Gevlon, once again, has disappointed. A few months back he set the moderate goal of just buying a Titan, rather than reaching market-dominating levels of ISK to truly impact New Eden the way major market barons do. Today, even the Titan goal is being abandoned, replaced by a lowly Carrier.
Now Gevlon states the reason for this is that he wants to be a social butterfly and share with everyone his ‘secrets’ to making ISK in EVE. He also states that because he was so social in his chat channel, he missed out on lots and lots of ISK. Pretty sure the ‘M&S’ term would be inserted here if this was on his blog, right?
Oddly enough, this declaration comes right around the ISK amount EVE vets suggested he would plateau off. Coincidence, I’m sure.
Of course now everyone can get as ‘rich’ as Gevlon. I’m sure the key to his success is ingenious market ideas, and not an inhuman tolerance for mind-numbing activities and a wealth of time to carry them out. After all, EVE might be 9 years old, but it’s only thanks to Gevlon that the idea of hauling skill books has finally been discovered. I don’t doubt that future posts will also include earth-shattering stuff. I hear you can make good ISK buying stuff at starter systems?
(On a less sarcastic note: I’m disappointed because it would have made for interesting reading to see if Gevlon could achieve success at the upper levels of EVE’s economy PvP game. Bowing out at this level robs me of entertainment, especially because nothing that Gevlon has wrote about as been anything truly clever in terms of making ISK. It’s all been the standard station trading/hauling stuff, which is less about strategy and more about grinding/time, and still vastly under-performs pilot trading.)
