo changes, where I forsee stockpiles being strained quite a bit already.
And while we’re at it, since we’re here at MD, immagine the gains to be had if overnight everything would be in short supply…
EDIT the following is a horrible idea, but I’ll leave it in for kek.
/ Such a project is impossible if done by one person of course.
/ but this would be a great open ended IPO of sorts:
/ 1. raise funds to have Chribba or Grendell buy up enough of eve to destabilize the economy.
/ 2. ??? (Chaos)
/ 3. Profit
Tell me, have I lost my marbles or would this be awesome?
