On another note I was thinking of a curious idea I've seen in Eve. It deals with a long infiltration into a corporation; time-wise taking around a year to work your way up into the proper positions and access roles. Along the way you continue training your character and hang out and do things with people who come to call you friend.
Then comes the time when you want to move on or try something new (or this was your plan from the start) so you drain the corporation accounts and take what assets you can and ride off into the sunset with 20-30+ bISK.
Barring my distaste for this kind of attitude and treatment of those friends who came to trust you. Ignoring the fact of dishonesty and underhandedness which will forever reflect upon your character and integrity (not referring to the avatar you used to carry out your act). While also not counting the pettiness of the action involved, here's what I don't understand.
Why they biomass their character after the fact. They have transferred the ISK to another character and they biomass the one they've spent a year training. This just doesn't compute for me, while yes they have made off with a ton of ISK but at what cost (not counting ethics)? If they paid for the character with real money instead of PLEX, it is even more baffling. The current cost of a year of Eve is $131.40 USD, the cost PLEX wise hovers around 12 PLEX for a year or around 7 bISK.
$131.40 USD - Yearly subscription of Eve
$209.94 USD - Yearly subscription of PLEX
$7.2 bISK - Yearly subscription of PLEX
2700 SP/hr * 24 hrs * 365 days = 23.652 million SP trained
10-20 bISK for new character from the Bazaar (prices fluctuate depending on skills)
Assuming you didn't spend any RL money on this your total comes to 17.2 bISK doing it cheaply.
I don't know about you or how you price your time spent flying with people who may actually like to be around you or what you may consider the cost of creating your character the way you want them, or even being able to plan out the skills in the manner you like. Because of the way Eve does skills, the only quick fix to a year of training is buying off the character bazaar.
I just don't understand the concept of destroying something you spent a year working on for a little bit of ISK.
Not to mention, how much is your integrity worth?
