I saw you could pay for your month with in-game money instead of irl cash. I can't pay by real money though, so does it need much dedication to pay using the in-game way?
I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say that unless you're the leader of a corp, you're not gonna be able to rake in the cash to do it.
Aww damn... I saw that it was rather tough too...
The first month of the game? No way you're gonna be able to pay it with in game cash.
We've got an EVE Online thread, FYI
actually, being in the booster business can really set your payroll!

[QUOTE=kayOkay;21504358]I saw you could pay for your month with in-game money instead of irl cash. I can't pay by real money though, so does it need much dedication to pay using the in-game way?[/QUOTE] If you played quite a bit, I'm sure that if you have the 21 day Trial, you could probably make the 300 Mil required for 30 days in-game time, if you mined your ass off. I'd recommend Getting the trial, then buying the game for 10 or 15 bucks that comes with 30 days free... You'll have 51 days to play, un-restricted for the price of the game itself Once you get set up and mine rocks or even do missions and salvage wrecks and sell that, you'll make some decent money, Hell in 3 weeks I went from 30 Mil to 230 Mil just buying stuff on the market and then reselling it for 200% profit, Combine that with Mining, making just a humble 300k per Mine Run, and you'll easily make 300 Mil for 30 days rather consistently, and the further you advance your skills and ships, you'll even pull in more And remember, you don't have to just mine, you can do combat, but it's been my experience that high-sec Mining provides the safest, most consistent income And reading the above posts, you can get the 30 days for 200-250 Mil now, so hell, You can easily do that. Mine Veldspar, Make money, Buy orders for objects that have sell orders of 150% + Profit margin, sell orders for those objects, Mine in the meantime, Repeat... Your bank will be heavy in no time
Veldspahahahahahar. :(
Prepare to grind n mine!
At that point, if you were new to the game and had to make yourself that much money just to play, it really wouldn't be much like playing.
After 3 months you can blitz lvl4 missions and make 5-10 mil an hour. 30 days of gametime=350Mil [B][U]Here is how you do it:[/U][/B] [B]Start as caldari military.[/B] Do all the Tutorial missions and get free ships. [B]LVL 1 missions for Caldari Navy[/B] SHIP:Kestrel Just Blitz them until you get lvl 2 [B]LVL 2 missions for Caldari Navy[/B] SHIP: Caracal. Blitz until you get lvl 3's [B]LVL 3 missions for Caldari Navy[/B] SHIP: Passive HML Drake. SHIP2:Salvaging Cormorant.(4x Tractor 4x salvager) Run missions for ISK and salvage every mission [B]LVL 4 missions for Caldari Navy[/B] SHIP: Passive HML Drake with faction gear / Cruise Raven SHIP2:Salvaging Cormorant/ Salvaging Ferox After that go to a: Caldari Navy Raven --> Nighthawk -->Golem.

Some people transport Billions of Isk worth of goods. I remember there was a guy with 400Billion worth of stuff in his cargo and he got attacked and killed and lost it all There was another time where A Battleship targeted me and was waiting for me to shoot him because he had stolen from my Jetcan, and I had a friend around target him with the module that doesn't alert the enemy that you've targeted them, and then I targeted him as well, Since he stole from me, Me and my Friend could shoot him legally without Concord getting involved, but He couldn't shoot me or my friend until we shot first, Since I was the only one targeting him, to him, he targeted me and was waiting for me to shoot. I told my friend to shoot, he thought I shot, he shoots me, Concord Shoots and kills him, We loot his stuff and go Har Har Haaaar

Merry X-mas! Some people really need to think before they shoot.
eve online sounds fun. Maybe I need to buy it
[QUOTE=Poodle;21576246]eve online sounds fun. Maybe I need to buy it[/QUOTE] Do it, it's great. May 18th a new expansion comes out, be sure to check it out, you're'll be able to build stuff on planets and the graphics will be even better, not like that other popular MMO.
I solo-mine in high-sec with a 8 million SP character, and if I play the game for atleast x hours a week, I can make enough, barely, to pay for the next 30 days.
This kind of reminds me, I should start playing again since my uber desktop will be able to handle eve + another game with ease. Will help me afk mine a bit more.
Thought there was a thread, sry.
Anyone know why I get checksum and corrupted file errors no matter how I download or install it?
I found Eve fun at first, then I stopped because the trial ended. I decided to buy it, but it's boring as fuck now.

Hopefully this'll be something like 6th time lucky that I actually latch onto the game again. After I sold my first character, I haven't been able to get back into the game. My first was a Caldari mission runner like this, but now I keep making Minmatar PvP dudes. I have gotten a few kills, but then nothing else has happened, since my character is too young to join a decent pirate corp.
