How does the cost of war for the individual players in EVE get handled? Especially the big wars (like the one just concluded).
I’ve seen the youtube videos saying how in the past there were casinos in EVE that financed wars, then the big corps issued war bonds. But how does that money flow down to the individual players in the conflict? (if at all)
The massive loss of ships in these conflicts is staggering. Is that cost borne solely by the individual players fighting? Or do the corps or alliances pay for it?
For example, if I were a part of the recent war, in a fleet, would I be expected to bring my own Tengu (for example) to a confrontation? And if so, if it gets destroyed is it my cost to bear, my responsibility have the finances to replace it, and in fact my task to take time out from the war to acquire a new ship?
Or do the combat pilots get reimbursed for their ships? Even ship replacement by the corp or alliance they are fighting for?
