So my tiny, tiny Corp has trade and Industry Alts and members, with the aim of ultimately funding small gang pew pew. Over the last couple of months I have noticed that almost all tech 2 mods have dropped in value to the point where only large null corps could hope to make a reasonable return.
The Pvp on pure trading remains a rat race but, increasingly, one which simply isn’t worth the trouble. I mean, why bother with all that stuff if you can’t make enough both to fund the trade alt’s sub and also support ships for pirate action etc?
Trade and industry is interesting in tis own right but, if it doesn’t fund your Corps’ goals in terms of what you hope to do with the ISK, then it becomes a bit pointless…and, if that happens too much, then the market will start to die…whcih would be a shame, as well as hugely damaging to the game ethos as a whole.
I mean I’m still going to play and all, 'cos I love the game, but it would feel soooo much more part of the meta if trade and industry could fund our tiny - but deadly (lol) operations.
Thoughts? (said, waiting for the insults, Scoots etc)
