Could you explain how is it “fun”? I mean running around and blowing up random ships looks to me as exciting as watching the grass grow, or grinding random mobs in WoW. – Gevlon
This from someone flying a Badger four jumps one-way to make a tiny, tiny profit. Over, and over, and over again. Who also censors his comment section by deleting mentions of Red Frog Freight that would move all of his badgers for him in one go and INCREASE his profits + allow him to focus on bigger goals.
So my guess of them being 12 years old is true in a sense that they are irrational, immature people who do something stupid that most of us outgrow? – Gevlon
Are we talking about flying Badgers or ganking in high-sec?
As I said before, I’m enjoying Gevlon posting about EVE not just because his posts/comments are going to sound very dumb should he stick with the game for a year, but because his “I’m smarter than you” attitude, one that did work so well in the kiddy pool (WoW), is destined to fail in EVE.
What Gevlon either fails to realize or is simply ignoring is that in the 8+ years EVE has been out, far smarter people than him have done what he is doing, have perfected it, and have set things up in such a way that they profit immensely from his actions. It’s one reason why EVE players stick around for so long, because the amount of impact they can have is far and away greater than in any other MMO, and players like Gevlon provide such wonderful ‘content’.
What Gevlon is doing, most likely unbeknownst to him, is painfully demonstrating one of the basic lessons in EVE: if you find a ‘too good to be true’ way of making ISK, know that dozens before you have found it, tested it, and found it wanting, leaving it for others (you) to find and get excited about. And that most likely, while you perform that task, those above you are benefiting from your actions on a far greater scale.
But this all assumes you take EVE as serious as Gevlon seems to take it. For most, they play just to have a bit of fun, and their fun is not directly tied to making the absolute highest amount of ISK in the absolute shortest amount of time, actual ‘fun’ gameplay be damned.
And if max ISK is your goal, ‘head in the sand’ is not the way to go about it.
It does make for entertaining reading however.
